Hizb an-Nasr - 1

The Recital of Victory by Shaikh 'Abd al-Qadir
(sanctified be his innermost being).

In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the All-Compassionate.
Bismi'llahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Rahim.

 

 O Allah, O He Whom the eyes do not see,
 Allahumma ya Man la tara-hu 'l-'uyun: 

 and with Whom mere suppositions do not blend,
 wa la tukhalitu-hu 'D-Dunun: 

 and Whom the portrayers do not portray,
 wa la yasifu-hu 'l-wasifun: 

 and Who does not fear misfortunes, 
 wa la yakhafu 'd-dawa'ir: 

 and Who is not destroyed by dire consequences.
 wa la tufni-hi 'l-'awaqib.

 

 He knows the weights of the mountains,
 ya'lamu mathaqila 'l-jibali

 and the measures of the oceans,
 wa maka'ila 'l-bihar: 

 and the number of the drops of rain,
 wa 'adada qatri 'l-amtar: 

 and the number of the leaves on the trees,
 wa 'adada waraqi 'l-ashjar:

 and the number of the things on which the night casts darkness,
 wa 'adada ma aDlama 'alai-hi 'l-lailu

 and on which the day sheds light.
 wa ashraqa 'alai-hi 'n-nahar. 

 

 Not one of the heavens is concealed from Him, nor any earth,
 wa la tuwari min-hu sama'un min sama'in wa la ardun min ardin

 nor any mountain, without His knowing what is in its very depth,
 wa la jibalun illa ya'lamu ma fi qa'ri-ha

 and the heavens and the earth are in submission to His Majesty.
 wa fi 'stikanati 'ADamati-hi 's-samawatu wa 'l-ardu

 

 O Allah, let the best of my work be its final results,
 Allahumma 'j'al khaira 'amali khawatima-hu

 and let the best of my days be the day on which I meet with You.
 wa khaira ayyami yawma alqa-ka fi-h:

 You are indeed Capable of all things.
 inna-ka 'ala kulli shai'in Qadir.

 

 O Allah, if someone is hostile toward me, treat him with hostility.
 Allahumma man 'ada-ni fa-'adi-h:

 If someone deceives me, deceive him.
 wa man kada-ni fa-kid-h:

 If someone puts my life in danger, destroy him.
 wa man bagha 'alayya bi-mahlakatin fa-ahlik-h:

 If someone sets a trap for me, grab hold of him.
 wa man nasaba li fakhkhan fa-khudh-h.

 

 

 Extinguish for me the fire of him who kindles his fire to harm me,
 wa atfi 'an-ni nara man shabba nara-hu 'alayya

 and protect me from what distresses me
 wa 'kfi-ni ma ahamma-ni

 in the business of this world and the Hereafter,
 min amri 'd-dunya wa 'l-akhirati

 and confirm my hope with realization. 
 wa saddiq raja'i bi't-tahqiq. 

 

 O Tender One!  O Gentle One!
 ya Shafiqu ya Rafiq: 

 Relieve me of every hardship,
 farrij 'an-ni kulla diq: 

 and do not burden me with what I cannot bear.
 wa la tuhammil-ni ma la utiq: 

 You are indeed the Worthy Sovereign!
 inna-ka Anta 'l-Maliku 'l-Haqiq. 

 

 O Radiant Source of the Proof!
 ya Mushriqa 'l-Burhan:

 O He of Whom no place is empty, protect me
 ya Man la yakhlu min-hu makanuni 'hrus-ni

 with Your eye that never sleeps,
 bi-'aini-ka 'llati la tanam:

 and shield me with Your shelter
 wa 'knuf-ni bi-kanafi-ka

 and Your pillar, which can never be dislodged.
 wa rukni-ka 'lladhi la yuram

 

 My heart is now fully convinced that there is no god but You,
 inna-hu qad tayaqqana qalbi inna-ka la ilaha illa Anta

 and that I shall not perish while You are with me.
 wa inni la ahliku wa Anta ma'i. 

 

 O All-Merciful One, treat me mercifully with Your power over me!
 ya Rahmanu fa-'rham-ni bi-qudrati-ka 'alayya.

 O Splendid One, looked to in hope by every splendid being!
 ya 'ADiman yurja li-kulli 'aDim:

 O All-Knowing One, O All-Forbearing One!
 ya 'Alimu ya Halim:

 

 You are Aware of my condition,
 wa Anta bi-hali 'Alim:

 and Capable of my salvation, and that is easy for You,
 wa 'ala khalasi Qadir: wa huwa 'alai-ka yasir: 

 so treat me with gracious favor in Your judgment.
 fa-'mnun 'alayya bi-qada'i-k.

 

 O Most Noble of the most noble,
 ya Akrama 'l-akramina

 and O Most Generous of the most generous,
 wa ya Ajwada 'l-ajwadina

 and O Swiftest of the reckoners!
 wa ya Asra'a 'l-hasibin. 

 

 O Lord of All the Worlds and O Most Merciful of the merciful!
 ya Rabba 'l-'alamina wa ya Arhama 'l-arhamin.

 

 O Allah, do not make my life a misery,
 Allahumma la taj'al li-'aishi kadda: 

 and do not cause my plea to be rejected.
 wa la li-du'a'i radda: 

 

 Do not make me a servant to anyone but You,
 wa la taj'al-ni li-ghairi-ka 'abda: 

 and do not plant love in my heart for anything other than You, 
 wa la taj'al fi qalbi li-siwa-ka wudda: 

 for I do not say that You have any counterpart,
 fa-inni la aqulu la-ka diddan

 or any partner or any rival.
 wa la sharikan wa la nidda. 

 

 You are indeed Capable of all things,
 inna-ka 'ala kulli shai'in Qadir.

 and there is no power nor any strength
 wa la hawla wa la quwwata

 except with Allah, the All-High, the Almighty. 
 illa bi'llahi 'l-'Aliyyi 'l-'ADim. 

 

 May Allah bless our master Muhammad and his family
 wa salla 'llahu 'ala sayyidi-na Muhammadin wa 'ala ali-hi

 and his Companions, and may He grant them peace
 wa sahbi-hi wa sallama tasliman

 in great abundance until the Day of Reckoning.
 kathiran ila Yawmi 'd-Din. 

 

 Amin.
