48) His Supplication on the Day of Sacrifice1 and on Friday

(48) وَ كَانَ مِنْ دُعَائِهِ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ يَوْمَ الْأَضْحَى وَ يَوْمَ الْجُمُعَةِ

1. اللَّهُمَّ هَذَا يَوْمٌ مُبَارَكٌ مَيْمُونٌ ،

وَ الْمُسْلِمُونَ فِيهِ مُجْتَمِعُونَ فِي أَقْطَارِ أَرْضِكَ ،

يَشْهَدُ السَّائِلُ مِنْهُمْ وَ الطَّالِبُ

وَ الرَّاغِبُ وَ الرَّاهِبُ

وَ أَنْتَ النَّاظِرُ فِي حَوَائِجِهِمْ ،

فَأَسْأَلُكَ بِجُودِكَ وَ كَرَمِكَ وَ هَوَانِ مَا سَأَلْتُكَ عَلَيْكَ

أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ .

2. وَ أَسْأَلُكَ اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّنَا

بِأَنَّ لَكَ الْمُلْكَ ، وَ لَكَ الْحَمْدَ ،

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ ،

الْحَلِيمُ الْكَرِيمُ الْحَنَّانُ الْمَنَّانُ

ذُو الْجَلَالِ وَ الْإِكْرَامِ ،

بَدِيعُ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَ الْأَرْضِ ،

مَهْمَا قَسَمْتَ بَيْنَ عِبَادِكَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ

مِنْ خَيْرٍ أَوْ عَافِيَةٍ أَوْ بَرَكَةٍ أَوْ هُدًى أَوْ عَمَلٍ بِطَاعَتِكَ ،

أَوْ خَيْرٍ تَمُنُّ بِهِ عَلَيْهِمْ تَهْدِيهِمْ بِهِ إِلَيْكَ ،

أَوْ تَرْفَعُ لَهُمْ عِنْدَكَ دَرَجَةً ،

أَوْ تُعْطِيهِمْ بِهِ خَيْراً مِنْ خَيْرِ الدُّنْيَا وَ الْآخِرَةِ

أَنْ تُوَفِّرَ حَظِّي وَ نَصِيبِي مِنْهُ .

3. وَ أَسْأَلُكَ اللَّهُمَّ

بِأَنَّ لَكَ الْمُلْكَ وَ الْحَمْدَ ،

لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ ،

أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ عَبْدِكَ وَ رَسُولِكَ

وَ حَبِيبِكَ وَ صِفْوَتِكَ وَ خِيَرَتِكَ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ ،

وَ عَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ الْأَبْرَارِ الطَّاهِرِينَ الْأَخْيَارِ

صَلَاةً لَا يَقْوَى عَلَى إِحْصَائِهَا إِلَّا أَنْتَ ،

وَ أَنْ تُشْرِكَنَا فِي صَالِحِ مَنْ دَعَاكَ

فِي هَذَا الْيَوْمِ مِنْ عِبَادِكَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ،

يَا رَبَّ الْعَالَمِينَ ،

وَ أَنْ تَغْفِرَ لَنَا وَ لَهُمْ ،

إِنَّكَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ قَدِيرٌ .

4. اللَّهُمَّ إِلَيْكَ تَعَمَّدْتُ بِحَاجَتِي ،

وَ بِكَ أَنْزَلْتُ الْيَوْمَ فَقْرِي وَ فَاقَتِي وَ مَسْكَنَتِي ،

وَ إِنِّي بِمَغْفِرَتِكَ وَ رَحْمَتِكَ أَوْثَقُ مِنِّي بِعَمَلِي ،

وَ لَمَغْفِرَتُكَ وَ رَحْمَتُكَ أَوْسَعُ مِنْ ذُنُوبِي ،

فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ ،

وَ تَوَلَّ قَضَاءَ كُلِّ حَاجَةٍ هِيَ لِي

بِقُدْرَتِكَ عَلَيْهَا ،

وَ تَيْسِيرِ ذَلِكَ عَلَيْكَ ،

وَ بِفَقْرِي إِلَيْكَ ، وَ غِنَاكَ عَنِّي ،

فَإِنِّي لَمْ أُصِبْ خَيْراً قَطُّ إِلَّا مِنْكَ ،

وَ لَمْ يَصْرِفْ عَنِّي سُوءاً قَطُّ أَحَدٌ غَيْرُكَ ،

وَ لَا أَرْجُو لِأَمْرِ آخِرَتِي وَ دُنْيَايَ سِوَاكَ .

5. اللَّهُمَّ مَنْ تَهَيَّأَ وَ تَعَبَّأَ وَ أَعَدَّ وَ اسْتَعَدَّ

لِوِفَادَةٍ إِلَى مَخْلُوقٍ

رَجَاءَ رِفْدِهِ وَ نَوَافِلِهِ

وَ طَلَبَ نَيْلِهِ وَ جَائِزَتِهِ ،

فَإِلَيْكَ يَا مَوْلَايَ كَانَتِ الْيَوْمَ

تَهْيِئَتِي وَ تَعْبِئَتِي وَ إِعْدَادِي وَ اسْتِعْدَادِي

رَجَاءَ عَفْوِكَ وَ رِفْدِكَ

وَ طَلَبَ نَيْلِكَ وَ جَائِزَتِكَ .

6. اللَّهُمَّ فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ ،

وَ لَا تُخَيِّبِ الْيَوْمَ ذَلِكَ مِنْ رَجَائِي ،

يَا مَنْ لَا يُحْفِيهِ سَائِلٌ

وَ لَا يَنْقُصُهُ نَائِلٌ ،

فَإِنِّي لَمْ آتِكَ ثِقَةً مِنِّي بِعَمَلٍ صَالِحٍ قَدَّمْتُهُ ،

وَ لَا شَفَاعَةِ مَخْلُوقٍ رَجَوْتُهُ

إِلَّا شَفَاعَةَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ أَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ

عَلَيْهِ وَ عَلَيْهِمْ سَلَامُكَ .

7. أَتَيْتُكَ مُقِرّاً بِالْجُرْمِ وَ الْإِسَاءَةِ إِلَى نَفْسِي ،

أَتَيْتُكَ أَرْجُو عَظِيمَ عَفْوِكَ

الَّذِي عَفَوْتَ بِهِ عَنِ الْخَاطِئِينَ ،

ثُمَّ لَمْ يَمْنَعْكَ طُولُ عُكُوفِهِمْ عَلَى عَظِيمِ الْجُرْمِ

أَنْ عُدْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ بِالرَّحْمَةِ وَ الْمَغْفِرَةِ .

8. فَيَا مَنْ رَحْمَتُهُ وَاسِعَةٌ ،

وَ عَفْوُهُ عَظِيمٌ ،

يَا عَظِيمُ يَا عَظِيمُ ،

يَا كَرِيمُ يَا كَرِيمُ ،

صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

وَ عُدْ عَلَيَّ بِرَحْمَتِكَ

وَ تَعَطَّفْ عَلَيَّ بِفَضْلِكَ

وَ تَوَسَّعْ عَلَيَّ بِمَغْفِرَتِكَ .

9. اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّ هَذَا الْمَقَامَ لِخُلَفَائِكَ وَ أَصْفِيَائِكَ

وَ مَوَاضِعَ أُمَنَائِكَ

فِي الدَّرَجَةِ الرَّفِيعَةِ الَّتِي اخْتَصَصْتَهُمْ بِهَا قَدِ ابْتَزُّوهَا ،

وَ أَنْتَ الْمُقَدِّرُ لِذَلِكَ ،

لَا يُغَالَبُ أَمْرُكَ ،

وَ لَا يُجَاوَزُ الْمَحْتُومُ مِنْ تَدْبِيرِكَ

كَيْفَ شِئْتَ وَ أَنَّى شِئْتَ ،

وَ لِمَا أَنْتَ أَعْلَمُ بِهِ

غَيْرُ مُتَّهَمٍ عَلَى خَلْقِكَ وَ لَا لِإِرَادَتِكَ

حَتَّى عَادَ صِفْوَتُكَ وَ خُلَفَاؤُكَ مَغْلُوبِينَ مَقْهُورِينَ مُبْتَزِّينَ ،

يَرَوْنَ حُكْمَكَ مُبَدَّلًا ،

وَ كِتَابَكَ مَنْبُوذاً ،

وَ فَرَائِضَكَ مُحَرَّفَةً عَنْ جِهَاتِ أَشْرَاعِكَ ،

وَ سُنَنَ نَبِيِّكَ مَتْرُوكَةً .

10. اللَّهُمَّ الْعَنْ أَعْدَاءَهُمْ مِنَ الْأَوَّلِينَ وَ الْآخِرِينَ ،

وَ مَنْ رَضِيَ بِفِعَالِهِمْ

وَ أَشْيَاعَهُمْ وَ أَتْبَاعَهُمْ .

11. اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ ،

إِنَّكَ حَمِيدٌ مَجِيدٌ ،

كَصَلَوَاتِكَ وَ بَرَكَاتِكَ وَ تَحِيَّاتِكَ

عَلَى أَصْفِيَائِكَ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَ آلِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ ،

وَ عَجِّلِ الْفَرَجَ وَ الرَّوْحَ وَ النُّصْرَةَ

وَ التَّمْكِينَ وَ التَّأْيِيدَ لَهُمْ .

12. اللَّهُمَّ وَ اجْعَلْنِي مِنْ أَهْلِ التَّوْحِيدِ وَ الْإِيمَانِ بِكَ ،

وَ التَّصْدِيقِ بِرَسُولِكَ ،

وَ الْأَئِمَّةِ الَّذِينَ حَتَمْتَ طَاعَتَهُمْ

مِمَّنْ يَجْرِي ذَلِكَ بِهِ وَ عَلَى يَدَيْهِ ،

آمِينَ رَبَّ الْعَالَمِينَ .

13. اللَّهُمَّ لَيْسَ يَرُدُّ غَضَبَكَ إِلَّا حِلْمُكَ ،

وَ لَا يَرُدُّ سَخَطَكَ إِلَّا عَفْوُكَ ،

وَ لا يُجِيرُ مِنْ عِقَابِكَ إِلَّا رَحْمَتُكَ ،

وَ لَا يُنْجِينِي مِنْكَ إِلَّا التَّضَرُّعُ إِلَيْكَ وَ بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ ،

فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ ،

وَ هَبْ لَنَا يَا إِلَهِي مِنْ لَدُنْكَ فَرَجاً بِالْقُدْرَةِ

الَّتِي بِهَا تُحْيِي أَمْوَاتَ الْعِبَادِ ،

وَ بِهَا تَنْشُرُ مَيْتَ الْبِلَادِ .

14. وَ لَا تُهْلِكْنِي يَا إِلَهِي غَمّاً

حَتَّى تَسْتَجِيبَ لِي ،

وَ تُعَرِّفَنِي الْإِجَابَةَ فِي دُعَائِي ،

وَ أَذِقْنِي طَعْمَ الْعَافِيَةِ إِلَى مُنْتَهَى أَجَلِي ،

وَ لَا تُشْمِتْ بِي عَدُوِّي ،

وَ لَا تُمَكِّنْهُ مِنْ عُنُقِي ،

وَ لَا تُسَلِّطْهُ عَلَيَّ

15. إِلَهِي إِنْ رَفَعْتَنِي فَمَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يَضَعُنِي ،

وَ إِنْ وَضَعْتَنِي فَمَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يَرْفَعُنِي ،

وَ إِنْ أَكْرَمْتَنِي فَمَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يُهِينُنِي ،

وَ إِنْ أَهَنْتَنِي فَمَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يُكْرِمُنِي ،

وَ إِنْ عَذَّبْتَنِي فَمَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يَرْحَمُنِي ،

وَ إِنْ أَهْلَكْتَنِي فَمَنْ ذَا الَّذِي يَعْرِضُ لَكَ فِي عَبْدِكَ ،

أَوْ يَسْأَلُكَ عَنْ أَمْرِهِ ،

وَ قَدْ عَلِمْتُ أَنَّهُ لَيْسَ فِي حُكْمِكَ ظُلْمٌ ،

وَ لَا فِي نَقِمَتِكَ عَجَلَةٌ ،

وَ إِنَّمَا يَعْجَلُ مَنْ يَخَافُ الْفَوْتَ ،

وَ إِنَّمَا يَحْتَاجُ إِلَى الظُّلْمِ الضَّعِيفُ ،

وَ قَدْ تَعَالَيْتَ يَا إِلَهِي عَنْ ذَلِكَ

عُلُوّاً كَبِيراً .

16. اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ ،

وَ لَا تَجْعَلْنِي لِلْبَلَاءِ غَرَضاً ،

وَ لَا لِنَقِمَتِكَ نَصَباً ،

وَ مَهِّلْنِي ، وَ نَفِّسْنِي ،

وَ أَقِلْنِي عَثْرَتِي ،

وَ لَا تَبْتَلِيَنِّي بِبَلَاءٍ عَلَى أَثَرِ بَلَاءٍ ،

فَقَدْ تَرَى ضَعْفِي وَ قِلَّةَ حِيلَتِي وَ تَضَرُّعِي إِلَيْكَ .

17. أَعُوذُ بِكَ اللَّهُمَّ الْيَوْمَ مِنْ غَضَبِكَ ،

فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ، وَ أَعِذْنِي .

18. وَ أَسْتَجِيرُ بِكَ الْيَوْمَ مِنْ سَخَطِكَ ،

فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ، وَ أَجِرْنِي

19. وَ أَسْأَلُكَ أَمْناً مِنْ عَذَابِكَ ،

فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ، وَ آمِنِّي .

20. وَ أَسْتَهْدِيكَ ،

فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ، وَ اهْدِنِي

21. وَ أَسْتَنْصِرُكَ ،

فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ، وَ انْصُرْنِي .

22. وَ أَسْتَرْحِمُكَ ،

فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ، وَ ارْحَمْنِي

23. وَ أَسْتَكْفِيكَ ،

فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ، وَ اكْفِنِي

24. وَ أَسْتَرْزِقُكَ ،

فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ، وَ ارْزُقْنِي

25. وَ أَسْتَعِينُكَ ،

فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ، وَ أَعِنِّي .

26. وَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ لِمَا سَلَفَ مِنْ ذُنُوبِي ،

فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ، وَ اغْفِرْ لِي .

27. وَ أَسْتَعْصِمُكَ ،

فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ، وَ اعْصِمْنِي ،

فَإِنِّي لَنْ أَعُودَ لِشَيْ‏ءٍ كَرِهْتَهُ مِنِّي

إِنْ شِئْتَ ذَلِكَ .

28. يَا رَبِّ يَا رَبِّ ،

يَا حَنَّانُ يَا مَنَّانُ ،

يَا ذَا الْجَلَالِ وَ الْإِكْرَامِ ،

صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ ،

وَ اسْتَجِبْ لِي جَمِيعَ مَا سَأَلْتُكَ

وَ طَلَبْتُ إِلَيْكَ وَ رَغِبْتُ فِيهِ إِلَيْكَ ،

وَ أَرِدْهُ وَ قَدِّرْهُ وَ اقْضِهِ وَ أَمْضِهِ ،

وَ خِرْ لِي فِيمَا تَقْضِي مِنْهُ ،

وَ بَارِكْ لِي فِي ذَلِكَ ، وَ تَفَضَّلْ عَلَيَّ بِهِ ،

وَ أَسْعِدْنِي بِمَا تُعْطِينِي مِنْهُ ،

وَ زِدْنِي مِنْ فَضْلِكَ وَ سَعَةِ مَا عِنْدَكَ ، فَإِنَّكَ وَاسِعٌ كَرِيمٌ ،

وَ صِلْ ذَلِكَ بِخَيْرِ الْآخِرَةِ وَ نَعِيمِهَا ،

يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ .

ثُمَّ تَدْعُو بِمَا بَدَا لَكَ ، وَ تُصَلِّي عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ أَلْفَ مَرَّةٍ هَكَذَا كَانَ يَفْعَلُ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ .

1- O God, this is a blessed and fortunate day,
within which the Muslims are gathered
in the quarters of Thy earth.
Among them are present the asker, the seeker,
the beseecher, the fearful,
while Thou art looking upon their needs.
So I ask Thee by Thy munificence and generosity - and easy upon Thee is what I ask Thee! -
that Thou blessest Muhammad and his Household.

2- And I ask Thee, O God, our Lord -
for Thine is the kingdom and Thine is the praise;
there is no god but Thou,
the Clement, the Generous,
the All-loving, the All-kind,
Possessor of majesty and munificence,
Originator of the heavens and the earth -
whenever Thou apportionest among Thy faithful servants
good, well being,
blessing, guidance, works in obedience to Thee,
or good through which
Thou art kind to them by guiding them to Thee,
or raisest them up a degree with Thee,
or givest them the good of this world or the next,
that Thou givest me amply my share and allotment of it.

3- And I ask Thee, O God -
for Thine is the kingdom and the praise;
there is no god but Thou -
that Thou blessest Muhammad,
Thy servant and Thy messenger,
Thy beloved and Thy selected friend,
Thy chosen from among Thy creation,
and the Household of Muhammad,
the pious, the pure, the chosen,
with a blessing no one has strength to count but Thou,
that Thou associatest us with
the most righteous of Thy faithful servants
who supplicate Thee today
- O Lord of the worlds!—
and that Thou forgivest us and them!
Surely Thou art powerful over everything.2

4- O God,
toward Thee I aim with my need
and before Thee I set my poverty, my neediness, my misery,
for I have more trust in Thy forgiveness and Thy mercy than in my own works.
Thy forgiveness and Thy mercy are vaster than my sins.
So bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
and attend to the accomplishment of every need of mine through Thy power over it,
its easiness for Thee,
my poverty toward Thee, and Thy freedom from need for me!
I will come upon no good whatsoever unless through Thee,
no one other than Thou will turn any evil away from me,
and I have hope in none but Thee for my affair
in the next world and in this world.

5- O God, if anyone has ever arranged, made ready,
prepared, and drawn himself up
to be received by a creature
in hope of his support and awards
and seeking to attain him and his prize,
then today toward Thee, my Master, is
my arrangement, my making ready, my preparation, and my drawing up,
in hope of Thy pardon and support
and in seeking to attain to Thee and Thy prize.

6- O God, so bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad
and disappoint not my hope in that today!
O He who is not troubled by those who ask
and diminished by those who attain their desire!
I come not before Thee trusting in a righteous work I have sent ahead,
nor in the intercession of any creature in whom
I have hope,
except the intercession of Muhammad
and the Folk of his House
(upon him and upon them be Thy peace).

7- I come to Thee admitting sin and evildoing toward myself.
I come to Thee hoping for Thy abounding pardon through which Thou hast pardoned the offenders,
while their long persistence in dreadful sin
did not prevent Thee
from returning toward them with mercy and forgiveness!

8- O He whose mercy is wide
and whose pardon is abounding!
O All-mighty! O All-mighty!
O All-generous! O All-generous!
Bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
return toward me through Thy mercy,
be tender toward me through Thy bounty,
and spread out Thy forgiveness upon me!

9- O God,
this station belongs to Thy vicegerents, Thy chosen,
while the places of Thy trusted ones
in the elevated degree which Thou hast singled out for them have been forcibly stripped!3
But Thou art the Ordainer of that -
Thy command is not overcome,
the inevitable in Thy governing is not overstepped!
However Thou willest and whenever Thou willest!
In that which Thou knowest best,
Thou art not accused for Thy creation or Thy will!
Then Thy selected friends, Thy vicegerents,
were overcome, vanquished, forcibly stripped;
they see Thy decree replaced,
Thy Book discarded,
Thy obligations distorted from the aims of Thy laws,
and the Sunna of Thy Prophet abandoned!

10- O God, curse their enemies among those of old and the later folk,
and all those pleased with their acts,
and their adherents and followers!

11- O God, bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad
(surely Thou art All-laudable, All-glorious)
like Thy blessing, benedictions, and salutations
upon Thy chosen Abraham and the people of Abraham!
And hasten for them relief, ease, help,
strengthening, and confirmation!

12- O God, and make me one of the people who profess Thy Unity, have faith in Thee,
and attest to Thy Messenger
and the Imams toward whom Thou hast enjoined obedience,
and one of those through whom and at whose hands this takes place!4
Amen, Lord of the worlds!

13- O God, nothing repels Thy wrath but Thy clemency,
nothing repels Thy displeasure but Thy pardon,
nothing grants sanctuary from Thy punishment but Thy mercy,
and nothing will deliver me from Thee except pleading to Thee before Thee,5
so bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
and give us on Thy part, my God, relief by means of the power
through which Thou bringest the dead servants to life and revivest the dead lands.6

14- Destroy me not through gloom, my God,
before Thou respondest to me
and givest me the knowledge of Thy response to
my supplication!
Let me taste the flavour of well-being to the end of my term!
And let not my enemy gloat over me,
place not my neck in his power,
and give him not authority over me!

15- My God, if Thou raisest me up,
who is there to push me down?
If Thou pushest me down,
who is there to raise me up?
If Thou honourest me,
who is there to humiliate me?
If Thou humiliatest me,
who is there to honour me?
If Thou chastisest me,
who is there to have mercy upon me?
If Thou destroyest me,
who is there to stand up for Thy servant against Thee
or ask Thee about his affair?
But I know that there is no wrong in Thy decree
and no hurry in Thy vengeance.
He alone hurries who fears to miss,
and only the weak needs to wrong.
But Thou art exalted, my God,
high indeed above all that!

16- O God, bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
make me not the target of affliction
nor the object of Thy vengeance,
respite me, comfort me,
release me from my stumble,
and afflict me not with an affliction in the wake of an affliction,
for Thou hast seen my frailty, the paucity of my stratagems, and my pleading to Thee!

17- I seek refuge in Thee today, my God, from Thy wrath,
so bless Muhammad and his Household
and give me refuge!

18- I seek sanctuary in Thee today from Thy displeasure,
so bless Muhammad and his Household,
and give me sanctuary!

19- I ask Thee security from Thy chastisement,
so bless Muhammad and his Household,
and give me security!

20- I seek guidance from Thee,
so bless Muhammad and his Household
and guide me!

21- I seek help from Thee,
so bless Muhammad and his Household
and help me!

22- I ask Thee for mercy,
so bless Muhammad and his Household
and have mercy upon me!

23- I seek sufficiency from Thee,
so bless Muhammad and his Household
and suffice me!

24- I seek provision from Thee,
so bless Muhammad and his Household
and provide for me!

25- I seek assistance from Thee,
so bless Muhammad and his Household
and assist me!

26- I pray forgiveness for my past sins,
so bless Muhammad and his Household
and forgive me!

27- I ask Thee to preserve me from sin,
so bless Muhammad and his Household
and preserve me,
for I will not return to anything Thou dislikest from me,
if Thou willest that!

28- My Lord! My Lord!
O All-loving! O All-kind!
O Possessor of majesty and munificence!
Bless Muhammad and his Household,
and grant me everything that I ask from Thee,
seek from Thee, and beseech from Thee!
Will it, ordain it, decree it, and accomplish it!
Give me good in that of it which Thou decreest!
Bless me in that,
be gratuitously bountiful toward me through it,
make me happy in that of it which Thou givest to me,
and increase me in Thy bounty
and the plenty of what is with Thee,
for Thou art Boundless, Generous!
And link that to the good and the bliss of the next world,
O Most Merciful of the merciful!

Then you supplicate as seems proper to you and you call down blessings on Muhammad and his Household one thousand times. this is what he used to do (peace be upon him)

  • 1. That is, the tenth of Dhu l-Hijja, which marks the end of the hajj and is one of the two major festivals (along with the feast of fastbreaking) celebrated universally throughout the Islamic world.
  • 2. 3:26
  • 3. By 'this station' is meant the leading of the prayer of Friday and of the Day of Sacrifice. The latter of these prayers is obligatory according to the Shi'ites, in contrast to the Sunnis. Zayn al-Abidin alludes to the Shi'ite view that the Imams are the rightful leaders of these prayers for all Islam, not the Umayyad caliphs and their representatives. In explaining the meaning of this passage, Sayyid ''Alikhan quotes a hadith from Ja'far al-Sadiq: 'Both festivals of the Muslims, that of fastbreaking and that of sacrifice, renew the sorrow of the Household of Muhammad, for they see therein their right in the hands of others.'
