And o’ Thou who art the Lord of the universe. Far be it from You! And over hearts acknowledging Your Divinity through verification. And over tongues voicing sincerely the profession of Your Unity and giving thanks to You in praise. O Thou who existed before the foremost! So that I may move easily toward You in the battlefields of the foremost. But now I have turned Thee, my Lord, after being guilty of omissions and transgressions against my soul, apologetically, repentantly, broken heartedly, entreating earnestly for forgiveness, yieldingly confessing to my guilt as I can find no escape from that which was done by me and having no refuge to which I could turn except seeking Thy acceptance of my excuse and admitting me into the realm of Thy capacious mercy.

I have no argument in what Your destiny put into effect through me therein. You can see the complete English text of Du’a Kumayl here and also here via video with English subtitle.

The Du’a is not an exclusively Shi’a dua, however, as none of its content is controversial among Shi’a and Sunni schools of thought.


You art more generous than that You shouldst squander him whom You hast nurtured. Which Thou in Thy mercy hast kept secret and through Thy kindness unexposed and I pray to Thee to make my share plentiful in all the good that Thou dost bestow; in all the favours that Thou dost grant; and in all kjmail virtues that Thou dost allow to be known everywhere; and in all the sustenance and livelihood that Thou dost expand and in respect of all the sins that Thou dost forgive and the wrongs that Thou dost cover up Kumajl Lord!

O’ Thou unto Whom I express my distress! According to Allama MajlesiKumayl ibn Ziyada confidante of Ali ibn Abi Talib had attended an assembly in the Mosque at Basra which was addressed by Imam Ali in the course of which the night of the 15th of Sha’aban a month was mentioned. Such sort of harshness is not expected from Thee as it is remote from Thy grace, o’ generous one! I entreat Thee begging Thee submissively, humbly and awestrickenly To treat me with clemency and mercy, and to make me pleased and contented with what Thou hast allotted to me And cause me to be modest and unassuming in all circumstances.

And what You have foreordained concerning the everlasting home of those who stubbornly resist. And how can the guards of hell threaten him when he calls out to Thee? Or how should he be convulsed among its levels, while You know his sincerity? O’ Master of my freedom!

Du’a Kumayl – Wikipedia

Thou hast imposed it, to bestow upon me this night and this very hour the forgiveness for all the transgressions that I have been guilty of, for all the sins that I have committed, for all the loathsome acts that I have kept secret and for all the evils done by me, secretly or openly, in concealment or outwardly and for every evil action that Thou hast ordered the two noble scribes to confirm whom Thou hast appointed to record all my actions and to be witnesses over me along with the limbs of my body, whilst Thou observeth over me besides them and wast witness to those acts concealed from them?

I will lament to You from the midst of the Fire’s inhabitants with lamentation of the hopeful. But You —holy are Your Names—hast sworn that You will fill it with the unbelievers.
