Awakening the Soul

Sunday, January 21, 2007

As a mark of respect for Hussein ibn Ali (as) and for all those who lost their lives on that tragic morning of 10th Muharrem I will not be posting any new posts for 40 days.
However I will leave you with one final prayer, recited by Imam Hussein himself on the morning his precious soul departed this world.

O God, I put my trust in You in every tribulation.
You are my hope in every distress.

You are my trust and provider in every affair that falls upon me
Regardless of how much the heart may weaken, strategies fail,
Friends abandon and the enemy joyfully celebrate.

I have desired it under Your kingdom;
I complain to You out of my desire for You alone and none else.
Give me relief and dispel the calamity for You are the Master of all bounties,
the Owner of all benevolence and the Ultimate Destination of all desires.
