S35 – His Supplication in Satisfaction with the DecreeS35 – His Supplication in Satisfaction with the Decree

His Supplication in Satisfaction when he Looked upon the Companions of this World

 

 

Praise belongs to God

in satisfaction with God’s decision!

I bear witness that

God has apportioned the livelihoods of His servants with justice and undertaken bounty for all His creatures.

 

 

O God,

bless Muhammad and his Household,

tempt me not with what You have given to Your creatures

and tempt them not with what You have withheld from me.

Lest I envy Your creatures

and despise Your decision!

 

 

O God,

bless Muhammad and his Household,

delight my soul through Your decree,

expand my breast through the instances of Your decision,

give to me a trust through which I may admit

that Your decree runs only to the best,

and let my gratitude to You

for what You have taken away from me

be more abundant than my gratitude to You

for what You have conferred upon me!

 

 

Preserve me from imagining any meanness

in someone who is destitute

or imagining any superiority

in someone who possesses wealth,

for the noble is he

whom obedience to You has ennobled

and the exalted is he

whom worship of You has exalted!

 

 

So bless Muhammad and his Household,

give us to enjoy a wealth

which does not run out,

confirm us with an exaltation

which will never be lost,

and let us roam freely

in the kingdom of everlastingness!

Surely You are the One, the Unique, the Eternal Refuge;

You have not begotten,

nor have You been begotten,

and equal to You is not any one
