The Ahmadi Religion of Peace & Light

Dua Simaat

Taught by Imam Jafaar Al-Sadiq (pbuh)

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

 

O Allah, I beseech You by Your Name, the most great, most majestic,

 

most magnificent, and most noble;

 

if You are besought thereby to open the closed doors of the sky, they will be opened with Your mercy,

 

if You are besought thereby to remove the narrow doors of the heavens for relief, they will be opened wide,

 

if You are besought thereby to make easy the difficulty, it will be easy,

 

if You are besought thereby to restore the dead to life, they will rise from their graves,

 

if You are besought thereby to remove misery and adversity, they will be removed.

 

I also beseech You in the name of the Majesty of Your Noble Face;

 

the Noblest and most Honored of all faces

 

before Whom all faces bow down in submission,

 

all necks bend down in reverence,

 

all sounds yield,

 

and all hearts tremble out of fear of You.

 

I also beseech You by Your Might

 

by which You prevent the sky from falling on the earth except with Your permission,

 

and control the heavens and the earth so closely that they cannot move away from their positions,

 

by Your Will, which the whole world obeys,

 

by Your Word by which You have created the heavens and the earth,

 

by Your Wisdom with which You have created the wonderful things,

 

created darkness, made it night,

 

made night the time of quiet and rest,

 

created light, made it daylight,

 

made day the time of movement and observation,

 

created the sun, made the sun light,

 

created the moon, made the moon of light,

 

created heavenly bodies,

 

made them fixed stars, planets, lamps for guidance at night, means of decoration, and missiles,

 

created for them east and west,

 

created for them places of ascendancy and orbits,

 

created for them a firmament and spheres,

 

fixed for them stages in the heaven with excellent fixing,

 

shaped the stars with excellent shaping,

 

measured them through Your Names with exact measurement,

 

designed through Your wisdom a system for them with excellent design,

 

controlled the heavenly bodies through the influence of night and the influence of day,

 

and through hours, making them a means for the reckoning of years and counting,

 

and made all people see them alike.

 

I beseech You, O Allah, in the name of Your glory

 

with which You addressed Your servant and Messenger, Moses the son of `Imran (`a) while he was in the company of angels;

 

an address even the favorite cherubim could not ever hear,

 

above the clouds of light,

 

above the box of evidence,

 

within the pillar of fire on Mount Sinai

 

and on Mount Hurith

 

in the Holy Vale

 

in the sacred tract of land

 

to the right of Taurus Mountain through a tree,

 

[and again addressed him] on the land of Egypt, after showing nine clear signs,

 

and on the day You split the sea for the children of Israel,

 

and caused springs to flow from a stone, thereby displaying wonders of Your might in a deep sea,

 

on the day when You solidified the water of the sea in the midst of the storm,

 

caused the children of Israel to pass by the sea,

 

and fulfilled Your excellent promises made to them because of their calm endurance,

 

made them the master of the East and the West in the earth wherein there are blessings for all the worlds,

 

drowned Pharaoh, his armies, and boats in the water.

 

[I beseech You] by Your Name, the great, the Most Great,

 

the Most Honorable, Most Majestic, and Most Noble,

 

and by Your Glory with which You revealed Yourself as light to Moses, Your addressee, peace be on him, on Mount Sinai,

 

and earlier radiated the light for Abraham, Your sincere friend peace be on him, in the Mosque of al-Khif,

 

and for Isaac, Your chosen Prophet, peace be on him, in Shi` Well,

 

and for Your Prophet Jacob, peace be on him, in Bayt «l,

 

and You fulfilled Your promise to Abraham, peace be on him,

 

Your oath in favor of Isaac,

 

Your witnessing favoring Jacob,

 

the fulfillments of Your promise to the faithful believers,

 

and Your Names with which You accepted the prayers of supplicants,

 

and by Your Glory, which appeared to Moses, the son of `Imran, in al-Rumman Dome,

 

and by Your Signs, which appeared in the land of Egypt

 

with great might and victory,

 

with powerful signs,

 

with the display of full command,

 

great power,

 

the affair of the perfect word,

 

and by Your words with which You do a favor to the inhabitants of the skies and the earth

 

and the people of this world and the Next World,

 

and by Your Mercy with which You bestow graces upon all Your creatures,

 

and by Your Power with which You dominate the worlds,

 

and by Your Light through fear of which Mount Sinai collapsed,

 

and by Your Knowledge, Majesty, Greatness, Honor,

 

and Might, which the earth could not bear,

 

the heavens bent down,

 

the great depths restrained themselves,

 

oceans and rivers became stable,

 

mountains yielded,

 

the earth became firm on its shoulders,

 

all creatures surrendered,

 

the winds breathed in their flow,

 

and the flaming fires were extinguished in their places,

 

and by Your authority through which You are acknowledged to have All-powerfulness all the times

 

and for which You are praised in the heavens and the earth,

 

and by Your word, the Word of Truth, which had became mercy for our father Adam and his offspring,

 

and by Your word that overcame everything,

 

and by the light of Your Face, which when You showed to the Mount,

 

You caused it to crush into pieces, whereby Moses fainted and fell down,

 

and by Your Glory, which appeared on Mount Sinai,

 

and through which You addressed Your servant and Messenger, Moses, the son of `Imran,

 

and by Your appearance in Sa`ir,

 

and by Your appearance on Mount Faran on the heights of the holy ones,

 

When the troops of angels were in rows,

 

and with the submissiveness of the angels glorifying You,

 

and by Your blessings by which You honored Abraham, Your sincere friend (`a)

 

among the people of Muhammad, Your blessings be upon him and his household,

 

and You blessed Isaac, Your chosen prophet,

 

among the followers of Jesus, peace be on them both,

 

and You blessed Jacob, Your favored servant,

 

by including him among the followers of Moses, peace be on them both,

 

and blessed Your intimate beloved, Muhammad, may the blessings of Allah be upon him and his Household,

 

in his offspring, offspring, and people.

 

O Allah! Just as we were absent from that but we believe in it honestly and truly,

 

So we beseech You to send Your benedictions upon Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,

 

to bless Muhammad and the household of Muhammad,

 

and to have mercy on Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad

 

with the most auspicious benedictions, blessings, and mercy that You sent to Abraham and the posterity of Abraham.

 

Surely, You are Praiseworthy, Glorious,

 

and Doer of what You will.

 

You are Powerful over all things.

 

 

 

O Allah, in the name of this prayer

 

and in the name of these Names

 

which none knows their exegesis

 

or their implicit meanings save You,

 

(please) send Your blessings upon Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,

 

do to me that of which You are worthy,

 

do not do to me what I deserve,

 

forgive my sins—past and future,

 

increase Your lawful sustenance for me,

 

and save me from the trouble of wicked men,

 

wicked neighbors,

 

wicked companions,

 

and wicked rulers.

 

Verily, You have power over all that You will to do

 

and You have full knowledge of all things.

 

Respond to me, O Lord of the worlds.

 


According to some copies of the supplication, the following statement is added before the latter portion:
O Allah! O All-tender! O Bestower!

 

O Fashioner of the heavens and the earth!

 

O Lord of Majesty and Honor!

 

O most Merciful of all those who show mercy!

 

(O Allah! I beseech You in the name of this prayer)……
 
O Allah! I beseech You in the name of this prayer

 

and in the name of these Names

 

which none knows their exegesis or interpretation

 

and none knows their implicit or explicit meanings save You,

 

to send Your blessings upon Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad

 

and to provide me with the good of this world and the Next World.

 


You may then mention your need and continue as follows:
Do to me that of which You are worthy

 

but do not do to me what I deserve,

 

and exact vengeance from… [so-and-so]

 


You may here mention the name of your enemy
forgive my sins—past and future,

 

forgive my parents and all faithful believers—men and women,

 

increase Your lawful sustenance for me,

 

save me from the troubles of wicked men,

 

wicked neighbors,

 

wicked rulers,

 

wicked companions,

 

evil days,

 

and evil hours,

 

and exact vengeance for me on everyone who hatches secret plots against me,

 

on everyone who oppresses me,

 

seeks to do injustice to me, my wife,

 

my children, my brothers,

 

my neighbors, and my relatives

 

among faithful men and women.

 

Verily, You have power to do whatever You will to do

 

and You have full knowledge of all things.

 

Respond to me, O Lord of the worlds.

 


You may then say the following:
O Allah! In the name of this prayer, I beseech You

 

to grant wealth and affluence to indigent faithful men and women,

 

recovery and wellbeing to the sick faithful men and women,

 

bliss and clemency to the living faithful men and women,

 

remit the sins of, and have mercy on, the deceased faithful men and women,

 

and arrange the return of all faithful travelers with safety and gain,

 

by Your mercy, O Most Merciful of all those who show mercy.

 

May Allah send blessings to our master Muhammad, the Seal of the Prophets, and upon his Household, the purified

 

and send peace upon them in abundant measure.
