The prayer of Imam al-°usayn (`a), the Chief of Martyrs, on the `Araf¡t Day is one of the famous prayers. Bishr and Bash¢r, the sons of Gh¡lib al-Asad¢, narrated that they, once, accompanied Imam al-°usayn (`a) at the `Araf¡t Night when he left his tent with submission and reverence. He walked slowly until he, accompanied by a group of his household, sons, and servants, stopped at the left side of Mount `Araf¡t and turned his face towards the Holy Ka`bah. He then raised his hands (for supplication) to the level of his face, just like a poor man begging food, and said:
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
O Allah, (please do) send blessings to Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
Imam al-°usayn (`a) then repeated y¡-rabbi so frequently and effectively that he attracted the attentions of all the others who, instead of praying for granting their needs, surrounded Imam al-°usayn (`a) to listen to him and pray for the response of his supplication. Then, they wept with him. At sunset, they left Mount `Araf¡t with him.
This is the end of Imam al-°usayn’s supplicatory prayer on the `Araf¡t Day according to the narrations of al-Kaf`am¢ in his book of al-Balad al-Am¢n and `All¡mah al-Majlis¢ in his book of Z¡d al-Ma`¡d. As for Sayyid Ibn ±¡w£s, he, in his book of Iqb¡l al-A`m¡l, adds the following statements to the supplicatory prayer:
إِلٰهِي انَا ٱلْفَقِيرُ فِي غِنَايَ
il¡h¢ an¡ alfaq¢ru f¢ ghin¡ya
O my God, I am needy despite my richness;
فَكَيْفَ لا اكُونُ فَقِيراً فِي فَقْرِي؟
fakayfa l¡ ak£nu faq¢ran f¢ faqr¢
so, how can I not be needy in my neediness?
إِلٰهِي انَا ٱلْجَاهِلُ فِي عِلْمِي
il¡h¢ an¡ alj¡hilu f¢ `ilm¢
O my God, I am ignorant despite my knowledge;
فَكَيْفَ لاَ اكُونُ جَهُولاً فِي جَهْلِي؟
fakayfa l¡ ak£nu jah£lan f¢ jahl¢
so, how can I not be ignorant in my ignorance?
إِلٰهِي إِنَّ ٱخْتِلاَفَ تَدْبِيرِكَ
il¡h¢ inna ikhtil¡fa tadb¢rika
O my God, the variety of Your regulating of matters
وَسُرْعَةَ طَوَاءِ مَقَادِيرِكَ
wa sur`ata §aw¡’i maq¡d¢rika
and the swiftness of changes in Your ordainments
مَنَعَا عِبَادَكَ ٱلْعَارِفِينَ بِكَ
mana`¡ `ib¡daka al`¡rif¢na bika
have urged Your servants, who recognize You,
عَنِ ٱلسُّكُونِ إِلَىٰ عَطَاءٍ
`an alssk£ni il¡ `a§¡’in
not to stop at a certain gift
وَٱلْيَاسِ مِنْكَ فِي بَلاَءٍ
Walya’si minka f¢ bal¡’in
and not to despair of You in tribulations.
إِلٰهِي مِنِّي مَا يَلِيقُ بِلُؤْمِي
il¡h¢ minn¢ m¡ yal¢qu bilu’m¢
O my God, coming out of me is that which fits my lowliness;
وَمِنْكَ مَا يَلِيقُ بِكَرَمِكَ
wa minka m¡ yal¢qu bikaramika
but coming from You is that which befits Your nobleness.
