Supplication 42- upon Completing a Reading of the Qur'an

دُعَاؤُهُ عِنْدَ خَتْمِهِ الْقُرْآنَ

أَللَّهُمَّ إنَّكَ أَعَنْتَنِي عَلَى خَتْمِ كِتَابِكَ
O God, Thou hast helped me complete Thy Book,
الَّذِي أَنْزَلْتَهُ نُوراً وَجَعَلْتَهُ مُهَيْمِناً
which Thou sent down as a light and appointed as a guardian
عَلَى كُلِّ كِتَاب أَنْزَلْتَهُ،
over every book Thou hast sent down,
وَفَضَّلْتَهُ عَلَى كُلِّ حَدِيث قَصَصْتَهُ،
preferring it over every narrative which Thou hast recounted,
وَفُرْقاناً فَرَقْتَ بِهِ بَيْنَ حَلالِكَ وَحَرَامِكَ،
a separator, through which Thou hast separated Thy lawful from Thy unlawful,
وَقُرْآناً أَعْرَبْتَ بِهِ عَنْ شَرَائِعِ أَحْكَامِكَ،
a Qur'an, through which Thou hast made plain the approaches to Thy ordinances,
وَكِتَاباً فَصَّلْتَهُ لِعِبَادِكَ تَفْصِيلاً،
a book, which Thou hast distinguished very distinctly for Thy servants,
وَوَحْياً أَنْزَلْتَهُ عَلَى نَبِيِّكَ مُحَمَّد صَلَوَاتُكَ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ تَنْزِيلاً،
a revelation, which Thou hast sent down, a sending down, upon Thy prophet Muhammad (Thy blessings be upon him and his Household).
وَجَعَلْتَهُ نُوراً نَهْتَدِي مِنْ ظُلَمِ الضَّلاَلَةِ وَالْجَهَـالَةِ بِـاتِّبَاعِـهِ،
Thou appointed it a light through following which we may be guided from the shadows of error and ignorance,
وَشِفَـاءً لِمَنْ أَنْصَتَ بِفَهْم التَّصْدِيقِ إلَى اسْتِمَاعِهِ،
a healing for him who turns ear toward hearing it with the understanding of attestation,
وَمِيزَانَ قِسْط لاَ يَحِيْفُ عَنِ الْحَقِّ لِسَانُهُ،
a just balance whose tongue does not incline away from truth,
وَنُورَ هُدىً لاَ يُطْفَأُ عَنِ الشَّاهِدِينَ بُرْهَانُهُ،
a light of guidance whose proof is not extinguished before the witnesses,
وَعَلَمَ نَجَاة لاَ يَضِلُّ مَنْ أَمَّ قَصْدَ سُنَّتِهِ
and a guidepost of deliverance, so that he who repairs straightway to its prescription will not go astray
وَلاَ تَنَالُ أَيْدِي الْهَلَكَاتِ مَنْ تَعَلَّقَ بِعُرْوَةِ عِصْمَتِهِ،
and he who clings to its preservation's handhold will not be touched by the hands of disasters.
أَللَّهُمَّ فَإذْ أَفَدْتَنَا الْمعُونَةَ عَلَى تِلاَوَتِهِ،
O God, since Thou hast given us help to recite it
وَسَهَّلْتَ جَوَاسِيَ أَلْسِنَتِنَا بِحُسْنِ عِبَارَتِهِ،
and made smooth the roughness of our tongues through the beauty of its expression,
فَاجْعَلْنَا مِمَّنْ يَرْعَاهُ حَقَّ رِعَايَتِهِ،
place us among those who observe it as it should be observed,
وَيَدِينُ لَكَ بِاعْتِقَادِ التَّسْلِيْمِ لِمُحْكَمِ آياتِهِ،
serve Thee by adhering in submission to the firm text of its verses,
وَيَفْزَعُ إلى الإِقْرَارِ بِمُتَشَابِهِهِ وَمُوضَحَاتِ بَيِّناتِهِ.
and seek refuge in admitting both its ambiguous parts and the elucidations of its clear signs!
أللَّهُمَّ إنَّكَ أَنْزَلْتَهُ عَلَى نَبِيِّكَ
O God, Thou sent it down upon Thy prophet
مُحَمَّد صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ مُجْمَلاً،
Muhammad (God bless him and his household) in summary form,
وَأَلْهَمْتَهُ عِلْمَ عَجَائِبِهِ مُكَمَّلاً،
Thou inspired him with the science of its wonders to complement it,
وَوَرَّثْتَنَا عِلْمَهُ مُفَسَّراً،
Thou made us the heirs of its knowledge as interpreters,
وَفَضَّلْتَنَا عَلَى مَنْ جَهِلَ عِلْمَهُ،
Thou made us to surpass him who is ignorant of its knowledge,
وَقَوَّيْتَنَا عَلَيْهِ لِتَرْفَعَنَا فَوْقَ مَنْ لَمْ يُطِقْ حَمْلَهُ.
and Thou gave us strength over it to raise us above those not able to carry it.
أللَّهُمَّ فَكَمَا جَعَلْتَ قُلُوبَنَا لَهُ حَمَلَةً،
O God, just as Thou hast appointed our hearts as its carriers
وَعَرَّفْتَنَا بِرَحْمَتِكَ شَرَفَهُ وَفَضْلَهُ،
and made known to us through Thy mercy its nobility and excellence,
فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد الْخَطِيْبِ بِهِ،
so also bless Muhammad, its preacher,
وَعَلَى آلِهِ الْخُزّانِ لَهُ،
and his Household, its guardians,
وَاجْعَلْنَا مِمَّنْ يَعْتَرِفُ بِأَنـَّهُ مِنْ عِنْدِكَ
and place us among those who confess that it has come from Thee,
حَتَّى لاَ يُعَارِضَنَا الشَّكُّ فِي تَصْدِيقِهِ
lest doubt about attesting to it assail us,
وَلاَ يَخْتَلِجَنَا الزَّيْغُ عَنْ قَصْدِ طَرِيقِهِ.
or deviation from its straightforward path shake us!
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِـهِ،
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household
وَاجْعَلْنَا مِمَّنْ يَعْتَصِمُ بِحَبْلِهِ،
and make us one of those who hold fast to its cord,
وَيَـأْوِي مِنَ الْمُتَشَـابِهَاتِ إلَى حِرْزِ مَعْقِلِهِ،
seek haven from its ambiguities in its fortified stronghold,
وَيَسْكُنُ فِي ظِـلِّ جَنَاحِهِ،
rest in the shadow of its wing,
وَيَهْتَدِي بِضَوْءِ صَباحِِهِ،
find guidance in the brightness of its morning,
وَيَقْتَدِي بِتَبَلُّج إسْفَارِهِ،
follow the shining of its disclosure,
وَيَسْتَصْبحُ بِمِصْباحِهِ،
acquire light from its lamp,
وَلا يَلْتَمِسُ ألْهُدَى فِي غَيْرِهِ.
and beg not guidance from any other!
أللَّهُمَّ وَكَمَا نَصَبْتَ بِهِ مُحَمَّداً عَلَماً لِلدَّلالَةِ عَلَيْكَ،
O God, just as through it Thou hast set up Muhammad as a guidepost to point to Thee
وَأَنْهَجْتَ بِآلِهِ سُبُلَ الرِّضَا إلَيْكَ.
and through his Household Thou hast made clear Thy good pleasure's roads to Thee,
فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
so also bless Muhammad and his Household
وَاجْعَلِ القُرْآنَ وَسِيلَةً لَنَا إلَى أَشْرَفِ مَنَازِلِ الْكَرَامَةِ،
and make the Qur'an our mediation to the noblest stations of Thy honour,
وَسُلَّماً نَعْرُجُ فِيهِ إلَى مَحَلِّ السَّلامَةِ،
a ladder by which we may climb to the place of safety,
وَسَبَباً نُجْزَى بِهِ النَّجاةَ فِي عَرْصَةِ الْقِيَامَةِ،
a cause for our being repaid with deliverance at the Plain of Resurrection,
وَذَرِيعَةً نُقْدِمُ بِهَا عَلَى نَعِيْمِ دَارِ الْمُقَامَةِ.
and a means whereby we may reach the bliss of the House of Permanence!
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household,
وَاحْطُطْ بالْقُرْآنِ عَنَّا ثِقْلَ الأوْزَارِ،
lessen for us through the Qur'an the weight of heavy sins,
وَهَبْ لَنَا حُسْنَ شَمَائِلِ الأَبْرَارِ
give to us the excellent qualities of the pious,
وَاقْفُ بِنَا آثَارَ الَّذِينَ قَامُوا لَكَ بِهِ
and make us follow the tracks of those who stood before Thee
آنَاءَ اللَّيْلِ وَأَطْرَافَ النَّهَارِ
in the watches of the night and the ends of the day,
حَتَّى تُطَهِّرَنَا مِنْ كُلِّ دَنَس بِتَطْهِيرِهِ،
such that Thou purifiest us from every defilement through its purification
وَتَقْفُوَ بِنَا آثَارَ الَّذِينَ اسْتَضَـآءُوْا بِنُورِهِ،
and makest us to follow the tracks of those who have taken illumination from its light
وَلَمْ يُلْهِهِمُ الأَمَلُ عَنِ الْعَمَـل فَيَقْطَعَهُمْ بِخُدَعِ غُرُورِهِ.
and whom expectation has not distracted from works, cutting them off through its delusions' deceptions!
أَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household
واجْعَلِ القُرْآنَ لنا فِي ظُلَمِ اللَّيالِي مُونِساً
and appoint the Qur'an for us an intimate in the shadows of nights
وَمِنْ نَزَغَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ وَخَطَرَاتِ الْوَسَاوِسِ حَارِساً،
and a guardian against the instigations of Satan and confusing thoughts,
وَلأقْدَامِنَا عَنْ نَقْلِهَا إلَى الْمَعَاصِيْ حَابِساً،
for our feet an obstruction from passing to acts of disobedience,
وَلأِلْسِنَتِنَا عَنِ الْخَوْضِ فِي الباطِلِ مِنْ غَيْرِ مَا آفَة مُخْرِساً،
for our tongues a silencer without blight preventing a plunge into falsehood,
وَلِجَوَارِحِنَا عَنِ اقْتِرَافِ الآثامِ زَاجِراً،
for our limbs a restrainer from committing sins,
وَلِمَا طَوَتِ الغَفْلَةُ عَنَّا مِنْ تَصَفُّحِ الاعْتِبَارِ نَاشِراً
and for the scrutiny of heedfulness rolled up in heedlessness an unroller,
حَتَّى تُوصِلَ إلَى قُلُوبِنَا فَهْمَ عَجَائِبِهِ
such that Thou attachest to our hearts the understanding of the Qur'an's wonders
وَزَوَاجِرَ أَمْثَـالِهِ الَّتِي ضَعُفَتِ الْجِبَالُ الرَّوَاسِي
and its restraining similitudes which immovable mountains in all their solidity
عَلَى صَلاَبَتِهَا عَنِ احْتِمَالِهِ.
were too weak to carry!
اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household
وَأَدِمْ بِالْقُرْانِ صَلاَحَ ظاهِرِنا،
and through the Qur'an make permanent the rightness of our outward selves,
وَاحْجُبْ بِهِ خَطَراتِ الْوَسَاوِسِ عَنْ صِحَّةِ ضَمَائِرِنَا،
veil the ideas of confusing thoughts from the soundness of our innermost minds,
وَاغْسِلْ بِهِ دَرَنَ قُلُوبِنَا وَعَلاَئِقَ أَوْزَارِنَا،
wash away the dirt of our hearts and the ties of our heavy sins,
وَاجْمَعْ بِهِ مُنْتَشَرَ أُمُورِنَا،
gather our scattered affairs,
وَأَرْوِ بِهِ فِي مَـوْقِفِ الْعَرْضِ عَلَيْكَ ظَمَأ هَوَاجِرِنَا،
quench the thirst of our burning heat in the standing place of the presentation to Thee,
وَاكْسُنَا بِهِ حُلَلَ الأَمَانِ يَوْمَ الْفَزَعِ الأكْبَرِ فِي نشُورِنَا.
and clothe us in the robes of security on the Day of the Greatest Terror at our uprising!
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
God, bless Muhammad and his Household
وَاجْبُرْ بِالْقُرْآنِ خَلَّتَنَا مِنْ عَدَمِ الإمْلاَقِ،
and through the Qur'an redress our lack - our destitution in poverty
وَسُقْ إلَيْنَا بِهِ رَغَدَ الْعَيْشِ وَخِصْبَ سَعَةِ الأرْزَاقِ،
drive toward us the comforts of life and an abundance of plentiful provisions,
وَجَنِّبْنَا بِهِ الضَّرَائِبَ الْمَذْمُومَةَ وَمَدَانِيَ الأخْلاَقِ،
turn aside blameworthy character traits and base moral qualities,
وَاعْصِمْنَا بِهِ مِنْ هُوَّةِ الكُفْرِ وَدَوَاعِـي النِّفَاقِ
and preserve us from the pit of unbelief and the motives for hypocrisy,
حَتَّى يَكُوْنَ لَنَا فِي الْقِيَامَةِ إلَى رِضْوَانِكَ وَجِنَانِكَ قَائِداً
such that the Qur'an may be for us at the resurrection a leader to Thy good pleasure and Thy gardens,
وَلَنَا فِي الدُّنْيا عَنْ سَخَطِكَ وَتَعَدِّي حُدُودِكَ ذَائِداً،
for us in this world a protector against Thy displeasure and transgressing Thy bounds
وَلِمَا عِنْدَكَ بِتَحْلِيلِ حَلاَلِهِ وَتَحْرِيم حَرَامِهِ شَاهِداً.
and for what is with Thee a witness by its declaring lawful the lawful and its declaring unlawful the unlawful!
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household
وَهَوِّنْ بِالْقُرْآنِ عِنْدَ الْمَوْتِ عَلَى أَنْفُسِنَا كَرْبَ السِّيَاقِ،
and through the Qur'an make easy for our souls at death the distress of the driving,
وَجَهْدَ الأنِينِ، وَتَرادُفَ الْحَشَارِجِ
the effort of the moaning, and the succession of the rattling,
إذَا بَلَغَتِ ألنُّفُوسُ التَّراقِيَ وَقِيلَ مَنْ رَاق
'when souls reach the throats' (ref.75:26) "and it is said, 'Where is the enchanter"? (75:27)';
وَتَجَلَّى مَلَكُ الْمَوْتِ لِقَبْضِهَا مِنْ حُجُبِ الْغُيُوبِ،
when the angel of death discloses himself to seize them from behind the veils of unseen things,
وَرَمَاهَا عَنْ قَوْسِ الْمَنَايَا بِأَسْهُمِ وَحْشَةِ الْفِرَاقِ،
letting loose at them from the bow of destinies the arrows of the terror of lonesome separation,
وَدَافَ لَهَا مِنْ ذَعَافِ الْمَوْتِ كَأْساً مَسْمُومَةَ الْمَذَاقِ،
and mixing for them from sudden death a cup poisoned to the taste;
وَدَنا مِنَّا إلَى الآخِرَةِ رَحِيلٌ وَانْطِلاَقٌ،
and when departure and release for the hereafter come close to us,
وَصَارَتِ الأعْمَالُ قَلاَئِـدَ فِي الأَعْنَاقِ،
works become collars around the necks,
وَكَانَتِ الْقُبُورُ هِيَ الْمَأوَى إلَى مِيقَاتِ يَوْمِ التَّلاَقِ.
and the graves become the haven until the appointed time of the Day of Encounter!
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household,
وَبَارِكْ لَنَا فِي حُلُولِ دَارِ البِلَى
make blessed for us the arrival at the house of decay
وَطُولِ الْمُقَامَـةِ بَيْنَ أَطْبَـاقِ الثَّـرى،
and the drawn out residence between the layers of the earth,
وَاجْعَلِ القبُورَ بَعْدَ فِرَاقِ الدُّنْيَا خَيْرَ مَنَازِلِنَا،
appoint the graves, after separation from this world, the best of our waystations,
وَافْسَحْ لَنَا بِرَحْمَتِكَ فِي ضِيقِ مَلاَحِدِنَا،
make roomy for us through Thy mercy the narrowness of our tombs,
وَلا تَفْضَحْنَا فِي حَاضِرِي الْقِيَامَةِ بِمُوبِقَاتِ آثامِنَا،
and disgrace us not among those present at the Resurrection through our ruinous sins!
وَارْحَمْ بِالْقُرْانِ فِيْ مَوْقِفِ الْعَرْضِ عَلَيْكَ ذُلَّ مَقَامِنَا،
Through the Qur'an have mercy upon the lowliness of our station at the standing place of presentation to Thee,
وَثَبِّتْ بِهِ عِنْدَ اضْطِرَابِ جِسْرِ جَهَنَّمَ
make firm the slips of our feet during the shaking of the bridge across hell
يَوْمَ الْمَجَازِ عَلَيْهَـا زَلَلَ أَقْدَامِنَا،
on the day of passage over it,
وَنَوِّرْ بِهِ قَبْلَ الْبَعْثِ سُدَفَ قُبُورنا،
illuminate the darkness of our graves before the Uprising,
وَنَجِّنَا بِهِ مِنْ كُلِّ كَرْب يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ
and deliver us from every distress on the Day of Resurrection
وَشَدَائِدِ أَهْوَالِ يَوْمِ الطَّامَّةِ
and from the hardships of terrors on the Day of Disaster!
وَبَيِّضْ وُجُوهَنَا يَوْمَ تَسْوَدُّ وُجُوهُ الظَّلَمَةِ
Whiten our faces on the day when the faces of wrongdoers are blackened
فِي يَوْمِ الْحَسْرَةِ وَالنَّدَامَةِ،
during the Day of Regret and Remorse,
وَاجْعَلْ لَنَا فِي صُدُورِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وُدّاً،
appoint love for us in the breasts of the faithful,
وَلاَ تَجْعَلِ الْحَيَاةَ عَلَيْنَا نَكَداً.
and make not life for us troublesome!
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد عَبْدِكَ وَرَسُولِكَ
O God, bless Muhammad, Thy servant and Thy messenger,
كَمَا بَلَّغَ رِسَالَتَكَ، وَصَدَعَ بِأَمْرِكَ، وَنَصَحَ لِعِبَادِكَ.
just as He delivered Thy message, executed Thy command, and counselled Thy servants!
أللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ نَبِيَّنا صَلَواتُكَ عَلَيْهِ
O God, make our Prophet (Thy blessings be upon him
وَعَلَى آلِهِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ أَقْرَبَ النِّبِيِّينَ مِنْكَ مَجْلِساً،
and his Household) on the Day of Resurrection the nearest of the prophets to Thee in seat,
وَأَمْكَنَهُمْ مِنْكَ شَفَاعَةً، وَأَجَلَّهُمْ عِنْدَكَ قَدْراً،
the ablest of them before Thee with intercession, the greatest of them with Thee in measure,
وَأَوْجَهَهُمْ عِنْدَكَ جَاهَاً.
and the most eminent of them with Thee in rank!
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِ مُحَمَّد وَشَرِّفْ بُنْيَانَهُ،
O God, bless Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad, ennoble his edifice,
وَعَظِّمْ بُرْهَانَهُ، وَثَقِّلْ مِيزَانَهُ،
magnify his proof, make weighty his balance,
وَتَقَبَّلْ شَفَاعَتَهُ وَقَرِّبْ وَسِيلَتَهُ،
accept his intercession, bring near his mediation,
وَبَيِّضْ وَجْهَهُ، وَأَتِمَّ نُورَهُ،
whiten his face, complete his light,
وَارْفَعْ دَرَجَتَهُ، وَأَحْيِنَا عَلَى سُنَّتِهِ،
and raise his degree! Make us live according to his Sunna
وَتَوَفَّنَا عَلَى مِلَّتِهِ، وَخُذْ بِنَـا مِنْهَاجَـهُ،
make us die in his creed, take us on his road,
وَاسْلُكْ بِنَا سَبِيلَهُ، وَاجْعَلْنَا مِنْ أَهْلِ طَاعَتِهِ،
make us travel his path, place us among the people who obey him,
وَاحْشُرْنَا فِي زُمْرَتِهِ،
muster us in his band,
وَأَوْرِدْنَا حَوْضَهُ، وَاسْقِنَا بِكَأسِهِ.
lead us to up his pool, and give us to drink of his cup!
أللَّهُمَّ وَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
And bless Muhammad and his Household,
صَلاةً تُبَلِّغُهُ بِهَا أَفْضَلَ
with a blessing through which Thou wilt take him to the most excellent
مَا يَأْمُلُ مِنْ خَيْرِكَ وَفَضْلِكَ وَكَرَامَتِكَ
of what He hopes of Thy good, Thy bounty, and Thy generosity!
إنَّكَ ذُوْ رَحْمَة وَاسِعَة وَفَضْل كَرِيم.
Thou art Possessor of boundless mercy and generous bounty.
أللَّهُمَّ اجْزِهِ بِمَا بَلَّغَ مِنْ رِسَالاتِكَ
O God, repay him for Thy messages which he delivered,
وَأَدَّى مِنْ آيَاتِكَ وَنَصَحَ لِعِبَادِكَ
Thy signs which he passed on, the good counsel he gave to Thy servants,
وَجَاهَدَ فِي سَبِيلِكَ أَفْضَلَ مَا جَزَيْتَ
and the struggle he undertook in Thy way, with the best Thou hast repaid
أَحَداً مِنْ مَلائِكَتِكَ الْمُقَرَّبِينَ وَأَنْبِيَائِكَ الْمُرْسَلِينَ الْمُصْطَفَيْنَ.
any of Thy angels brought nigh and Thy prophets sent out and chosen!
وَالسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْهِ وَعَلَى آلِهِ الطَّيِّبِينَ الطَّاهِرِينَ
And upon him and his Household, the good, the pure, be peace,
وَرَحْمَةُ الله وَبَرَكَاتُهُ.
God's mercy, and His blessings!
