St. 12/ part 1
پناه میبرم به پروردگاری که شکافنده آسمانهاست
پناه میبرم به او از شر وسوسه گرانی که در تاریکیها به گمراه کردن خلایق میپردازند
از شر تاریکیهای نفسانی ام که نور ایمانم را خاموش میکند
و از شر حسودانی که ایمان داشتن مرا برنمیتابند
I seek refuge in the Lord who is the creator of the daylight.
I seek refuge in Him from the evil of the tempters who deceive the creatures in the dark of the night.
From the evil which is inside myself, which tries to turn out the light of my faith.
And from Satan and his followers and anyone else who is jealous of believers' devotedness.
No one annoyed me as much as Satan did. He never ignored me and always laid his traps along my path.
Sometimes, he used the same trick in different situations and sometimes, he tried a new trick.
He was very diligent and never got disappointed.
One day, I was sitting under the shade of a ziziphus tree and watching a hoopoe that was walking on the ground.
Gabriel appeared and told me that You were going to allow me to return to You.
He told me that I had to wait for 40 days and then, on the 40th day, before sunset, I had to return there, under the ziziphus tree. If I avoided committing any sin during those days, I could return to You.
Just forty days...and then, I would be with You for ever!
Gabriel went and Satan came.
