O Allah, verily I ask You with the asking of a submissive, abased and lowly man to show me forbearance, to have mercy on me. My God and my Lord! Have I any but You from whom to ask removal of my affliction and regard for my affairs! My God and my Protector! You put into effect through me a decree in which I followed the caprice of my own soul.
So, in what was put into effect through me in that situation, I transgressed some of Your statutes. My Lord, have mercy upon the weakness of my body, the thinness of my skin and the frailty of my bones.

Even though it is a tribulation and ordeal whose stay is short, whose subsistence is but little and, whose period is but fleeting. So how can I endure the tribulations of the next world and the great ordeals that occur within it? For it is a tribulation whose period is long, whose station endures and whose sufferers are given no respite,.
My Protector, so how should he remain in the chastisement, while he has hope for Your previous clemency? Or how should he have hope of Your bounty in freeing him from it, while You abandonest him within it? So I declare with certainty that were it not for what You hast decreed concerning the chastisement of Your deniers. And You— majestic is Your eulogy— said at the beginning and wernt gracious through kindness as a favour,.
And by the decision which You hast determined and imposed and through which You hast overcome him toward whom it has been put into effect,. Skip to main content. Mirza Tahir Tonekaboni 3. My high hopes have held me back from my gain.

According to Allama Majlesi , Kumayl ibn Ziyad , a confidante of Ali ibn Abi Talib had attended an assembly in the Mosque at Basra which was addressed by Imam Ali in the course of which the night of the 15th of Sha'aban a month was mentioned. When the assembly at the Mosque had dispersed, Kumayl called at the house where Ali was staying, and requested him to acquaint him with Prophet Khidhr's supplication. Ali asked Kumayl to sit down, record and memorise the du'a which he dictated to Kumayl. Ali then advised Kumayl ibn Ziyad to recite this du'a on the eve of i. O' Kumayl! Considered one of the famous supplications, that of Khidr, Ali choose to teach this du'a to Kumayl as his disciple.
