A Prayer in These Times

O Allah,
We ask that You keep us faithful
In Your service and
in the service of Your creation
That You keep us patient
In good times and in times
that are challenging
That You help us to be grateful
And to put our trust in You
where we cannot grasp Your Wisdom

We ask You, our Lord,
that You give us the courage and strength
To speak out against injustice anywhere
And to spread peace everywhere
To act justly and kindly to those who love us
and to those who wish us harm

We ask that You keep us steadfast
In caring for our elders
and in loving our young ones
In feeding the poor
and aiding the oppressed
And in giving in charity
from the favours that You have given us

O Allah, we ask that You keep us faithful
For as long as we are Muslims
We will not lose hope.
