One of his prayers in contemplation of an important matter or an accident which befell him or in times of distress.

O Thou, by Whom the knots of difficulties are untied. O Thou, by Whom the severity of hardships is diminished. O Thou, from Whom we seek deliverance from trials and comfort in time of distress. (Through Thy) Power all things become easy. lhrough (Thy) Favor, all causes become effective; by Whose Authority decrees have been issued, and according to Whose Will difficult things have moved. They obey Thy Will, though Thou didst not speak to them, They are restrained by Thy Intention though Thou didst not give expression to it. Thou art the one unto Whom we call out to in times of trouble. Thou art the only refuge in distress. Nothing is removed except what Thou hast removed. Nothing is taken away unless Thou hast taken it away. Verily, O Lord, misfortune has befallen me, the burden of which is unbearable. That which is unendurable has overtaken me. By Thy Might, Thou hast brought it on me.

By Thy Authority, Thou hast directed it towards me. There is no one to ward off that which Thou hast brought; no one to turn aside that which Thou hast directed. There is no one to make easy what Thou hast made difficult; no one to assist him whom Thou hast forsaken. Therefore, send blessings upon Muhammad and his descendants and graciously open for me, O Lord, the gate of deliverance; remove from me overpowering anxiety by Thy Might; look with favor upon the complaints I have offered; make me taste the sweetness of Thy dealings with me concerning those things which I have asked of Thee.

Bestow Thy Mercy upon me. Grant me pleasant relief from sorrow. Grant me, by Thy G.ace, speedy deliverance from distress. Do not let anxiety keep me from the performance of my duties to Thee and the observance of Thy Laws.

Verily I am distressed because of what has befallen me. (I) am full of sadness on account of having to bear what has overtaken me.

Thou hast power to remove that in which I am involved and to avert that into which I have fallen.

Therefore, grant me this (favor) even though I do not deserve it from Thee, O Possessor of the Magnificent Throne!
