Let whosoever travels to different parts to teach, peruse
over mountain, desert, land and sea this supplication.
O God! O God! Thou seest my weakness,
lowliness and humility before Thy creatures;
nevertheless, I have trusted in Thee and
have arisen in the promotion of Thy teachings
among Thy strong servants, relying on Thy
power and might.
O Lord! I am a broken-winged bird and desire
to soar in Thy limitless space. How is it possible
for me to do this save through Thy providence
and grace, Thy confirmation and assistance.
O Lord! Have pity on my weakness, and
strengthen me with Thy power. O Lord! Have
pity on my impotence, and assist me with Thy
might and majesty.
O Lord! Should the breath of the Holy Spirit
confirm the weakest of creatures, he would attain
all to which he aspireth and would possess anything
he desireth. Indeed, Thou hast assisted Thy
servants in the past and, though they were the
weakest of Thy creatures, the lowliest of Thy servants
and the most insignificant of those who
lived upon the earth, through Thy sanction and
potency they took precedence over the most glorious
of Thy people and the most noble of mankind.
Whereas formerly they were as moths, they
became as royal falcons, and whereas before they
were as brooks, they became as seas, through
Thy bestowal and Thy mercy. They became,
through Thy most great favor, stars shining on
the horizon of guidance, birds singing in the rose
gardens of immortality, lions roaring in the forests
of knowledge and wisdom, and whales swimming
in the oceans of life.
Verily, Thou art the Clement, the Powerful, the
Mighty, and the Most Merciful of the merciful.
