His Supplication in Abasing himself before Allah

دُعَاؤُهُ فِي الْإِلْحَاحِ

رَبِّ أَفْحَمَتْنِيْ ذُنُوبِي، وَانْقَطَعَتْ مَقَالَتِي،
My Lord, my sins have silenced me, and my words have been cut off.
فَلاَ حُجَّةَ لِي، فَأَنَا الأَسِيـرُ بِبَلِيَّتِي،
I have no argument, for I am the prisoner of my own affliction,
الْمُـرْتَهَنُ بِعَمَلِي، الْمُتَرَدِّدُ فِي خَطِيئَتِي،
the hostage to my works, the frequenter of my own offense,
الْمُتَحَيِّرُ عَنْ قَصْدِي، الْمُنْقَطَعُ بِي،
the confused in my intended way, the thwarted.
قَدْ أَوْقَفْتُ نَفْسِي مَوْقِفَ الأَذِلاَّءِ الْمُذْنِبِينَ،
I have brought myself to a halt in the halting place of the abased sinners,
مَوْقِفَ الأَشْقِيآءِ الْمُتَجَرِّينَ عَلَيْكَ، الْمُسْتَخِفِّينَ بِوَعْدِكَ.
the halting place of the wretched and insolent, those who think lightly of Thy promise.
سُبْحَانَكَ! أَيَّ جُرْأَة اجْتَرَأْتُ عَلَيْكَ؟
Glory be to Thee! What insolence I have insolently shown toward Thee!
وَأَيَّ تَغْرِير غَرَّرْتُ بِنَفْسِي
What delusion with which I have deluded myself!
مَوْلاَيَ إرْحَمْ كَبْوَتِيْ لِحُرِّ وَجْهِي،
My Master, have mercy on my falling flat on my face
وَزَلَّةَ قَدَمِي، وَعُدْ بِحِلْمِكَ عَلَى جَهْلِي،
the slipping of my foot, grant me my ignorance through Thy clemency,
وَبِإحْسَانِكَ عَلَى إسَآءَتِي، فَأَنَا الْمُقِرُّ بِذَنْبِي،
and my evildoing through Thy beneficence, for I admit my sin
الْمُعْتَرِفُ بِخَطِيئَتِي، وَهَذِهِ يَدِيْ وَنَاصِيَتِي،
and I confess my offense: Here are my hand and my forelock!
أَسْتَكِينُ بِالْقَـوْدِ مِنْ نَفْسِي .
I am resigned to retaliation against my soul!
إرْحَمْ شَيْبَتِي، وَنَفَادَ أَيَّامِي،
Have mercy on my white hair, the depletion of my days,
وَاقْتِرَابَ أَجَلِي، وَضَعْفِي،
the nearing of my term, my frailty,
وَمَسْكَنَتِي، وَقِلَّةَ حِيلَتِي.
my misery, and the paucity of my stratagems!
مَوْلاَيَ وَارْحَمْنِي إذَا انْقَطَعَ مِنَ الدُّنْيَا أَثَرِي،
My Master, and have mercy upon me when my trace is cut off from this world,
وَامَّحى مِنَ الْمَخْلُوقِينَ ذِكْرِي،
my mention is effaced among the creatures,
وَكُنْتُ فِي الْمَنْسِيِّينَ، كَمَنْ قَدْ نُسِيَ.
and I join the forgotten, like the forgotten ones!
مَوْلاَيَ وَارْحَمْنِي عِنْدَ تَغَيُّرِ صُورَتِي
My Master, and have mercy upon me at the change of my form and state
وَحَالِي إذَا بَلِيَ جِسْمِي، وَتَفَرَّقَتْ أَعْضَائِي،
when my body decays, my limbs are scattered,
وَتَقَطَّعَتْ أَوْصَالِيْ، يا غَفْلَتِي عَمَّا يُرَادُ بِيَ.
and my joints are dismembered! O my heedlessness toward what was wanted from me!
مَوْلاَيَ وَارْحَمْنِي فِي حَشْرِي وَنَشْرِي،
My Master, have mercy upon me at my mustering and uprising
وَاجْعَل فِي ذَلِكَ الْيَومِ مَعَ أَوْلِيَآئِكَ مَوْقِفِي،
and on that day, appoint my standing place with Thy friends,
وَفِي أَحِبَّائِكَ مَصْدَرِي،
my place of emergence with Thy beloveds,
وَفِي جِوَارِكَ مَسْكَنِي يَا رَبَّ الْعَالَمِينَ.
and my dwelling in Thy neighbourhood! O Lord of the worlds!
