EnAr Aa

When he finished his prayer, He would stand in place, face the qibla, and say:

دُعَاؤُهُ فِي عِيدِ الْفِطْرِ وَ الْجُمُعَةِ

يَا مَنْ يَرْحَمُ مَنْ لا يَرْحَمُهُ الْعِبَادُ.
O He who has mercy upon him toward whom the servants show no mercy!
وَيَا مَنْ يَقْبَلُ مَنْ لا تَقْبَلُهُ الْبِلاَدُ.
O He who accepts him whom the cities will not accept!
وَيَا مَن لاَ يَحْتَقِرُ أَهْلَ الْحَاجَةِ إلَيْهِ.
O He who looks not down upon those who have need of Him!
وَيَا مَنْ لا يُخَيِّبُ المَلِحِّيْنَ عَلَيْـهِ،
O He who disappoints not those who implore Him!
وَيَا مَنْ لاَ يَجْبَهُ بِالرَّدِّ أَهْلَ الدَّالَّةِ عَليهِ،
O He who slaps not the brow of the people of boldness toward Him with rejection!
وَيَا مَنْ يَجْتَبِي صَغِيرَ مَايُتْحَفُ بِهِ،
O He who collects the little that is given to Him
وَيَشْكُرُ يَسِيرَ مَا يُعْمَلُ لَهُ.
and shows gratitude for the paltry that is done for Him!
وَيَامَنْ يَشْكُرُ عَلَى الْقَلِيْلِ، وَيُجَازيْ بِالْجَلِيلِ،
O He who shows gratitude for the small and rewards with the great!
وَيَا مَنْ يَدْنُو إلَى مَنْ دَنا مِنْهُ
O He who comes close to him who comes close to Him!
وَيَا مَنْ يَدعُو إلَى نَفْسِهِ مَنْ أَدْبَرَ عَنْهُ،
O He who invites to Himself him who turns his back on Him!
وَيَا مَنْ لا يُغَيِّرُ النِّعْمَةَ، وَلا يُبَادِرُ بِالنَّقِمَةِ،
O He who changes not favour and rushes not to vengeance!
وَيَا مَنْ يُثْمِرُ الْحَسَنَةَ حَتَّى يُنْمِيَهَا،
O He who causes the good deed to bear fruit so that He may make it grow,
وَيَتَجَاوَزُ عَنِ السَّيِّئَةِ حَتَّى يُعَفِّيَهَا.
and overlooks the evil deed so that He may efface it!
انْصَرَفَتِ الآمَالُ دُونَ مَدى كَرَمِكَ بِالحَاجَاتِ
Hopes turn back with needs fulfilled short of the extent of Thy generosity,
وَامْتَلاَتْ بِفَيْضِ جُودِكَ أَوْعِيَةُ الطَّلِبات،
the cups of requests fill up with the overflow of Thy munificence,
وَتَفَسَّخَتْ دُونَ بُلُوغِ نَعْتِـكَ الصِّفَاتُ،
and attributes fall apart without reaching Thy description.
فَلَكَ الْعُلُوُّ الأعْلَى فَوْقَ كُلِّ عَال،
For to Thee belongs the highest highness above everything high,
وَالْجَلاَلُ الأمْجَدُ فَوْقَ كُلِّ جَلاَل،
and the most glorious majesty beyond every majesty!
كُلُّ جَلِيْل عِنْدَكَ صَغِيرٌ،
Everything majestic before Thee is small,
وَكُلُّ شَرِيف فِي جَنْبِ شَرَفِكَ حَقِيرٌ،
everything eminent beside Thy eminence vile!
خَابَ الْوَافِدُونَ عَلَى غَيْرِكَ،
Those who reach other than Thee are disappointed,
وَخَسِرَ الْمُتَعَرِّضُونَ إلاَّ لَكَ، وَضَاعَ الْمُلِمُّونَ إلاّ بِكَ،
those who present themselves to other than Thee have lost, those who stay with other than Thee have perished,
وَأَجْدَبَ الْمُنْتَجِعُـونَ إلاَّ مَنِ انْتَجَعَ فَضْلَكَ،
and those who retreat - except those who retreat to Thy bounty - are desolate!
بَابُكَ مَفْتُوحٌ لِلرَّاغِبِينَ، وَجُودُكَ مُبَاحٌ لِلسَّائِلِينَ،
Thy door is open to the beseechers, Thy munificence free to the askers,
وَإغاثَتُكَ قَرِيبَةٌ مِنَ الْمُسْتَغِيْثِينَ،
Thy help near to the help-seekers!
لاَ يَخِيبُ مِنْـكَ الآمِلُونَ، وَلاَ يَيْأَسُ مِنْ عَطَائِكَ الْمُتَعَرِّضُونَ،
The expectant are not disappointed by Thee, those who present themselves despair not of Thy bestowal,
وَلا يَشْقَى بِنَقْمَتِكَ الْمُسْتَغْفِرُونَ.
the forgiveness-seekers become not wretched through Thy vengeance!
رِزْقُكَ مَبْسُوطٌ لِمَنْ عَصَاكَ،
Thy provision is spread among those who disobey Thee,
وَحِلْمُكَ مُعْتَـرِضٌ لِمَنْ نَاوَاكَ،
Thy clemency presents itself to those hostile toward Thee,
عَادَتُكَ الإحْسَـانُ إلَى الْمُسِيئينَ،
Thy habit is beneficence toward the evildoers,
وَسُنَّتُـكَ الإبْقَاءُ عَلَى الْمُعْتَدِينَ
and Thy wont is to spare the transgressors,
حَتَّى لَقَدْ غَرَّتْهُمْ أَنَاتُكَ عَنِ الرُّجُوعِ،
so much so that Thy lack of haste deludes them from returning,
وَصَدَّهُمْ إمْهَالُكَ عَن النُّزُوعِ.
and Thy disregard bars them from desisting!
وَإنَّمَا تَأَنَّيْتَ بهمْ لِيَفِيئُوا إلَى أَمْرِكَ،
Thou actest without haste toward them so that they will come back to Thy command
وَأَمْهَلْتَهُمْ ثِقَةً بِدَوَامِ مُلْكِكَ،
and Thou disregardest them confident in the permanence of Thy kingdom,
فَمَنْ كَانَ مِنْ أَهْلِ السَّعَادَةِ خَتَمْتَ لَهُ بِهَا،
so Thou sealest him who is worthy of it with felicity,
وَمَنْ كَانَ مِنْ أَهْلِ الشَّقَاوَةِ خَذَلْتَهُ لَهَا،
and Thou abandonest him who is worthy of it to wretchedness!
كُلُّهُمْ صَائِرُونَ إلَى حُكْمِكَ وَأُمُورُهُمْ آئِلَةٌ إلَى أَمْـرِكَ،
All of them come home to Thy decree, their affairs revert to Thy command;
لَمْ يَهِنْ عَلَى طُـولِ مُـدَّتِهِمْ سُلْطَانُـكَ
Thy authority grows not feeble through their drawn out term,
وَلَمْ يَـدْحَضْ لِتَـرْكِ مُعَاجَلَتِهِمْ بُرْهَانُكَ.
Thy proof is not refuted by the failure to hurry after them.
حُجَّتُكَ قَائِمَةٌ لاَ تُدْحَضُ،
Thy argument is established, never refuted,
وَسُلْطَانُكَ ثَابِتٌ لا يَزُولُ،
Thy authority fixed, never removed.
فَالْوَيْلُ الدَّائِمُ لِمَنْ جَنَحَ عَنْكَ،
Permanent woe belongs to him who inclines away from Thee,
وَالْخَيْبَةُ الْخَاذِلَةُ لِمَنْ خَابَ مِنْكَ،
forsaking disappointment to him who is disappointed by Thee,
وَالشَّقاءُ الاشْقَى لِمَنِ اغْتَرَّ بِكَ.
and the most wretched wretchedness to him who is deluded about Thee!
مَا أكْثَرَ تَصَرُّفَهُ فِي عَذَابِكَ،
How much he will move about in Thy chastisement!
وَمَا أَطْوَلَ تَرَدُّدَهُ فِيْ عِقَابِكَ،
How long he will frequent Thy punishment!
وَمَا أَبْعَدَ غَايَتَهُ مِنَ الْفَرَجِ،
How far his utmost end from relief!
وَمَا أَقْنَطَهُ مِنْ سُهُولَةِ الْمَخْرَجِ
How he will despair of an easy exit!
عَدْلاً مِنْ قَضَائِكَ لاَ تَجُورُ فِيهِ،
[All of this] as justice from Thy decree (Thou art not unjust in it!),
. وَإنْصَافاً مِنْ حُكْمِكَ لاَ تَحِيفُ عَلَيْهِ،
and equity from Thy judgement (Thou dost not act wrongfully against him!)
فَقَدْ ظَاهَرْتَ الْحُجَجَ، وَأَبْلَيْتَ الاعْذَارَ،
Thou supported the arguments, tested the excuses,
وَقَـدْ تَقَدَّمْتَ بِـالْوَعِيْـدِ وَتَلَطَّفْتَ فِي التَّرْغِيْبِ،
began with threats, showed gentleness with encouragement,
وَضَرَبْتَ الامْثَالَ، وَأَطَلْتَ الاِمْهَالَ،
struck similitudes, made long the respite,
وَأَخَّرْتَ وَأَنْتَ مُسْتَطِيعٌ لِلْمُعَاجَلَةِ،
delayed, while Thou art able to hurry,
وَتَأَنَّيْتَ وَأَنْتَ مَليءٌ بِالْمُبَادَرَةِ،
and acted without haste, while Thou art full of quick accomplishment!
لَمْ تَكُنْ أَنَاتُكَ عَجْزاً، وَلا إمْهَالُكَ وَهْناً،
Not because of incapacity is Thy slowness, feebleness Thy giving respite,
وَلاَ إمْسَاكُكَ غَفْلَةً، وَلاَ انْتِظَارُكَ مُدَارَاةً،
heedlessness Thy showing restraint, dissemblance Thy waiting!
بَلْ لِتَكُونَ حُجَّتُكَ أَبْلَغَ، وَكَرَمُكَ أكمَلَ،
But that Thy argument be more conclusive, Thy generosity more perfect,
وَإحْسَانُكَ أَوْفَى وَنِعْمَتُكَ أَتَمَّ،
Thy beneficence more exhaustive, Thy favour more complete!
كُلُّ ذلِكَ كَانَ وَلَمْ تَزَلْ، وَهُوَ كائِنٌ وَلاَ تَزَالُ ،
All of this has been and always was, is and ever will be.
حُجَّتُكَ أَجَلُّ مِنْ أَنْ توصَفَ بِكُلِّهَا،
Thy argument is greater than that its totality be described,
وَمَجْدُكَ أَرْفَـعُ مِنْ أَنْ يُحَدَّ بِكُنْهِهِ،
Thy glory more elevated than that it be limited in its core,
وَنِعْمَتُكَ أكْثَرُ مِنْ أَنْ تُحْصَى بِأَسْرِهَا،
Thy favour more abundant than that its entirety be counted,
وَإحْسَانُكَ أكْثَرُ مِنْ أَنْ تُشْكَرَ عَلَى أَقَلِّهِ،
Thy beneficence more abundant than that thanks be given for its least amount!
وَقَدْ قَصَّرَ بِيَ السُّكُوتُ عَنْ تَحْمِيدِكَ،
Speechlessness has made me fall short of praising Thee,
وَفَهَّهَنِي الإمْسَاكُ عَنْ تَمْجيدِكَ،
restraint has made me powerless to glorify Thee,
وَقُصَارَايَ الإقْرَارُ بِالْحُسُورِ
and the most I can do is admit to inability,
لاَ رَغْبَةً ـ يا إلهِي ـ بَلْ عَجْزاً،
not out of desire, my God, but out of incapacity.
فَهَا أَنَا ذَا أَؤُمُّكَ بِالْوِفَادَةِ، وَأَسأَلُكَ حُسْنَ الرِّفَادَةِ،
So here I am: I repair to Thee by coming forward, and I ask from Thee good support
فَصلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِـهِ وَاسْمَعْ نَجْوَايَ،
So bless Muhammad and his Household, hear my whispered words,
وَاسْتَجِبْ دُعَائِي وَلاَ تَخْتِمْ يَوْمِيَ بِخَيْبَتِي،
grant my supplication, seal not my day with disappointment,
وَلاَ تَجْبَهْنِي بِالرَّدِّ فِي مَسْأَلَتِي،
slap not my brow by rejecting my request,
وَأكْرِمْ مِنْ عِنْدِكَ مُنْصَرَفِي وَإلَيْكَ مُنْقَلَبِي،
and make noble my coming from Thee and my going back to Thee!
إنَّكَ غَيْرُ ضَائِق بِمَا تُرِيْدُ وَلاَ عَاجِزٍ عَمَّا تُسْأَلُ،
Surely Thou art not constrained by what Thou desirest, nor incapable of what Thou art asked!
وَأَنْتَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْء قَدِيْرٌ،
Thou art powerful over everything,
وَلا حَوْلَ وَلا قُوَّةَ إلاَّ بِاللهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظِيمِ.
and there is no force and no strength save in God, the All-high, the All-mighty!
