His Supplication in imploring Allah

دُعَاؤُهُ فِي التَّضَرُّعِ وَ الِاسْتِكَانَةِ

يَا أَللهُ الَّذِي لاَ يَخْفَى عَلَيْهِ
O God, from whom nothing is concealed
شَيْءٌ فِي الأَرْضِ وَلاَ فِي السَّمَآءِ،
in earth or heaven!
وَكَيْفَ يَخْفى عَلَيْكَ يَا إلهِي مَا أَنْتَ خَلَقْتَهُ؟
How should what Thou hast created, my God, be concealed from Thee?
وَكَيْفَ لاَ تُحْصِي مَا أَنْتَ صَنَعْتَهُ؟
How shouldst Thou not number what Thou hast made?
أَوْ كَيْفَ يَغِيبُ عَنْكَ مَا أَنْتَ تُدَبِّرُهُ؟
How should what Thou governest be absent from Thee?
أَوْ كَيْفَ يَسْتَطِيعُ أَنْ يَهْرُبَ مِنْكَ مَنْ لاَ حَياةَ لَهُ إلاَّ بِرِزْقِكَ؟
How should one who has no life except through Thy provision have the ability to flee from Thee?
أَوْ كَيْفَ يَنْجُو مِنْكَ مَنْ لاَ مَذْهَبَ لَهُ فِي غَيْرِ مُلْكِكَ؟
How should one who has no road except in Thy kingdom escape from Thee?
سُبْحَانَكَ! أَخْشى خَلْقِكَ لَكَ أَعْلَمُهُمْ بِكَ،
Glory be to Thee! He among Thy creatures who fears Thee most knows Thee best,
وَأَخْضَعُهُمْ لَكَ أَعْمَلُهُمْ بِطَاعَتِكَ،
he among them most bent in humility is most active in obeying Thee,
وَأَهْوَنُهُمْ عَلَيْكَ مَنْ أَنْتَ تَرْزُقُهُ وَهُوَ يَعْبُدُ غَيْرَكَ،
and he among them whom Thou providest while he worships another is most contemptible before Thee!
سُبْحَانَكَ! لاَ يُنْقِصُ سُلْطَانَكَ مَنْ أَشْرَكَ بِكَ، وَكَذَّبَ رُسُلَكَ،
Glory be to Thee! He who associates others with Thee and denies Thy messengers diminishes not Thy authority.
وَلَيْسَ يَسْتَطِيعُ مَنْ كَرِهَ قَضَآءَكَ أَنْ يَرُدَّ أَمْرَكَ،
He who dislikes Thy decree cannot reject Thy command.
وَلاَ يَمْتَنِعُ مِنْكَ مَنْ كَذَّبَ بِقُدْرَتِكَ،
He who denies Thy power keeps himself not away from Thee.
وَلاَ يَفُوتُكَ مَنْ عَبَدَ غَيْرَكَ،
He who worships other than Thee escapes Thee not.
وَلاَ يُعَمَّرُ فِي الدُّنْيَا مَنْ كَرِهَ لِقَآءَكَ.
He who dislikes meeting Thee will not be given endless life in this world.
سُبْحَانَكَ! مَا أَعْظَمَ شَأْنَكَ، وَأَقْهَرَ سُلْطَانَكَ،
Glory be to Thee! How mighty is Thy station, overpowering Thy authority,
وَأَشَدَّ قُوَّتَكَ، وَأَنْفَذَ أَمْرَكَ!
intense Thy strength, penetrating Thy command!
سُبْحَانَكَ! قَضَيْتَ عَلَى جَمِيعِ خَلْقِكَ الْمَوْتَ:
Glory be to Thee! Thou hast decreed death for all Thy creatures,
مَنْ وَحَّدَكَ وَمَنْ كَفَرَ بِكَ،
both him who professes Thy Unity and him who disbelieves in Thee;
وَكُلٌّ ذَائِقُ المَوْتِ،
each one will taste death,
وَكُلٌّ صَائِرٌ إلَيْكَ، فَتَبَارَكْتَ وَتَعَالَيْتَ،
each one will come home to Thee. Blessed art Thou and high exalted!
لاَ إلهَ إلاَّ أَنْتَ، وَحْدَكَ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَكَ، آمَنْتُ بِكَ،
There is no god but Thou, Thou alone, who hast no associate. I have faith in Thee,
وَصَدَّقْتُ رُسُلَكَ وَقَبِلْتُ كِتَابَكَ،
I attest to Thy messengers, I accept Thy Book,
وَكَفَرْتُ بِكُلِّ مَعْبُود غَيْرِكَ،
I disbelieve in every object of worship other than Thee,
وَبَرِئْتُ مِمَّنْ عَبَدَ سِوَاكَ.
I am quit of anyone who worships another!
أللَّهُمَّ إنِّي أُصْبحُ وَأُمْسِي مُسْتَقِلاًّ لِعَمَلِي،
O God, I rise in the morning and enter the evening making little of my good works,
مُعْتَرِفاً بِذَنْبِي، مُقِرَّاً بِخَطَايَايَ،
confessing my sins, admitting my offenses;
أَنَا بِإسْرَافِي عَلَى نَفْسِي ذَلِيلٌ،
I am abased because of my prodigality against myself.
عَمَلِي أَهْلَكَنِي، وَهَوَايَ أَرْدَانِي،
My works have destroyed me, my caprice has ruined me,
وَشَهَوَاتِي حَرَمَتْنِي.
my passions have deprived me.
فَأَسْأَلُكَ يَا مَوْلاَيَ سُؤالَ مَنْ نَفْسُهُ لاَهِيَةٌ لِطُولِ أَمَلِهِ،
So I ask Thee, my Master, the asking of him whose soul is diverted by his drawn out expectations,
وَبَدَنُهُ غَافِلٌ لِسُكُونِ عُرُوقِهِ،
whose body is heedless because of the stillness of his veins,
وَقَلْبُهُ مَفْتُونٌ بِكَثْرَةِ النِّعَمِ عَلَيْهِ،
whose heart is entranced by the multitude of favours done for him,
وَفِكْرُهُ قَلِيلٌ لِمَا هُوَ صَائِرٌ إلَيْهِ،
whose reflection is little concerning that to which he is coming home;
سُؤَالَ مَنْ قَدْ غَلَبَ عَلَيْهِ الاَمَلُ،
the asking of him whom false expectation has overcome,
وَفَتَنَهُ الْهَوى، وَاسْتَمْكَنَتْ مِنْهُ الدُّنْيَا،
caprice has entranced, and this world has mastered,
وَأَظَلَّهُ الاَجَلُ، سُؤَالَ مَنِ اسْتَكْثَرَ ذُنُوبَهُ،
and over whom death has cast its shadow; the asking of him who makes much of his sins
وَاعْتَرَفَ بِخَطِيئَتِهِ، سُؤَالَ مَنْ لاَ رَبَّ لَهُ غَيْرُكَ،
and confesses his offense; the asking of him who has no Lord but Thou,
وَلاَ وَلِيَّ لَهُ دُونَكَ، وَلاَ مُنْقِذَ لَهُ مِنْكَ،
no friend besides Thee, no one to deliver him from Thee,
وَلاَ مَلْجَأَ لَهُ مِنْكَ إلاَّ إلَيْكَ .
and no asylum from Thee except in Thee.
إلهِي أسْأَلُكَ بِحَقِّكَ الْـوَاجِبِ عَلَى جَمِيعِ خَلْقِكَ،
My God, I ask Thee by Thy right incumbent upon all Thy creatures,
وَبِاسْمِكَ الْعَظِيْمِ الَّذِي أَمَرْتَ رَسُولَكَ أَنْ يُسَبِّحَكَ بِهِ،
by Thy mighty name with which Thou commanded Thy messenger to glorify Thee,
وَبِجَلاَلِ وَجْهِكَ الْكَرِيمِ الذِي لاَ يَبْلى
and by the majesty of Thy generous face, which ages not,
وَلاَ يَتَغَيَّرُ، وَلاَ يَحُولُ وَلاَ يَفْنى،
nor changes, nor alters, nor passes away,
أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِ مُحَمَّد،
that Thou blessest Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
وَأَنْ تُغْنِيَنِي عَنْ كُلِّ شَيْء بِعِبادَتِكَ،
that Thou freest me from need for all things through worshipping Thee,
وَأَنْ تُسَلِّيَ نَفْسِيْ عَنِ الدُّنْيَا بِمَخَافَتِكَ،
that Thou distractest my soul from this world through fear of Thee,
وَأَنْ تُثْنِيَنِي بِالْكَثِيْرِ مِنْ كَرَامَتِكَ بِرَحْمَتِكَ،
and that Thou turnest me back toward Thy abundant generosity through Thy mercy!
فَإلَيْكَ أَفِرُّ، و مِنْكَ أَخَافُ، وَبِكَ أَسْتَغِيثُ،
To Thee I flee, Thee I fear, from Thee I seek aid,
وَإيَّاكَ أَرْجُو، وَلَكَ أَدْعُو، وَإلَيْكَ أَلْجَأُ،
in Thee I hope, Thee I supplicate, in Thee I seek asylum,
وَبِكَ أَثِقُ، وَإيَّاكَ أَسْتَعِينُ، وَبِكَ أُؤمِنُ،
in Thee I trust, from Thee I ask help, in Thee I have faith,
وَعَلَيْكَ أَتَوَكَّلُ،
in Thee I have placed my confidence,
وَعَلَى جُودِكَ وَكَرَمِكَ أَتَّكِلُ.
and upon Thy munificence and Thy generosity I rely.
