Another Dua as Taught by Imam Sadiq(as) Translated by Ali Quri- Pdf 

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent the Merciful,

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent the Merciful,
O Allah bless Muhammad and his family O Allah I bear witness that this is Your Revealed Book from You, To Your messenger Muhammad son of Abdullâh, Allah’s blessings be on him and his family. And it is Your Spoken Words, through the tongue of Your Prophet, You have made it a guide from You to Your creation, And a connecting rope between You and Your servants. O Allah I have opened Your Covenant and Your Book. O Allah, so make my looking at it an act of worship and my reciting it a pondering, and my pondering over it, a way to derive lessons. [O Allah] include me from those who are advised by the narrations of its advices, and who avoid Your disobedience. [O Allah] do not seal my ears when I’m reciting it and do not place a curtain over my sight, Nor make my recitation a recitation lacking pondering, Rather make me from among those who ponder over its verses and its rules, Deriving the ways to Your religion, and do not make me heedless when I’m looking at it, nor make my reciting a waste. Surely You are the Most Gentle, the Most Merciful.

In the name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful

بِسْمِ اللّٰهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيم                                                                                           ِ In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
دُعَاؤُهُ عِنْدَ خَتْمِهِ الْقُرْآنَUpon Completing a Reading of the Qur'an
1
O God, Thou hast helped me complete Thy Book,
أَللَّهُمَّ إنَّكَ أَعَنْتَنِي عَلَى خَتْمِ كِتَابِكَ
1
2
which Thou sent down as a light and appointed as a guardian
الَّذِي أَنْزَلْتَهُ نُوراً وَجَعَلْتَهُ مُهَيْمِناً
2
3
over every book Thou hast sent down,
عَلَى كُلِّ كِتَاب أَنْزَلْتَهُ،
3
4
preferring it over every narrative which Thou hast recounted,
وَفَضَّلْتَهُ عَلَى كُلِّ حَدِيث قَصَصْتَهُ،
4
5
a separator, through which Thou hast separated Thy lawful from Thy unlawful,
وَفُرْقاناً فَرَقْتَ بِهِ بَيْنَ حَلالِكَ وَحَرَامِكَ،
5
6
a Qur'an, through which Thou hast made plain the approaches to Thy ordinances,
وَقُرْآناً أَعْرَبْتَ بِهِ عَنْ شَرَائِعِ أَحْكَامِكَ،
6
7
a book, which Thou hast distinguished very distinctly for Thy servants,
وَكِتَاباً فَصَّلْتَهُ لِعِبَادِكَ تَفْصِيلاً،
7
8
a revelation, which Thou hast sent down, a sending down, upon Thy prophet Muhammad (Thy blessings be upon him and his Household).
وَوَحْياً أَنْزَلْتَهُ عَلَى نَبِيِّكَ مُحَمَّد صَلَوَاتُكَ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ تَنْزِيلاً،
8
9
Thou appointed it a light through following which we may be guided from the shadows of error and ignorance,
وَجَعَلْتَهُ نُوراً نَهْتَدِي مِنْ ظُلَمِ الضَّلاَلَةِ وَالْجَهَـالَةِ بِـاتِّبَاعِـهِ،
9
10
a healing for him who turns ear toward hearing it with the understanding of attestation,
وَشِفَـاءً لِمَنْ أَنْصَتَ بِفَهْم التَّصْدِيقِ إلَى اسْتِمَاعِهِ،
10
11
a just balance whose tongue does not incline away from truth,
وَمِيزَانَ قِسْط لاَ يَحِيْفُ عَنِ الْحَقِّ لِسَانُهُ،
11
12
a light of guidance whose proof is not extinguished before the witnesses,
وَنُورَ هُدىً لاَ يُطْفَأُ عَنِ الشَّاهِدِينَ بُرْهَانُهُ،
12
13
and a guidepost of deliverance, so that he who repairs straightway to its prescription will not go astray
وَعَلَمَ نَجَاة لاَ يَضِلُّ مَنْ أَمَّ قَصْدَ سُنَّتِهِ
13
14
and he who clings to its preservation's handhold will not be touched by the hands of disasters.
وَلاَ تَنَالُ أَيْدِي الْهَلَكَاتِ مَنْ تَعَلَّقَ بِعُرْوَةِ عِصْمَتِهِ،
14
15
O God, since Thou hast given us help to recite it
أَللَّهُمَّ فَإذْ أَفَدْتَنَا الْمعُونَةَ عَلَى تِلاَوَتِهِ،
15
16
and made smooth the roughness of our tongues through the beauty of its expression,
وَسَهَّلْتَ جَوَاسِيَ أَلْسِنَتِنَا بِحُسْنِ عِبَارَتِهِ،
16
17
place us among those who observe it as it should be observed,
فَاجْعَلْنَا مِمَّنْ يَرْعَاهُ حَقَّ رِعَايَتِهِ،
17
18
serve Thee by adhering in submission to the firm text of its verses,
وَيَدِينُ لَكَ بِاعْتِقَادِ التَّسْلِيْمِ لِمُحْكَمِ آياتِهِ،
18
19
and seek refuge in admitting both its ambiguous parts and the elucidations of its clear signs!
وَيَفْزَعُ إلى الإِقْرَارِ بِمُتَشَابِهِهِ وَمُوضَحَاتِ بَيِّناتِهِ.
19
20
O God, Thou sent it down upon Thy prophet
أللَّهُمَّ إنَّكَ أَنْزَلْتَهُ عَلَى نَبِيِّكَ
20
21
Muhammad (God bless him and his household) in summary form,
مُحَمَّد صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ مُجْمَلاً،
21
22
Thou inspired him with the science of its wonders to complement it,
وَأَلْهَمْتَهُ عِلْمَ عَجَائِبِهِ مُكَمَّلاً،
22
23
Thou made us the heirs of its knowledge as interpreters,
وَوَرَّثْتَنَا عِلْمَهُ مُفَسَّراً،
23
24
Thou made us to surpass him who is ignorant of its knowledge,
وَفَضَّلْتَنَا عَلَى مَنْ جَهِلَ عِلْمَهُ،
24
25
and Thou gave us strength over it to raise us above those not able to carry it.
وَقَوَّيْتَنَا عَلَيْهِ لِتَرْفَعَنَا فَوْقَ مَنْ لَمْ يُطِقْ حَمْلَهُ.
25
26
O God, just as Thou hast appointed our hearts as its carriers
أللَّهُمَّ فَكَمَا جَعَلْتَ قُلُوبَنَا لَهُ حَمَلَةً،
26
27
and made known to us through Thy mercy its nobility and excellence,
وَعَرَّفْتَنَا بِرَحْمَتِكَ شَرَفَهُ وَفَضْلَهُ،
27
28
so also bless Muhammad, its preacher,
فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد الْخَطِيْبِ بِهِ،
28
29
and his Household, its guardians,
وَعَلَى آلِهِ الْخُزّانِ لَهُ،
29
30
and place us among those who confess that it has come from Thee,
وَاجْعَلْنَا مِمَّنْ يَعْتَرِفُ بِأَنـَّهُ مِنْ عِنْدِكَ
30
31
lest doubt about attesting to it assail us,
حَتَّى لاَ يُعَارِضَنَا الشَّكُّ فِي تَصْدِيقِهِ
31
32
or deviation from its straightforward path shake us!
وَلاَ يَخْتَلِجَنَا الزَّيْغُ عَنْ قَصْدِ طَرِيقِهِ.
32
33
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِـهِ،
33
34
and make us one of those who hold fast to its cord,
وَاجْعَلْنَا مِمَّنْ يَعْتَصِمُ بِحَبْلِهِ،
34
35
seek haven from its ambiguities in its fortified stronghold,
وَيَـأْوِي مِنَ الْمُتَشَـابِهَاتِ إلَى حِرْزِ مَعْقِلِهِ،
35
36
rest in the shadow of its wing,
وَيَسْكُنُ فِي ظِـلِّ جَنَاحِهِ،
36
37
find guidance in the brightness of its morning,
وَيَهْتَدِي بِضَوْءِ صَباحِِهِ،
37
38
follow the shining of its disclosure,
وَيَقْتَدِي بِتَبَلُّج إسْفَارِهِ،
38
39
acquire light from its lamp,
وَيَسْتَصْبحُ بِمِصْباحِهِ،
39
40
and beg not guidance from any other!
وَلا يَلْتَمِسُ ألْهُدَى فِي غَيْرِهِ.
40
41
O God, just as through it Thou hast set up Muhammad as a guidepost to point to Thee
أللَّهُمَّ وَكَمَا نَصَبْتَ بِهِ مُحَمَّداً عَلَماً لِلدَّلالَةِ عَلَيْكَ،
41
42
and through his Household Thou hast made clear Thy good pleasure's roads to Thee,
وَأَنْهَجْتَ بِآلِهِ سُبُلَ الرِّضَا إلَيْكَ.
42
43
so also bless Muhammad and his Household
فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
43
44
and make the Qur'an our mediation to the noblest stations of Thy honour,
وَاجْعَلِ القُرْآنَ وَسِيلَةً لَنَا إلَى أَشْرَفِ مَنَازِلِ الْكَرَامَةِ،
44
45
a ladder by which we may climb to the place of safety,
وَسُلَّماً نَعْرُجُ فِيهِ إلَى مَحَلِّ السَّلامَةِ،
45
46
a cause for our being repaid with deliverance at the Plain of Resurrection,
وَسَبَباً نُجْزَى بِهِ النَّجاةَ فِي عَرْصَةِ الْقِيَامَةِ،
46
47
and a means whereby we may reach the bliss of the House of Permanence!
وَذَرِيعَةً نُقْدِمُ بِهَا عَلَى نَعِيْمِ دَارِ الْمُقَامَةِ.
47
48
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household,
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
48
49
lessen for us through the Qur'an the weight of heavy sins,
وَاحْطُطْ بالْقُرْآنِ عَنَّا ثِقْلَ الأوْزَارِ،
49
50
give to us the excellent qualities of the pious,
وَهَبْ لَنَا حُسْنَ شَمَائِلِ الأَبْرَارِ
50
51
and make us follow the tracks of those who stood before Thee
وَاقْفُ بِنَا آثَارَ الَّذِينَ قَامُوا لَكَ بِهِ
51
52
in the watches of the night and the ends of the day,
آنَاءَ اللَّيْلِ وَأَطْرَافَ النَّهَارِ
52
53
such that Thou purifiest us from every defilement through its purification
حَتَّى تُطَهِّرَنَا مِنْ كُلِّ دَنَس بِتَطْهِيرِهِ،
53
54
and makest us to follow the tracks of those who have taken illumination from its light
وَتَقْفُوَ بِنَا آثَارَ الَّذِينَ اسْتَضَـآءُوْا بِنُورِهِ،
54
55
and whom expectation has not distracted from works, cutting them off through its delusions' deceptions!
وَلَمْ يُلْهِهِمُ الأَمَلُ عَنِ الْعَمَـل فَيَقْطَعَهُمْ بِخُدَعِ غُرُورِهِ.
55
56
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household
أَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
56
57
and appoint the Qur'an for us an intimate in the shadows of nights
واجْعَلِ القُرْآنَ لنا فِي ظُلَمِ اللَّيالِي مُونِساً
57
58
and a guardian against the instigations of Satan and confusing thoughts,
وَمِنْ نَزَغَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ وَخَطَرَاتِ الْوَسَاوِسِ حَارِساً،
58
59
for our feet an obstruction from passing to acts of disobedience,
وَلأقْدَامِنَا عَنْ نَقْلِهَا إلَى الْمَعَاصِيْ حَابِساً،
59
60
for our tongues a silencer without blight preventing a plunge into falsehood,
وَلأِلْسِنَتِنَا عَنِ الْخَوْضِ فِي الباطِلِ مِنْ غَيْرِ مَا آفَة مُخْرِساً،
60
61
for our limbs a restrainer from committing sins,
وَلِجَوَارِحِنَا عَنِ اقْتِرَافِ الآثامِ زَاجِراً،
61
62
and for the scrutiny of heedfulness rolled up in heedlessness an unroller,
وَلِمَا طَوَتِ الغَفْلَةُ عَنَّا مِنْ تَصَفُّحِ الاعْتِبَارِ نَاشِراً
62
63
such that Thou attachest to our hearts the understanding of the Qur'an's wonders
حَتَّى تُوصِلَ إلَى قُلُوبِنَا فَهْمَ عَجَائِبِهِ
63
64
and its restraining similitudes which immovable mountains in all their solidity
وَزَوَاجِرَ أَمْثَـالِهِ الَّتِي ضَعُفَتِ الْجِبَالُ الرَّوَاسِي
64
65
were too weak to carry!
عَلَى صَلاَبَتِهَا عَنِ احْتِمَالِهِ.
65
66
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household
اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
66
67
and through the Qur'an make permanent the rightness of our outward selves,
وَأَدِمْ بِالْقُرْانِ صَلاَحَ ظاهِرِنا،
67
68
veil the ideas of confusing thoughts from the soundness of our innermost minds,
وَاحْجُبْ بِهِ خَطَراتِ الْوَسَاوِسِ عَنْ صِحَّةِ ضَمَائِرِنَا،
68
69
wash away the dirt of our hearts and the ties of our heavy sins,
وَاغْسِلْ بِهِ دَرَنَ قُلُوبِنَا وَعَلاَئِقَ أَوْزَارِنَا،
69
70
gather our scattered affairs,
وَاجْمَعْ بِهِ مُنْتَشَرَ أُمُورِنَا،
70
71
quench the thirst of our burning heat in the standing place of the presentation to Thee,
وَأَرْوِ بِهِ فِي مَـوْقِفِ الْعَرْضِ عَلَيْكَ ظَمَأ هَوَاجِرِنَا،
71
72
and clothe us in the robes of security on the Day of the Greatest Terror at our uprising!
وَاكْسُنَا بِهِ حُلَلَ الأَمَانِ يَوْمَ الْفَزَعِ الأكْبَرِ فِي نشُورِنَا.
72
73
God, bless Muhammad and his Household
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
73
74
and through the Qur'an redress our lack - our destitution in poverty
وَاجْبُرْ بِالْقُرْآنِ خَلَّتَنَا مِنْ عَدَمِ الإمْلاَقِ،
74
75
drive toward us the comforts of life and an abundance of plentiful provisions,
وَسُقْ إلَيْنَا بِهِ رَغَدَ الْعَيْشِ وَخِصْبَ سَعَةِ الأرْزَاقِ،
75
76
turn aside blameworthy character traits and base moral qualities,
وَجَنِّبْنَا بِهِ الضَّرَائِبَ الْمَذْمُومَةَ وَمَدَانِيَ الأخْلاَقِ،
76
77
and preserve us from the pit of unbelief and the motives for hypocrisy,
وَاعْصِمْنَا بِهِ مِنْ هُوَّةِ الكُفْرِ وَدَوَاعِـي النِّفَاقِ
77
78
such that the Qur'an may be for us at the resurrection a leader to Thy good pleasure and Thy gardens,
حَتَّى يَكُوْنَ لَنَا فِي الْقِيَامَةِ إلَى رِضْوَانِكَ وَجِنَانِكَ قَائِداً
78
79
for us in this world a protector against Thy displeasure and transgressing Thy bounds
وَلَنَا فِي الدُّنْيا عَنْ سَخَطِكَ وَتَعَدِّي حُدُودِكَ ذَائِداً،
79
80
and for what is with Thee a witness by its declaring lawful the lawful and its declaring unlawful the unlawful!
وَلِمَا عِنْدَكَ بِتَحْلِيلِ حَلاَلِهِ وَتَحْرِيم حَرَامِهِ شَاهِداً.
80
81
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
81
82
and through the Qur'an make easy for our souls at death the distress of the driving,
وَهَوِّنْ بِالْقُرْآنِ عِنْدَ الْمَوْتِ عَلَى أَنْفُسِنَا كَرْبَ السِّيَاقِ،
82
83
the effort of the moaning, and the succession of the rattling,
وَجَهْدَ الأنِينِ، وَتَرادُفَ الْحَشَارِجِ
83
84
'when souls reach the throats' (ref.75:26) "and it is said, 'Where is the enchanter"? (75:27)';
إذَا بَلَغَتِ ألنُّفُوسُ التَّراقِيَ وَقِيلَ مَنْ رَاق
84
85
when the angel of death discloses himself to seize them from behind the veils of unseen things,
وَتَجَلَّى مَلَكُ الْمَوْتِ لِقَبْضِهَا مِنْ حُجُبِ الْغُيُوبِ،
85
86
letting loose at them from the bow of destinies the arrows of the terror of lonesome separation,
وَرَمَاهَا عَنْ قَوْسِ الْمَنَايَا بِأَسْهُمِ وَحْشَةِ الْفِرَاقِ،
86
87
and mixing for them from sudden death a cup poisoned to the taste;
وَدَافَ لَهَا مِنْ ذَعَافِ الْمَوْتِ كَأْساً مَسْمُومَةَ الْمَذَاقِ،
87
88
and when departure and release for the hereafter come close to us,
وَدَنا مِنَّا إلَى الآخِرَةِ رَحِيلٌ وَانْطِلاَقٌ،
88
89
works become collars around the necks,
وَصَارَتِ الأعْمَالُ قَلاَئِـدَ فِي الأَعْنَاقِ،
89
90
and the graves become the haven until the appointed time of the Day of Encounter!
وَكَانَتِ الْقُبُورُ هِيَ الْمَأوَى إلَى مِيقَاتِ يَوْمِ التَّلاَقِ.
90
91
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household,
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
91
92
make blessed for us the arrival at the house of decay
وَبَارِكْ لَنَا فِي حُلُولِ دَارِ البِلَى
92
93
and the drawn out residence between the layers of the earth,
وَطُولِ الْمُقَامَـةِ بَيْنَ أَطْبَـاقِ الثَّـرى،
93
94
appoint the graves, after separation from this world, the best of our waystations,
وَاجْعَلِ القبُورَ بَعْدَ فِرَاقِ الدُّنْيَا خَيْرَ مَنَازِلِنَا،
94
95
make roomy for us through Thy mercy the narrowness of our tombs,
وَافْسَحْ لَنَا بِرَحْمَتِكَ فِي ضِيقِ مَلاَحِدِنَا،
95
96
and disgrace us not among those present at the Resurrection through our ruinous sins!
وَلا تَفْضَحْنَا فِي حَاضِرِي الْقِيَامَةِ بِمُوبِقَاتِ آثامِنَا،
96
97
Through the Qur'an have mercy upon the lowliness of our station at the standing place of presentation to Thee,
وَارْحَمْ بِالْقُرْانِ فِيْ مَوْقِفِ الْعَرْضِ عَلَيْكَ ذُلَّ مَقَامِنَا،
97
98
make firm the slips of our feet during the shaking of the bridge across hell
وَثَبِّتْ بِهِ عِنْدَ اضْطِرَابِ جِسْرِ جَهَنَّمَ
98
99
on the day of passage over it,
يَوْمَ الْمَجَازِ عَلَيْهَـا زَلَلَ أَقْدَامِنَا،
99
100
illuminate the darkness of our graves before the Uprising,
وَنَوِّرْ بِهِ قَبْلَ الْبَعْثِ سُدَفَ قُبُورنا،
100
101
and deliver us from every distress on the Day of Resurrection
وَنَجِّنَا بِهِ مِنْ كُلِّ كَرْب يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ
101
102
and from the hardships of terrors on the Day of Disaster!
وَشَدَائِدِ أَهْوَالِ يَوْمِ الطَّامَّةِ
102
103
Whiten our faces on the day when the faces of wrongdoers are blackened
وَبَيِّضْ وُجُوهَنَا يَوْمَ تَسْوَدُّ وُجُوهُ الظَّلَمَةِ
103
104
during the Day of Regret and Remorse,
فِي يَوْمِ الْحَسْرَةِ وَالنَّدَامَةِ،
104
105
appoint love for us in the breasts of the faithful,
وَاجْعَلْ لَنَا فِي صُدُورِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وُدّاً،
105
106
and make not life for us troublesome!
وَلاَ تَجْعَلِ الْحَيَاةَ عَلَيْنَا نَكَداً.
106
107
O God, bless Muhammad, Thy servant and Thy messenger,
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد عَبْدِكَ وَرَسُولِكَ
107
108
just as He delivered Thy message, executed Thy command, and counselled Thy servants!
كَمَا بَلَّغَ رِسَالَتَكَ، وَصَدَعَ بِأَمْرِكَ، وَنَصَحَ لِعِبَادِكَ.
108

English text only- In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

O God, Thou hast helped me complete Thy Book, which Thou sent down as a light and appointed as a guardian over every book Thou hast sent down, preferring it over every narrative which Thou hast recounted, a separator, through which Thou hast separated Thy lawful from Thy unlawful, a Qur'an, through which Thou hast made plain the approaches to Thy ordinances, a book, which Thou hast distinguished very distinctly for Thy servants, a revelation, which Thou hast sent down, a sending down, upon Thy Prophet Muhammad (Thy blessings be upon him and his Household).

Thou appointed it a light through following which we may be guided from the shadows of error and ignorance, a healing for him who turns ear toward hearing it with the understanding of attestation, a just balance whose tongue does not incline away from truth, a light of guidance whose proof is not extinguished before the witnesses, and a guidepost of deliverance, so that he who repairs straightway to its prescription will not go astray and he who clings to its preservation's handhold will not be touched by the hands of disasters.

O God, since Thou hast given us help to recite it and made smooth the roughness of our tongues through the beauty of its expression, place us among those who observe it as it should be observed, serve Thee by adhering in submission to the firm text of its verses, and seek refuge in admitting both its ambiguous parts and the elucidations of its clear signs!

O God,Thou sent it down upon Thy Prophet Muhammad (God bless him and his household) in summary form,Thou inspired him with the science of its wonders to complement it, Thou made us the heirs of its knowledge as interpreters, Thou made us to surpass him who is ignorant of its knowledge, and Thou gave us strength over it to raise us above those not able to carry it.

O God, just as Thou hast appointed our hearts as its carriers and made known to us through Thy mercy its nobility and excellence, so also bless Muhammad, its preacher, and his Household, its guardians, and place us among those who confess that it has come from Thee, lest doubt about attesting to it assail us, or deviation from its straightforward path shake us!

O God, bless Muhammad and his Household and make us one of those who hold fast to its cord, seek haven from its ambiguities in its fortified stronghold, rest in the shadow of its wing, find guidance in the brightness of its morning, follow the shining of its disclosure, acquire light from its lamp, and beg not guidance from any other!

O God, just as through it Thou hast set up Muhammad as a guidepost to point to Thee and through his Household Thou hast made clear Thy good pleasure's roads to Thee, so also bless Muhammad and his Household and make the Qur'an our mediation to the noblest stations of Thy honour, a ladder by which we may climb to the place of safety, a cause for our being repaid with deliverance at the Plain of Resurrection, and a means whereby we may reach the bliss of the House of Permanence!

O God, bless Muhammad and his Household, lessen for us through the Qur'an the weight of heavy sins, give to us the excellent qualities of the pious, and make us follow the tracks of those who stood before Thee in the watches of the night and the ends of the day, such that Thou purifiest us from every defilement through its purification and makest us to follow the tracks of those who have taken illumination from its light and whom expectation has not distracted from works, cutting them off through its delusions' deceptions!

O God, bless Muhammad and his Household and appoint the Qur'an for us an intimate in the shadows of nights and a guardian against the instigations of Satan and confusing thoughts, for our feet an obstruction from passing to acts of disobedience, for our tongues a silencer without blight preventing a plunge into falsehood, for our limbs a restrainer from committing sins, and for the scrutiny of heedfulness rolled up in heedlessness an unroller, such that Thou attachest to our hearts the understanding of the Qur'an's wonders and its restraining similitudes which immovable mountains in all their solidity were too weak to carry!

O God, bless Muhammad and his Household and through the Qur'an make permanent the rightness of our outward selves, veil the ideas of confusing thoughts from the soundness of our innermost minds, wash away the dirt of our hearts and the ties of our heavy sins, gather our scattered affairs, quench the thirst of our burning heat in the standing place of the presentation to Thee, and clothe us in the robes of security on the Day of the Greatest Terror at our uprising!

 O God, bless Muhammad and his Household and through the Qur'an redress our lack - our destitution in poverty - drive toward us the comforts of life and an abundance of plentiful provisions, turn aside blameworthy character traits and base moral qualities, and preserve us from the pit of unbelief and the motives for hypocrisy, such that the Qur'an may be for us at the resurrection a leader to Thy good pleasure and Thy gardens, for us in this world a protector against Thy displeasure and transgressing Thy bounds and for what is with Thee a witness by its declaring lawful the lawful and its declaring unlawful the unlawful!

O God, bless Muhammad and his Household and through the Qur'an make easy for our souls at death the distress of the driving, the effort of the moaning, and the succession of the rattling, when souls reach the throats and it is said, 'Where is the enchanter?'; when the angel of death discloses himself to seize them from behind the veils of unseen things, letting loose at them from the bow of destinies the arrows of the terror of lonesome separation, and mixing for them from sudden death a cup poisoned to the taste; and when departure and release for the hereafter come close to us, works become collars around the necks, and the graves become the haven until the appointed time of the Day of Encounter!

O God, bless Muhammad and his Household, make blessed for us the arrival at the house of decay and the drawn out residence between the layers of the earth, appoint the graves, after separation from this world, the best of our waystations, make roomy for us through Thy mercy the narrowness of our tombs, and disgrace us not among those present at the Resurrection through our ruinous sins! Through the Qur'an have mercy upon the lowliness of our station at the standing place of presentation to Thee, make firm the slips of our feet during the shaking of the bridge across hell on the day of passage over it, illuminate the darkness of our graves before the Uprising, and deliver us from every distress on the Day of Resurrection and from the hardships of terrors on the Day of Disaster! Whiten our faces on the day when the faces of wrongdoers are blackened during the Day of Regret and Remorse, appoint love for us in the breasts of the faithful, and make not life for us troublesome! O God, bless Muhammad, Thy servant and Thy messenger, just as He delivered Thy message, executed Thy command and counselled Thy servants!

O God, on the Day of Resurrection make our Prophet (Thy blessings be upon him and his Household) the nearest of the prophets to Thee in seat, the ablest of them before Thee with intercession, the greatest of them with Thee in measure, and the most eminent of them with Thee in rank! O God, bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad, ennoble his edifice, magnify his proof, make weighty his balance, accept his intercession, bring near his mediation, whiten his face, complete his light, and raise his degree! Make us live according to his Sunna, make us die in his creed, take us on his road, make us travel his path, place us among the people who obey him, muster us in his band, lead us to up his pool, and give us to drink of his cup! And bless Muhammad and his Household, with a blessing through which Thou wilt take him to the most excellent of Thy good, Thy bounty, and Thy generosity for which he hopes! Thou art Possessor of boundless mercy and generous bounty.

O God, repay him for Thy messages which he delivered, Thy signs which he passed on, the good counsel he gave to Thy servants, and the struggle he undertook in Thy way, with the best Thou hast repaid any of Thy angels brought nigh and Thy prophets sent out and chosen! And upon him and his Household, the good, the pure, be peace, God's mercy, and His blessings!

O Allah bestow upon me Your mercy so that I am away from Your disobedience always, and bestow the grace that I am not involved in unbearable difficulties, and grant me the goodness for deeds which make You happy with me, and make the memorizing of Your book (the Holy Quran) obligatory on me as You have granted me it’s knowledge, and bestow Your grace so that I recite it in the way Your pleasure is gained. O Allah illuminate my eyes, expand my breast, illuminate my heart and my tongue flows with the Holy Quran. Give me the strength so that I use my body for the Holy Quran, grant me Your help because there is no helper other than You and there is no god other than You
