Sahifah Sajjadiyah, Supplication for Monday

SHAFAQNA (International Shia News Agency)-

In the Name of God, the All-Merciful,

the All-compassionate

1 Praise belongs to God,

who allowed none to witness

when He created the heavens and the earth,

and who took no helper

when He authored the spirits!

2 He has no associate in Divinity

and no support in Unity.

3 Tongues fall silent before the limit of describing Him,

intellects fail before the core of knowing Him,

tyrants fall low in awe of Him,

faces are humbled in fear of Him,291

and everything mighty

yields to His mightiness!

4 So to Thee belongs praise,

again and again, well-measured,

continually, methodically!

5 And may His blessings be upon His Messenger endlessly,

His salutation everlastingly, eternally!

6 O God, make

the beginning of this day of mine righteousness,

its middle prosperity,

and its end success!

I seek refuge in Thee

from a day whose beginning is fright,

whose middle is anxiety,

and whose end is pain!

7 O God,

I pray forgiveness from Thee

for every vow I have vowed,

every promise I have promised,

and every pledge I have pledged

and then failed to keep for Thee.

8 I ask Thee concerning the complaints of Thy servants against me:

If there is a servant from among Thy servants

or a handmaid from among Thy handmaids,

who has against me

a complaint because I have wronged him in respect to


his reputation,

his property,

his wife or his child,

evil words I have spoken about him in his absence,

an imposition upon him through inclination,




false show,


whether he be absent or present,

alive or dead,

such that my hand has fallen short

and my capacity has been too narrow

to make restitution to him

or to annul my obligation to him,

9 I ask Thee,

O He who owns all objects of need

– which are granted by His will

and hasten to His desire –

that Thou blessest Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,

makest [the one I have wronged] satisfied with me

in the manner that Thou willest,

and givest me mercy from Thee!

Forgiveness decreases Thee not

and giving injures Thee not,

O Most Merciful of the merciful!

10 O God,

give me on every Monday two favours from Thee:

the felicity to obey Thee

at its beginning

and the favour of Thy forgiveness

at its end!

O He who is God

and none other than whom grants forgiveness for sins!
