His Supplication Pleading and Abasement

دُعَاؤُهُ فِي الرَّهْبَةِ

إلهِي أَحْمَـدُكَ ـ وَأَنْتَ لِلْحَمْدِ أَهْلٌ ـ
My God, I praise Thee, - and Thou art worthy of praise -
عَلَى حُسْنِ صَنِيعِكَ إلَيَّ، وَسُبُـوغِ نَعْمَآئِكَ عَلَيَّ،
for Thy benefaction toward me, the lavishness of Thy favours toward me,
وَجَزِيْلِ عَطَآئِكَ عِنْدِي،
and Thy plentiful bestowal upon me,
وَعَلَى ما فَضَّلْتَنِي مِنْ رَحْمَتِكَ،
and for showing bounty toward me through Thy mercy
وَأَسْبَغْتَ عَلَيَّ مِنْ نِعْمَتِكَ،
and lavishing Thy favour upon me.
فَقَدِ اصْطَنَعْتَ عِنْدِي ما يَعْجِزُ عَنُهُ شُكْرِي، وَلَوْلاَ إحْسَانُكَ، إلَيَّ
Thou hast done well toward me and I am incapable of thanking Thee. Were it not for Thy beneficence toward me
وَسُبُوغُ نَعْمَآئِـكَ عَلَيَّ
and the lavishness of Thy favours upon me,
مَا بَلَغْتُ إحْرازَ حَظِّي، وَلاَ إصْلاَحَ نَفْسِي،
I would not have reached the taking of my share nor would my soul have been set right,
وَلكِنَّكَ ابْتَدَأْتَنِي بِالإحْسَانِ،
but Thou began with beneficence toward me,
وَرَزَقْتَنِي فِي أُمُورِي كُلِّهَا الْكِفَايَةَ،
provided me sufficiency in all my affairs,
وَصَرَفْتَ عَنِّي جَهْدَ الْبَلاءِ،
turned away from me the toil of affliction,
وَمَنَعْتَ مِنِّي مَحْذُورَ الْقَضَآءِ
and held back from me the feared decree.
إلهِي فَكَمْ مِنْ بَلاء جَاهِد قَدْ صَرَفْتَ عَنِّي،
My God, how many a toilsome affliction which Thou hast turned away from me!
وَكَمْ مِنْ نِعْمَة سَابِغَة أَقْرَرْتَ بِهَا عَيْنِي،
How many a lavish favour with which Thou hast gladdened my eye!
وَكَمْ مِنْ صَنِيعَة كَرِيمَة لَكَ عِنْدِي.
How many a generous benefaction of Thine which is present with me!
أَنْتَ الَّذِي أَجَبْتَ عِنْدَ الاضْطِرَارِ دَعْوَتِي،
It is Thou who responded to my supplication at the time of distress,
وَأَقَلْتَ عِنْدَ الْعِثَارِ زَلَّتِي،
released me from my slip in stumbling,
وَأَخَذْتَ لِي مِنَ الاَعْدَآءِ بِظُلاَمَتِي.
and took my enemies to task for doing wrong to me.
إلهِي مَا وَجَدْتُكَ بَخِيلاً حِينَ سَأَلْتُكَ،
My God, I did not find Thee a miser when I asked of Thee
وَلاَ مُنْقَبِضاً حِينَ أَرَدْتُكَ،
nor a withholder when I desired from Thee.
بل وَجَدْتُكَ لِدُعَآئِي سَامِعاً، وَلِمَطَالِبِي مُعْطِياً،
No, 1 found Thee a hearer of my supplication and a bestower of my requests;
وَوَجَدْتُ نُعْمَاكَ عَلَيَّ سَابِغَةً،
I found Thy favours toward me
فِي كُلِّ شَأْن مِنْ شَأْنِي، وَكُلِّ زَمَان مِنْ زَمَانِي،
lavish in my every situation and in my every time.
فَأَنْتَ عِنْدِي مَحْمُودٌ، وَصَنِيعُكَ لَدَيَّ مَبْرُورٌ،
So Thou art praised by me and Thy benefaction honoured.
تَحْمَدُكَ نَفْسِي وَلِسَانِيْ وَعَقْلِي حَمْداً يَبْلُغُ الوَفَآءَ وَحَقِيقَةَ الشُّكْرِ،
My soul, my tongue, and my intelligence praise Thee, a praise that reaches fulfilment and the reality of thanksgiving,
حَمْداً يَكُونُ مَبْلَغَ رِضَاكَ عَنِّي،
a praise that attains to Thy good pleasure with me -
فَنَجِّنِي مِنْ سَخَطِكَ يَا كَهْفِي حِينَ تُعْيينِي الْمَذَاهِبُ،
so deliver me from Thy displeasure! O my cave when the ways thwart me!
وَيَا مُقيلِي عَثْرَتِي،
O He who releases me from my stumble!
فَلَوْلاَ سَتْرُكَ عَوْرَتِي لَكُنْتُ مِنَ الْمَفْضُوحِينَ،
Were it not for Thy covering my shameful defects, I would be one of the disgraced.
وَيَا مُؤَيِّدِي بِالنَّصْرِ،
O my confirmer through help!
فَلَوْلاَ نَصْرُكَ إيَّايَ لَكُنْتُ مِنَ الْمَغْلُوبِينَ،
Were it not for Thy helping me, I would be one of the overcome!
وَيَا مَنْ وَضَعَتْ لَهُ الْمُلُوكُ نِيرَ الْمَذَلَّةِ عَلى أَعْنَاقِهَا،
O He before whom kings place the yoke of lowliness around their necks,
فَهُمْ مِنْ سَطَواتِهِ خَائِفُونَ، وَيَا أَهْلَ التَّقْوَى،
fearing His penalties! O worthy of reverent fear!
وَيَا مَنْ لَهُ الأَسْمَآءُ الْحُسْنى أَسْأَلُكَ أَنْ تَعْفُوَ عَنِّي،
O He to whom belong the names most beautiful! I ask Thee to pardon me
وَتَغْفِرَ لِي فَلَسْتُ، بَرِيئاً فَأَعْتَذِرَ،
and to forgive me, for I am not innocent that I should offer excuses,
وَلاَ بِذِي قُوَّة فَأَنْتَصِرَ،
nor a possessor of strength that I should gain victory,
وَلاَ مَفَرَّ لِي فَأَفِرَّ. وَأَسْتَقِيْلُكَ عَثَراتِي،
nor have I any place of flight that I should flee! I ask Thee to release me from my stumbles,
وَأَتَنَصَّلُ إلَيْكَ مِنْ ذُنُوبِي الَّتِي قَدْ أَوْبَقَتْنِي،
and before Thee I disavow my sins, which have laid me waste,
وَأَحَاطَتْ بِي فَأَهْلَكَتْنِي،
encompassed me, and destroyed me!
مِنْهَا فَرَرْتُ إلَيْكَ رَبِّ تَائِباً،
I flee from them to Thee, my Lord, turning repentantly,
فَتُبْ عَلَيَّ مُتَعَوِّذاً، فَأَعِذْنِي مُسْتَجِيراً،
so turn toward me, seeking refuge, so grant me refuge, asking sanctuary,
فَلاَ تَخْذُلْنِي سَآئِلاً، فَلاَ تَحْرِمْنِي مُعْتَصِماً،
so abandon me not, requesting, so deprive me not, holding fast,
فَلاَ تُسْلِمْنِي دَاعِياً، فَلاَ تَرُدَّنِي خَائِباً،
so leave me not, supplicating, so send me not back disappointed!
دَعوْتُكَ يَارَبِّ مِسْكِيناً، مُسْتَكِيناً،
I have supplicated Thee, my Lord, as one miserable, abased,
مُشْفِقاً، خَائِفاً، وَجِلاً، فَقِيراً، مُضْطَرّاً، إلَيْكَ
apprehensive, fearful, quaking, poor, driven to have recourse to Thee!
أَشْكُو إلَيْكَ يَا إلهِي ضَعْفَ نَفْسِي
I complain to Thee, my God, of my soul - which is too weak
عَنِ الْمُسَارَعَةِ فِيمَا وَعَدْتَهُ أَوْلِيَآءَكَ،
to hurry to that which Thou hast promised Thy friends
وَالْمُجَانَبَةِ عَمَّا حَذَّرْتَهُ أَعْدَآءَكَ،
or to avoid that against which Thou hast cautioned Thy enemies -
وَكَثْرَةَ هُمُومِي وَوَسْوَسَةَ نَفْسِي .
and of the multitude of my concerns, and of my soul's confusing thoughts.
إلهِي لَمْ تَفْضَحْنِي بِسَرِيرَتِي،
My God, Thou hast not disgraced me through my secret thoughts
وَلَمْ تُهْلِكْنِي بِجَرِيرَتِي، أَدْعُوكَ فَتُجِيبُنِي
or destroyed me because of my misdeeds! I call upon Thee, and Thou respondest,
وَإنْ كُنْتُ بَطِيئاً حِيْنَ تَدْعُونِي.
even if I am slow when Thou callest upon me.
وَأَسْأَلُكَ كُلَّمَا شِئْتُ مِنْ حَوَائِجِي،
I ask Thee everything I want of my needs,
وَحَيْثُ مَا كُنْتُ وَضَعْتُ عِنْدَكَ سِرِّي،
and I deposit with Thee my secret wherever I may be.
فَلاَ أَدْعُو سِوَاكَ، وَلاَ أَرْجُو غَيْرَكَ،
I supplicate no one besides Thee, and I hope for no one other than Thee.
لَبَّيْكَ لَبَّيْكَ، تَسْمَعُ مَنْ شَكَا إلَيْكَ،
At Thy service! At Thy service! Thou hearest him who complains to Thee!
وَتَلْقى مَنْ تَوَكَّلَ عَلَيْكَ،
Thou receivest him who has confidence in Thee!
وَتُخَلِّصُ مَنِ اعْتَصَمَ بِكَ،
Thou savest him who holds fast to Thee!
وَتُفَرِّجُ عَمَّنْ لاذَ بِكَ.
Thou givest relief to him who seeks shelter in Thee!
إلهِي فَلاَ تَحْرِمْنِي خَيْرَ الآخِرَةِ وَالأُولى لِقِلَّةِ شُكْرِي،
My God, so deprive me not of the good of the last world and the first because of the paucity of my thanksgiving
وَاغْفِرْ لِي مَا تَعْلَمُ مِنْ ذُنُوبِي،
and forgive me the sins of mine which Thou knowest!
إنْ تُعَذِّبْ فَأَنَا الظَّالِمُ، الْمُفَرِّطُ،
If Thou chastisest, I am the wrongdoer, the neglecter,
الْمُضَيِّعُ، الاثِمُ، الْمُقَصِّرُ، الْمُضْجِعُ،
the negligent, the sinner, the derelict, the sluggard,
الُمُغْفِلُ حَظَّ نَفْسِي،
the heedless of the share of my soul!
وَإنْ تَغْفِرْ فَأَنْتَ أَرْحَمُ الرَّاحِمِينَ.
And if Thou forgivest - Thou art the Most Merciful of the merciful!
