The Imam said, ‘Say O Lord, grant me out of Your vast magnanimity, lawful and pure sustenance, that is vast, lawful, pure and sufficient for this world and the hereafter in large quantities, pleasant in nutrition with out toiling or being obliged by any of Your creatures except for its being the extra from Your vast generosity; You have said, “. . . ask Allah from His munificence. . . .” (4: 32), from Your munificence I ask sustenance and from Your charity I beg and from Your wealthy hand I plead to receive help.’”

3.

O Muhammad, O Messenger of Allah, I ask through you from Allah, your Lord and my Lord and the Lord of all things, to grant al-Salat (favors) upon Muhammad and his family, and beg You for a noble relief from Your relief, an easy felicity, a vast sustenance, to place together my chaotic conditions, pay my debts and help my family.

13. Abu Basir has narrated from abu ‘Abd Allah (a.s.) who has said the following: “Ali ibn al-Husayn (a.s.) would pray and plead before Allah for help with this supplication: ‘O Lord, I plead before You for good means of living with which I may gain power for all of my needs and continue my life to the next life, but not so affluently with which I may rebel, or such constraints that make me miserable. Expand for me Your lawful sustenance, and increase for me Your generous favor, a delightful bounty, and a charity for me without being obliged. Do not cause me to be held back from paying thanks for Your bounties due to abundance of the same, its attractive beauty and its plentifulness, nor such constraint that toiling for it would reduce my deeds, and its worries fill up my chest (mind). Bestow upon me, O Lord, self-sufficiency from Your evil creatures and a means with which I can gain Your pleasure. I seek protection with You O Lord, against the evil of this world and the evil that is therein, do not make the world a prison for me, or departing it a sorrow. Take me out of its trials and tribulations, while You are happy with me, and my deeds accepted, to the house of life, the dwelling of the virtuous people. Replace for me the vanishing worldly bounties with the bounties of the eternal house. O Lord, I seek protection with You against its constraints, shaky conditions, the attacks of its devils, rulers, its troubles and against the rebelliousness of those who rebel against me in this world. O Lord, plan against those who plot against me, decide against those who transgress against me, turn of no effect that edge of which one may have established against me, divert away from me the flame of the blazing fire that is fueled against me, suffice me the plots of the evil planners, holding back away from me the spies of the unbelievers. Suffice me to cope with the worries for whom I am worried, repulse away from me the evils of the envious ones and grant me protection against such evils with calm and dress me up with Your formidable coat of arms, hide me in Your protective shelter, correct my condition, justify my words by my deeds, bestow upon me blessings in my family and belongings.’”
