152.O God, surely You hast confirmed Your religion in all times

بِإمَام أَقَمْتَهُ عَلَماً لِعِبَادِكَ وَّمَنارَاً فِي بِلاَدِكَ،

153.with an Imam whom You hast set up as a guidepost to Your servants and a lighthouse in Your lands,

بَعْدَ أَنْ وَصَلْتَ حَبْلَهُ بِحَبْلِكَ،

154.after his cord has been joined to Your cord!

وَجَعَلْتَهُ الذَّرِيعَةَ إلَى رِضْوَانِكَ،

155.You hast appointed him the means to Your good pleasure,

وَافْتَرَضْتَ طَاعَتَهُ، وَحَذَّرْتَ مَعْصِيَتَهُ،

156.made obeying him obligatory, cautioned against disobeying him,

وَأَمَرْتَ بِامْتِثَالِ أوَاِمِرِه وَالانْتِهَآءِ عِنْدَ نَهْيِهِ،

157.and commanded following his commands, abandoning what he has prohibited,

وَأَلاَّ يَتَقَدَّمَهُ مُتَقَدِّمٌ، وَلاَ يَتَأَخَّرَ عَنْهُ مُتَأَخِّرٌ،فَهُوَ عِصْمَةُ اللاَّئِذِينَ

158.and that no forward-goer go ahead of him or back-keeper keep back from him! So he is the preservation of the shelter-seekers,

، وَكَهْفُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ، وَعُرْوَةُ الْمُتَمَسِّكِينَ، وَبَهَآءُ الْعَالَمِينَ.

159.the cave of the faithful, the handhold of the adherents, and the radiance of the worlds!

أللَّهُمَّ فَأَوْزِعْ لِوَلِيِّكَ شُكْرَ مَا أَنْعَمْتَ بِهِ عَلَيْهِ،

160.O God, so inspire Your guardian to give thanks for that in which You hast favoured him,

وَأَوْزِعْنَا مِثْلَهُ فِيهِ، وَآتِهِ مِنْ لَدُنْكَ سُلْطَاناً نَصِيراً،

161.inspire us with the like concerning him, grant him ‘an authority from You to help him’ (ref.17:80),

وَافْتَحْ لَهُ فَتْحاً يَسِيراً، وَأَعِنْهُ بِرُكْنِكَ الاعَزِّ،

162.open for him an easy opening, aid him with Your mightiest pillar,

وَاشْدُدْ أَزْرَهُ، وَقَوِّ عَضُدَهُ، وَرَاعِهِ بِعَيْنِكَ،

163.brace up his back, strengthen his arm, guard him with Your eye,

وَاحْمِهِ بِحِفْظِكَ، وَانْصُرْهُ بِمَلائِكَتِكَ،

164.defend him with Your safeguarding, help him with Your angels,

وَامْدُدْهُ بِجُنْدِكَ الاَغْلَبِ وَأَقِمْ بِهِ كِتَابَكَ وَحُدُودَكَ،

165.and assist him with Your most victorious troops! Through him establish Your Book, Your bounds,

وَشَرَائِعَكَ وَسُنَنَ رَسُولِكَ صَلَوَاتُكَ اللَّهُمَّ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ،

166.Your laws, and the norms of Your Messenger’s Sunna (Your blessings, O God, be upon him and his Household),

وَأَحْيِ بِهِ مَا أَمَاتَهُ الظَّالِمُونَ مِنْ مَعَالِمِ دِينِكَ،

167.bring to life the guideposts of Your religion, deadened by the wrongdoers,

وَاجْلُ بِهِ صَدَآءَ الْجَوْرِ عَنْ طَرِيقَتِكَ،

168.burnish the rust of injustice from Your way,

وَأَبِنْ بِهِ الضَّرَّآءَ مِنْ سَبِيلِكَ،

169.sift the adversity from Your road,

وَأَزِلْ بِهِ النَّاكِبِينَ عَنْ صِرَاطِكَ،

170.eliminate those who deviate from Your path,

وَامْحَقْ بِهِ بُغَاةَ قَصْدِكَ عِوَجاً،

171.and erase those who seek crookedness in Your straightness!

وَأَلِنْ جَانِبَهُ لاَِوْلِيَآئِكَ، وَابْسُطْ يَدَهُ عَلَى أَعْدَائِكَ،

172.Make his side mild toward Your friends, stretch forth his hand over Your enemies,

وَهَبْ لَنا رَأْفَتَهُ وَرَحْمَتَهُ وَتَعَطُّفَهُ وَتَحَنُّنَهُ،

173.give us his clemency, his mercy, his tenderness, his sympathy,

وَاجْعَلْنَا لَهُ سَامِعِينَ مُطِيعِينَ، وَفِي رِضَاهُ سَاعِينَ،

174.and make us his hearers and obeyers, strivers toward his good pleasure,

وَإلَى نُصْرَتِهِ وَالْمُدَافَعَةِ عَنْهُ مُكْنِفِينَ،

175.assistants in helping him and defending him,

وَإلَيْكَ وَإلَى رَسُولِكَ صَلَواتُكَ

176.and brought near through that to You and Your Messenger

اللَّهُمَّ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ بِذَلِكَ مُتَقَرِّبِينَ.

177.(Your blessings, O God, be upon him and his Household).

أللَّهُمَّ وَصَلِّ عَلَى أَوْلِيآئِهِمُ الْمُعْتَرِفِينَ بِمَقَامِهِمْ،

178.O God, and bless the friends [of the Imams], the confessors of their station,

الْمُتَّبِعِينَ مَنْهَجَهُمْ، الْمُقْتَفِيْنَ آثَارَهُمْ،

179.the keepers to their course, the pursuers of their tracks,

الْمُسْتَمْسِكِينَ بِعُرْوَتِهِمْ، الْمُتَمَسِّكِينَ بِوَلاَيَتِهِمْ،

180.the clingers to their handhold, the adherents to their guardianship,

الْمُؤْتَمِّينَ بِإمَامَتِهِمْ، الْمُسَلِّمِينَ لاَِمْرِهِمْ

181.the followers of their imamate, the submitters to their command,

الْمُجْتَهِدِيْنَ فِي طاعَتِهِمْ، الْمُنْتَظِرِيْنَ أَيَّامَهُمْ،

182.the strivers to obey them, the awaiters of their days,

الْمَادِّينَ إلَيْهِمْ أَعْيُنَهُمْ،

183.the directors of their eyes toward them,

الصَّلَوَاتِ الْمُبَارَكَاتِ الزَّاكِيَاتِ النَّامِيَاتِ الغَادِيَاتِ، الرَّائِحاتِ.

184.with blessings blessed, pure, growing, fresh, and fragrant!

وَسَلِّمْ عَلَيْهِمْ وَعَلَى أَرْوَاحِهِمْ،

185.Give them and their spirits peace,

وَاجْمَعْ عَلَى التَّقْوَى أَمْرَهُمْ،

وَأَصْلِحْ لَهُمْ شُؤُونَهُمْ،

187.set right their situations,

وَتُبْ عَلَيْهِمْ

188.turn toward them,

إنَّكَ أَنْتَ التَّوَّابُ الرَّحِيمُ وَخَيْرُ الْغَافِرِينَ،

189.”Surely You art Ever-turning, All-compassionate” (2:128) and the Best of forgivers,

وَاجْعَلْنَا مَعَهُمْ فِي دَارِ السَّلاَمِ بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ.

190.and place us with them in the Abode of Peace, through Your mercy, O Most Merciful of the merciful!

أللَّهُمَّ هَذَا يَوْمُ عَرَفَةَ،

191.O God, this is the Day of ‘Arafa,

يَوْمٌ شَرَّفْتَهُ وَكَرَّمْتَهُ وَعَظَّمْتَهُ، نَشَرْتَ فِيهِ رَحْمَتَكَ،

192.a day which You hast made noble, given honour, and magnified. Within it You hast spread Your mercy,

وَمَنَنْتَ فِيهِ بِعَفْوِكَ وَأَجْزَلْتَ فِيهِ عَطِيَّتَكَ،

193.showed kindness through Your pardon, and made plentiful Your giving,

وَتَفَضَّلْتَ بِهِ عَلَى عِبَادِكَ.

194.and by it You hast been bounteous toward Your servants.

أللَّهُمَّ وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ الَّذِي أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِ قَبْلَ خَلْقِكَ لَهُ، وَبَعْدَ خَلْقِكَ إيَّاهُ،

195.I am Your servant whom You favoured before creating him and after creating him.

فَجَعَلْتَهُ مِمَّنْ هَدَيْتَهُ لِدِينِكَ،

196.You madest him one of those whom You guided to Your religion,

وَوَفَّقْتَهُ لِحَقِّكَ، وَعَصَمْتَهُ بِحَبْلِكَ،

197.gavest success in fulfilling Your right, preserved through Your cord,

وَأَدْخَلْتَهُ فِيْ حِزْبِكَ، وَأَرْشَدْتَهُ لِمُوَالاَةِ أَوْليآئِكَ،

198.included within Your party, and directed aright to befriend Your friends

وَمُعَادَاةِ أَعْدَائِكَ، ثُمَّ أَمَرْتَهُ فَلَمْ يَأْتَمِرْ،

199.and show enmity to Thine enemies. Then You commanded him, but he did not follow Your commands,

وَزَجَرْتَهُ فَلَمْ يَنْزَجِرْ، وَنَهَيْتَهُ عَنْ مَعْصِيَتِكَ فَخَالَفَ أَمْرَكَ إلَى نَهْيِكَ،

200.You restricted Him, but he did not heed Your restrictions, You prohibited him from disobedience toward You, but he broke Your command by doing what You hadst prohibited,

لاَ مُعَانَدَةً لَكَ وَلاَ اسْتِكْبَاراً عَلَيْكَ،

201.not in contention with You, nor to display pride toward You;

بَلْ دَعَاهُ هَوَاهُ إلَى مَا زَيَّلْتَهُ، وَإلَى مَا حَذَّرْتَهُ،

202.on the contrary, his caprice called him to that which You hadst set apart and cautioned against,

وَأَعَانَهُ عَلَى ذالِكَ عَدُوُّكَ وَعَدُوُّهُ،

203.and he was helped in that by Your enemy and his enemy.

فَأَقْدَمَ عَلَيْهِ عَارِفاً بِوَعِيْدِكَ، رَاجِياً لِعَفْوِكَ،

204.So he went ahead with it knowing Your threat, hoping for Your pardon,

وَاثِقاً بِتَجَاوُزِكَ، وَكَانَ أَحَقَّ عِبَادِكَ ـ

205.and relying upon Your forbearance, though he was the most obligated of Your servants

مَعَ مَا مَنَنْتَ عَلَيْهِ ـ أَلاَّ يَفْعَلَ،

206.- given Your kindness toward him – not to do so.

وَهَا أَنَا ذَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ صَاغِراً،

207.Here I am, then, before You, despised,

ذَلِيلاً، خَاضِعَاً، خَاشِعاً، خَائِفَاً،

208.lowly, humble, abject, fearful,

مُعْتَرِفاً بِعَظِيم مِنَ الذُّنُوبِ تَحَمَّلْتُهُ،

209.confessing the dreadful sins with which I am burdened

وَجَلِيْل مِنَ الْخَطَايَا اجْتَرَمْتُهُ،

210.and the great offenses that I have committed,

مُسْتَجِيراً بِصَفْحِكَ، لائِذاً بِرَحْمَتِكَ،

211.seeking sanctuary in Your forgiveness, asking shelter in Your mercy,

مُوقِناً أَنَّهُ لاَ يُجِيرُنِي مِنْكَ مُجِيرٌ،

212.and certain that no sanctuary-giver will give me sanctuary from You

وَلاَ يَمْنَعُنِي مِنْكَ مَانِعٌ .

213.and no withholder will hold me back from You.

فَعُدْ عَلَيَّ بِمَا تَعُودُ بِهِ عَلَى مَنِ اقْتَرَفَ مِنْ تَغَمُّدِكَ،

214.So act kindly toward me, just as You actest kindly by Your shielding him who commits sins,

وَجُدْ عَلَيَّ بِمَا تَجُودُ بِهِ عَلَى مَنْ أَلْقَى بِيَدِهِ إلَيْكَ مِنْ عَفْوِكَ،

215.be munificent toward me, just as You art munificent by pardoning him who throws himself before You,

وَامْنُنْ عَلَيَّ بِمَا لاَ يَتَعَاظَمُكَ

216.and show kindness to me, just as it is nothing great for You

أَنْ تَمُنَّ بِهِ عَلَى مَنْ أَمَّلَكَ مِنْ غُفْرَانِكَ،

217.to show kindness by forgiving him who expectantly hopes in You!

وَاجْعَلْ لِي فِي هَذَا الْيَوْمِ نَصِيباً أَنَالُ بِهِ حَظّاً مِنْ رِضْوَانِكَ،

218.Appoint for me in this day an allotment through which I may attain a share of Your good pleasure,

وَلاَ تَرُدَّنِي صِفْراً مِمَّا يَنْقَلِبُ بِهِ الْمُتَعَبِّدُونَ لَكَ مِنْ عِبَادِكَ،

219.and send me not back destitute of that with which Your worshipers return from among Your servants!

وَإنِّي وَإنْ لَمْ أُقَدِّمْ مَا قَدَّمُوهُ مِنَ الصَّالِحَاتِ،

220.Though I have not forwarded the righteous deeds which they have forwarded,

فَقَد قَدَّمْتُ تَوْحِيدَكَ،

221.I have forwarded the profession of Your Unity

وَنَفْيَ الاَضْدَادِ وَالاَنْدَادِ وَالاشْبَاهِ عَنْكَ،

222.and the negation from You of opposites, rivals, and likenesses,

وَأَتَيْتُكَ مِنَ الاَبْوَابِ الَّتِي أَمَرْتَ أَنْ تُؤْتى مِنْها،

223.I have come to You by the gateways by which You hast commanded that people come,

وَتَقَرَّبْتُ إلَيْكَ بِمَا لاَ يَقْرُبُ ،

224.and I have sought nearness to You through that, without seeking nearness through which,

أَحَدٌ مِنْكَ إلاَّ بِالتَّقَرُّبِ بِهِ

225.none gains nearness to You.

ثُمَّ أَتْبَعْتُ ذلِكَ بِالاِنابَةِ إلَيْكَ،

226.Then I followed all this with repeated turning toward You,

وَالتَّذَلُّلِ وَالاسْتِكَانَةِ لَكَ، وَحُسْنِ الظَّنِّ بِكَ، وَالثِّقَةِ بِمَا عِنْدَكَ،

227.lowliness and abasement before You, good opinion of You, and trust in what is with You;

وَشَفَعْتُهُ بِرَجآئِكَ

228.and to that I coupled hope in You,

الَّذِي قَلَّ مَا يَخِيبُ عَلَيْهِ رَاجِيْكَ،

229.since the one who hopes in You is seldom disappointed!

وَسَأَلْتُكَ مَسْأَلَةَ الْحَقِيرِ الذّلِيلِ

230.I asked You with the asking of one vile, lowly,

الْبَائِسِ الْفَقِيْرِ الْخَائِفِ الْمُسْتَجِيرِ،

231.pitiful, poor, fearful, seeking sanctuary;

وَمَعَ ذَلِكَ خِيفَةً وَتَضَرُّعاً وَتَعَوُّذاً وَتَلَوُّذاً،

232.all that in fear and pleading, seeking refuge and asking shelter,

لاَ مُسْتَطِيلاً بِتَكبُّرِ الْمُتَكَبِّرِينَ،

233.not presumptuous through the pride of the proud,

وَلاَ مُتَعَالِياً بِدالَّةِ الْمُطِيعِينَ،

234.nor exalting myself with the boldness of the obedient,

وَلاَ مُسْتَطِيلاً بِشَفَاعَةِ الشَّافِعِينَ،

235.nor presumptuous of the intercession of the interceders.

وَأَنَا بَعْدُ أَقَلُّ الاَقَلِّيْنَ، وَأَذَلُّ الاَذَلِّينَ،

236.For I am still the least of the least and the lowliest of the lowly,

وَمِثْلُ الذَّرَّةِ أَوْ دُونَهَا.

237.like a dust mote or less!

فَيَا مَنْ لَمْ يَعَاجِلِ الْمُسِيئِينَ، وَلاَ يَنْدَهُ الْمُتْرَفِينَ،

238.O He who does not hurry the evildoers nor restrain those living in ease!

وَيَا مَنْ يَمُنُّ بِإقَالَةِ الْعَاثِرِينَ، وَيَتَفَضَّلُ بإنْظَارِ الْخَاطِئِينَ،

239.O He who shows kindness through releasing the stumblers and gratuitous bounty through respiting the offenders!

أَنَا الْمُسِيءُ الْمُعْتَرِفُ الْخَاطِئُ الْعَاثِرُ،

240.I am the evildoer, the confessor, the offender, the stumbler!

أَنَا الَّذِيْ أَقْدَمَ عَلَيْكَ مُجْتَرِئاً،

241.I am he who was audacious toward You as one insolent!

أَنَا الَّذِي عَصَاكَ مُتَعَمِّداً،

242.I am he who disobeyed You with forethought!

أَنَا الَّذِي اسْتَخْفى مِنْ عِبَادِكَ وَبَارَزَكَ،

243.I am he who hid myself from Your servants and blatantly showed myself to You!

أَنَا الَّذِي هَابَ عِبَادَكَ وَأَمِنَكَ

244.I am he who was awed by Your servants and felt secure from You!

أَنَا الَّذِي لَمْ يَرْهَبْ سَطْوَتَكَ وَلَمْ يَخَفْ بَأْسَكَ

245.I am he who dreaded not Your penalty and feared not Your severity!

أَنَا الْجَانِي عَلَى نَفْسِهِ، أَنَا الْمُرْتَهَنُ بِبَلِيَّتِهِ،

246.I am the offender against himself! I am the hostage to his own affliction!

الْقَلِيلُ الْحَيَاءِ، أَنَا الطَّوِيلُ الْعَنآءِ،

247.I am short in shame! I am long in suffering!

بِحَقِّ مَنِ انْتَجَبْتَ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ،

248.By the right of him whom You hast distinguished among Your creation

وَبِمَنِ اصْطَفَيْتَهُ لِنَفْسِكَ،

249.and by him whom You hast chosen for Yourself!

بِحَقِّ مَنِ اخْتَرْتَ مِنْ بَريَّتِكَ، وَمَنِ اجْتَبَيْتَ لِشَأْنِكَ،

250.By the right of him whom You hast selected from among Your creatures and by him whom You hast picked for Your task!

بِحَقِّ مَنْ وَصَلْتَ طَاعَتَهُ بِطَاعَتِكَ،

251.By the right of him the obeying of whom You hast joined to obeying You,

وَمَنْ جَعَلْتَ مَعْصِيَتَهُ كَمَعْصِيَتِكَ

252.and by him the disobeying of whom You hast made like disobeying You!

بِحَقِّ مَنْ قَرَنْتَ مُوَالاَتَهُ بِمُوالاتِكَ،

253.And by the right of him whose friendship You hast bound to Your friendship

وَمَنْ نُطْتَ مُعَادَاتَهُ بِمُعَادَاتِكَ.

254.and by him whose enmity You hast linked to Thine enmity!

تَغَمَّدْنِي فِي يَوْمِيَ هَذَا بِمَا تَتَغَمَّدُ بِهِ مَنْ جَارَ إلَيْكَ مُتَنَصِّلاً،

255.Shield me in this day of mine, by that through which You shieldest him who prays fervently to You while disavowing

وَعَاذَ بِاسْتِغْفَارِكَ تَائِباً،

256.and him who seeks refuge in Your forgiveness while repenting!

وَتَوَلَّنِي بِمَا تَتَوَلَّى بِهِ أَهْلَ طَاعَتِكَ،

257.Attend to me with that through which You attendest to the people of obedience toward You,

وَالزُّلْفَى لَدَيْكَ، وَالْمَكَانَةِ مِنْكَ،

258.proximity to You, and rank with You!

وَتَوَحَّدْنِي بِمَا تَتَوَحَّدُ بِهِ مَنْ وَفى بِعَهْدِكَ،

259.Single me out, as You singlest him out who fulfils Your covenant,

وَأَتْعَبَ نَفْسَهُ فِيْ ذَاتِكَ، وَأَجْهَدَهَا فِي مَرْضَاتِكَ،

260.fatigues himself for Your sake alone, and exerts himself in Your good pleasure!

وَلاَ تُؤَاخِذْنِي بِتَفْرِيطِيْ فِي جَنْبِكَ،

261.Take me not to task for my neglect in respect to You,

وَتَعَدِّي طَوْرِيْ فِي حُدودِكَ، وَمُجَاوَزَةِ أَحْكَامِكَ.

263.Draw me not on little by little by granting me a respite,

اسْتِدْرَاجَ مَنْ مَنَعَنِي خَيْرَ مَا عِنْدَهُ،

264.like the drawing on little by little of him who withholds from me the good he has

وَلَمْ يَشْرَكْكَ فِي حُلُولِ نِعْمَتِهِ بِي،

265.by not sharing with You in letting favour down upon me!

وَنَبِّهْنِي مِنْ رَقْدَةِ الْغَافِلِينَ،

266.Arouse me from the sleep of the heedless,

وَسِنَةِ الْمُسْرِفِينَ، وَنَعْسَةِ الْمَخْذُولِينَ.

267.the slumber of the prodigal, and the dozing of the forsaken!

وَخُذْ بِقَلْبِي إلَى مَا اسْتَعْمَلْتَ بِهِ القَانِتِيْنَ،

268.Take my heart to that in which You hast employed the devout,

وَاسْتَعْبَدْتَ بِهِ الْمُتَعَبِّدِينَ، وَاسْتَنْقَذْتَ بِهِ الْمُتَهَاوِنِينَ،

269.enthralled the worshipers, and rescued the remiss!

وَأَعِذْنِي مِمَّا يُبَاعِدُنِي عَنْكَ،

270.Give me refuge from that which will keep me far from You,

وَيَحُولُ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَ حَظِّي مِنْكَ،

271.come between me and my share from You,

وَيَصُدُّنِي عَمَّا أُحَاوِلُ لَدَيْكَ.

272.and bar me from that which I strive for in You!

وَسَهِّلْ لِي مَسْلَكَ الْخَيْرَاتِ إلَيْكَ،

273.Make easy for me the road of good deeds toward You,

وَالْمُسَابَقَةِ إلَيْهَا مِنْ حَيْثُ أَمَرْتَ،

274.racing to them from where You hast commanded,

وَالْمُشَاحَّةَ فِيهَا عَلَى مَا أَرَدْتَ.

275.and coveting them as You desirest!

وَلاَ تَمْحَقْنِي فِيمَنْ تَمْحَقُ مِنَ الْمُسْتَخِفِّينَ بِمَا أَوْعَدْتَ،

276.Efface me not along with those whom You effacest for thinking lightly of what You hast promised!

277.Destroy me not with those whom You destroyest for exposing themselves to Your hate!

278.Annihilate me not among those whom You annihilatest for deviating from Your roads!

وَنَجِّنِيْ مِنْ غَمَرَاتِ الْفِتْنَةِ،

279.Deliver me from the floods of trial,

وَخَلِّصْنِي مِنْ لَهَوَاتِ الْبَلْوى،

280.save me from the gullets of affliction,

وَأَجِرْنِي مِنْ أَخْذِ الاِمْلاءِ،

281.and grant me sanctuary from being seized by respite!
