Du’a before beginning Salatul Layl

بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْمِ

اَللّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

اَللّهُمَّ اِنِّي اَتَوَجَّهُ اِلَيْكَ بِنَبِيِّكَ

نَبِيِّ الرَّحْمَةِ وَ آلِهِ

وَ اُقَدِّمُهُمْ بَيْنَ يَدَيْ حَوَ ائِجِي

فَاجْعَلْنِي بِهِمْ وَجِيْهًا

فِي الدُّنْيَا وَ الآخِرَةِ

وَ مِنَ الْمُقَرَّبِيْنَ

اَللّهُمَّ ارْحَمْنِي بِهِمْ

English translation of Du’a before beginning Salatul Layl

In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful
O Allah bless Muhammad and his family
O Allah I turn to You through Your Prophet
the Prophet of mercy
and (through) his family
and I place them in front of my needs
so make me
through them,
respected, in the world
and in the hereafter
and from the near ones
O Allah have mercy on me
through them

وَ لاَ تُعَذِّبْنِي بِهِمْ

وَ اهْدِنِي بِهِمْ

وَ لاَ تُضِلَّنِي بِهِمْ

وَ ارْزُقْنِي بِهِمْ

وَ لاَ تَحْرِمْنِي بِهِمْ

وَ اقْضِ لِي حَوَائِجَ الدُّنْيَا وَ الآَخِرَةِ

اِنَّكَ عَلى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيْرٌ

وَ بِكُلِّ شَيْءٍ عَلِيْمٌ

and do not punish me
through them
and guide me
through them
and do not lead me astray
through them
and grant me sustenance
through them
and do not deny me
through them
and fulfill my needs
of the world and the hereafter
Surely You have power over all things
and (You) are aware of all things

Du’a after 8 raka’ats of Nafilah of Layl

بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْمِ

اَللّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

اَللّهُمَّ اَنْتَ الْحَيُّ الْقَيُّوْمُ

اَلْعَلِيُّ الْعَظِيْمُ

اَلْخَالِقُ الرَّازِقُ اَلْمُحْيِي الْمُمِيْتُ

اَلْبَدِيئُ الْبَدِيْعُ

لَكَ الْكَرَمُ وَ لَكَ الْجُوْدُ

وَ لَكَ الْمَنُّ وَ لَكَ الاَمْرُ

وَحْدَكَ لاَ شَرِيْكَ لَكَ

English translation of Du’a after 8 raka’ats of Nafilah of Layl

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
O Allah bless Muhammad and his family

O Allah You are the Ever Living, the Eternal
the Elevated, the Mighty
the Creator, the Sustainer
the One who gives life
and the One who causes to die
the Beginner, the Unique

For You is nobility
and for You is generosity
and for You is grace
and for You is the command

You are One
there is no partner for You

يَا خَالِقُ يَا رَازِقُ

يَا مُحْيِي يَا مُمِيْتُ

يَا بَدِيْعُ يَا رَفِيْعُ

اَسْأَلُكَ اَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

وَ اَنْ تَرْحَمَ ذُلِّ بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ

وَ تَضَرُّعِي اِلَيْكَ

وَحْشَتِي مِنَ النَّاسِ

وَ اُنْسِي بِكَ

O Creator, O Sustainer
O the One who gives life
and the One who causes to die
O the Unique, the Sublime
I ask you to bless Muhammad and his family
and to have mercy on my lowliness
before You
and my beseeching You
and my loneliness from people
and my intimacy with You

Du’a after Salat al-Shaf’a

بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْمِ

اَللّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

اِلهِي تَعَرَّضَ لَكَ فِي هذَا اللَّيْلِ الْمُتَعَرِّضُوْنَ

وَ قَصَدَكَ فِيْهِ الْقَاصِدُوْنَ

وَ اَمَّلَ فَضْلَكَ وَ مَعْرُوْفَكَ الطَّالِبُوْنَ

وَ لَكَ فِي هذَا اللَّيْلِ نَفَحَاتٌ

وَ جَوَائِزُ وَ عَطَايَا وَ مَوَاهِبُ

تَمُنُّ بِهَا عَلى مَنْ تَشَاءُ مِنْ عِبَادِكَ

وَ تَمْنَعُهَا مَنْ لَمْ تَسْبِقُ لَهُ الْعِنَايَةُ مِنْكَ

English translation of Du’a after Salat al-Shaf’a

In the name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful
O Allah bless Muhammad and his family

O Allah, on this night
the seekers have sought You
and the aspirers have aspired for You
and the searchers have hoped
for Your blessings and grace

For You have in this night, hidden bounties
and rewards and presents and gifts
which You bestow upon whom you please
from Your servants
and You deny them to one who has not reached Your regard

وَ هَا اَنَا ذَا عُبَيْدُكَ الْفَقِيْرُ اِلَيْكَ

اَلْمُؤَمِّلُ فَضْلَكَ وَ مَعْرُوْفَكَ

فَاِنْ كُنْتَ يَا مَوْلاَيَ تَفَضَّلْتَ فِي هذِهِ اللَّيْلَةِ

عَلى اَحَدٍ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ

وَ عُدْتَ عَلَيْهِ بِعَائِدَةٍ مِنْ عَطْفِكَ

فَصَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

اَلطَّيِّبِيْنَ الطَّاهِرِيْنَ

اَلْخَيِّرِيْنَ اَلْفَاضِلِيْنَ

وَ جُدْ عَلَيَّ بِطَوْلِكَ وَ مَعْرُوْفِكَ

يَا رَبَّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ

Here I am,
Your abject servant
in need of You
hopeful of Your blessings and grace
So, O my Master
if You have bestowed blessings
on this night
on anyone of Your creatures
and turned to him with affection
then bless Muhammad and his family
the pure, the purified,
the virtuous ones
the excellent ones
and favor me with Your grace and bounty
O Lord of the worlds

وَ صَلَّى اللّهُ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ

خَاتَمِ النَّبِيِّيْنَ

وَ آلِهِ الطَّاهِرِيْنَ وَ سَلَّمَ تَسْلِيْمًا

اِنَّ اللّهَ حَمِيْدٌ مَجِيْدٌ

اَللّهُمَّ اِنِّي اَدْعُوْكَ كَمَا اَمَرْتَ

فَاسْتَجِبْ لِي كَمَا وَعَدْتَ

اِنَّكَ لاَ تُخْلِفُ الْمِيْعَادَ

And send blessings on Muhammad
the seal of the Prophets
and his family, the Purified
and salute them with
a perfect salutation
Surely Allah is praiseworthy, Glorious
O Allah I have supplicated to You
as You have commanded
then answer me as You have promised
Surely You do not break Your promises.

Du’a after Salatul Witr

This du’a is called Du’a al-Hazeen, the sorrowful du’a. It should be recited softly and sorrowfully

.

بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيْمِ

اَللّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

اُنَاجِيْكَ يَا مَوْجُوْدًا فِي كُلِّ مَكَانٍ

لَعَلَّكَ تَسْمَعُ نِدَائِي

فَقَدْ عَظُمَ جُرْمِي وَ قَلَّ حَيَائِي

مَوْلاَيَ يَا مَوْلاَيَ

اَيُّ اْلاَهْوَالِ اَتَذَكَّرُ وَ اَيُّهَا اَنْسى

وَ لَوْ لَمْ يَكُنْ اِلاَّ الْمَوْتُ لَكَفى

كَيْفَ وَ مَا بَعْدَ الْمَوْتِ اَعْظَمُ وَ اَدْهى

English translation of Du’a after Salatul Witr

In the name of Allah, The Beneficent, the Merciful
O Allah bless Muhammad and his family
I whisper unto You
O one who is present in every place
so that You may hear my call
for surely my sin is excessive
and my shame is less
My Master, O my Master
which of the terrifying states shall I remember
and which of them shall I forget
for if there was nothing except death
it would be enough
then what about after death
greater and much worse?

مَوْلاَيَ يَا مَوْلاَيَ حَتَّى مَتى وَ اِلى مَتى

اَقُوْلُ لَكَ الْعُتْبى مَرَّةً بَعْدَ اُخْرى

ثُمَّ لاَ تَجِدُ عِنْدِي صِدْقًا وَ لاَ وَفَاءً

فَيَا غَوْثَاهُ ثُمَّ وَا غَوْثَاهُ بِكَ يَا اَللّهُ

مِنْ هَوىً قَدْ غَلَبَنِي

وَ مِنْ عَدُوٍّ قَدِ اسْتَكْلَبَ عَلَيَّ

وَ مِنْ دُنْياً قَدْ تَزَيَّنَتْ لِي

وَ مِنْ نَفْسٍ اَمَّارَةٍ بِالسُّوْءِ اِلاَّ مَا رَحِمَ رَبِّي

مَوْلاَيَ يَا مَوْلاَيَ

اِنْ كُنْتَ رَحِمْتَ مِثْلِي فَارْحَمْنِي

My master O my Master
up to when and till when
will I say, I am to blame,
again and again,
but then You do not find any truth or loyalty in me?

I call for help
and I call for help, O Allah
from desires which have overpowered me
and from the enemy which has pounced on me
and from the world which attracts me
and from the soul that leads towards evil except that on which my Lord has mercy (12:53)

My master O my master
if You have had mercy on the likes of me
then have mercy on me

وَ اِنْ كُنْتَ قَبِلْتَ مِثْلِي فَاقْبَلْنِي

يَا قَابِلَ السَّحَرَةِ اقْبَلْنِي

يَا مَنْ لَمْ اَزَلْ اَتَعَرَّفُ مِنْهُ الْحُسْنى

يَا مَنْ يُغَذِّيْنِي بِالنِّعَمِ صَبَاحًا وَ مَسَاءً

اِرْحَمْنِي يَوْمَ آتِيْكَ فَرْدًا

شَاخِصًا اِلَيْكَ بَصَرِي مُقَلَّدًا عَمَلِي

قَدْ تَبَرَّأَ جَمِيْعُ الْخَلْقِ مِنِّي

نَعَمْ وَ اَبِي وَ اُمِّي وَ مَنْ كَانَ لَهُ كَدِّي وَ سَعْيِي

فَاِنْ لَمْ تَرْحَمْنِي فَمَنْ يَرْحَمُنِي

وَ مَنْ يُؤْنِسُ فِي الْقَبْرِ وَحْشَتِي

and if You have accepted from the likes of me
then accept from me
O One who accepts the early morning prayer
accept me,
O One who, I still know only good from Him
O One who nourishes me with blessings
morning and evening
have mercy on me when I come to You
alone,
my glance fixed on You
my actions carried on my neck
When all of creation
will withdraw away from me
yes, even my father and mother
and those for whom I worked and struggled
then if You will not have mercy on me
who will have mercy on me
who will give me solace
from the loneliness of the grave

وَ مَنْ يُنْطِقُ لِسَانِي اِذَا خَلَوْتُ بِعَمَلِي

وَ سَأَلْتَنِي عَمَّا اَنْتَ اَعْلَمُ بِهِ مِنِّي

فَاِنْ قُلْتُ نَعَمْ فَاَيْنَ الْمَهْرَبُ مِنْ عَدْلِكَ

وَ اِنْ قُلْتُ لَمْ اَفْعَلْ

قُلْتَ اَلَمْ اَكُنِ الشَّاهِدَ عَلَيْكَ

فَعَفْوُكَ عَفْوُكَ يَا مَوْلاَيَ قَبْلَ سَرَابِيْلِ الْقَطِرَانَ

عَفْوُكَ عَفْوُكَ يَا مَوْلاَيَ قَبْلَ جَهَنَّمَ وَ النِّيْرَان

عَفْوُكَ عَفْوُكَ يَا مَوْلاَيَ

قَبْلَ اَنْ تُغَلَّ الاَيْدِي اِلى الاَعْنَاقِ

يَا اَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِيْنَ وَ خَيْرَ الْغَافِرِيْنَ

and who will make me speak
when I am alone with my deeds
and when You will ask me
about what You know better than me?

Then if I say yes (to my sins)
where will be the escape from Your Justice?
And if I say I did not commit it
You will say was I not a witness over you?
So (I beseech) Your Forgiveness
Your Pardon
O my master
before the wearing of the clothes of Hell
Your Forgiveness Your Pardon O my Master
before the Hell and the Fire
Your Forgiveness Your Forgiveness
O my Master
before the hands are tied to the necks
O the most Merciful
and the best of Forgivers
