if any of Thy servants should
harm me in what Thou hast forbidden
violate me in what Thou hast interdicted,
and if he should pass into
death with my complaint
I come to have a complaint against him while he is alive,
forgive him what he did to me
pardon him that through which he turned his back on me!
Inquire not from him about
what he committed toward me
expose him not through what he earned by me!
Make my open-handedness in
pardoning such servants
my contribution in charity toward them
the purest charity of the
the highest gift of those seeking nearness to Thee!
me for my pardoning them with Thy pardon
for my supplicating for them with Thy mercy
so that each one of us may
gain felicity through Thy bounty
each may attain deliverance through Thy kindness!
if there is a servant from

an ill visits on my account,
a harm touches from my direction,

Then protect me from what Thy decision mandates
and save me from what Thy justice decides,
for my strength cannot bear

If Thou recompensest me with

and if Thou dost not shield
me in Thy mercy,
Thou wilt lay me waste.
I ask Thee to grant, my God,
that whose giving will not decrease Thee,
and I ask Thee to carry
that whose carrying will not weigh Thee down:
My God, I ask Thee to give my soul,
which Thou didst not create
to keep Thyself from evil
nor to find the way to profit.
No, Thou brought it forth
to demonstrate Thy power over its like
and to provide an argument against its similar.
I ask Thee to carry those of my sins
whose carrying weighs me down
and I seek help from Thee in
whose heaviness oppresses me.
So bless Muhammad and his Household,

How many evildoers Thy mercy

saved through Thy giving success
the tangled plights of the sinners,
so that I may rise up
by Thy pardon from the bonds of Thy displeasure
released by Thy benefaction from the ties of Thy justice!
Surely if Thou dost that, my God,
Thou wilt do it to one who
deserving Thy punishment
acquit himself from merit for Thy vengeance.
that, my God, for one
whose fear of Thee is greater
his craving from Thee,
hopelessness of deliverance
firmer than his hope for salvation!
Not that his hopelessness is despair,
nor that his expectation is deluded.
No, rather his good deeds are few
among his evil deeds
and his arguments are frail
in face of everything due from his acts.
Thou, my God, art worthy that
righteous not be deluded concerning Thee
and the sinners not lose hope in Thee,
for Thou art the All-mighty Lord who
holds back His bounty from none
and takes His full right from no one.
High exalted is Thy mention
Holy are Thy names
Spread is Thy favour
Thine is the praise for that,
Lord of the worlds!
