Prayer of a woman from Basra
Allahumma ma tobati dunya illa bizikri
walal a khiratu illa bi liqaq
Ilahi ma au hasha saa atan tamurru
la tuzkaru an tafiha
"Ya Ilahi, dunya is not beautiful at all without your zikr;
Akhirah is not completely beautiful without your countenance;
Ilahi, everytime a moment passes in which you are not remembered, it is the most miserable moment that is in my life. So please Allah, do not combine on me
loss of your merciful love, as well as your punishment."
A prayer of one woman from Basriyat, a woman from Basra in the early days when they were known to be devout worshippers. She used to say this prayer every night.
