His Supplication in Acts of Wrongdoing

O He from whom is not concealed news of the aggrieved! O He who has no need to be told about them by the witnessing of the witnesses! O He whose help is near to the wronged! O He whose aid is far from the wrongdoers! Thou knowest, my God, how so-and-so, son of so-and-so, has harmed me in that which Thou hast forbidden, and how he has violated me in that which Thou hast prohibited, showing thereby ingratitude toward Thy favor upon him and delusion concerning what Thou hast denied him.

O ALLAH, so bless MUHAMMAD and his Household, keep my wrongdoing enemy from wronging me through Thy strength, blunt his blade toward me through Thy power, and assign to him a diversion in that which is close to him and the inability to reach his enemy! O ALLAH, bless MUHAMMAD and his Household, let the wrongdoer not find it easy to wrong me, give me good help against him, preserve me from the like of his acts, and place me not in the like of his situation! O ALLAH, bless MUHAMMAD and his Household, and assist me with an immediate assistance that will heal my rage toward him and redeem my fury toward him! O ALLAH, bless MUHAMMAD and his Household, compensate me for his wronging me with Thy pardon and replace his evil action toward me with Thy mercy, for every detested thing less than Thy anger is slight and every disaster next to Thy rancor indifferent! just as Thou hast made me detest being wronged, so also protect me from doing wrong! I complain to no one but Thee, and I seek help from no ruler other than Thee how could I? So bless MUHAMMAD and his Household, join my supplication to response, and unite my complaint with change! tempt me not with despair of Thy just treatment and tempt him not with feeling secure from Thy disapproval, lest he persist in wronging me and constrain me in my rights.

Let him soon recognize what Thou hast promised the wrongdoers and let me recognize Thy promised response to the distressed! O ALLAH, bless MUHAMMAD and his Household, give me success in accepting Thy decrees for me and against me, make me pleased with what Thou takest for me and from me, guide me to that which is most upright and employ me in that which is safest! if the best for me with Thee lies in delaying the taking to task for my sake of him who has wronged me and in refraining from vengeance toward him until the Day of Decision and the Gathering of Disputants, then bless MUHAMMAD and his Household, strengthen me from Thee with true intention and lasting patience, give me refuge from evil desire and the impatience of the greedy, and form in my heart the image of Thy reward which Thou hast stored away for me and the repayment and punishment which Thou has prepared for my disputant! Make this a cause of my contentment with what Thou hast decreed and my trust in what Thou hast chosen! Amen, Lord of the worlds! Thou art of bounty abounding and Thou art powerful over everything.
