Kumayl Ibne Ziyad was one of the companions of Commander of the faithful Imam Ali (AS). The Imam had taught him this Duaa also known as“Duaa-e-Khizr”

Imam Ali (AS) said “ O Kumayl, try to read this duaa every Thursday night or at least once a month or once in every year or once in life time. Benefits include increase in sustenance and forgiveness of big and small sins and Allah will accept duaas for both worlds.”

O Allah, I beseech Thee by Thy mercy which encompasses all things

And by Thy power by which Thou overcometh all things and submit to it all things and humble before it all things

And by Thy might by which thou hast conquered all things

And by Thy majesty against which nothing can stand

And by Thy grandeur which prevails upon all things

And by Thy authority which is exercised over all things

And by Thy own self that will endure for ever after all things have vanished

And by Thy Names which manifest Thy power over all things

And by Thy knowledge which pervades all things

And by the light of Thy countenance which illuminates every thing

O Thou who art the light; O Thou who art the most holy; O Thou who existed before the foremost; O Thou who shall exist after the last

O Allah, Forgive me my such sins as would affront my defense

O Allah, Forgive me my such sins as would bring down calamity

O Allah, Forgive me my such sins as would change Divine favors

O Allah, Forgive me my such sins as would hinder my supplications

O Allah, Forgive me my such sins as bring down misfortunes

O Allah, Forgive me my such sins as would suppress hope

O Allah, Forgive every sin I have committed and every error that I have erred

O Allah, I Endeavour to draw myself nigh to Thee through Thy invocations

And I pray to Thee to intercede on my behalf

And I entreat Thee by Thy Benevolence to draw me nearer to Thee

And grant me that I should be grateful to Thee and inspire me to remember and to invoke Thee

O Allah, I entreat Thee begging Thee submissively, humbly and awe strikingly

To treat me with clemency and mercy and to make me pleased with what Thou hast allotted to me

And cause me to be modest and unassuming in all circumstances

O Allah, I beg Thee as one who is passing through extreme privation and who supplicates his needs to Thee and his hope has been greatly raised by that which is Thee

O Allah, great is Thy kingdom and exalted is Thy greatness

Thy plan is secret, Thy authority is manifest, Thy might is victorious and subduing and Thy power is prevalent through out and it is not possible to escape from Thy dominion

O Allah, except Thee I do not find anyone able to pardon my sins nor to conceal my loathsome acts

Nor have I any one except Thee to change my evil deeds into virtues

There is no God but Thou glory and praise be to Thee I have made my own soul to suffer I have the audacity (to sin) by my ignorance

Relying on my past remembrance of Thee and Thy grace towards me

O Allah, my Lord, how many of my loathsome acts you have screened (from public gaze)

How many of my grievous afflictions have Thou reduced in severity

And how many of my stumbling hast Thou protected, how many of my detestable acts have Thou averted and how many of my undeserving praises hast Thou spread abroad

O Allah my trials and sufferings have increased and my evilness has worsened, my good deeds have diminished and my yokes (of misdeeds) have become firm

And remote hopes restrain me to profit (by good deeds) and the world have deceived me with its allurement and my own self has been by treachery and procrastination

Therefore, my Lord, impose Thee by Thy greatness not to let my sins and my misdeeds shut out access to my prayers from reaching Thy realm and not to disgrace me by exposing those (hidden ones) of which Thou hast knowledge nor to hasten my retribution for those vices and misdeeds committed by me in secret which were due to evil-mindedness, ignorance, excessive lustfulness, and my negligence

O Allah I beg Thee by Thy greatness to be compassionate to me in all circumstances and well disposed towards me in all matters

My God, my Nourisher, has I any one except Thee from whom I can seek the dislodging of my evils and understanding of my problems?

My God, my Master Thou decreed a law for me instead I followed my own low desires

And I did not guard myself against the allurements of my enemy

He deceived me by vain hopes whereby I was led astray and fate helped him in that respect

Thus I transgressed some of its limits set for me by Thee and I disobeyed some of Thy commandments; Thou hast therefore a just cause against me in all those matters and I have no plea against Thy judgment passed against me

I have therefore become justifiably liable to Thy judgment and afflictions

But now I have turned to Thee, my Lord, after being guilty of omissions and transgressions against my soul, apologically, repentantly, brokenheartedly, entreating earnestly for forgiveness, yieldingly confessing to my guilt as I can find no escape from that which was done by me and have no refuge to which I could turn except seeking Thy acceptance of my excuse and admitting me into the realm of Thy capacious mercy

O Allah accepts my apology and have pity on my intense sufferings and set me free from my heavy fetters of my evil deeds
