This dua'a contains the articles of faith. Every faithful must recite this dua'a regularly to drive away Shaytan, and to remain firm in the true faith. A dying faithful, in the last moments of life, should recite this dua'a, or , if it is not possible, ask someone else to read it aloud for him or her, so as not to be misled by doubts which may come into the mind, or not to be depressed emotionally, because these forces together with the misleading suggestions of Shaytan, more often than not, in the last hour of life, make man die a death of an infidel or hypocrite.
How manifest His generosity is! How magnificent to seek Him is! Many authentically reported supplications have comprised the following statement:. Deviation at the hour of death stands for shifting from the right to the wrong at the hour of death. To explain, Satan attends at the hour of death in order to deceive the moribund and suggest evil to him in order to make him doubt about his religion. If Satan succeeds, he will pull out faith from the heart of the dying person.
This can be done by saying the following prayer:. The question whether this supplication has been reported from the Holy Imams, peace be upon them, or has been composed by a certain scholar is controversial. Allah Himself is witness that there is no god but He. English image. The angles and the men of wisdom, standing firm for justice too are witness. That there is no god but He, the Almighty, the All-Wise. Verily, religion with Allah is Islam.
And I, a timid servant, sinful, guilty, insignificant, needy, destitute, give witness of my Benefactor, my creator, my Sustainer, and my liberal patron, just as He Himself testifies, and testify the Angles and the men of wisdom, His servants, that verily there is no god but He, Possessor of bounties and favours, generosity and blessings. Eternal almighty, Ever-lasting, knower, One and only Ever-living, Ever-existing, Hearer, seer, willing, discriminating, Aware, Independent.
Worthy is He of these attributes, although, truly speaking, He is over and above attribution. He was Almighty prior to the actuality of might and power was created. He was wise before the conception of knowledge and reason was brought about. He was Absolute Sovereign even when there was no kingdom or possession. He is Glory under al circumstances. His supreme Being is prior to antecedence, and Eternal, without a beginning. He will survive continually beyond the end of everything, imperishable, and without an end.
He has no needs; in the beginning as well as in the end. He is able free from dependence, by Himself, whether inward, or outward, There is no injustice in His Judgment, no unfairness in His management, no oppression in His administration. It is impossible to deny His Sovereignty, or to run away from His firm grip, or to avoid His punishment.
His mercy overtakes his anger. If a handicapped person asks for anything from Him, unable to approach Him properly on account of frustrating trouble, he is treated in the matter of fulfillment at par with an able beseecher. Glory be to he! How much kind is He! Highest is His glory. Glory be to He! How wonderful His gifts!
And certainly his favours are countless. I testify that there are pious Imams and righteous successors, after the chosen Messenger , from Ali, the subduer of infidels. I bear witness that their words are decisive arguments; to follow their example is obligatory, to obey them is compulsory, to love them is necessary because it has been preordained, to take after them is sure salvation, to oppose them is certain destruction.
They are the chiefs of the people of paradise, effective helpers on the Dayof Judgment, the best guides for the mankind, surely the best approved successors. I testify that death is certain, interrogation in the grave is certain, raising of the dead is certain, Siraat the bridge over hell is certain, Meezan trail is certain, Hisaab accountability is certain, The Book Holy Quraan is true, paradise is real, Hell is real, and certainly there is no doubt in the hour of resurrection.
Verily Allah shall raise the dead from their graves. O Allah! I hope to receive Thy favour, Thy generosity and mercy I expect for getting into paradise, for my conduct gives me no right, for obtaining Thy bliss as I was not obedient, except that I believe Thy Oneness, and Thy Justice. I depend upon Thy favours, and Thy generosity.
Accommodated me for the sake of my Prophet and his progeny, Thy beloved friends. Thou art the most Generous, the most Merciful. O Allah send blessings on the best creature, Muhammad, and on his pious and pure progeny. All praise is for Allah, the lord of the worlds.
My Allah! The Supplication for saving from deviation. English image The angles and the men of wisdom, standing firm for justice too are witness. In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful. Surely, the true religion with Allah is Islam. I am the slave—feeble, sinful,.
I testify to my Benefactor, Creator,. Provider of me with my sustenance, and my Honorer,. He is Omnipotent, Eternal,.
All-knowing, Everlasting,. Ever-living, One and Only,. Self-existent, Endless,. All-hearing, All-Seeing,. Willing, Discriminating,. All-aware, and eternally Besought of all. He is worthy of all these attributes,. He has been always Authority when there was neither sovereignty nor wealth. He has been always Glorious under all circumstances.
His Being is before all precedence in the pre-eternity of sempiternity. His Remaining will be after all endings without any extinction or disappearance. He is self-Sufficient at the beginning and at the end.
There is no injustice in His judgment,. His mercy overtakes His Wrath. None can escape Him when He summons. He covers all logics for His obligatory decrees,. He does not make obedience a burden but according to one's real capacity. All glory be to Him!
How sublime His standing is! How splendid His favors are! He has sent the Prophets in order to show His justice,. He has made us of the community of the Chief of Prophets,. We thus believe in him, in all that to which he has called us,. I also bear witness that the Imams—the pious. Then comes the Argument, Successor, Assumer,. Awaited, Well-guided, and Expected.
Through him, Allah shall fill the earth with equity and justice. I also bear witness that their words are decisive arguments,. They are, moreover, the chiefs of all the inhabitants of Paradise,. I also bear witness that death is certain,. Paradise is certain,. Hellfire is certain,.
O Allah, in Your favor do I put my hope,. Your generosity and mercy do I expect confidently,. I have no single deed by which I deserve Paradise,. I thus seek the Prophet and his Household, Your most-beloved ones, to intercede for me before You;. There is no might and no power except with Allah, the All-high, the All-great. O most Merciful of all those who show mercy,. I am depositing with You this faith of mine and my firmness on this belief;.
You have commanded us to keep safe deposits that are put with us;. O Allah, I seek Your protection against deviation at the hour of death. O Allah, O most Merciful of all those who show mercy,.
