His Supplication in Asking Pardon

His Supplication in Asking Pardon for Misdeeds to God's Servants and for Falling Short in their Rights and that his Neck be Set Free from the Fire


O God,
          I ask pardon from Thee for
                    the person wronged in my presence
                              whom I did not help,
                    the favour conferred upon me
                              for which I returned no thanks,
                    the evildoer who asked pardon from me
                              and whom I did not pardon,
                    the needy person who asked from me
                              and whom I preferred not over myself,
                    the right of a believer who possesses a right incumbent upon me
                              which I did not fulfil,
                    the fault of a believer which became evident to me
                              and which I did not conceal,
                    and every sin which presented itself to me
                              and which I failed to avoid.


I ask pardon, my God,
                    for all of these and their likes,
          with an asking of pardon in remorse
                    which may act as an admonisher
                    against similar things ahead of me.


So bless Muhammad and his Household
          and make
          my remorse for the slips
                    into which I have fallen
          and my determination to refrain from the evil deeds
                    which present themselves to me
          a repentance which will make Thy love for me obligatory
O lover of those who repent!150
