99. In Ibn ±¡w£s’s Muh¡sabat al-Nafs, from the book of al-Rab¢’ from Mu¦ammad XE "Mu¦ammad"  al-Mustak¢n: In his narration from ‘Ab¢ Ja~far D who said: When the redness of the sun reached the peak of the mountain, tears would flow from the Noble Prophet XE "Holy Prophet" ’s 9 eyes and he would say:

أَللّٰهُمَّ أَمسى ظُلْمِي مُسْتَجِيراً بِعَفْوِكَ، وَأَمْسَتْ ذُنُوبِي مُسْتَجِيراً بِمَغْفِرَتِكَ، وَأَمْسى خَوْفِي مُسْتَجِيراً بِأَمْنِكَ، وَأَمْسى ضَعْفِي مُسْتَجِيراً بِقُوَّتِكَ، وَأَمْسى وَجْهِيَ الْبَالِيَ الْفَانِي مُسْتَجِيراً بِوَجْهِكَ الْدَائِمِ الْبَاقِي، أَلْبِسْنِي عَافِيَتَكَ، وَغَشِّنِي بِرَحْمَتِكَ، وَجَلِّلْنِي كَرَامَتَكَ، وَقِنِي شَرَّ خَلْقِكَ مِنَ الْجِنِّ وَالإِنْسِ  يَـا اللّٰهُ ياَ رَحْمٰنُ ياَ رَحِيمُ.

O All¡h XE "All¡h" ! The day has come while my oppression has sought refuge in Your Forgiveness, and my sins have sought refuge in Your Pardon, my fear has sought refuge in Your Security, my weakness has sought refuge in Your Strength and my transient existence has sought refuge in Your Everlasting Existence. Grant me well-being, and cover me with Your Mercy, and honor me with Your Nobleness, and keep me safe from the evil of Your creation, from the jinn and man. O All¡h! O Compassionate! O Merciful![i]


[i] Mu¦¡sabat al-Nafs: 30
