"O Allah! We seek goodness from Your Knowledge and with Your Power (and Might) We seek strength, and We ask from You Your Great Blessings, because You have the Power and We do not have the power. You Know everything and I do not know, and You have knowledge of the unseen. Oh Allah! If in Your Knowledge this action (We are about to take) is better for my religion and faith, for our life and end [death], for here [in this world] and the hereafter then make it destined for us and make it easy for us and then add blessings [baraka'] in it, for us. O Allah! In Your Knowledge if this action is bad for us, bad for our religion and faith, for our life and end [death], for here [in this world] and the hereafter then turn it away from us and turn us away from it and whatever is better for us, ordain [destine] that for us and then make us satisfied with it."


عَنْ عُمَيْرِ بْنِ هَانِئٍ الْعَنْسِيِّ ، قَالَ : سَمِعْتُ عَبْدَ اللَّهِ بْنَ عُمَرَ ، يَقُولُ : كُنَّا قُعُودًا عِنْدَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ، فَذَكَرَ الْفِتَنَ فَأَكْثَرَ فِي ذِكْرِهَا حَتَّى ذَكَرَ فِتْنَةَ الْأَحْلَاسِ ، فَقَالَ قَائِلٌ : يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ وَمَا فِتْنَةُ الْأَحْلَاسِ ؟ قَالَ : ” هِيَ هَرَبٌ وَحَرْبٌ ، ثُمَّ فِتْنَةُ السَّرَّاءِ ، دَخَنُهَا مِنْ تَحْتِ قَدَمَيْ رَجُلٍ مِنْ أَهْلِ بَيْتِي يَزْعُمُ أَنَّهُ مِنِّي ، وَلَيْسَ مِنِّي ، وَإِنَّمَا أَوْلِيَائِي الْمُتَّقُونَ ، ثُمَّ يَصْطَلِحُ النَّاسُ عَلَى رَجُلٍ كَوَرِكٍ عَلَى ضِلَعٍ ، ثُمَّ فِتْنَةُ الدُّهَيْمَاءِ ، لَا تَدَعُ أَحَدًا مِنْ هَذِهِ الْأُمَّةِ إِلَّا لَطَمَتْهُ لَطْمَةً ، فَإِذَا قِيلَ : انْقَضَتْ ، تَمَادَتْ يُصْبِحُ الرَّجُلُ فِيهَا مُؤْمِنًا ، وَيُمْسِي كَافِرًا ، حَتَّى يَصِيرَ النَّاسُ إِلَى فُسْطَاطَيْنِ ، فُسْطَاطِ إِيمَانٍ لَا نِفَاقَ فِيهِ ، وَفُسْطَاطِ نِفَاقٍ لَا إِيمَانَ فِيهِ ، فَإِذَا كَانَ ذَاكُمْ فَانْتَظِرُوا الدَّجَّالَ ، مِنْ يَوْمِهِ ، أَوْ مِنْ غَدِهِ ” أبو داود

Importance of a good shaykh by Shaykh Abd'al-Qadir al-Jilani Radi Allahu anhu

Al Ghawth al-Adham Shaykh Sayyad Abd'al-Qadir al-Jilani Radi 'Allahu anhu said: You must work hard to ensure that your hearts are not locked out of the door of His nearness. Be sensible! You are getting nowhere. You must seek the company of a Shaykh who is learned in the law [hukm] and knowledge ['ilm] of Allah (Almighty and Glorious is He), and who will show you the way toward Him. Without seeing the successful [muflih], one cannot succeed. If a person does not seek the company of scholars who put their knowledge into practice ['ulama 'ummal], he is a chicken from an egg abandoned by the rooster and the mother hen.

Seek the fellowship of those who enjoy fellowship with the Lord of Truth (Almighty and Glorious is He). What each of you should do, when the night has grown dark and people have gone to bed and their voices are silent, is get up, take an ablution [yatawadda'], perform two cycles of ritual prayer [yusalli rak'atain] and say: "O my Lord, guide me to one of Your righteous servants near to You, so that he may guide me toward You and make me familiar with Your path." The instrument [sabab] is necessary. Allah (Almighty and Glorious is He) was quite capable of guiding [His servants] to Him without the Prophets [anbiya']. Be sensible! You are getting nowhere. You must awaken from your heedless folly. As the Beloved Prophet Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam has said: If someone relies entirely on his own subjective judgement, he will go astray. Try to find someone who will be a mirror for the face of your religion [din], just as you look in the mirror to check the appearance of your outer face, your turban and your hair. Be sensible! What is this crazy foolishness? You say, "I don't need anyone to teach me," and yet the Beloved Prophet Salla Allahu ta'ala 'alayhi wa Sallam has said: The believer is the believer's mirror [al-mu'minu mir'atu 'l-mu'min].

When the believer's faith is sound, he comes to be a mirror for all creatures. They behold their religious faces [wujuh adyanihim] reflected in the mirror of his speech, every time they see him and get close to him. What is this craziness? Not a moment goes by without your begging Allah (Almighty and Glorious is He) to provide you with more than you already have to eat, to drink, and to wear, with more sexual opportunities and more income. These are not things that could increase or decrease, even if you were to be joined in your plea by every supplicant whose prayers are answered [da 'in mujab].

Supplication [da 'wa] will neither increase one's sustenance by so much as an atom, nor reduce it by an atom. This is a foregone conclusion [mafrugh minhu]. You must devote your attention to doing what you have been commanded to do, and to avoiding what you have been forbidden to do. You should not worry about that which is bound to come your way, because He guarantees that it will come to you. Allotted shares [aqsam] arrive at their appointed times, whether they be sweet or bitter, whether you like them or dislike them.

The people [of the Way] attain to a condition in which they no longer have any prayer of supplication [du'a] or request [su'al] to make. They do not beg [in their prayers] to gain advantages, nor to get rid of disadvantages. Their supplication comes to be a matter concerning their hearts, sometimes for their own sake and sometimes for the sake of all creatures, so they utter the prayer of supplication without conscious premeditation [fi ghaiba].
"O '' Allah, endow us with good behaviour in Your company under all circumstances!
[When the believer's faith is sound], fasting [sawm], prayer [salat], remembrance [dhikr] and all acts of obedience [ta 'at] become second nature to him, mingled with his flesh and blood. Then he receives protection from Allah (Almighty and Glorious is He) under all circumstances. The restraint of the law [hukm] does not desert him, not for an instant, while he is on this course. The law comes to be like the vessel in which he sits, as he travels over the ocean of the power [qudra] of his Lord (Almighty and Glorious is He). He goes on traveling over it until he arrives at the shore of the hereafter, at the shore of the ocean of grace and the hand of nearness. Thus he is sometimes in the company of creatures and at certain times in the company of the Creator. His work and toil are with creatures, while his relaxation is with the Creator.
From Shaykh 'Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani, "The Sublime Revelation (Al-Fath ar-Rabbani)," translated by Muhtar Holland (Al-Baz Publishing, Houston, 1992), p. 426-8.
On the authority of Abu Hurayrah r.a., who said that Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. said: Allah SWT said:

Whosoever shows enmity to someone devoted to Me, I shall be at war with him. My servant draws not near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have enjoined upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him, and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it. I do not hesitate about anything as much as I hesitate about [seizing] the soul of My faithful servant: he hates death and I hate hurting him. (It was related by al-Bukhari)

“Allah! There is no God save Him, the Alive, the Eternal. Neither slumber nor sleep overtaketh Him. Unto Him belongeth whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is in the earth. Who is he that intercedeth with Him save by His leave? He knoweth that which is in front of them and that which is behind them, while they encompass nothing of His knowledge save what He will. His throne includeth the heavens and the earth, and He is never weary of preserving them. He is the Sublime, the Tremendous.”

The Supplication of Imam Ali bin Abi Talib (a.s.)


بِسمِ اللهِ الرّحمنِ الرَّحيمِ

(Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the merciful.

اللّهُمّّ إنِّي أسألك بِرَحمَتِكَ الّتي وَسِعَتْ كُلَّ شَيءٍ

(Allahomma inni as’aloka birahmatikal-lati wasi’at kolla shay’,)

O Allah! I beseech You; by Mercy, which embraces all things;

وَبِقُوَّتِكَ الَّتي قَهَرتَ بِها كُلَّ شيءٍ وخَضَعَ لَها كُلُّ شيءٍ وَذّلَّ لَها كُلُّ شيءٍ

(Wa biqowatikal-lati qaharta biha kolla shay’ wa khada’a laha kollo shay’, wa dhalla laha kollo shay’,)

وَبِجَبَروتِكَ الَّتي غَلَبتَ بِها كُلَّ شيءٍ

(Wa bijabaroutikal-lati ghalabta biha kolla shay’,)

And bay Your Invincibility, through which You have conquered all things;

And by Your Greatness, which has filled all things,

وَبِسُلطانِكَ الّذي عَلا كُلَّ شيءٍ

(Wa bi-soltanikal-ladhi ‘ala kolla shay’,)

And by your Authority, which towered over all things,

وَبِوَجهِكَ الباقي بَعدَ فَناءِ كُلِّ شيءٍ

(Wa bi-wajhikal-baqi ba’ada fana’i kolli shay’,)

And by Your Self, which is abiding after all things are annihilated;

وَبِأسمائِكَ الَّتي مَلأَتْ أركانَ كُلِّ شيءٍ

(Wa bi-asma’ikal-lati mala’at arkana kolli shay’,)

And by Your Distinctions, which have occupied the beings of all things;

وَبِعِلمِكَ الَّذي أحاطَ بِكُلِّ شيءٍ

(Wa bi’ilmikal-ladhi ahata bikolli shay’,)

And by Your Cognition, which encompasses all things;

وَبِنُورِ وَجهِكَ الَّذي أضاءَ لَهُ كُلُّ شَيءٍ

(Wa binuri wajhikal-ladhi ada’a laho kollo shay’,)

And by the Light of Your Face, by which all things are illuminated.

يا نُورُ يا قُدُّس يا أوَّلَ الأوَّلينَ ويا آخِرَ الآخَرينَ

(Ya nuru ya qoddus ya awwalal-awwalin wa ya akhiral-akhirin,)

O Light! O All-Holy! O First of those who are the first and Last of those who are the last!

اللّهُمَّ اغْفِر لِيَ الذُّنُوبَ الّتي تَهتِكُ العِصَمَ

(Allahomma ighfir li-yal dhonoubal-lati tahtikol ‘isam,)

O Allah! Forgive me those sins which destroy the in fallibilities.

اللّهُمَّ اغْفِر لِيَ الذُّنوبَ الّتي تُنزِلُ النِّقَمَ

(Allahomma ighfir li-yal dhonoubal-lati tonzilol niqam,)

O Allah! Forgive me those guilts which bring down retributions.

اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِر لِيَ الذُّنوبَ الَّتي تُغَيِّرُ النِّعَمَ

(Allahomma ighfir li-yel dhonoubul-llati toghayyrun ni’am,)

O Allah! Forgive me those guilts which restrain graces.

اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِر لِيَ الذُّنوبَ الَّتي تَحبِسُ الدُّعاءَ

(Allahomma ighfir li-yal dhonoubal-lati tahbisul du’a,)

O Allah! Forgive me those guilts which restrain supplication.

اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِر لِيَ الذُّنوبَ الَّتي تُنزِلُ البَلاءَ

(Allahomma ighfir li-yal dhonoubal-lati tonzilul bala’,)

O Allah! Forgive me those guilts which bring the woes.

اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِر لِيَ الذُّنوبَ الَّتي تَقطَعُ الرَّجاءَ

(Allahomma ighfir li-yal dhonoubal-lati taqtaorraja’,)

O Allah! Forgive me those sins which lessen the hope.

اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِر لِيَ كُلَّ ذَنْبٍ أذْنَبتُهُ وَكُلَّ خَطيئَةٍ أخْطَأتُها

(Allahomma ighfir li-yal kolla dhanbi adhnabtoho wa kolla khati’ati akht’atoha,)

O Allah! Forgive me every guilt I have committed and every error I have made.

اللَّهُمَّ إنَّي أَتَقَرَّبُ إلَيكَ بِذِكرِكَ وَأسْتَشْفِعُ بِكَ إلى نَفْسِكَ

(Allahomma inni ataqarrabo ilayka bidhikrika wa astashfi’o bika ila nafsik,)

O Allah! I approach You, through remembrance of You; and I seek intercession from You with Yourself;

وَأسْألُكَ بِجودِكَ أنْ تُدْنِيَني مِنْ قُربِكَ وَأنْ تُوزِعَني شُكْرَكَ وَأنْ تُلْهِمَني ذِكْرَكَ

(wa as’aloka bijoudika an tudniyani min qorbika wa an touzi’ani shukraka wa an tulhimani dhikrak,)

I beg You through Your Munificence, to bring me nearer to Your Proximity; and provide me with gratitude to You; and inspire me with Your Remembrance.

اللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أسْألُكَ سُؤالَ خاضِعٍ مُتَذَلِلٍ خاشِعٍ أن تُسامِحَني وَتَرحَمَني

(Allahomma inni as’aloka su’ala khad’i motadhallili khashi’i an tusamihani wa tarhamani,)

O Allah! Surely I beg You with the pleading of a submissive, humble and lowly man to show me forbearance and have apity on me;

وَتَجْعَلَني بِقِسْمِكَ راضِياً قانِعاً وفي جَميعِ الأحْوالِ مُتَواضِعاً

(Wa taj’alani biqasamika radi-yan qani’an wa fi jami’’l ahwali motawadi’an,)

To make me pleased and content with what You apportion me; and make me modest in all positions.

اللَّهُمَّ وَأسألُكَ سُؤالَ مَنْ اشْتَدَّت فاقَتهُُ

(Allahomma wa as’aloka so’ala man ish-taddat faqatoh,)

O Allah! I beg You with the pleading of one whose pauperism is aggravated;

وَأنْزَلَ بِكَ عِنْدَ الشَدائِدِ حاجَتَهُ وَعَظُمَ في ما عِنْدَكَ رَغْبَتُهُ

(Wa anzala bika’inda shada’id hajataho wa’adoma fima ‘indaka raghbatoho,)

And who has stated at You, in difficulties, his need; and whose desire for what have with you became great.

اللَّهُمَّ عَظُمَ سُلطانُكَ وَعَلا مَكانُكَ وَخَفِيَ مَكْرُكَ وَظَهَرَ أمرُكَ

(Allahomma ‘adoma soltanok wa ‘ala makanok wa khafiya makrok wa dahara ‘amrok,)

O Allah! Your Kingdom is magnificent, High is Your place; and Your Contrivance is hidden; and Your Command is over come;

وَغَلَبَ قَهْرُكَ وَجَرَتْ قُدْرَتُكَ وَلا يُمْكِنُ الفِرارُ مِنْ حُكُومَتِكَ

(Wa ghalaba qahrok wa jarat qotratak wa la yomkinol firaro min hokoumatika,)

Your Dominance is overwhelming and Your Power is overriding, so it is impossible to escape from Your Authority.

اللَّهُمَّ لا أجِدُ لِذُنُوبي غافِراً ولا لِقَبائِحي ساتِراً ولا لِشيءٍ مِنْ عَمَلِيَ القَبيحِ بالحَسَنِ مُبَدِّلاً غَيْرُكَ

(Allahomma la ‘ajido lidhonoubi ghafiran wala liqaba’ihi satiran wala lishay’in min ‘amaliyal qabih bilhasani mobaddilan ghayrak,)

O Lord! I find no forgiver of my guilts; and no concealer for my abominations; and no changer for any of my evil doings into good deeds except You.

لا إلهَ إلاّ أنْتَ سُبْحانَكَ وَبِحَمدِكَ ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسي وَتَجَرَّأتُ بِجَهلي

(La ilaha illa anta sobhanaka wa bihamdika dalamto nafsi wa tajarr’ato bijahli,)

There is no god but You! Glory to You, and in Your Prais! I have wronged myself; and I hazard in my ignorance;

وَسَكَنْتُ إلى قَدِيمِ ذِكرِكَ لِي وَمَنِّكَ عَلَيَّ

(Wa sakanto ila qadimi dhikrika li wa mannika ‘alayya,)

And I have relied on Your constant remembrance of me and Your grace towards me.

اللَّهُمَّ مَوْلايَ كَمْ مِن قَبيحٍ سَتَرتَهُ وَكَمْ مِنْ فادِحٍ مِنَ البَلاءِ أقَلْتَهُ

(Allahomma mowlay kam min qabihi satartah w kam min fadihi minal bala’i aqaltah,)

O Allah! My Lord! How many unpleasant things You have concealed! and How many tribulations You have warded off!

وَكَمْ مِنْ عِثارٍ وَقَيْتَهُ وَكَم مِنْ مَكْروهٍ دَفَعْتَهُ

(Wakam min ‘itharin waqaytah wakam min makrohin dafa’tah,)

How many stumbling blocks You have removed! and how many inconveniences You have staved it of!

وَكَم مِن ثَناءٍ جَميلٍ لَسْتُ أهْلاً لَهُ نَشَرتَهُ

(Wakam min thana’in jamilin lasto ahlan laho nashartah,)

And how many beautiful commendation for which I was unworthy, You have extended!

اللَّهُمَّ عَظُمَ بَلائي وَأفْرَطَ سُوءُ حالي وَقَصُرت بِي أعْمالي

(Allahomma ‘adoma bala’i wa afrata bi sou’hali wa qasorat bi ‘a’mali,)

O Allah! My tribulations are tremendous; and my badnees state is excessive; and my good deeds are inadequate;

وَقَعَدَتْ بي أغْلالِي وَحَبَسني عَن نَفْعي بُعْدُ آمالِي

(Wa qa’adat bi aghlali wa habasani ‘an nafi b’odo amali,)

My impediments have tied me down; and my expectations farness has held me from my welfare;

وَخَدَعَتْني الدٌُّنيا بِغُرورِها وِنَفْسي بِخِيانَتِها وَمِطَالِي

(Wa khada’atni ad donya bighorouriha wanafsi bikhyanatiha wa mitali,)

And the present life with its delusions; and my own soul with its temptations; and my delaying have mislead me.

يا سيِّدي فَأسألُكَ بِعِزَّتِكَ أن لا يَحجُبَ عَنْكَ دُعائِي سُوءُ عَمَلي وَفَعالِي

(Ya Sayydi fa as’aloka bi’izaatika an la yahjoba ‘anka du’a’i sou’ ‘amali wa fi’ali,)

my Master! So I ask You, by Your Majesty, do not let my evil deeds and acts veil my supplication of You;

وَلا تَفْضَحني بَخَفِيِّ ما اطَّلَعْتَ عَلَيهِ مِن سِرِّي

(Wala tafdahni bikhafiyi mat tal’ata ‘alaihi min sirri,)

Do not disclose me through the hidden things You know of my secrets;

ولا تُعاجِلْني بالعُقُوبَةِ على ما عَمِلتُهُ في خَلَواتي مِن سُوءِ فِعْلِي وإساءتي ودَوامِ تَفْريطِي وَجَهالَتي وَكَثْرةِ شَهَواتي وَغَفْلَتي

(Wala to’ajilni bil ‘oqoubati ‘ala ma ‘amiltoho fi khalawati, min sou’ f’ili wa isa’ati wadawam tafriti wajahalati wakathrat shahawati wa ghaflati,)

And do not hasten me by punishment for what I have done through my in privates; of my evil act, my misdeed, my continuous failing, my ignorance, and my excessive appetencies and negligence.

وَكُنِ اللَّهُمَّ بِعِزَّتِكَ لِي في الأحْوالِ كُلِّها رَؤوفاً وَعَلَيَّ في جَميعِ الأمُورِ عَطُوفاً

(Wa koni allahommah i’izzatika li fil ahwali koliha ra’ofan wa ‘alayya fi jami’il omouri ‘atoufa,)

And by Your Majesty, O Allah! be Kind to me in all circumstances; and be Compassionate to me through all matters.

إلهي وَرَبِّي مَنْ لِي غَيْرُكَ أسْألُهُ كَشفَ ضُرِّي وَالنَّظَرَ في أمْري

(Ilahi warabbi man li ghayroka as’aloho kashfa dorri wannadara fi amri,)

My Allah and my Lord! Who is the other than you I have to seek to dispelling my woe and deciding in my affairs?

إلهي وَمَولايَ أجْرَيتَ عَلَيَّ حُكْماً اتَّبَعْتَ فيه هَوى نَفْسي

(Ilahi wa mawlaya ajrata ‘alayya hokman ittab’ato fihi hawa nafsi,)

My Allah and my Lord! You put into effect, through me, a decree in which I followed the low desires of my own instincts;

وَلَمْ أحْتَرِس فِيهِ مِنْ تَزيينِ عَدُّي فَغَرَّني بِما أهْوى وَأسْعَدَهُ على ذلِكَ القَضاءُ

(Walam ahtaris fihi min tazyini ‘adowi fagharrani bima ahwa wa as'adaho ala dhalikal qada’,)

And I did not gurad of my enemies enticements in it who deluded me through my base desires and therein destiny succeeded.

فَتَجاوَزْتُ بِما جَرى عَلَيَّ مِن ذلِكَ بَعْضَ حُدودِكَ وَخالَفْتُ بَعْضَ أوامِرِكَ

(Fatajawaztu bima jara ‘alayya min dhalika b’ada hodoudika wa khalafto b’ada awamirik,)

So because of that I transgressed some of the limits You set for me and I broke some of Your orders.

فَلَكَ الحَمْدُ عَلَيَّ في جَميعِ ذلِكَ وَلا حُجَّةَ لي في ما جَرى عَلَيَّ فِيهِ قَضاؤُكَ وَألْزَمَني حُكْمُكَ وَبَلاؤُكَ

(Falakal hamdo ‘alayya jami’ dhalika wala hodjata li fima jara ‘alayya fihi qada’oka wa alzamani hokmoka wa bala’ok,)

Then the Paris is yours against me in all of that and I have no defence against what Your Destiny puts into effect for me; nor in what Your Judgement and Your Tribulation imposes upon me.

وَقَدْ أتَيْتُكَ يا إلهي بَعْدَ تَقْصيري وَإسْرافِي على نَفْسي مُعْتَذِراً نادِماً مُنْكَسِراً مُسْتَقيلاً مُسْتَغْفِراً مُنيباً مُقِرَّاً مُذْعِناً مُعتَرِفاً

(Wa qad ataytoka ya ilahi b’ada taqsiri wa israfi ‘ala nafsi m’otadhiran nadiman monkasiran mostaqilan mostaghfiran moniban moqirran, modh’inan m’otarifa,)

And I already returned to You, O Allah, after my dereliction and my excesses of my self, in apologetical, regretful, broken-hearted, resigning, asking forgiveness, repenting, recognising, obedient and confessing position.

لا أجدُ مَفَرَّاً مِمّا كانَ مِنَّي ولا مَفْزَعاً أتَوَجَّهُ إلَيهِ في أمْري غَيْرَ قُبُولِكَ عُذْري وإدْخالِكَ إيَّايَ في سَعَةِ مِنْ رَحْمَتِكَ

(La ajido mafarran mimma kana mini wala mafza’an atawajaho ilayhi fi amri ghayra qaboulika ‘odhri wa idkhalika iyyaya fi sa’ati rahmatik,)

I don’t find inescapable of what I have done and nor any shelter to which I may turn in my concerns other than Your Acceptance of my pretex and Your inclusing me into the scope of Your Mercy.

اللَّهُمَّ فَاقْبَلْ عُذْري وَارْحَمْ شِدَّةَ ضُرَّي وَفُكَّني مِنْ شَدَّ وَثاقِي

(Allahomma faqbal ‘odhri warham shiddata dorri wa fokkani min shaddi wathaqi,)

O Allah! Accept my pretense; and have mercy upon my woe intension; and release me from my bond.

يا رَبِّ ارْحَمْ ضَعْفَ بَدَني وَرِقَّةَ جِلْدِي وَدِقَّةَ عَظْمِي

(Ya rabbi irrham d’afa badani w riqqata jildi wa diqqata ‘admi,)

My Lord! Have mercy upon the weakness of my body; and the delicacy of my skin; and the tenuity of my bones.

يا مَنْ بَدَءَ خَلْقِي وَذِكْرِي وَتَرْبِيَتي وَبِرِّي وَتَغْذِيَتي

(Ya man bada’a khalqi wadhikri wa tarbiyati wa birri wa taghdhiyati,)

O! Who originated my creation; my remembering, my nurture; my charity; and my sustaining;

هَبْني لإِبْتِداءِ كَرَمِكَ وَسالِفِ بِرِّكَ بِي

(Habni libtida’i karamika wa salifi birrika bi,)

Bestow upon the continuum of Your Benevolence and Your previous goodness to me for the sake of Your creating me!

يا إلهي وَسَيِّدي وَرَبِّي أتُراكَ مَعَذِّبي بِنارِكَ بَعْدّ تَوْحيدِكَ

(Ya ilahi wa sayydi wa rabbi atoraka mo’adhibi binarika b’ada tawhidik,)

O May Allah! My Master and my Lord! Will You tormented me in Your hell after my monotheism of you?

وَبَعدَ ما انْطَوى عَلَيهِ قَلْبي مِنْ مَعْرِفَتِكَ وَلَهِجَ بِهِ لِسانِي مِنْ ذِكْرِكَ

(Wa b’ada mantawa ‘alayhi qalbi min ma’rifatika wa lahija bihi lisani min dhikrik,)

And after what has my heart implied the knowledge of You; and what has my tongue constantly mentioned the remembrance of You;

وَاعْتَقَدَهُ ضَميرِي مِنْ حُبِّكَ وَبَعدَ صِدْقِ اعْتِرافِي وَدُعائِي خاضِعاً لِرُبُوبِيَّتِكَ

(Wa ‘taqadaho damiri min hobbika wa b’ada sidqi ‘itirafi wa du’a’i khadi’an liroboubiyatik,)

And what my conscience has hold of Your Love; and after my sincere confession and my supplicating You find me humble before Your Lordship?

هَيْهات أنْتَ أكْرَمُ مِنْ أنْ تُضَيِّعَ مَنْ رَبَّيْتَهُ أو تُبْعِدَ مَنْ أدْنَيْتَهُ

(Hayhat anta akramo min an todayy’a man rabbayta aw toba’da man adnaytah,)

How far from You! You are more generous than that You should waste one whom You have nurtured; or banish one whom You have approximated;

أو تُشَرِّدَ مَنْ آوَيْتَهُ أو تُسَلِّمَ إلى البَلاءِ مَنْ كَفَيْتَهُ وَرَحِمْتَهُ

(Aw tosharrida man awayta aw tosallima ilal bala’ man kafaytah wa rahimtah,)

Or drive away one whom You have harboured; or submit to afflictions one whom You have protected and shown mercy.

وَلَيْتَ شِعْري يا سَيِّدي وإلهي ومَوْلايَ أتُسَلِّطُ النارَ على وُجُوهٍ خَرَّتْ لِعَظَمَتِكَ ساجِدَةً

(Wa layta sh’iri ya sayydi wa ilahi wa mawlay atusallito nara ‘ala woujouhin kharrat li’adamatika sajidah,)

O, My Master, My Allah My Lord! If I only knew whether You will give the Fire domination over the faces which have submissively bowed in prostration against Your Greatness.

وعلى ألْسُنٍ نَطَقَتْ بِتَوحِيدِكَ صادِقَةً وبِشُكْرِكَ مادِحَةً

(Wa ‘ala alsonin nataqat bitawhidika sadiqah wa bishokrika madiha,)

Or upon the tongues which have sincerely confirmed Your monotheism and with thanks to You in praise;

وعلى قُلُوبٍ اعْتَرَفَتْ بإلهِيَّتِكَ مُحَقِّقَةً

(Wa ‘ala qoloubin ‘itarafat bi ilahi-yatika mohaqqiqah,)

And upon the hearts which have acknowledged Your Divinity with conviction;

وعلى ضَمائِرَ حَوَتْ مِنَ العِلْمِ بكَ حَتّى صارَتْ خاشِعَةً

(Wa ‘ala dama’ira hawat minal ‘ilmi bika hatta sarat khashi’ah,)

And upon the minds which have gathered such knowledge of You until they have become godly;

وعلى جَوارِحَ سَعَتْ إلى أوطانِ تَعَبُّدِكَ طائِعَةً وَأشارَت بِاسْتِغْفارِكَ مُذْعِنَةً

(Wa ‘ala jawariha sa’at ila awtan ta’abbokida ta’i’ah wa asharat bistaghfarika modh’inah,)

And upon the obedient limbs which endeavoured to the places of Your worship and entreat Your Forgiveness submissively.

ما هكَذا الظُنُّ بِكَ ولا أُخْبِرْنا بِفَضْلِكَ عَنْكَ يا كَريمُ

(Ma hakadha danno bika wala okhbirna bifadlika ‘anka ya karim,)

Thus is not expected from You, nor we has such been recorded -thanks to Your Bounty- concerning You, O All- Generous!

يا رَبِّ وأنْتَ تَعْلَمُ ضَعْفي عَن قَليلٍ مِن بَلاءِ الدُّنْيا وَعُقُوباتِها

(Ya rabbi wa anta t’alam d’afi an qalili min bala’i donya wa ‘oqoubatiha,)

O my Lord! So You know my weakness in standing up to a little of this world’s affliction and it’s consequences;

وما يَجْري فيها مِنَ المَكارِهِ على أهْلِها

(Wama yajri fiha minal makarihi ‘ala ahliha,)

And what would happen of the difficulties up on it’s dwellers;

على أنَّ ذلِكَ بَلاءٌ وَمَكرُوهٌ قَليلٌ مَكْثُهُ يَسيرٌ بَقاؤُهُ قَصيرٌ مُدَّتُهُ

(Ala anna dhalika bala’o wa makrouho qalilon makthoho yasiron, baqa’oh, qasiron moddatoh,)

However it is an affliction and ordeal whose stay is momentary, -ransient and short- lived.

فَكَيفَ احتِمالِي لِبَلاءِ الآخِرَةِ وَجَليلِ وُقُوعِ المَكارِهِ فيها

(Fakayfa ihtimali libala’il akhirati wa jalili wouqou’il makarih fiha,)

So How can I endure the hereafters affliction and the great ordeals that occur within it?

وَهُوَ بَلاءٌ تَطُولُ مُدَّتُهُ وَيَدومُ مَقامُهُ وَلا يُخَفَّفُ عَن أهلِهِ

(Wahwa bala’o tatol moddatoh wa yadoum maqamoh wala yokhaffaf an ahlihi,)

Also it is an affliction whose period is prolonged; whose station lasts and which shall never be alleviated for off it’s deservings;

لأنَّهُ لا يَكُونُ إلاّ عَنْ غَضَبِكَ وَانْتِقامِكَ وَسَخَطِكَ وهذا ما لا تَقُومُ لَهُ السَمواتُ والأرضُ

(Li-annaho la yakounu illa ghadabika wa intiqamika wa sakhatika; wahadha mala taqoumo lahol samawato wal ard,)

Since it is only in fact as a result of Your Wrath, Vengeance and Anger which cannot be withstood by the heavens and the earth.

يا سَيِّدي فَكَيفَ بِي وأنا عَبْدُكَ الضَّعيفُ الذَّليلُ الحَقيرُ المِسكِينُ المُستَكينُ

(Ya sayydi fakayfa bi wa ana ‘abdukal da-’ifol dhalilol haqirol miskinol mostakin,)

O My Master! So what about me? For I am Your weak, lowly, base, wretched and miserable servant.

يا إلهي وَرَبِّي وسَيِّدي وَمَولايَ لأيِّ الأمُورِ إلَيْكَ أشْكُو ولِما مِنْها أضِجُّ وَأبْكي

(Ya ilahi wa rabbi wa sayydi wa mawlaya li-’ayyil ‘omouri ilayka ashka ashko wa lima minha adijjo wa abki,)

O My Allah! My Master! My Lord! Which matters shall I plead to You? For which of them shall I lament and weep?

لألِيمِ العَذابِ وشِدَّتِهِ أمْ لِطُولِ البَلاءِ ومُدَّتِهِ

(La alimil ‘adhabi wa shiddatih, am litoulil bala’i wa moddatih,)

For the agony of punishment and their severity? Or for the severity of affliction and its duration?

فَلَئِنْ صَيَّرتَني لِلْعُقوباتِ مَعَ أعْدائِكِ وَجَمَعْتَ بَينِي وَبَينَ أهْلِ بَلائِكِ

(Fala’i sayyartani lil-’oqoubati ma’a ‘ada’ika wa jama’ta bayni wabayna ahli bala’ik,)

Therefore if You subjected me to the punishments with Your enemies; and gathered me with the people of Your Afflictions;

وَفَرَّقْتَ بَيْني وَبَينَ أحِبَّائِكَ وأوْلِيائِكِ

(Wa farraqta bayni wabayna ahibba’ika wa awli-ya-’ik,)

And separated me from Your favourites and Your devouts;

فَهَبْني يا إلهي وسَيِّدي وَمَولاي وَرَبِّي صَبَرتُ علي عَذابِكَ فَكَيفَ أصْبِرُ علي فِراقِكَ

(Fahabni ya ilahi a sayydi wa mawlaya wa rabbi sabarto ‘ala ‘adhabika’ fakayfa asbiro ‘ala firaqik,)

Then suppose, my Allah, my Master, my Protector and my Lord, that I can patiently endure Your Chastisement; so how can I endure the separation from You?

وَهَبْني صَبَرْتُ علي حَرِّ نارِكَ فَكَيفَ أصْبِرُ عَنِ النَّظَرِ إلى كَرامَتِكَ

(Wahabni sabarto ‘ala harri narika fakayfa asbiro ani nadari ila karamatik,)

And suppose that I can patiently against the heat of Your hill, and how can I wait with out looking to Your Generosity?

أمْ كَيفَ أسْكُنُ في النّارِ وَرَجائِي عَفْوُكَ

(Am kayfa askono fin nari, wa raja’i afwik,)

Or how can I inhabit in the Fire while my hope is Your forgiveness?

فَبِعزَّتِكَ يا سَيَّدي وَمَولاي أقْسِمُ صادِقاً لَئِنْ تَرَكْتَني ناطِقاً لأضِجَّنَ إلَيكَ بَينَ أهْلِها ضَجيجَ الآمِلِينَ

(Fabi-’izzatika ya sayydi wa mawlaya, ‘oqsimo sadiqan, La’in taraktani natiqan la’adijjanna ilayka bayna ahliha dajijal amilin,)

So by Your Might, my Master and my Protector, I swear candidly, if You leave me articulately; I will roar before You, among the inmates of the Fire, with the lamentation of the hopeful;

ولأصْرُخَنَّ إلَيكَ صُراخَ المُسْتَصْرِخينَ ولأبْكِيَنَّ عَلَيْكَ بُكاءَ الفاقِدِينَ

(Wala asrokhanna ilayka sorakhal mostasrikhina wala ‘abkiyanna ‘alayka boka’al faqidin,)

I will cry to You with the callers crying for help; and I will weep before You with the weeping of the bereft;

ولاُنادِيَنَّكَ أيْنَ كُنْتَ يا وَلِيَّ المُؤْمِنِينَ

(Wala ‘onadi-yannaka ayna konta ya waliyyal m’ominin,)

I will call upon You: Where were You? O supporter of the believers!

يا غَايَةَ آمالِ العارِفِينَ يا غِياثَ المُسْتَغيثينَ يا حَبيبَ قُلُوبَ الصَّادِقِينَ

(Ya ghayata aamali arifin ya ghiyathal mostaghithin ya habiba qoloubil sadiqin,)

O the knowings of you goal hopes, O the help needy reliever O the truthful’s hearts endearing;

ويا إلهَ العالَمينَ أفَتُراكَ سُبْحانَكَ يا إلهي وَبِحَمدِكَ تَسْمَعُ فيها صَوْتَ عَبْدٍ سُجِنَ فيها بِمُخالَفَتِهِ

(Wa ilahal ‘alamin afatoraka sobhanaka ya ilahi wa bihamdik, tasma’o fiha sawta ‘abdin, moslimin sojina fiha bimokhala fatih,)

O the worlds’ God! Can You see Yourself -Glory be to You, my Allah, and with praise to you- hearing the servant’s voice within the fire who imprisoned in it because of his disobedience?

وذَاقَ طَعْمَ عَذابِها بِمَعْصِيَتِهِ وَحُبِسَ بَينَ أطْباقِها بِجُرمِهِ وجَريرَتِهِ

(Wa dhaqa t’ama ‘adhabiha bim’asi-yatik wa hobisa bayna atbaqiha bijormihi wa jariratih,)

And he had tasted it’s torment because of his in subordination? And blockaded in it’s levels for his sin and crime?

وَهُوَ يَضِجُّ إلَيكَ ضَجيجَ مُؤمِّلٍ لِرَحْمَتِكَ

(Wahwa yadijjo ilayka dajija mo’ammilin lirahmatika,)

While he laments before You with the hopeful crier for Your Mercy?

ويُنادِيكَ بِلِسانِ أهْلِ تَوحِيدِكَ وَيَتَوَسَّلُ إلَيْكَ بِرُبُوبِيَّكَ

(Wa yonadika bilisani ‘ahli tawhidika wa yatawassal ilayka birobobiyatik,)

Calling upon You with your monotheist’s tongue? And entreating You by Your Lordship?

يا مَولاي فَكَيفَ يَبْقى في العَذابِ وَهُوَ يَرْجُو ما سَلَفَ مِنْ حِلْمِكَ (ورَأْفَتِكَ وَرَحْمَتِكَ)

(Ya mawla fakayfa yabqa fil ‘adhbi wahwa yarjo ma salafa min hilmika “wa r’afatika wa rahmatik,”)

O my Lord! How can he remain in torment , while he has hoped for which is antacid of Your Clemency, Compassion and Mercy?

أمْ كَيفَ تُؤْلِمُهُ النّارُ وَهُوَ يَأمَلُ فَظْلَكَ وَرَحْمَتَكَ

(Am kayfa t’olimohon naro wahwa y’amalo fadlaka wa rahmatak,)

Or how can the Fire cause him pain, while one hope for Your favor?

أمْ كَيفَ يُحْرِقُهُ لَهيبُها وأنْتَ تَسْمَعُ صَوْتَهُ وتَرى مَكانَهُ

(Am kayfa yohriqoho lahiboha wa anta tasma’ sawtah watara makanah,)

Or how can it’s flames burn him while You hear his voice and see his place?

أمْ كَيفَ يَشْتَمِلُ عَليهِ زَفيرُها وأنْتَ تَعْلَمُ ضَعْفَهُ

(Am kayfa yashtamilo ‘alayhi zafiroha wa anta t’alamo d’afah,)

Or how can it’s flame encompass him while You know his weakness?

أمْ كَيفَ يَتَقَلْقَلُ بَينَ أطْباقِها وأنْتَ تَعْلَمُ صِدْقَهُ

(Am kayfa yataqalqalo bayna atbaqiha wa anta t’alamo sidaqah,)

Or how can he be convulsed among its layers while You know his true heartedness?

أمْ كَيفَ تَزْجَرُهُ زَبانِيَتُها وهُوَ يُناديكَ يا رَبَّه

(Am kayfa tazjoroho zabani-yatoha wahwa yonadika ya rabbah,)

Or how can its keepers reproach him while he calls out to You, “O Lord!”

أمْ كَيفَ يَرْجُوا فَضْلَكَ في عِتْقِهِ مِنْها فَتَتْرُكَهُ فيها

(Am kayfa yarjo fadlaka fi itqihi minha fatatrokaho fiha,)

Or how can he has hope for Your (grace in releasing him) from it [then you leave him in it]?

هَيْهاتَ ما ذلِكَ الظُّنُ بِكَ ولا المَعْروفُ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ

(Hayhat, ma dhalikal danno bika, walal m’aroufo min fadlik,)

How far from You! That isn’t the expected from You, nor the well-known of Your Bounty;

ولا مَشْبِهٌ لِما عامَلْتَ بِهِ المُوَحِّدينَ مِنْ بِرِّكَ وإحْسانِكَ

(Wala moshbiho lima ‘amalta bihil mowahhidina min birrika wa’ihsanik,)

And Nor is similer to what you deal withe the monotheists by your charity and philanthropy.

فبِاليَقينِ أقْطَعُ لَوْلا ما حَكَمْتَ بِهِ مِن تَعْذيبِ جاحِدِيكَ

(Fabil-yaqini ‘aqta’o lawla ma hakamta bihi min t’adhibi jahidik,)

So I declare by certainty that had You not ordained chastisement for Your deniers;

وَقَضَيْتَ بِهِ مِنْ إخْلادِ مُعانِديكَ لَجَعَلْتَ النّارَ كُلَّها بَرْداً وَسَلاماً وَما كَانَ لأحَدٍ فِيها مَقَرَّاً وَلا مُقاماً

(Wa qadayta bih min ‘ikhladi mo’anidika laja’altal nara kollaha bardan wa salaman, wama kana li’ahadin fiha maqarran wala moqama,)

And Had You not decreed Your inflexable people to remain in Hell; You would have made the Fire, in all its entirety, cool and safe; and there would never have been a position or place for anyone in it.

لكِنَّكَ تَقَدَّسَتْ أسْماؤُكَ أقْسَمْتَ أنْ تَمْلأها مِنَ الكافِرينَ

(Lakinnaka taqaddasa asma’oka aqsamta an tamla’aha minal kafirin,)

But Your Names be Sanctified! You have sworn to fill it with the atheists;

مِنَ الجِنَّةِ والنّاسِ أجْمَعينَ وأنْ تُخَلِّدَ فيها المُعانِدِينَ

(Minal jinnat wan nasi ajma’in wa an tokhallida fihal mo’anidin,)

From jinn and mankind together; and to place the inflexible people in it forever.

وأنْتَ جَلَّ ثَناؤُكَ قُلْتَ مَبْتَدِءاً وتَطَوَّلْتَ بالإنْعامِ مُتَكَرِّماً

(Wa anta jalla thana’oka qolta mobtadi’an watatawlta bilin’am motakarrima,)

And You! Your Eulogy be Exalted’ had said originally, out of Your Grace, Beneficence and Generosity,

أفَمَنْ كَانَ مُؤْمِناً كَمَنْ كَانَ فاسِقاً لا يَسْتَوونَ

(Afaman kana m’ominan kaman kan fasiqan la yastawon,)

“What? Is one who has been a believer like one who has been ungodly? They are not alike.”

إلهي وَسَيِّدي فَأسْألُكَ بالقُدْرَةِ الَّتي قَدَّرْتَها

(Ilahi wa sayydi fa as’aloka bilqodratil lati qaddarataha,)

My Allah and my Master! I ask You by the power which You have determined,

وبالقَضِيَّةِ الَّتي حَتَمْتَها وَحَكَمْتَها وَغَلَبْتَ مَنْ عَلَيهِ أجْرَيْتَها

(Wa bilqadiyatil lat hatamtaha wa hakamtaha wa ghalabta man alayhi ajraytaha,)

And by the decree which You have imposed and prescribed, and through which You have subdued those toward whom You have imposed,

أنْ تَهَبَ لي في هذِهِ الليلة وفي هذه السّاعَةِ كُلَّ جُرْمٍ أجْرَمْتُهُ

(An tahiba li fi hadhihil layla fi hadhihi sa’a kolla jormi ajramtoh,)

That You forgive me in this night, and at this hour, every crime that I have done,

وكُلَّ ذَنْبٍ أذْنَبْتُهُ وَكُلَّ قَبِيحٍ أسْرَرتُهُ وَكُلَّ جَهْلٍ عَمِلْتُهُ كَتَمْتُهُ أو أعْلَنْتُهُ أخْفَيْتُهُ أو أظْهَرتُهُ

(Wa kolla dhanbin adhnabtoho wa kolla qabihin asrartoho wa kolla jahlin amiltoho katamtoho aw ‘a’lantoh akhfaytoho aw adhhartoh,)

And every sin that I have committed, every abomination that I have concealed, every foolish thing that I have enacted; whether I have hidden it or declared it; whether I have concealed it or disclosed it;

وَكُلَّ سَيِّئَةٍ أمَرتَ بإثْباتِها الكِرامَ الكاتِبينَ الّذينَ وَكَّلْتَهُم بِحِفظِ ما يَكُونُ مِنّي

(Wa kolla sayyi’atin amarta bi ithbatihal kiramal katibin alladhina wakkaltahom bihifdi ma yakouno minni,)

And every fault which You have directed the Noble Writers to record; those whom You have appointed to watch every action of mine;

وَجَعَلْتَهُمْ شُهُوداً عَلَيَّ مَعَ جَوارِحي وَكُنْتَ أنْتَ الرَّقيبَ مِنْ وَرائِهِمْ والشّاهِدَ لِما خَفِيَ عَنْهُم وَبِرَحْمَتِكَ أخْفَيتَهُ وبِفَضْلِكَ سَتَرتَهُ

(Wa ja’altahom shohoudan ‘alayya ma’a jawrihi wa konta antar raqiba ‘alayya min wara’ihim wa sahida lima khafiya anhom wa birahmatika akhfaytaho wa bifadlika satartah,)

And whom You have made, along with my limbs, witnesses against me; and You are Yourself was the Watcher over me following them, and the Witness of what is hidden of them, but through Your Mercy You have concealed it and through Your Bounty You have veiled it.

وأنْ تُوَفِّرَ حَظِّي مِنْ كُلِّ خَيرٍ تُنْزِلُهُ أو إحْسانٍ تُفَضِّلُهُ

(Wa an towaffira haddi min kolli khayri tonziloh aw ihsanin tofaddiloh,)

And I ask You to bestow upon me an abundant share of all goodness You send down; or favor You prefer;

أو بِرٍ تَنْشُرُهُ أو رِزْقٍ تَبْسُطُهُ أو ذَنْبٍ تَغْفِرُهُ أو خَطأٍ تَسْتُرُهُ

(Aw birrin tanshoroh aw rizqin tabsotoho aw dhanbin taghfiroho aw khata’in tastoroh,)

Or benefits You spread out; or provisions You extend; or sins You forgive; or error You screen.

يا رَبِّ يا رَبِّ يا رَبِّ يا إلهي وسَيِّدي ومَوْلايَ

(Ya rabb’ ya rabbi ya rabbi, ya ilahi wa sayydi wa mawlay,)

O’ my Lord! My Lord! My Lord! O my Allah! My Master! My Protector!

ومَالِكَ رِقِّي يا مَنْ بِيَدِهِ ناصِيَتي

(Wa malika riqqi ya man bi-yadihi nasi-yati,)

And my bondage owner! O he who has my destiny!

يا عَليماً بِضُرِّي ومَسْكَنَتي يا خَبيراً بِفَقْري وَفاقَتي

(Ya ‘aliman bidorri wa maskanati ya khabiran bifaqri wa faqati,)

O He Who knows my affliction and my wretchedness! O, He Who is my deprivation and indigence aware!

يا رَبِّ يا رَبِّ يا رَبِّ أسألُكَ بِحَقِّكَ وقُدْسِكَ وأعْظَمِ صِفاتِكَ وأسْمائِكَ

(Ya rabbi ya rabbi ya rab as’aloka bihaqqika wa qodsika wa ‘a’dami sifatika wa asma’ik,)

O’ my Lord! My Lord! My Lord! I beseech You by Your Truth, Your Holiness and the greatest of Your Attributes and Titles;

أنْ تَجْعَلَ أوْقاتِي في اللَّيلِ والنَّهارِ بِذِكْرِكَ مَعْمُورَةً وبِخِدْمَتِكَ مَوصُولَةً

(An taj’ala awqati fil-layli wa nahari bidhikrika ma’mourah wa bikhidmatika mawsoulah,)

To make my periods of time night and the day filled by Your Remembrance and to Your serices persistent;

وأعْمالِي عِنْدَكَ مَقْبُولَةً حَتّى تَكُونَ أعْمالِي وَأوْرادِي كُلُّها وِرْداً واحِداً

(Wa a’mali ‘indaka maqboulah hatta takouna a’mal wa awradi kolloha wirdan wahida,)

And my actions are acceptable to You, so that they and my offerings may all be a single litany;

وَحالِي في خِدْمَتِكَ سَرْمَدا

(Wa hali fi khidmatika sarmada,)

And may occupation with Your service everlasting.

يا سَيِّدي يا مَنْ عَلَيهِ مُعَوَّلي يا مَنْ شَكَوْتُ إليهِ أحْوالي

(Ya sayyidi ya man ‘alayhi mo’awwali ya man ilayhi shakawto ahwali,)

O my Master! O, whom upon him is my dependence! O, He to Whom I protest to him about my situations;

يا رَبِّ يا رَبِّ يا رَبِّ قَوِّ على خِدْمَتِكَ جَوارِحي

(Ya rabbi ya rabbi ya rab; qawwi ‘ala khidmatika jawarihi,)

O’ my Lord! My Lord! My Lord! Strengthen my limbs for Your service.

واشْدُدْ على العَزيمَةِ جَوانِحِي

(Wa shdod ‘ala ‘azimati jawanihi,)

And fortify my bosom by determination;

وَهَبْ لِيَ الجِدَّ في خَشْيَتِكَ وَالدَّوامَ في الإتِّصالِ بِخِدْمَتِكَ

(Wahab li-yal jidda fi khash-yatika wad-dawama fil ittisal bikhidmatik,)

And bestow me solemnity in my fear of You, and continuity in my being united to Your service;

حَتَّى أسْرَحَ إلَيكَ في مَيادينِ السَّابِقينَ

(Hatta asraha ilayka fi mayadinis sabiqin,)

So that I may move easily towards You in the battle fields of the victors;

وَأُسْرِعَ إلَيكَ في المُبادِرينَ وأشْتاقَ إلى قُرْبِكَ في المُشْتاقِينَ

(Wa ‘osri’a ilayka fil mobadirina wa ashtaqa ila qorbika fil moshtaqin,)

And hurry to You among the under takers and I desire to your proximity through the yearning;

وأدْنُوَ مِنْكَ دُنُوَّ المُخْلِصينَ وَأخافَكَ مَخافَةَ المُوقِنِينَ وأجْتَمِعَ في جَوارِكَ مَعَ المُؤْمِنينَ

(Wa adnowa minka donowwa mokhlisin wa akhafaka makhafatal mouqinin, wa ajtami’a fi jiwarika ma’al m’ominin,)

And approach to You as the faithful’s approach; and fear You with the believer’s fear; an united with the faithfuls in Your closness.

اللَّهُمَّ وَمَنْ أرادَني بِسُوءٍ فأرِدْهُ وَمَنْ كادَنِي فَكِدْهُ

(Allahomma wa man aradani bisou-in fa aridhho, wa man kadani fakid ho,)

O Allah! Whoever desires me with the evil; desire him with it! And whoever deceives me; deceive him!

واجْعَلْني مِنْ أحْسَنِ عَبِيدِكَ نَصيباً عِنْدَكَ وأقْرَبِهِمْ مَنْزِلَةً مِنكَ وأخَصِّهِمْ زُلْفَةً لَدَيكَ

(Waj’alni min ahsani ‘abidika nasiban ‘indaka wa aqrabihim manzilatan minka, wa akhassihim zolfatan ladayk,)

And make me one of the best luck of Your servants at You; and the closest position of them to You; and the most special rank of them to You;

فإنَّهُ لا يُنالُ ذلِكَ إلاّ بِفَضلِكَ

(Fa innaho la yonalo dhalika illa bifadlik,)

For that cannot be attained except by Your Bounty.

وَجُدْ لِي بِجُودِكَ واعْطِف عَلَيَّ بِمَجْدِكَ واحْفَظني بِرَحْمَتِكَ

(Wajud li bijoudika, wa i’tif alayya bimajdika, wahfadni birahmatik,)

Grant me generously through Your Magnificence; and become passionate up on me; and protect me with Your Mercy!

واجْعَلْ لِسانِي بِذِكْرِكَ لَهِجاً وَقَلْبي بِحُبِّكَ مُتَيَّماً

(Waj-al lisani bidhikrika lahija, waqalbi bihubbika motayyama,)

And make my tongue mention continually with your Remembrance and my heart enthralled with Your love.

وَمُنَّ عَلَيَّ بِحُسْنِ إجابَتِكَ وأقِلْنِي عَثْرَتي واغْفِرْ لِي زَلَّتي

(Wa monna alayya bihosni ijabatika wa aqilni athrati waghfir li zallati,)

And be bestow up on me by answering me favorably, and nullify my transgressions and forgive my lapses.

فإنَّكَ قَضَيْتَ على عِبادِكَ بِعِبادَتِكَ وأمَرْتَهُمْ بِدُعائِكَ وَضَمِنْتَ لَهُمُ الإجابَةَ

(Fa-innaka qadayta ‘ala ‘ibadika bi-’ibadatika wa amartahom bidu’ai’ka, wa daminta lahomol ijabah,)

For surely, You have ordained Your worship for Your bondsmen; and ordered them to supplicate to You; and assured them of Your answer.

فَإلَيْكَ يا رَبِّ نَصَبْتُ وَجْهِي وَإلَيْكَ يا رَبِّ مَدَدْتُ يَدِي

(Fa-ilayka ya rabbi nasabto wajhi wa-ilayka ya rabbi madadto yadi,)

So towards You, my Lord, I have turned my face; and towards You, my Lord; I have stretched my hand out.

فَبِعِزَّتِكَ اسْتَجِبْ لي دُعائِي وبَلِّغْني مُناي

(Fabi-izzatika astajib li du’a’i wa ballighni munay,)

So by Your Might, respond to my supplication, and let me attain my wishes.

ولا تَقْطَعْ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ رَجائِي واكْفِنِي شَرَّ الجِنِّ والإنْسِ مِنْ أعْدائِي

(Wala taqta’ min fadlika raja’i wakfini sharral jinni wal insi min a’da’i,)

And by Your Bounty do not frustrate my hope; and protect me from the evil of my enemies of the jinn and mankind!

يا سَريعَ الرِّضا إغْفِر لِمَنْ لا يَمْلِكُ إلاّ الدُّعاءَ فَإنَّكَ فَعَّالٌ لِمَا تَشاءُ

(Ya sari’ar rida ighfir liman la yamliko illa du’a fa-innaka fa’allon lima tasha,)

O He! Whose pleasure is quickly achieved! Forgive one who has nothing but invocation, for You do what You will.

يا مَنْ اسْمُهُ دَوَاءٌ وَذِكْرُهُ شِفاءٌ وطاعَتُهُ غِنَىً

(Ya man ismoho dawa’ wa dhikruho shifa’ wa ta’atoho ghinan,)

O He! Whose Name is a Cure; and Whose Remembrance is a recuperation; and Whose Obedience is a wealth!

ارْحَمْ مَنْ رَأسُ مَالِهِ الرَّجاءُ وَسِلاحُهُ البُكاءُ

(Irham man ra’so malihir raja’ wa silahohol boka’,)

Have mercy on one whose capital is only the hope, and whose instrument is the weeping.

يا سابِغَ النِّعَمِ يا دافِعَ النِّقَمِ يا نُورَ المُستَوحِشِينَ في الظُّلَمِ

(Ya sabighan ni’am ya dafi’an niqam ya noura mustawhishina fi dolam,)

O the blessings plentiful! O the adversities repellenter O the horrifieds light in the dimpnesses!

يا عَالِماً لا يُعَلَّمْ صَلِّ على مُحَمَّدٍ وآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وافْعَلْ بِي ما أنْتَ أهْلُهُ

(Ya aliman la yo-’allamo salli ala Muhammadin wa’ala Muhammad waf’al bi ma anta ahloh,)

O Knower Who was never taught! Bless Muhammad and his descendants; and do with me what is worthy of You!

وَصَلَّى اللَّهُ على رَسُولِهِ والأئِمَّةِ المَيَامِينَ مِنْ آلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ تَسْليماً كَثيراً

(Wa sallal-laho ala rasoulihi wal a’immatil mayamina min alihi wasallam tasliman kathira.)

And God blessing up on his Messenger and the Holy Imams of his descendants and give them abundant peace!
