Imam Zein Al-Abideen's supplication in seeking needs from Allah

O Allah,

O ultimate object of needs!

O He through Whom requests are attained!

O He Whose favors are not bought by prices!

O He Who does not blur His blessings by asking for gratitude!

O He along with Whom nothing is needed and without Whom nothing can be done!

O He toward Whom desire is ever directed and never turned away!

O He Whose treasuries cannot be exhausted by demands!

O He Whose wisdom cannot be altered by any means!

O He from Whom the needs of the needy are never cut off!

O He Who is not distressed by the supplications of the supplicators!

Thou hast lauded Thyself for having no need for Thy creatures,

and it suits Thee to have no need for them,

and Thou hast attributed to them poverty,

and it suits them to be poor toward Thee.

So, he who strives to remedy his lack through what is with Thee,

and wishes to turn poverty away from himself through Thee,

has sought his need and request in the right place

But he who turns in his need toward one of Thy creatures,

or assigns the cause of its being granted to other than Thee,

has exposed himself to deprivation

and deserves to miss Thy beneficence.

O Allah,

I have a need of Thee:

My efforts have fallen short of it,

and my stratagems have been cut back before reaching it.

My soul induced me to present it to him who presents his needs to Thee and can do nothing without Thee in his requests, but this is one of the slips of the offenders, one of the stumbles of the sinners!

Then, through Thy reminding me, I was aroused from my heedlessness, through Thy giving success, I stood up from my slip,

and through Thy guidance, I returned and withdrew from my stumble.

I said:

Glory be to my Lord!

How can the needy ask from the needy?

How can the destitute beseech the destitute?

So I went straight to Thee, my God, in beseeching,

and I sent Thee my hope with trust in Thee.

I came to know that

the many I request from Thee are few before Thy wealth,

the weighty I ask from Thee is vile before Thy plenty;

Thy generosity is not constrained by anyone's asking,

Thy hand is higher in bestowing graces than every hand!

O Allah,

so bless Muhammad and his Household,

take me through Thy generosity

to Thy gratuitous bounty

and take me not through Thy justice

to what I deserve!

I am not the first beseecher to beseech Thee

and Thou bestowed upon him,

while he deserved withholding;

nor am I the first to ask from Thee

and Thou wast bounteous toward him,

while he merited deprivation.

O Allah,

bless Muhammad and his Household,

respond to my supplication,

come near my call,

have mercy on my pleading,

listen to my voice,

cut not short my hope for Thee,

sever not my thread to Thee,

turn not my face in this my need,

and other needs,

away from Thee,

attend for my sake to

the fulfillment of my request,

the granting of my need,

and the attainment of what I have asked,

before I leave this place

through Thy making easy for me the difficult

and Thy excellent ordainment for me in all affairs!

Bless Muhammad and his Household

with a permanent, ever-growing blessing,

whose perpetuity has no cutting off

and whose term knows no limit,

and make that a help to me

and a cause for the granting of my request!

Thou art Boundless, Generous!

And of my needs, My Lord, are such and such.

"HERE YOU SHOULD STATE YOUR NEEDS,

THEN PROSTRATE YOURSELF,

AND SAY IN YOUR PROSTRATION"

Thy bounty has comforted me,

and Thy beneficence has shown me the way,

So I ask Thee by Thee

and by Muhammad and his Household

(Thy blessings be upon them)

that Thou sendest me not back in disappointment!

من دُعَائِهِ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ فِي طَلَبِ الْحَوَائِجِ إِلَى اللَّهِ تَعَالَى
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

أللَّهُمَّ يَا مُنْتَهَى مَطْلَبِ الْحَاجَاتِ، وَيَا مَنْ عِنْدَه نَيْلُ الطَّلِبَاتِ، وَيَا مَنْ لا يَبِيْعُ نِعَمَهُ بالاثْمَانِ، وَيَا مَنْ لا يُكَدِّرُ عَطَايَاهُ بِالامْتِنَانِ، وَيَا مَنْ يُسْتَغْنَى بِهِ وَلاَ يُسْتَغْنَى عَنْهُ، وَيَا مَنْ يُرْغَبُ إلَيْهِ وَلا يُرْغَبُ عَنْهُ.

وَيَا مَنْ لا تُفنى خَزَآئِنَهُ الْمَسَائِلُ، وَيَا مَنْ لاَ تُبَدِّلُ حِكْمَتَهُ الْوَسَائِلُ.

وَيَا مَنْ لاَ تَنْقَطِعُ عَنْهُ حَوَائِجُ الْمُحْتَاجِينَ وَيَا مَنْ لاَ يُعَنِّيهِ دُعَاءُ الدَّاعِينَ تَمَدَّحْتَ بِالْغَنَاءِ عَنْ خَلْقِكَ وَأَنْتَ أَهْلُ الْغِنَى عَنْهُمْ، وَنَسَبْتَهُمْ إلَى الفَقْرِ وَهُمْ أَهْلُ الْفَقْرِ إلَيْكَ.

فَمَنْ حَاوَلَ سَدَّ خَلَّتِهِ مِنْ عِنْدِكَ وَرَامَ صَرْفَ الْفَقْر عَنْ نَفْسِهِ بِكَ فَقَدْ طَلَبَ حَاجَتَهُ فِي مَظَانِّها وَأَتَى طَلِبَتَهُ مِنْ وَجْهِهَا وَمَنْ تَوَجَّهَ بِحَاجَتِهِ إلَى أَحَد مِنْ خَلْقِكَ أَوْ جَعَلَهُ سَبَبَ نُجْحِهَا دُونَكَ فَقَدْ تَعَرَّضَ لِلْحِرْمَانِ، وَاسْتَحَقَّ مِنْ عِنْدِكَ فَوْتَ الاِحْسَانِ.

أللَّهُمَّ وَلِي إلَيْكَ حَاجَةٌ قَـدْ قَصَّرَ عَنْهَـا جُهْدِي، وَتَقَطَّعَتْ دُونَهَا حِيَلِي، وَسَوَّلَتْ لِيْ نَفْسِي رَفْعَهَا إلَى مَنْ يَرْفَعُ حَوَائِجَهُ إلَيْكَ، وَلاَ يَسْتَغْنِي فِي طَلِبَاتِهِ عَنْكَ، وَهِيَ زَلَّةٌ مِنْ زَلَلِ الْخَاطِئِينَ، وَعَثْرَةٌ مِنْ عَثَراتِ الْمُذْنِبِينَ، ثُمَّ انْتَبَهْتُ بِتَذْكِيرِكَ لِي مِنْ غَفْلَتِي وَنَهَضْتُ بِتَوْفِيقِكَ مِنْ زَلَّتِي، وَنَكَصْتُ بِتَسْـدِيدِكَ عَنْ عَثْـرَتِي وَقُلْتُ: سُبْحَانَ رَبّي كَيْفَ يَسْأَلُ مُحْتَاجٌ مُحْتَاجـاً، وَأَنَّى يَرْغَبُ مُعْدِمٌ إلَى مُعْدِم؟!

فَقَصَدْتُكَ يا إلهِي بِالرَّغْبَةِ، وَأَوْفَدْتُ عَلَيْكَ رَجَائِي بِالثِّقَةِ بِكَ، وَعَلِمْتُ أَنَّ كَثِيرَ مَا أَسْأَلُكَ يَسِيرٌ فِي وُجْدِكَ، وَأَنَّ خَطِيرَ مَا أَسْتَوْهِبُكَ حَقِيرٌ فِيْ وُسْعِكَ، وَأَنَّ كَرَمَكَ لاَ يَضِيقُ عَنْ سُؤَال أحَد، وَأَنَّ يَدَكَ بِالْعَطايا أَعْلَى مِنْ كُلِّ يَد.

أللَهُمَّ فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ وَاحْمِلْنِي بِكَرَمِكَ عَلَى التَّفَضُّلِ، وَلاَ تَحْمِلْنِي بِعَدْلِكَ عَلَى الاسْتِحْقَاقِ، فَما أَنَا بِأَوَّلِ رَاغِبِ رَغِبَ إلَيْكَ فَأَعْطَيْتَهُ وَهُوَ يَسْتَحِقُّ الْمَنْعَ، وَلاَ بِأَوَّلِ سَائِل سَأَلَكَ فَأَفْضَلْتَ عَلَيْهِ وَهُوَ يَسْتَوْجِبُ الْحِرْمَانَ.

أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ، وَكُنْ لِدُعَائِي مُجِيباً، وَمِنْ نِدائِي قَرِيباً، وَلِتَضَرُّعِي رَاحِماً، وَلِصَوْتِي سَامِعاً وَلاَ تَقْطَعْ رَجَائِي عَنْكَ وَلا تَبُتَّ سَبَبِي مِنْكَ وَلاَ تُوَجِّهْنِي فِي حَاجَتيْ هَذِهِ وَغَيْرِهَا إلى سِوَاكَ وَتَوَلَّنِي بِنُجْحِ طَلِبَتِي، وَقَضاءِ حَاجَتِي، وَنَيْلِ سُؤْلِي قَبْلَ زَوَالِي عَنْ مَوْقِفِي هَذَا بِتَيسِيرِكَ لِيَ الْعَسِيْرَ، وَحُسْنِ تَقْدِيرِكَ لِي فِي جَمِيعِ الاُمُورِ.

وَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ صَلاَةً دَائِمَةً نَامِيَةً لاَ انْقِطَاعَ لاِبَدِهَا، وَلا مُنْتَهَى لاِمَدِهَا، وَاجْعَلْ ذَلِكَ عَوْناً لِيْ وَسَبَباً لِنَجَاحِ طَلِبَتِي إنَّكَ وَاسِعٌ كَرِيْمٌ.

وَمِنْ حَاجَتِي يَا رَبِّ كَذَا وَكَذَا ـ وَتَذْكُرُ حَاجَتَكَ ثمّ تَسْجُـدُ وَتَقُولُ فِي سُجُودِكَ: ـ فَضْلُكَ آنَسَنِي، وَإحْسَانُكَ دَلَّنِي، فَأَسْأَلُكَ بِكَ وَبِمُحَمَّـد وَآلِهِ صَلَواتُكَ عَلَيْهمْ أَنْ لاَ تَرُدَّنِي خَائِباً.
