the Supplication of imam sajjad
14) His Supplication (A.S) in Seeking Needs from Allah (exalted is He)
O ultimate object of needs! He through whom requests are attained! O He whose favors are not bought by
prices! O He who does not muddy His gifts by the imposition of obligations! 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 can not be exhausted by demands! O He whose wisdom can not 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
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 in the most likely place and come to his request from the right quarter.
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 exertion has fallen short of it and my stratagems have been cut back before
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 pointing the way,I returned and withdrew from my stumble.
I said:Glory 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
gifts 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.
Thy bounty has comforted me and Thy beneficence has shown 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
