O Reliever of worry!
O Remover of grief!
O Merciful in this world and the next
and Compassionate in both!
Bless Muhammad and his Household,
relieve my worry,
and remove my grief!
O One, O Unique, O Eternal Refuge!
O He Who has not begotten,
nor has been begotten,
and equal to Him is not any one!272
and take away my affliction!
HERE YOU SHOULD RECITE THE THRONE VERSE (2:255), THE TWO SURAS OF TAKING
REFUGE (113-114), AND UNITY (112).
bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
take my soul while it is firm in sincerity,
cut off my need for this world,
make my desire for what is with Thee
become a yearning to meet Thee,
and give me true confidence in Thee!
I ask of Thee
the good of the writ that has been made
and I seek refuge with Thee
from the evil of the writ that has been made.273
I ask of Thee
the fear of The worshipers,
the worship of those humbly fearful of Thee,
the certainty of those who have confidence in Thee,
and the confidence of those who have faith in Thee.
O God, make
my desire in my asking
like the desire of Thy friends in their asking,
and my fear
like the fear of Thy friends!
Employ me in Thy good pleasure through works
in which I will not leave aside anything of Thy religion
fearing any of Thy creatures!
this is my need,
so make my desire for it great,
within it make manifest my excuse,
through it instil me with my argument,
and by means of it make well my body!
some rise in the morning
having trust or hope in other than Thee.
I rise in the morning,
and Thou art my trust and my hope in all affairs,
so decree for me those which are best in outcome
and deliver me from misguiding trials,
O Most Merciful of the merciful!
And God bless our chief,
Muhammad the Messenger of God, the chosen,
and his Household, the pure!
