Hizb an-Nasr - 2

Another Recital of Victory [Hizb an-Nasr]
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, I beg You to grant me immersion in the ocean of the light
 Allahumma as'alu-ka ghamsatan fi bahri nuri

 of Your compelling Dignity, outwardly and inwardly potent and powerful,
 Haibati-ka 'l-qahirati 'D-Dahirati 'l-batinati 'l-qadirati 'l-muqtadira:

 until my face is aglow with rays from the light of Your Dignity. 
 hatta yatala'la'a wajhi bi-shu'a'atin min nuri Haibati-k.

 

 It will dazzle the eyes of the envious, the rebellious and the devils,
 takhtafu 'uyuna 'l-hasadati wa 'l-maradati wa 'sh-shayatin: 

 among all of mankind and the jinn,
 mina 'l-insi wa 'l-jinni ajma'in: 

 so they cannot strike me with the arrows of their envy,
 fa-la yarshuqu-ni bi-sihami hasadi-him

 and with their inner and outer intrigues,
 wa maka'idi-hum 'l-batinati wa 'D-Dahirati

 and so their eyes are ashamed to look at me,
 wa tasiru absaru-hum khashi'atan li-ru'yati

 and their necks are bowed before my onslaught. 
 wa riqabu-hum khadi'atan li-satwati.

 

 Shield me, O Allah, with the shield of which
 wa 'hjub-ni Allahumma bi'l-hijabi 'lladhi

 the inner side is radiant light, so that my spiritual states
 batinu-hu 'n-nuru

 are beautified by its intimate friendship,
 fa-tabtahiju ahwali bi-unsi-hi

 and my words and my deeds are fortified by its touch,
 wa tata'ayyadu aqwali wa af'ali bi-hissi-hi

 and of which the outer side is fire,
 wa Dahiru-hu 'n-naru

 so that it scorches the faces of my foes
 fa-talfahu wujuha a'da'i

 with a scorching that cuts their desires off from me,
 lafhatan taqta'u mawadda-hum 'an-ni

 until they turn away from their objectives, as outcasts,
 hatta tusaddu 'an mawaridi-him khasi'ina

 losers and failures, disgraced and abased and humiliated.
 khasirina khashi'ina khadi'ina mutadhallilina

 

 They will turn their backs and lay waste to the lands,
 yuwalluna 'l-adbara wa yukharribuna 'd-diyara

 and ruin their homes with their own hands
 wa yukharribuna buyuta-hum bi-aidi-him

 and the hands of the believers.
 wa aidi 'l-mu'minin.

 

 I also beg You for the light that acts as a shield
 wa as'alu-ka 'n-nura 'lladhi 'htajaba bi-hi

 for the preservation of the honor of the lights
 qiwamu namusi anwari

 of Your Countenance, the light by which You are shielded
 Wajhi-ka 'n-nura 'lladhi 'htajabta bi-hi

 from the perception of the eyes.
 'an idraki 'l-absar.

 

 [I beg You] to shield me with the lights of Your Names,
 an tahjuba-ni bi-anwari Asma'i-ka

 within the lights of Your Secrets,
 fi anwari Asrari-ka

 with a shield thick enough to defend me against every deficiency
 hijaban kathifan yadfa'u 'an-ni kulla naqsin

 that might affect me in my essential and my incidental nature,
 yukhalitu-ni fi jawhariyyati wa fi 'aradiyyati

 and which will form a barrier between me
 wa yahulu baini

 and anyone who seeks to do me harm,
 wa baina man arada-ni bi-su'. 

 

 [I beg You for] that by which You will revitalize me,
 wa ma tuhyi-ni bi-hi

 from among Your gracious favors which You have bestowed,
 min fada'il-ka 'llati manahta bi-ha

 and Your excellent bounties in which You have inundated me.
 wa fawadili-ka 'llati ghamarta-ni fi-ha.

 

 [I beg You for] whatever is assigned to me,
 wa ma ilayya

 and incumbent upon me, and due to me, and for me,
 wa 'alayya wa bi wa li

 and about me, and in my interest,
 wa 'an-ni wa fiyya. 

 for You are the Repeller of everything evil and despicable,
 fa-inna-ka Dafi'u kulli su'in wa makruh:

 and You are Capable of all things.
 wa Anta 'ala kulli sha'in Qadir.

 

 O Shining Source of every light, clothe me from Your Light
 ya Munawwira kulli nurin albis-ni min Nuri-ka

 in clothing that illuminates for me whatever I find confusing
 libasan yudihu li ma 'ltabasa 'alayya

 among my inner and outer states of being.
 mina ahwali 'l-batinati wa 'D-Dahira: 

 

 Extinguish the lights of my enemies and my enviers,
 wa 'tmis anwara a'da'i wa hussadi

 so that they cannot approach me except in abject humiliation,
 hatta la yahtadu ilayya illa bi'dh-dhulli

 in submission and ruination and exhaustion,
 wa 'l-inqiyadi wa 'l-halakati wa 'n-nafadi

 since no despotic oppressive, overbearing relic of them will remain.
 fa-la tubqi min-hum baqiyatan baghiyatan taghiyatan 'atiya. 

 

 Let the guards of Hell restrain them from me,
 aqmi'-hum 'an-ni bi'z-zabaniya:

 and let their pillars be demolished by the angels eight in number,
 wa hudda arkana-hum bi'l-mala'ikati 'th-thamaniya:

 and seize them by every forelock,
 wa khudh-hum min kulli nasiya:

 for the sake of each Name by which You have named Yourself,
 bi-haqqi kulli 'smin huwa la-ka sammaita bi-hi Nafsa-ka

 or have revealed in Your Book,
 aw anzalta-hu fi Kitabi-ka

 or have made known to one of Your creatures,
 aw 'allamta-hu ahadan min khalqi-ka

 or have kept in Your presence within the knowledge of the Unseen,
 awi 'sta'tharta bi-hi fi 'ilmi 'l-Ghaibi 'inda-ka

 and for the sake of that which is Yours by right,
 wa bi-haqqi-ka 'alai-ka

 and that which You owe to every owner of a rightful claim on You. 
 wa bi-haqqi-ka 'ala kulli dhi haqqin 'alai-k. 

 

 O Truth, O Clearly Manifest, O Ever-Living, O Self-Sustaining One! 
 ya Haqqu ya Mubinu ya Hayyu ya Qayyum:

 O Allah!  O Lord!  O Source of Help!
 ya Allahu ya Rabbahu ya Ghiyathah.

 

 I beseech You by Your most beautiful Names,
 as'alu-ka bi-Asma'ika 'l-husna

 and by Your most high and perfect Attributes,
 wa bi-Sifati-ka 't-tammati 'l-'ulya

 and by Your most exalted Dignity,
 bi-'Arshi-ka wa ma hawa

 and by Your Throne and what it contains,
 wa bi-Jaddi-ka 'l-a'la wa

 and by Him who established Himself upon the Throne,
 wa bi-Man 'ala 'l-'Arshi 'stawa

 and encompassed the sovereignty,
 wa 'ala 'l-mulki 'htawa

 and by him who

 

  drew near and came down, 
  dana fa-tadalla

  till he was two bows' length or nearer.
  fa-kana qaba qawsaini aw adna.  (53:8,9)

 

 [I beg You] to let the sun of awesome splendor, overwhelming,
 an tutli'a shamsa 'l-haibati 'l-qahirati 'l-

 brilliant, outwardly and inwardly potent and powerful,
 bahirati 'D-Dahirati 'l-qadirati 'l-muqtadirati

 shine upon my face, so that blindness will afflict any person
 'ala wajhi hatta ya'ma kullu shakhsin

 who stares at me with the eye of enmity, scorn and contempt.
 yanDuru ilayya bi-'aini 'l-'adawati wa 'l-izdira'i wa 'l-istihza':

 It will turn him away when he approaches me, repelled by the
 fa-tudbiru-hu 'inda iqbali-hi ilayya mustaraddan

 devastating perils and the threatening disasters,
 bi'l-makhawifi 'l-muhlikati wa 'l-bawa'iqi 'l-mudrika.

 

 Your embrace of all things will thus embrace them,
 fa-tuhitu bi-him ihatatu-ka bi-kulli shai'in

 until not a remnant of them remains,
 hatta la tubqiya min-hum baqiyatan

 and they find no protection against it.
 wa la yajidu min-ha waqiya. 

 

 "In the Name of Allah" be in front of us. 
 Bismi'llahi min quddami-na

 "In the Name of Allah" be behind us.
 Bismi'llahi min wara'i-na

 "In the Name of Allah" be above us.
 Bismi'llahi min fawqi-na 

 "In the Name of Allah" be beneath us.
 Bismi'llahi min tahti-na

 "In the Name of Allah" be on our right.
 Bismi'llahi 'an aimani-na

 "In the Name of Allah" be on our left. 
 Bismi'llahi 'an shama'ili-na

 

 O our Master!  O our Patron!
 ya Sayyida-na ya Mawla-na

 Answer our supplication and grant us our request!
 fa-'stajib du'a-na wa a'ti-na su'la-na

 

  So of the people who did wrong the last remnant was cut off.
  fa-quti'a dabiru 'l-qawmi 'lladhina Dalamu :

  Praise be to Allah, Lord of All the Worlds!
  wa 'l-hamdu li'llahi Rabbi 'l-'alamin.  (6:45)

 

  And Allah is behind them, Encompassing. 
  wa 'llahu min wara'i-him Muhit.

  Nay, but it is a glorious Qur'an, on a Treasured Tablet.  
  bal huwa Qur'anun majid: fi Lawhin MahfuD.  (85:20–22)

 

  If We will, We can send down on them from the sky a sign
  in nasha' nunazzil 'alai-him mina 's-sama'i ayatan

  so that their necks would remain bowed before it. 
  fa-Dallat a'naqu-hum la-ha khadi'in.  (26:4)

 

 And praise be to Allah, the Lord of All the Worlds.
 wa 'l-hamdu li'llahi Rabbi 'l-'alamin.

 

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

 

 O Allah!  O All-Merciful, O All-Compassionate One! 
 ya Allahu ya Rahmanu ya Rahim:

 O Ever-Living, O Eternally Self-Sustaining One!
 ya Hayyu ya Qayyum.

 

  Kaf–Ha–Ya'–'Ain–Sad.  (19:1)
 O Loving One, O Source of Help!

 ya Wadudu ya Musta'anu
 Ha–Mim.  'Ain–Sin–Qaf.  (42:1,2)

 

 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 sallam.
