زيارة الإمام علي بن موسى الرضا (ع)

أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لا إِلهَ إِلّا ﭐللهُ وَحْدَهُ لا شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّداً عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَأَنَّهُ سَيِّدُ ﭐلأَوَّلِينَ وَﭐلآخِرِينَ وَأَنَّهُ سَيِّدُ ﭐلأَنْبِيٰاءِ وَﭐلمُرْسَلِينَ.

In The Name Of Allah, The Beneficent, The Merciful

I bear witness that there is no god save Allah, the One; and there is no partner to share with Him. I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and His Messenger. Verily, he is the lord of the ancients and the moderns. Verily, he is the head of the Prophets and the Messengers.

اَللّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ عَبْدِكَ وَرَسُولِكَ وَنَبِيِّكَ وَسَيِّدِ خَلْقِكَ أَجْمَعِينَ صَلاةً لا يَقْوىٰ عَلىٰ إِحْصۤائِها غَيْرُكَ.

Curse of Allah be on those who subverted Thy “Favour”, suspected Thy Prophet to be guilty of falsehood, denied Thy revelation, laughted at Thy representatives, and gave preference to nonentities over the “Aali Muhammad”.

Blessings of Allah be on you, O Abal Hasan! Blessings of Allah be on your soul and your body! You suffered patiently and exercised self-control, although you were truthful and your truthfulness had been confirmed; Allah destroy him who gave the orders to kill you, and him who carrited them out.
