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!
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!
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
whose sufficiency Thou hast guaranteed!
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!
And then Thou hast said,
So by the Lord of heaven and earth,
it is as surely true as that you have speech!126
