bit his thumb [out of his malice toward me],

So, all praise be to You, O Lord;

made him fall in the bottomless depth of his hole,

إِلٰهِي فَلَكَ ٱلْحَمْدُ عَلَىٰ ذَلَك كُلِّهِ

il¡h¢ falaka al¦amdu `al¡ dh¡lika kullih¢

My God, all praise be to You for all that.

وَلآِلاَئِكَ مِنَ ٱلذَّاكِرِينَ

wa li-¡l¡'ika mina aldhdh¡kir¢na

and those who permanently mention Your graces.

 

You should then prostrate yourself and say the following:

سَجَدَ وَجْهِي الذَّلِيلُ`

My lowly face is humbly prostrating

لِوَجْهِكَ ٱلْعَزِيزِ ٱلْجَلِيلِ

سَجَدَ وَجْهِي وَسَمْعِي وَبَصَرِي

and upon my sins and offenses with Your pardon and mercy.

يَا رَحْمٰنُ يَا رَحِيمُ

O All-beneficent! O All-merciful!

اللَّهُمَّ إنِي ادْرَا بِكَ فِي نَحْرِ…

all¡humma inn¢ adra'u bika f¢ na¦ri…

O Allah, I seek You to protect me against…

 

Now, you may mention the name of your enemy.

وَاعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّهِ

wa a`£dhu bika min sharrih¢

I seek Your protection against his evils;

فَٱكْفنِيهِ بِمَا كَفَيْتَ بِهِ انْبِيَاءَكَ

and the oppressors amongst Your enemies

وَشَرِّ جَمِيعِ خَلْقِكَ

wa sharri jam¢`i khalqika

and against the evil of all Your creatures.

بِرَحْمَتِكَ يَا ارْحَمَ ٱلرَّاحِمِينَ

bira¦matika y¡ ar¦ama alrr¡¦im¢na

[I ask You] in the name of Your mercy; O most Merciful of all those who show mercy!

إِنَّكَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

Verily, You have power over all things.

وَحَسْبُنَا ٱللَّهُ وَنِعْمَ ٱلْوَكِيلُ

wa ¦asbun¡ all¡hu wa ni`ma alwak¢lu

Sufficient unto us is Allah; He is the best protector.
