S14 – His Supplication in Acts of WrongdoingS14 – His Supplication in Acts of Wrongdoing

His Supplication when Hostility was Shown to Him or when he Saw what he did not Like in Wrongdoers

 

 

O He from whom is not concealed news of the aggrieved!

O He who has no need to be told about them

by the witnessing of the witnesses!

O He who whose help is near to the wronged!

O He whose aid is far from the wrongdoers!

 

 

You know, my God,

how so-and-so, son of so-and-so,

has harmed me in that which You have forbidden,

and how he has violated me in that which You have prohibited,

showing thereby ingratitude toward Your favor upon him

and delusion concerning what You have denied him.

 

 

O God,

so bless Muhammad and his Household,

keep my wrongdoing enemy from wronging me through Your strength,

blunt his blade toward me through Your power,

and assign to him

a diversion in that which is close to him

and the inability to reach his enemy!

 

 

O God,

bless Muhammad and his Household,

let the wrongdoer not find it easy to wrong me,

give me good help against him,

preserve me from the like of his acts,

and place me not in the like of his situation!

 

 

O God,

bless Muhammad and his Household,

and assist me with an immediate assistance

that will heal my rage toward him

and redeem my fury toward him!

 

 

O God,

bless Muhammad and his Household,

compensate me for his wronging me with Your pardon

and replace his evil action toward me with Your mercy,

for every detested thing less than Your anger is slight

and every disaster next to Your rancor indifferent!

 

 

O God,

just as You have made me detest being wronged,

so also protect me from doing wrong!

 

 

O God,

I complain to no one but You,

and I seek help from no ruler other than You –

how could I?

So bless Muhammad and his Household,

join my supplication to response,

and unite my complaint with change!

 

 

O God,

tempt me not with despair of Your just treatment

and tempt him not with feeling secure from Your disapproval,

lest he persist in wronging me

and constrain me in my rights.

Let him soon recognize

what You have promised the wrongdoers”

and let me recognize

Your promised response to the distressed!

 

 

O God,

bless Muhammad and his Household,

give me success in accepting Your decrees

for me and against me,

make me pleased with what You take

for me and from me,

guide me to that which is most upright

and employ me in that which is safest!

 

 

O God,

if the best for me with You lies

in delaying the taking to task for my sake

of him who has wronged me

and in refraining from vengeance toward him

until the Day of Decision

and the Gathering of Disputants,

then bless Muhammad and his Household,

strengthen me from You

with true intention

and lasting patience,

 

give me refuge

from evil desire

and the impatience of the greedy,

and form in my heart the image of Your reward

which You have stored away for me

and the repayment and punishment

which You have prepared for my disputant!

Make this a cause of my contentment

with what You have decreed

and my trust

in what You have chosen!

 

 

Amen, Lord of the worlds!

You are of bounty abounding

and You are powerful over everything.
