O You much desired
You are the aid in the hours of trouble;
In the deepest of darkness
as in the dangers of the desert
You see all things.
In the hour of shame and confusion
me, only You can protect;
when I am overcome with affliction
in the hour of danger
me, Your supreme intelligence will support.
O You ever present,
to free me from grief!__________________________________
O son, this could either be from Ibn Arabi or Jalaluddin Rumi. I'm sorry I do not have a record of the sources. But I remember taking this munajat along with me when I traveled to Sabah about a decade ago. I was at that time suffering badly from some jinn-related sickness. How bad you ask? I stepped out from the plane with a heavy head so much so that I came out from the airport through the wrong exit without passing the immigration! Mind you, that was probably my fifth time going to Kota Kinabalu, so familiarity was not an issue. Anyhow, Alhamdulillah ala kulli hal! Praise be to Allah in all circumstances.

And Jurayri says in 'Attar: Tadhkirat
"Trust in God
