Dua Nabi Idris

It is recommended to recite the Du`a' Idris (the Supplication of Idris), which has been mentioned by Shaykh al-Tusiy and Sayyid Ibn Tawus in the books of Misbah al-Mutahajjid or Iqbal al-A`mal. This supplication is as follows


سُبْحانَكَ لا إلَهَ إلاّ أنتَ

Glory be to You. There is no god save You.

يا رَبَّ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَوارِثَهُ

O the Lord and the Inheritor of all things.

يا إلَهَ الآلِهَةِ الرَّفيعُ جَلالُهُ،

O the God of gods; whose majesty is elevated.

يا اَللهُ المَحْمودُ في كُلِّ فِعالِهِ،

O Allah, the Praised for all of His acts.

يا رَحْمنَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَراحِمَهُ،

O the All-beneficent and the All-merciful of all things.

يا حَيُّ حينَ لا حَيُّ في دَيْمومَةِ مُلكِهِ وَبَقائِهِ،

O the Ever-living, when there was nothing existent, in the perpetuity of His kingdom and eternity.

يا قَيُّومُ فَلا يَفوتُ شَيْءٌ مِنْ عِلْمِهِ  وَلا يَؤودُهُ،

O the Self-Subsisting; nothing can be missed by Your knowledge and nothing can ever tire Him.

يا واحِدُ البَاقِي أوَّلَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَآخِرَهُ.

O the One, the Everlasting, the First and the Last of all things.

يا دائِمُ بِغَيْرِ فَناءٍ وَلا زَوالَ لِمُلْكِهِ،

O the Perpetual without extinction, and His kingdom is never exposed to extermination.

يا صَمَدُ في غَيْرِ شَبيهٍ وَلا شَيْءَ كَمِثْلِهِ،

O the Besought of all; without being any match to Him and there is nothing like Him.

يا بارُّ فَلا شَيْءَ كُفْوُهُ وَلا مُدانِيَ لِوَصْفِهِ،

O the Upright; nothing can be His equal and nothing can even approach Him in attributes.

يا كَبيرُ أنْتَ الَّذي لا تَهْتَدي القُلوبُ لِعَظَمَتِهِ،

O the All-big; it is You Whose greatness cannot be hit by hearts.

يا بارِئُ  الْمُنْشَيْءَ بِلا مِثالٍ خَلا مِنْ غَيْرِهِ،

O the Originator, the Maker, without having any equivalent.

يا زاكي الطّاهِرُ مِنْ كُلِّ آفَةٍ بِقُدْسِهِ،

O the Pure, the Safe from any defect due to His Holiness.

يا كافي الْمُوسِعُ لِما خَلَقَ مِنْ عَطايا فَضْلِهِ.

O the Self-Sufficient, the Bestower upon His creatures with the gifts of His favors.

يا نَقِيُّ مِنْ كُلِّ جَوْرٍ لَمْ يَرْضَهُ وَلَمْ يُخالِطْهُ فِعالَهُ،

O the Pufiried against any injustice that He does not accept and that is not found in His deeds.

يا حَنّانُ أنْتَ الَّذي  وَسِعَتْ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ رَحْمَتُهُ،

O the All-tender; it is You Whose mercy covers all things.

يا مَنّانُ ذا الإحْسانِ قَدْ عَمَّ الخَلائِقَ مِنْهُ،

O the All-favorer, the Lord of benevolence that He spreads over all the created beings.

يا دَيّانَ العِبادِ فَكُلٌّ يَقومُ خاضِعاً لِرَهْبَتِهِ.

O the Master of the servants; everything stands in submission to the fear of Him.

يا خالِقَ مَنْ في السَّمواتِ وَالأرَضينَ فَكُلٌّ إلَيْهِ مَعادُهُ،

O the Creator of all those in the heavens and the layers of the earth; everything shall be returned to Him.

يا رَحْمانُ وَراحِمَ كُلِّ صَريخٍ وَمَكْروبٍ وَغِياثَهُ وَمَعاذَهُ،

O the All-beneficent and the All-merciful to and the Aide and the Shelter of all seekers of aid and all aggrieved ones.

يا بارُّ فَلا تَصِفُ الألْسُنُ كُنْهَ جَلالِ مُلْكِهِ وَعِزِّهِ،

O the Upright; no language can ever describe the reality of the majesty of His kingdom and might.

وَيا مُبْدِئَ البَرايا لَمْ يَبْغِ في إنْشائِها أعْواناً مِنْ خَلقِهِ،

O the Originator of all the creation; in Your creation, You did not need assistants from among Your creatures.

يا عَلاَّمَ الغُيوبِ فلا يَؤوُدُهُ مِنْ شَيْءٍ حِفْظُهُ.

O the Knower of all the unseen; the preservation of all things does not tire You.

يا مُعيداً ما أفْناهُ إذا بَرَزَ الخَلائِقُ لِدَعْوَتِهِ مِنْ مَخافَتِهِ،

O He Who shall restore to life all that which He terminates when the creatures will be resurrected on account of His call out of fear of Him.

يا حَليمُ ذا الأناةِ فَلا شَيْءَ يَعْدِلُهُ مِنْ خَلْقِهِ،

O the Forbearing, the Lord of leniency; nothing of Your creatures can ever match You.

يا مَحْمودَ الفِعالِ ذا الْمَنِّ عَلى جَميعِ خَلْقِهِ بِلُطْفِهِ،

O He Whose deeds are praiseworthy, the Lord of favoring on all Your creatures out of Your kindness.

يا عَزيزُ الْمَنِيعُ الْغالِبُ عَلى أمْرِهِ فَلا شَيْءَ يَعْدِلُهُ،

O the Almighty, the Invulnerable, the Dominant over all affairs; nothing can ever be equivalent to You.

يا قاهِرُ ذا الْبَطْشِ الشَّديدِ أنْتَ الَّذي لا يُطاقُ انْتِقامُهُ.

O the Overcomer, the owner of strong grip; it is You Whose punishment is intolerable.

يا مُتَعالي القَريبُ في عُلُوِّ ارْتِفاعِ دُنُوِّهِ،

O the All-exalted, the Nigh in the elevation of Your nearness;

يا جَبّارُ الْمُذَلِّلَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ بِقَهْرِ عَزيزِ سُلْطانِهِ،

O the All-powerful, the humiliating all things by the prevalence of His almighty authority;

يا نورَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ أنْتَ الَّذي فَلَقَ الظُّلُماتِ نورُهُ،

O the Light of all things; it is You Whose light split the darkness.

يا قُدّوسُ الطّاهِرُ مِنْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَلا شَيْءَ يَعْدِلُهُ،

O the Holy, the Wholesome against all things and nothing can ever be His counterpart.

يا قَريبُ الْمُجيبُ الْمُتَداني دونَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قُرْبَهُ،

O the Nigh; the Responding; and the Approaching very close that He has becomes the nearest of all things.

يا عالي الشّامِخُ في السَّماءِ فَوقَ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ عُلُوُّ ارْتِفاعِهِ،

O the Elevated; the Exalted in the heavens; whose highness has overtopped all things.

يا بَديعَ البَدائِعِ وَمُعيدَها بَعْدَ فَنائِها بِقُدْرَتِهِ.

O the Wonderful Maker of all wonderful things; and the Restorer of them by His power after they vanish;

يا جَليلُ الْمُتَكَبِّرُ عَلى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ،

O the Lofty; the All-great over all things.

فَالْعَدْلُ أمْرُهُ وَالصِّدْقُ وَعْدُهُ،

Just are Your affairs, and truthful are Your promises.

يا مَجيدُ فَلا يَبْلُغُ الأوْهامُ كُلَّ ثَنائِهِ وَمَجْدِهِ،

O the Glorious; even delusions cannot attain all Your praise and glory.

يا كَريمَ الْعَفْوِ وَالْعَدْلِ،

O the Noble in pardon and justice;

أنْتَ الَّذي مَلأَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ عَدْلُهُ،

It is You Whose justice has filled in everywhere.

يا عَظِيمُ ذا الثَّناءِ الفاخِرِ وَالْعِزِّ وَالْكِبْرِياءِ فَلا يُذَلُّ عِزُّهُ،

O the Great; the Lord of excellent praise, might, and magnitude; hence, Your might is never humbled.

يا عَجِيبُ لا تَنْطِقُ الألْسُنُ بِكُلِّ آلائِهِ وَثَنائِهِ.

O the All-excellent; languages cannot express all Your bounties and praise.

أسْألُكَ يا مُعْتَمَدي عِنْدَ كُلِّ كُرْبَةٍ،

I beseech You; O my Reliance at all griefs;

وَغِياثي عِنْدَ كُلِّ شِدَّةٍ،

And my Aide at all hardships,

بِهذِهِ الأسْماءِ أماناً مِنْ عُقوباتِ الدُّنْيا وَالآخِرَةِ،

(I beseech You) by these names to grant me security against the punishments in this worldly life as well as the Next Life.

وَأسْألُكَ أنْ تَصْرِفَ عَنّي بِهِنَّ كُلَّ سوءٍ وَمَخوفٍ وَمَحْذورٍ،

And I beseech You to rebuff from me by these Names all things that are evil, feared, and jeopardized,

وَتَصْرِفَ عَنّي أبْصارَ الظَّلَمَةِ الْمُريدينَ بِيَ السّوءَ الَّذي نَهَيْتَ عَنْهُ

And to rebuff from me the sights of the wrongdoers who intend evil to me—evil against which You have warned;

وَأنْ تَصْرِفَ قُلوبَهُمْ مِنْ شَرِّ ما يُضْمِرونَ إلى خَيْرِ ما لا يَمْلِكونَ،

And to rebuff from me their hearts and change the evil that they conceal in themselves into the good that they do not have,

وَلا يَمْلِكُهُ غَيْرُكَ يا كَريمُ.

And none else has it save You, O the All-generous.

اللّهُمَّ لا تَكِلْني إلى نَفْسي فَأعْجَزُ عَنْها،

O Allah: (please) do not refer me to myself, because I will fail to manage it,

وَلا إلى النّاسِ فَيَرْفُضوني،

Or to the people, because they will reject me.

وَلا تُخَيِّبْني وَأنا أرْجوكَ

And do not disappoint me while I am pleasing You,

وَلا تُعَذِّبْني وَأنا أدْعُوكَ،

And do not torture me while I am praying You.

اللّهُمَّ إنّي أدْعُوكَ كَما أمَرْتَني،

O Allah: I am praying You as You ordered me to do,

فَأجِبْنِي كَما وَعَدْتَني،

So, (please) answer me as You promised me to do.

اللّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ خَيْرَ عُمْري ما وَلِيَ أجَلي.

O Allah: (please) make the best of my lifetime be that which is near to my death.

اللّهُمَّ لا تُغَيِّرْ جَسِدي،

O Allah: (please) do not change my body,

وَلا تُرْسِلْ حَظّي،

And do not stop adding to my shares (from Your favors)

وَلا تَسُؤ صَديقي،

And do not cause harm to my friend.

أعوذُ بِكَ مِنْ سَقَمٍ مُصْرِعٍ،

I seek Your protection against deadly diseases,

وَفَقْرٍ مُقْرِعٍ،

And against harsh poverty,

وَمِنَ الذُّلِّ وَبِئْسَ الْخِلِّ،

And against humiliation and bad company.

اللّهُمَّ سَلِّ قَلْبي عَنْ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ لا أتَزَوَّدُهُ إلَيْكَ،

O Allah: (please) entertain my heart against all things that cannot act as my provision to You,

وَلا أنْتَفِعُ بِهِ يَوْمَ ألْقاكَ،

And that cannot avail me on the day when I will meet You,

مِنْ حَلالٍ أوْ حَرامٍ،

Be it legal or illegal,

ثُمَّ أعْطِني قُوَّةً عَلَيْهِ وَعِزّاً وَقَناعَةً وَمَقْتاً لَهُ وَرِضاكَ فِيهِ،

And then (please) grant me power over it as well as mighty, contentment, revulsion of it, and Your satisfaction with it.

يا أرْحَمَ الرّاحِمينَ.

O the most Merciful of all those who show mercy;

اللّهُمَّ لكَ الْحَمْدُ عَلى عَطاياكَ الْجَزيلَةِ،

O Allah: all praise be to You for Your abundant gifts.

وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ عَلى مِنَنِكَ الْمُتَواتِرَةِ

And all praise be to you for Your uninterrupted favors,

الَّتي بِها دافَعْتَ عَنّي مَكارِهَ الأُمورِ،

By which You have saved me from adverse matters,

وَبِها آتَيْتَني مَواهِبَ السُّرورِ،

And through which You have bestowed upon me with the donations of pleasure,

مَعَ تَماديِّ في الغَفْلَةِ،

Although I persisted in carelessness,

وَما بَقِيَ فِيَّ مِنَ الْقَسْوَةِ،

And I kept some hardheartedness;

فَلَمْ يَمْنَعْكَ ذلِكَ مِنْ فِعْلي أنْ عَفَوْتَ عَنّي،

Nevertheless, all such deeds of mine did not stop You from pardoning me,

وَسَتَرْتَ ذلِكَ عَلَيَّ

And covering that,

وَسَوَّغْتَني ما في يَدي مِنْ نِعَمِكَ،

And allowing me to dispose with Your bounties that are at my hand,

وَتابَعْتَ عَلَيَّ مِنْ إحْسانِكَ،

And continuing in doing good to me,

وَصَفَحْتَ لي عَنْ قَبيحِ ما أفْضَيْتَ بِهِ إلَيْكَ،

And overlooking the ill deeds of which I confessed to You,

وَانْتَهَكْتَهُ مِنْ مَعاصيكَ.

And my violations of doing acts of disobedience to You.

اللّهُمَّ إنّي أسْألُكَ بِكُلِّ اسْمٍ هُوَ لَكَ

O Allah: I beseech You by every Name that is Yours,

يَحِقُّ عَلَيْكَ فيهِ إجابَةَ الدُّعاءِ إذا دُعيتَ بِهِ،

And due to which it becomes incumbent upon You to respond to those who pray You by it,

وَأسْألُكَ بِكُلِّ ذي حَقٍّ عَلَيْكَ،

And I beseech You in the name of all those who enjoy a right with You

وَبِحَقِّكَ عَلى جَمِيعِ مَنْ هُوَ دُونَكَ،

And in the name of Your duties that are incumbent upon all those who are less than You are,

أنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ عَبْدِكَ وَرَسُولِكَ وَعَلى آلِهِ،

(I beseech You) to send blessings upon Muhammad, Your servant and Your Messenger, and upon his Household;

وَمَنْ أرادَني بِسوءٍ فَخُذْ بِسَمْعِهِ وَبَصَرِهِ

And as for anyone who intends evil to me, (please) have control on his hearing and sight

وَمِنْ بَيْنَ يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِِهِ

And before him and behind him

وَعَنْ يَمينِهِ وَعَنْ شِمالِهِ

And from his right side and from his left side,

وَامْنَعْهُ مِنّي بِحَوْلِكَ وَقُوَّتِكَ.

And (please) prevent him from harming me through Your might and Your power.

يا مَنْ لَيْسَ مَعَهُ رَبٌّ يُدْعى،

O He with Whom there is no other lord to be prayed;

وَيا مَنْ لَيْسَ فَوْقَهُ خالِقٌ يُخْشى،

O He above Whom there is no other creator to be feared;

وَيا مَنْ لَيْسَ دونَهُ إلَهٌ يُتَّقى

O He other than Whom there is no god to be feared;

وَيا مَنْ لَيْسَ لَهُ وَزيرٌ يُؤْتى،

O He Who has no assistant that may be seen first;

وَيا مَنْ لَيْسَ لَهُ حاجِبٌ يُرْشى،

O He Who has no janitor that may be bribed;

وَيا مَنْ لَيْسَ لَهُ بَوّابٌ يُنادى،

O He Who has no doorkeeper that may be called;

وَيا مَنْ لا يَزْدادُ عَلى كَثْرَةِ العَطاءِ إلاَّ كَرَماً وَجُوداً،

O He Whose abundant gifting increases him nothing but more generosity and more magnanimity;

وَعَلى تَتابُعِ الذُّنوبِ إلاَّ مَغْفِرَةً وَعَفْواً،

And the flow of sinning (of His servants) increases him nothing but forgiveness and pardon.

صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

(please) send blessings upon Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,

وَافْعَلْ بي ما أنْتَ أهْلُهُ،

And do to me that which befits You,

وَلا تَفْعَلْ بي ما أنا أهْلُهُ،

And do not do to me that which I deserve,

فَإنَّك أهْلُ التَّقْوى وَأهْلُ الْمَغْفِرَةِ.

For You are the worthiest of being feared and the worthiest of forgiving.
