In the name of God the compassionate the merciful

O Allah, terrible was the calamity, and its evil consequences are visible, the covering has been removed, (all) hopes have been cut off, the (plentiful) earth has shrunk (with very tittle to spare), the heavenly blessings have been withheld.

You alone can help, we refer our grief and sorrow to You, we have full faith in You, in the time of distress, as well as in good fortune.

O Allah, send blessings on Muhammad and on the children of Muhammad, whom we must obey as per Your command, through which we become aware of their rank and status, and let there be Joy after sorrow for us, for their sake, right away, in the twinkle of an eye, more rapidly than that.

O Muhammad, O Ali, O Ali, O Muhammad, Give me enough, because both of you provide sufficiently.

Help me, because both of you help and protect.

O our master, O the jiving Imam, HELP! HELP! HELP! Reach me! Reach me! Reach me! At once, in this hour.

Be quick, be quick, be quick, o the most merciful, for the sake of Muhammad and his pure children.
