Imam Zein Al-Abideen's supplication when sick

O Allah, to Thee belongs praise

for the good health of my body

which lets me move about,

and to Thee belongs praise,

for the ailments

which Thou causest to arise in my flesh!

For I know not, my God,

which of the two states deserves more my thanking to Thee

and which of the two times is more worthy for my praise of Thee:

the time of health,

within which Thou makest me delight

in the agreeable things of Thy provision,

through which Thou givest me the joy to seek

the means to Thy good pleasure and bounty,

and by which Thou strengthenest me

for the acts of obedience

which Thou hast given me success to accomplish;

or the time of illness

through which Thou puttest me to the test

and bestowest upon me favors:

lightening of the offenses

that weigh down my back,

purification of the evil deeds

into which I have plunged,

incitement to reach

for repentance,

reminder of the erasure of misdeeds

through ancient favor;

and, through all that, what the two writers write for me:

blameless acts,

which no heart had thought,

no tongue had uttered,

and no limb had undertaken,

rather, as Thy bestowal of bounty upon me

and the beneficence of Thy benefaction toward me

O Allah,

bless Muhammad and his Household,

make me love

what Thou hast approved for me,

make easy for me

what Thou hast sent down upon me,

purify me of the defilement

of what I have sent ahead,

erase the evil

of what I have done beforehand,

let me find the sweetness

of well-being,

let me taste the coolness

of safety,

and appoint for me

a way out from my illness to Thy pardon,

transformation of my infirmity into Thy forbearance,

escape from my distress to Thy refreshment,

and safety from this hardship in Thy relief!

Thou art gratuitously bountiful in beneficence,

ever gracious in kindness,

the Generous, the Giver,

Possessor of majesty and munificence!

Translation to Arabic

مِنْ دُعَائِهِ عَلَيْهِ السَّلَامُ إِذَا مَرِضَ أَوْ نَزَلَ بِهِ كَرْبٌ أَوْ بَلِيَّةٌ
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

أللَّهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ عَلَى مَا لَمْ أَزَلْ أَتَصَرَّفُ فِيهِ مِنْ سَلاَمَةِ بَدَنِي، وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ عَلَى مَا أَحْدَثْتَ بِيْ مِنْ عِلَّة فِي جَسَـدِي.

فَمَا أَدْرِي يَـا إلهِي، أَيُّ الْحَالَيْنِ أَحَقُّ بِالشُّكْرِ لَكَ، وَأَيُّ الْوَقْتَيْنِ أوْلَى بِالْحَمْدِ لَكَ، أَوَقْتُ الصِّحَةِ الَّتِي هَنَّـأْتَنِي فِيهَا طَيِّبَاتِ رِزْقِكَ، وَنَشَّطْتَنِي بِهَا لابْتِغاءِ مَرْضَاتِكَ وَفَضْلِكَ، وَقَوَّيْتَنِي مَعَهَا عَلَى مَـا وَفَّقْتَنِي لَهُ مِنْ طَـاعَتِـكَ أَمْ وَقْتُ الْعِلَّةِ الَّتِي مَحَّصْتَنِي بِهَا، وَالنِّعَمِ الَّتِي أَتْحَفْتَنِي بِهَا تَخْفِيفاً لِمَا ثَقُلَ بِهِ عَلَى ظَهري مِنَ الْخَطِيئاتِ وَتَطْهيراً لِمَا انْغَمَسْتُ فيهِ مِنَ السَّيِّئاتِ، وَتَنْبِيهاً لِتَنَاوُلِ التَّوْبَةِ، وَتَذْكِيراً لِمَحْوِ الْحَوْبَةِ بِقَدِيمِ النِّعْمَةِ، وَفِي خِلاَلِ ذَلِكَ مَا كَتَبَ لِيَ الْكَاتِبَانِ مِنْ زَكِيِّ الاعْمَالِ، مَا لا قَلْبٌ فَكَّرَ فِيهِ، وَلا لِسَانٌ نَطَقَ بِهِ وَلاَ جَارِحَةٌ تَكَلَّفَتْهُ بَلْ إفْضَالاً مِنْكَ عَلَيَّ، وَإحْسَاناً مِنْ صَنِيعِـكَ إلَيَّ.

أللَّهُمَّ فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّـد وَآلِـهِ وَحَبِّبْ إلَيّ مَـا رَضِيتَ لِي، وَيَسِّرْ لِي مَا أَحْلَلْتَ بِيْ، وَطَهِّرْنِي مِنْ دَنَسِ مَا أَسْلَفْتُ، وَامْحُ عَنِّي شَرَّ مَا قَـدَّمْتُ، وَأَوْجِدْنِي حَلاَوَةَ الْعَافِيَةِ، وَأَذِقْنِي بَرْدَ السَّلاَمَةِ وَاجْعَلْ مَخْرَجِي عَنْ عِلَّتِي إلَى عَفْوِكَ، وَمُتَحَوَّلِي عَنْ صَرْعَتِي إلَى تَجَاوُزِكَ، وَخَلاصِي مِنْ كَرْبِي إلَى رَوْحِكَ، وَسَلاَمَتِي مِنْ هَذِهِ الشِّدَّةِ إلَى فَرَجِكَ، إنَّكَ الْمُتَفَضِّلُ بِالاِحْسَانِ، الْمُتَطَوِّلُ بِالامْتِنَانِ، الْوَهَّابُ الْكَرِيمُ، ذُوالْجَلاَلِ وَالاكْرَامِ.
