Jawshan Kabir is a long Islamic prayer that contains 1000 names and attributes of God. Jawshan means "steel plate" or "mail" and thus the name of the prayer refers to Muhammad's heavy armor in battle. According to Muslims, God taught the prayer to him as a protection from injuries in war, instead of wearing armor. The prayer was written by Ali ibn Husayn Zayn al-Abidin and mentioned in Balad al-Amin. Partial English translation from the Jawshan prayer: I entreat You by Your Names: O the All-Kind and Caring, O the All-Bounteous and Favoring, O the Supreme Ruler and All-Requiting, O the All-Forgiving and Demonstrating, O the All-Proving and Demonstrating, O the Absolute, Eternal Authority, O the All-Glorified, Who is absolutely free from all deficiencies and imperfections and from doing anything wrong or in vain, O He Whose help is always sought, O the Owner of all bounty and goodness and eternal exposition, O He Whose protection is sufficient against all fear and danger, All-Glorified are You; there is no deity but You! Mercy! Mercy! Save us from the Fire!
