allahumma in-ni as-aluka bi-rah-matikal-lati wasi`at kul-la shay
O Allah, I ask You by Your mercy, which embraces all things;
وَبِقُوَّتِكَ الَّتِي قَهَرْتَ بِهَا كُلَّ شَيٍْء
wa bi-qu-watikal-lati qahar-ta biha kul-la shay
And by Your strength, through which You dominatest all things,
وَخَضَعَ لَهَا كُلُّ شَيٍْء

And toward which all things are humble
وَذَلَّ لَهَا كُلُّ شَيٍْء

And before which all things are lowly;
وَبِجَبرُوتِكَ الَّتِي غَلَبْتَ بِهَا كُلَّ شَيٍْء
wa bi-jabarutikal-lati ghalab-ta biha kul-la shay

by Your force, which towers over all things;

wa bi-as-ma-ikal-lati malat ar-kana kul-li shay

allahumma-igh-fir liya kul-la dham-bin adhnabtuhu wa kul-la khati-atin akh-tatuha
O Allah, forgive me every sin I have committed and every mistake I have made!
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَتَقَرَّبُ إِلَيْكَ بِذِكْرِكَ
allahumma inni ataqarrabu ilayka bi-dhik-rik
O Allah, verily I seek nearness to You through remembrance of You,
وَأَسْتَشْفِعُ بِكَ إِلَي نَفْسِكَ
wa as-tash-fiu' bika ila naf-sik
And I seek intercession from You with Yourself,
وَأَسْألُكَ بِجُودِكَ أَن تُدْنِيَنِي مِن قُرْبِكَ
wa as-aluka bi-judika an tud-ni-yani min qur-bik
And I ask You through Your munificence to bring me near to Your proximity,
وَأَن تُوزِعَنِي شُكْرَكَ
wa an tuzi`ani shuk-rak
And to provide me with gratitude toward You
وَأَن تُلْهِمَنِي ذِكْرَكَ
wa an tul-himani dhik-rak
And to inspire me with Your remembrance.
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْألُكَ سُؤَالَ خَاضِعٍ مُّتَذَلِّلٍ خَاشِعٍ أَن تُسَامِحَنِي وَتَرْحَمَنِي
allahumma in-ni as-luka suala khadii'm-mutadhal-lilin kha-shii'n an tusamihani wa tar-hamani
O Allah, verily I ask You with the asking of a submissive, abased and lowly man to show me forbearance, to have mercy on me

wa taj-`alani bi-qasamika radiyan qani`n wa fi jamii'l-ah-wali mutawadi`aa
And to make me satisfied and content with Your appointment and [make me] humble in every state.

allahumma wa as-aluka suala manish-tad-dat faqatuh
O Allah, I ask You the question of one whose indigence is extreme,
وَأَنزَلَ بِكَ عِنْدَ الشَّدَائِدِ حَاجَتَهُ
wa anzala bika i'ndash-shada-idi hajatahu
And who has stated to You in difficulties his need
وَعَظُمَ فِيمَا عِنْدَكَ رَغْبَتُهُ
wa `azuma fima i'ndaka ragh-batuhu
And whose desire for what is with You has become great.
اللَّهُمَّ عَظُمَ سُلْطَانُكَ وَعَلاَ مَكَانُكَ
allahumma `azuma sul-tanuka wa `ala makanuk
O Allah, Your force is tremendous, Your place is lofty,
وَخَفِي مَكْرُكَ وَظَهَرَ أَمْرُكَ
wa khafiya mak-ruka wazahara am-ruk
And Your plan is hidden, Your command is manifest,
وَغَلَبَ قَهْرُكَ وَجَرَتْ قُدْرَتُكَ
wa ghalaba qah-ruka wa jarat qud-ratuk
And Your domination is overwhelming, Your power is unhindered
وَلا يُمْكِنُ الْفِرَارُ مِنْ حُكُومَتِكَ
wa-la yum-kinul-firaru min huku-matik
And escape from Your governance is impossible.
اللَّهُمَّ لا أَجِدُ لِذُنُوبِي غَافِراً
allahumma la ajidu lidhunubi ghafira
O Allah, I find no forgiver of my sins,
وَّلا لِقَبَائِحِي سَاتِراً
wa-la liqaba-ihi satira
Nor concealer of my ugly acts
وَّلا لِشَيٍْء مِّنْ عَمَلِي الْقَبِيحِ بِالْحَسَنِ مُبَدِّلاً غَيْرَكَ
wa-la lishayim-min `amali-yal-qabihi bil-hasani mubad-dilan ghayrak
Nor transformer of any of my ugly acts into good acts but You
لا إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنتَ
la ilaha il-la anta
There is no god but You!
سُبْحَانَكَ وَبِحَمْدِكَ
sub-hanaka wa biham-dika
Glory be to You, and Thine is the praise!
ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِي
zalam-tu naf-si
I have wronged myself,
وَتَجَرَّأْتُ بِجَهْلِي
wa tajar-ratu bijah-li
And I have been audacious in my ignorance
وَسَكَنتُ إِلَي قَدِيمِ ذِكْرِكَ لِي وَمَنِّكَ عَلَيَّ
wa sakan-tu ila qadimi dhik-rika li wa man-nika `alay
And I have depended upon Your ancient remembrance of me and Your favour toward me.
اللَّهُمَّ مَوْلايَ
allahumma maw-lay
O Allah! O my Protector!
كَم مِّن قَبِيحٍ سَتَرْتَهُ
kam-min qabihin satar-tah
How many ugly things You hast concealed!
وَكَم مِّن فَاِدحٍ مِّنَ البَلاءِ أَقَلْتَهُ
wa kam-min fadihim-minal-bala-i aqal-tah
How many burdensome tribulations You hast abolished!
وَكَم مِّنْ عِثَارٍ وَّقَيْتَهُ
wa kam-min i'thariw-waqaytah
And how many stumbles You hast prevented!
وَكَم مِّن مَّكْرُوهٍ دَفَعْتَهُ
wa kam-mim-mak-ruhin dafa`tah
And how many ordeals You hast repelled!
وَكَم مِّن ثَنَاٍء جَمِيلٍ لَّسْتُ أَهْلاً لَّهُ نَشَرْتَهُ
wa kam-min thana-in jamilil-las-tu ah-lal-lahu nashar-tah
And how much beautiful praise, for which I was unworthy, You hast spread abroad!
اللَّهُمَّ عَظُمَ بَلائِي
allahumma `azuma balai
O Allah, my tribulation is tremendous,
وَأَفْرَطَ بِي سُوءُ حَاِلي
wa af-rata bi suo-u hali
And my bad state is excessive,
وَقَصُرَتْ بِي أَعْمَاِلي
wa qasurat bi a`mali
And my acts are inadequate,
وَقَعَدَتْ بِي أَغْلاَلِي
wa qa`adat bi agh-la-li
And my fetters have tied me down,
وَحَبَسَنِي عَن نَّفْعِي بُعْدُ آمَاِلي
wa habasani `an-naf-e'e bu`a-du a-ma-li
And my far-fetched hopes have held me back from my gain
وَخَدَعَتْنِي الدُّنْيَا بِغُرُورِهَا وَنَفْسِي بِجِنَايَتِهَا وَمِطَاِلي
wa khada`at-nid-dunya bi-ghururi-ha wa naf-si bi-jinayatiha wa mita-li
And this world with its delusions, my own soul with its offences and my delay have deceived me.
يَا سَيِّدِي فَأَسْألُكَ بِعِزَّتِكَ أَن لا يَحْجُبَ عَنْكَ دُعَائِي سُوءُ عَمَلِي وَفِعَاِلي
ya say-yidi fa-as-aluka bi-i'z-zatika an la yah-juba `an-ka du`aa-i suo-u `amali wa fi`ali
O my Master! So I ask You by Your might not to let my evil works and acts veil my supplication from You,
وَلا تَفْضَحَنِي بِخَفِيِّ مَا اطَّلَعْتَ عَلَيْهِ مِنْ سِرِّي
wa-la taf-dah-ni bi-khafi-yi mat-tala`ta `ailayhi min sir-ri
And not to disgrace me through the hidden things You knowest of my secrets
وَلا تُعَاجِلْنِي بِالْعُقُوبَةِ عَلَى مَا عَمِلْتُهُ فِي خَلَوَاتِي
wa-la tu`ajil-ni bil-u'qubati `ala ma `amil-tuhu fi khalawati
And not to hasten me to punishment for what I have done in private:
مِنْ سُوءِ فِعْلِي وَإِسَاءَتِي،
min suo-i fi`a-li wa isa-ati
My evil acts in secrecy and my misdeeds
وَدَوَامِ تَفْرِيطِي وَجَهَالَتِي
wa dawami taf-riti wa jahalati
And my continuous negligence and my ignorance
وَكَثْرَةِ شَهَوَاتِي وَغَفْلَتِي
wa kath-rati sha-hawati wa ghaf-lati
And my manifold passions and my forgetfulness.
وَكُنِ اللَّهُمَّ بِعِزَّتِكَ لِي فِي كُلِّ الأَحْوَاِل رَؤُوفاً
wa kunil-lahumma bi-i'z-zatika li fi kul-lil-ah-wali ra’ufa
And by Your might, O Allah, be kind to me in all states
وَّعَلَيَّ فِي جَمِيعِ الأُمُورِ عَطُوفاً
wa `alay-ya fi jamii'l-umuri `atufa
And be gracious to me in all affairs!
إِلَهِي وَرَبِّي مَن لِّي غَيْرُكَ أَسْألُهُ كَشْفَ ضُرِّي وَالْنَّظَرَ فِي أَمْرِي!
ilahi wa rab-bi mal-li ghayruka as-aluhu kash-fa dur-ri wan-nazara fi am-ri!
My God and my Lord! Have I any but You from whom to ask removal of my affliction and regard for my affairs!
إِلَهِي وَمَوْلاي أَجْرَيْتَ عَلَيَّ حُكْماً اتَّبَعْتُ فِيهِ هَوَى نَفْسِي،
ilahi wa maw-laya aj-rayta `alay-ya huk-mant-taba`tu fihi hawa naf-si
My God and my Protector! You put into effect through me a decree in which I followed the caprice of my own soul
وَلَمْ أَحْتَرِسْ فِيهِ مِن تَزْيينِ عَدُوِّي،
wa lam ah-taris fihi min tazyini `adu-wi
And [I] did not remain wary of adorning my enemy.
فَغَرَّنِي بِمَا أَهْوَى وَأَسْعَدَهُ عَلَى ذَلِكَ القَضَاءُ
fa-ghar-rani bi-ma ah-wa wa as-`adahu `ala dha-likal-qada
So he deluded me through my soul's caprice and therein destiny favoured him
فَتَجَاوَزْتُ بِمَا جَرَى عَلَيَّ مِنْ ذَلِكَ بَعْضَ حُدُودِكَ
fa-taja-waztu bi-ma jara `alay-ya min dha-lika ba`da hududik
So, in what was put into effect through me in that situation, I transgressed some of Your statutes
وَخَالَفْتُ بَعْضَ أَوَامِرِكَ
wa khalaf-tu ba`da awamirik
And disobeyed some of Your commands.
فَلَكَ الْحُجَّةُ عَلَيَّ فِي جَمِيعِ ذَلِكَ
falakal-huj-jatu `alay-ya fi jamii' dhalik
So Thine is the argument against me in all of that
وَلا حُجَّةَ لِي فِيمَا جَرَي عَلَيَّ فِيهِ قَضَاؤُكَ،
wa-la huj-jata li fima jara `alay-ya fihi qadauka
I have no argument in what Your destiny put into effect through me therein
وَأَلْزَمَنِي حُكْمُكَ وَبَلاؤُكَ
wa alzamani huk-muka wa balauk
nor in what Your decree and Your tribulation imposed upon me.
وَقَدْ أَتَيْتُكَ يَا إِلَهِي بَعْدَ تَقْصِيرِي وَإِسْرَافِي عَلَى نَفْسِي
wa qad ataytuka ya ilahi ba`da taq-siri wa is-rafi `ala naf-si
Now I have come to You, My God, after my shortcoming and my immoderation toward myself,
مُعْتَذِراً نَّادِماً،
mu`a-tadhiran-nadiman
Proffering my excuse, regretful,
مُّنْكَسِراً مُّسْتَقِيلاً
mun-kasiram-mus-taqilama
Broken, apologizing,
مُّسْتَغْفِراً مُّنِيباً،
mus-tagh-firam-muniban
Asking forgiveness, repenting,
مُّقِرّاً مُّذْعِناً مُّعْتَرِفاً
muqir-ram-mudhi'nam-mu`a-tarifa
Acknowledging, submissive, confessing.
لا أَجِدُ مَفَرّاً مِّمَّا كَانَ مِنِّي
la ajidu mafar-ram-mim-ma kana min-ni
I find no place to flee from what occurred through me,
وَلا مَفْزَعاً أَتَوَجَّهُ إِلَيْهِ في أَمْرِي
wa-la mafza'an atawaj-jahu ilayhi fi am-ri
Nor any place of escape to which I may turn in my affairs,
غَيْرَ قَبُولِكَ عُذْرِي، وَإِدخَاِلكَ إِيَاي فِي سَعَةٍ مِّن رَّحْمَتِكَ
ghayra qabulika u'dhri wa id-khalika i-yaya fi sa'tim-mir-rah-matik
Other than Your acceptance of my excuse and Your entering me into the compass of Your mercy.
اللَّهُمَّ فَاقْبَل عُذْرِي
allahumma faq-bal u'dhri
O Allah, so accept my excuse,
وَارْحَمْ شِدَّةَ ضُرِّي
war-ham shid-data duri
Have mercy upon the severity of my affliction
وَفُكَّنِي مِن شَدِّ وَثَاقِي
wa fuk-kani min shad-di wathaqi
And release me from the tightness of my fetters,
يَا رَبِّ ارْحَمْ ضَعْفَ بَدَنِي وَرِقَّةَ جِلْدِي وَدِقَّةَ عَظْمِي
ya rab-bir-ham da`fa badani wa riq-qata jil-di wa diq-qata `azmi
My Lord, have mercy upon the weakness of my body, the thinness of my skin and the frailty of my bones.
يَا مَنْ بَدَأَ خَلْقِي وَذِكْرِي وَتَرْبِيَتِي وَبِرِّي وَتَغْذِيَتِي
ya mam bada khal-qi wa dhik-ri wa tar-bi-yati wa biri wa tagh-dhi-yati
O You who gave rise to my creation, to the remembrance of me, to the nurture of me, to goodness toward me and to nourishment on me,
هَبْنِي لابْتِدَاءِ كَرَمِكَ وَسَاِلفِ بِرِّكَ بِي
hab-ni lb-tida-i karamika wa salifi bir-rika bi
Bestow upon me for the sake of Your having given rise [to me] with generosity and Your previous goodness to me!
يَا إِلَهِي وَسَيِّدِي وَرَبِّي
ya ilahi wa say-yidi wa rab-bi
O Allah, my Master and my Lord!
أَتُرَاكَ مُعَذِّبِي بِنَارِكَ بَعْدَ تَوْحِيدِكَ
aturaka mu`adh-dhibi binarika ba`da taw-hidik
Canst You see Yourself tormenting me with Your fire after I have professed Your Unity
وَبَعْدَ مَا انْطَوَى عَلَيْهِ قَلْبِي مِن مَّعْرِفَتِكَ
wa ba`da man-tawa `ailayhi qal-bi mim-ma`rifatik
And after the knowledge of You my heart has embraced,
وَلَهِجَ بِهِ لِسَانِي مِنْ ذِكْرِكَ
wa lahija bihi lisani min dhik-rik
And the remembrance of You my tongue has constantly mentioned
وَاعْتَقَدَهُ ضَمِيرِي مِنْ حُبِّكَ
wa a`taqadahu zamiri min hub-bik
And the love of You to which my mind has clung,
وَبَعْدَ صِدْقِ اعْتِرَافِي وَدُعَائِي خَاضِعاً لِّرُبُوبِيَّتِكَ
wa ba`da sid-qi-`a-tirafi wa du`aa-i khadi`aal-li-rububi-yatika
And after the sincerity of my confession and my supplication, humble before Your lordship?
هَيْهَاتَ أَنتَ أَكْرَمُ مِنْ أَن تُضَيِّعَ مَن رَّبَّيْتَهُ
hayhata anta ak-ramu min an tuday-yi`a mar-rab-baytah
Far be it from You! You art more generous than that You shouldst squander him whom You hast nurtured,
أَوْ تُبْعِدَ مَنْ أَدْنَيْتَهُ
aw tub-i'da man ad-naytah
Or banish him whom You hast brought nigh,
أَوْ تُشَرِّدَ مَنْ آوَيْتَهُ
aw tushar-rida man a-aytah
Or drive away him whom You hast given an abode
أَوْ تُسْلِّمَ إِلىَ الْبلاءِ مَن كَفَيْتَهُ وَرَحِمْتَهُ
aw tus-s-lima ilal-bala-i man kafay-tahu wa rahim-tah
Or submit to tribulation him whom You hast spared and shown mercy.
وَلَيْتَ شِعْرِي يَا سَيِّدِي وَإِلَهِي وَمَوْلاي
wa layta shi`a-ri yay say-yidi wa ilahi wa maw-lay
Would that I knew, my Master, My God and my Protector,
أَتُسَلِّطُ النَّارَ عَلَى وُجُوهٍ خَرَّتْ لِعَظَمَتِكَ سَاجِدَةً
atusal-litun-nara `ala wujuhin khar-rat li-`azamatika sajidah
Whether You wilt give the Fire dominion over faces fallen down prostrate before Your Tremendousness,
وَّعَلَى أَلْسُنٍ نَّطَقَتْ بِتَوْحِيدِكَ صَادِقَةً وَّبِشُكْرِكَ مَادِحَةً
wa `ala al-sunin-nataqat bi-taw-hidika sadiqataw-wa bishuk-rika madihah
And over tongues voicing sincerely the profession of Your Unity and giving thanks to You in praise,
وَّعَلَى قُلُوبٍ اعْتَرَفَتْ بِإِلَهِيَّتِكَ مُحَقِّقَةً
wa `ala qulubin-`a-tarafat bi-ilhi-yatika muhaq-qiqah
And over hearts acknowledging Your Divinity through verification,
وَّعَلَى ضَمَائِرَ حَوَتْ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ بِكَ حَتَّى صَارَتْ خَاشِعَةً
wa `ala dama-ira hawat minal-i'l-mi bika hat-ta sarat khashi`ah
And over minds encompassing knowledge of You until they have become humble
وَّعَلَى جَواِرحَ سَعَتْ إِلَى أَوْطَانِ تَعَبُّدِكَ طَائِعَةً وَّأَشَارَتْ بِاسْتِغْفَارِكَ مُذْعِنَةً
wa `ala jawariha sa't ila aw-tani ta'b-budika ta-i`ataw-wa asharat bis-tigh-farika mudhi'nah
And over bodily members speeding to the places of Your worship in obedience and beckoning for Your forgiveness in submission.
مَّا هَكَذَا الظَّنُّ بِكَ وَلا أُخْبِرْنَا بِفَضْلِكَ عَنكَ
ma hkadhaz-zan-nu bika wa-la ukh-bir-na bi-fadlika `anka
No such opinion is held of You! Nor has such been reported - thanks to Your bounty — concerning You,
يَا كَرِيمُ، يَا رَبِّ
ya karimu ya rab
O All-generous! My Lord,
وَأَنتَ تَعْلَمُ ضَعْفِي عَن قَلِيلٍ مِّن بَلاءِ الدُّنْيَا وَعُقُوبَاتِهَا،
wa anta ta`lamu da`fi `an qalilim-min bala-id-dun-ya wa u'qubatiha
And You knowest my weakness before a little of this world's tribulations and punishments,
وَمَا يَجْرِي فِيهَا مِنَ الْمَكَارِهِ عَلَى أَهْلِهَا
wa ma yaj-ri fiha minal-makarihi `ala ah-liha
And before those ordeals which befall its inhabitants,
عَلَى أَنَّ ذَلِكَ بَلاءٌ وَّمَكْرُوهٌ، قَلِيلٌ مَّكْثُهُ، يَسِيرٌ بَقَاؤُهُ، قَصِيرٌ مُّدَّتُهُ
`ala an-na dha-lika bala-uw-wa mak-ruhun, qalilum-mak-thuhu, yasirum baqa-uhu, qasirum-mud-datuh
Even though it is a tribulation and ordeal whose stay is short, whose subsistence is but little and, whose period is but fleeting.
فَكَيْفَ احْتِمَاِلي لِبَلاءِ الآخِرَةِ وَجَلِيلِ وُقُوعِ الْمَكَارِهِ فِيهَا!
fa-kayfah-timali li-bala-il-akhirati wa jalili wuqui'l-makarihi fiha!
So how can I endure the tribulations of the next world and the great ordeals that occur within it?
وَهُوَ بَلاءٌ تَطُولُ مُدَّتُهُ، وَيَدُومُ مَقَامُهُ، وَلا يُخَفَّفُ عَنْ أَهْلِهِ
wa huwa bala-un tatulu mud-datuhu, wa yadumu maqamuhu, wa-la yukhaf-fafu `an ah-lih
For it is a tribulation whose period is long, whose station endures and whose sufferers are given no respite,
لأَنَّهُ لا يَكُونُ إِلاَّ عَنْ غَضَبِكَ وَانتِقَامِكَ وَسَخَطِكَ
li-an-nahu la yakunu il-la `an ghadabika wan-tiqamika wa sakhatik
Since it only occurs as a result of Your wrath, Your vengeance and Your anger,
وَهَذَا مَا لا تَقُومُ لَهُ السَّمَاوَاتُ وَالأَرْضُ
wa hadha ma la taqumu lahus-samawatu wal-ardu
And these cannot be withstood by the heavens and the earth.
يَا سَيِّدِي فَكَيْفَ بِي
ya say-yidi fakayfa bi
O Master, so what about me?!
وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ الضَّعِيفُ الذَّلِيلُ الْحَقِيرُ الْمِسْكِينُ الْمُسْتَكِينُ
wa ana `abukad-dae'efudh-dhalilul-haqirul-mis-kinul-mus-takin
For I am Your weak, lowly, base, wretched and miserable slave.
يَا إِلَهِي وَرَبِّي وَسَيِّدِي وَمَوْلاي
ya ilahi wa rab-bi wa say-yidi wa maw-lay
My God! My Lord! My Master! My Protector!
لأَيِّ الأُمُورِ إِلَيْكَ أَشْكُو
li-ay-yil-umuri ilayka ash-ku
For which things would I complain to You?
وَلِمَا مِنْهَا أَضِجُّ وَأَبْكِي
wa lima minha adij-ju wa ab-ki
And for which of them would I lament and weep?
لأَلِيمِ الْعَذَابِ وَشِدَّتِهِ!
li-alimil-`adhabi wa shid-datih
For the pain and severity of chastisement?
أَمْ لِطُولِ الْبَلاءِ وَمُدَّتِهِ!
am litulil-bala-i wa mud-datih
Or for the length and period of tribulation?
فَلَئِن صَيَّرْتَنِي لِلْعُقُوبَاتِ مَعَ أَعْدَائِكَ
fa-la-in say-yar-tani lil-u'qubati ma' a`da-ik
So if You takest me to the punishments with Your enemies,
وَجَمَعْتَ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَ أَهْلِ بَلائِكَ
wa jama`ta bayni wa bayna ahli bala-ik
And gatherest me with the people of Your tribulation
وَفَرَّقْتَ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَ أَحِبَّائِكَ وَأَوْلِيَائِكَ
wa far-raq-ta bay-ni wa bay-na ahib-ba-ika wa aw-li-ya-ik
And separatest me from Your friends and saints,
فَهَبْنِي يَا إِلَهِي وَسَيِّدِي وَمَوْلاي وَرَبِّي صَبَرْتُ عَلَى عَذَابِكَ،
fa-hab-ni ya ilahi wasay-yidi wa mawlaya wa rab-bi sabar-tu `ala `adhabika
Then suppose, My God, my Master, my Protector and my Lord that I am able to endure Your chastisement,
فَكَيْفَ أَصْبِرُ عَلَى فِرَاقِكَ
fakayfa as-biru `ala firaqika
How can I endure separation from You?
وَهَبْنِي صَبَرْتُ عَلَى حَرِّ نَارِكَ،
wa hab-ni sabar-tu `ala har-ri narika
And suppose that I am able to endure the heat of Your fire,
فَكَيْفَ أَصْبِرُ عَنِ النَّظَرِ إِلَى كَرَامَتِكَ
fakayfa as-biru `an-nazari ila karamatik
How can I endure not gazing upon Your generosity?
أَمْ كَيْفَ أَسْكُنُ فِي النَّارِ وَرَجَائِي عَفْوُكَ
am kayfa as-kunu fin-nari wa raja-i `af-wuk
Or how can I dwell in the Fire while my hope is Your pardon?
فَبِعِزَّتِكَ يَا سَيِّدِي وَمَوْلاي أُقْسِمُ صَادِقاً، لَئِن تَرَكْتَنِي نَاطِقاً
fabi-i'z-zatika ya say-yidi wa mawlaya uq-simu sadiqal-la-in tarak-tani natiqan
So by Your might, my Master and my protector, I swear sincerely, if You leavest me with speech,
لأَضِجَّنَّ إِلَيْكَ بَيْنَ أَهْلِهَا ضَجِيجَ الآمِلِينَ
ladij-jan-na ilayka bayna ah-liha dajijal-amilin
I will lament to You from the midst of the Fire's inhabitants with lamentation of the hopeful;
وَلأَصْرُخَنَّ إِلَيكَ صُرَاخَ المُسْتَصْرِخِينَ
wa lasrukhan-na ilayka surakhal-mus-tas-rikhin
I will cry to You with the cry of those crying for help;
وَلأَبْكِيَنَّ عَلَيْكَ بُكَاءَ الفَاقِدِينَ
wa-la-ab-ki-yan-na `ailayka buka-al-faqidin
I will weep to You with the weeping of the bereft;
وَلأُنَادِيَنَّكَ أَيْنَ كُنتَ يَا وَلِيَّ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ
wa la-unadi-yan-naka ay-na kun-ta ya wali-yal-mu-minin
And I will call to You, Where art You, O Sponsor of the believers,
يَا غَايَةَ آمَاِل العَارِفِينَ
ya ghayata a-malil-`arifin
O Goal of the hopes of Your knowers,
يَا غِيَاثَ المُسْتَغِيثِينَ
ya ghiyathal-mus-taghithin
O Aid of those who seek assistance,
يَا حَبِيبَ قُلُوبِ الصَّادِقِينَ
ya habiba qulubis-sadiqin
O Friend of the hearts of the sincere
وَيَا إِلَهَ العَالَمِينَ
wa ya ilhal-`alamin
And O God of all the world's inhabitants!
أَفَتُرَاكَ، سُبْحَانَكَ يَا إِلَهِي وَبِحَمْدِكَ، تَسْمَعُ فِيهَا صَوْتَ عَبْدٍ مُّسْلِمٍ
afaturaka sub-hanaka ya ilahi wa biham-dika tas-mau' fiha saw-ta `ab-dim-mus-limin
Canst You see Yourself — Glory be to You My God, and Thine is the praised — hearing within the Fire the voice of a slave surrendered to You,
سُجِنَ فِيهَا بِمُخَالَفَتِهِ
sujina fiha bi-mukhalafatih
Imprisoned there because of his violations,
وَذَاقَ طَعْمَ عَذَابِهَا بِمَعْصِيَتِهِ
wa dhaqa ta`ma `adhabiha bi-ma`si-yatih
Tasting the favour of its torment because of his disobedience,
وَحُبِسَ بَيْنَ أَطْبَاقِهَا بِجُرْمِهِ وَجَرِيرَتِهِ
wa hubisa bayna at-baqiha bijur-mih wa jariratih
And confined within its levels because of his sin and crime,
وَهُوَ يَضِجُّ إلَيْكَ ضَجِيجَ مُؤَمِّلٍ لِّرَحْمَتِكَ
wa huwa yadij-ju ilayka dajija muammilil-lirah-mat-k
While he laments to You with the lament of one hopeful for Your mercy,
وَيُنَادِيكَ بِلِسَانِ أَهْلِ تَوْحِيدِكَ
wa yunadika bi-lisani ahli taw-hidik
And calls to You with the tongue of those who profess Your Unity
وَيَتَوَسَّلُ إلَيْكَ بِرُبُوبِيَّتِكَ
wa yatawas-salu ilayka bi-rububi-yatik
And entreats You by Your lordship!
يَا مَوْلاي فَكَيْفَ يَبقَى فِي الْعَذَابِ وَهُوَ يَرْجُو مَا سَلَفَ مِنْ حِلْمِكَ
ya mawlay fa-kayfa yabqa fil-`adhabi wa huwa yar-ju ma salafa min hil-mik
My Protector, so how should he remain in the chastisement, while he has hope for Your previous clemency?
أَمْ كَيْفَ تُؤْلِمُهُ النَّارُ وَهُوَ يَامَلُ فَضْلَكَ وَرَحْمَتَكَ
am kayfa tu-limuhun-naru wa huwa ya-malu fadlaka wa rah-mataka
Or how should the Fire cause him pain while he expects Your bounty and mercy?
أَمْ كَيْفَ يُحْرِقُهُ لَهِيبُهَا وَأَنتَ تَسْمَعُ صَوْتَهُ وَتَرَى مَكَانَهُ
am kayfa yuh-riquhu lahibuha wa anta tas-mau' saw-tahu wa tara makanah
Or how should its flames burn him, while You hearest his voice and seest his place?
أَمْ كَيْفَ يَشْتَمِلُ عَلَيْهِ زَفِيرُهَا وَأَنتَ تَعْلَمُ ضَعْفَهُ
am kayfa yash-tamilu `ailayhi zafiruha wa anta ta`lamu da`fah
Or how should its groaning encompass him, while You knowest his weakness?
أَمْ كَيْفَ يَتَقَلْقَلُ بَيْنَ أَطْبَاقِهَا وَأَنتَ تَعْلَمُ صِدْقَهُ
am kayfa yataqalqalu bayna at-baqiha wa anta ta`lamu sid-qah
Or how should he be convulsed among its levels, while You knowest his sincerity?
أَمْ كَيْفَ تَزْجُرُهُ زَبَانِيَتُهَا وَهُوَ يُنَادِيكَ يَا رَبَّهُ
am kayfa tazjuruhu zabani-yatuha wa huwa yunadika ya rab-bah
Or how should its keepers torture him while he calls out to You, O Lord?
أَمْ كَيْفَ يَرْجُو فَضْلَكَ فِي عِتْقِهِ مِنْهَا فَتَتْرُكُهُ فِيهَا
am kayfa yar-ju fadlaka fi i't-qihi minha fatat-rukuhu fiha
Or how should he have hope of Your bounty in freeing him from it, while You abandonest him within it?
هَيهَاتَ مَا ذَلِكَ الظَّنُّ بِكَ
hayhat ma dhalikaz-zan-nu bik
Far be it from You! That is not what is expected of You,
وَلا الْمَعْرُوفُ مِن فَضْلِكَ
wa-lal-ma`rufu min fadlik
Nor what is well-known of Your bounty,
وَلا مُشْبِهٌ لِمَا عَامَلْتَ بِهِ الْمُوَحِّدِينَ مِنْ بِرِّكَ وَإِحْسَانِكَ
wa-la mush-biha lima `amal-ta bihil-muah-hidina mim bir-rika wa ih-sanik
Nor it is similar to the goodness and kindness You hast shown to those who profess Your Unity.
فَبِالْيَقِينِ أَقْطَعُ لَوْلا مَا حَكَمْتَ بِهِ مِن تَعْذِيبِ جَاحِدِيكَ
fa-bial-yaqini aq-tau' law-la ma hakam-ta bihi min ta`dhibi jahidik
So I declare with certainty that were it not for what You hast decreed concerning the chastisement of Your deniers
وَقَضَيْتَ بِهِ مِنْ إِخْلاَدِ مُعَانِدِيكَ
wa qadayta bihi min ikh-laydi mu`anidik
And what You hast foreordained concerning the everlasting home of those who stubbornly resist,
لَجَعَلْتَ النَّارَ كُلَّهَا بَرْداً وَّسَلاَماً،
laja'l-tan-nara kul-laha bar-daw-wa salama
You wouldst make the Fire, all of it, coolness and safety,
وَمَا كَانَ لأَحَدٍ فِيهَا مَقَرّاً وَّلا مُقَاماً
wa ma kana li-ahadin fiha maqar-raw-wa-la muqama
And no one would have a place of rest or abode within it.
لَّكِنَّكَ تَقَدَّسَتْ أَسْمَاؤُكَ أَقْسَمْتَ أَنْ تَمْلأَهَا مِنَ الْكَافِرِينَ،
lakin-naka taqad-dasat as-ma-uka aq-sam-ta an tam-laha minal-kafirina;
But You—holy are Your Names—hast sworn that You wilt fill it with the unbelievers,
مِنَ الْجِنَّةِ وَالنَّاسِ أَجْمَعِينَ
minal-jin-nati wan-nasi aj-m`ain
Both Jinn and men together,
وَأَن تُخَلِّدَ فِيهَا الْمُعَانِدِينَ
wa-an tukhal-lida fihal-mu`anidin
And that You wilt place those who stubbornly resist therein forever.
وَأَنتَ جَلَّ ثَنَاؤُكَ قُلْتَ مُبْتَدَئاً، وَّتَطَوَّلْتَ بِالإِنْعَامِ مُتَكَرِّماً:
wa anta jal-la thana-uka qul-ta mub-tadiwaw-wa tataw-wal-ta bil-in-`ami mutakar-rima
And You— majestic is Your eulogy— said at the beginning and wernt gracious through kindness as a favour,
أَفَمَن كَانَ مُؤْمِنًا كَمَن كَانَ فَاسِقًا ۚ لَّا يَسْتَوُونَ
afaman kana muminan kaman kana fasiqal-la yas-tawun
(What? Is he who has been believer like unto him who has been ungodly? They are not equal)
إِلَهِي وَسَيِّدِي فَأَسْألُكَ بِالْقُدْرَةِ الَّتِي قَدَّرْتَهَا
ilahi wa say-yidi fa-as-aluka bial-qud-ratil-lati qad-dartaha
My God and my Master! So I ask You by the power You hast apportioned
وَبِالْقَضِيَّةِ الَّتِي حَتَمْتَهَا وَحَكَمْتَهَا وَغَلَبْتَ مَنْ عَلَيْهِ أَجْرَيْتَهَا
wa bil-qadi-yatil-lati hatam-taha wa hakam-taha wa ghalab-ta man `ailayhi aj-raytaha
And by the decision which You hast determined and imposed and through which You hast overcome him toward whom it has been put into effect,
أَن تَهَبَ لِي، فِي هذِهِ اللَّيْلَةِ، وَفِي هَذِهِ السَّاعَةِ
an tahaba li fi hadhihil-laylati wa fi hadhihis-sa'ah
That You forgivest me in this night and at this hour
كُلَّ جُرْمٍ أَجْرَمْتُهُ
kul-la jur-min aj-ram-tuh
Every offence I have committed,
وَكُلَّ ذَنْبٍ أَذْنَبْتُهُ
wa kul-la dham-bin adhnab-tuh
And every sin I have performed,
وَكُلَّ قَبِيحٍ أَسْرَرْتُهُ
wa kul-la qabihin as-rar-tuh
And every ugly thing I have concealed
وَكُلَّ جَهْلٍ عَمِلْتُهُ،
wa kul-la jah-lin `amil-tuhu,
And every folly I have enacted
كَتَمْتُهُ أَوْ أَعْلَنتُهُ،
katam-tuhuo aw a`lan-tuhu,
Whether I have hidden or announced it,
أَخفَيْتُهُ أَوْ أَظْهَرْتُهُ
akhfaytuhuo aw azhar-tuh
Or I have concealed it or manifested it
وَكُلَّ سَيِّئَةٍ أَمَرْتَ بِإِثْبَاتِهَا الْكِرَامَ الكَاتِبِينَ
wa kul-la say-yi-atin amarta bi-ith-batihayal-kiramal-katibin
And every evil act which You hast commanded the Noble Writers to record,
الَّذِينَ وَكَّلْتَهُم بِحِفْظِ مَا يَكُونُ مِنِّي
al-ladhina wak-kal-tahum bi-hif-zi ma yakunu min-ni
Those whom You hast appointed to watch over what appears from me
وَجَعَلْتَهُمْ شُهُوداً عَلَيَّ مَعَ جَوَارِحِي،
wa ja'l-tahum shuhudan `alay-ya ma' jawarihi
And whom You hast made, along with my bodily members, witness against me.
وَكُنتَ أَنتَ الرَّقِيبَ عَلَيَّ مِن وَّرَائِهِمْ،
wa kunta antar-raqiba `alay-ya miw-wara-ihim
And You wast Yourself the Watcher over me from behind them,
وَالشَّاهِدَ لِمَا خَفِي عَنْهُمْ،
wash-shahida lima khafiya `an-hum
And the Witness of what is hidden from them
وَبِرَحْمَتِكَ أَخْفَيْتَهُ،
wa bi-rah-matika akh-faytahu
But through Your mercy You concealed it
وَبفَضْلِكَ سَتَرْتَهُ
wa bifadlika satar-tah
And through Your bounty You veiled it.
وَأَن تُوَفِّرَ حَظِّي مِن كُلِّ خَيْرٍ تُنْزِلُهُ،
wa an tuwf-fira haz-zi min kul-li khayrin tunziluh
[And I ask You] that You bestowest upon me an abundant share of every good You sendest down,
أَوْ إِحْسَانٍ تُفْضِلُهُ
aw ih-sanin tuf-diluh
Or kindness You conferrest,
أَوْ بِرٍّ تَنْشِرُهُ،
aw bir-rin tan-shiruhu
Or goodness You unfoldest,
أَوْ رِزْقٍ تَبْسُطُهُ
aw rizqin tab-sutuh
Or provision You spreadest out,
أَوْ ذَنْبٍ تَغْفِرُهُ
aw dham-bin tagh-firuyhu
Or sin You forgivest,
أَوْ خَطَأٍ تَسْتُرُهُ
aw khatain tas-turuhu
Or error You coverest.

And the greatest of Your Attributes and Names,
أن تَجْعَلَ أَوْقَاتِي فِي اللَّيلِ وَالنَّهَارِ بِذِكْرِكَ مَعْمُورَةً،
an taj-`ala aw-qati fil-layli wan-nahari bi-dhik-rika ma`murah
That You makest my times in the night and the day inhabited by Your remembrance,
وَبِخِدْمَتِكَ مَوْصُولَةً،
wa bikhid-matika maw-sulah
And joined to Your service
وَّأَعْمَاِلي عِنْدَكَ مَقْبُولَةً،
wa a`mali i'ndaka maq-bulah
And my works acceptable to You,
حَتَّى تَكُونَ أَعْمَاِلي وَأَوْرَادِي كُلُّهَا وِرْداً وَّاحِداً،
hat-ta takuna a`mali wa aw-radi kul-luha wir-daw-wahidan
So that my works and my litanies may all be a single litany
وَّحَاِلي فِي خِدْمَتِكَ سَرْمَداً
