Wednesday Dua of Imam Zainul Abideen (peace be upon him)


بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
bismillahi alrrahmani alrrahimi
In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.
اَلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ ٱلَّذِي جَعَلَ ٱللَّيلَ لِبَاساً
alhamdu lillahi alladhi ja`ala allayla libasan
All praise be to Allah Who appointed the night to be a garment,
وَٱلنَّوْمَ سُبَاتاً
walnnawma subatan
and sleep for a rest,
وَجَعَلَ ٱلنَّهَارَ نُشُوراً
wa ja`ala alnnahara nushuran
and day He appointed for a rising!
لَكَ ٱلْحَمْدُ أَنْ بَعَثْتَنِي مِنْ مَرْقَدِي
laka alhamdu an ba`athtani min marqadi
To You belongs praise, for You roused me from my sleep,
وَلَوْ شِئْتَ جَعَلْتَهُ سَرْمَداً
wa law shi'ta ja`altahu sarmadan
and had You willed, You would have made it everlasting;
حَمْداً دَائِماً لاَ يَنْقَطِعُ اَبَداً
hamdan da'iman la yanqati`u abadan
an endless praise that will never be cut off
وَلاَ يُحْصِي لَهُ ٱلخَلائِقُ عَدَداً
wa la yuhsi lahu alkhala'iqu `adadan
and whose number the creatures will never count!
اَللَّهُمَّ لَكَ ٱلْحَمْدُ أَنْ خَلَقْتَ فَسَوَّيْتَ
allahumma laka alhamdu an khalaqta fasawwayta
O Allah, to You belongs praise, for You created, then fashioned,
وَقَدَّرْتَ وَقَضَيْتَ
wa qaddarta wa qadayta
ordained and decreed,
وَ أَمَتَّ وَ أَحْيَيْتَ
wa amatta wa ahyayta
gave death and bestowed life,
وَ أَمْرَضْتَ وَشَفَيْتَ
wa amradta wa shafayta
made sick and healed,
وَعَافَيْتَ وَ أَبْلَيْتَ
wa `afayta wa ablayta
made well and afflicted,
وَعَلَىٰ ٱلْعَرْشِ ٱسْتَوَيْتَ
wa `ala al`arshi istawayta
established the Throne
وَعَلَىٰ ٱلْمُلْكِ ٱحْتَوَيْتَ
wa `ala almulki ihtawayta
and encompassed the Kingdom!
أَدْعُوكَ دُعَاءَ مَنْ ضَعُفَتْ وَسِيلَتُهُ
ad`uka du`a'a man da`ufat wasilatuhu
I supplicate You with the supplication of one whose mediation is weak,
وَٱنْقَطَعَتْ حِيلَتُهُ
wanqata`at hilatuhu
whose stratagems have been cut off,
وَٱقْتَرَبَ أَجَلُهُ
waqtaraba ajaluhu
whose term has drawn near,
وَتَدَانَىٰ فِي ٱلدُّنْيَا أَمَلُهُ
wa tadana fi alddunya amaluhu
whose expectation from this world has shrunk,
وَٱشْتَدَّتْ إِلَىٰ رَحْمَتِكَ فَاقَتُهُ
wa ishtaddat ila rahmatika faqatuhu
whose neediness for Your mercy has intensified,
وَعَظُمَتْ لِتَفْرِيطِهِ حَسْرَتُهُ
wa `azumat litafritihi hasratuhu
whose remorse for his neglect has become great,
وَكَثُرَتْ زَلَّتُهُ وَعَثْرَتُهُ
wa kathurat zallatuhu wa `athratuhu
whose slips and stumbles have become many,
وَخَلُصَتْ لِوَجْهِكَ تَوْبَتُهُ
wa khalusat liwajhika tawbatuhu
and whose repentance is devoted sincerely to Your face.
فَصَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ
fasalli `ala muhammadin
So, bless Muhammad,
خَاتَمِ النَّبِيّينَ
khatami alnnabiyyina
the Seal of the Prophets,
وَعَلَىٰ أَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ ٱلطَّيِّبِينَ ٱلطَّاهِرِينَ
wa `ala ahli baytihi alttayyibina alttahirina
and his Household, the good, the pure,
وَٱرْزُقْنِي شَفَاعَةَ مُحَمَّدٍ
warzuqni shafa`ata muhammadin
and provide me with the intercession of Muhammad,
صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ
salla allahu `alayhi wa alihi
Allah bless him and his Household,
وَلاَ تَحْرِمْنِي صُحْبَتَهُ
wa la tahrimni suhbatahu
and deprive me not of his companionship!
إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ أَرْحَمُ ٱلرَّاحِمِينَ
innaka anta arhamu arrahimina
Surely, You are the Most Merciful of all those who show mercy!
اَللَّهُمَّ ٱقْضِ لِي فِي ٱلأَرْبِعَاءِ اَرْبَعاً
allahumma iqdi li fil-arbu`a'i arba`an
O Allah, decree for me on Wednesday four things:
إِجْعَلْ قُوَّتِي فِي طَاعَتِكَ
ij`al quwwati fi ta`atika
Induce me to be strong in obedience to You,
وَنَشَاطِي فِي عِبَادَتِكَ
wa nashati fi `ibadatika
to be active in worshiping You,
وَرَغْبَتِي فِي ثَوَابِكَ
wa raghbati fi thawabika
to be desirous for Your reward,
وَزُهْدِي فِيمَا يُوجِبُ لِي أَلِيمَ عِقَابِكَ
wa zuhdi fima yujibu li alima `iqabika
and to abstain from that which would make incumbent upon me Your painful punishment!
إِنَّكَ لَطِيفٌ لِمَا تَشَاءُ
innaka latifun lima tasha'u
You are Gentle to whom You will!

Dua of Sayyeda Fatima (peace be upon her) for Wednesday


اَللّٰهُمَّ احْرُسْنَا بِعَيْنِكَ الَّتِيْ لَا تَنَامُ،
allaahummah rusnaa be-a’ynekal latee laa tanaamo
O God, protect us through the eyes that never sleep
وَ رُكْنِكَ الَّذِيْ لَا يُرَامُ،
wa ruknekal lazee laa yoraamo,
and through that support, which no one can reach.
وَ بِاَسْمَائِكَ الْعِظَامِ،
wa be-asmaa-ekal e’zaame,
And through your great names,
وَ صَلِّ عَلٰى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ اٰلِهٖ،
wa salle a’laa mohammadin wa aalehi,
O God, have mercy on Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad
وَ احْفَظْ عَلَيْنَا مَا لَوْ حَفِظَهٗ
wah faz a’laynaa maa law hafezahu
and keep this faith of ours safe. Which if it had been secured by anyone else, it would have been destroyed
غَيْرُكَ ضَاعَ وَ اسْتُرْ عَلَيْنَا مَا لَوْ سَتَرَهٗ
ghayroka zaa-a’ was tur a’laynaa maa law satarahu ghayroka shaa-a’,
And conceal our defect. If anyone other than You had concealed them, they would have been divulged
غَيْرُكَ شَاعَ، وَ اجْعَلْ كُلَّ ذٰلِكَ لَنَا مِطْوَاعًا اِنَّكَ سَمِيْعُ الدُّعَاءِ،
waj a’l kulla zaaleka lanaa mitwaa-a’n innaka samee-u’d do-a’a-e,
and make all those things subservient to us, as indeed You are the one, who hears the supplications,
قَرِيْبٌ مُجِيْبٌ.‏
qareebun mojeebun.
nearest to the servants and one who accepts their plea.
