Imam Zein Al-Abideen's supplication in seeking refuge

Date: 24/02/2011 A.D - H

O Allah, I seek refuge in Thee
from the agitation of craving,
the violence of wrath,
the domination of envy,
the frailty of patience,
the lack of contentment,
the surliness of character,
the urgency of passion,
the disposition to vehemence,

following caprice,
opposing guidance,
the sleep of heedlessness,
undertaking the toilsome,
preferring falsehood over truth,
persisting in sin,
underestimating the implications of committing sins in disobedience,
overestimating the worth of acts of obedience ,

vying with the wealthy,
disparaging the poor,
being a bad guardian over those we are responsible of

failing to thank those who have done good to us,

aiding a wrongdoer,
abandoning someone troubled,
wanting what is not rightfully ours,
talking knowledgeably about what we are ignorant of.

We seek refuge in Thee from
harboring dishonesty towards anyone,
being [arrogantly] pleased with our works,
and stretching out our expectations far [beyond reality].

We seek refuge in Thee from
ill-mindedness,
looking down on the small,
Satan gaining mastery over us,
the afflictions of time,
and the oppression of the sovereign.

We seek refuge in Thee from
acting with prodigality
and not having sufficiency.

We seek refuge in Thee from
the gloating of enemies,
indigent need for equals,
living in hardship,
and dying without readiness.

We seek refuge in Thee from
the most dreadful remorse,
the greatest affliction,
the most wretched wretchedness,
the evil end to the journey,
the deprivation of reward,
and the advent of punishment.

O Allah, bless Muhammad and his Household,
and through Thy mercy, grant me refuge from all of that,
and to all the faithful, both men and women!
 O Most Merciful of the merciful!
