Hizb al Bahr w TEXT Litany of The Sea written by Imam Abul Hassan
The Litany of the Sea
In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful
Oh, Allah! Oh, Most High! Oh, Exalted! Oh, Gentle! Oh, All-Knowing! You are my
Sustainer and Your knowledge is my sufficiency, how excellent a Sustainer is my
how excellent a Sufficer is my Sufficer. You aid whom You choose,
and You are the All-Powerful, the Most Merciful. We ask of Your Protection
in our movements and our stillness, in our words
and our desires, and our thoughts; from the doubts
and the suspicions and the illusions that veil our hearts
from the perception of the unseen. And “truly have the believers
been tested and shaken, shaken severely and if the
hypocrites and those with doubting hearts say:
Allah and His Messenger did not promise us other than delusion” (33:11-12),
firmly root us and support us and subjugate to us this Sea
as You subjugated the Sea to Moses. And You subjugated
the fire to Abraham. And You subjugated the mountains and the iron
to David. And You subjugated the wind and the Demons
and the Jinns to Solomon. And subjugate to us every sea
of Yours on the Earth, in the Skies, the Dominions
and the Heavenly Realm. And the Sea of this world and the Sea of the World to
come. And subjugate
to us everything, Oh! You in Whose Hand is the dominion over every thing.
[Kaaf-Ha-Ya-‘Ain-Saad] (3x). Aid us,
for You are the best of those who aid. And open for us, for You
are the best of those who open. And forgive us, for You are the best
of Forgivers. And have mercy upon us, for You are the best of those who Show
And provide for us, for You are the best of Providers. And guide and deliver us
from the People of Oppression. And grant us a fai wind
according to Your Knowledge and waft it upon us
from the Treasures of Your Mercy. Carry us by the conveyance
of Your Generosity with Peace in our lives in this world and in the world to come -
“over all things You have power”(3:26).
Oh, Allah! Make easy for us our situations with rest for our hearts
and our bodies; and peace and well-being in
our spiritual and worldly lives and be to us our Companion
in our journey and the Guardian of our family. Efface
the faces of our enemy. Freeze them in
their places so that they are unable to go
or to come against us. “If We willed We would have wiped out
their eyes, then they would have raced to the Way, but how
would they have seen? And if We willed, We would have frozen them in
their places, neither could they go forth or could they
return” (36:66-67). “Ya-Seen, By the Qur’an, full of wisdom.
You are indeed among the Messengers. On a straight way.
Sent down by the All-Powerful, the Merciful. So that you may warn a people
whose forefathers received no admonition and who therefore remain heedless.
The Word has been proved true against the greater part of them, for they do
not believe. Behold, We have placed yokes around their necks
so that their heads are forced up. And We have placed
in front of them a barrier and behind them a barrier
and further, We have covered them up: so that they do not see” (36:1-9). Defaced,
defaced, defaced. “Faces shall be
humbled before the Living, the Self-Subsistent. Indeed will fail, the one who has
evil within him” (20:111). Tah-Seen; Tah-Seen-Meem; Ha-Meem-‘Ain-Seen-Qaf.
“He let forth the two seas
that come together, between them is a barrier they do not pass” (55:19-20).
[Ha-Meem] (7x). The matter is decreed,
victory came, against us they shall not be victorious. “Ha-Meem.
The Book came down from Allah, The Most Powerful, the All-Knowing” (41:1-2).
Pardoner of sin, Acceptar of penitence, terrible in retribution,
The Bountiful. “There is no god but He, to Him is the
[‘In the Name of Allah’ is our door. ‘By His blessing’, our walls.
Ya-Seen, our roof. Kaaf-Ha-Ya-‘Ain-Saad, our sufficiency.
Ha-Meem-‘Ain-Seen-Qaf, our protection. “Allah will protect us
and He is the All-Hearing, All-Knowing” (2:137)] (3x).
[The veil of the Throne is extended over us, and the Eye
Of Allah gazes upon us, by the Power of Allah, none may decree evil
upon us. “And Allah, all unseen, has surrounded them. Truly it
is a Glorious Qur’an. In a preserved Tablet” (85:20-22). “And Allah is the best
Protector and He is the Most Merciful of those who show Mercy” (12:92)] (3x).
[“Truly my Protector is Allah, the One who sent down the Book,
and He protects the righteous” (7:196)] (3x).
[“Sufficient for me is Allah, there is no god but He, upon Him I place my trust,
and He is the Lord of the Glorious Throne” (9:129)] (3x).
[In the Name of Allah with whose Name no harm shall come to anything
in the earth nor in the heavens and He is the All-Hearing, All-Knowing] (3x).
[And there is no Power and no Might except with Allah, the Exalted, the Glorious].
