Supplications in Islam
Supplication for the Removal of Worries
By: Imam Ali Bin Al-Hussein (Peace be up on Him)
O Reliever of worry!
O Remover of grief!
O Merciful in this world and the next and Compassionate in both!
Bless Muhammad and his Household, relieve my worry, and remove my grief!
O Eternal Refuge!
O He Who has not begotten, nor has been begotten, and equal to Him is not any one!Preserve me, purify me, and take away my affliction!
HERE YOU SHOULD RECITE THE THRONE VERSE (2:255), THE TWO SURAS OF TAKING REFUGE (113-114), AND UNITY (112); please see them at the end of this prayer. THEN SAY:
O God, I ask Thee with the asking of him whose neediness is intense, whose strength is frail, whose sins are many, the asking of one who finds no helper in his neediness, no strengthener in his frailty, no forgiver of his sin other than Thee,
O Possessor of majesty and munificence! I ask of Thee a work through which Thou wilt love him who works it and a certainty by which Thou wilt profit him who is certain with the truth of certainty concerning the execution of Thy command!
O God, bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
take my soul while it is firm in sincerity, cut off my need for this world, make my desire for what is with Thee become a yearning to meet Thee, and give me true confidence in Thee! I ask of Theethe good of the writ that has been made and I seek refuge with Thee from the evil of the writ that has been made. I ask of Thee the fear of The worshipers, the worship of those humbly fearful of Thee, the certainty of those who have confidence in Thee, and the confidence of those who have faith in Thee.
O God, make my desire in my asking like the desire of Thy friends in their asking, and my fear like the fear of Thy friends!
Employ me in Thy good pleasure through works in which I will not leave aside anything of Thy religion fearing any of Thy creatures!
O God, this is my need, so make my desire for it great, within it make manifest my excuse, through it instil me with my argument, and by means of it make well my body!
O God, some rise in the morning having trust or hope in other than Thee. I rise in the morning, and Thou art my trust and my hope in all affairs, so decree for me those which are best in out come and deliver me from misguiding trials,O Most Merciful of the merciful! And God bless our chief, Muhammad the Messenger of God, the chosen, and his Household, the pure!
THE THRONE VERSE (2:255),
Allah. There is no god but He,-the Living, the Self-subsisting, Eternal. No slumber can seize Him nor sleep. His are all things in the heavens and on earth. Who is there can intercede in His presence except as He permitteth? He knoweth what (appeareth to His creatures as) before or after or behind them. Nor shall they compass aught of His knowledge except as He willeth. His Throne doth extend over the heavens and the earth, and He feeleth no fatigue in guarding and preserving them for He is the Most High, the Supreme (in glory).
Surah 113 of the Holy Quran. The Daybreak, Dawn
Say: I seek refuge with the Lord of the Dawn; From the mischief of created things; From the mischief of Darkness as it overspreads; From the mischief of those who practise secret arts; And from the mischief of the envious one as he practises envy.
Surah 114 of the Holy Quran. Mankind
Say: I seek refuge with the Lord and Cherisher of Mankind, The King (or Ruler) of Mankind, The Allah (for judge) of Mankind, From the mischief of the Whisperer (of Evil), who withdraws (after his whisper), (The same) who whispers into the hearts of Mankind, Among Jinns and among men.
Surah 112 of the Holy Quran. Unity; the Oneness of God (ALLAH)
Say: He is Allah, the One and Only; Allah, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him.
