Shaykh Kafami in al-balad al amin narrates from Muqatil ibn Sulayman dua by Imam Ali bin Husayn Zayn al abidin (as)
To get immediate acceptance of your supplication, , recite this dua'a 100 times, preferably on Thursday, after praying 2 rakat salat, and 15 durood (salawat) before and at the end of this dua'a, and beseech the almighty Allah to fulfill your legitimate desires, wants and needs.
إِلَهِي كَيْفَ أَدْعُوكَ وَ أَنَا أَنَا وَ كَيْفَ أَقْطَعُ رَجَائِي مِنْكَ وَ أَنْتَ أَنْتَ
elaahi kayfa ad'ooka wa anaa anaa wa kayfa aqta-o’ rajaaee minka wa anta anta
My God how can I call on You (for help) for I am me (a sinful servant)?How can I cut off hope from You for You are You (the merciful lord)?
إِلَهِي إِذَا لَمْ أَسْأَلْكَ فَتُعْطِيَنِي فَمَنْ ذَا الَّذِي أَسْأَلُهُ فَيُعْطِينِي‏
elaahi iz lam as-aloka fa-too-teenee faman zal-lazee as-alohu fayo’teenee
My God (even) when I did not beseech You, You gave me. So who is he who gives if I beseech him?
إِلَهِي إِذَا لَمْ أَدْعُكَ (أَدْعُوكَ) فَتَسْتَجِيبَ لِي فَمَنْ ذَا الَّذِي أَدْعُوهُ فَيَسْتَجِيبُ لِي‏
elaahi iz lam ad-oo’ka fa-tastajeebo lee faman zal lazee ad-oo’ho fa yastajeebo lee
My God (even) when I did not call out, You fulfilled my desire. So who is he who satisfies if I call him?
إِلَهِي إِذَا لَمْ أَتَضَرَّعْ إِلَيْكَ فَتَرْحَمَنِي فَمَنْ ذَا الَّذِي أَتَضَرَّعُ إِلَيْهِ فَيَرْحَمُنِي‏
elaahi iz lam atazarra’ elayka fa tarhamoni faman zal lazee atazarra-o’ elayhe fa yarhamonee
My God (even) when I did not humbly solicit, You took pity on me. So who is he who shows mercy i'll solicit him?
إِلَهِي فَكَمَا فَلَقْتَ الْبَحْرَ لِمُوسَى عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَمُ وَ نَجَّيْتَهُ‏
elaahi fakamaa falaqtal bahra le moosaa a’layhis salaamo wa najjaytahu
My God I beseech You that just as You parted asunder the sea for Musa (peace be on him) to save him,
أَسْأَلُكَ أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ‏
as-aloka an tosalle a’laa mohammadin wa aale mohammadin
send blessings on Muhammad and on the children of Muhammad,
وَ أَنْ تُنَجِّيَنِي مِمَّا أَنَا فِيهِ وَ تُفَرِّجَ عَنِّي فَرَجاً عَاجِلاً غَيْرَ آجِلٍ
wa an tonajjeyanee mimmaa anaa feehe wa tafarreja a’nnee farajan a’aajelan ghaira aajelin
and come to my rescue, and deliver me (from these troubles), and disperse (afflictions), and do it quickly, without delay,
بِفَضْلِكَ وَ رَحْمَتِكَ يَا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ
be fazleka wa be rahmateka yaa arhamar raahemeen.
through Your kindness, through Your mercy, O the most merciful.
