Prayers of Imam Ali (pbuh) in Kufa Mosque

In the name of God, the most compassionate, the merciful

Oh God! I seek your refuge indeed, the day when neither wealth nor children will be of benefit, except for those who meet You with a benign heart; and I beseech your protection the day when the cruel bites both his hands in regret, wishing to have chosen the right path with the prophet;

and I seek your refuge the day when the sinners are revealed by their face and are taken by their forehead and feet;

and I ask for your protection the day when neither children nor parents are to be punished for each other’s deeds (not even a bit).

Indeed God’s promise is true. And I seek your refuge when apology of the cruel is to no avail (not accepted). So theirs are damnation and hell.

And I ask for your protection when no one has the hold of anything for anyone and God is the only one who holds sway and orders; and I ask for your protection when one escapes from their brother, mother, father, spouse, and children, for each one of them, there is an entitled degree that day;

and I ask for your protection when the sinner prefers to sacrifice his son, spouse, brother and closest and dearest relatives and everybody else on the earth to escape his punishments. Never! Indeed God’s punishment is blazing flames of fire that burns away body skin!
