35) His Supplication in Satisfaction with the Decree

(35) وَ كَانَ مِنْ دُعَائِهِ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ فِي الرِّضَا إِذَا نَظَرَ إِلَى أَصْحَابِ الدُّنْيَا

His Supplication in Satisfaction when he Looked upon the Companions of this World

1- Praise belongs to God in satisfaction with God's decision!
I bear witness that God has apportioned the livelihoods of His servants with justice
and undertaken bounty for all His creatures.

2- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household,
tempt me not with what Thou hast given to Thy creatures
and tempt them not with what Thou hast withheld from me.
Lest I envy Thy creatures
and despise Thy decision!

3- O God, bless Muhammad and his Household,
delight my soul through Thy decree,
expand my breast through the instances of Thy decision,
give to me a trust through which I may admit
that Thy decree runs only to the best,
and let my gratitude to Thee for what Thou hast taken away from me
be more abundant than my gratitude to Thee
for what Thou hast conferred upon me!

4- Preserve me from imagining any meanness
in someone who is destitute
or imagining any superiority in someone who possesses wealth,
for the noble is he whom obedience to Thee has ennobled
and the exalted is he whom worship of Thee has exalted!

5. So bless Muhammad and his Household,
give us to enjoy a wealth
which does not run out,
confirm us with an exaltation which will never be lost,
and let us roam freely
in the kingdom of everlastingness!
Surely Thou art the One, the Unique, the Eternal Refuge;
Thou hast not begotten,
nor hast Thou been begotten,
and equal to Thee is not any one!1

1. الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رِضًى بِحُكْمِ اللَّهِ ،

شَهِدْتُ أَنَّ اللَّهَ قَسَمَ مَعَايِشَ عِبَادِهِ بِالْعَدْلِ ،

وَ أَخَذَ عَلَى جَمِيعِ خَلْقِهِ بِالْفَضْلِ .

2. اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ،

وَ لَا تَفْتِنِّي بِمَا أَعْطَيْتَهُمْ ،

وَ لَا تَفْتِنْهُمْ بِمَا مَنَعْتَنِي

فَأَحْسُدَ خَلْقَكَ ،

وَ أَغْمَطَ حُكْمَكَ .

3. اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ،

وَ طَيِّبْ بِقَضَائِكَ نَفْسِي ،

وَ وَسِّعْ بِمَوَاقِعِ حُكْمِكَ صَدْرِي ،

وَ هَبْ لِيَ الثِّقَةَ لِأُقِرَّ مَعَهَا

بِأَنَّ قَضَاءَكَ لَمْ يَجْرِ إِلَّا بِالْخِيَرَةِ ،

وَ اجْعَلْ شُكْرِي لَكَ عَلَى مَا زَوَيْتَ عَنِّي

أَوْفَرَ مِنْ شُكْرِي إِيَّاكَ عَلَى مَا خَوَّلْتَنِي

4. وَ اعْصِمْنِي مِنْ أَنْ أَظُنَّ بِذِي عَدَمٍ خَسَاسَةً ،

أَوْ أَظُنَّ بِصَاحِبِ ثَرْوَةٍ فَضْلًا ،

فَإِنَّ الشَّرِيفَ مَنْ شَرَّفَتْهُ طَاعَتُكَ ،

وَ الْعَزِيزَ مَنْ أَعَزَّتْهُ عِبَادَتُكَ

5. فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ،

وَ مَتِّعْنَا بِثَرْوَةٍ لَا تَنْفَدُ ،

وَ أَيِّدْنَا بِعِزٍّ لَا يُفْقَدُ ،

وَ اسْرَحْنَا فِي مُلْكِ الْأَبَدِ ،

إِنَّكَ الْوَاحِدُ الْأَحَدُ الصَّمَدُ ،

الَّذِي لَمْ تَلِدْ وَ لَمْ تُولَدْ

وَ لَمْ يَكُنْ لَكَ كُفُواً أَحَدٌ .

  • 1. Sura 112
