I bear witness, O my God, that Thou hast created me to know Thee and to worship Thee. I testify, at this moment, to my powerlessness and to Thy might, to my poverty and to Thy wealth.

There is none other God but Thee, the Help in Peril, the Self-Subsisting.

Thy name is my healing, O my God, and remembrance of Thee is my remedy. Nearness to Thee is my hope, and love for Thee is my companion. Thy mercy to me is my healing and my succor in both this world and the world to come. Thou, verily, art the All-Bountiful, the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.

Aŋaiyyun Tuquŋaruanun (Prayer for the Dead)

Una Tuquŋaruanun Aŋaiyyun Bahá’í-it piraksriatualuŋat taiguaksraq aŋaiyuliqiruanun; nipaisaḷḷaġmiŋ makitallaisa aŋaiyuliqiruat atausim ukpiktuam taiguaqtuksraugaa. Bahá’u’lláh-am kaŋiksipkaŋaġaa una aŋaiyyun piraksraq tuquŋaruanun ukiuqtutilaaqaŋaruanun sippiqługu akimiatun, taiguaqtuksraugaa tutquŋaiñŋaan, suli piraksraitchuq saattuksrauvlugu qukinaqtuaq tutguġvia Nalautchaqtim. “Alláh-u-Abhá” taiñaqtuq atausiaglugu; aasi sivullia taapqua itchaksrat uqaluich taiglugi iñuiññaġutaiḷatun. Taitqiġlugu “Alláh-u-Abhá”, aasi tugliat uqalluit taimmilugusuli iñuiññaġutaiḷatun, tainaasi maligilugit piraksriutit naatilluġit uqaluit kisiŋŋuŋaruat.

God-igiraqpin! Uvva kivgan iġñiŋalu kivgaġiraqpich ukpiġutiqagłuni Iliŋnun nalunaiñŋutaġiraġnullu, kiiññiġvigigaatin, allamun tigummiruaguŋitchut iluġnaaqłutin aglaan Ilignun kisian. Qanuq Ilvich ilumun nagliktauruaniñ nagliktaułhaaqtutin.

Savaaġiuŋ ilaa, Ilvich suliqutigiŋaiqsillaruatiin piluutiŋiññik iñuich suli tautugnaiqsitchillaruatiin patchisiŋiññik, irrusiatun qiḷagmiŋŋaqtam suli aniñiŋata nagliktuurvich. Isiġumiñaqsipkaġuŋ irvianun naglikkutikpich inŋaruam aulaġniisaaŋaniñ qaŋa nunavlu qilauvlu. Allamik God-aitchuq avatikkun, iñniqługu Suliqutigiŋaiqsillaruq, suli Sigñatuitchuaq.

Taitqigaaġlugu itchaksratun paġlan “Alláh-u-Abhá,” suli taitqigaaġlugi iñuiññaġuutailatun ukua uqaluich:

Iluqata, iḷumun, aŋaiyyuvigigikput God.

Iluqata, iḷumun, sitquġvigigikput God.

Iluqata, iḷumun, piqpagigikput God.

Iluqata, iḷumun, nanġaġikput God.

Iluqata, iḷumun, qaitchirugut quyyanmik God-mun.

(Tuquruaq aġnauniqpan, uqallagli: Uvva kivgan niviaqsiaq suli pania kivgaġiraqpich…)

The Prayer for the Dead is the only Bahá’í obligatory prayer that is to be recited in congregation; it is to be recited by one believer while all present stand in silence. Bahá’u’lláh has clarified that this prayer is required only when the deceased is over the age of fifteen, that its recital must precede interment, and that there is no requirement to face the Qiblih during its recitation. “Alláh-u-Abhá” is said once; then the first of the six verses is recited nineteen times. Then “Alláh-u-Abhá” is said again, followed by the second verse, which is recited nineteen times, and so on.

O my God! This is Thy servant and the son of Thy servant who hath believed in Thee and in Thy signs, and set his face towards Thee, wholly detached from all except Thee. Thou art, verily, of those who show mercy the most merciful.

Deal with him, O Thou Who forgivest the sins of men and concealest their faults, as beseemeth the heaven of Thy bounty and the ocean of Thy grace. Grant him admission within the precincts of Thy transcendent mercy that was before the foundation of earth and heaven. There is no God but Thee, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Generous.

Let him, then, repeat six times the greeting “Alláh-u-Abhá,” and then repeat nineteen times each of the following verses:

We all, verily, worship God.

We all, verily, bow down before God.

We all, verily, are devoted unto God.

We all, verily, give praise unto God.

We all, verily, yield thanks unto God.

We all, verily, are patient in God.

(If the dead be a woman, let him say: This is Thy handmaiden and the daughter of Thy handmaiden etc.…)

O God! Educate these children. These children are the plants of Thine orchard, the flowers of Thy meadow, the roses of Thy garden. Let Thy rain fall upon them; let the Sun of Reality shine upon them with Thy love. Let Thy breeze refresh them in order that they may be trained, grow and develop, and appear in the utmost beauty. Thou art the Giver. Thou art the Compassionate.

O my God! O Thou forgiver of sins, bestower of gifts, dispeller of afflictions!

Verily, I beseech Thee to forgive the sins of such as have abandoned the physical garment and have ascended to the spiritual world.

O my Lord! Purify them from trespasses, dispel their sorrows, and change their darkness into light. Cause them to enter the garden of happiness, cleanse them with the most pure water, and grant them to behold Thy splendors on the loftiest mount.

O my Lord! O my Lord!

I am a child of tender years. Nourish me from the breast of Thy mercy, train me in the bosom of Thy love, educate me in the school of Thy guidance and develop me under the shadow of Thy bounty. Deliver me from darkness, make me a brilliant light; free me from unhappiness, make me a flower of the rose garden; suffer me to become a servant of Thy threshold and confer upon me the disposition and nature of the righteous; make me a cause of bounty to the human world, and crown my head with the diadem of eternal life!

Verily, Thou art the Powerful, the Mighty, the Seer, the Hearer.
