ENGLISH SUMMARY

“Wa kam lillahe min lutfin khafiyyi” is a munajaat sharifa by Ameerul Mumeneen Maulana Ali ibne abi Talib AS “Munajaat” literally means, “to converse with The Almighty” and it is a great fortune for a Mumin to be able to pray to Allah Ta’ala as shown by Amiral Mumineen. Mumineen should recite this munajaat especially during the month of Ramadaan, which is the month of Allah, the month of ibaadat and dua.

In this munajat, Maulana Ali guides us to trust in Allah Subhanahu and not despair or lose hope, even when faced with immense difficulties and overwhelming circumstances. Maulana Ali guides us to seek intercession (vasila) of the Nabi and pray to Allah when faced with difficulties so that our prayers will be answered. In the last bayt of the munajaat, Maulana Ali gives us hope and says, “Do not be alarmed when a tragedy hits you, for Allah’s workings include many a subtle grace. Allah’s endless graces and kindnesses are hidden even from the most intelligent minds.”

Arabic Script

وَ كَم لِلّهِ مِن لُطفٍ خَفِيّ
يَدِقُ خَفَاهُ عَن فَهَمِ الزّكِيّ
وَ كَم يُسرٍ اَتَا مِن بَعدِ عُسرٍ
فَفَرّ جَ كُربَةَ القَلبِ الشّجِيّ
وَ كَم اَمرٍ تُسَا ءُ بِه صَبَاحًا
فَتَاتِيكَ المَسَرّ ةُ فِي العَشِيّ
اِذَا ضَاقَت بِكَ الاَحوَالُ يَومًا
فَثِق بِالوَاحِدِ الفَر دِلعَلِيّ
تَوَسّل بِالنّبِيّ فَكُلّ خَطبٍ
يَهُونُ اِذَا تُوُسّلَ بِالنّبِيّ
وَلاَ تَجزَع اِذَا مَا نَابَ خَطب
فَكَم لِلّهِ مِن لُطفٍ خَفِيّ
