29) His Supplication when his Provision was Stinted

(29) وَ كَانَ مِنْ دُعَائِهِ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ إِذَا قُتِّرَ عَلَيْهِ الرِّزْقُ

1. اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّكَ ابْتَلَيْتَنَا فِي أَرْزَاقِنَا بِسُوءِ الظَّنِّ ،

وَ فِي آجَالِنَا بِطُولِ الْأَمَلِ

حَتَّى الْتَمَسْنَا أَرْزَاقَكَ مِنْ عِنْدِ الْمَرْزُوقِينَ ،

وَ طَمِعْنَا بِآمَالِنَا فِي أَعْمَارِ الْمُعَمَّرِينَ .

2. فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ،

وَ هَبْ لَنَا يَقِيناً صَادِقاً

تَكْفِينَا بِهِ مِنْ مَئُونَةِ الطَّلَبِ ،

وَ أَلْهِمْنَا ثِقَةً خَالِصَةً تُعْفِينَا بِهَا مِنْ شِدَّةِ النَّصَبِ

3. وَ اجْعَلْ مَا صَرَّحْتَ بِهِ مِنْ عِدَتِكَ فِي وَحْيِكَ ،

وَ أَتْبَعْتَهُ مِنْ قَسَمِكَ فِي كِتَابِكَ ،

قَاطِعاً لِاهْتِمَامِنَا بِالرِّزْقِ

الَّذِي تَكَفَّلْتَ بِهِ ،

وَ حَسْماً لِلِاشْتِغَالِ بِمَا ضَمِنْتَ الْكِفَايَةَ لَهُ

4. فَقُلْتَ وَ قَوْلُكَ الْحَقُّ الْأَصْدَقُ ،

وَ أَقْسَمْتَ

وَ قَسَمُكَ الْأَبَرُّ الْأَوْفَى

وَ فِي السَّمَاءِ رِزْقُكُمْ وَ مَا تُوعَدُونَ .

5. ثُمَّ قُلْتَ

فَوَ رَبِّ السَّمَاءِ وَ الْأَرْضِ إِنَّهُ لَحَقٌّ مِثْلَ مَا أَنَّكُمْ تَنْطِقُونَ

1- O God, Thou hast tried us with
distrust in our provisions
and the expectation of long lives,
until we begged for provisions from those who are provided
and craved in our expectations
the life-spans of the long-lived!

2- So bless Muhammad and his Household,
give us a true certainty
that will suffice us the burden of seeking,
and inspire us with a sincere trust
that will release us from the hardship of exertion!

3- Let Thy clear promise in Thy Revelation
which Thou hast followed in Thy Book with Thy oath
cut off our worry about the provision
for which Thou hast made Thyself responsible
and sever our occupation with everything
whose sufficiency Thou hast guaranteed!

4- For Thou hast said
- and Thy word is the most truthful truth -
and Thou hast sworn
- and Thy oath is the most kept and fulfilled -
In the heaven are your provision and everything you are promised!

5- And then Thou hast said,
So by the Lord of heaven and earth,
it is as surely true as that you have speech!1
