O Allahsend blessing on Muhammed and on the children of Muhammad.
In the name of Allah, the beneficent, the Merciful.
Praise be to Allah, the lord of the worlds.
And blessings of Allah and peace be on our Chief Muhammad, His Prophet, and on his children.
O my Allah!
(All) praise is for Thee for that which Thou decided upon and resolved in the matter of Thy friends,
whom Thou purified for Thyself and Thy religion,
When wisdom and high rank from Thee, prostrated themselves in adoration before them (from the Bountiful preserving Lord),
for whom neither there was any decrease,
nor dispersion thereafter, then Thou stipulated for them piety and righteousness.
While they were in this mean and crooked world,
free from its pomp, vanity and false enjoyments,
Thy overreaching authority made known their identity;
and equipped them with sincerity and perfection
stood surety for them and communicated intimately with them,
sent the news of their auspicious arrival in advance,
and praise them in clear terms for the benefit of one and all.
Fell down on the ground in prostration Thy Angels before them,

Thou chose them to reveal Thy words,
gave them Thy wisdom as a gift,
set them up as the (only) medium to reach Thee, the only means to the eternal land of peace and happiness.
One dwelled in Paradise until Thou sent him on (as the first Prophet).
One was made to cruise the "Ark"
and had been rescued, and kept safe from destruction through Thy mercy.
One was chosen and prepared for Thy Mission, as (Thy) Friend,
(who) made a request to Thee for a good report in (his) later generations,
so Thou approved and complied with,
exalted them and gave them authority.
One was spoken directly though the Tree,
his brother was appointed his successor and helper.
One was brought in without a father,
was given clear proofs
and was supported with the Holy Spirit.
For each Thou prescribed a Divine law,
and set up a traced out path,
each was appointed a guardian-executor,
(and each) fulfilled the duty after being kept safe and protected,
in the term of establishing Thy religion,

(Send blessings on him and on his children).
so Thou just as chose him master of whosoever Thou created,
made him (whom Thou Selected), pure, clean and the best, exalted and praised him (whom Thou elected),

gave Thy word to him that Thou would make his religion prevail over all religion,
however much the idolaters may be averse.
Thereafter acknowledged his atonement and provided good and perfection for his children,
allotted for him and his children the first sanctuary appointed for mankind, at Becca (Mecca), a blessed plane, a guidance to the people,
wherein are plain and clear signs;
the place where Ibraheem stood whosoever enters it is safe.
"Allah's wish is but to remove uncleanness far from you, O "People of the House", and purity you with a thorough purification."
Thereupon Thou settled conclusively fee (recompense) of Muhammad (Thy blessings be on him and on ihs children) love for them, in Thy Holy Book.
So Thou said:
"Say (O Muhammad): I ask of you no fee (recompense) Therefore, save love of (my) Kinsfolk."
"Whatever recompense (return) I have asked of you, (it) is only for yourselves."
And Thou said:
"I ask of you no reward for this, save that, whoso will, chooses a way unto his lord."
Therefore They are the (only) means to (approach) Thee, the (only) medium to get Thy favours.

Ali ibna Abi Taalib, (Thy blessing be on them both, and on their children), a guide.
At the time when he was made a warmer and a guide for every people,
said he (the Holy Prophet), their guide, in a public meeting overflowing with people; "O whosoever I am the Mawlaa (Lord Master) Ali is his Mawlaa.
O Allah! Be a friend of him who is a friend of him, be an enemy of him is an enemy of him,
help that man who helps him, forsake that man who forsakes him"
"Of whosoever I am the Prophet Ali is his Chief."
"I and Ali are (one basic root of) a tree, and the rest of mankind are like diverse plants.
he proclaims the position (relationship) of Harron to Moosaa."
Therefore he told him:
"I am to you as Moosaa was to Haroon,
but certainly there is no Prophet after me."
His (Ali's) life partner was his (Muhammad's) daughter
the chief of the women of the worlds.
Lawful was for him (Ali), in "the mosque the which was permitted to him (Muhammad), all doors were closed, except his door.
He (Muhammad) gave his knowledge and wisdom into his

"I am the city (center) of knowledge and Ali is its gate.
Whoso desires to approach and dwell in the city of knowledge and wisdom should come through its door.
Thereafter he said:
"You are brother, successor and inheritor,
your flesh is my flesh,
your blood is my blood,
your truce is my truce
Your fight is my fight,
faith is blended, mixed and mingled (part and parcel) in your flesh and blood,

in my close company.
where it not you O Ali, the faithfuls would not know the truth after me."
After him (Muhammad) he (Ali) was the guide for the wanders, a bright light in the blind darkness, the strong rope of Allah, and the right path, did not ever hold back kindness and compassion from the common people,

nor ever made excuses or delay to give priority to the matters or religion,
nor blew his own trumpet nor felt proud of his glory,
did the same thing the Messenger used to do,
(Blessing of Allah be on them both and on their children) put an end to misinterpretation,
did not lose temper, for the sake of Allah, if any one turned to mud-slinging and name-calling.
He had thrown the proud tribal chiefs of Arabia into a fright, destroyed their heroes,
attacked and dispersed their cavalries,
because of which hatred and deep grudge took root in their hearts.
Badr, Khabar, and Hunain created jealousy and envy in them, therefore, united they joined hands to oppose him, and came out in great number to fight against him, till he destroyed all deserters, who had swerved from what was right, the shameless who deviated from true religion, while he was carrying out the important mission.
Killed him a malicious criminal, a contemporary, serving the interest and following the doctrine of earlier impudent villians.
An unparalleled and outlandish approach was applied to the directions of the Messenger of Allah,

Flocked together to pass up and deny his connection with him family, and pushed his children out of their way, but a handful of sincere faithfuls kept their promise and dutifully upheld the rights of his children;
Some were slain, and they met face to face (when came upon) their destiny (martyrdom).
That which is given to each (of them) as reward of good deeds is the gest recompense, since the earth belongs to Allah, and He gives it for an inheritance to whom He wants from among His servants, and the (good) end is for the God-fearing wise;
glory to our Lord! verily the promise of our Lord must be fulfilled;
Allah does not break His word, is Almighty Wise.
So be purified and refined by making known and remembering the choicest children of Muhammad and Ali, blessings of Allah be on them both, and on their children.
The heartbroken, in tears, make their hearts bleed, together with them, the deeply moved perceptive men of letters describe their wisdom and liberality, as they themselves used to do,

the root of praise and distinction,
never can be uprooted.
I eagerly long for you who is always tender, gentle and comforting,
never makes one's affairs worse instead of better.
I eagerly long for you who is just and equitable beyond a trace of doubt,
does not take severe action until mis behaviour trespasses the limit.
How long and unto what is to be directed (my) request for friendly attention concerning you?
And what is the message?
It makes me sad to get favorable reply from anyone other than you
but to be duped and chested in the end.
It casts a gloom upon me that you suffered hardships and the chicken hearted deserters left you alone.
It is painful for me what took place for you from them and that which had happened.
Is there a helper with whom I may cooperate and take pains?
Is there a restless with whom I may share when action is taken?
Is there a faint twinkle of evidence to make me willingly take up the trouble?

Can you once cleverly guide the course of time,
so that we may obtain our wish?
when shall we bridge the gap that separate us from the vision
so that we may refer to the authority?
How long shall we keep waiting for your pleasing satisfying essence and quality?
Already the period of expectation has lasted too long!
When shall we receive our share from you and have our minds set at rest?
For we have fixed our eyes upon you and strive with perseverance.
When shall we be happy, and see you beautiful form and fine aspect?
Groups of cheerful willing disciplined helpers, in great numbers, gathering around you to carry out one work after the other!
You-fulfilling (every promise) and giving joy, heart and confidence (to the faithfuls); filling the earth with justice:
making your enemies follow the laws and accept the revolution; taking the wind out of the haughty and the boastful, and those who knew but denied the truth;
breaking the back of the proud and the arrogant; uprooting the roots of the unjust;
and we-singing the praise of Allah,
the Lord of the worlds.

Thou disperses the clouds of sorrows and hardships.
Unto Thee we turn to ask for help against the enemy;
for Thou (alone) helps and guides.
Thou (alone) puts into good order affairs of this world and shall make better the Hereafter.
So come to help! O He Who is called to help the helpless,
Thy servants, surrounded by calamities.
Show them the face of their Leader,.
O the Mightiest Almighty.
Allow him to put an end to evil and corruption, and satisfy his Love (for the faithfuls) and dislike (for the sinners).
O He Who, from the "Arsh directs and controls all creation,
and unto Him is the return, final and ultimate.
O my Allah!
We are Thy servants, longing for Thy friend (appointed authority), who reminds us of Thee, and Thy Prophet,
who was created as a refuge and asylum for us, established as a foundation and spring of truthfulness for us,
and was made the leader Guide of the faithfuls.
Convey to him our heartfelt congratulations and welcome.
Make us feel more deeply for him.
make his headquarters our place of domicile and dwelling

so that he takes us to the eternal land of peace and bliss,
where we shall rub elbows with Thy sincere servants who shed blood to pronounce the Faith.
O Allah send Thy blessings on Muhammad and on the children of Muhammad.
Bless his ancestor Muhammad, the Messenger, the foremost Leader,
and his great grandmother, the ever truthful,
Fatimah daughter of Muhammad,
and his chosen virtuous forefathers,
and send blessings on him,
not ever bestowed (even) on any of Thy sincerely attached and pious friends from among Thy creation.
Bless him with blessings,

cannot be "proximated" in space of time,
cannot be consumed in terms of having nothing remaining.
O my Allah!
Set up truth,
show the right path to Thy friends,
humiliate Thy enemies,

O my Allah!
Unite us with him.
Let us be friends with his ancestors.
give us courage to disperse those who oppose and try to prevent him,
and make them stay in their shame and disgrace for ever,
Help us to discharge the duties made incumbent upon us by him,
keep from that which is declared unlawful by him, rely upon him to get his approval.
Let us be with him when he makes peace, and frees mankind from fear,
gives currency to love at kindness,
brings bliss and happiness,
spreads good and virtue
so that we may do our best to promote his cause through Thy mercy,
and win victory for Thee.

Turn towards us Thy kindness and loving aspects.
