And You may grant me all my requests, desires, hopes, and needs,

وَصَرَفْتَ عَنِّي مَا أَكْرَهُ وَأَحْذَرُ

And You may ward off me all that which I despise and try to avoid,

وَأَخَافُ عَلَى نَفْسِي وَمَا لا أَخَافُ

And all that which I fear for myself and all that which I do not fear,

وَعَنْ أَهْلِي وَمَالِي وَإخْوَانِي وَذُرِّيَّتِي.

And do the same to my family members, my property, my brethren and my offspring.

اللّهُمّ إلَيْكَ فَرَرْنَا مِنْ ذُنُوبِنَا فَآوِنَا تَائِبِينَ،

O Allah: to You are we running from our sins; so (please do) shelter us as we are repentant,

وَتُبْ عَلَيْنَا مُسْتَغْفِرِينَ،

And accept our repentance as we are seeking Your forgiveness,

وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا مُتَعَوّذِينَ،

And forgive us as we are seeking Your protection,

وَأَعِذْنَا مُسْتَجِيرِينَ،

وَلا تَخْذُلْنَا رَاهِبِينَ،

And never disappoint us as we are fearful of You,

وَآمِنَّا رَاغِبِينَ،

And secure us as we are desiring for You,

وَشَفّعْنَا سَائِلِينَ،

And accept our intercession as we are begging You,

وَأَعْطِنَا إنّكَ سَمِيعُ الدّعَاءِ قرِيبٌ مُجِيبٌ.

And grant us (what we hope) as You are verily the Hearer of prayers, the Nigh, and the Responding.

اللّهُمّ أَنْتَ رَبّي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ

O Allah: You are my Lord and I am Your servant,

وَأَحَقّ مَنْ سَأَلَ العَبْدُ رَبّهُ

And it is conventional that a servant begs from his Lord,

وَلَمْ يَسْأَلِ العِبَادُ مِثْلَكَ كَرَماً وَجُوداً،

And all Your servants have never begged anyone who is as generous and magnanimous as You are.

وَوَلَدِي وَقَرَابَتِي وَأَهْلِ حُزَانَتِي

And my children and my relatives and my friends,

وَمَنْ كَانَ مِنّي بِسَبِيلٍ مِنَ المُؤْمِنِينَ وَالمُؤْمِنَاتِ فِي الدّنْيَا وَالآخِرَةِ،

And all those who relate to me from the believing men and women in this worldly life and the life to come,

فَإنّ ذلِكَ كُلّهُ بِيَدِكَ

For all that is managed by You alone

وَأَنْتَ وَاسِعُ المَغْفِرَةِ

And You are verily the Liberal in forgiving,

فَلا تُخَيّبْنِي يَا سَيّدِي،

So, please my Master: do not disappoint me,

وَلا تَرُدّ دُعَائِي وَلا يَدِي إلَى نَحْرِي

Because You verily have power over all things,

وَنَحْنُ إلَيْكَ رَاغِبُونَ.

And for You do we desire.

اللّهُمّ لَكَ الأَسْمَاءُ الحُسْنَى،

O Allah: Yours are the Most Excellent Names

وَالأَمْثَالُ العُلْيَا،

And the Most Elevated Examples,

وَالكِبْرِيَاءُ وَالآلاءُ،

O Allah: (please do) make for me relief and an outlet,

وَارْزُقْنِي مِنْ حَيْثُ أَحْتَسِبُ وَمِنْ حَيْثُ لا أَحْتَسِبُ،

And provide for me from whence I expect and from whence I do not expect,

وَاحْرُسْنِي مِنْ حَيْثُ أَحْتَرِسُ وَمِنْ حَيْثُ لا أَحْتَرِسُ،
