Dua in Salat ul Layl

It is reported that Imam Zainul Abideen used to recite this dua before the Night Prayer (Salat ul Layl)

ﺑِﺴْﻢِ اﻟﻠّﻪِ ­ اﻟﺮﱠﺣْﻢنِ اﻟﺮﱠﺣِﻴْﻢِ
In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful
اَﻟﻠّﻬُﻢﱠ ﺻَﻞﱢ ﻋَﻠﻰ ﻣُﺤَﻤﱠﺪٍ وَ ﺁلِ ﻣُﺤَﻤﱠﺪٍ
O Allah bless Muhammad and his family
اِﻟﻬِﻲ ﻏَﺎرَتْ ﻧُﺠُﻮْمُ ﺳَﻤَﺎﺋِﻚَ
My God, the stars of Your sky have sunk
وَ ﻧَﺎﻣَﺖْ ﻋُﻴُﻮْنُ اَﻧَﺎﻣِﻚَ
and the eyes of Your people are sleeping
وَ هَﺪَاَتْ اَﺻْﻮَاتُ ﻋِﺒَﺎدِكَ وَ اَﻧْﻌَﺎﻣِﻚَ
and the voices of Your servants and animals have become silent
وَ ﻏَﻠﱠﻘَﺖِ اﻟْﻤُﻠُﻮْكُ ﻋَﻠَﻴْﻬَﺎ اَﺑْﻮَاﺑَﻬَﺎ
and the kings have locked their doors
وَ ﻃَﺎفَ ﻋَﻠَﻴْﻬَﺎ ﺣُﺮﱠاﺳُﻬَﺎ
and their guards are moving around it
وَ اﺣْﺘَﺠَﺒُﻮا ﻋَﻤﱠﻦْ ﻳَﺴْﺌَﻠُﻬُﻢْ ﺣَﺎﺟَﺔً
and they are covered from he who wishes to ask them for a need
اَوْ ﻳَﻨْﺘَﺠِﻊُ ﻣِﻨْﻬُﻢْ ﻓَﺎﺋِﺪَةً
or to get a benefit from them
وَ اَﻧْﺖَ اِﻟﻬِﻲ ﺣَﻲﱞ ﻗَﻴﱡﻮْمٌ ﻻَ ﺗَﺎْﺧُﺬُكَ ﺳِﻨَﺔٌ وَ ﻻ ﻧَﻮْمٌ
but You my God, are Ever Living,Subsistent, slumber or sleep does not overtake you (2:255)
وَ ﻻَ ﻳَﺸْﻐَﻠُﻚَ ﺷَﻴْﺊٌ ﻋَﻦْ ﺷَﻴْﺊٍ
and one thing does not occupy You from another;
اَﺑْﻮَابُ ﺳَﻤَﺎﺋِﻚَ ﻟِﻤَﻦْ دَﻋَﺎكَ ﻣُﻔَﺘﱠﺤَﺎتٌ وَ ﺧَﺰَاﺋِﻨُﻚَ ﻏَﻴْﺮُ ﻣُﻐَﻠﱠﻘَﺎتٍ
the doors of Your sky are open for he who asks You and Your treasures are never locked
وَ اَﺑْﻮَابُ رَﺣْﻤَﺘِﻚَ ﻏَﻴْﺮُ ﻣَﺤْﺠُﻮْﺑَﺎتٍ
and the doors of Your mercy are never covered
وَ ﻓَﻮَاﺋِﺪُكَ ﻟِﻤَﻦْ ﺳَﺄَﻟَﻚَ ﻏَﻴْﺮُ ﻣَﺤْﻈُﻮْرَاتٍ ﺑَﻞْ هِﻲَ ﻣَﺒْﺬُوْﻻَتٌ
and Your benefits are never forbidden for he who asks You rather they are given generously
اَﻧْﺖَ اِﻟﻬِﻲ اَﻟْﻜَﺮِﻳْﻢُ
You are my God, the Generous
اﻟﱠﺬِي ﻻَ ﺗَﺮُدﱡ ﺳَﺎﺋِﻼً ﻣِﻦَ اﻟْﻤُﺆْﻣِﻨِﻴْﻦَ ﺳَﺄَﻟَﻚَ
who does not turn away a beseecher who asks from You
وَ ﻻَ ﺗَﺤْﺘَﺠِﺐُ ﻋَﻦْ اَﺣَﺪٍ ﻣِﻨْﻬُﻢْ اَرَادَكَ
and You do not conceal Yourself from anyone of the believers who intends (to seek) you
ﻻَ وَ ﻋِﺰﱠﺗِﻚَ وَ ﺟَﻼَﻟِﻚَ وَ ﻻَ ﺗُﺨْﺘَﺰَلُ ﺣَﻮَاﺋِﺠَﻬُﻢْ دُوْﻧَﻚَ
No, by Your Honor and Your Majesty no one removes their needs other than You
وَ ﻻَ ﻳَﻘْﻀِﻴْﻬَﺎ اَﺣَﺪٌ ﻏَﻴْﺮُكَ
and no one fulfills their needs apart from You
اَﻟﻠّﻬُﻢﱠ وَ ﻗَﺪْ ﺗَﺮَاﻧِﻲ وَ وُﻗُﻮْﻓِﻲ
O Allah You see me, and my standing (before You)
وَ ذُلﱠ ﻣَﻘَﺎﻣِﻲ ﺑَﻴْﻦَ ﻳَﺪَﻳْﻚَ
and my humble position in front of You
وَ ﺗَﻌْﻠَﻢُ ﺳَﺮِﻳْﺮَﺗِﻲ
and You know my secrets
وَ ﺗَﻄﱠﻠِﻊُ ﻋَﻠﻰ ﻣَﺎ ﻓِﻲ ﻗَﻠْﺒِﻲ
and are aware of what is in my heart
وَ ﻣَﺎ ﻳَﺼْﻠِﺢُ ﺑِﻪِ اَﻣْﺮُ ﺁﺧِﺮَﺗِﻲ وَ دُﻧْﻴَﺎيَ
and of what will improve my affairs of the Hereafter and the world
اَﻟﻠّﻬُﻢﱠ اِنﱠ ذِآْﺮَ اﻟْﻤَﻮْتِ
O Allah, the remembrance of death
وَ اَهْﻮَالِ اﻟْﻤُﻄﱠﻠِﻊِ وَاﻟْﻮُﻗُﻮْفَ ﺑَﻴْﻦَ ﻳَﺪَﻳْﻚَ
and the frightening conditions of the observer and standing before You
ﻧَﻐﱠﺼَﻨِﻲ ﻣَﻄْﻌَﻤِﻲ وَﻣَﺸْﺮَﺑِﻲ
makes me stay away from my food and drink and makes me choke,
وَ اَﻏَﺼﱠﻨِﻲ ﺑِﺮِﻳْﻘِﻲ اَﻗْﻠَﻘَﻨِﻲ ﻋَﻦْ وِﺳَﺎدِي
keeps me away from my pillow
وَ ﻣَﻨَﻌَﻨِﻲ رُﻗَﺎدِي
and prevents me from sleeping
آَﻴْﻒَ ﻳَﻨَﺎمُ ﻣَﻦْ ﻳَﺨَﺎفُ ﻣَﻠَﻚَ اﻟْﻤَﻮْتِ
How can one sleep who fears the angel of death?
ﻓِﻲ ﻃَﻮَارِقِ اﻟﻠﱠﻴْﻞِ وَ ﻃَﻮَارِقِ اﻟﻨﱠﻬَﺎرِ
in the calamities of the night and the calamities of the day
ﺑَﻞْ آَﻴْﻒَ ﻳَﻨَﺎمُ اﻟْﻌَﺎﻗِﻞُ
rather how can an intelligent person sleep
وَ ﻣَﻠَﻚُ اﻟْﻤَﻮْتِ ﻻَ ﻳَﻨَﺎمُ ﻻَ ﺑِﺎﻟﻠﱠﻴْﻞِ وَ ﻻَ ﺑِﺎﻟﻨﱠﻬَﺎرِ
while the angel of death does not sleep neither at night nor in the day
وَ ﻳَﻄْﻠُﺐُ رُوْﺣَﻪُ ﺑِﺎﻟْﺒَﻴَﺎتِ
and seeks his soul in the state of sleep
وَ ﻓِﻲ ﺁﻧَﺎءِ اﻟﺴﱠﺎﻋَﺎتِ
and in the middle of the hours
اَﺳْﺄََﻟُﻚَ اﻟﺮﱠوْحَ وَ اﻟﺮﱠاﺣَﺔَ ﻋِﻨْﺪَ اﻟْﻤَﻮْتِ
I beseech You to give me ease and comfort at the time of death
وَ اﻟْﻌَﻔْﻮَ ﻋَﻨﱢﻲ ﺣِﻴْﻦَ اَﻟْﻘَﺎك
and forgiveness when I meet You
