His Supplication in Fleeing to God for Protection

دُعَاؤُهُ فِي التَّفَزُّعِ الى اللهِ

اللَهُمَّ إنِّي أَخْلَصْتُ بِانْقِطَاعِي إلَيْكَ،
I showed sincerity by cutting myself off from everything but Thee.
وَأَقْبَلْتُ بِكُلِّي عَلَيْـكَ،
I approached Thee with my whole self.
وَصَـرَفْتُ وَجْهِي عَمَّنْ يَحْتَاجُ إلَى رِفْدِكَ،
I averted my face from everyone who needs Thy support.
وَقَلَبْتُ مَسْأَلَتِي عَمَّنْ لَمْ يَسْتَغْنِ عَنْ فَضْلِكَ،
I ceased to ask from any who cannot do without Thy bounty.
وَرَأَيْتُ أَنَّ طَلَبَ الْمُحْتَاجِ إلَى الْمُحْتَاجِ
I saw that the needy who seeks from the needy
سَفَهٌ مِنْ رَأيِهِ وَضَلَّةٌ مِنْ عَقْلِهِ،
is foolish in his opinion, and misguided in his intellect.
فَكَمْ قَدْ رَأَيْتُ يَـا إلهِيْ
How many people have I seen, my God,
مِنْ أُناس طَلَبُوا الْعِزَّ بِغَيْرِكَ فَذَلُّوا،
who sought exaltation through other than Thee and were abased,
وَرَامُوا الثَّرْوَةَ مِنْ سِوَاكَ فَافْتَقَرُوا،
who wanted wealth from someone else and became poor,
وَحَاوَلُوا الارْتِفَاعَ فَاتَّضَعُوا،
who tried to rise high and fell down low!
فَصحَّ بِمُعَايَنَةِ أَمْثَالِهِمْ حَازِمٌ
Observing the likes of them corrects a prudent man;
وَفَّقَهُ اعْتِبَارُهُ
his taking heed gives him success;
وَأَرْشَدَهُ إلَى طَرِيقِ صَوَابِهِ بِاخْتِبَارِهِ
his choosing the best guides him to the path of right.
فَأَنْتَ يَا مَوْلايَ
So Thou, my Master,
دُونَ كُلِّ مَسْؤُول مَوْضِعُ مَسْأَلَتِي
art the object of my asking to the exclusion of all those who are asked
وَدُونَ كُلِّ مَطْلُوب إلَيْهِ وَلِيُّ حَاجَتِي.
and the patron of my need to the exclusion of all those from whom requests are made.
الْمَخْصُوصُ قَبْلَ كُلِّ مَدْعُوٍّ بِدَعْوَتِي
Thou art singled out for my call before all who are called;
لاَ يَشْرَكُكَ أَحَدٌ فِي رَجَائِي،
none is associated with Thee in my hope,
وَلاَ يَتَّفِقُ أَحَدٌ مَعَكَ فِي دُعَائِي،
none comes along with Thee in my supplication,
وَلاَ يَنْظِمُهُ وَإيَّاكَ نِدَائِي
nor does any join with Thee within it, for to Thee is my appeal.
لَكَ يَا إلهِي وَحْدَانِيَّةُ الْعَدَدِ،
To Thee, my God, belongs the Unity of number,
وَمَلَكَةُ الْقُدْرَةِ الصَّمَدِ،
the property of eternal power,
وَفَضِيلَةُ الْحَوْلِ وَالْقُوَّةِ،
the excellence of force and strength,
وَدَرَجَةُ الْعُلُوِّ وَالرِّفْعَةِ
the degree of sublimity and elevation.
وَمَنْ سِوَاكَ مَرْحُومٌ فِي عُمْرِهِ،
Everyone other than Thee is the object of compassion in his lifetime,
مَغْلُوبٌ عَلَى أَمْرِهِ، مَقْهُورٌ عَلَى شَأنِهِ،
overcome in his affair, overwhelmed in his situation,
مُخْتَلِفُ الْحَالاَتِ، مُتَنَقِّلٌ فِي الصِّفَاتِ.
diverse in states, constantly changing in attributes.
فَتَعَالَيْتَ عَنِ الأشْبَاهِ وَالاضْـدَادِ،
So Thou art high exalted above likenesses and opposites,
وَتَكَبَّـرْتَ عَنِ الأمْثَـالِ وَالأنْدَادِ،
proudly magnified beyond similitudes and rivals!
فَسُبْحَانَكَ لاَ إلهَ إلاَّ أَنْتَ.
Glory be to Thee! There is no God but Thou.
