S07 – His Supplication in Worrisome TasksS07 – His Supplication in Worrisome Tasks

His Supplication when Faced with a Worrisome Task or when Misfortune Descended and at the Time of Distress

 

O He through whom the knots of detested things are untied!

O He through whom the cutting edge of hardships is blunted!

O He from whom is begged the outlet to the freshness of relief!

 

 

Intractable affairs yield to Your power,

means are made ready by Your gentleness,

the decree goes into effect through Your power,

and all things proceed according to Your desire.

 

 

By Your desire

they follow Your command without Your word

and by Your will

they obey Your bans without Your prohibition.

 

 

You are the supplicated in worries

and the place of flight in misfortunes;

none of them is repelled unless You repel,

none is removed unless You remove.

 

 

Upon me has come down,

My Lord,

something whose weight burdens me

and upon me has fallen something whose carrying oppresses me.

 

 

Through Your power

You have brought it down upon me

and through Your authority

You have turned it toward me.

 

 

None can send away what You have brought,

none can deflect what You have turned,

none can open what You have closed,

none can close what You have opened,

none can make easy what You have made difficult,

none can help him whom You have abandoned.

 

 

So bless Muhammad and his Household,

open for me,

my Lord,

the door of relief through Your graciousness,

break from me the authority of worry by Your strength,

confer the beauty of Your gaze upon my complaint,

let me taste the sweetness of benefaction in what I ask,

give me from Yourself mercy and wholesome relief,

and appoint for me from Yourself a quick way out!

 

Distract me not through worry from observing Your obligations

and acting in accordance with Your prescriptions.

 

 

My capacity has been straitened,

my Lord,

by what has come down on me,

and I am filled with worry

by carrying what has happened to me,

while You have power to remove what has afflicted me

and to repel that into which I have fallen.

 

 

So do that for me

though I merit it not from You,                                                                                                         O Possessor of the Mighty Throne!
