Invocation for the Advent of the Imam of the Age (AS)

In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful

O my Lord! The calamity has aggravated; the absence prolonged;

The curtain of modesty has been lifted; hope has been curtailed;

The earth has been narrow; and sky has been denied.

And You are the One from whom help is sought and complaints are made

And in You we trust in the times of difficulty.

O Allah! Send blessings upon Muhammad (PBUH) and the progeny of Muhammad (PBUH),

The possessors of authority whose obedience you have enjoined upon us

And by that made us aware of their position. Then make open for us, by their truth, an immediate opening, immediate as a wink or sooner.

O Muhammad! O ‘Ali! O ‘Ali! O Muhammad!

Suffice me both of you as both of you are sufficient.

Help me—two of you—for you are my helpers.

O our Master, O Master of the Time!

Help! Help!

Rescue me! Rescue me! Rescue me!

This moment! This moment! This moment!

Hasten, hasten, hasten!

O Most Merciful of the Merciful,

For the sake of Muhammad (PBUH) and his holy progeny.
