Ziyarat Syeda Fatima (sa)

يَا مُمْتَحَنَةُ
ya mumtahanatu
O carefully examined (lady):
ٱمْتَحَنَكِ ٱللَّهُ ٱلَّذِي خَلَقَكِ
imtahanaki allahu alladhi khalaqaki
Allah Who created you had tried you
قَبْلَ انْ يَخْلُقَكِ
qabla an yakhluqaki
before He created you (for this worldly life),
فَوَجَدَكِ لِمَا ٱمْتَحَنَكِ صَابِرَةً
fawajadaki lima imtahanaki sabiratan
and thus He found you successfully enduring in that trial.
وَزَعَمْنَا انَّا لَكِ اوْلِيَاءٌ وَمُصَدِّقُونَ
wa za`amna anna laki awlya'un wa musaddiquna
We claim being loyalists to you, believers in you,
وَصَابِرُونَ لِكُلِّ مَا اتَانَا بِهِ ابُوكِ
wa sabiruna likulli ma atana bihi abuki
and tolerant as regards all that which has been conveyed to us by your father,
صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ
salla allahu `alayhi wa alihi
peace of Allah be upon him and his Household,
وَاتَىٰ بِهِ وَصِيُّهُ
wa ata bihi wasiyyuhu
and all that which his Successor has brought to us.
فَإِنَّا نَسْالُكِ إِنْ كُنَّا صَدَّقْنَاكِ
fa'inna nas'aluki in kunna saddaqnaki
We, thus, ask you, if we have really believed you,
إِلاَّ الْحَقْتِنَا بِتَصْدِيقِنَا لَهُمَا
illa alhaqtina bitasdiqina lahuma
that you may include us with those who believe in both of them (i.e. the Holy Prophet and Imam `Ali),
لِنُبَشِّرَ انْفُسَنَا بِانَّا قَدْ طَهُرْنَا بِوِلايَتِكِ
linubashshira anfusana bi'anna qad tahurna biwilayatiki
so that we may feel happy that we have been purified on account of our loyalty to you.
