The following supplication is to be read by the teachers
and friends daily:
O Thou kind Lord! Praise be unto Thee that
Thou hast shown us the highway of guidance,
opened the doors of the kingdom and manifested
Thyself through the Sun of Reality. To the
blind Thou hast given sight; to the deaf Thou hast
granted hearing; Thou hast resuscitated the dead;
Thou hast enriched the poor; Thou hast shown the
way to those who have gone astray; Thou hast
led those with parched lips to the fountain of guidance;
Thou hast suffered the thirsty fish to reach
the ocean of reality; and Thou hast invited the
wandering birds to the rose garden of grace.
O Thou Almighty We are Thy servants and
Thy poor ones; we are remote and yearn for Thy
presence, are athirst for the water of Thy fountain,
are ill, longing for Thy healing. We are walking in
Thy path and have no aim or hope save the diffusion
of Thy fragrance, so that all souls may raise
the cry of "O God, guide us to the straight path."
May their eyes be opened to behold the light, and
may they be freed from the darkness of ignorance.
May they gather around the lamp of Thy guidance.
May every portionless one receive a share.
May the deprived become the confidants of Thy
O Almighty! Look upon us with the glance of
mercifulness. Grant us heavenly confirmation.
Bestow upon us the breath of the Holy Spirit, so
that we may be assisted in Thy service and, like
unto brilliant stars, shine in these regions with the
light of Thy guidance.
Verily, Thou art the Powerful, the Mighty,
the Wise and the Seeing.
