Abu Hamza Thumali (r.a) was a close companion of Imam Sajjad (a.s) He has related that during the month of Ramadhan Imam Sajjad (a.s) used to spend a greater part of the night in prayers and when it used to be the time of beginning of the fast he recited the following dua.

دعاء أبي حمزة الثمالي

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ
In the Name of Allāh, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.
اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
My Lord, bestow Your blessings on Muhammad and his descendants
اِلٰہِیْ لَا تُؤَدِّبْنِيْ بِعُقُوْبَتِكَ،
O Allāh: Do not discipline me by means of Your punishment
وَ لَا تَمْكُرْ بِيْ فِيْ حِيْلَتِكَ،
And do not subject me to Your planned strategy
مِنْ اَيْنَ لِيَ الْخَيْرُ يَا رَبِّ وَ لَا يُوْجَدُ اِلَّا مِنْ عِنْدِكَ،
How can I attain welfare, O Lord, while it is not found anywhere save with You
وَ مِنْ اَيْنَ لِيَ النَّجاةُ وَ لَا تُسْتَطَاعُ اِلَّا بِكَ،
And how can I find redemption while it cannot be attained save through You,
لَا الَّذِيْ اَحْسَنَ اسْتَغْنٰى عَنْ عَوْنِكَ وَ رَحْمَتِكَ،
Neither he who has done righteous deeds can dispense with Your aid and mercy
وَ لَا الَّذِيْ اَسَاۤءَ وَ اجْتَرَا عَلَيْكَ وَ لَمْ يُرْضِكَ خَرَجَ عَنْ قُدْرَتِكَ،
Nor can he who did evildoings, dare to challenge you and did not arrive at Your pleasure find an exit out of Your power
يَا رَبِّ يَا رَبِّ يَا رَبِّ
O Lord…
بِكَ عَرَفْتُكَ
Through You have I known You
وَ اَنْتَ دَلَلْتَنِيْ عَلَيْكَ وَ دَعَوْتَنِيْ اِلَيْكَ،
You showed me the way to You and invited me to come towards You
وَ لَوْلَا اَنْتَ لَمْ اَدْرِ مَا انْتَ۔
Had it been not You, I would have never known who You are
اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّٰہِ الَّذِيْ اَدْعُوْهُ فَيُجِيْبُنِيْ
All praise be to Allāh alone Who gives answer to me whenever I pray Him
وَ اِنْ كُنْتُ بَطِيْئًا حِيْنَ يَدْعُوْنِيْ،
Although I am slow whenever He invites me
وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلّٰهِ الَّذِيْ اَسْاَلُهُ فَيُعْطِيْنِيْ
All praise be to Allāh alone Who gives me whenever I ask Him
وَ اِنْ كُنْتُ بَخِيْلًا حِيْنَ يَسْتَقْرِضُنِيْ،
Although I become close-fisted when He asks me
وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلّٰہِ الَّذِيْ اُنَادِيْهِ كُلَّمَا شِئْتُ لِحَاجَتِيْ،
All praise be to Allāh alone Whom I call whenever I need something
وَ اَخْلُوْ بِهٖ حَيْثُ شِئْتُ لِسِرِّيْ بِغَيْرِ شَفِيْعٍ
And Whom I secretly converse whenever I want without need for an intercessor
فَيَقْضِىْ لِيْ حَاجَتِيْ،
He thus settles my need
اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّٰہِ الَّذِيْ لَا اَدْعُوْ غَيْرَهُ
All praise be to Allāh alone other than Whom I never pray
وَ لَوْ دَعَوْتُ غَيْرَهُ لَمْ يَسْتَجِبْ لِيْ دُعَاۤئِـيْ،
And even if I pray anyone else, he shall never be able to respond to my prayer
وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّٰہِ الَّذِيْ لَا اَرْجُوْ غَيْرَهُ
All praise be to Allāh alone for other than Whom I do not hope
وَ لَوْ رَجَوْتُ غَيْرَهُ لَاَخْلَفَ رَجَاۤئِـيْ،
And even if I hope for anyone else, he shall certainly disappoint me
وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلّٰہِ الَّذِيْ وَكَلَنِيْ اِلَيْهِ فَاَكْرَمَنِيْ
All praise be to Allāh alone Who has accepted me to depend upon Him and, thus, bestowed favors upon me
وَ لَمْ يَكِلْنِيْ اِلَى النَّاسِ فَيُهِيْنُوْنِيْ،
He has not left me to the people who will thus definitely humiliate me
وَ اَلْحَمْدُ لِلّٰہِ الَّذِيْ تَحَبَّبَ اِلَىَّ وَ هُوَ غَنِيٌّ عَنِّيْ،
All praise be to Allāh alone Who has sought my friendship while He can dispense with me
وَ الْحَمْدُ لِلّٰہِ الَّذِيْ يَحْلُمُ عَنِّيْ حَتّٰى كَاَنِّيْ لَا ذَنْبَ لِيْ،
(All) praise be to Allāh (alone) Who showed Himself gentle and considerate towards me as if I have not sinned
فَرَبِّيْ اَحْمَدُ شَيْئٍ عِنْدِيْ وَ اَحَقُّ بِحَمْدِيْ۔
Accordingly, my Lord is the only One Whom I should thank and He is the worthiest of being thanked by me
اَللّٰہُمَّ اِنِّيْ اَجِدُ سُبُلَ الْمَطَالِبِ اِلَيْكَ مُشْرَعَةٌ،
O Allāh, I find the courses to asking from You wide open
وَ مَنَاهِلَ الرَّجَاۤءِ اِلَیْكَ مُتْرَعَةً،
And I find the springs to hoping for You overflowing
وَ الْاِسْتِعَانَةَ بِفَضْلِكَ لِمَنْ اَمَّلَكَ مُبَاحَةً،
And I find seeking the help of Your favor reachable for them who have hopefully looked forward to You
وَ اَبْوابَ الدُّعَاۤءِ إِلَيْكَ لِلصَّارِخِيْنَ مَفْتُوْحَةً،
And I find the doors of praying You vulnerable for them who cry to You
وَ اَعْلَمُ اَنَّكَ لِلرَّاجِيْ بِمَوْضِعِ اِجَابَةٍ،
And I know for sure that You give favorable reply to the petitioners
وَ لِلْمَلْهُوْفِيْنَ بِمَرْصَدِ اِغَاثَةٍ،
And that You relentlessly succor the aggrieved
وَ اَنَّ فِي اللهْفِ اِلٰى جُوْدِكَ وَالرِّضَا بِقَضَاۤئِكَ عِوَضًا مِنْ مَنْعِ الْبَاخِلِيْنَ،
And that to long for Your beneficence and to accept Your will and judgement are well compensation for that which the close-fisted misers deny
وَ مَنْدُوْحَةً عَمَّا فِيْ اَيْدِيْ الْمُسْتَاْثِرِيْنَ،
And an alternative to that which is possessed by the stingy
وَ اَنَّ الرَّاحِلَ اِلَيْكَ قَرِيْبُ الْمَسَافَةِ،
And that he who travels towards You will easily reach his destination
وَ اَنَّكَ لَا تَحْتَجِبُ عَنْ خَلْقِكَ اِلَّاۤ اَنْ تَحْجُبَهُمُ الْاَعْمَالُ دُوْنَكَ،
And that You do not conceal Yourself against Your creatures unless their evil doings stand between them and You
وَ قَدْ قَصَدْتُ اِلَيْكَ بِطَلِبَتِي،
I am thus turning to You carrying my appeals
وَ تَوَجَّهْتُ اِلَيْكَ بِحَاجَتِي،
And I am directing towards You carrying my needs
وَ جَعَلْتُ بِكَ اسْتِغاثَتِيْ،
And I have sought the help of You alone
وَ بِدُعَاۤئِكَ تَوَسُّلِيْ مِنْ غَيْرِ اسْتِحْقَاقٍ لِاسْتِمَاعِكَ مِنِّي، وَ لَا اسْتِيْجَابٍ لِعَفْوِكَ عَنِّيْ،
And I am begging You through my prayer although I do not deserve to be observed by You or to be pardoned by You
بَلْ لِثِقَتِيْ بِكَرَمِكَ،
Rather I have full confidence in Your generosity
وَ سُكُوْنِيْ اِلٰى صِدْقِ وَعْدِكَ،
And I have relied upon the truthfulness of Your promise
وَلَجَاۤئِـيْ اِلَى الْاِيْمَانِ بِتَوْحِيْدِكَ،
And I have sought shelter with my faith in Your Oneness
وَ يَقِيْنِيْ بِمَعْرِفَتِكَ مِنِّيْ اَنْ لَا رَبَّ لِيْ غَيْرُكَ،
and my certitude in the fact -which you know- that I have no Lord other than You
وَ لَاۤ اِلٰهَ اِلَّا اَنْتَ
And there is no god save You
وَحْدَكَ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَكَ۔
Alone without having any partner
اَللّٰہُمَّ اَنْتَ الْقَاۤئِلُ وَ قَوْلُكَ حَقٌّ،
O Allāh: It is You Who have said, and Your sayings are always true
وَ وَعْدُكَ صِدْقٌ
And Your promise is always valid:
وَاسْئَلُوْا اللّٰهَ مِنْ فَضْلِهِ اِنَّ اللّٰهَ كَانَ بِكُمْ رَحِیْمًا،
“Ask Allāh of His bounty. Verily Allāh is ever Merciful to you.”
وَ لَيْسَ مِنْ صِفاتِكَ يَا سَيِّدِيْ اَنْ تَاْمُرَ بِالسُّؤَالِ وَ تَمْنَعَ الْعَطِيَّةَ،
It is not Your habit, O my Chief, that You instruct us to implore You and then You stop giving us
وَ اَنْتَ الْمَنَّانُ بِالْعَطِيّاتِ عَلٰى اَهْلِ مَمْلِكَتِكَ،
And You are the All-benefactor Who confers upon the people of Your Kingdom with (innumerable) donations
وَ الْعَاۤئِدُ عَلَيْهِمْ بِتَحَنُّنِ رَاْفَتِكَ۔
And You are the All-generous Who meets them with the kindness of Your compassion
اِلٰہِیْ رَبَّيْتَنِيْ فِيْ نِعَمِكَ وَ اِحْسَانِكَ صَغِيْرًا،
O my God: You brought me up amid Your bounties and favors when I was little
وَ نَوَّهْتَ بِاسْمِيْ كَبِيْرًا،
And You have mentioned me when I have grown up
فَيَا مَنْ رَبَّانِيْ فِيْ الدُّنْيَا بِاِحْسَانِهِ وَ تَفَضُّلِهِ وَ نِعَمِهِ،
So, O He Who brought me up in this world with His bounties, favors, and graces
وَ اَشارَلِيْ فِي الْاٰخِرَةِ اِلٰى عَفْوِهِ وَ كَرَمِهِ،
And, in the Hereafter, will have referred to me with His amnesty and generosity
مَعْرِفَتِيْ يَا مَوْلَايَ دَلِيْلِيْ عَلَيْكَ،
My acquaintance with You, O my Lord, is the path taking me to You
وَ حُبِّيْ لَكَ شَفِيْعِيْ اِلَيْكَ،
And my love for You is the intermediary between You and me
وَ اَنَا وَاثِقٌ مِنْ دَلِيْلِيْ بِدَلَالَتِكَ،
And I am sure of the path to which You have lead me
وَ سَاكِنٌ مِنْ شَفِيْعِيْ اِلٰى شَفَاعَتِكَ،
And I rely upon my intermediary’s success before You
اَدْعُوْكَ يَا سَيِّدِيْ بِلِسَانٍ قَدْ اَخْرَسَهُ ذَنْبُهُ،
I pray You, O my Chief, with a tongue muted by its sins
رَبِّ اُنَاجِيْكَ بِقَلْبٍ قَدْ اَوْبَقَهُ جُرْمُهُ،
O Lord! I confidentially speak to You with a heart degraded by its offenses
اَدْعُوْكَ يا رَبِّ رَاهِبًا رَاغِبًا، رَاجِيًا خَاۤئِفًا،
I pray You, O Lord, with terror, desire, hope, and fear
اِذَا رَاَيْتُ مَوْلَايَ ذُنُوْبِيْ فَزِعْتُ،
Whenever I think of my sins, O my Master, I panic
وَ اِذَا رَاَيْتُ كَرَمَكَ طَمِعْتُ،
But when I think of Your generosity, I feel desirous (for Your pardon)
فَاِنْ عَفَوْتَ فَخَيْرُ رَاحِمٍ،
Therefore, if You forgive me, You are already the best of those who show mercy
وَ اِنْ عَذَّبْتَ فَغَيْرُ ظَالِمٍ،
And If punish me, You are then not wronging me
حُجَّتِيْ يَا اَللهُ فِيْ جُرْاَتِيْ عَلٰى مَسْئَلَتِكَ، مَعَ اِتْيَانِيْ مَا تَكْرَهُ جُوْدُكَ وَ كَرَمُكَ،
Yet, it is Your munificence and Your generosity, O Allāh, that gave me the courage to pray You despite that I have committed things that You dislike
وَ عُدَّتِيْ فِيْ شِدَّتِيْ مَعَ قِلَّةِ حَيَاۤئِـيْ رَافَتُكَ وَ رَحْمَتُكَ،
And it is Your kindness and mercy that I use as my means during misfortunes inflicting me despite my shamelessness
وَ قَدْ رَجَوْتُ اَنْ لَّا تَخِيْبَ بَيْنَ ذَيْنِ وَ ذَيْنِ مُنْيَتِيْ،
I thus hope that my expectation will not be disappointed amid these two matters
فَحَقِّقْ رَجَاۤئِـيْ،
So, make my hopes become real
وَاسْمَعْ دُعَاۤئِـيْ
And please do answer my prayers
ياَ خَيْرَ مَنْ دَعَاهُ دَاعٍ،
O the Greatest Besought One that has been ever besought
وَ اَفْضَلَ مَنْ رَجَاهُ رَاجٍ،
And the Most Favorable Hoped One
عَظُمَ يا سَيِّدِيْ اَمَلِيْ، وَ سٰۤاۤءَ عَمَلِيْ،
My expectation, O my Chief, has been great but my deed has been bad
فَاَعْطِنِيْ مِنْ عَفْوِكَ بِمِقْدَارِ اَمَلِيْ،
So grant me Your pardon as much as my expectation
وَلَا تُؤَاخِذْنِيْ بِاَسْوَءِ عَمَلِيْ،
And do not punish me for the worst of my deed
فَاِنَّ كَرَمَكَ يَجِلُّ عَنْ مُجَازَاةِ الْمُذْنِبِيْنَ،
Verily, Your generosity is too great to be compared to the penalty of the guilty
وَ حِلْمَكَ يَكْبُرُ عَنْ مُكَافَاةِ الْمُقَصِّرِيْنَ،
And Your tolerance is too immense to be compared to the punishment of the negligent
وَ اَنَا يَا سَيِّدِيْ عَاۤئِذٌ بِفَضْلِكَ،
And I, O my Chief, am seeking refuge with Your benevolence
هَارِبٌ مِنْكَ اِلَيْكَ،
And I am fleeing from You towards You
مُتَنَجِّزٌ مَا وَعَدْتَ مِنَ الصَّفْحِ عَمَّنْ اَحْسَنَ بِكَ ظَنًّا،
Hoping for the amnesty that You have promised to confer upon him who keeps good idea about You
وَمَا اَنَا يَا رَبِّ وَمَا خَطَرِيْ،
What am I? O Lord! And what importance do I have?
هَبْنِيْ بِفَضْلِكَ،
Do me a favor out of Your benevolence
وَتَصَدَّقْ عَلَيَّ بِعَفْوِكَ،
And be charitable to me by means of pardoning me
اَيْ رَبِّ جَلِّلْنِيْ بِسَتْرِكَ،
O my Lord! Cover me with Your protective covering
وَاعْفُ عَنْ تَوْبِيْخِيْ بِكَرَمِ وَجْهِكَ،
And overlook reproaching me out of the generosity of Your Face
فَلَوِ اطَّلَعَ الْيَوْمَ عَلٰى ذَنْبِيْ غَيْرُكَ مَا فَعَلْتُهُ،
In fact, if anyone other than You have watched me while committing these sins, I may not commit them
وَ لَوْ خِفْتُ تَعْجِيْلَ الْعُقُوْبَةِ لَاجْتَنَبْتُهُ،
And had I anticipated immediateness of punishment, I might have avoided doing them
لَا لِاَنَّكَ اَهْوَنُ النَّاظِرِيْنَ وَ اَخَفُّ الْمُطَّلِعِيْنَ،
Yet, this does not mean that You are the least important of those who watch over me. Or You are the least weighty of those who observe me
بَلْ لِاَنَّكَ يَا رَبِّ خَيْرُ السَّاتِرِيْنَ،
Rather, this is because You, O my Lord, are the best of those who cover up (one’s defects)
وَاَحْكَمُ الْحَاكِمِيْنَ،
And the wisest of those who judge
وَ اَكْرَمُ الْاَكْرَمِيْنَ،
And the most generous of those who act generously
سَتَّارُ الْعُيُوْبِ،
The concealer of defects
غَفّارُ الذُّنُوْبِ،
the Forgiver of sins
عَلَّامُ الْغُيُوْبِ،
the Knower of the unseen
تَسْتُرُ الذَّنْبَ بِكَرَمِكَ،
You conceal the defects out of Your liberality
وَ تُؤَخِّرُ الْعُقُوْبَةَ بِحِلْمِكَ،
And puts off punishment because of Your forbearance
فَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ عَلٰى حِلْمِكَ بَعْدَ عِلْمِكَ،
Hence, all praise be to You, for You act tolerably although You have full knowledge
وَ عَلٰى عَفْوِكَ بَعْدَ قُدْرَتِكَ،
And for Your pardon even Though You have the absolute authority
وَ يَحْمِلُنِيْ وَ يُجَرِّئُنِيْ عَلٰى مَعْصِيَتِكَ حِلْمُكَ عَنِّيْ،
It is Your forbearance to me that gives me latitude and makes me dare to break Your laws
وَ يَدْعُوْنِيْ اِلٰى قِلَّةِ الْحَيَاۤءِ سِتْرُكَ عَلَيَّ،
And it is Your concealing my faults that makes me act shamelessly before You
وَ يُسْرِعُنِيْ اِلَى التَّوَثُّبِ عَلٰى مَحَارِمِكَ مَعْرِفَتِيْ بِسَعَةِ رَحْمَتِكَ، وَ عَظِيْمِ عَفْوِكَ۔
And it is my acquaintance with the broadness of Your mercy and the magnitude of Your pardon that make me hurry to violate that which You have deemed forbidden
يَا حَلِيْمُ يَا كَرِيْمُ
O Indulgent, O Compassionate,
يَا حَيُّ يَا قَيُّوْمُ
O Ever-living, O Eternal,
يَا غَافِرَ الذَّنْبِ
O Forgiver of sins,
يَا قَابِلَ التَّوْبِ
O Acceptor of repentance
يَا عَظِيْمَ الْمَنِّ
O Owner of matchless bounties,
يَا قَدِيْمَ الْاِحْسَانِ
O He who has been doing favors since eternity.
اَيْنَ سِتْرُكَ الْجَمِيْلُ
Where is Your magnificent concealment (of one’s faults)?
اَيْنَ عَفْوُكَ الْجَلِيْلُ
Where is Your irreversible pardon?
اَيْنَ فَرَجُكَ الْقَرِيْبُ
Where is Your abrupt relief
اَيْنَ غِيَاثُكَ السَّرِيْعُ
Where is Your immediate aid?
اَيْنَ رَحْمَتُكَ الْوَاسِعَةُ
Where is Your boundless mercy?
اَيْنَ عَطَايَاكَ الْفَاضِلَةُ
Where is Your Overflowing gifts?
اَيْنَ مَوَاهِبُكَ الْهَنِيْئَةُ
Where are Your pleasant endowments?
اَيْنَ صَنَاۤئِعُكَ السَّنِيَّةُ
Where are Your beautiful benefits?
اَيْنَ فَضْلُكَ الْعَظِيْمُ
Where is Your outstanding grace?
اَيْنَ مَنُّكَ الْجَسِيْمُ
Where are Your giant bounties?
اَيْنَ اِحْسَانُكَ الْقَدِيْمُ
Where are Your eternal favors?
اَيْنَ كَرَمُكَ يَا كَرِيْمُ
Where is Your generous liberality? O Generous Giver!
بهِ وَ بِمُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ فَاسْتَنْقِذْنِيْ
In Your name and in the name of Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad, save me
وَ بِرَحْمَتِكَ فَخَلِّصْنِيْ
And by Your mercy, deliver me
يَا مُحْسِنُ
O All-benevolent
يَا مُجْمِلُ
O All-beneficent
يَا مُنْعِمُ يَا مُفْضِلُ
O All-gracious, O All-compassionate
لَسْتُ اَتَّكِلُ فِيْ النَّجاةِ مِنْ عِقابِكَ عَلٰى اَعْمَالِنَا
In my salvation from Your punishment, I do not rely upon my deeds
بَلْ بِفَضْلِكَ عَلَيْنَا
rather I depend on Your liberal generosity to us
لِاَنَّكَ اَهْلُ التَّقْوٰى وَ اَهْلُ الْمَغْفِرَةِ
Because You are verily the Lord of righteousness and the Lord of forgiveness
تُبْدِئُ بِالْاِحْسَانِ نِعَمًا
You take the initiative in doing good out of Your graciousness
وَ تَعْفُوْ عَنِ الذَّنْبِ كَرَمًا
And You overlook the sins out of Your generosity
فَمَا نَدْرِيْ مَا نَشْكُرُ
We thus do not know which of Your graces we should thank
اَجَمِيْلَ مَا تَنْشُرُ، اَمْ قَبِيْحَ مَا تَسْتُرُ
Should it be the handsome elegance that you spread over us, or our offensive deeds that you conceal?
اَمْ عَظِيْمَ مَا اَبْلَيْتَ وَ اَوْلَيْتَ
Or should it be the fabulous favor that You grant and present,
اَمْ كَثِيْرَ مَا مِنْهُ نَجَّيْتَ وَ عَافَيْتَ
or the numerous misfortunes from which You have saved and relieved?
يَا حَبِيْبَ مَنْ تَحَبَّبَ اِلَيْكَ
O the Beloved of those who endear themselves to Him
وَ يَا قُرَّةَ عَيْنِ مَنْ لَّاذَ بِكَ وَانْقَطَعَ اِلَيْكَ
O the delight of the eyes of those who resort to Him and communicate Him incessantly
اَنْتَ الْمُحْسِنُ وَ نَحْنُ الْمُسِيْئُوْنَ
You are the All-benevolent and we are the malevolent
فَتَجاوَزْ يَا رَبِّ عَنْ قَبِيْحِ مَا عِنْدَنَا بِجَمِيْلِ مَا عِنْدَكَ
So, overlook, O Lord, the offensive that we hold by means of the good that You hold
وَ اَيُّ جَهْلٍ يَا رَبِّ لَا يَسَعُهُ جُوْدُكَ
There is not definitely any foolishness that can be uncovered by Your liberality
اَوْ اَيُّ زَمَانٍ اَطْوَلُ مِنْ اَنَاتِكَ
And there is no period that may be longer than Your tolerance
وَ مَا قَدْرُ اَعْمالِنَا فِيْ جَنْبِ نِعَمِكَ
What value remains for our deeds if compared to Your favors!
وَ كَيْفَ نَسْتَكْثِرُ اَعْمالًا نُقَابِلُ بِهَا كَرَمَكَ
And how can we ever deem much any deeds if compared to Your generosity!
بَلْ كَيْفَ يَضِيْقُ عَلَى الْمُذْنِبِيْنَ مَا وَسِعَهُمْ مِنْ رَحْمَتِكَ
Moreover, how may Your broad mercy be narrow for the guilty?
يَا وَاسِعَ الْمَغْفِرَةِ
O the Extensive Forgiver,
يَا بَاسِطَ الْيَدَيْنِ بِالرَّحْمَةِ
O He Who extends both hands with mercy
فَوَ عِزَّتِكَ يَا سَيِّدِيْ
By Your Majesty I swear, O my Lord,
لَوْ نَهَرْتَنِيْ مَا بَرِحْتُ مِنْ بَابِكَ، وَ لَا كَفَفْتُ عَنْ تَمَلُّقِكَ
even if you chide me, I shall never leave Your Door and I shall never stop flattering You
لِمَا انْتَهٰى اِلَيَّ مِنَ الْمَعْرِفَةِ بِجُوْدِكَ وَ كَرِمِكَ
This is because I have full acquaintance with Your (indescribable) generosity and bounty
وَ اَنْتَ الْفاعِلُ لِمَا تَشَاۤءُ
And verily You do whatever You will
تُعَذِّبُ مَنْ تَشَاۤءُ بِمَا تَشَاۤءُ كَيْفَ تَشَاۤءُ
You punish whomsoever You want however You want by whatever means You want
وَ تَرْحَمُ مَنْ تَشَاۤءُ بِمَا تَشَاۤءُ كَيْفَ تَشَاۤءُ
And You have mercy upon whomsoever You want however You want by whatever means You want
وَلَا تُسْئَلُ عَنْ فِعْلِكَ
None is supposed to interrogate You for whatever You do
وَ لَا تُنازَعُ فِيْ مُلْكِكَ
and non can ever contend with You about Your authority
وَ لَا تُشارَكُ فِيْ اَمْرِكَ
And none can ever have a share in that which You hold
وَ لَا تُضَاۤدُّ فِيْ حُكْمِكَ
And none can ever object to Your decisions
وَ لَا يَعْتَرِضُ عَلَيْكَ اَحَدٌ فِيْ تَدْبِيْرِكَ
And none can ever protest against that which You administer
لَكَ الْخَلْقُ وَ الْاَمْرُ
To You alone is creation and determination
تَبارَكَ اللهُ رَبُّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ
Blessed be Allāh, the Lord of the worlds
يَا رَبِّ هٰذَا مَقَامُ مَنْ لَّاذَبِكَ
O my Lord, this is the manner of him who seeks Your shelter,
وَاسْتَجَارَ بِكَرَمِكَ
And resorts to Your liberality
وَ اَلِفَ اِحْسَانَكَ وَ نِعَمَكَ
And has been accustomed to be included with Your benevolence and graciousness
وَ اَنْتَ الْجَوادُ الَّذِيْ لَا يَضِيْقُ عَفْوُكَ
And You are certainly the All-munificent Whose amnesty never shrinks
وَ لَا يَنْقُصُ فَضْلُكَ
And Whose favor never reduces
وَ لَا تَقِلُّ رَحْمَتُكَ
And Whose mercy never diminishes
وَ قَدْ تَوَثَّقْنَا مِنْكَ بِالصَّفْحِ الْقَدِيْمِ
We have full confidence in You on account of Your eternal habit of pardons
وَ الْفَضْلِ الْعَظيمِ، وَ الرَّحْمَةِ الْواسِعَةِ
And boundless kindness and limitless mercy
اَفَتُرَاكَ يَا رَبِّ تُخْلِفُ ظُنُوْنَنَا
Is it ever expectable, O Lord, that You may disappoint us
اَوْ تُخَيِّبُ اَمَالَنَا
or may act on the contrary of our expectations?
كَلَّا يَا كَرِيْمُ، فَلَيْسَ هٰذَا ظَنُّنَا بِكَ، وَ لَا هٰذَا فِيْكَ طَمَعُنَا
No, never. O Compassionate! This is neither our idea about You nor our desire from You!
يَا رَبِّ، اِنَّ لَنَا فِيْكَ اَمَلًا طَوِيْلًا كَثِيْرًا
O my Lord: verily we have hope, big and large, in You
اِنَّ لَنَا فِيْكَ رَجَاۤءً عَظِيْمًا
Verily we have great expectation in You
عَصَيْنَاكَ وَ نَحْنُ نَرْجُوْ اَنْ تَسْتُرَ عَلَيْنَا
Although that we have disobeyed You, we still hope that You will cover our faults
وَ دَعَوْنَاكَ وَ نَحْنُ نَرْجُوْ اَنْ تَسْتَجِيْبَ لَنَا
And we have prayed You hoping that You will respond to us
فَحَقِّقْ رَجَاۤءَنَا مَوْلَانَا
So, give success to our hopes, O our Lord!
فَقَدْ عَلِمْنا مَا نَسْتَوْجِبُ بِاَعْمَالِنَا
We now know for sure that which we deserve in exchange of our deeds
وَلكِنْ عِلْمُكَ فِينَا وَعِلْمُنَا بِأَنَّكَ لا تَصْرِفُنَا عَنْكَ حَثَّنَا عَلَى الرَّغْبَةِ إلَيْكَ
Yet, Your knowledge about us and our knowledge that You shall never let us down have urged us to desire for You
وَ اِنْ كُنَّا غَيْرَ مُسْتَوْجِبِيْنَ لِرَحْمَتِكَ
Even if we do not deserve Your mercy
فَاَنْتَ اَهْلٌ اَنْ تَجُوْدَ عَلَيْنَا وَ عَلَى الْمُذْنِبِيْنَ بِفَضْلِ سَعَتِكَ
However, You are the worthiest of conferring upon us and upon the guilty with the grace of Your broad benevolence
فَامْنُنْ عَلَيْنَا بِمَا اَنْتَ اَهْلُهُ
So, confer upon us with that of which You are worth
وَ جُدْ عَلَيْنَا فَاِنَّا مُحْتَاجُوْنَ اِلٰى نَيْلِكَ
And act generously with us for we are in need from Your conferral
يَا غَفَّارُ بِنُوْرِكَ اهْتَدَيْنَا
O Oft-Forgiving, in Your light have we found the right path
وَ بِفَضْلِكَ اسْتَغْنَيْنَا
And due to Your favor have we dispensed with the others
وَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ اَصْبَحْنَا وَ اَمْسَيْنَا
And Your grace have we experienced in mornings and evenings
ذُنُوْبُنَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ
Our sins are before You
نَسْتَغْفِرُكَ اللّٰهُمَّ مِنْهَا وَ نَتُوْبُ اِلَيْكَ
We beseech You, O Allah, to forgive them and we repent before You
تَتَحَبَّبُ اِلَيْنَا بِالنِّعَمِ وَ نُعَارِضُكَ بِالذُّنُوْبِ
Whilst You show affection to us through Your graces, we take ourselves away from You through our sins
خَيْرُكَ اِلَيْنَا نازِلٌ
Your good descend upon us
وَ شَرُّنَا اِلَيْكَ صَاعِدٌ
While our evildoing ascends to You
وَ لَمْ يَزَلْ وَ لَا يَزَالُ مَلَكٌ كَرِيْمٌ يَاْتِيْكَ عَنَّا بِعَمَلٍ قَبِيْحٍ
Albeit a noble angel always carries to You our offensive deeds,
فَلَا يَمْنَعُكَ ذٰلِكَ مِنْ اَنْ تَحُوْطَنَا بِنِعَمِكَ
this has never made you stop encompassing us with Your graces
وَ تَتَفَضَّلَ عَلَيْنَا بِاٰلَاۤئِكَ
And conferring upon us your elegances
فَسُبْحَانَكَ مَا اَحْلَمَكَ وَ اَعْظَمَكَ وَ اَكْرَمَكَ مُبْدِئًا وَ مُعِيْدًا
Glory be to You! How Forbearing, Magnificent, and Generous You are at all times!
تَقَدَّسَتْ اَسْمَاؤُكَ
Sacred be Your Names
وَ جَلَّ ثَنَاؤُكَ
Grand be Your praise
وَ كَرُمَ صَنَاۤئِعُكَ وَ فِعَالُكَ
Munificent be Your deeds and acts
اَنْتَ اِلٰہِیْ اَوْسَعُ فَضْلًا
You, O my Lord, are too expansive in graciousness
وَ اَعْظَمُ حِلْمًا مِنْ اَنْ تُقَايِسَنِيْ بِفِعْلِيْ وَ خَطِيْئَتِيْ
and too great in forbearance to punish me for my evildoings and sins
فَالْعَفْوَ الْعَفْوَ الْعَفْوَ
(Here I am asking for) Amnesty, (Here I am asking for) Amnesty, (Here I am asking for) Amnesty
سَيِّدِيْ سَيِّدِيْ سَيِّدِيْ
O my Lord! O my Lord! O my Lord!
اَللّٰہُمَّ اشْغَلْنَا بِذِكْرِكَ
O Allah: make us be engaged with mentioning You
وَ اَعِذْنَا مِنْ سَخَطِكَ
And save us from Your wrath
وَ اَجِرْنَا مِنْ عَذَابِكَ
And deliver us from Your torture
وَ ارْزُقْنَا مِنْ مَوَاهِبِكَ
And grant us Your donations
وَ اَنْعِمْ عَلَيْنَا مِنْ فَضْلِكَ
And confer upon us with Your grace
وَ ارْزُقْنَا حَجَّ بَيْتِكَ
And provide us the opportunity to go on pilgrimage to Your House
وَ زِيَارَةَ قَبْرِ نَبِيِّكَ
And to visit the tomb of Your Prophet
صَلَوَاتُكَ وَ رَحْمَتُكَ وَ مَغْفِرَتُكَ وَ رِضْوانُكَ عَلَيْهِ وَ عَلٰى اَهْلِ بَيْتِهِ
May Your blessings, mercy, forgiveness, and pleasure be upon him and his Household
اِنَّكَ قَرِيْبٌ مُجِيْبٌ
Verily You are nigh and ready to answer
وَارْ زُقْنَا عَمَلًا بِطَاعَتِكَ
And bless us with acting upon the obedience to You
وَ تَوَفَّنَا عَلٰى مِلَّتِكَ، وَ سُنَّةِ نَبِيِّكَ
And receive us following the rule of You and Your Prophet
صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ اٰلِهِ
Blessings of Allāh be on him and on his Family
اَللّٰہُمَّ اغْفِرْلِيْ وَ لِوالِدَيَّ وَارْحَمْهُمَا كَمَا رَبَّيَانِيْ صَغِيْرًا
O Allah: forgive me and my parents, and have mercy on them as they did care for me when I was little
اجْزِهِمَا بِالْاِحْسَانِ اِحْسَانًا وَ بِالسَّيِّئَاتِ غُفْرَانًا
Reward them generously for their good deeds and forgive their sins
اَللّٰہُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِلْمُؤْمِنينَ وَ الْمُؤْمِنَاتِ الْاَحيَاۤءِ مِنْهُمْ وَالْاَمْوَاتِ
O Allāh: forgive the faithful men and women, be they alive or dead
وَ تابِعْ بَيْنَنَا وَ بَيْنَهُمْ بِالْخَيْراتِ
And join us together in bliss and happiness
اَللّٰہُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِحَيِّنَا وَ مَيِّتِنَا
O Allāh: forgive our living and dead persons
وَ شَاهِدِنَا وَ غاۤئِبِنَا
And our present and absent ones
ذَكَرِنَا وَ اُنْثَانَا
And our male and female ones
صَغِيْرِنَا وَ كَبِيْرِنَا
And our infants and adults
حُرِّنَا وَ مَمْلُوْكِنَا
And our masters and slaves
كَذَبَ الْعادِلُوْنَ بِاللهِ
Liars are those who ascribe rivals to Allāh
وَ ضَلُّوْا ضَلَالًا بَعِيْدًا
And they have wandered far astray
وَ خَسِرُوْا خُسْرَانًا مُبِيْنًا
And they will have suffered a manifest loss
اَللّٰہُمَّ صَلِّ عَلٰى مُحَمَّدٍ وَّ اٰلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
O Allah: send blessings on Muhammad and the Family of Muhammad
وَ اخْتِمْ لِيْ بِخَيْرٍ
And seal my life with decency
وَ اكْفِنِيْ مَا اَهَمَّني مِنْ اَمْرِ دُنْيَايَ وَ اٰخِرَتِيْ
And help me overcome all that which aggrieves me in this world as well as the Hereafter
وَلَا تُسَلِّطْ عَلَيَّ مَنْ لَّا يَرْحَمُنِيْ
And do not let him who does not have mercy upon me prevail on me
وَاجْعَلْ عَلَيَّ مِنْكَ وَاقِيَةً بَاقِيَةً
And always keep on me an everlasting, protective covering
وَلَا تَسْلُبْنِيْ صَالِحَ مَا اَنْعَمْتَ بِهِ عَلَيَّ
And do not divest me of the well-mannered graces that You have conferred upon me
وَارْزُقْنِيْ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ رِزْقًا وَاسِعًا حَلَالًا طَيِّبًا
And provide me, out of Your grace, with lawfully gotten, delightful sustenance
اَللّٰہُمَّ احْرُسْنِيْ بِحَرَاسَتِكَ
O Allah: keep me under Your alert surveillance
وَاحْفَظْنِيْ بِحِفْظِكَ
And protect me with Your support
وَاكْلَانِيْ بِكِلٰۤاۤئَتِكَ
And take care of me with Your comprehensive care
وَارْزُقْنِيْ حَجَّ بَيْتِكَ الْحَرَامِ فِيْ عَامِنَا هذَا وَ فِيْ كُلِّ عَامٍ
And grant me to go on pilgrimage to Your Holy House in this year as well as all coming years
وَ زِيَارَةَ قَبْرِ نَبِيِّكَ وَالْاَئِمَّةِ عَلَيْهِمُ السَّلَامُ
And also grant me to go on pilgrimage to the tomb of Your Prophet and the Imams—peace be upon them
وَ لَا تُخْلِنِيْ يَا رَبِّ مِنْ تِلْكَ الْمَشَاهِدِ الشَّرِيْفَةِ، وَ الْمَوَاقِفِ الْكَرِيْمَةِ
And do not deprive me, O Lord, of such honorable scenes and noble situations
اَللّٰہُمَّ تُبْ عَلَيَّ حَتّٰى لَا اَعْصِيَكَ
O Allah: Accept my repentance so that I will not disobey you ever again
وَ اَلْهِمْنِيْ الْخَيْرَ وَ الْعَمَلَ بِهِ
And inspire me with goodness and good-doing
وَ خَشْيَتَكَ بِاللَّيْلِ وَ النَّهارِ مَا اَبْقَيْتَنِيْ
And with fearing You all over day and night so long as You keep me alive
يَا رَبَّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ
O the Lord of the worlds.
اَللّٰہُمَّ اِنِّيْ كُلَّمَا قُلْتُ قَدْ تَهَيَّاتُ وَ تَعَبَّاتُ وَ قُمْتُ لِلصَّلَاةِ بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ وَ نَاجَيْتُكَ
O Allāh: each time I decide to prepare myself for offering prayers before You and converse confidentially with You,
اَلْقَيْتَ عَلَيَّ نُعَاسًا اِذَا اَنَا صَلَّيْتُ
You throw on me slumber whenever I stand for prayer
وَ سَلَبْتَنِيْ مُنَاجَاتَكَ اِذَا اَنَا نَاجَيْتُ
And thus You deprive me of conversing with You confidentially whenever I try so
مَالِيْ كُلَّمَا قُلْتُ قَدْ صَلَحَتْ سَرِيْرَتِيْ
What is the wrong with me? Whenever I feel that my inner self has become decent
وَ قَرُبَ مِنْ مَجَالِسِ التَّوّابِيْنَ مَجْلِسِيْ
And that my session has become similar to that of those who turn much to You,
عَرَضَتْ لِيْ بَلِيَّةٌ اَزَالَتْ قَدَمِيْ وَ حَالَتْ بَيْنِيْ وَ بَيْنَ خِدْمَتِكَ
A misfortune would inflict me causing my feet to be shaken and standing against my showing servitude to You
سَيِّدِيْ لَعَلَّكَ عَنْ بَابِكَ طَرَدْتَنِيْ
O my Master, perhaps You have pushed me away from Your door!
وَ عَنْ خِدْمَتِكَ نَحَّيْتَنِيْ اَوْ لَعَلَّكَ رَاَيْتَنِيْ مُسْتَخِفًّا بِحَقِّكَ فَاَقْصَيْتَنِيْ
And You have dismissed me from Your service!
اَوْ لَعَلَّكَ رَاَيْتَنِيْ مُعْرِضًا عَنْكَ فَقَلَيْتَنِيْ
Or, perhaps, You have noticed that I belittled the duties that You have made incumbent upon me, and You thus set me aside!
اَوْ لَعَلَّكَ وَجَدْتَنِيْ فِيْ مَقَامِ الْكَاذِبِيْنَ فَرَفَضْتَنِيْ
Or, perhaps, You have found me in the manner of the liars and thus You have rejected me
اَوْ لَعَلَّكَ رَاَيْتَنِيْ غَيْرَ شَاكِرٍ لِنَعْمَاۤئِكَ فَحَرَمْتَنِيْ
Or, perhaps, You have observed me showing no gratitude for Your graces and thus You have deprived me of them
اَوْ لَعَلَّكَ فَقَدْتَنِيْ مِنْ مَجالِسِ الْعُلَمَاۤءِ فَخَذَلْتَنِيْ
Or, perhaps, You have not found me in the sessions of the scholars and thus You have let me down
اَوْ لَعَلَّكَ رَاَيْتَنِيْ فِى الْغَافِلِيْنَ فَمِنْ رَحْمَتِكَ اٰيَسْتَنِيْ
Or, perhaps, You have seen me among the inattentive ones and thus You have made me despair of Your mercy
اَوْ لَعَلَّكَ رَاَيْتَنِيْ اٰلِفَ مَجَالِسِ الْبَطَّالِيْنَ فَبَيْنِيْ وَ بَيْنَهُمْ خَلَّيْتَنِيْ
Or, perhaps, You have found me fond of the sessions of the wrongdoers and thus You have referred me to them
اَوْ لَعَلَّكَ لَمْ تُحِبَّ اَنْ تَسْمَعَ دُعَاۤئِیْ فَبَاعَدْتَنِيْ
Or, perhaps, You have not willed to hear my prayers and thus You have kept me away from You
اَوْ لَعَلَّكَ بِجُرْمِيْ وَ جَرِيْرَتِيْ كَافَيْتَنِيْ
Or, perhaps, You have punished me for my offenses and sins
اَوْ لَعَلَّكَ بِقِلَّةِ حَيَاۤئِـيْ مِنْكَ جَازَيْتَنِيْ
Or, perhaps, You have penalized me for my shamelessness
فَاِنْ عَفَوْتَ يَا رَبِّ فَطَالَ مَا عَفَوْتَ عَنِ الْمُذْنِبِيْنَ قَبْلِيْ
If You forgive me, O Lord, then You have occasionally forgiven the sinners like me
لِاَنَّ كَرَمَكَ اَيْ رَبِّ يَجِلُّ عَنْ مُكَافَاتِ الْمُقَصِّرِيْنَ
Because Your compassion, O my Lord, is too great to be compared to the punishment of the negligent
وَ اَنَا عَاۤئِذٌ بِفَضْلِكَ، هَارِبٌ مِنْكَ اِلَيْكَ
And I am now seeking refuge with Your generosity and fleeing for You to You
مُتَنَجِّزٌ مَا وَعَدْتَ مِنَ الصَّفْحِ عَمَّنْ اَحْسَنَ بِكَ ظَنًّا
Hoping for the promise that You have taken as regard pardoning those who have good idea about You
اِلٰہِیْ اَنْتَ اَوْسَعُ فَضْلًا
O my God: You are too expansive in favor
وَ اَعْظَمُ حِلْمًا مِنْ اَنْ تُقايِسَنِيْ بِعَمَلِيْ
And too great in forbearance to punish me for my deed
اَوْ اَنْ تَسْتَزِلَّنِيْ بِخَطِيْئَتِيْ
Or to chastise me for my sin
وَ مَا اَنَا يَا سَيِّدِيْ وَ مَا خَطَرِيْ
What am I? O Master! And what is my weight?
هَبْنِيْ بِفَضْلِكَ سَيِّدِيْ
Excuse me out of Your favor, O my Master
وَ تَصَدَّقْ عَلَيَّ بِعَفْوِكَ
And act to me charitably our of Your pardon
وَ جَلِّلْنِيْ بِسِتْرِكَ
And cover me with Your covering
وَاعْفُ عَنْ تَوْبِيْخِيْ بِكَرَمِ وَجْهِكَ
And let off chiding me out of the liberality of Your Face
سَيِّدِي اَنَا الصَّغِيْرُ الَّذِيْ رَبَّيْتَهُ
O my Master! I am the little that You have brought up
وَ اَنَا الْجاهِلُ الَّذِيْ عَلَّمْتَهُ
And I am the ignorant that You have taught
وَ أَنَا الضَّالُّ الَّذِيْ هَدَيْتَهُ
And I am the straying that You have guided
وَ اَنَا الْوَضِيْعُ الَّذِيْ رَفَعْتَهُ
And I am the humble that You have given rise
وَ اَنَا الْخَاۤئِفُ الَّذِيْ اٰمَنْتَهُ
And I am the afraid that You have given security
وَ الْجَايِعُ الَّذِيْ اَشْبَعْتَهُ
And I am the hungry that You have satiated
وَ الْعَطْشَانُ الَّذِيْ اَرْوَيْتَهُ
And I am the thirsty that You have watered
وَ الْعَارِي الَّذِيْ كَسَوْتَهُ
And I am the naked that You have dressed
وَ الْفَقيرُ الَّذِيْ اَغْنَيْتَهُ
And I am the poor that You have given affluence
وَ الضَّعِيْفُ الَّذِيْ قَوَّيْتَهُ
And I am the weak that You have strengthened
وَ الذَّلِيْلُ الَّذِيْ اَعْزَزْتَهُ
And I am the lowly that You have given mighty
وَ السَّقِيْمُ الَّذِيْ شَفَيْتَهُ
And I am the ill that You have cured
وَ السَّاۤئِلُ الَّذِي اَعْطَيْتَهُ
And I am the beggar that You have donated
وَ الْمُذْنِبُ الَّذِيْ سَتَرْتَهُ
And I am the sinner that You have covered
وَ الْخَاطِئُ الَّذِيْ اَقَلْتَهُ
And I am the guilty that You have excused
وَ اَنَا الْقَلِيْلُ الَّذِيْ كَثَّرْتَهُ
And I am the valueless that You have evaluated
وَ الْمُسْتَضْعَفُ الَّذِيْ نَصَرْتَهُ
And I am the helpless that You have backed
وَ اَنَا الطَّرِيْدُ الَّذِيْ اٰوَيْتَهُ
And I am the expelled that You have boarded
اَنَا يَا رَبِّ الَّذِيْ لَمْ اَسْتَحْيِكَ فِى الْخَلَاۤءِ
I am, O my Lord, the one who has not felt ashamed of You in secrets
وَ لَمْ اُرَاقِبْكَ فِى الْمَلَاۤءِ
And the one who has not considered Your watching over him in the public
اَنَا صَاحِبُ الدَّوَاهِي الْعُظْمٰى
I am the committer of the grave transgressions
اَنَا الَّذِيْ عَلٰى سَيِّدِهِ اجْتَرٰى
I am the one who challenged his Master
اَنَا الَّذِيْ عَصَيْتُ جَبَّارَ السَّمَاۤءِ
I am the one who disobeyed the All-great of the heavens
اَنَا الَّذِي اعْطَيْتُ عَلٰى مَعَاصِىْ الْجَلِيْلِ الرُّشَا
I am the one who have given bribes violating the laws of the All-lofty One
اَنَا الَّذِيْ حِيْنَ بُشِّرْتُ بِهَا خَرَجْتُ اِلَيْهَا اَسْعٰى
I am the one who has been delighted for committing such sins
اَنَا الَّذِيْ اَمْهَلْتَنِيْ فَمَا ارْعَوَيْتُ
I am the one who, although You have respited, has not cared
وَ سَتَرْتَ عَلَيَّ فَمَا اسْتَحْيَيْتُ
I am the one whom, Although You have covered him, has not felt ashamed
وَ عَمِلْتُ بِالْمَعَاصِيْ فَتَعَدَّيْتُ
And who committed so many acts of disobedience that he has violated (all terms)
وَ اسْقَطْتَنِيْ مِنْ عَيْنِكَ فَمَا بَالَيْتُ
And who, although You have disregarded, has not minded
فَبِحِلْمِكَ اَمْهَلْتَنِيْ
So, out of Your forbearance have You given me respite
وَ بِسِتْرِكَ سَتَرْتَنِيْ حَتّٰى كَانَّكَ اَغْفَلْتَنِيْ
And You have concealed (my faults) with Your untouchable concealment as if You have been unaware with my acts
وَ مِنْ عُقُوْبَاتِ الْمَعَاصِيْ جَنَّبْتَنِيْ حَتّٰى كَانَّكَ اسْتَحْيَيْتَنِيْ
And You have not applied to me the punishments of committing acts of disobedience (to You) as if You are ashamed to face me
اِلٰہِیْ لَمْ اَعْصِكَ حِيْنَ عَصَيْتُكَ وَ اَنَا بِرُبُوْبِيَّتِكَ جَاحِدٌ
O my God, As I disobeyed You, I have never denied Your Lordship
وَ لَا بِاَمْرِكَ مُسْتَخِفٌّ
And I have never belittled Your ordains
وَ لَا لِعُقُوْبَتِكَ مُتَعَرِّضٌ
And I have never wished for exposing myself to Your chastisement
وَ لَا لِوَعِيْدِكَ مُتَهَاوِنٌ
And I have never disparaged Your threat
لٰكِنْ خَطِيْۤئَةٌ عَرَضَتْ وَ سَوَّلَتْ لِيْ نَفْسِيْ
Nevertheless, sins showed themselves desirable before me and my self commended to me
وَ غَلَبَنِيْ هَوَايَ
And my whim overwhelmed me
وَ اَعَانَنِيْ عَلَيْهَا شِقْوَتِيْ
And my impudence helped me accordingly
وَ غَرَّنِيْ سِتْرُكَ الْمُرْخٰى عَلَيَّ
And I have been deceived my Your covering that You have laid on me
فَقَدْ عَصَيْتُكَ وَ خَالَفْتُكَ بِجُهْدِيْ
So, I have exerted efforts in violating Your orders and disobeying You
فَالْاٰنَ مِنْ عَذَابِكَ مَنْ يَسْتَنْقِذُنِيْ
Now, who can ever save me from Your Chastisement
وَ مِنْ اَيْدِيْ الْخُصَمَاۤء غَدًا مِنْ يُخَلِّصُنِيْ
And, tomorrow, who can save me from the hands of my rivals?
وَ بِحَبْلِ مَنْ اَتَّصِلُ اِنْ اَنْتَ قَطَعْتَ حَبْلَكَ عَنِّيْ
And whose rope will I catch if You cut off the rope between You and me?
فَوَاسَوْاَتَا عَلٰى مَا اَحْصٰى كِتَابُكَ مِنْ عَمَلِي
Shame on me for my evil-doings that Your Book has recorded
الَّذِيْ لَوْلَا مَا اَرْجُوْ مِنْ كَرَمِكَ وَ سَعَةِ رَحْمَتِكَ وَ نَهْيِكَ اِيَّايَ
Had it not been for Your generosity, the breadth of Your mercy, and Your warning me against being desperate
عَنِ الْقُنُوْطِ لَقَنَطْتُ عِنْدَمَا اَتَذَكَّرُهَا
the matters that I hopefully depend on, I would have despaired whenever I remember my sins
يَا خَيْرَ مَنْ دَعَاهُ دَاعٍ
O the Greatest Besought One that has been ever besought
وَ اَفْضَلَ مَنْ رَجَاهُ رَاجٍ
And the Most Favorable Hoped One
اَللّٰہُمَّ بِذِمَّةِ الْاِسْلَامِ اَتَوَسَّلُ اِلَيْكَ
O Allāh: I beseech You by the liability of Islam
وَ بِحُرْمَةِ الْقُرْاٰنِ اَعْتَمِدُ اِلَيْكَ
And I rely upon You by the sanctity of the Qur’an
وَ بِحُبِّي النَّبِيَّ الْاُمِّيَّ الْقُرَشِيَّ الْهَاشِمِيَّ
And I hope for proximity to You by my love for the Prophet—the Ummi (inhabitant of Mecca), the Qurayshite, the Hashimite,
الْعَرَبِيَّ التَّهَامِيَّ الْمَكِّيَّ الْمَدَنِيَّ ارْجُوْ الزُّلْفَةَ لَدَيْكَ
the Arab, the Tuhamite, the Meccan, and the Madanite
فَلَا تُوْحِشِ اسْتِيْنَاسَ اِيْمَانِيْ
So, do not disturb my familiarity with faith
وَلَا تَجْعَلْ ثَوَابِيْ ثَوَابَ مَنْ عَبَدَ سِوَاكَ
And do not make my reward the same as that given to those who serve one other than You
فَاِنَّ قَوْمًا اٰمَنُوْا بِاَلْسِنَتِهِمْ لِيَحْقِنُوْا بِهِ دِمَاۤءَهُمْ
Certainly, some people outwardly declared the faith so that they could prevent their blood from being shed
فَاَدْرَكُوْا مَا اَمَّلُوْا
However, they attained their goals
وَ اِنَّا اٰمَنَّا بِكَ بِاَلْسِنَتِنَا وَ قُلُوْبِنَا لِتَعْفُوَ عَنَّا
Verily, we have believed in You in heart and tongue so that You may excuse us
فَادْرِكْنَا مَا اَمَّلْنَا
Hence, make us attain our goals
وَ ثَبِّتْ رَجَاۤئَكَ فِيْ صُدُوْرِنَا
And make firm our hoping for You in our hearts
وَ لَا تُزِغْ قُلُوْبَنَا بَعْدَ اِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا
And make not our hearts to deviate after You have guided us aright
وَهَبْ لَنَا مِنْ لَدُنْكَ رَحْمَةً
And grant us from You mercy;
اِنَّكَ اَنْتَ الْوَهّابُ
Surely, You are the most liberal Giver.
فَوَعِزَّتِكَ لَوِ انْتَهَرْتَنِيْ مَا بَرِحْتُ مِنْ بَابِكَ
By Your Majesty I swear, O my Lord, even if you chide me, I shall never leave Your Door
وَ لَا كَفَفْتُ عَنْ تَمَلُّقِكَ
and I shall never stop flattering You
لِمَا اُلْهِمَ قَلْبِيْ مِنَ الْمَعْرِفَةِ بِكَرَمِكَ وَ سَعَةِ رَحْمَتِكَ
This is because I have full acquaintance with Your indescribable generosity and bounty
اِلٰى مَنْ يَذْهَبُ الْعَبْدُ اِلَّا اِلٰى مَوْلَاهُ
To whom may a servant go save to his Lord?
وَ اِلٰى مَنْ يَلْتَجِئُ الْمَخْلُوْقُ اِلَّا اِلٰى خَالِقِهِ
And to whom may a mortal resort save to his Creator?
اِلٰہِیْ لَوْ قَرَنْتَنِيْ بِالْاَصْفَادِ
O my God: even if You tie me with chains
وَ مَنَعْتَنِيْ سَيْبَكَ مِنْ بَيْنِ الْاَشْهَادِ
And deprive me of the stream of Your bounties in the presence of people
وَ دَلَلْتَ عَلٰى فَضَايِحِيْ عُيُوْنَ الْعِبَادِ
And divulge all my scandalous acts before the eyes of all Your servants
وَ اَمَرْتَ بِيْ اِلَى النَّارِ
And order me to be entered Hell
وَ حُلْتَ بَيْنِيْ وَ بَيْنَ الْاَبْرَارِ
And prevent me from communicating the Pious ones
مَا قَطَعْتُ رَجَاۤئِـيْ مِنْكَ
(in spite of all that) I will never stop hoping for You
وَ مَا صَرَفْتُ تَامِيْلِيْ لِلْعَفْوِ عَنْكَ
And I will never stop expecting Your pardon
وَ لَا خَرَجَ حُبُّكَ مِنْ قَلْبِيْ
And Your love will never exit my heart
اَنَا لَا اَنْسٰى اَيَادِيَكَ عِنْدِيْ
I will never forget Your graces that I enjoy
وَ سَتْرَكَ عَلَيَّ فِيْ دَارِ الدُّنْيَا
And Your having concealed my defects in the worldly abode
سَيِّدِيْ اَخْرِجْ حُبَّ الدُّنْيَا مِنْ قَلْبِيْ
O my Master, (please) expel the love for the world out of my heart
وَاجْمَعْ بَيْني وَ بَيْنَ الْمُصْطَفٰى وَ اٰلِهِ
And join me with the Chosen One and his Family
خِيَرَتِكَ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ وَ خَاتَمِ النَّبِيِّيْنَ مُحَمَّدٍ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَ اٰلِهِ
The choicest of Your creatures and the seal of the Prophets—Muhammad, blessings of Allāh be on him and on his Family
وَ انْقُلْنِيْ اِلٰى دَرَجَةِ التَّوْبَةِ اِلَيْكَ
And move me to the rank of repentance with You
وَ اَعِنّي بِالْبُكَاۤءِ عَلٰى نَفْسِي، فَقَدْ اَفْنَيْتُ بِالتَّسْوِيْفِ وَالْاٰمَالِ عُمْرِيْ
And help me weep for myself after I have come upon the last of my age
وَ قَدْ نَزَلْتُ مَنْزِلَةَ الاٰيِسِيْنَ مِنْ خَيْرِيْ
Being in the manner of those who despair of any self-decency
فَمَنْ يَكُوْنُ اَسْوَءَ حَالًا مِنِّيْ
Who is then worse than I am
اِنْ اَنَا نُقِلْتُ عَلٰى مِثْلِ حَالِيْ اِلٰى قَبْرِيْ لَمْ اُمَهِّدْهُ لِرَقْدَتِيْ
When I will be taken to a grave that I have not paved for my long stay
وَ لَمْ اَفْرُشْهُ بِالْعَمَلِ الصّالِحِ لِضَجْعَتِيْ
And I have not furnished with righteous deed for my extended abode
وَ مَالِيْ لَا اَبْكِيْ وَ لَا اَدْرِيْ اِلٰى مَا يَكُوْنُ مَصِيْرِيْ
Why should I not weep while I do not know what my destiny will be?
وَ اَرٰى نَفْسِيْ تُخادِعُنِيْ
And while I notice that my self is cheating me
وَ اَيَّامِيْ تُخَاتِلُنِيْ
And my days are deceiving me
وَ قَدْ خَفَقَتْ عِنْدَ رَاسِيْ اَجْنِحَةُ الْمَوْتِ
And the wings of death are fluttering over my head
فَمَالِيْ لَا اَبْكِيْ
So, why should I not weep
اَبْكِيْ لِخُرُوْجِ نَفْسِيْ
I weep for my soul’s departing my body
اَبْكِيْ لِظُلْمَةِ قَبْرِيْ
I weep for the darkness of my grave
اَبْكِيْ لِضِيْقِ لَحَدِيْ
I weep for the narrowness of my vault
اَبْكي لِسُؤَالِ مُنْكَرٍ وَ نَكِيْرٍ اِيَّايَ
I weep for Munkar and Nakeer (the two angels interrogating in graves) being interrogating me
اَبْكي لِخُرُوْجِيْ مِنْ قَبْرِيْ عُرْيَانًا ذَلِيْلًا حَامِلًا ثِقْلِيْ عَلٰى ظَهْرِيْ
I weep for my coming out of my grave (on the Resurrection Day) naked, humiliated, carrying my burdens on my back
اَنْظُرُ مَرَّةً عَنْ يَمِيْنِيْ وَ اُخْرٰى عَنْ شِمَالِيْ
Distributing my sights to my right and my left
اِذِالْخَلَاۤئِقُ فِيْ شَانٍ غَيْرِ شَانِيْ
Behold! The creatures will each be engaged with matters other than mine
لِكُلِّ امْرِئٍ مِّنْهُمْ يَوْمَئِذٍ شَانٌ يُغْنِيْهِ
Every man that day will have concern enough to make him heedless of others
وُجُوْهٌ يَوْمَئِذٍ مُّسْفِرَةٌ ضَاحِكَةٌ مُّسْتَبْشِرَةٌ
Many faces on that day shall be bright, laughing, joyous
وَوُجُوْهٌ يَّوْمَئِذٍ عَلَيْهَا غَبَرَةٌ تَرْهَقُهَا قَتَرَةٌ وَ ذِلَّةٌ
And many faces on that day, on them shall be dust. Darkness, and humiliation, shall cover them
سَيِّدِيْ عَلَيْكَ مُعَوَّلِيْ وَ مُعْتَمَدِيْ
O my Master: on You I depend and rely
وَ رَجَاۤئِـيْ وَ تَوَكُّلِيْ
And in You I put my hope and faith
وَ بِرَحْمَتِكَ تَعَلُّقِيْ
And to Your mercy I hang
تُصِيْبُ بِرَحْمَتِكَ مَنْ تَشَاۤءُ
You direct Your mercy towards whomsoever You like
وَ تَهْدِيْ بِكَرَامَتِكَ مَنْ تُحِبُّ
And You guide, out of Your honoring, whomsoever You will
فَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ عَلٰى مَا نَقَّيْتَ مِنَ الشِّرْكِ قَلْبِيْ
So, all praise be to You for You have purified my heart from polytheism
وَ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ عَلٰى بَسْطِ لِسَانِيْ
And all praise be to You for You have made my tongue express utterly
اَفَبِلِسَانِيْ هٰذَا الْكَالِّ اَشْكُرُكَ
How can I praise You properly while my tongue is too short to do so?
اَمْ بِغايَةِ جَهْدِيْ فِيْ عَمَلِيْ اُرْضِيْكَ
And how can I please You while the extent of my efforts is too short to do so?
وَ مَا قَدْرُ لِسَانِيْ يَا رَبِّ في جَنْبِ شُكْرِكَ
What extent can my tongue reach if compared to the limitless extent of thanking You?
وَ مَا قَدْرُ عَمَلِيْ فِيْ جَنْبِ نِعَمِكَ وَ اِحْسانِكَ
And what amount can my efforts reach if compared to the limitless amount of Your graces and favors?
اِلٰہِیْ اِنَّ جُوْدَكَ بَسَطَ اَمَلِيْ
O my God! It is certainly Your benevolence that has given me hope
وَ شُكْرَكَ قَبِلَ عَمَلِيْ
And it is my thanks to You that have granted approval for my deeds
سَيِّدِيْ اِلَيْكَ رَغْبَتِيْ
O my Master: For You do I desire
وَ اِلَيْكَ رَهْبَتِيْ
And You do I fear
وَ اِلَيْكَ تَامِيْلِيْ
And to You do I look forward
وَ قَدْ سَاقَنِيْ اِلَيْكَ اَمَلِيْ
It is my hope that has driven me towards You
وَ عَلَيْكَ يَا وَاحِدِيْ عَكَفَتْ هِمَّتِيْ
And to You, O Unique, do I direct my determination
وَ فِيْمَا عِنْدَكَ انْبَسَطَتْ رَغْبَتِيْ
And towards that which You have are my desires directed
وَ لَكَ خالِصُ رَجَاۤئِـيْ وَ خَوْفِيْ
And for You is the ultimate of my hope and fear
وَ بِكَ اَنِسَتْ مَحَبَّتِيْ
And with You have I become familiar
وَ اِلَيْكَ اَلْقَيْتُ بِيَدِيْ
And to You have I submitted my hand
وَ بِحَبْلِ طَاعَتِكَ مَدَدْتُ رَهْبَتِيْ
And to the rope of the obedience to You have I extended my fears
يَا مَوْلَايَ بِذِكْرِكَ عَاشَ قَلْبِيْ
O my Master: only through mentioning You have my heart lived
وَ بِمُنَاجَاتِكَ بَرَّدْتُ اَلَمَ الْخَوْفِ عَنِّيْ
And only through my confidential conversations with You have I cooled the pains of my fear
فَيَا مَوْلَايَ وَ يَا مُؤَمَّلِيْ وَ يَا مُنْتَهٰى سُؤْلِيْ
So, O my Master; O my Trusty Patron; O the Ultimate Hope;
فَرِّقْ بَيْنِيْ وَ بَيْنَ ذَنْبِيَ الْمَانِعِ لِيْ مِنْ لُزُوْمِ طَاعَتِكَ
separate me from my transgressions which prevent me from adhering to the obedience to You
فَاِنَّمَا اَسْئَلُكَ لِقَدِيْمِ الرَّجَاۤءِ فِيْكَ
I only pray You on account of my eternal faith in You
وَ عَظِيْمِ الطَّمَعِ مِنْكَ الَّذِيْ اَوْجَبْتَهُ عَلٰى نَفْسِكَ مِنَ الرَّافَةِ وَ الرَّحْمَةِ
And my desire for Your mercy and kindness that You have made incumbent upon Yourself
فَالْاَمْرُ لَكَ، وَحْدَكَ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَكَ
So, the whole affair is Yours alone, there is no partner with You at all
وَ الْخَلْقُ كُلُّهُمْ عِيالُكَ وَ فِيْ قَبْضَتِكَ
All the creatures are dependent upon You and are in Your grip
وَ كُلُّ شَيْئٍ خاضِعٌ لَكَ
And all things are submissive to You
تَبارَكْتَ يَا رَبَّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ
Blessed be You, Lord of the worlds
اِلٰہِیْ اِرْحَمْنِيْ اِذَا انْقَطَعَتْ حُجَّتِيْ
O my God: have mercy on me when my argument is proven nil
وَ كَلَّ عَنْ جَوابِكَ لِسَانِيْ
And when my tongue can no longer find any answer
وَ طَاشَ عِنْدَ سُؤالِكَ اِيَّايَ لُبِّيْ
And when my mind scatters as soon as You begin to interrogate me
فَيَا عَظِيْمَ رَجَاۤئِـيْ لَا تُخَيِّبْنِيْ اِذََا اشْتَدَّتْ فَاقَتِيْ
So, O my great hope, do not forsake me when my need terribly increases
وَ لَا تَرُدَّنِيْ لِجَهْلِيْ
And do not reject me on account of my ignorance
وَ لَا تَمْنَعْنِيْ لِقِلَّةِ صَبْرِيْ
And do not stop conferring upon me on account of my lack of patience
اَعْطِنِيْ لِفَقْرِيْ
Grant me for I am poor
وَارْحَمْنِيْ لِضَعْفِيْ
And have mercy upon me for I am weak
سَيِّدِيْ عَلَيْكَ مُعْتَمَدِيْ وَ مُعَوَّلِيْ
O my Master: on You do I rely and lean
وَ رَجاۤئِـيْ وَ تَوَكُّلِيْ
And You are my hope and in You do I have faith
وَ بِرَحْمَتِكَ تَعَلُّقي
And to Your mercy do I attach myself
وَ بِفَنَاۤئِكَ اَحُطُّ رَحْلِيْ
And in Your courtyard do I dwell
وَ بِجُوْدِكَ اَقْصِدُ طَلِبَتِيْ
And out of Your benevolence do I declare my request
وَ بِكَرَمِكَ اَيْ رَبِّ اَسْتَفْتِحُ دُعَاۤئِـيْ
And with Your generosity, O my Lord, do I begin my prayers
وَ لَدَيْكَ اَرْجُوْ فَاقَتِيْ
And with You do I desire for meeting my needs
وَ بِغِنَاكَ اَجْبُرُ عَيْلَتِيْ
And through Your wealth do I settle my poverty
وَ تَحْتَ ظِلِّ عَفْوِكَ قِيَامِيْ
And under the shade of Your pardon do I stand
وَ اِلٰى جُوْدِكَ وَ كَرَمِكَ اَرْفَعُ بَصَرِيْ
And towards Your benevolence and generosity do I raise my sight
وَ اِلٰى مَعْرُوْفِكَ اُدِيْمُ نَظَرِيْ
I persistently look for Your favors
فَلَا تُحْرِقْنِيْ بِالنَّارِ وَ اَنْتَ مَوْضِعُ اَمَلي
So, do not let the flames of the Fire consume me while You are my ultimate hope
وَ لَا تُسْكِنِّىِ الْهاوِيَةَ فَاِنَّكَ قُرَّةُ عَيْنِيْ
And do not embed me in the deep black abyss while You are the delight of my eyes
يَا سَيِّدِي لَا تُكَذِّبْ ظَنِّيْ بِاِحْسَانِكَ وَ مَعْرُوْفِكَ فَاِنَّكَ ثِقَتِيْ
O my Master: do not thwart my idea about Your grace and favors, for in You I trust
وَ لَا تَحْرِمْنِيْ ثَوَابَكَ فَاِنَّكَ الْعَارِفُ بِفَقْرِيْ
And do not deprive me of Your rewards, for You best know my poverty
اِلٰہِیْ اِنْ كَانَ قَدْ دَنَا اَجَلِيْ وَ لَمْ يُقَرِّبْنِيْ مِنْكَ عَمَلِيْ
O my God: if my death is drawing near while my deeds have not yet drawn me near You,
فَقَدْ جَعَلْتُ الْاِعْتِرَافَ اِلَيْكَ بِذَنْبِيْ وَسَاۤئِلَ عِلَلِيْ
then let my confession of having committed sins be my means of justification
اِلٰہِیْ اِنْ عَفَوْتَ فَمَنْ اَوْلٰى مِنْكَ بِالْعَفْوِ
O my God: if You forgive, then who is worthier than You in forgiveness?
وَ اِنْ عَذَّبْتَ فَمَنْ اَعْدَلُ مِنْكَ فِي الْحُكْمِ
And if You punish, then who is fairer than You in judgment?
اِرْحَمْ فِيْ هٰذِهِ الدُّنْيَا غُرْبَتِيْ
Have mercy on my misery in this world
وَ عِنْدَ الْمَوْتِ كُرْبَتِيْ
And on my grief at the time of death
وَ فِي الْقَبْرِ وَحْدَتِيْ
And on my loneliness in the grave
وَ فِيْ اللَّحْدِ وَحْشَتِيْ
And on my lonesomeness in the underground hole
وَ اِذَا نُشِرْتُ لِلْحِسَابِ بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ ذُلَّ مَوْقِفِيْ
And on my humiliating situation when I shall be resurrected for account before You
وَاغْفِرْ لِيْ مَا خَفِيَ عَلَى الْاٰدَمِيِّيْنَ مِنْ عَمَلِيْ
And forgive my deeds that have been concealed from the other human beings
وَ اَدِمْ لِيْ مَا بِهِ سَتَرْتَنِيْ
And make permanent for me that on account of which You have covered my faults
وَ ارْحَمْنِيْ سَرِيْعًا عَلَى الْفِرَاشِ تُقَلِّبُنِيْ اَيْدِيْ اَحِبَّتِيْ
And have mercy on me when I am thrown on the death bed turned over at the hands of my dear ones
وَ تَفَضَّلْ عَلَيَّ مَمْدُوْدًا عَلَى الْمُغْتَسَلِ يُقَلِّبُنِيْ صَالِحُ جِيْرَتِيْ
And do a favor to me when I am laid on the table of the dead bathroom turned over at the hands of my righteous neighbors
وَ تَحَنَّنْ عَلَيَّ مَحْموُلًا قَدْ تَنَاوَلَ الْاَقْرِبَاۤءُ اَطْرَافَ جَنَازَتِيْ
And act kindly to me when I am carried while my relatives hold the edges of my coffin
وَ جُدْ عَلَيَّ مَنْقُوْلًا قَدْ نَزَلْتُ بِكَ وَحِيْدًا فِيْ حُفْرَتِيْ
And be generous to me, when I am carried, alone, to my hole.
وَ ارْحَمْ في ذٰلِكَ الْبَيْتِ الْجَدِيْدِ غُرْبَتِيْ حَتّٰى لَا اَسْتَانِسَ بِغَيْرِكَ
And have mercy on my loneliness in that (new) dwelling so that I will not feel at ease with anyone other than You
يَا سَيِّدِيْ اِنْ وَكَلْتَنِيْ اِلٰى نَفْسِيْ هَلَكْتُ
O my Master; if you leave me for myself, I will certainly perish
سَيِّدِيْ فَبِمَنْ اَسْتَغِيْثُ اِنْ لَمْ تُقِلْنِيْ عَثَرْتِيْ
O my Master; to whom will I resort if you do not overlook my slips?
فَاِلىٰ مَنْ اَفْزَعُ اِنْ فَقَدْتُ عِنَايَتَكَ فِيْ ضَجْعَتِيْ
And to whom will I run for help if I miss Your care for me in my stay (in grave)?
وَ اِلٰى مَنْ اَلْتَجِئُ اِنْ لَمْ تُنَفِّسْ كُرْبَتِيْ
And to whom will I refer if You do not relieve my grief?
سَيِّدِيْ مَنْ لِيْ
O my Master! Who will be with me?
وَ مَنْ يَرْحَمُنِيْ اِنْ لَمْ تَرْحَمْنِيْ
And who will have mercy on me if You do not?
وَ فَضْلَ مَنْ اُؤَمِّلُ اِنْ عَدِمْتُ فَضْلَكَ يَوْمَ فَاقَتِيْ
And whose favor will I expect if I miss Your favors on the day of my neediness?
وَ اِلٰى مَنِ الْفِرَارُ مِنَ الذُّنُوْبِ اِذََا انْقَضٰى اَجَلِيْ
And to whom will I flee from my sins when my deadline comes?
سَيِّدِيْ لَا تُعَذِّبْنِيْ وَ اَنَا اَرْجُوْكَ
O my Master; do not punish me while I please You hopefully
اِلٰہِیْ حَقِّقْ رَجَاۤئِـيْ
O my God, (please do) give success to my expectations
وَ اٰمِنْ خَوْفِيْ
And dispel my fear
فَاِنَّ كَثْرَةَ ذُنُوْبِيْ لَا اَرْجُوْ فِيْهَا اِلَّا عَفْوَكَ
As for my numerous sins, I hope for nothing other than Your pardon
سَيِّدِيْ اَنَا اَسْئَلُكَ مَا لَا اَسْتَحِقُّ
O my Master, I am asking You for things that I do not deserve
وَ اَنْتَ اَهْلُ التَّقْوٰى وَ اَهْلُ الْمَغْفِرَةِ
And You are verily the Lord of righteousness and the Lord of forgiveness
فَاغْفِرْ لِيْ وَ اَلْبِسْنِيْ مِنْ نَظَرِكَ ثَوْبًا يُغَطِّيْ عَلَيَّ التَّبِعَاتِ
So, forgive me and dress me, out of Your relief, a garment covering all my defects
وَ تَغْفِرُهَا لِيْ وَ لَا اُطَالَبُ بِهَا
And forgive them for me so that I will not responsible for them
اِنَّكَ ذُوْ مَنٍّ قَدِيْمٍ
Verily, You are the Lord of eternal favoring
وَ صَفْحٍ عَظِيْمٍ
And the Lord of great pardon
وَ تَجَاوُزٍ كَرِيْمٍ
And the Lord of liberal exoneration
اِلٰہِیْ اَنْتَ الَّذِيْ تُفيضُ سَيْبَكَ عَلٰى مَنْ لَّا يَسْئَلُكَ وَ عَلَى الْجَاحِدِيْنَ بِرُبُوْبِيَّتِكَ
O my God, You make Your flowing graces reach those who never pray You and those who deny Your Lordship
فَكَيْفَ سَيِّدِيْ بِمَنْ سَئَلَكَ وَ اَيْقَنَ اَنَّ الْخَلْقَ لَكَ وَ الْاَمْرَ اِلَيْكَ
So, O my Master, what should You do to those whom pray You and believe undoubtedly that You manage all creation and all affairs!
تَبَارَكْتَ وَ تَعَالَيْتَ يَا رَبَّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ
Blessed by You and Exalted be You, O the Lord of the worlds
سَيِّدِيْ عَبْدُكَ بِبَابِكَ اَقَامَتْهُ الْخَصَاصَةُ بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ
O my Master, I, Your servant standing at Your door owing to neediness, am knocking at it suppliantly
يَقْرَعُ بَابَ اِحْسَانِكَ بِدُعَاۤئِهِ
am knocking at it suppliantly
فَلَا تُعْرِضْ بِوَجْهِكَ الْكَرِيْمِ عَنِّيْ
So, do not turn Your generous Face away from me
وَاقْبَلْ مِنِّيْ مَا اَقُوْلُ فَقَدْ دَعَوْتُ بِهٰذَا الدُّعَاۤءِ
And (do) accept that which I utter, for I have prayed using this supplication
وَ اَنَا اَرْجُوْ اَنْ لَّا تَرُدَّنِيْ مَعْرِفَةً مِنِّيْ بِرَافَتِكَ وَ رَحْمَتِكَ
Hoping that You will not reject me since I have full awareness with Your kindness and mercifulness
اِلٰہِیْ اَنْتَ الَّذِيْ لَا يُحْفِيْكَ سَاۤئِلٌ
O my God: It is You Whom is never disturbed by any suppliant
وَ لَا يَنْقُصُكَ نَاۤئِلٌ
And Whose kingdom is never decreased owing to donations
اَنْتَ كَمَا تَقُوْلُ وَ فَوْقَ مَا نَقُوْلُ
You are as exactly as You describe Yourself and is above all that which we say
اَللّٰہُمَّ اِنِّيْ اَسْئَلُكَ صَبْرًا جَمِيْلًا
O Allāh: I beseech You for comely patience
وَ فَرَجًا قَرِيْبًا
And for immediate relief
وَ قَوْلًا صَادِقًا
And for truthful wording
وَ اَجْرًا عَظِيْمًا
And for splendid reward
اَسْئَلُكَ يَا رَبِّ مِنَ الْخَيْرِ كُلِّهِ مَا عَلِمْتُ مِنْهُ وَ مَا لَمْ اَعْلَمْ
I pray You, O Lord, for all goodness, be it known by me or unknown
اَسْئَلُكَ اللّٰہُمَّ مِنْ خَيْرِ مَا سَئَلَكَ مِنْهُ عِبَادُكَ الصَّالِحُوْنَ
I pray You, O Allāh, for the goodness that Your righteous servants have besought from You
يَا خَيْرَ مَنْ سُئِلَ
O the All-excellent One that is asked
وَ اَجْوَدَ مَنْ اَعْطٰى
And the All-benevolent of those who may give
اَعْطِني سُؤْلِيْ فِيْ نَفْسِيْ وَ اَهْلِيْ
(Please do) respond to my request as regards myself and my family
وَ وَالِدَيَّ وَ وَلَدِيْ
And my parents and my children
وَ اَهْلِ حُزَانَتِيْ وَ اِخْوَانِيْ فِيْكَ
And my comrades and my brothers-in-faith
وَ اَرْغِدْ عَيْشِيْ
And (do) bless my living
وَ اَظْهِرْ مُرُوَّتِيْ
And (do) manifest my integrity
وَ اَصْلِحْ جَمِيْعَ اَحْوَالِيْ
And (do) set aright all my affairs
وَاجْعَلْنِيْ مِمَّنْ اَطَلْتَ عُمْرَهُ
And include me with those whom You decide to live long
وَ حَسَّنْتَ عَمَلَهُ
And those whose deeds are righteous
وَ اَتْمَمْتَ عَلَيْهِ نِعْمَتَكَ وَ رَضِيْتَ عَنْهُ
And those for whom You have perfected Your favours and those with whom You are pleased
وَ اَحْيَيْتَهُ حَيٰوةً طَيِّبَةً فِيْ اَدْوَمِ السُّرُوْرِ
And those whom You have granted comfortable life with permanent pleasure
وَ اَسْبَغِ الْكَرَامَةِ، وَ اَتَمِّ الْعَيْشِ
And with reputable honor and perfect contentment
اِنَّكَ تَفْعَلُ مَا تَشَاۤءُ
Verily, You do whatever You will
