S18 – His Supplication in PerilsS18 – His Supplication in Perils

O God,

to You belongs praise for Your excellent accomplishment

and for Your trial which You have turned away from me!

But make not my share of Your mercy

the well-being which You have quickly granted to me,

lest I become wretched through what I have loved

and someone else gain felicity through what I have disliked!

If this well-being in which 1 pass the day or night should precede a trial that does not cease

and a burden that does not pass away,

then set before me what You had set behind

and set behind me what You had set before!

For that which ends in annihilation is not great

and that which ends in subsistence is not little.

And bless Muhammad and his Household!
