the Supplication of imam sajjad
44) His Supplication (A.S) when Looked at the New Crescent Moon
O obedient creature, speedy and untiring, frequenter of the mansions of determination, moving about in the
sphere of governance! I have faith in Him who lights up darknesses through thee, illuminates jet-black shadows
by thee, appointed thee one of the signs of His kingdom and one of the marks of His authority, and humbled
thee through increase and decrease, rising and setting, illumination and eclipse.
In all of this thou art obedient to Him,prompt toward His will.
Glory be to Him!How wonderful is what He has arranged in thy situation!How subtle what He has made for thy
task!He has made thee the key to a new month for a new situation.
So I ask ALLAH, my Lord and thy Lord, my Creator and thy Creator, my Determiner and thy Determiner, my
Form-giver and thy Form-giver, that He bless MUHAMMAD and his Household and appoint thee a crescent of
blessings not effaced by days and of purity not defiled by sins; a crescent of security from blights and of safety
from evil deeds; a crescent of auspiciousness containing no misfortune, of prosperity accompanied by no
adversity, of ease not mixed with difficulty, of good unstained by evil;a crescent of security and faith, favor and
good-doing, safety and submission! O ALLAH,bless MUHAMMAD and his Household, place us among the most
satisfied of those over whom the crescent has risen, the purest of those who have looked upon it, the most
fortunate of those who have worshiped Thee under it; give us the success during ]the new month[to repent,
preserve us within it from misdeeds, guard us therein from pursuing disobedience to Thee, allot to us within it
thanksgiving for Thy favor, clothe us during it in the shields of well-being,and complete for us Thy kindness by
perfecting therein obedience to Thee! Surely Thou art All-kind,Praiseworthy.
And bless MUHAMMAD and his Household,the good,the pure
