Dua of Imam (a.s.) in Praise of Allah, the
Most High and Glorified
Famous as ''Dua-e-Yastasheer''

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

All praise is due to Allah except Whom there is no god and He is the Living, the Self-existing, the everlasting, the King, the Manifest Truth.

He is the Administrator without any minister.

And He does not consult any of His slaves from His creations.

He is the First, Who cannot be described. He is Eternal and will live forever, (even) after the annihilation of all creatures.

He is the greatest Lord, the Light of the earths and heavens.

And their Originator and Creator without visible supports.

He created both of them and separated them a proper separation.

The heavens became stable in obedience to His command and the lands became fixed on the surface of the water with their pegs.

Then our Lord the All-Merciful subdued the high heavens and ruled from the Throne.

Everything that is in heavens and in the earth and in between them and what is below the earth belongs to Him.

So, I bear witness that verily You are Allah.

There is none to elevate what You have lowered and no one to exalt him whom You leave in disgrace and no one to bring into disgrace whom You exalt and no one to prevent from one whom You bestow Your favour and no one to bestow anything, which You have withheld.

And You are Allah; there is no god but You.

Who existed when there was neither the stable sky nor the broad earth nor the brilliant sun nor the dark night, nor the bright day, nor the vast and stormy sea, nor any stable mountain, nor any revolving planet, nor the luminous moon, nor any blowing wind, nor any raining cloud, nor flashing lightning, nor any praising thunder, nor any breathing soul, nor any flying bird, nor any blazing fire, nor any flowing water.
