The Supplication for Tuesday

In the Name of God, the All-merciful,
the All-compassionate


Praise belongs to God
          - and praise is His right, since He deserves it -
          abundant praise!


I seek refuge in Him from the evil of my soul,
                    for surely the soul commands to evil
                    except as my Lord has mercy.292


          I seek refuge in Him from the evil of Satan
                    who adds sins to my sin.


          I seek protection with Him from every wicked tyrant,
                    unjust sovereign,
                    and conquering enemy.


O God,
          place me among Thy troops,
                    for Thy troops - they are the victors,293
          place me in Thy party,
                    for Thy party - they are the ones who prosper,294
          and place me among Thy friends,
                    for Thy friends - no fear shall be upon them,
                    nor shall they sorrow.295


O God,
          set right for me my religion,
                    for it is the preserving tie of my affair,
          set right for me my hereafter,
                    for it is the abode of my permanent lodging
                    and to it I flee from the neighbourhood of the vile!
          Make life an increase for me in every good
                    and death an ease for me from every evil!


O God, bless
          Muhammad, the Seal of the Prophets
                    and the completion of the number of the envoys,
          his Household, the good, the pure,
                    and his Companions, the distinguished,
          and give me on the Tuesday three things:


                    no sin for me unless Thou forgivest it,
                    no grief unless Thou takest it away,
                    and no enemy unless Thou repellest him!
          By means of 'in the name of "God" ', the best of the Names,
                              in the name of God, Lord of earth and heaven,


                    I seek to repulse every hateful thing,
                              the first of which is His anger,
                    and I seek to attract every loveable thing,
                              the first of which is His good pleasure!


                    So seal me with forgiveness from Thee,
                              O Patron of beneficence!
