Month of Ramadan

Dua Elahi wa Kafis Saaleoon

it is recommended to say the following supplication every night in Ramadhan:

إلهِي وَقَفَ السّائِلُونَ بِبَابِكَ،

O my God: The beseechers have stood at Your Door

وَلاذَ الفُقَراءُ بِجَنابِكَ،

And the poor have resorted to Your refuge

وَوَقَفَتْ سَفِينَةُ المسَاكِينِ عَلَى سَاحِلِ بَحْرِ جُودِكَ وَكَرَمِكَ

And the ship of the needy have cast anchor near the coast of the sea of Your Magnanimity and Generosity

يَرْجُونَ الجَوَازَ إلَى سَاحَةِ رَحْمَتِكَ وَنِعْمَتِكَ.

Hoping for permission to enter the yard of Your Mercy and Favor

إلهِي إنْ كُنْتَ لا تَرْحَم فِي هَذا الشَّهْرِ الشَّرِيفِ إلاّ مَنْ أَخْلَصَ لَكَ فِي صِيَامِهِ وَقِيَامِهِ،

O my God : If You, in this holy month, will have mercy upon none but those who sincerely observe fasting and do acts of worship to You,

فَمَنْ لِلْمُذْنِبِ المُقَصِّرِ إذَا غَرِقَ فِي بَحْرِ ذُنُوبِهِ وَآثَامِهِ؟

Who will then stand for the sinful and the negligent who sinks in the ocean of his sins and offenses?

إلهِي إنْ كُنْتَ لا تَرْحَم إلاّ المُطِيعِينَ فَمَنْ لِلْعاصِينَ؟

O my God : If you have mercy upon non but the obedient to You, who will then stand for the disobedient?

وَإنْ كُنْتَ لا تَقْبَل إلاّ مِنْ العَامِلِينَ فَمَنْ للْمُقَصِّرِينَ؟

And if You accept none but those who do acts of worship to You, who will then stand for the negligent?

إلهِي رَبِحَ الصّائِمُونَ،

O my God : The observers of fasting have won

وَفَازَ القَائِمُونَ،

The doers of acts of worship to You have prospered

وَنَجَا الُمخْلِصُونَ،

Adn those who act sincerely have been saved

وَنَحْنُ عَبِيدُكَ المُذْنِبُونَ فَارْحَمْنَا بِرَحْمَتِكَ،

But we, Your sinful servants, beseech Your mercy; so, (please do) have mercy upon us

وَأَعْتِقْنَا مِنَ النَّارِ بَعَفْوِك،

And release us from the chastisement of Hellfire, out of Your pardon

وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا ذُنُوبَنَا

And forgive our sins

بِرَحْمَتِكَ يا أَرْحَمَ الرّاحِمِينَ

Out of Your mercy; O the most Merciful of all those who show mercy!
