Ibna tawus in his book Muhaj al Dawat and Kafami in his book Misbah narrate Dua-e-Yastasheer on the authority of Imam Ali ibna abi Talib who learned it from the Holy Prophet. The Holy Prophet advised him to recite this dua''a regularly, whether in prosperity or poverty, till death, because it unveils the secrets of creation and divine strategy.

دعاء يستشير

اَلْحَمْدُ للهِ الَذي لا إِلـٰهَ إِلاّ هُوَ
All praise is due to Allah. There is no god but He,
الْمَلِكُ الْحَقُّ الْمُبينُ
the King, the Truth that makes all things manifest
الْمُدَبِرُّ بِلا وَزيرٍ وَلا خَلْقٍ مِنْ عِبادِهِ يَسْتَشيرُ،
He is the Administrator without any minister and without consultation with any of his servants.
الأَوَّلُ غَيْرُ مَوْصُوفٍ،
He is the First, who cannot be described.
وَالْباقي بَعْدَ فَناءِ الْخَلْقِ،
He is Eternal and will live forever, (even) after the annihilation of all creatures.
الْعَظيمُ الرُّبُوبِيَّةِ،
He is the greatest Cherisher and Sustainer
نُورُ السَّماواتِ وَالأَرَضينَ وَفاطِرُهُما وَمُبْتَدِعُهُما
the Light of the earths and heavens and their Creator and Maker out of nothing.
بِغَيْرِ عَمَدٍ خَلَقَهُما وَفَتَقَهُما فَتْقاً
He created both of them without any pillars and separated them – a proper separation.
فَقامَتِ السَّماواتُ طائِعاتٌ بِأَمْرِهِ
Thus the heavens became stable in obedience to His commandment
وَاسْتَقَرَّتِ الأَرضَوُنَ (الأَرْضِ) بِأَوْتادِها فَوْقَ الْماءِ،
and the earths became fixed on the surface of the water with their pegs.
ثُمَّ عَلا رَبُّنا فِي السَماواتِ الْعُلىٰ
Then our Lord subdued the high heavens
اَلَّرحْمنُ عَلَىٰ الْعَرْشِ اسْتَوىٰ،
The Most Gracious is firmly established on the throne (of authority)
لَهُ ما فِي السَّماواتِ وَما فِي الأَرْضِ وَما بَيْنَهُما وَما تَحْتَ الثَّرىٰ،
Everything that is in heaven and in the earth and in between them and what is below the earth belongs to Him.
فَأَنَا أَشْهَدُ بِأَنَّكَ أَنْتَ اللهُ لا رافِعَ لِما وَضَعْتَ،
So, I bear witness that verily You are Allah. There is none to elevate what You have lowered
وَلا واضِعَ لِما رَفَعْتَ،
And no one to lower what You have elevated
وَلا مُعِزَّ لِمَنْ أَذْلَلْتَ،
and no one to exalt him whom You leave in disgrace
وَلا مُذِلَّ لِمَنْ أَعْزَزْتَ،
and no one to bring into disgrace him whom You exalt
وَلا مانِعَ لِما أَعْطَيْتَ،
and no one to prevent him upon whom You bestow Your favour
وَلا مُعْطِيَ لِما مَنَعْتَ
and no one to bestow anything, which You have withheld.
وَأَنْتَ اللهُ لا إِلـٰهَ إِلاّ أَنْتَ
You are Allah, there is no god but You
كُنْتَ إِذْ لَمْ تَكُنْ سَماءٌ مَبْنِيَّةٌ وَلا أَرْضٌ مَدْحِيَّةٌ
Who existed when there was neither the stable sky nor the broad earth
وَلا شَمْسٌ مُضيـئَةٌ وَلا لَيْلٌ مُظْلِمٌ وَلا نَهارٌ مُضيـىءٌ،
nor the brilliant sun nor the dark night, nor the bright day,
وَلا بَحْرٌ لُجّـِيٌ وَلا جَبَلٌ راسٍ،
nor the vast and stormy sea, nor any sublime and stable mountain,
وَلا نَجْمٌ سارٍ، وَلا قَمَرٌ مُنيرٌ،
nor any revolving planet, nor the luminous moon,
وَلا ريحٌ تَهُبُّ، وَلا سَحابٌ يَسْكُبُ،
nor any blowing wind, nor any raining cloud,
وَلا بَرْقٌ يَلْمَعُ، وَلا رَعْدٌ يُسَبّـِحُ،
nor flashing lightning, nor any praising thunder,
وَلا رُوحٌ تَنَفَّسُ، وَلا طائِرٌ يَطيرُ،
nor any breathing soul, nor any flying bird,
وَلا نارٌ تَتَوَقَّدُ، وَلا ماءٌ يَطَّرِدُ
nor any blazing fire, nor any flowing water.
كُنْتَ قَبْلَ كُلّ ِ شَيْءٍ
You existed before the existence of everything
وَكَوَّنْتَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ
and You created everything
وَقَدَرْتَ عَلىٰ كُلّ ِ شَيْءٍ
and controlled everything
وَابْتَدَعْتَ كُلَّ شَيْءٍ
and originated everything.
وَأَغْنَيْتَ وَأَفْقَرْتَ
You enriched some and reduced others to poverty,
وَأَمَتَّ وَأَحْيَيْتَ
caused some to die and brought others to life,
وَأَضْحَكْتَ وَأَبْكَيْتَ
and made some people glad and others weep.
وَعَلَىٰ الْعَرشِ اسْتَوَيْتَ
Verily You rule from the Throne.
فَتَبارَكْتَ يا اَللهُ وَتَعالَيْتَ،
You are of vast blessing, O Allah You are Great and Supreme.
أَنْتَ اللهُ الَّذي لا إِلـٰهَ إِلاّ أَنْتَ
You are Allah and there is no god other than You.
الْخَلاّقُ الْمُعينُ

Your grace is excessive; Your gift is most respectable
وَحَبْلُكَ مَتينٌ، وَإِمْكانُكَ عَتيدٌ،
