His Supplication when he was Afflicted or saw Someone Afflicted with the Disgrace of Sin

دُعَاؤُهُ إِذَا ابْتُلِيَ أَوْ رَأَى مُبْتَلًى بِفَضِيحَةٍ بِذَنْبٍ

أَللَّهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ عَلَى سِتْرِكَ بَعْدَ عِلْمِكَ ،
O God, to Thee belongs praise for Thy covering over after Thy knowledge
وَمُعَافَاتِكَ بَعْدَ خُبْرِكَ،
and Thy pardon after Thy awareness!
فَكُلُّنَا قَدِ اقْتَرَفَ الْعَائِبَةَ فَلَمْ تَشْهَرْهُ ،
Each of us has committed faults, but Thou hast not made him notorious,
وَارْتَكَبَ الْفَاحِشَةَ فَلَم تَفْضَحْهُ
done indecencies, but Thou hast not disgraced him,
وَتَسَتَّـرَ بِالْمَسَاوِي فَلَمْ تَدْلُلْ عَلَيْهِ،
and covered over evil deeds, but Thou hast not pointed to him.
كَمْ نهْي لَكَ قَدْ أَتَيْنَاهُ،
How many are Thy prohibited acts which we have performed,
وَأَمْر قَدْ وَقَفْتَنَا عَلَيْهِ فَتَعَدَّيْنَاهُ،
Thy commandments of which Thou hast told us which we have transgressed,
وَسَيِّئَة اكْتَسَبْنَاهَا، وَخَطِيئَة ارْتَكَبْنَـاهَا،
the evil deeds which we have earned, the offenses which we have committed!
كُنْتَ الْمُطَّلِعَ عَلَيْهَا دُونَ النَّاظِرِينَ،
Thou seest them to the exclusion of all observers;
وَالْقَادِرَ عَلَى إعْلاَنِهَا فَوْقَ الْقَادِرِينَ،
Thou hast the power to make them public above all the powerful!
كَانَتْ عَافِيَتُكَ لَنَا حِجَاباً دُونَ أَبْصَارِهِمْ،
By giving us safety Thou hast veiled their eyes
وَرَدْماً دُونَ أَسْمَاعِهِمْ،
and stopped their ears.
فَاجْعَلْ مَا ستَرْتَ مِنَ الْعَوْرَةِ،
So make the shameful things Thou hast covered over
وَأَخْفَيْتَ مِنَ الدَّخِيلَةِ وَاعِظاً لَنَا،
and the inward reality Thou hast concealed our admonisher,
وَزَاجِراً عَنْ سُوْءِ الْخُلْقِ وَاقْتِرَافِ الخَطِيئَـةِ،
a restrainer upon bad character traits and committing offenses,
وَسَعْياً إلَى التَّوْبَةِ الْمَاحِيَةِ وَالطَّرِيْقِ الْمَحْمُودَةِ،
and a striving toward the repentance that erases [sins] and the praiseworthy path!
وقَرِّبِ الْوَقْتَ فِيهِ ،
Bring the time of striving near
وَلاَ تَسُمْنَا الْغَفْلَةَ عَنْكَ
and visit us not with heedlessness of Thee!
إنَّا إلَيْكَ رَاغِبُونَ ، وَمِنَ الذُّنُوبِ تَائِبُونَ.
Surely we are Thy beseechers, the repenters of sins.
وَصَلِّ عَلَى خِيَرَتِكَ اللَّهُمَّ مِنْ خَلْقِكَ
And bless Thy chosen, O God, from Thy creation,
مُحَمَّد وَعِتْرَتِهِ الصِّفْـوَةِ مِنْ بَرِيَّتِـكَ الطَّاهِرِينَ ،
Muhammad and his descendants, the friends selected from among Thy creatures, the pure,
وَاجْعَلْنَا لَهُمْ سَامِعِينَ وَمُطِيعِينَ كَمَا أَمَرْتَ .
and make us listeners to them and obeyers, as Thou hast commanded!
