His Supplication in Acts of Wrongdoing

His Supplication when Hostility was Shown to Him or when he Saw what he did not Like in Wrongdoers89


O He from whom is not concealed
          news of the aggrieved!


O He who has no need to be told about them
          by the witnessing of the witnesses!


O He who whose help is near to the wronged!


O He whose aid is far from the wrongdoers!


Thou knowest, my God,
          how so-and-so, son of so-and-so, has harmed me
                    in that which Thou hast forbidden,
          and how he has violated me
                    in that which Thou hast prohibited,
          showing thereby ingratitude toward Thy favour upon him
                    and delusion concerning what Thou hast denied him.


O God,
          so bless Muhammad and his Household,
          keep my wrongdoing enemy from wronging me through Thy strength,
          blunt his blade toward me through Thy power,
          and assign to him
                    a diversion in that which is close to him
                    and the inability to reach his enemy!


O God,
          bless Muhammad and his Household,
          let the wrongdoer not find it easy to wrong me,
          give me good help against him,
          preserve me from the like of his acts,
          and place me not in the like of his situation!


O God,
          bless Muhammad and his Household,
          and assist me with an immediate assistance
                    that will heal my rage toward him
                    and redeem my fury toward him!


O God,
          bless Muhammad and his Household,
          compensate me for his wronging me with Thy pardon
                    and replace his evil action toward me with Thy mercy,
          for every detested thing less than Thy anger is slight
                    and every disaster next to Thy rancour indifferent!


O God,
          just as Thou hast made me detest being wronged,
          so also protect me from doing wrong!


O God,
          I complain to no one but Thee,
          and I seek help from no ruler other than Thee -
                    how could I?
          So bless Muhammad and his Household,
          join my supplication to response,
                    and unite my complaint with change!


O God,
          tempt me not with despair of Thy just treatment
                    and tempt him not with feeling secure from Thy disapproval,
          lest he persist in wronging me
                    and constrain me in my rights.90
          Let him soon recognize
                    what Thou hast promised the wrongdoers91
          and let me recognize
                    Thy promised response to the distressed!92


O God,
          bless Muhammad and his Household,
          give me success in accepting Thy decrees
                    for me and against me,
          make me pleased with what Thou takest
                    for me and from me,
          guide me to that which is most upright
                    and employ me in that which is safest!


O God,
          if the best for me with Thee lies
                    in delaying the taking to task for my sake
                              of him who has wronged me
                    and in refraining from vengeance toward him
                    until the Day of Decision and
                    the Gathering of Disputants,
          then bless Muhammad and his Household,
          strengthen me from Thee
                    with true intention
                    and lasting patience,


          give me refuge
                    from evil desire
                    and the impatience of the greedy,
          and form in my heart the image of
                    Thy reward
                              which Thou hast stored away for me
                    and the repayment and punishment
                              which Thou has prepared for my disputant!
          Make this a cause of my contentment
                    with what Thou hast decreed
          and my trust
                    in what Thou hast chosen!


          Amen, Lord of the worlds!
          Thou art of bounty abounding
          and Thou art powerful over everything.
