When I join the forgotten...

"My Master, and have mercy upon me when my trace is cut off from this world,

my mention is effaced among the creatures,

and I join the forgotten, like the forgotten ones!

 

My Master, and have mercy upon me at the change of my form and state when

my body decays, my limbs are scattered,

and my joints are dismembered!

 

O my heedlessness toward what was wanted from me!

 

My Master, have mercy upon me at my mustering and uprising and on that day, appoint my standing place with Thy friends,

my place of emergence with Thy beloveds, and my dwelling

in Thy neighborhood!

O Lord of the worlds! "

 

- Imam Zainul Abidin a.s.
