أَللّٰهُمَّ اقْسِمْ لَنَا مِنْ خَشْيَتِكَ مَا يَحُولُ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَ مَعْصِيَـتِكَ، وَمِنْ طَاعَتِكَ مَا تُبَلِّغْـنَا بِهِ جَنَّتَكَ وَمِنَ الْيَقِينِ مَا يُهَوِّنُ عَلَيْـنَا مِنْ مَصَائِبِ الدُّنْـيَا، وَمَتِّعْـنَا بَأَسْمَاعِنَا وَأَبْصَارِنَا وَانْصُرْنَا عَلـى مَنْ عَادَانَا، وَلاَ تَجْعَلِ الدُّنْـيَا أَكْبَرَ هَمِّنَا، وَلاَ تُسَلِّطْ عَلَيْـنَا مَنْ لاَ يَرْحَمُنَا. أَللّٰهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ وَإِلَيْكَ الْمُشْـتَكى وَأَنْتَ الْمُسْتَعَانُ، وَفِيمَا عِنْدَكَ مِنَ الرَّغْبَةِ وَلَدَيْكَ غَايَةُ الْطَّلِبَةِ. أَللّٰهُمَّ آمِنْ رَوْعَتِي وَاسْـتُرْ عَوْرَتِي. أَللّٰهُمَّ أَصْلِحْ دِينَـنَا الَّذِي هُوَ عِصْمَةُ أَمْرِنَا، وَأَصْلِحْ لَنَا دُنْـيَانَا الَّتِي فِيهَا مَعَاشُنَا، وَأَصْلِحْ آخِرَتَـنَا الَّتِي إِلَيْهَا مُنْقَـلَـبُنَا وَاجْعَلِ الْحَيَاةَ زِيَادَةً لَنَا فِي كُلِّ خَيْرٍ، وَالْوَفَاةَ رَاحَةً لَنَا مِنْ كُلِّ سُوءٍ. أَللّٰهُمَّ إِنَّا نَسْأَلُكَ مُوْجِـبَاتِ رَحْمَتِكَ وَعَزَائِمَ مَغْفِرَتِكَ وَالْغَنِيمَةَ مِنْ كُلِّ بِرٍّ وَالسَّلاَمَةَ مِنْ كُلِّ إِثْمٍ، يَا مَوْضِعَ كُلِّ شَكْوى، وَشَاهِدَ كُلِّ نَجْوى، وَكَاشِفَ كُلِّ بَلْوى، فَإِنَّكَ تَرى وَلاَ تُرى، وَأَنْتَ بِالْمَـنْظَرِ الأَعَلـى. أَسْأَلُكَ الْجَنَّةَ وَمَا يُقَرِّبُ إِلَيْهَا مِنْ قَوْلٍ أَوْ فِعْلٍ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنَ النَّارِ وَمَا يُقَرِّبُ إِلَيْهَا مِنْ قَوْلٍ أَوْ فِعْلٍ. أَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ خَيْرَ الْخَيْرِ رِضْوَانَكَ وَالْجَنَّةَ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شِرِّ الشَّرِّ سَخَطُكَ وَالنَّارُ. أَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ خَيْرَ مَا تَعْلَمُ وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا تَعْلَمُ، فَإِنَّكَ أَنْتَ عَلاَّمُ الْغُيُوبِ.

O All¡h! All praise be to You. To You does the complainer refer and You are the Helper; You have what is desired and with You lies the end of all wishes. O All¡h! Calm my fear and hide my faults. O All¡h! Make right our religion which is the protection for our affairs, and make right our world for it is the place wherein we live, and make right our hereafter for it is our eventual destination; and make the life (in this world) more for us in every good, and make death a relief for us from every evil. O All¡h! I beseech You for all that which is the cause of Your Mercy, and that which ascertains Your Forgiveness; and benefit from every virtue, and safety from every sin. O One to whom all complain! O Witness of all secret communications! O Reliever of all troubles! Verily You see but cannot be seen, and You are in the highest viewpoint; I beg You for paradise and whatever brings me closer to it from words and actions, and I seek Your protection from the hellfire and whatever brings me closer to it from words and actions. O All¡h! I beseech You for the best of Your good pleasure and paradise, and I seek Your protection from the worst of Your wrath and the hellfire. O All¡h! I ask for the good that You know and seek protection from the evil that You know, for verily You are the knower of the unseen.[v]

O All¡h XE "All¡h" ! I seek Your protection from wealth that causes me to transgress, and from poverty that makes me forget (Your bounties), and from the desire that ruins me, and from the action that disgraces me and from the neighbor who disturbs me.[vii]

106. Also: From his 9 supplications:

أَللّٰهُمَّ اجْعَلْنَا مَشْغُولِينَ بِأَمْرِكَ، آمِنِينَ بِوَعْدِكَ، آيِسِينَ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ، آنِسِينَ بِكَ، مُسْـتَوْحِشِينَ مِنْ غَيْرِكَ، رَاضِينَ بِقَضَائِكَ، صَابِرِينَ عَلـى بَلاَئِكَ، شَاكِرِينَ عَلـى نِعْمَائِكَ، مُتَلَذِّذِينَ بِذِكْرِكَ، فَرِحِينَ بِكِتَابِكَ، مُنَاجِينَ إِيَّاكَ آنَاءَ اللَّيْلِ وَأَطْرَافَ النَّهَارِ، مُسْـتَعِدِّينَ لِلْمَوْتِ، مُشْتَاقِينَ إِلـى لِقَائِكَ، مُبْغِضِينَ لِلدُّنْيَا، مُحِبِّينَ لِلآخِرَةِ، وَآتِنَا مَا وَعَدْتَنَا عَلـى رُسُلِكَ، وَلاَ تُخْزِنَا يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ إِنَّكَ لاَ تُخْلِفُ الْمِيعَادِ.

O All¡h XE "All¡h" ! Make us occupied in following Your commandments, trust in Your promise, lose hope in Your creation, become close with You, feel repelled by other than You, are pleased with Your decree, patient with Your trials, thankful for Your blessings, enjoy Your remembrance, are happy with Your book, whisper to You in the darkness of the night and the light of day, are ready for death, crave for meeting with You, hate this world and love the hereafter; and grant us what You have promised us by Your prophets and do not disgrace us on the Day of Resurrection, surely You do not break Your promises.[viii]

O All¡h XE "All¡h" ! All praise is for You in the seven years of hardship, and for You is all praise in the wide expanse of the earth, and all praise is for You as much as the ability of the servants, and all praise is for You up to the limits of the land, and all praise is for You in the mountains that act as pegs, and all praise is for You in the night when it draws a veil, and all praise is for You in the day when it shines in brightness, and all praise is for You in the hereafter and the former, and all praise is for You in the Seven Oft-repeated Verses and the Glorious Qur`¡n.

You are the One to whom we complain, and You are the goal of our desires, and our Lord and our Master.”[ix]

أَللّٰهُمَّ اجْعَلْهَا نِعْمَةً مَحْصُورَةً مَشْكُورَةً مَوْصُولَةً بِالْجَنَّةِ.

أَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ وَلَدٍ يَكُونُ عَلَيَّ رِباًّ، وَمِنْ مَالٍ يَكُونُ عَلَيَّ ضِيَاعاً، وَمِنْ زَوْجَةٍ تُشَيِّبَنِي قَبْلَ أَوَانِ مَشِيبَتِي، وَمِنْ خَلِيلٍ مَاكِرٍ عَيْنَاهُ تَرَانِي وَقَلْـبُهُ يَرْعَانِي، إِنْ رَأى خَيْراً دَفَنَهُ، وَإِنْ رَأى شَرّاً أَذَاعَهُ، وَأَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ وَجْعِ الْبَطْنِ.

O All¡h XE "All¡h" ! I seek Your protection from a son who subjugates me, and from wealth that is the cause of my ruin, and from the wife who makes me old before my time, and from the conspiring friend whose eyes see me but his heart envies me - if he sees any good (action from me) he conceals it and if he sees any bad he spreads it; and I seek Your protection from the pain of the stomach.[xii]

111. In al-Muhaj: From the supplications of the Noble Prophet XE "Noble Prophet"  9:

أَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ أَنْ أَفْتَقِرُ فِي غِنَاكَ، أَوْ أَضِلَّ فِي هُدَاكَ، أَوْ أَذِّلَ فِي عِزِّكَ، أَوْ أُضَامَ فِي سُلْطَانِكَ، أَوْ أَضْطَهِدَ وَالأَمْرُ إِلَيْكَ. أَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ أَنْ أَقُولَ زُوراً، أَوْ أَغْشى فُجُوراً، أَوْ أَكُونَ بِكَ مَغْرُوراً.

O All¡h XE "All¡h" ! I seek Your protection from becoming poor in Your Wealth, or going astray in Your Guidance, or becoming abased in Your Exaltedness, or getting treated unjustly in Your Dominion, or being persecuted while all affairs return to You. O All¡h! I seek Your protection from speaking lies, or being immoral, or being arrogant in front of You.[xiii]
