be on you, O Abu Abdullah!
be on you, O son of the Apostle of Allah!
be on you, O son of the commander of the faithfuls, the
forebear of the successors!
be on you, O son of Fatimah, the choicest among the women of
be on you, O the select, surpassing, chosen in preference over
all good of Allah, and son of Allah's (such) good.
be on you, who was martyred while fighting heroically in the
cause of Allah, the son of Allah's fearless warrior, you were
isolated and had been attacked with a vengeance!
be on you and on those souls who had gathered in your camp,
and strided along with you, in your journey. I pray and invoke
Allah to keep all of you tranquil and restful, for ever; so
far I am alive, this is my prayer, and till nights and days
follow each other.
Abu Abdullah! Unbearable is the sorrow, nerve-racking is the
agony, you put up with, for
us and for all the (true) Muslims, crimes committed against
you also shocked and unnerved the dwellers of the heavens, one
Allah condemn and damn the people who laid the basis and set
up the groundwork,
wander astray and turn aside from not only you and your family
but to take liberties and bear hard upon you.
Allah condemn and damn the people who tried to obscure and
deny your office and status, willfully neglected your rank and
class Allah had made know in clear terms. May Allah condemn
and damn the people who killed you.
Allah condemn and damn the abettors who instigated and had a
part in your murder. I turn to you and Allah, away from them,
their henchmen, their followers and their friends,
Abu Abdullah, I pray and invoke Allah to send blessings on
you. I make peace with those who make their peace with you,
make war on those who go to war against you, till the Day of
Allah condemn and damn the family of Ziyaad and the family of
Allah condemn and damn the group and the tribe of Umayyah, one
and all, altogether;
Allah condemn and damn the son of Marjaanah;
Allah condemn and damn Umar son of Saad;
Allah condemn and damn Shimr;
Allah condemn and damn the people who bridled the horses and
errected the saddles for your martyrdom. I, my father and
mother are at your disposal. Profound is my sorrow for you. I
beg Allah, who honoured you above others, to be generous
towards me on account of you, and give me the opportunity to
be with the victorious Imam, the descendent of Mohammad
(blessings and peace be on him and on his children from Allah)
at the time of the final and decisive war against Allah's
my Allah make me attend to Your cause, sincerely, in every
respect following in Husayn's footsteps, in this world and the
O Abu Abdullah, I pray and invoke Allah to send
blessings on you. I come nearer and seek greater intimacy with
Allah, with His Apostle, with Ameerul Moomineen, with Fatimah,
with Hasan and with you, with the help of your love and
patronage, cutting off every connection with those who took up
arms against you and killed you. I disconnect all links with
those who, in the beginning, took the first steps to take
liberties with and bear hard upon you, I take refuge with
Allah and His Apostle (blessings of Allah be on him and on his
children), free from the guilt of associating with those who
laid the foundation for (your suffering), devised and carried
out their corrupt plan of action, boldly gave currency to
reign of terror and cruelty to oppress you and your friends
and followers; I detach myself from them and present myself to
Allah and to you, I (first) seek greater intimacy with Allah
and then with you to win your love and patronage, and to make
friends with your friends, cut off all links with your
enemies, and with those who planted the seeds of hostility
against you, and reject and discard their associates, their
followers and their friends. I make peace with those who made
their peace with you, I search out and confront those who
waged war against you, I make friends with those who stood by
you, I strive against those who came in conflict with you,
therefore, I make a request to Allah to acquaint (me) with the
awareness that perceives you and your friends, to set me free
from the corrupting influence of your enemies, to make me keep
company with you in this would and in the Hereafter, stand
firm beside you and follow your footsteps closely in this
world and in the next world. I beseech Him that he helps me to
reach your highly praised station, given to you by Allah, (to
meet you), that He provides me the opportunity to fight for
justice and fairplay alongwith and under the leadership of the
rightly guided guide (in your progeny) who surely will come
and speak the truth. I beseech Allah in the name of your right
and the purpose He assigned to you, that He overwhelms me with
grief in memory of your sorrows, more than the personal grief
that torments any one who is in great agony, sorrows which
have no parallel and overshadow all calamities that took place
in the history of Islam, for that matter, through out the
my Allah, in my on the spot situation, treat me like him (or
her) who obtains from You
blessings, mercy and forgiveness.
my Allah, bring me to life again, after death, in the place
Mohammad and his "Aal" (children) are dwelling, and
make me depart from this world like Mohammad and his "Aal"
(children) had left,
my Allah this day is a day of rejoicing for the "Bani
Umayyah", the herd of hardened criminals, the eternally
damned and accursed group, a fact that had been made public by
You and by Your Prophet (blessings of Allah be on him and on
his children), who, in every place and at all occasions, drew
attention of people to this truism.
my Allah condemn and damn Abu Sufyaan, Yazid son of
Muwa'awiyah and let it be an everlasting curse upon tem from
You. Today the descendants of Ziyaad and Marwan make merry,
laugh and dance because on this day they killed Husayn
(blessings of Allah be on him).
my Allah, therefore, double up the curse You brings upon them
and also the punishment You decrees for them.
my Allah, I seek nearness to You today in this frame of mind,
cutting off all links with them for the rest of my life,
denouncing them because of my love for Your Prophet and his
children, peace be on him and them.
again say 100 times:
my Allah condemn and damn the first tyrant who unjustly and
wrongfully usurped that which rightly belonged to Mohammad and
the children of Mohammad, and bring curse upon those who,
after him, followed in his footsteps.
my Allah condemn and damn those conspirators who vexed and
harassed Husayn, showed eagerness, agreed mutually, and joined
hands to kill him. O my Allah bring curse upon all of them.
again say 100 times:
be on you, O Abu Abdullah, and on those souls who came to your
camp to put themselves at your disposal.
far I am alive and the days and nights follow each other I
invoke Allah to send blessings on you for ever and ever.
Allah not make my this pledge of close association, physical
as well as spiritual, with you the last fulfillment.
be on Husayn, and on Ali son of Husayn, and on the children of
Husayn, and on the friends of Husayn.
my Allah, let the curse I call down on the head of the first
tyrant stick like a leech; and stay put for ever on the first,
then the second, the third and the fourth.
my Allah damn and call down evil on the fifth, Yazid son of
Mua'awyah, and bring a curse upon Ubaydullah son of Ziyaad,
ibna Marjanah, Umar son of Saad, and Shimr, and on the
descendants of Abu Sufyaan, on the descendants of Ziyaad, on
the descendants of Marwaan, till the Day of judgement.

my Allah! (All) praise is for You (alone); praise of the
"Ever-thankful to You", who glorify You whatever
come to pass. (All) praise is for Allah for my deep-felt
O my Allah make available for me the
recommendations of Husayn on the day I present myself before
You, let me stand firm in safety before You on account of my
sincere attachment with Husayn, along with him and his
comrades, who sacrificed everything they had (heart, mind,
soul and life) for Husayn, peace be on him.
