اَللّٰھُمَّ یَامُذِلَّ کُلِّ جَبَّارٍ وَیَا مُعِّزَ الْمُؤْمِنِیْنَ اَنْتَ کَھْفِی حِیْنَ تُعْیِیْنِیْ الْمَذَاھِبُ وَاَنْتَ بَارِیُٔ خَلْقِی رَحْمَۃً بِیْ وَقَدْ کُنْتَ عَنْ خَلْقِی غَنِیًّا وَلَوْلَا رَحْمَتُکَ لَکُنْتُ مِنَ الْھَالِکِیْنَ وَاَنْتَ مُؤَیِّدِی بِالنَّصْرِ عَلٰی اَعْدَآئِیْ وَلَوْلَا نَصْرُکَ اِیَّایَ لَکُنْتُ مِنَ الْمَفْضُوْحِیْنَ یَامُرْسِلَ الرَّحْمَۃِ مِنْ مَعَادِنِھَا وَمُنْشِیْئَ الْبَرَکَۃِ مِنْ مَوَاضِعِھَا یَامَنْ خَصَّ نَفْسَہُ بِالشُّمُوْخِ وَالرَّفْعَۃِ فَاَوْلِیَآؤُہُ بِعِزِّہِ یَتَعَزَّزُونَ وَیَامَنْ وَضَعَتْ لَہُ الْمُلُوکُ نِیْرَ الْمَذَلَّۃِ عَلٰٓی اَعْنَاقِھِمْ فَھُمْ مِنْ سَطَوَاتِہٖ خَآئِفُونَ اَسْئَلُکَ بِکَیْنُوْنِیَّتِکَ الَّتِی اشْتَقَقْتَھَا مِنْ کِبْرِیَآئِکَ وَاَسْئَلُکَ بِکِبْرِیَآئِکَ الَّتِی اشْتَقَقْتَھَا مِنْ عِزَّتِکَ وَاَسْئَلُکَ بِعِزَّتِکَ الَّتِی اسْتَوَیْتَ بِھَا عَلٰی عَرْشِکَ فَخَلَقْتَ بِھَا جَمِیْعَ خَلْقِکَ فَھُمْ لَکَ مُذْعِنُوْنَ اَنْ تُصَلِّیَ عَلٰی مُحَمَّدٍ وَاَھْلِ بَیْتِہِ۔


O Allah, O He Who humiliates all the tyrants! O He Who dignifies the believers! Verily, You are my Shelter when all courses mislead me and You are the Maker of my creation out of Your having mercy upon me, while You have never needed to create me. Were it not for Your mercy, I would be of those who perish. You are my backer against my enemies, and were it not for Your support, I would be of those who are exposed. O He Who sends mercy from its origin! O He Who originates blessings from their centers! O He Who has given Himself exclusively disdain and elevation; therefore, His saints feel dignified out of His Honor! O He for Whom all kings have put the yoke of humiliation on their necks; they are therefore fearful of His supremacy! I pray You in the name of Your Entity from which You have derived Your Pride, I pray You in the name of Your Pride from which You have derived Your Dignity, I pray You in the name of Your Dignity by which You have been firmly established on the throne of authority; so, You have created all Your creatures who are, as a result, submissive to You. [I pray You to] send blessings to Muhammad and upon his Household.
