32.  Qunoot Al-Witr

 

32

 (112) O Allah, guide me along with those whom You have guided, pardon me along with those whom You have pardoned, be an ally to me along with those whom You are an ally to and bless for me that which You have bestowed. Protect me from the evil You have decreed for verily You decree and none can decree over You.For surety, he whom you show allegiance to is never abased and he whom You take as an enemy is never honoured and mighty. O our Lord, Blessed and Exalted are You.

Evil you have decreed: Allah does not create pure evil which does not have any good or contain any benefit, wisdom or mercy at all, nor does He punish anyone without having commited a sin. Something can be good in terms of its creation when viewed in a particular perspective and at the same time be evil when viewed in another way.Allah created the devil and by him, He tests His servants, so there are those who hate the devil, fight him and his way and they stand at enmity towards him and his followers and there are others who are at allegiance with the devil and follow his steps. So evil exists in His creatures by His will and wisdom, not in His actions or act of creating.

 

(112) Al-Lahumma Ahdinī Fīman Hadayta Wa `Āfinī Fīman `Āfayta Wa Tawallanī Fīman Tawallayta Wa Bārik Lī Fīmā 'A`ţayta Wa Qinī Sharra Mā Qađayta Fa'innaka Taqđī Wa Lā Yuqđá `Alayka 'Innahu Lā Yadhillu Man Wa A-Yta Wa Lā Ya`izzu Man `Ādayta Tabārakta Rabbanā Wa Ta`ālayta.

(113) O Allah, I take refuge within Your pleasure from Your displeasure and within Your pardon from Your punishment, and I take refuge in You from You. I cannot enumerate Your praise. You are as You have praised Yourself.

(114) O Allah, it is You we worship, and unto You we pray and prostrate, and towards You we hasten and You we serve. We hope for Your mercy and fear Your punishment, verily Your punishment will fall upon the disbelievers.O Allah, we seek Your aid and ask Your pardon, we praise You with all good and do not disbelieve in You.We believe in You and submit unto You, and we disown and reject those who disbelieve in You.

(114) Al-Lahumma 'Īyāka Na`budu Wa Laka Nuşallī Wa Nasjudu Wa 'Ilayka Nas`á Wa Naĥfidu Narjū Raĥmataka Wa Nakhshá `Adhābaka 'Inna `Adhābaka Bil-Kāfirīna Mulĥaq.un Al-Lahumma 'Innā Nasta`īnuka Wa Nastaghfiruka Wa Nuthnī `Alayka Al-Khayra Wa Lā Nakfuruka Wa Nu'uminu Bika Wa Nakhđa`u Laka Wa Nakhla`u Man Yakfuruka.
