The Supplication for Thursday

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


Praise belongs to God,
          who has taken away the shadowy night by His power
                    and brought the sight-giving day through His mercy.
          He has clothed me in its brightness
                    and given me its favour.


O God,
          just as Thou hast spared me for this day,
          so also spare me for its likes,
          bless the prophet Muhammad and his Household,
          torment me not in it and in other nights and days
                    by allowing me to commit unlawful acts
                    and to clothe myself in sins;
          provide me with its good,
                    the good of all within it,
                    and the good of everything after it;
          and turn away from me its evil,
                    the evil of all within it,
                    and the evil of everything after it!


O God,
          by the protective compact of Islam,
                    I seek mediation with Thee!
          By the inviolability of the Qur'an,
                    I rely upon Thee!
          By Muhammad the chosen (God bless him and his Household)
                    I seek intercession with Thee!
          So recognize my protective compact
                    by which I hope my need will be granted,
          O Most Merciful of the merciful!


O God,
          decree for me on Thursday five things
                    which none embraces but Thy generosity
                    and none supports but Thy favours:
          health through which I may have the strength to obey Thee,
          worship by which I may deserve Thy plentiful reward,
          plenty in my state through lawful provision,
          and that Thou
                    makest me secure in the places of fear
                              through Thy security,
                    and placest me in Thy fortress
                              against the striking of worries and sorrows!
          Bless Muhammad and his Household,
                    and make my seeking his mediation as an intercessor
                    give profit on the Day of Resurrection!
          Surely Thou art the Most Merciful of the merciful!299
