Dua'a Kumayl -taught by Imam Ali(as) كومال  

        ORIGIN OF THE DU'A Kumayl Ibn Ziyad Nakha'i was a confidant amongst the companions of  Imam Ali Ibn Abi Talib (as.) and this sublime Du'a was first heard from the beautiful, though anguished, voice of Imam Ali.

According to Allama Majlisi (on whom be Allah's Mercy) Kumayl had attended an assembly in the Mosque at Basra which was addressed by Imam Ali in the course of which the night of the 15th of Shaban was mentioned. Imam Ali said-"Whosoever keeps awake in devoutness on this night and recites the Du'a of Prophet Khizr, undoubtedly that person's supplication will be responded to and granted. When the assembly at the Mosque had dispersed, Kumayl called at the house where Imam Ali was staying, and requested him to acquaint him with Prophet Khizr's "Du'a". Imam Ali asked Kumayl to sit down, record and memorise the "Du'a" which Imam Ali dictated to Kumayl.

Imam Ali then advised Kumayl to recite this "Du'a" on the eve of (i.e. evening preceding) every Friday, or once a month or at least once in every year so that, added Imam Ali, "Allah may protect thee from the evils of the enemies and the plots contrived by impostors. O' Kumayl! in consideration of thy companionship and understanding, I grant thee this honour of entrusting this "Du'a" to thee."

And my acts are inadequate,

وَقَعَدَتْ بِي أَغْلاَلِي

And my fetters have tied me down,

وَحَبَسَنِي عَن نَّفْعِي بُعْدُ آمَاِلي

wa ¦abasan¢ `an-naf-e'e bu`a-du ¡-m¡-l¢

And my far-fetched hopes have held me back from my gain

wa khada`at-nid-duny¡ bi-ghur£ri-h¡ wa naf-s¢ bi-jin¡yatih¡ wa mi§¡-l¢

And this world with its delusions, my own soul with its offences and my delay have deceived me.

يَا سَيِّدِي فَأَسْألُكَ بِعِزَّتِكَ أَن لا يَحْجُبَ عَنْكَ دُعَائِي سُوءُ عَمَلِي وَفِعَاِلي

wa-l¡ taf-¤a¦-n¢ bi-khaf¢-yi m¡§-§ala`ta `ailayhi min sir-r¢

And not to disgrace me through the hidden things You knowest of my secrets

wa-l¡ tu`¡jil-n¢ bil-u'q£bati `al¡ m¡ `amil-tuhu f¢ khalaw¡t¢

And not to hasten me to punishment for what I have done in private:

مِنْ سُوءِ فِعْلِي وَإِسَاءَتِي،

min s£o-i fi`a-l¢ wa is¡-at¢

My evil acts in secrecy and my misdeeds

وَدَوَامِ تَفْرِيطِي وَجَهَالَتِي

wa daw¡mi taf-r¢§¢ wa jah¡lat¢

And my continuous negligence and my ignorance

وَكَثْرَةِ شَهَوَاتِي وَغَفْلَتِي

wa kath-rati sha-haw¡t¢ wa ghaf-lat¢

And my manifold passions and my forgetfulness.

وَكُنِ اللَّهُمَّ بِعِزَّتِكَ لِي فِي كُلِّ الأَحْوَاِل رَؤُوفاً

wa kunil-l¡humma bi-i'z-zatika l¢ f¢ kul-lil-a¦-w¡li ra’£f¡

And by Your might, O Allah, be kind to me in all states

وَّعَلَيَّ فِي جَمِيعِ الأُمُورِ عَطُوفاً

wa `alay-ya f¢ jam¢i'l-um£r¢ `a§£f¡

And be gracious to me in all affairs!

إِلَهِي وَرَبِّي مَن لِّي غَيْرُكَ أَسْألُهُ كَشْفَ ضُرِّي وَالْنَّظَرَ فِي أَمْرِي!

ilah¢ wa rab-b¢ mal-l¢ ghayruka as-aluhu kash-fa ¤ur-r¢ wan-na¨ara f¢ am-r¢!

My God and my Lord! Have I any but You from whom to ask removal of my affliction and regard for my affairs!

إِلَهِي وَمَوْلاي أَجْرَيْتَ عَلَيَّ حُكْماً اتَّبَعْتُ فِيهِ هَوَى نَفْسِي،

ilah¢ wa maw-laya aj-rayta `alay-ya ¦uk-mant-taba`tu f¢hi haw¡ naf-s¢

My God and my Protector! You put into effect through me a decree in which I followed the caprice of my own soul

وَلَمْ أَحْتَرِسْ فِيهِ مِن تَزْيينِ عَدُوِّي،

wa lam a¦-taris f¢hi min tazy¢ni `ad£-w¢

And [I] did not remain wary of adorning my enemy.

فَغَرَّنِي بِمَا أَهْوَى وَأَسْعَدَهُ عَلَى ذَلِكَ القَضَاءُ

fa-ghar-ran¢ bi-m¡ ah-w¡ wa as-`adahu `al¡ dh¡-likal-qa¤¡

So he deluded me through my soul's caprice and therein destiny favoured him

فَتَجَاوَزْتُ بِمَا جَرَى عَلَيَّ مِنْ ذَلِكَ بَعْضَ حُدُودِكَ

fa-taj¡-waztu bi-m¡ jar¡ `alay-ya min dh¡-lika ba`¤a ¦ud£dik

So, in what was put into effect through me in that situation, I transgressed some of Your statutes

وَخَالَفْتُ بَعْضَ أَوَامِرِكَ

wa kh¡laf-tu ba`¤a aw¡mirik

And disobeyed some of Your commands.

فَلَكَ الْحُجَّةُ عَلَيَّ فِي جَمِيعِ ذَلِكَ

falakal-¦uj-jatu `alay-ya f¢ jam¢i' dh¡lik

So Thine is the argument against me in all of that

وَلا حُجَّةَ لِي فِيمَا جَرَي عَلَيَّ فِيهِ قَضَاؤُكَ،

wa-l¡ ¦uj-jata l¢ f¢m¡ jar¡ `alay-ya f¢hi qa¤¡uka

I have no argument in what Your destiny put into effect through me therein

وَأَلْزَمَنِي حُكْمُكَ وَبَلاؤُكَ

wa alzaman¢ ¦uk-muka wa bal¡uk

nor in what Your decree and Your tribulation imposed upon me.

وَقَدْ أَتَيْتُكَ يَا إِلَهِي بَعْدَ تَقْصِيرِي وَإِسْرَافِي عَلَى نَفْسِي

wa qad ataytuka y¡ ilah¢ ba`da taq-¥¢r¢ wa is-r¡f¢ `al¡ naf-s¢

Now I have come to You, My God, after my shortcoming and my immoderation toward myself,

O Allah, my Master and my Lord!

أَتُرَاكَ مُعَذِّبِي بِنَارِكَ بَعْدَ تَوْحِيدِكَ

Canst You see Yourself tormenting me with Your fire after I have professed Your Unity

wa ba`da man-§aw¡ `ailayhi qal-b¢ mim-ma`rifatik

And after the knowledge of You my heart has embraced,

وَلَهِجَ بِهِ لِسَانِي مِنْ ذِكْرِكَ

wa lahija bihi lis¡n¢ min dhik-rik

And the remembrance of You my tongue has constantly mentioned

وَاعْتَقَدَهُ ضَمِيرِي مِنْ حُبِّكَ

wa a`taqadahu ¨am¢r¢ min ¦ub-bik

And the love of You to which my mind has clung,
