S25 – His Supplication for his ChildrenS25 – His Supplication for his Children

O God,

be kind to me through

the survival of my children,

setting them right for me,

and allowing me to enjoy them!



My God,

make long their lives for me,

increase their terms,

bring up the smallest for me,

strengthen the weakest for me,

rectify for me

their bodies,

their religious dedication,

and their moral traits,

make them well in

their souls,

their limbs,

and everything that concerns me of their affair,

and pour out for me and upon my hand

their provisions!



Make them

pious, fearing,

insightful, hearing,

and obedient toward You,

loving and well-disposed

toward Your friends,

and stubbornly resistant and full of hate

toward all Your enemies!




O God,

through them

strengthen my arm,

straighten my burdened back,

multiply my number,

adorn my presence,

keep alive my mention,

suffice me when I am away,

help me in my needs,

and make them

loving toward me,

affectionate, approaching,

upright, obedient,

never disobedient, disrespectful,

opposed, or offenders!



Help me in their upbringing,

their education,

and my devotion toward them,

give me among them from Yourself male children,

make that a good for me,

and make them a help for me

in that which I ask from You!



Give me and my progeny refuge from the accursed Satan,

for You have created us,

commanded us,

and prohibited us,

and made us

desire the reward of what You have commanded,

and fear its punishment!

You assigned to us an enemy

who schemes against us,

gave him an authority over us

in a way that You did not give us authority over him,

allowed him to dwell in our breasts

and let him run in our blood vessels;

he is not heedless,

though we be heedless,

he does not forget,

though we forget;

he makes us feel secure from Your punishment

and fills us with fear toward other than You.



If we are about to commit an indecency,

he gives us courage to do so,

and if we are about to perform a righteous work,

he holds us back from it.

He opposes us through passions,117

and sets up for us doubts.

If he promises us, he lies,

and if he raises our hopes, he fails to fulfil them.

If You do not turn his trickery away from us,

he will misguide us,

and if You do not protect us from his corruption,

he will cause us to slip.



O God,

so defeat his authority over us through Your authority,

such that You hold him back from us

through the frequency of our supplication to You

and we leave his trickery

and rise up among those preserved by You from sin!



O God,

grant me my every request,

accomplish for me my needs,

withhold not from me Your response

when You have made Yourself accountable for it to me,118

veil not my supplication from Yourself,

when You have commanded me to make it,119

and be kind to me through everything that will set me right

in this world and the next,

in everything that I remember or forget,

display or conceal,

make public or keep secret!



In all of this, place me through my asking You among

those who set things right,

those who are answered favorably

when they request from You

and from whom is not withheld

when they put their trust in You,

those accustomed to seek refuge in You,

those who profit through commerce with You,

those granted sanctuary

through Your might,

those given lawful provision in plenty from Your boundless bounty

through Your munificence and generosity,

those who reach exaltation after abasement

through You,

those granted sanctuary from wrong

through Your justice,

those released from affliction

through Your mercy,

those delivered from need after poverty

through Your riches,

those preserved from sins, slips, and offenses

through reverential fear toward You,

those successful in goodness, right conduct, and propriety

through obeying You,

those walled off from sins

through Your power,

the refrainers from every act of disobedience toward You,

the dwellers in Your neighborhood!



O God,

give me all of that through Your bestowal of success and Your mercy,

grant us refuge from the chastisement of the burning,

and give to

all the Muslims, male and female,

and all the faithful, male and female,

the like of what I have asked for myself and my children,

in the immediate of this world

and the deferred of the next!

Verily You are the Near, the Responder,

the All-hearing, the All-knowing,

the Pardoner, the Forgiving,

the Clement, the Merciful!


And give to us in this world good,

and in the next world good,

and protect us from the chastisement of the Fire
