His Supplication when Someone's Death was Announced to him or when he Remembered Death

دُعَاؤُهُ إذا ذَكَرَ الْمَوْتِ

أَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ،
O God, Bless Muhammad and his Household,
وَاكْفِنَا طُـولَ الأمَـلِ، وَقَصِّرْهُ عَنَّا بِصِدْقِ الْعَمَلِ
spare us drawn out expectations and cut them short in us through sincerity of works,
حَتَّى لا نُؤَمِّلَ اسْتِتْمَامَ سَاعَةٍ بَعْدَ سَاعَةٍ
that we may not hope expectantly for completing an hour after an hour,
وَلاَ اسْتِيفَاءَ يَوْمٍ بَعْدَ يَوْمٍ،
closing a day after a day,
وَلاَ اتِّصَالَ نَفَسٍ بِنَفَس،
joining a breath to a breath,
وَلا لُحُـوقَ قَدَمٍ بِقَـدَم.
or overtaking a step with a step!
وَسَلِّمْنَا مِنْ غُرُورِهِ، وَآمَنَّا مِنْ شُـرُوْرِهِ،
Keep us safe from the delusions of expectations, make us secure from their evils,
وَانْصِبِ المَوْتَ بَيْنَ أَيْدِينَا نَصْباً،
set up death before us in display.
وَلاَ تَجْعَلْ ذِكْرَنَا لَهُ غِبّاً،
and let not our remembering of it come and go!
وَاجْعَلْ لَنَا مِنْ صَالِحِ الأعْمَـالِ
Appoint for us from among the righteous works
عَمَلاً نَسْتَبْطِئُ مَعَهُ الْمَصِيرَ إلَيْكَ،
a work through which we will feel the homecoming to Thee as slow
وَنحْـرِصُ لَهُ عَلَى وَشْكِ اللِّحَاقِ بِكَ
and crave a quick joining with Thee,
حَتَّى يَكُونَ الْمَوْتُ مَأنَسَنَا الَّذِي نَأنَسُ بِهِ،
so that death may be our intimate abode with which we are intimate,
وَمَألَفَنَا الَّذِي نَشْتَاقُ إلَيْهِ، وَحَامَّتَنَا الَّتِي نُحِبُّ الدُّنُوَّ مِنْهَا
our familiar place toward which we yearn, and our next of kin whose coming we love!
فَإذَا أَوْرَدْتَهُ عَلَيْنَا، وَأَنْزَلْتَهُ بِنَا
When Thou bringest it to us and sendest it down upon us,
فَأسْعِدْنَا بِهِ زَائِراً، وَآنِسْنَا بِهِ قَادِماً،
make us happy with it as a visitor, comfort us with its arrival,
وَلاَ تُشْقِنَا بِضِيافَتِهِ، وَلا تُخْزِنَا بِزِيارَتِهِ،
make us not wretched through entertaining it, degrade us not through its visit,
وَاجْعَلْهُ بَاباً مِنْ أَبْوَابِ مَغْفِرَتِكَ،
and appoint it one of the gates to Thy forgiveness
وَمِفْتَاحاً مِنْ مَفَاتِيحِ رَحْمَتِكَ.
and the keys to Thy mercy!
أَمِتْنَا مُهْتَدِينَ غَيْرَ ضَالِّينَ
Make us die guided, not astray,
طائِعِينَ غَيْرَ مُسْتَكْرِهِينَ تَائِبينَ غَيْرَ عاصِينَ وَلا مُصِرِّينَ
obedient, not averse, repentant, not disobedient or persisting,
يَا ضَامِنَ جَزَاءِ الْمُحْسِنِينَ،
O He who guarantees the repayment of the good-doers
وَمُسْتَصْلِحَ عَمَلِ الْمُفْسِدِينَ.
and seeks to set right the work of the corrupt!
