The second whispered prayer by Imam As-Sajjad (as), as in As-Sahifa As-Sajjadiya

مناجاة الشاكين

إِلـٰهِي إليْكَ أَشْكُو نَفْساً بِالسُّوءِ أَمَّارَةً،
My God, to You I complain of a soul commanding to evil,
وَإلَىٰ الْخَطيئَةِ مُبادِرَةً،
rushing to offenses,
وَبِمَعاصِيكَ مُولَعَةً،
eager to disobey You,
وَلِسَخَطِكَ مُتَعَرِّضَةً،
and exposing itself to Your anger.
تَسْلُكُ بِي مَسالِكَ الْمَهالِكِ،
It takes me on the roads of disasters,
وَتَجْعَلُنِي عِنْدَكَ أَهْوَنَ هَالِكٍ،
it makes me the easiest of perishers before You;
كَثِيرَةَ الْعِلَلِ طَوِيلَةَ الأَمَلِ،
many its pretexts, drawn out its expectations;
إنْ مَسَّهَا الشَّرُّ تَجْزَعُ،
when evil touches it, it is anxious,
وَإنْ مَسَّهَا الْخَيْرُ تَمْنَعُ،
when good touches it, grudging;
مَيَّالَةً إلَىٰ اللَّعِبِ وَاللَّهْوِ،
inclining to play and diversion,
مَمْلُوَّةً بِالْغَفْلَةِ وَالسَّهْوِ،
full of heedlessness and inattention,
تُسْرِعُ بِي إلَىٰ الْحَوْبَةِ،
it hurries me to misdeeds
وَتُسَوِّفُنِي بِالتَّوْبَةِ.
and makes me delay repentance.
إِلـٰهِي أَشْكُو إلَيْكَ عَدُوّاً يُضِلُّنِي
My God, I complain to You of an enemy who misguides me
وَشَيْطانَاً يَغْوِينِي،
and a satan who leads me astray.
قَدْ مَلأَ بِالْوَسْواسِ صَدْرِي،
He has filled my breast with tempting thoughts,
وَأَحاطَتْ هَواجِسُهُ بِقَلْبِي
and his suggestions have encompassed my heart.
يُعاضِدُ لِيَ الْهَوىٰ،
He supports caprice against me,
وَيُزَيِّنُ لِي حُبَّ الدُّنْيَا،
embellishes for me the love of this world,
وَيَحُولُ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَ الطَّاعَةِ وَالزُّلْفىٰ.
and separates me from obedience and proximity!
إِلـٰهِي إلَيْكَ أَشْكُو قَلْبَاً قاسِياً
My God, to You I complain of a heart that is hard,
مَعَ الْوَسْواسِ مُتَقَلِّباً،
turned this way and that by tempting thoughts,
وَبِالرَّيْنِ وَالطَّبْعِ مُتَلَبِّساً،
clothed in rust and the seal,
وَعَيْنَاً عَنِ الْبُكاءِ مِنْ خَوْفِكَ جامِدَةً،
and of an eye too indifferent to weep in fear of You
وَإِلَىٰ ما تَسُرُّها طامِحَةً.
and eagerly seeking that which gladdens it!
إِلـٰهِي لا حَوْلَ وَلا قُوَّةَ إلاَّ بِقُدْرَتِكَ،
My God, there is no force and no strength except in Your power,
وَلا نَجاةَ لِي مِنْ مَكارِهِ الدُّنْيا إلاَّ بِعِصْمَتِكَ،
and no deliverance for me from the detested things of this world save through Your preservation.
فَأَسْأَلُكَ بِبَلاغَةِ حِكْمَتِكَ،
So I ask You by Your far-reaching wisdom
وَنَفاذِ مَشِيَّتِكَ،
and Your penetrating will
أَنْ لا تَجْعَلَنِي لِغَيْرِ جُودِكَ مُتَعَرِّضاً،
not to let me expose myself to other than Your munificence
وَلا تُصَيِّرَنِي لِلْفِتَنِ غَرَضاً،
and not to turn me into a target for trials!
وَكُنْ لِي عَلَىٰ الأَعْداءِ ناصِرَاً،
Be for me a helper against enemies,
وَعَلَىٰ الْمَخَازِي وَالْعُيُوبِ ساتِراً،
a coverer of shameful things and faults,
وَمِنَ الْبَلاءِ واقِياً،
a protector against afflictions,
وَعَنِ الْمَعاصِي عاصِمَاً،
a preserver against acts of disobedience!
بِرَأْفَتِكَ وَرَحْمَتِكَ يا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ.
By Your clemency and mercy, O Most Merciful of the merciful!
