S30 – His Supplication for Help in Repaying DebtsS30 – His Supplication for Help in Repaying Debts

O God,

bless Muhammad and his Household

and release me from a debt

which makes me lose face,

confuses my mind,

disrupts my thinking,

and prolongs my occupation with attending to it!

 

 

I seek refuge in You, my Lord,

from worry and thought about debt,

from the distraction and sleeplessness of debt;

so bless Muhammad and his Household

and give me refuge from it!

I seek sanctuary in You, my Lord, from

debt’s abasement in life

and its ill effects after death,

so bless Muhammad and his Household

and give me sanctuary from it through

a bountiful plenty

or a continually arriving sufficiency!

 

 

O God,

bless Muhammad and his Household

prevent me from extravagance and excess,

put me on the course of generous spending and moderation,

teach me excellent distribution,

hold me back through Your gentleness from squandering,

allow me to attain my provisions through lawful means,

direct my spending toward the gateways of devotion,

and take away from me any possession

which will bring forth pride in me,

lead to insolence,

or drag me in its heels to rebellion!

 

 

O God,

make me love the companionship of the poor

and help me be their companion with excellent patience!

 

 

Whenever You take away from me

the goods of this perishing world,

store them for me in Your abiding treasuries!

 

 

Make this world’s broken pieces

which You have conferred upon me

and its goods

which You have quickly granted to me

a way to reach Your neighborhood,

a link to Your nearness,

and a means to Your Garden!

Verily You are Possessor of bounty abounding,

and You are the Munificent, the Generous.
