the Supplication of imam sajjad 

25) His Supplication (A.S) for his Parents (upon the Two of them be peace)

O ALLAH bless MUHAMMAD,Thy slave and Thy messenger,and his Household,the pure,and single them out for
the best of Thy blessings,Thy mercy, Thy benedictions,and Thy peace! And single out my parents,O ALLAH, for
honor with Thee and blessings from Thee, O Most Merciful of the merciful! O ALLAH,bless MUHAMMAD and his
Household, teach me through inspiration knowledge of everything incumbent upon me toward them, and gather
within me knowledge of all that completely!Then make me act in accordance with what Thou hast inspired me
and give me the success to put into practice the knowledge Thou hast shown to me,lest I fail to act according to
something Thou hast taught me or my limbs feel too heavy to perform that with which Thou hast inspired me! O
ALLAH,bless MUHAMMAD and his Household,as Thou hast ennobled us through him,and bless MUHAMMAD and
his Household,as Thou hast made incumbent upon us rights toward the creatures because of him! fill me with
awe of my parents,the awe one has toward a tyrannical sovereign,and let me be devoted to them,with the
devotion of a compassionate mother! Make my obedience and devotion to them more gladdening to my eyes
than sleep to the drowsy and more refreshing to my breast than drink to the thirsty, so that I may prefer their
inclination to my inclination, set their satisfaction before my satisfaction, make much of their devotion to me
though it be little,and make little of my devotion to them though it be great.
lower before them my voice, make agreeable to them my words, make mild before them my temper, make
tender toward them my heart,and turn me into their kind companion,their loving friend! thank them for my
upbringing, reward them for honoring me,and guard them as they guarded me in my infancy! O ALLAH,and
whatever harm has touched them from me, detested thing has reached them from me, or right of theirs which
has been neglected by me, allow it to alleviate their sins, raise them in their degrees,and add to their good
deeds!O He who changes evil deeds into manifold good deeds! O ALLAH,whatever word through which they
have transgressed against me, act through which they have been immoderate with me, right of mine which they
have left neglected, or obligation toward me in which they have fallen short, I grant it to them and bestow it
upon them,and I beseech Thee to remove from them its ill consequence,for I do not accuse them concerning
myself, find them slow in their devotion toward me, or dislike the way they have attended to my affairs,my Lord!
They have rights against me which are more incumbent precedence in beneficence toward me that is
greater,and kindness toward me that is mightier than that I should settle accounts with justice or repay them
with equivalents.
Where then,my God,would be their long occupation with bringing me up?Where the hardship of their toil in
taking care of me?Where the stinting of themselves to provide me with plenty? What an idea!I can never
discharge their right against me, fulfill my obligations toward them, or accomplish the duty of serving them.
So bless MUHAMMAD and his Household and help me,O Best of those whose help we seek!Give me success,O
Most Guiding of those whom we beseech! Place me not among the people of disrespect to fathers and mothers
on )the day when every soul will be repaid for what it has earned;they shall not be wronged(.
O ALLAH,bless MUHAMMAD,his Household,and his progeny and single out my parents for the best which Thou
hast singled out for the fathers and mothers of Thy faithful servants, O Most Merciful of the merciful! O
ALLAH,let me not forget to remember them after my ritual prayers, at every time throughout my night, and in
each of the hours of my day! O ALLAH,bless MUHAMMAD and his Household, forgive me through my supplication
for my parents, forgive them through their devotion toward me with unfailing forgiveness, be well pleased with
them through my intercession for them with resolute good pleasure,and make them reach through Thy
generosity the abodes of safety! if Thy forgiveness reaches them first,make them my intercessors,and if Thy
forgiveness reaches me first,make me their intercessors, so that we may gather together through Thy
gentleness in the house of Thy generosity and the place of Thy forgiveness and mercy!Verily Thou art Possessor
of abounding bounty and ancient kindness,and Thou art the Most Merciful of the merciful
اللهم صلي علي محمد و آل محمد و عجل فرجهم و العن اعدائهم
