In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.

O Allah, O Shelter of the shelter-seekers!
وَيَا مَعَاذَ ٱلْعَائِذِينَ

O Merciful toward the miserable!
وَيَا مُجِيبَ ٱلْمُضْطَرِّينَ

O Responder to the distressed!
وَيَا كَنْزَ ٱلْمُفْتَقِرِينَ

O Fortress of the refugees!
إِنْ لَمْ أَعُذْ بِعِزَّتِكَ فَبِمَنْ أَعُوذُ
in lam a`dh bi`izzatika fabiman a`udhu
If I seek not refuge in Your might, in whom shall I seek refuge?
وَإِنْ لَمْ أَلُذْ بِقُدْرَتِكَ فَبِمَنْ أَلُوذُ
wa in lam aludh biqudratika fabiman aludhu
If I seek not shelter in Your power, in whom shall I seek shelter?
وَقَدْ أَلْجَأَتْنِي ٱلذُّنُوبُ إِلَىٰ ٱلتَّشَبُّثِ بِأَذْيَالِ عَفْوِكَ
wa qad alja'atni adhdhunubu ila attashabbuthi bi-adhyali `afwika
Sins have made me seek asylum in laying hold on the skirts of Your pardon,
وَأَحْوَجَتْنِي ٱلْخَطَايَا إِلَىٰ ٱسْتِفْتَاحِ أَبْوَابِ صَفْحِكَ
wa ahwajatni alkhataya ila istiftahi abwabi safhika
offenses have compelled me to beg the opening of the doors of Your forgiveness,
وَدَعَتْنِي ٱلْإِسَاءَةُ إِلَىٰ ٱلْإِنَاخَةِ بِفِنَاءِ عِزِّكَ
wa da`atni al-isa'atu ila al-inakhati bifina'i `izzika
evildoing has summoned me to dismount in the courtyard of Your might,
وَحَمَلَتْنِي ٱلْمَخَافَةُ مِنْ نَقِمَتِكَ عَلَىٰ ٱلتَّمَسُّكِ بِعُرْوَةِ عَطْفِكَ
wa hamalatni almakhafatu min naqimatika `ala attamassuki bi`urwati `atfika
and fear of Your vengeance has prompted me to cling to the handhold of Your tenderness!
وَمَا أَحَقُّ مَنِ ٱعْتَصَمَ بِحَبْلِكَ أَنْ يُخْذَلَ
wa ma ahaqqu man i`tasama bihablika an yukhdhala
It is not right for him who holds fast to Your cord to be abandoned,
وَلاَ يَلِيقُ بِمَنِ ٱسْتَجَارَ بِعِزِّكَ أَنْ يُسْلَمَ أَوْ يُهْمَلَ
wa la yaliqu biman istajara bi`izzika an yuslama aw yuhmala
nor proper for him who seeks the sanctuary of Your might to be surrendered or disregarded.
إِلٰهِي فَلاَ تُخْلِنَا مِنْ حِمَايَتِكَ
ilahi fala tukhlina min himayatika
My God, empty us not of Your defending,
وَلاَ تُعْرِنَا مِنْ رِعَايَتِكَ
wa la tu`rina min ri`ayatika
strip us not of Your guarding,
وَذُدْنَا عَنْ مَوَارِدِ ٱلْهَلَكَةِ
wa dhudna `an mawaridi alhalakati
and protect us from the roads of destruction,
فَإِنَّا بِعَيْنِكَ وَفِي كَنَفِكَ وَلَكَ
fa inna bi`aynika wa fi kanafika wa laka
for we are in Your eye and under Your wing!
أَسْأَلُكَ بِأَهْلِ خَاصَّتِكَ
as'aluka bi-ahli khassatika
I ask You by those whom You have singled out,
مِنْ مَلائِكَتِكَ وَٱلصَّالِحِينَ مِنْ بَرِيَّتِكَ
min mala'ikatika wassalihina min bariyyatika
Your angels and the righteous among Your creatures,
أَنْ تَجْعَلَ عَلَيْنَا وَاقِيَةً
an taj`ala `alayna waqiyatan
to assign over us a protector
تُنْجِينَا مِنَ ٱلْهَلَكاتِ
tunjina min alhalakati
through which You will deliver us from destructions,
وَتُجَنِّبُنَا مِنَ ٱلآفَاتِ
wa tujannibuna min al-afati
turn aside from us blights,
وَتُكِنُّنَا مِنْ دَوَاهِي ٱلْمُصِيبَاتِ
wa tukinnuna min dawahi almusibati
and hide us from the striking of great afflictions,
وَأَنْ تُنْزِلَ عَلَيْنَا مِنْ سَكِينَتِكَ
wa an tunzila `alayna min sakinatika
to send down upon us some of Your tranquility,
وَأَنْ تُغَشِّيَ وُجُوهَنَا بِأَنْوَارِ مَحَبَّتِكَ
wa an tughashshiya wujuhana bi-anwari mahabbatika
to wrap our faces in the lights of love for You,
وَأَنْ تُؤْوِيَنَا إِلَىٰ شَدِيدِ رُكْنِكَ
wa an tu'wiyana ila shadidi ruknika
to give us haven in Your strong pillar,
وَأَنْ تَحْوِيَنَا فِي أَكْنَافِ عِصْمَتِكَ
wa an tahwiyana fi aknafi `ismatika
and to gather us under the wings of Your preservation!
بِرَأْفَتِكَ وَرَحْمَتِكَ
bira'fatika wa rahmatika
By Your clemency and Your mercy!
يَا أَرْحَمَ ٱلرَّاحِمِينَ
ya arhama arrahimina
O Most Merciful of the merciful!
