this is a prayer that Imam Ali taught his disciple Komeil. for our prayer loving friends. take a look. it has some of the richest meaning you can find in a prayer, and let me know what you think.

O Allah, I ask Thee by Thy mercy, which embraces all things;

by Thy strength, through which Thou dominatest all things, toward which all things are humble andbefore which all things are lowly;

by Thy invincibility through which Thou overwhelmest all things,

by Thy might, which nothing can resist;

by Thy tremendousness, which has filled all things;

by Thy force, which towers over all things;

by Thy face, which subsists after the annihilation of all things,

by Thy Names, which have filled the foundations of all things;

by Thy knowledge, which encompasses all things;

andby the light of Thy face, through which all things are illumined!

O Light! O All-holy! O First of those who are first and O Last of those who are last!

O Allah, forgive me those sins which tear apart safeguards!

O Allah, forgive me those sins which draw down adversities!

O Allah, forgive me those sins which alter blessings!

O Allah forgive me those sins which hold back supplication!

O Allah, forgive me those sins which draw down tribulation!

O Allah, forgive me every sin I have committed and every mistake I have made!

O Allah, verily I seek nearness to Thee through remembrance of Thee, I seek intercession from Thee with Thyself,

and I ask Thee through Thy munificence to bring me near to Thy proximity, to provide me with gratitude toward Thee and to inspire me with Thy remembrance.

O Allah, verily I ask Thee with the asking of a submissive, abased and lowly man

to show me forbearance, to have mercy on me and to make me satisfied and content with Thy appointment and [ make me ] humble in every state.

O Allah, I ask Thee with the asking of one whose indigence is extreme, who has stated to Thee in difficulties his need andwhose desire for what is with Thee has become great.

O Allah, Thy force is tremendous, Thy place is lofty, Thy deception is hidden,

Thy command is manifest, Thy domination is overwhelming, Thy power is unhindered and escape from Thy governance is impossible.

O Allah, I find no forgiver of my sins, no concealer of my ugly acts no transformer of any of my ugly acts into good acts but Thee

There is no god but Thou!Glory be to Thee, and Thine is the praise!I have wronged myself, I have been audacious in my ignorance

and I have depended upon Thy ancient remembrance of me and Thy favour toward me.

O Allah! O my Protector!How many ugly things Thou hast concealed!

How many burdensome tribulations Thou hast abolished!How many stumbles Thou hast prevented!

How many ordeals Thou hast repelled! And how much beautiful praise, for which I was unworthy, Thou hast spread abroad!

O Allah, my tribulation is tremendous, my bad state is excessive, my acts are inadequate,

my fetters have tied me down, my far-fetched hopes have held me back from my gain

and this world with its delusions, my own soul with its offences and my delay have deceived me.

O my Master! So I ask Thee by Thy mightnot to let my evil works and acts veil my supplication from Thee,

not to disgrace me through the hidden things Thou knowest of my secrets and not to hasten me to punishment for what I have done in private: my evil acts in secrecy,

my misdeeds, my continuous negligence, my ignorance, my manifold passions and my forgetfulness.

And by Thy might, O Allah, be kind to me in all states and [ be ] gracious to me in all affairs!

My God and my Lord! Have I any but Thee from whom to ask removal of my affliction and regard for my affairs!

My God and my Protector! Thou put into effect through me a decree in which I followed the caprice of my own soul

and did not remain wary of adorning my enemy. So he deluded me through my soul's caprice and therein destiny favoured him

So, in what was put into effect through me in that situation, I transgressed some of Thy statutes and disobeyed some of Thy commands.

So thine is the argument against me in all of that and I have no argument in what Thy destiny put into effect through me therein nor in what Thy decree and Thy tribulation imposed upon me.

Now I have come to Thee, My God, after my shortcoming and my immoderation toward myself, proffering my excuse, regretful,

broken, apologizing, asking forgiveness, repenting, acknowledging, submissive, confessing. I find no place to flee from what occurred through me, nor any place of escape to which I may turn in my affairs,

other than Thy acceptance of my excuse and Thy entering me into the compass of Thy mercy.

O Allah, so accept my excuse, have mercy upon the severity of my affliction and release me from the tightness of my fetters,

My Lord, have mercy uponthe weakness of my body, the thinness of my skin and the frailty of my bones.

O Thou who gave rise to my creation, to the remembrance of me, to the nurture of me, to goodness toward me and to nourishment on me, bestow upon me for the sake of Thy having given rise [ to me ] with generosity and Thy previous goodness to me!

O Allah, my Master and my Lord!Canst Thou see Thyself tormenting me with Thy fire after I have professed Thy Unity

and after the knowledge of Thee my heart has embraced,

the remembrance of Thee my tongue has constantly mentioned and the love of Thee to which my mind has clung?

After the sincerity of my confession and my supplication, humble before Thy lordship?

Far be it from Thee! Thou art more generous than that Thou shouldstsquander him whom Thou hast nurtured, banish him whom Thou hast brought nigh,

drive away him whom Thou hast given an abodeor submit to tribulation him whom Thou hast spared and shown mercy.

Would that I knew, my Master, My God and my Protector, whether Thou wilt give the Fire dominion over faces fallen down prostrate before Thy Tremendousness,

tongues voicing sincerely the profession of Thy Unity and giving thanks to Thee in praise,

hearts acknowledging Thy Divinity through verification, minds encompassing knowledge of Thee until they have become humble

and bodily members speeding to the places of Thy worship in obedience and beckoning for Thy forgiveness in submission.

No such opinion is held of Thee! Nor has such been reported - thanks to Thy bounty concerning Thee, O All-generous! My Lord,

and Thou knowest my weakness before a little of this world's tribulations and punishments,

and before those ordeals which befall its inhabitants, even though it is a tribulation and ordeal whose stay is short, whose subsistence is but little and, whose period is but fleeting.

So how can I endure the tribulations of the next world and the great ordeals that occur within it?

For it is a tribulation whose period is long, whose station endures and whose sufferers are given no respite,

since it only occurs as a result of Thy wrath, Thy vengeance and Thy anger,

and these cannot be withstood by the heavens and the earth.

O Master, so what about me?!For I am Thy weak, lowly, base, wretched and miserable slave.

My God! My Lord! My Master! My Protector!For which things would I complain to Thee, and for which of them would I lament and weep?

For the pain and severity of chastisement? Or for the length and period of tribulation?

So if Thou takest me to the punishments with Thy enemies, gatherest me with the people of Thy tribulation and separatest me from Thy friends and saints,

then suppose, My God, my Master, my Protector and my Lord that I am able to endure Thy chastisement. How can I endure separation from Thee?

And suppose that I am able to endure the heat of Thy fire, how can I endure not gazing upon Thy generosity?

Or how can I dwell in the Fire while my hope is Thy pardon?

So by Thy might, my Master and my protector, I swear sincerely, if Thou leavest me wi

So by Thy might, my Master and my protector, I swear sincerely, if Thou leavest me with speech, I will lament to Thee from the midst of the Fire's inhabitants with lamentation of the hopeful;

I will cry to Thee with the cry of those crying for help;

I will weep to Thee with the weeping of the bereft;And I will call to Thee, Where art Thou, O Sponsor of the believers,

O Goal of the hopes of Thy knowers, O Aid of those who seek assistance,

O Friend of the hearts of the sincere and O Allah of all the world's

inhabitants!Canst Thou see Thyself Glory be to Thee My God, and Thine is the praised hearing within the Fire the voice of a slave surrendered to Thee, imprisoned there because of his violations,

tasting the favour of its torment because of his disobedience, and confined within its levels because of his sin and crime,

while he laments to Thee with the lament of one hopeful for Thy mercy, calls to Thee with the tongue of those who profess Thy Unity and entreats Thee by Thy lordship!

My Protector, so how should he remain in the chastisement, while he has hope for Thy previous clemency?

Or how should the Fire cause him pain while he expects Thy bounty and mercy?

Or how should its flames burn him, while Thou hearest his voice and seest his place?

Or how should its groaning encompass him, while Thou knowest his weakness?

Or how should he be convulsed among its levels, while Thou knowest his sincerity?

Or how should its keepers torture him while he calls out to Thee, O Lord?

Or how should he have hope of Thy bounty in freeing him from it, while Thou abandonest him within it?

Far be it from Thee! That is not what is expected of Thee, nor what is well-known of Thy bounty,

nor it is similar to the goodness and kindness Thou hast shown to those who profess Thy Unity.

So I declare with certainty that were it not for whatThou hast decreed concerning the chastisement of Thy deniers and what Thou hast foreordained concerning the everlasting home of those who stubbornly resist,

Thou wouldst make the Fire, all of it, coolness and safety,

and no one would have a place of rest or abode within it.

But Thou - holy are Thy Names - hast sworn thatThou wilt fill it with the unbelievers,

both Jinn and men, and that Thou wilt place those who stubbornly resist therein forever.

And Thou majestic is Thy eulogy said at the beginning and wernt gracious through kindness as a favour, (What? Is he who has been believer like unto him who has been ungodly? They are not equai)

My God and my Master! So I ask Theeby the power Thou hast apportioned

and the decision which Thou hast determined and imposed and through which Thou hast overcome him toward whom it has been put into effect,

that Thou forgivest me in this night and at this hour every offence I have committed, every sin I have performed,

every ugly thing I have concealedevery folly I have enacted whether I have hidden or announced it, whether I have concealed it or manifested it

and every evil act which Thou hast commanded the Noble Writers to record, those whom Thou hast appointed to watch over what appears from me

and whom Thou hast made, along with my bodily members, witness against me. And Thou wast Thyself the Watcher over me from behind them,

and the Witness of what is hidden from them but through Thy mercy Thou concealed it and through Thy bounty Thou veiled it.

[ and I ask Thee ] that Thou bestowest upon me an abundant share of every good Thou sendest down, kindness Thou conferrest,

goodness Thou unfoldest, provision Thou spreadest out, sin Thou forgivest or error Thou coverest. My Lord! My Lord! My Lord!

My God! My Master! My Protector! Owner of my bondage!O He in whose hand is my forelock!

O He who knows my effliction and my misery!O He who is aware of my poverty and indigence!My Lord! My Lord! My Lord!

I ask Thee by Thy Truth, Thy Holiness and the greatest of Thy Attributes and Names,

that Thou makest my times in the night and the day inhabited by Thy remembrance, and joined to Thy service and my works acceptable to Thee,

so that my works and my litanies may all be a single litany, and my occupation with Thy service everlasting.

My Master! O He upon whom I depend!O He to whom I complain about my states!My Lord! My Lord! My Lord!

Strengthen my bodily members in Thy service, fortify my ribs in determination

and bestow upon me earnestness in my fear of Thee and continuity in my being joined to Thy service,

so that I maymove easily toward Thee in the battlefields of the foremost, hurry to Thee among the prominent,

desire fervently Thy proximity among the fervently desirous, move nearer to Thee with the nearness of the sincere

fear Thee with the fear of those who have certitudeand gather with the believers in Thy vicinity.

O Allah, whoever desires evil for me desire [ it ] for him! And whoever deceives me deceive him!

And make me one of the most excellent of Thy slaves in Portion from Thee, the nearest of them in station to Thee

and the most elected of them in proximity to Thee. For that cannot be attained except by Thy bounty. Grant generously to me through Thy munificence,

incline toward me with Thy splendour and protect me with Thy mercy!

Make my tongue remember Thee without ceasing and my heart enthralled by Thy love!

Be gracious to me by answering me favourably, nullify my slips and forgive my lapses!

For Thou hast decreed Thy worship for Thy servants, commanded them to supplicate Thee and assured them that they would be answered.

So toward Thee, my Lord, I have turned my face; and toward Thee, my Lord, I have extended my hand.

So by Thy might, comply with my supplication, and make me attain my desires!Do not, if it pleases Thee, sever my hopes,

and spare me the evil of my enemies from among the jinn and men!

O He, whose pleasure is quickly achieved!Forgive him who owns nothing but supplication,

for Thou dost what Thou wilt. O He whose Name is a remedy, whose remembrance is a cure, and whose obedience is wealth!

Have mercy upon him whose capital is hope and whose weapon is tears!

O Ample in blessings! O Repeller of adversities!O Light of those who are lonely in the darkness! O Knower who was never taught!

Bless Muhammad and Muhammad's household!And do with me what is worthy of Thee!

And Allah bless His messenger and the holy Imams of his household and give them abundant peace

LOL. There's nothing to prove there, you rambled on about existence and nonexistence, then jumped to an erroneous conclusion of Allah, it's nothing but a nonsensical word salad, pure gibberish.

in my language we have a saying which goes like this "fox were asked, who is your witness, and he said, my tail !"

I say this to you as well kid, if you can prove me wrong, just do it in that topic.

Typical Islamic propagandist, ignores everything you say. I just said you jumped to a conclusion that did not follow anything you said, it was gibberish. That proves you wrong. Stop lying about it.
