O God! Sustain us with goodwill for obedience & piety
from sin, for intentions with sincerity, and for cognizance of thy nobility & excellence.
And dignify us with right guidance and stability and integrity
And adorn our tongues with truth & wisdom and veracity
And fill our hearts with knowledge and sublimity.
And guard our stomachs from the suspected & forbidden foods & gluttony.
And withhold our hands from robbery& tyranny,
And restrain our eyes from infidelity & immorality.
And plug our ears to slander & futility,
O God! Bless our elite with admonition and piety,
And the students with endeavor and authority,
And the audience to comply with divine laws, & oratory,
And the Muslim patients with recovery and tranquility,
And the dead ones with compassion and mercy,
And our old ones with peace and dignity,
And the youth with repentance; and apology,
And the women with bashfulness and chastity,
And the rich with bounty, generosity and humility,
And the poor with contentment, patience and serenity
And the warriors with help and victory,
And the prisoners with release, ease and tranquility
And the chiefs with justice and clemency,
And the subjects with equity and good conduct,
And bless the Hajis and pilgrims with sufficiency, and help them perform every obligatory duty in the Hajj and Umrah ceremony & formality with the Beneficence and Mercy. O The Utmost Merciful of all with thy Mercy.

This dua has been recorded by the eminent traditionalist, Shaykh Abbas Qummi (r.a), in his renowned compilation, ‘Mafatihul Jinaan‘. He has reported this invocation on the authority of Shaykh Kafami from the latter’s ‘Misbahul Mutahajjid’.
It is recommended that this supplication be recited after every obligatory namaz or for that matter at any other time.
May Allah make early the reappearance of our beloved Imam (as) and count us all among His servants and followers.
