The government of Nori Almalki should finish

The first Iraqi election after the American occupation finished and left is to count the votes!

More than 60% of the voters cast their votes. 

Almost all Iraqis want major change of the existed government and the members of the Parliament. 

The past 8 years proved without any doubt at all the failure of the government of Al-Malki and the parties of coalition with him.  Nori Almalki failed and turned into another dictator.  During his 8 year in the office corruption become widespread and deep in all the joints of Iraq.   His government remained weak, corrupted, only representing itself and not Iraq and brought more problems of all kinds. 

It is time for change with new blood and new professional and people able to build the country without discrimination and strong against corruption. 

Iraq Elections

The propaganda for the elections increased for the last few days.  Different disgusting ways used from the candidates and parties used.  Gifts, money, sectarian propaganda, tribal visits, lies, fabrications and other issues used.  No one of these parties submit a professional program for services, education, economy, health, and on the top security. 

No one put a program for genuine reconciliation of all sects of Iraq but the reverse they used the differences to buy votes!  The problem here in Iraq is the immaturity and the malformation of the election based on competing sectarian parties. 

Most important is the need for a change.  It is sad to see after the election that we have the same faces and same people again.  Change is very important to give new people the opportunity to try to create a better approach and different solution for the main problems such as the security and the reconciliation plus the economic issues. 

The existed government had 8 years in power and this is more than enough to be changed.  Of course if they succeeded to solve the problem it would have been different but they failed.  One important thing is the existed government is formed from all the parties and in Iraq there is no opposition and government as such but sectarian based parties fighting each other. 

Hopefully the new election will bring new faces from all sects; doesn’t matter Sunni or Shia or anyone else as far as they build a new Iraq for all his people without difference. 

Dua'a Al-Mashlool              دعاء المشلول


This is known as "supplication of the youth stricken for his sin".  It is reported that one day Imam Hussein and his father Imam Ali (PBUT), after performing Hajj, caught sight of a paralysed young man crying his eyes out in repentance. They went near to console him and find out the reason of his sorry plight. He was a habitual sinner, always teased his father, disobeyed him and treated him with contempt. One day, disgusted, the father invoked curse upon him. So he was affected with paralysis. Then and there Imam Ali ibn abi Talib(PBUH) wrote his dua'a and gave it to him with instruction to recite after Isha salat (night prayer). Next day fully cured, he came to Imam Ali (PBUH) and said that he had recited the dua'a as told and went to sleep. He saw the Holy Prophet (PBUH) in the dream and gently touched his body with his hand and asked him to remember this dua'a as it contain the great name of Allah.

 Recite this supplication after Isha salat. It brings countless blessings. All your legitimate desires will be fulfilled. It drives away poverty and sickness. Sins are for given. Debts are cleared. Enemies become friends. Domestic affairs are set a right. Disputes are settled in your favour. Prisoners are set free mental worries disappear. Prosperity, sound mind and healthy body stand by you at all times.

 Mercy and forgiveness of sins are the main advantages the almighty Allah makes available if this dua'a is recited regularly.

and the blessings of Allah be upon Muhammad and all His Holy Descendants.

Doaa Komiel : Prayer of Komiel
دعاء كميل

Below is one of the best and most powerful prayer to Allah that Imam Ali (PBUH) taught it to Komiel one of his faithful follower.  It happened more than 1400 years ago when the Imam (PBUH) was at his home and at night when the people were a sleep, Komiel Bin Ziad came at that night and asked the Imam (PBUH) to teach him the Prayer of Al-Khedher (PBUH).  Imam Ali (PBUH) recited this prayer and Komiel inscribed it inside himself and wrote.  The Imam (PBUH) told Komiel to read it the night of Thursday after sunset with humble and devoutness.  It is great prayer for seeking salvation, help, calmness, forgiveness of sins, protection from Hell, guidance, and included huge amount of knowledge about everything.   Read it and you will see for yourself!

بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيم

In the Name of Allah, Most Compassionate, Most Merciful;

اللَّهُمَّ َصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

O Allah, bestow Thy Peace & Blessing upon Muhammad and his Family;

اَللّـهُمَّ إنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِرَحْمَتِكَ الَّتي وَسِعَتْ كُلَّ شَيْء، وَبِقُوَّتِكَ الَّتي قَهَرْتَ بِها كُلَّ شَيْء، وَخَضَعَ لَها كُلُّ شَيء، وَذَلَّ لَها كُلُّ شَيء، وَبِجَبَرُوتِكَ الَّتي غَلَبْتَ بِها كُلَّ شَيء، وَبِعِزَّتِكَ الَّتي لا يَقُومُ لَها شَيءٌ، وَبِعَظَمَتِكَ الَّتي مَلأَتْ كُلَّ شَيء، وَبِسُلْطانِكَ الَّذي عَلا كُلَّ شَيء، وَبِوَجْهِكَ الْباقي بَعْدَ فَناءِ كُلِّ شَيء، وَبِأَسْمائِكَ الَّتي مَلأَتْ أرْكانَ كُلِّ شَيء، وَبِعِلْمِكَ الَّذي أَحاطَ بِكُلِّ شَيء، وَبِنُورِ وَجْهِكَ الَّذي أَضاءَ لَهُ كُلُّ شيء، يا نُورُ يا قُدُّوسُ، يا أَوَّلَ الأوَّلِينَ وَ يا آخِرَ الآخِرينَ

O Allah, I beseech Thee by Thy Mercy which encompasses all things; and by Thy Power by which Thou overcometh all things, and to it submit all things, and humble before it all things; and by Thy Might by which Thou hast conquered all things; and by Thy Majesty against which cannot stand any thing; and by Thy Grandeur which prevails upon all things; and by Thy Authority which is exercised over all things; and by Thy Own Self that shall endure forever after all things have vanished; and by Thy Names which manifest Thy Power over all things; and by Thy Knowledge which pervades all things; and by the light of Thy Countenance which illuminates everything; O Thou who art the Light, O Thou who art the Most Holy, O Thou who existed before the foremost, O Thou who shall exist after the last.

اَللّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِي الذُّنُوبَ الَّتي تَهْتِكُ الْعِصَمَ، اَللّـهُمَّ اغْفِـرْ لِي الذُّنُوبَ الَّتي تُنْزِلُ النِّقَمَ، اَللّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِي الذُّنُوبَ الَّتي تُغَيِّـرُ النِّعَمَ، اَللّـهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لي الذُّنُوبَ الَّتي تَحْبِسُ الدُّعاءَ، اَللّـهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِي الذُّنُوبَ الَّتي تُنْزِلُ الْبَلاءَ، اَللّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لي كُلَّ ذَنْب اَذْنَبْتُهُ، وَ كُلَّ خَطيئَة اَخْطَأتُها

O Allah, forgive me such sins that affront my continency; O Allah, forgive me such sins that bring down calamity; O Allah, forgive me such sins that change divine favours into disfavours; O Allah, forgive me such sins as would hinder my supplication; O Allah, forgive me such sins that bring down afflictions; O Allah, forgive me such sins that suppress hope; O Allah, forgive every sin that I have committed and every error that I have erred.

اَللّهُمَّ اِنّي اَتَقَرَّبُ اِلَيْكَ بِذِكْرِكَ، وَاَسْتَشْفِعُ بِكَ إلى نَفْسِكَ، وَأَسْأَلُكَ بِجُودِكَ أن تُدْنِيَني مِنْ قُرْبِكَ، وَأَنْ تُوزِعَني شُكْرَكَ، وَأَنْ تُلْهِمَني ذِكْرَكَ، اَللّهُمَّ إني أَسْأَلُكَ سُؤالَ خاضِع مُتَذَلِّل خاشِع، أن تُسامِحَني وَتَرْحَمَني وَ تَجْعَلَني بِقِسْمِكَ راضِياً قانِعاً، وَفي جَميعِ الأحوال مُتَواضِعاً

O Allah, I endeavour to draw myself near to Thee through Thy invocation; and I pray to Thee to intercede on my behalf to Thyself; and I entreat Thee by Thy benevolence to draw me nearer to Thee; and grant me that I should be grateful to Thee and inspire me to remember and to invoke Thee; O Allah, I entreat Thee begging Thee submissively, humbly and awestrickenly to treat me with clemency and mercy, and to make me pleased and contented with what Thou hast allotted to me, and to cause me to be modest and humble in all circumstances.

اَللّهُمَّ وَأَسْأَلُكَ سُؤالَ مَنِ اشْتَدَّتْ فاقَتُهُ، وَاَنْزَلَ بِكَ عِنْدَ الشَّدائِدِ حاجَتَهُ، وَعَظُمَ فيما عِنْدَكَ رَغْبَتُه، اَللّـهُمَّ عَظُمَ سُلْطانُكَ، وَعَلا مَكانُكَ، وَخَفِي مَكْرُكَ، وَظَهَرَ اَمْرُكَ وَغَلَبَ قَهْرُكَ، وَجَرَتْ قُدْرَتُكَ، وَلا يُمْكِنُ الْفِرارُ مِنْ حُكُومَتِكَ

O Allah, I beg Thee as one who is passing through extreme hardship and who supplicates his needs to Thee and his hope has been greatly raised by that which is with Thee; O Allah, Great is Thy kingdom and exalted is Thy greatness; Thy plan is secret, Thy authority is manifest, Thy might is victorious and subduing, and Thy power is prevalent throughout and it is not possible to escape from Thy dominion.

اَللّهُمَّ لا أجِدُ لِذُنُوبي غافِراً، وَلا لِقَبائِحي ساتِراً، وَلا لِشَيء مِنْ عَمَلِي الْقَبيحِ بِالْحَسَنِ مُبَدِّلاً غَيْرَكَ، لا اِلـهَ إلاّ أنْتَ، سُبْحانَكَ وَبِحَمْدِكَ، ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسي، وَتَجَرَّأْتُ بِجَهْلي، وَسَكَنْتُ إلى قَديمِ ذِكْرِكَ لي وَمَنِّكَ عَلَيَّ

O Allah, I do not find other than Thee any one able to pardon my sins, nor to conceal my loathsome acts, nor have I any one except Thee to change my evil deeds into virtues; There is no god but Thou; glory and praise be to Thee, I have made my own soul to suffer; I had the audacity, by my ignorance, relying upon my past remembrance of Thee and Thy grace towards me.

اَللّهُمَّ مَوْلاي كَمْ مِنْ قَبيح سَتَرْتَهُ، وَكَمْ مِنْ فادِح مِنَ الْبَلاءِ اَقَلْتَهُ، وَكَمْ مِنْ عِثارٍ وَقَيْتَهُ، وَكَمْ مِنْ مَكْرُوهٍ دَفَعْتَهُ، وَكَمْ مِنْ ثَناءٍ جَميلٍ لَسْتُ اَهْلاً لَهُ نَشَرْتَهُ

O Allah, my Lord, how many of my loathsome acts hast Thou veiled away; and how many of my grievous afflictions hast Thou reduced in severity; And how many of my stumblings hast Thou protected; and how many of my detestable acts has Thou averted; and how many of my undeserving praises hast Thou spread far and wide.

اَللّهُمَّ عَظُمَ بَلائي، وَاَفْرَطَ بي سُوءُ حالي، وَقَصُرَتْ بي اَعْمالي، وَقَعَدَتْ بي اَغْلالي، وَحَبَسَني عَنْ نَفْعي بُعْدُ اَمَلي، وَخَدَعَتْنِي الدُّنْيا بِغُرُورِها، وَنَفْسي بِجِنايَتِها، وَمِطالي يا سَيِّدي

O Allah, My trials and sufferings have increased, my evilness has worsened, my good deeds have diminished, and the chains of my misdeeds have become firm; and the remoteness of my hopes have restrained me from benefitting myself by good deeds; and the world has deceived me with its allurements and my own self has been affected by treachery and procrastination.

فَأَسْأَلُكَ بِعِزَّتِكَ أن لا يَحْجُبَ عَنْكَ دُعائي سُوءُ عَمَلي وَفِعالي، وَلا تَفْضَحْني بِخَفِي مَا اطَّلَعْتَ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ سِرّي، وَلا تُعاجِلْني بِالْعُقُوبَةِ عَلى ما عَمِلْتُهُ في خَلَواتي مِنْ سُوءِ فِعْلي وَإساءَتي، وَدَوامِ تَفْريطي وَجَهالَتي، وَكَثْرَةِ شَهَواتي وَغَفْلَتي، وَكُنِ اللّهُمَّ بِعِزَّتِكَ لي في كُلِّ الأحوالِ رَؤوفاً، وَعَلَي في جَميعِ الاُْمُورِ عَطُوفاً

Therefore, my Lord, I implore Thee by Thy Greatness not to let my sins and my misdeeds prevent my prayers from reaching Thy realm; and not to disgrace me by exposing my secrets of which Thou hast knowledge; nor to hasten my retribution for those vices and misdeeds committed by me in secret, which were due to my evil mindedness, my ignorance, my excessive lustfulness and my negligence; O Allah, I beg Thee by Thy greatness to be compassionate to me in all circumstances and well disposed towards me in all matters.

اِلـهي وَرَبّي مَنْ لي غَيْرُكَ أَسْأَلُهُ كَشْفَ ضُرّي، وَالنَّظَرَ في اَمْري، اِلهي وَمَوْلاي اَجْرَيْتَ عَلَي حُكْماً اِتَّبَعْتُ فيهِ هَوى نَفْسي، وَلَمْ اَحْتَرِسْ فيهِ مِنْ تَزْيينِ عَدُوّي، فَغَرَّني بِما اَهْوى وَاَسْعَدَهُ عَلى ذلِكَ الْقَضاءُ، فَتَجاوَزْتُ بِما جَرى عَلَيَّ مِنْ ذلِكَ بَعْضَ حُدُودِكَ، وَخالَفْتُ بَعْضَ اَوامِرِكَ، فَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ عَلي في جَميعِ ذلِكَ، وَلا حُجَّةَ لي فيما جَرى عَلَيَّ فيهِ قَضاؤُكَ، وَاَلْزَمَني حُكْمُكَ وَبَلاؤُكَ

My God, My Nourisher, Have I anyone except Thee from whom I can seek the dislodging of my evils and understanding of my problems? My God, My Master, Thou decreed a law for me but instead I obeyed my own low desires, and I did not guard myself against the allurements of my enemy. Thus he deceived me with my vain hopes whereby I was led astray and fate helped him in that respect; Thus I transgressed some of the limits set for me by Thee, and I disobeyed some of Thy commandments; for Thou is the praise in all those matters, and I have no plea against Thy judgement passed against me; I have therefore become justifiably liable to Thy judgement and afflictions.

وَقَدْ اَتَيْتُكَ يا اِلـهي بَعْدَ تَقْصيري وَاِسْرافي عَلى نَفْسي مُعْتَذِراً نادِماً مُنْكَسِراً مُسْتَقيلاً مُسْتَغْفِراً مُنيباً مُقِرّاً مُذْعِناً مُعْتَرِفاً، لا أجِدُ مَفَرّاً مِمّا كانَ مِنّي، وَلا مَفْزَعاً اَتَوَجَّهُ إليه في أَمْري، غَيْرَ قَبُولِكَ عُذْري، وَاِدْخالِكَ اِيّايَ في سَعَة رَحْمَتِكَ

But now I have turned to Thee, my Lord, after being guilty of shortcomings and transgressions against my soul; apologetic, repentant, broken, entreating earnestly for forgiveness, confessing and affirming and admitting my guilt; as I can find no escape from that which was done by me, and having no refuge to which I could turn, except seeking Thy acceptance of my excuse, and Thy admitting me into the spacious realm of Thy mercy.

اَللّـهُمَّ فَاقْبَلْ عُذْري، وَارْحَمْ شِدَّةَ ضُرّي، وَفُكَّني مِنْ شَدِّ وَثاقي

O Allah, accept my apology, and have pity on my intense suffering, and set me free from my heavy shackles.

يا رَبِّ ارْحَمْ ضَعْفَ بَدَني، وَرِقَّةَ جِلْدي، وَدِقَّةَ عَظْمي، يا مَنْ بَدَأَ خَلْقي وَذِكْري وَتَرْبِيَتي وَبِرّي وَتَغْذِيَتي هَبْني لاِبـْتِداءِ كَرَمِكَ، وَسالِفِ بِرِّكَ بي

My Lord, have mercy on the weakness of my body, and on the delicacy of my skin, and the brittleness of my bones; O' Thou who originated my creation, and accorded me my individuality, and ensured my upbringing and welfare, and provided my sustenance; I beg Thee to restore Thy generosity upon me as Thou didst in the beginning of my life.

يا اِلـهي وَسَيِّدي وَرَبّي، اَتُراكَ مُعَذِّبي بِنارِكَ بَعْدَ تَوْحيدِكَ، وَبَعْدَ مَا انْطَوى عَلَيْهِ قَلْبي مِنْ مَعْرِفَتِكَ، وَلَهِجَ بِهِ لِساني مِنْ ذِكْرِكَ، وَاعْتَقَدَهُ ضَميري مِنْ حُبِّكَ، وَبَعْدَ صِدْقِ اعْتِرافي ودُعائي خاضِعاً لِرُبُوبِيَّتِكَ

O' my God, my master, my Lord, and my Nourisher; wilt Thou see me punished with the fire kindled by Thee after I have testified of Thy Oneness? and after my heart has been filled with knowledge of Thee; and after my tongue has repeatedly praised Thee; and after my conscience has acknowledged Thy love; and after my sincere confessions of my sins, and my humble supplications, submissively made to Thy divinity?

هَيْهاتَ أنْتَ اَكْرَمُ مِنْ أنْ تُضَيِّعَ مَنْ رَبَّيْتَهُ، أوْ تُبَعِّدَ مَنْ أدْنَيْتَهُ، اَوْ تُشَرِّدَ مَنْ آوَيْتَهُ، اَوْ تُسَلِّمَ اِلَى الْبَلاءِ مَنْ كافَيْتَهُ وَرَحِمْتَهُ، وَلَيْتَ شِعْري يا سَيِّدي وَاِلـهي وَمَوْلايَ، اَتُسَلِّطُ النّارَ عَلى وُجُوه خَرَّتْ لِعَظَمَتِكَ ساجِدَةً، وَعَلى اَلْسُن نَطَقَتْ بِتَوْحيدِكَ صادِقَةً، وَبِشُكْرِكَ مادِحَةً، وَعَلى قُلُوبٍ اعْتَرَفَتْ بِإلهِيَّتِكَ مُحَقِّقَةً، وَعَلى ضَمائِرَ حَوَتْ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ بِكَ حَتّى صارَتْ خاشِعَةً، وَعَلى جَوارِحَ سَعَتْ إلى أوْطانِ تَعَبُّدِكَ طائِعَةً، وَاَشارَتْ بِاسْتِغْفارِكَ مُذْعِنَةً، ما هكَذَا الظَّنُّ بِكَ، وَلا اُخْبِرْنا بِفَضْلِكَ عَنْكَ

Nay, Thou art far too kind and generous to allow one whom Thouself has nourished and supported to be lost, or to drive away from Thyself one whom Thouself has brought near, or to make destitute one whom Thouself hast given accommodation, or to abandon to affliction one whom Thouself hast nourished and to whom Thouself hast been merciful. I wish I had known, O' my Master, my God and my Lord, Wilt Thou inflict fire upon faces which have submissively bowed in prostration to Thy greatness, or upon tongues which have uttered Thy Oneness with sincerity, and have always praised Thee in gratitude, or upon hearts which have acknowledged Thy divinity with conviction, or upon minds which have accumulated so much knowledge of Thee that they reached a state of piety to Thee, or upon limbs which strove to the places appointed for Thy worship, to adore Thee willingly and seek Thy forgiveness submissively? Such is not expected from Thee, nor is this what we have been informed of Thy grace.

يا كَريمُ يا رَبِّ وَاَنْتَ تَعْلَمُ ضَعْفي عَنْ قَليل مِنْ بَلاءِ الدُّنْيا وَعُقُوباتِها، وَما يَجْري فيها مِنَ الْمَكارِهِ عَلى أهْلِها، عَلى أنَّ ذلِكَ بَلاءٌ وَمَكْرُوهٌ قَليلٌ مَكْثُهُ، يَسيرٌ بَقاؤُهُ، قَصيرٌ مُدَّتُهُ، فَكَيْفَ احْتِمالي لِبَلاءِ الآخِرَةِ، وَجَليلِ وُقُوعِ الْمَكارِهِ فيها، وَهُوَ بَلاءٌ تَطُولُ مُدَّتُهُ، وَيَدُومُ مَقامُهُ، وَلا يُخَفَّفُ عَنْ اَهْلِهِ، لاَِنَّهُ لا يَكُونُ إلاّ عَنْ غَضَبِكَ وَاْنتِقامِكَ وَسَخَطِكَ، وَهذا ما لا تَقُومُ لَهُ السَّمـاواتُ وَالأرْضُ، يا سَيِّدِي فَكَيْفَ لي وَأنَا عَبْدُكَ الضَّعيـفُ الـذَّليـلُ الْحَقيـرُ الْمِسْكيـنُ الْمُسْتَكينُ

O' generous One, O' my Lord, Thou art aware of my weakness to bear even the smallest afflictions of this world, and the adversities that occur to the dwellers of this earth, although such afflictions are momentary, short-lived and transient; how then can I bear the retributions and the punishments of the hereafter which are enormous and of intensive suffering, of prolonged period and perpetual duration, and which shall never be alleviated for those who deserve it, as those retributions will be the result of Thy wrath, which neither the heavens nor the earth can withstand and bear. My Lord, how can I, a weak, insignificant, humble, poor and destitute creature of Thine be able to bear them, then?

يا اِلهي وَرَبّي وَ سَيِّدِي وَمَوْلايَ لأيِّ الاُْمُورِ اِلَيْكَ اَشْكُو، وَلِما مِنْها أضِجُّ وَاَبْكي، لأليمِ الْعَذابِ وَشِدَّتِهِ، أمْ لِطُولِ الْبَلاءِ وَمُدَّتِهِ، فَلَئِنْ صَيَّرْتَني لِلْعُقُوباتِ مَعَ أعْدائِكَ، وَجَمَعْتَ بَيْني وَ بَيْنَ أهْلِ بَلائِكَ، وَفَرَّقْتَ بَيْني وَبَيْنَ أحِبّائِكَ وَأوْليائِكَ، فَهَبْني يا إلـهي وَسَيِّدِي وَمَوْلايَ وَرَبّي صَبَرْتُ عَلى عَذابِكَ، فَكَيْفَ اَصْبِرُ عَلى فِراقِكَ، وَهَبْني صَبَرْتُ عَلى حَرِّ نارِكَ، فَكَيْفَ اَصْبِرُ عَنِ النَّظَرِ إلى كَرامَتِكَ ، أمْ كَيْفَ أسْكُنُ فِي النّارِ وَ رَجائي عَفْوُكَ

O' my God, my Lord, my King, and my Master, which of these matters shall I complain to Thee and for which of them shall I bewail and weep? shall I bewail for the pains and agonies of the punishment and their intensity, or for the length of sufferings and their duration? Therefore my Lord, if Thou will subject me to the penalties of hell along with Thy enemies, and cast me with those who merited Thy punishment, and if Thou will tear me apart from Thy beloved ones and those who will be near to Thee, then my God, my Lord and my Master, though I may patiently bear Thy punishment, how can I calmly accept being kept away from Thee? and though I may patiently endure the scorching heat of Thy fire, yet how can I be denied to look upon Thy glory? or how can I remain in the fire while I my hopes are of Thy forgiveness?

فَبِعِزَّتِكَ يا سَيِّدي وَمَوْلايَ اُقْسِمُ صادِقاً لَئِنْ تَرَكْتَني ناطِقاً لاَِضِجَّنَّ إلَيْكَ بَيْنَ أهْلِها ضَجيجَ الآمِلينَ، وَلأصْرُخَنَّ إلَيْكَ صُراخَ الْمَسْتَصْرِخينَ، وَلأبْكِيَنَّ عَلَيْكَ بُكاءَ الْفاقِدينَ، وَلاَُنادِيَنَّكَ اَيْنَ كُنْتَ يا وَلِيَّ الْمُؤْمِنينَ، يا غايَةَ آمالِ الْعارِفينَ، يا غِياثَ الْمُسْتَغيثينَ، يا حَبيبَ قُلُوبِ الصّادِقينَ، وَ يا اِلهَ الْعالَمينَ

O' my Master and Lord, Therefor, by Thy greatness do I truly swear, that if Thou wilt leave me with the power of speech , then I shall cry out amongst its inmates, bewailingly unto Thee the wail of those who have faith in Thy kindness and compassion, And I shall lament for Thee longingly, the lamentation of those who are bereaved, and I shall keep on calling unto Thee: Where art Thou O' Friend of the faithful? O' Thou who is the last hope and resort of those who acknowledge Thee, O' Thou who art the helper of those seeking help, O' Thou who art dear to the hearts of those who truly believe in Thee, O' Thou who art the Lord of the universe.

أفَتُراكَ سُبْحانَكَ يا إلهي وَ بِحَمْدِكَ تَسْمَعُ فيها صَوْتَ عَبْدٍ مُسْلِمٍ سُجِنَ فيها بِمُخالَفَتِهِ، وَذاقَ طَعْمَ عَذابِها بِمَعْصِيَتِهِ، وَحُبِسَ بَيْنَ اَطْباقِها بِجُرْمِهِ وَجَريرَتِهِ، وَهُوَ يَضِجُّ إلَيْكَ ضَجيجَ مُؤَمِّل لِرَحْمَتِكَ، وَيُناديكَ بِلِسانِ أهْلِ تَوْحيدِكَ، وَيَتَوَسَّلُ إلَيْكَ بِرُبُوبِيَّتِكَ، يا مَوْلايَ فَكَيْفَ يَبْقى فِي الْعَذابِ وهُوَ يَرْجُو ما سَلَفَ مِنْ حِلْمِكَ، أَمْ كَيْفَ تُؤْلِمُهُ النّارُ وَهُوَ يَأْمُلُ فَضْلَكَ وَرَحْمَتَكَ، اَمْ كَيْفَ يُحْرِقُهُ لَهيبُها وَأنْتَ تَسْمَعُ صَوْتَهُ وَتَرى مَكانَه، اَمْ كَيْفَ يَشْتَمِلُ عَلَيْهِ زَفيرُها وَأنْتَ تَعْلَمُ ضَعْفَهُ، اَمْ كَيْفَ يَتَقَلْقَلُ بَيْنَ اَطْباقِها وَأنْتَ تَعْلَمُ صِدْقَهُ، اَمْ كَيْفَ تَزْجُرُهُ زَبانِيَتُها وَهُوَ يُناديكَ يا رَبَّهُ، اَمْ كَيْفَ يَرْجُو فَضْلَكَ في عِتْقِهِ مِنْها فَتَتْرُكُهُ فيها

My Lord, Glory and praise be to Thee, wouldst Thou accept that the voice of a Muslim servant, incarcerated therein for his disobedience and tasting its punishment, imprisoned within its pits for his crimes and misdeeds, crying out to Thee the utterance of one who has faith in Thy mercy, calling out to Thee in the language of those who believe in Thy Oneness, and seeking to approach Thee by means of Thy Name and Lordship; My Master, then how could he remain in torments when he hopefully relies upon Thy past mercy? and how can the fire cause him pain when he hopes for Thy grace and compassion? and how can its roaring flames char him when Thou hearest his voice and sees his plight? and how can he withstand its roaring flames when Thou knowest his fraility? and how can he be tossed about between its layers when Thou knowest his sincerity? and how can the guards of the fire threaten him when he calls out to Thee: My Lord; and how would Thou abandon him therein when he has faith in Thy grace to set him free?

هَيْهاتَ ما ذلِكَ الظَّنُ بِكَ، وَلاَ الْمَعْرُوفُ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ، وَلا مُشْبِهٌ لِما عامَلْتَ بِهِ الْمُوَحِّدينَ مِنْ بِرِّكَ وَاِحْسانِكَ، فَبِالْيَقينِ اَقْطَعُ لَوْ لا ما حَكَمْتَ بِهِ مِنْ تَعْذيبِ جاحِديكَ، وَقَضَيْتَ بِهِ مِنْ اِخْلادِ مُعانِدِيكَ، لَجَعَلْتَ النّارَ كُلَّها بَرْداً وَسَلاماً، وَما كانَ لأحَد فيها مَقَرّاً وَلا مُقاماً، لكِنَّكَ تَقَدَّسَتْ أسْماؤُكَ اَقْسَمْتَ أنْ تَمْلاََها مِنَ الْكافِرينَ مِنَ الْجِنَّةِ وَالنّاسِ اَجْمَعينَ، وَأنْ تُخَلِّدَ فيهَا الْمُعانِدينَ، وَأنْتَ جَلَّ ثَناؤُكَ قُلْتَ مُبْتَدِئاً، وَتَطَوَّلْتَ بِالإنْعامِ مُتَكَرِّماً، اَفَمَنْ كانَ مُؤْمِناً كَمَنْ كانَ فاسِقاً لا يَسْتَوُونَ

Alas, That is not the concept we hold of Thee, nor has Thy grace such a reputation, nor does it resemble the kindness and generosity by which Thou has treated those who testify to your Oneness; I definitely conclude that had Thou not ordained punishment for those who disbelieved in Thee, and had Thou not decreed Thy enemies to remain in it, Thou wouldst have made all of the fire cool and peaceful, and there would never have been an abode or place for anyone in it; but Holy be Thy Names, Thou hast sworn to fill it with the disbelievers from amongst the jinns and mankind alike, and to place forever Thy enemies therein; and Thou, exalted be Thy praises, has made manifest, out of Thy generosity and kindness, that a believer is not the same as one who is corrupt.

إلهي وَسَيِّدى فَأَسْأَلُكَ بِالْقُدْرَةِ الَّتي قَدَّرْتَها، وَبِالْقَضِيَّةِ الَّتي حَتَمْتَها وَحَكَمْتَها، وَغَلَبْتَ مَنْ عَلَيْهِ اَجْرَيْتَها، أنْ تَهَبَ لي في هذِهِ اللَّيْلَةِ وَفي هذِهِ السّاعَةِ كُلَّ جُرْم اَجْرَمْتُهُ، وَ كُلَّ ذَنْب اَذْنَبْتُهُ، وَ كُلَّ قَبِيح أسْرَرْتُهُ، وَكُلَّ جَهْل عَمِلْتُهُ، كَتَمْتُهُ أوْ اَعْلَنْتُهُ، أخْفَيْتُهُ أوْ اَظْهَرْتُهُ، وَكُلَّ سَيِّئَة أمَرْتَ بِاِثْباتِهَا الْكِرامَ الْكاتِبينَ الَّذينَ وَكَّلْتَهُمْ بِحِفْظِ ما يَكُونُ مِنّي، وَجَعَلْتَهُمْ شُهُوداً عَلَيَّ مَعَ جَوارِحي، وَكُنْتَ أنْتَ الرَّقيبَ عَلَيَّ مِنْ وَرائِهِمْ، وَالشّاهِدَ لِما خَفِيَ عَنْهُمْ، وَبِرَحْمَتِكَ اَخْفَيْتَهُ، وَبِفَضْلِكَ سَتَرْتَهُ

My God and My Master, I therefore implore Thee by that power which Thou determines and by the decree which Thou hast finalized and ordained, whereby Thou has prevailed upon those whom Thou hast imposed it, to bestow upon me this night and this very hour the forgiveness for all the transgressions that I have been guilty of, for all the sins that I have committed, for all the loathsome acts that I have kept secret and for all the evils done by me, secretly or openly, in concealment or outwardly, and for every one of my evil actions that Thou has ordered the two noble scribes to affirm, whom Thou hast appointed to record all my actions, and to be witnesses over me along with the limbs of my body, while Thou is observant of me behind them, and is witness to those acts concealed from them, Which Thou in Thy mercy hast kept concealed, and through Thy kindness hidden away;

وَأنْ تُوَفِّرَ حَظّي مِنْ كُلِّ خَيْر اَنْزَلْتَهُ أوْ اِحْسان فَضَّلْتَهُ، أوْ بِرٍّ نَشَرْتَهُ، أوْ رِزْق بَسَطْتَهُ، أوْ ذَنْب تَغْفِرُهُ، أوْ خَطَأ تَسْتُرُهُ، يا رَبِّ يا رَبِّ يا رَبِّ يا اِلهي وَسَيِّدي وَمَوْلايَ وَمالِكَ رِقّي، يا مَنْ بِيَدِهِ ناصِيَتي، يا عَليماً بِضُرّي وَمَسْكَنَتي، يا خَبيراً بِفَقْري وَفاقَتي، يا رَبِّ يا رَبِّ يا رَبِّ، أَسْأَلُكَ بِحَقِّكَ وَقُدْسِكَ، وَاَعْظَمِ صِفاتِكَ وَاَسْمائِكَ، أنْ تَجْعَلَ اَوْقاتي مِنَ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهارِ بِذِكْرِكَ مَعْمُورَةً، وَبِخِدْمَتِكَ مَوْصُولَةً، وَاَعْمالي عِنْدَكَ مَقْبُولَةً، حَتّى تَكُونَ أعْمالي وَأوْرادي كُلُّها وِرْداً واحِداً، وَحالي في خِدْمَتِكَ سَرْمَداً

and I pray to Thee to make my share plentiful in all the bounty that Thou does bestow; in all the favors that Thou does grant; and in all the blessings that Thou does allow to be known everywhere; and in all the sustenance and livelihood that Thou does expand; and all the sins that Thou does forgive; and all the wrongs that Thou does hide; O' my Lord, O' my Lord, O' my Lord, O' my God, my Lord, my King, and Master of my freedom, O' Thou who holds my destiny and who is aware of my suffering and poverty; O' Thou who knows my destitution and starvation, O' Lord, O' Lord, O' Lord, I beseech Thee by Thy Truth and Thy Sacredness, by Thy Supremely High Attributes and Names, to cause me to utilize my time, day and night, in Thy remembrance, by engaging myself in serving Thee and to let my deeds be such as to be acceptable to Thee, so much so that all my actions and offerings may be transformed into one continuous and sustained effort and my life may take the form of constant and perpetual service to Thee.

يا سَيِّدي يا مَنْ عَلَيْهِ مُعَوَّلي، يا مَنْ اِلَيْهِ شَكَوْتُ أحْوالي، يا رَبِّ يا رَبِّ يا رَبِّ، قَوِّ عَلى خِدْمَتِكَ جَوارِحي، وَاشْدُدْ عَلَى الْعَزيمَةِ جَوانِحي، وَهَبْ لِيَ الْجِدَّ في خَشْيَتِكَ، وَالدَّوامَ فِي الاِْتِّصالِ بِخِدْمَتِكَ، حَتّى أسْرَحَ إلَيْكَ في مَيادينِ السّابِقينَ، وَاُسْرِعَ إلَيْكَ فِي الْبارِزينَ، وَاَشْتاقَ إلى قُرْبِكَ فِي الْمُشْتاقينَ، وَاَدْنُوَ مِنْكَ دُنُوَّ الْمخْلِصينَ، وَاَخافَكَ مَخافَةَ الْمُوقِنينَ، وَاَجْتَمِعَ في جِوارِكَ مَعَ الْمُؤْمِنينَ

O' my Master, O' Thou upon Whom I rely, O' Thou unto Whom I express my distress; O' my Lord, my Lord, my Lord, strengthen my limbs for Thy service, and sustain the strength of my hands to persevere in Thy service, and bestow upon me the eagerness to fear Thee, and constantly to serve Thee; so that I may lead myself towards Thee in the field with the vanguards who are in the fore rank, and so that I may be swift towards Thee among those who hasten towards Thee; and so that I may urge eagerly to be near Thee and draw myself towards Thee, like they who sincerely draw themselves towards Thee; and so that I may fear Thee like the fear of those who believe firmly in Thee; and thus I may join the congregation of the faithful, congregated for refuge near Thee.

اَللّهُمَّ وَمَنْ اَرادَني بِسُوء فَاَرِدْهُ، وَمَنْ كادَني فَكِدْهُ، وَاجْعَلْني مِنْ أحْسَنِ عَبيدِكَ نَصيباً عِنْدَكَ، وَاَقْرَبِهِمْ مَنْزِلَةً مِنْكَ، وَاَخَصِّهِمْ زُلْفَةً لَدَيْكَ، فَاِنَّهُ لا يُنالُ ذلِكَ إلاّ بِفَضْلِكَ، وَجُدْ لي بِجُودِكَ، وَاعْطِفْ عَلَيَّ بِمَجْدِكَ، وَاحْفَظْني بِرَحْمَتِكَ، وَاجْعَلْ لِساني بِذِكْرِكَ لَهِجَاً، وَقَلْبي بِحُبِّكَ مُتَيَّماً، وَمُنَّ عَلَيَّ بِحُسْنِ اِجابَتِكَ، وَاَقِلْني عَثْرَتي، وَاغْفِرْ زَلَّتي

O' Allah! Whosoever intends ill against me, let ill befall on him; and frustrate him who plots against me; and assign for me a place in Thy presence with the best of Thy servants, and with the nearest of them to Thee, for verily that position cannot be attained except through Thy Grace; and treat me with Thy Benevolence, and through Thy Greatness extend Thy Benevolence towards me; and through Thy Mercy protect me and cause my tongue to accentuate Thy remembrance, and cause my heart to be filled with Thy Love; and be liberal to me by Thy Gracious response; and cause my evils to appear fewer and forgive me my errors.

فَاِنَّكَ قَضَيْتَ عَلى عِبادِكَ بِعِبادَتِكَ، وَاَمَرْتَهُمْ بِدُعائِكَ، وَضَمِنْتَ لَهُمُ الإجابَةَ، فَاِلَيْكَ يا رَبِّ نَصَبْتُ وَجْهي، وَاِلَيْكَ يا رَبِّ مَدَدْتُ يَدي، فَبِعِزَّتِكَ اسْتَجِبْ لي دُعائي، وَ بَلِّغْني مُنايَ، وَلا تَقْطَعْ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ رَجائي، وَاكْفِني شَرَّ الْجِنِّ وَالإنْسِ مِنْ اَعْدائي

for verily, Thou hast ordained for Thy servants to worship Thee, and bidden them to supplicate unto Thee and hast assured them of Thy response; so my Lord, I turn my face earnestly towards Thee, and towards Thee I have stretched forth my hands; therefore, by Thy Honor, respond to my supplication, and let me attain my wishes, and prevent not my hopes from Thy bounty, and protect me from the evils of all enemies, from among the jinns and mankind.

يا سَريعَ الرِّضا، اِغْفِرْ لِمَنْ لا يَمْلِكُ إلاّ الدُّعاءَ، فَاِنَّكَ فَعّالٌ لِما تَشاءُ، يا مَنِ اسْمُهُ دَواءٌ وَ ذِكْرُهُ شِفاءٌ وَ طاعَتُهُ غِنىً، اِرْحَمْ مَنْ رَأْسُ مالِهِ الرَّجاءُ، وَ سِلاحُهُ الْبُكاءُ، يا سابِـغَ النِّعَمِ، يا دافِعَ النِّقَمِ، يا نُورَ الْمُسْتَوْحِشينَ فِي الظُّلَمِ، يا عالِماً لا يُعَلَّمُ، صَلِّ عَلى مُحَمَّد وَآلِ مُحَمَّد، وَافْعَلْ بي ما أنْتَ اَهْلُهُ، وَصَلَّى اللهُ عَلى رَسُولِهِ وَالأَئِمَّةِ الْمَيامينَ مِنْ آلِهِ، وَسَلَّمَ تَسْليماً كَثيراً

O' Thou Who is readily pleased, forgive one who owns nothing but supplication to Thee, for Thou does what Thou wills; O' Thou Whose Name is a remedy; and Whose remembrance is a cure; and obedience to Whom is wealth; have mercy on one whose only asset is hope; and whose only armor is lamentation; O' Thou Who perfects all bounties, and Who wards off all misfortunes; O' Light Who illuminates those who are in darkness; O' knower of all things Who knows without attaining learning; Bless Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad, and do unto me in accordance with that which befitteth Thee, and deal with me not in accordance to my worth; and May the Blessings of Allah be bestowed upon His Messenger and the Rightful Imams from his Descendants, and His Peace be upon them plentifully.

The Iraqi Parliament Election

The next election will be at the end of the April 2014 for the end of the worst parliament in the world and the bloodiest democracy. 

Since the US invasion in 2003 until now Iraq continue to suffer from corruptions, lack of security and lack of real national leaders to rebuild Iraq.  Every single party in Iraq is corrupt and work for its own members and leaders.   There is no single party representing the Iraqis as people and Iraq as country.  There are Sunni, Shite, Kurd and other ethnic or minorities based parties.  Even in their agenda these parties got no clear vision of how they are going to build the economy, the services, the educations, and other important areas for the civilians’ life.  Their agenda mainly related to mobilising voters to votes for them according to their ethnic or religious doctrine.  For example the Shite parties got no voters for them in the Sunni areas and vice versa and similar issues about Kurd and others.  This is so clear from the agenda and the media belong to each one of these parties. 

The aim of each one is not to serve the country and its national interests but to do anything to serve their limited interests.  They will do anything to crush their oppositions even killing or all the kind of accusations and blames.  There is no one can bear the responsibility even when he or she are doing mistakes and wrongs.  Not only that but nepotism and attributes exist everywhere in the joints of the state.   

The real problem for the citizens who will go to vote is that there is no alternative to these rotten parties and politicians.  Worse than this is the outside interference which is based on the same issues of ethnic and religious or national basis.  Many regional countries got interests in Iraq that they do not want to lose it.   However at least there is an election better than nothing but this time the people are looking for the change of the faces both in the government and the parliament.  Is that going to happen; let us watch it in the next few days?!
