Imam Zein Al-Abideen's supplication in seeking asylum with Allah

O Allah,if Thou willest,Thou wilt pardon us through Thy bountyand if Thou willest,Thou wilt chastise us through Thy justice.So make our ways smooth to Thy pardon through Thy kindness,

and grant us sanctuary from Thy chastisement through Thy forbearance, for none of us has the endurance for Thy justice and none of us can reach deliverance without Thy pardon!O Richest of the rich!Here we are, Thy servants, before Thee.I am the neediest of the needy toward Thee,so redress our neediness through Thy plenty

and cut us not off from our hopes through Thy withholding,

lest Thou makest wretched him who seeks felicity through Thee

and deprivest him who seeks help from Thy bounty!Then to whom would we return after Thee?Where would we go from Thy gate?Glory be to Thee!We are the distressed,

the response to whom Thou hast made incumbent,

the people from whomThou hast promised to remove the evilThat thing most resembling Thy will and that affair most worthy for Thee in Thy mightiness is showing mercy to he who asks Thee for mercy and helping he who seeks help from Thee.So show mercy upon our pleading with Thee

and free us from need when we seek Thee in desperation!O God,Satan will gloat over us if we follow him in disobeying Thee,

so bless Muhammad and his Household,

and let him not gloat over us after we have renounced him for Thee and beseeched Thee against him!

دُعَائِهِ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ فِي اللَّجَإِ إِلَى اللَّهِ تَعَالَى
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

اللّهُمَّ إن تَشَأْ تعفُ عَنّا فَبِفضْلِكَ، وَانْ تَشَأْ تُعَذِّبْنا فَبَعدْلِكَ.

فَسَهِّلْ لَنَا عَفْوَكَ بِمنِّكَ، وَأَجِرْنَا مِنْ عَذَابِكَ بِتَجاوُزكَ؛ فَإنَّهُ لاَطاقَةَ لَنَا بَعدِكَ، وَلاَنجاةَ لاحَد دُوْنَ عَفْوِكَ.

يا غَنِيَّ الاغْنياء، هَا نَحَنُ عِبادُكَ، وَأَنَا أَفْقَراء إليْكَ فَأجْبُرْ فاقَتَنا بِوُسْعِكَ، ولاتَقْطَعَ رَجَاء نابِمَنْعِكَ فَتَكُوْنَ قد أَشْقَيْتَ مَنِ اسْتَسْعَدَ بِكَ، وَجَرَمْتَ مَنِ آسْتَرْفَدَ فَضْلَكَ.

فَإلى مَنْ حيْنئذ مُنْقَلَبُنَا عَنْكَ، وإلى أيْنَ مَذهَبُنَا عن بَابِكَ؟

سُبْحَنَكَ إنَحْنُ المضْطُّرون الذّينَ أَوْجَبْتَ إجابَتَهُمْ، وَأهْلُ السُّوْء الذّيْنَ وَعَدْتَ الْكَشْفَ عَنْهُمْ.

وَأَشْبَـهُ الاَشْياءِ بِمَشِيَّتِـكَ، وَأَوْلَى الامُورِ بِكَ فِيْ عَظَمَتِكَ رَحْمَةُ مَنِ اسْتَرْحَمَكَ، وَغَوْثُ مَنِ اسْتَغَاثَ بِكَ، فَارْحَمْ تَضَرُّعَنَا إلَيْكَ، وَأَغْنِنَا إذْ طَرَحْنَـا أَنْفُسَنَا بَيْنَ يَـدَيْكَ. أللَّهُمَّ إنَّ الشَّيْطَانَ قَدْ شمِتَ بِنَا إذْ شَايَعْنَاهُ عَلَى مَعْصِيَتِكَ،

فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ وَلا تُشْمِتْهُ بِنَا بَعْدَ تَرْكِنَا إيَّاهُ لَكَ، وَرَغْبَتِنَا عَنْهُ إلَيْكَ.
