Ziyarat Nahiya

Ziyarat Nahiya

Of the several prescribed Ziyarat of Imam al-Husain (as), one was recited by Imam al-Mahdi(ATFS) and reached us through one of his four special deputies. For that reason, it is known as the Ziyarat that was issued from the sacred side (Ziyarat al-Nahiya al-Muqaddasa). One of the most important features of this Ziyarat is that in different phrases, Imam al-Mahdi (ATFS) graphically describes the events of Ashura and the agony that Imam al-Husain (as) and his family faced on that horrific and ominous day.

Salutations from the one, who, had he been present with you in that plain, would have shielded you from the sharpness of the swords with his body and sacrificed his last breath for you,
وَ جاهَدَ بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ، وَ نَصَرَكَ عَلى مَنْ بَغى عَلَيْكَ، وَ فَداكَ بِرُوحِهِ وَ جَسَدِهِ وَ مالِهِ وَ وَلَدِهِ،

wa lam 'akun liman ħārabaka muħāribā, wa liman našaba lakal adāwata munāšibā,
and as I could not fight those who fought you, and was not able to show hostility to those who showed hostility to you,
فَلَأَنْدُبَنَّكَ صَباحاً وَ مَساءً وَ لَأَبْكِيَنَّ لَكَ بَدَلَ الدُّمُوعِ دَماً، حَسْرَةً عَلَيْكَ وَ تَأسُّفاً عَلى ما دَهاكَ وَ تَلَهُّفاً،

By Your mercy, O the most merciful of the merciful!
اَللّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ،
allāhumma šalli alā muħammadin wa āli muħammad,
My Allah! Bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad,
وَ أوْحِشْني مِنَ الدُّنْيا
wa 'awħishnī minad-dunyā wa ānisnī bil ākhirah,
and estrange me from (the attractions of) the world, and make me familiar with (the affairs of) the hereafter.
وَ آنِسْني بِالآخِرَةِ،

فَإنَّهُ لا يُوحِشُ مِنَ الدُّنْيا إلاّ خَوْفُكَ،
fa 'innahu lā yūħishu minad-dunyā 'illā khawfuk,
Certainly, nothing causes alienation from this world except fear of You,

O Allah! For You is the argument, not against You,
وَ إلَيْكَ الْمُشْتَكى لا مِنْكَ،

فَصَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ

And conclude me with a safe and healthy end.
اَللّهُمَّ إنَّ اسْتِغْفاري إيّاكَ وَ أنَا مُصِرٌّ عَلى مانَهَيْتَ قِلَّةُ حَيآء،
allāhumma 'innastighfārī 'iyyāka wa 'ana muširrun alā mā nahayta qillatu ħayā',
O Allah! It is due to my shamelessness that I ask forgiveness while I insist on what You have forbidden.
وَ تَرْكِيَ الاِسْتِغْفارَ مَعَ عِلْمي بِسِعَةِ حِلْمِكَ تَضْييعٌ لِحَقِّ الرَّجآءِ،
wa tarkiyal 'istighfāra maa ilmī bisiati ħilmika tađhyī'un liħaqqir-rajā'
On the other hand, if I do not ask for forgiveness with my knowledge of Your abundant forbearance, it will be wasting the right of hope (to You).
اَللّهُمَّ إنَّ ذُنُوبي تُؤْيِسُني أنْ أرْجُوَكَ،
allāhumma 'inna dhunūbi tu'yisunī 'an 'arjūk,
My Allah! (due to my weak faith) my sins discourage me from requesting You,
وَ إنَّ عِلْمي بِسِعَةِ رَحْمَتِكَ يَمْنَعُني أنْ أخْشاكَ،
wa inna ilmi bisiati rahmatika yamnaunī 'an 'akhshāk,
and my knowledge about Your vast mercy prevents me from fearing You.

fašalli alā muħammadin wa āli muħammad,
Thus, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad,
وَ صَدِّقْ رَجائي لَكَ،
wa šaddiq rajā'ī lak,

wa kun lī inda 'aħsani đanni bika yā 'akramal 'akramīn
and be for me according to the best of what I expect and believe about You, O the most generous of the generous!
اَللّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ أيِّدْني بِالْعِصْمَةِ،

and do not worry about the sustenance of tomorrow.
اَللّهُمَّ إنَّ الْغَنِيَّ مَنِ اسْتَغْنى بِكَ وَ افْتَقَرَ إلَيْكَ،
allāhumma 'innal ghaniyya manistaghnā bika waftaqara 'ilayk,
O Allah! Certainly, rich is he who suffices himself with You and considers himself in need of You,
وَ الْفَقيرَ مَنِ اسْتَغْنى بِخَلْقِكَ عَنْكَ،
wal faqīra manistaghnā bikhalqika anka,
and poor is he who feels that he can suffice himself through Your creation without You.
فَصَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ،
fašalli alā muħammadin wa āli muħammad,
Thus, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad,
وَ أغْنِني عَنْ خَلْقِكَ بِكَ،
wa 'aghninī an khalqika bik,
and suffice me from Your creation by Yourself,
وَ اجْعَلْني مِمَّنْ لا يَبْسُطُ كَفّاً إلاّ إلَيْكَ،
wajalnī mimman lā yabsuţu kaffan 'illā 'ilayk,
and put me amongst those who do not extend their hand except towards You.
اَللّهُمَّ إنَّ الشَّقِيَّ مَنْ قَنَطَ وَ أمامَهُ التَّوْبَةُ وَ وَرآءَهُ الرَّحْمَةُ،
allāhumma 'innash-shaqiyya man qanaţa wa 'amāmahut-tawbatu wa warā'ahur-rahmah,
My Allah! Certainly, wretched is he who despairs while repentance is placed before him and mercy is after him,
وَ إنْ كُنْتُ ضَعيفَ الْعَمَلِ فَإ نّي في رَحْمَتِكَ قَوِيُّ الأمَلِ،
wa 'in kuntu đhaīfal amali fa 'innī fī raħmatika qawiyyal 'amal,
Even though I have been weak in action, I have strong hope in Your mercy,
فَهَبْ لي ضَعْفَ عَمَلي لِقُوَّةِ أمَلي،
fahab lī đhafa amalī liquwwati 'amalī,
Thus, forgive the weakness of my action in light of the strength of my hope.
اَللّهُمَّ إنْ كُنْتَ تَعْلَمُ أنْ ما في عِبادِكَ مَنْ هُوَ أقْسى قَلْباً مِنّي وَ أعْظَمُ مِنّي ذَنْباً،
allāhumma 'in kunta talamu 'an mā fī 'ibādika man huwa 'aqsā qalban minnī wa 'ađamu minnī dhanbā,
O Allah! Even if You know there is no one amongst Your servants with harder heart and greater sins than mine,
فَإ نّي أعْلَمُ أنَّهُ لا مَوْلى أعْظَمُ مِنْكَ طَوْلا،
fa 'innī 'alamu 'annahu lā mawlā 'ađamu minka ţawlā,
I certainly know that there is no master more generous than You,
وَ أوْسَعُ رَحْمَةً وَ عَفْواً،
wa 'awsau raħmatan wa afwā,
with greater mercy and forgiveness.
فَيا مَنْ هُوَ أوْحَدُ في رَحْمَتِهِ،
fayā man huwa 'awħadu fī raħmatih,
Then, O He Who is unique in His mercy!
إغْفِرْ لِمَنْ لَيْسَ بِأوْحَدَ في خَطيئَتِهِ،
'ighfir liman laysa bi 'awħada fī khaţī'atih,
Forgive him, who is not unique in his mistakes.
اَللّهُمَّ إنَّكَ أمَرْتَنا فَعَصَيْنا،
allāhumma 'innaka 'amartanā faašaynā,
O Allah! Certainly, You commanded us, but we have disobeyed,
وَ نَهَيْتَ فَمَا انْتَهَيْنا،
wa nahayta famantahaynā,
forbade us, but we did not desist,
وَ ذَكَّرْتَ فَتَناسَيْنا،
wa dhakkarta fatanāsaynā,
reminded us, but we remained unmindful,
وَ بَصَّرْتَ فَتَعامَيْنا،
wa baššarta fataāmaynā,
enlightened us, but we behaved blindly,
وَ حَذَّرْتَ فَتَعَدَّيْنا،
wa ħadh-dharta fataaddaynā,
and warned us, but we transgressed.
وَ ما كانَ ذلِكَ جَزآءَ إحْسانِكَ إلَيْنا،
wa mā kāna dhālika jazā'a 'ihsānika 'ilaynā,
This was not the repayment of Your kindness to us,
وَ أنْتَ أعْلَمُ بِما أعْلَنّا وَ أخْفَيْنا،
wa 'anta 'alamu bimā 'alannā wa 'akhfaynā,
and You know what we have disclosed and have concealed,
وَ أخْبَرُ بِما نَأْتي وَ ما أتَيْنا،
wa 'akhbaru bimā na'tī wa mā 'ataynā,
and You are aware of what we will do and have done.

wa ātinā fid-dunyā ħasanatan wa fil ākhirati ħasanatan wa qinā adhāban-nār.
Give us good in this world and good in the hereafter, and shield us from the torment of the fire.[1]
Then, complete your prayer, and recite Tasbihat (of Lady Fatima(PBUH)), and then place the side of you face on the ground and say the following forty times:
سُبْحانَ اللهِ وَ الْحَمْدُ للهِِ وَ لا إلهَ إلاَّ اللهُ وَ اللهُ أكْبَرُ
subħānal-lāhi wal ħamdulil-lāhi wa lā 'ilāha 'illal-lāhu wal-lāhu akbar,
Glory be to Allah! Praise be to Allah! There is no deity but Allah! Allah is greater (than being described).
Following that, ask Allah for protection, salvation, forgiveness, success in performing good deeds, and the acceptance of the actions that you do to seek His nearness and perform for His sake.
زادَ اللهُ في شَرَفِكُمْ، وَ السَّلامُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَ بَرَكاتُهُ.
zādal-lāhu fī sharafikum, was-salāmu alaykum wa raħmatul-lāhi wa barakātuh.
May Allah increase your honor. Peace be upon you, the mercy of Allah, and His blessings.
