Sahifa Sajjadiya - Supplication 32

Dua 32 His Supplication in the Night Prayer
دُعَاؤُهُ فِي صَلَاةِ اللَّيْلِ

أَللَّهُمَّ يَا ذَا الْمُلْكِ الْمُتأبِّدِ بِالْخُلُودِ وَالْسُلْطَانِ
al-laahum-ma yaa d'aal- mul-kil-mutaab-bidi bil-khulood was-sul-t'aan
1.O God, O Possessor of kingdom perpetual in everlastingness,
الْمُمْتَنِعِ بِغَيْرِ جُنُود وَلاَ أَعْوَان،
al-mum-tanii' bighay-ri junoodiw-wa laaa aa'-waan
2.authority invincible without armies or helpers,
وَالْعِزِّ الْبَاقِي عَلَى مَرِّ الدُّهُورِ،
wal-i'z-zil-baaqee a'laa mar-rid-duhoori
3.might abiding through aeons past,
وَخَوَالِي الأَعْوَامِ، وَمَوَاضِي الأَزْمَانِ وَالأيَّامِ،
wa khawaaleel-aa'-waami wamawaaz''eel-az-maani wal-ay-yaam
4.years gone by, times and days elapsed!
عَزَّ سُلْطَانُكَ عِزّاً لا حَدَّ لَهُ بِأَوَّلِيَّةٍ وَلاَ مُنْتَهَى لَهُ بِآخِرِيَّةٍ،
a'z-za sul-t'aanuka i'z-zal-laa h'ad-da lahoo biw-walee-yatiw-wa laa muntahaa lahoo biaakharee-yah
5.Your authority is mighty with a might that knows no bound by being first nor utmost end by being last!
وَاسْتَعْلَى مُلْكُكَ عُلُوّاً سَقَطَتِ الأشْيَاءُ دُونَ بُلُوغِ أَمَدِهِ
was-taa'-laa mul-kuka u'loo-wana saqat'atil-ash-yaaa-u doona bulooghi amadih
6.Your kingdom towers high with a towering before which all things fall down without reaching its term;
وَلاَ يَبْلُغُ أَدْنَى مَا اسْتَأثَرْتَ بِـهِ مِنْ ذَلِكَ أَقْصَى نَعْتِ النَّـاعِتِينَ.
wa laa yab-lughu ad-naa mas-taa-thar-ta bihee min d'alika aq-s'aa naa'-tin-naai'teen
7.the least of it which You hast kept to Yourself is not reached by the furthest description of the describers!
ضَلَّتْ فِيْـكَ الصِّفَاتُ وَتَفَسْخَتْ دُونَكَ النُّعُوتُ
z''al-lat feekas'-s'ifaat wa tafas-sakhat doonakan-nuu'wt
8.Attributes go astray in You, descriptions fall apart below You,
وَحَارَتْ فِي كِبْرِيِائِكَ لَطَائِفُ الأوْهَامِ،
wa h'aarat fee kib-reeaaa-ika lat'aaa-iful-aw-haami
9.the subtlest of imaginations are bewildered by Your magnificence!
كَذلِكَ أَنْتَ اللهُ الأَوَّلُ فِي أَوَّلِيَّتِكَ،
kad'alika antal-laahul-aw-walu feee aw-walee-yatik
10.So art Thou: God, the First in Your firstness,
وَعَلَى ذَلِكَ أَنْتَ دَائِمٌ لا تَزُولُ،
wa a'laa d'alika anta daaa-imul-laa tazool
11.and so art You everlastingly. You dost not pass away.
وَأَنَا الْعَبْدُ الضَّعِيْفُ عَمَلاً الجَسِيْمُ أَمَلاً،
wa anaal-a'b-d az''-z''ae'efu a'malaan al-jaseemu amalaa
12.But I am the slave, feeble in works, immense in hopes.
خَرَجَتْ مِنْ يَدِي أَسْبَابُ الْوُصُلاَت إلاّ مَا وَصَلَهُ رَحْمَتُكَ ،
kharajat mee-yadeee as-baabul-wus'ulaati il-laa maa was'alahoo rah'-matuk
13.The tying links are outside my hand, except what is tied by Your mercy;
وَتَقَطَّعَتْ عَنِّي عِصَمُ الآمَالِ
wa taqat'-t'aa't a'n-nee i's'amul-aaamaali
14.the bonds of hopes have been cut away from me,
إلاّ مَا أَنَا مُعْتَصِمٌ بِهِ مِنْ عَفْوِكَ،
il-laa maaa ana mua'-tas'imum-bihee min a'f-wik
15.except the pardon to which I hold fast.
قَلَّ عِنْدِي مَا أَعْتَدُّ بِهِ مِنْ طَاعَتِكَ
qal-la i'ndee maaa aa'-tad-du bihee min t'aaa'tik
16.Little on my part is the obedience toward You upon which I count,
وَكَثُرَ عَلَيَّ مَا أَبُوءُ بِهِ مِنْ مَعْصِيَتِكَ،
wa kathura a'lay-ya maaa abooo-u bihee mim-maa'-s'eeatik
17.and great against me the disobedience toward You to which I have reverted.
وَلَنْ يَضِيْقَ عَلَيْكَ عَفْوٌ عَنْ عَبْدِكَ وَإنْ أَسَاءَ فَاعْفُ عَنِّي.
wa lay-yaz''eeqa a'lay-ka a'f-wun a'n a'b-dika wa in asaaa-a faa'-fu a'n-nee
18.But pardoning Your slave will not constrain You, even if he be bad, so pardon me!
أللَّهًمَّ وَقَدْ أَشْرَفَ عَلَى خَفَايَا الأَعْمَالِ عِلْمُكَ
al-laahum-ma waqad ash-rafa a'laa khafaayaal-aa'-maali i'l-muk
19.O God, Your knowledge watches over hidden works
وَانْكَشَفَ كُلُّ مَسْتُور دُونَ خُبْرِكَ
wankashafa kul-lu mas-toorin doona khub-rik
20.every covered thing is exposed before Your awareness,
وَلاَ تَنْطَوِي عَنْكَ دَقَائِقُ الأُمُورِ
wa laa tant'awee a'nka daqaaa-iqul-umoor
21.the intricacies of things are not concealed from You,
وَلاَ تَعْزُبُ عَنْكَ غَيِّبَاتُ السَّرَائِرِ،
wa laa taa'-zubu a'nka ghay-yibaatus-saraaa-ir
22.and unseen mysteries slip not away from You.
وَقَدِ اسْتَحْوَذَ عَلَيَّ عَدُوُّكَ الَّذِي اسْتَنْظَرَكَ لِغِوَايتِي فَأَنْظَرْتَهُ،
wa qadi as-tah'-wad'a a'lay-ya a'doo-wukal-lad'ee s-tanz'araka lighawaayatee faanz'ar-tah
23.But over me Your enemy has gained mastery: He asked a delay from You to lead me astray, and You gavest him the delay!
وَاسْتَمْهَلَكَ إلَى يَوْمِ الدِّيْنِ لاِضْلاَلِي فَأَمْهَلْتَهُ،
was-tam-halaka ilaa yaw-mid-deeni liiz''-laalee faam-hal-tah
24.He asked a respite from You until the Day of Doom to misguide me, and You gavest him the respite!
فَأوْقَعَنِيْ وَقَدْ هَرَبْتُ إلَيْكَ
faaw-qaa'nee wa qad harab-tu ilay-ka
25.So he threw me down, though I had fled to You
مِنْ صَغَائِرِ ذُنُوبٍ مُوبِقَةٍ
min- s'aghaaa-iri d'unoobim-moobiqah
26.from small, ruinous sins
وَكَبَائِرِ أَعْمَالٍ مُرْدِيَـةٍ
wa kabaaa-iri aa'-maalim-mur-deeah
27.and great, deadly works,
حَتَّى إذَا قَارَفْتُ مَعْصِيَتَـكَ
h'at-taaa id'aa qaaraf-tu maa'-s'eeatak
28.until, when I had yielded to disobeying You
وَاسْتَوْجَبْتُ بِسُوءِ سَعْيِي سَخْطَتَكَ
was-taw-jab-tu bisooo-i saa'-yee sakh-t'atak
29.and merited Your anger through my bad efforts,
فَتَلَ عَنِّي عِذَارَ غَدْرِهِ،
fatala a'n-nee i'd'aara ghad-rih
30.he turned the bridle of his treachery away from me,
وَتَلَقَّانِي بكَلِمَةِ كُفْرهِ،
wa talaq-qaanee bikalimati kuf-rih
31.met me with the word of his ingratitude,
وَتَوَلَّى الْبَراءَةَ مِنِّي وَأَدْبَرَ مُوَلِّيَاً عَنِّي،
wa tawal-laal-baraaa-ata min-nee wa ad-bara muwal-leeana a'n-nee
32.undertook to be quit of me, turned his back to flee from me,
فَأَصْحَرنِي لِغَضَبِكَ فَرِيداً،
faas'-h'aranee lighaz''abika fareedaa
33.threw me to the desert of Your wrath alone,
وَأَخْرَجَني إلى فِنَاءِ نَقِمَتِكَ طَرِيداً
wa akh-rajaneee ilaa finaaa-i naqimatika t'areedaa
34.and sent me as an outcast into the courtyard of Your vengeance.
لاَ شَفِيعٌ يَشْفَعُ لِيْ إلَيْـكَ،
laa shafeeu'y-yash-fau' leee ilay-k
35.There is no intercessor to intercede for me with You,
وَلاَ خَفِيـرٌ يُؤْمِنُنِي عَلَيْـكَ
wa laa khafeeruy-yoo-minunee a'lay-k
36.no protector to make me feel secure against You,
وَلاَ حِصْنٌ يَحْجُبُنِي عَنْكَ
wa laa h'is'-nuy-yah'-jubunee a'nk
37.no fortress to veil me from You,
وَلاَ مَلاَذٌ أَلْجَأُ إلَيْهِ مِنْكَ.
wa laa malaad'un al-jaa ilay-hee mink
38.no shelter in which to seek asylum apart from You!
فَهَذَا مَقَامُ الْعَائِذِ بِكَ، وَمَحَلُّ الْمُعْتَرِفِ لَكَ،
fahd'aa maqaamul-a'aa-id'i bika wa mah'al-lul-mua'-tarifi lak
39.This is the station of him who takes refuge with You, the place of the confessor to You:
فَلاَ يَضِيقَنَّ عَنِّي فَضْلُكَ، وَلا يَقْصُـرَنَّ دونِي عَفْوُكَ،
falaa yaz''eeqan-na a'n-nee faz''-luk wa laa yaq-s'uran-na doonee a'f-wuk
40.Let not Your bounty be too narrow for me, let not Your pardon fall short of me!
وَلا أكُنْ أَخْيَبَ عِبَادِكَ التَّائِبِينَ،
wa laaa akun akh-yaba i'baadikat-taaa-ibeen
41.Let me not be the most disappointed of Your repentant servants,
وَلاَ أَقْنَطَ وفُودِكَ الآمِلِينَ
wa laaa aq-nat'a wfoodikal-aaamileen
42.nor the most despairing of those who come to You with expectations!
وَاغْفِرْ لِي إنَّكَ خَيْرُ الْغَافِرِينَ.
wagh-fir leee in-naka khay-rul-ghaafireen
43.Forgive me, surely You art the best of the forgivers!
أللَّهُمَّ إنَّكَ أَمَرْتَنِي فَتَرَكْتُ، وَنَهَيْتَنِي فَرَكِبْتُ،
al-laahum-ma in-nak amar-tanee fatarak-t wa nahay-tanee farakib-t
44.O God, You commanded me, and I refrained, You prohibited me, and I committed.
وَسَوَّلَ لِيَ الْخَطَأَ خَاطِرُ السُّوءِ فَفَرَّطْتُ،
wa saw-wala leeal-khat'aaa-a khaat'irus-sooo-i fafar-rat'-t
45.evil thoughts tempted me to offend, and I was negligent.
وَلا أَسْتَشْهِدُ عَلَى صِيَامِي نَهَـاراً،
wa laaa as-tash-hidu a'laa s'eeaamee nahaaraa
46.I cannot call upon daytime to witness my fasting,
وَلاَ أَسْتَجِيرُ بِتَهَجُّدِي لَيْلاً،
wa laaa as-tajeeru bitahaj-judee lay-laa
47.nor can I seek sanctuary in night because of my vigil;
وَلاَ تُثْنِي عَلَيَّ بِإحْيَائِهَا سُنَّةٌ
wa laa tuth-nee a'lay-ya biih'-yaaa-ihaa sun-natun
48.no Sunna praises me for keeping it alive,
حَـاشَا فُرُوضِـكَ الَّتِي مَنْ ضَيَّعَها هَلَكَ،
h'aashaa furooz''ikal-latee man z''ay-yaa'haa halak
49.only Your obligations, he who neglects which has perished.
وَلَسْتُ أَتَوَسَّلُ إلَيْكَ بِفَضْلِ نَافِلَة
wa las-tu atawas-salu ilay-ka bifaz''-li naafilatin
50.I cannot seek access to You through the excellence of a supererogatory work,
مَعَ كَثِيرِ مَا أَغْفَلْتُ مِنْ وَظَائِفِ فُرُوضِكَ،
maa' katheeri maaa agh-fal-tu miw-waz'aaa-ifi furooz''ik
51.given the many duties of Your obligations of which I have been heedless
وَتَعَدَّيْتُ عَنْ مَقَامَاتِ حُدُودِكَ
wa taa'd-day-tu a'm-maqaamaati h'udoodika
52.and the stations of Your bounds which I have transgressed,
إلَى حُرُمَات انْتَهَكْتُهَا، وَكَبَائِرِ ذُنُوب اجْتَرَحْتُهَا
ilaa h'urumaatin antahak-tuhaa wa kabaaa-iri d'unoobin aj-tarah'-tuhaa
53.thereby violating sacred things and committing great sins,
كَانَتْ عَافِيَتُكَ لِي مِنْ فَضَائِحِهَا سِتْراً.
kaanat a'afeeatuka lee min faz''aaa-ih'ihaa sit-raa
54.though You hast given me safety from their disgraces as a covering.
وَهَذَا مَقَامُ مَنِ اسْتَحْيَى لِنَفْسِهِ مِنْكَ،
wa had'aa maqaamu man as-tah'-yaa linaf-sihee mink
55.This is the station of him who is ashamed of himself before You,
وَسَخِطَ عَلَيْهَا، وَرَضِيَ عَنْكَ
wa sakhit'a a'lay-haa wa raz''eea a'nka
56.angry with himself, and satisfied with You.
فَتَلَقَّاكَ بِنَفْس خَاشِعَة، وَرَقَبَة خَاضِعَة، وَظَهْر مُثْقَل مِنَ الْخَطَايَا
fatalaq-qaaka binaf-sin khaashia'h wa raqabatin khaaz''ia'h wa z'ah-rim-muth-qalim-mina alkhat'aayaa
57.He meets You with a humble soul, a neck bent down, a back heavy with offenses,
وَاقِفاً بَيْنَ الرَّغْبَةِ إلَيْكَ وَالرَّهْبَةِ مِنْكَ،
waaqifam-bay-nar-ragh-bati ilay-ka war-rah-bati mink
58.hesitating between longing for You and fear of You.
وَأَنْتَ أَوْلَى مَنْ رَجَـاهُ،
wa anta aw-laa mar-rajaahoo
59.You art the most worthy of those in whom he might hope,
وَأَحَقُّ مَنْ خَشِيَـهُ وَاتّقـاهُ،
wa ah'aq-qu man khasheeahoo wa at-taqaah
60.the most deserving for him to dread and fear.
فَاعْطِنِي يَا رَبِّ مَا رَجَوْتُ، وَآمِنِّي مَا حَذِرْتُ،
faaa'-t'inee yaa rab-bi maa rajaw-t wa aaamin-nee maa h'ad'ir-t
61.So give me, my Lord, what I hope for, make me secure against what frightens me,
وَعُدْ عَلَيَّ بِعَائِدَةِ رَحْمَتِكَ إنَّكَ أكْرَمُ الْمَسْؤُولِينَ.
wa u'd a'lay-ya bia'aa-idati rah'-matik in-naka ak-ramul-mas-ooleen
62.and act kindly toward me with the kindly act of mercy! Surely You art the most generous of those from whom are asked!
أللَّهُمَّ وَإذْ سَتَـرْتَنِي بِعَفْوِكَ وَتَغَمَّـدْتَنِي بِفَضْلِكَ
al-laahum-ma wa id' satar-tanee bia'f-wik wa tagham-mat-tanee bifaz''-lika
63.O God, since You hast covered me with Your pardon and shielded me with Your bounty
فِي دَارِ الْفَنَاءِ بِحَضرَةِ الأكْفَاءِ
fee daaril-fanaaa-i bih'az''-ratil-ak-faaa-i
64.in the abode of annihilation and the presence of equals
فَأَجِرْنِي مِنْ فَضِيحَاتِ دَارِ الْبَقَاءِ
faajir-nee min faz''eeh'aati daaril-baqaaa-i
65.grant me sanctuary from the disgraces of the Abode of Subsistence
عِنْدَ مَوَاقِفِ الأشْهَادِ مِنَ المَلائِكَةِ الْمُقَرَّبِينَ
i'nda mawaaqifil-ash-haad minal-malaaa-ikatil-muqar-rabeen
66.at the standing places of the Witnesses (the angels brought nigh,
وَالرُّسُلِ الْمُكَرَّمِينَ وَالشُّهَدَاءِ وَالصَّالِحِينَ،
war-rusulil-mukar-rameen wash-shuhadaaa-i was'-s'aalih'een
67.the messengers honoured, the martyrs, the righteous)
مِنْ جَار كُنْتُ أُكَاتِمُهُ سَيِّئاتِي
min jaarin kuntu ukaatimuhoo say-yi-aatee
68.before the neighbour from whom I have hidden my evil deeds
وَمِنْ ذِي رَحِم كُنْتُ أَحْتَشِمُ مِنْهُ فِي سَرِيرَاتِي،
wa min d'ee rah'imin kuntu ah'-tashimu min-hoo fee sareeraatee
69.and the womb relative before whom I feel ashamed in my secret thoughts!
لَمْ أَثِقْ بِهِمْ رَبِّ فِي السِّتْرِ عَلَيَّ،
lam athiq bihim rab-bi fis-sit-ri a'lay
70.I trust them not, my Lord, to cover me over,
وَوَثِقْتُ بِكَ رَبِّ فِي الْمَغفِرَةِ لِيْ،
wa wathiq-t bika rab-bi fil-magh-firati lee
71.but I trust You, my Lord, to forgive me!
وَأَنْتَ أوْلَى مَنْ وُثِقَ بِهِ وَأَعْطَى مَنْ رُغِبَ إلَيْهِ
wa anta aw-laa maw-wuthiqa bih wa aa'-t'aa mar-rughiba ilay-h
72.You art the most worthy of those in whom confidence is had, the most giving of those who are besought,
وَأَرْأَفُ مَنِ اسْتُرْحِمَ فَارْحَمْنِي.
wa ar-afu mani as-tur-h'im far-h'am-nee
73.and the most clement of those from whom mercy is asked. So have mercy upon me!
أللهُمَّ وَأنتَ حَدَرْتَنِي مَاءً مَهِيناً مِنْ صُلب،
al-laahum-ma wa anta h'adar-tanee maaa-am-maheenaa min s'ul-bim
74.O God, You caused me to descend as mean water from loins
مُتَضَائِقِ الْعِظَامِ حَرِجِ الْمَسَالِكِ
mutaz''aaa-iqil-i'z'aami h'arijil-masaalik
75.of narrow bones and tight passages
إلَى رَحِم ضَيِّقَة سَتَرْتَهَا بِالْحُجُبِ
ilaa rah'imin z''ay-yqatin satar-tahaa bil-h'ujub
76.into a constricted womb which You hadst covered with veils;
تُصَرِّفُنِي حَالاًَ عَنْ حَال حَتَّى انْتَهَيْتَ بِيْ إلَى تَمَامِ الصُّورَةِ
tus'ar-rifunee h'aalana a'n h'aalin h'at-taa antahay-ta beee ilaa tamaamis'-s'oorah
77.You turned me about from state to state until You tookest me to the completion of the form
وَأَثْبَتَّ فِيَّ الْجَوَارحَ
wa ath-bat-ta fee-yal-jawaarih'
78.and fixed within me the bodily parts,
كَمَا نَعَتَّ فِي كِتَابِكَ
kamaa naa't-ta fee kitaabik
79.as You hast described in Your Book:
نُطْفَةً ثُمَّ عَلَقَةً ثُمَّ مُضْغَةً ثُمَّ عِظَاماً
(nut'-fatan thum-ma a'laqatan thum-ma muz''-ghatan thum-ma i'z'aamana
80.a drop, then a clot, then a tissue, then bones,
ثُمَّ كَسَوْتَ الْعِظَامَ لَحْماً ثُمَّ أَنْشَأتَنِي خَلْقَاً آخَرَ كَمَا شِئْتَ،
thum-ma kasaw-tal-i'z'aama lah'-mana thum-ma anshaa-tanee khal-qan aaakhar) kamaa shi-t
81.then You garmented the bones with flesh, then You produced me as another creature as You willed (ref.23:12-14).
حَتَّى إذَا احْتَجْتُ إلَى رِزْقِكَ،
h'at-taaa id'aa ah'-taj-tu ilaa riz-qika
82.Then, when I needed Your provision,
وَلَمْ أَسْتَغْنِ عَنْ غِيَـاثِ فَضْلِكَ
wa lam as-tagh-ni a'n gheeaathi faz''-lik
83.and could not do without the aid of Your bounty,
جَعَلْتَ لِي قُـوتـاً مِنْ فَضْلِ طَعَام وَشَرَاب
jaa'l-ta lee qootam-min faz''-li t'aa'amiw-wa sharaabin
84.You appointed for me a nourishment from the bounty of the food and drink
أَجْرَيْتَهُ لاِمَتِكَ الَّتِيْ أَسْكَنْتَنِي جَوْفَهَا وَأَوْدَعْتَنِي قَرَارَ رَحِمِهَا،
aj-ray-tahoo liamatikal-latee as-kantanee jaw-fahaa wa aw-daa'-tanee qaraara rah'imihaa
85.which You bestowed upon Your handmaid in whose belly You gavest me to rest and in the lodging of whose womb You deposited me.
وَلَوْ تَكِلُنِي يَا رَبِّ فِي تِلْكَ الْحَـالاتِ إلَى حَوْلِي،
wa law takil-nee yaa rab-bi fee til-kal-h'aalaati ilaa h'aw-leee
86.Hadst You entrusted me in those states, my Lord, to my own force
أَوْ تَضْطَرُّنِي إلَى قُوّتي
aw taz''-t'ar-runeee ilaa qoo-watee
87.or driven me to have recourse to my own strength,
لَكَانَ الْحَوْلُ عَنِّي مُعْتَزِلاً، وَلَكَانَتِ الْقُوَّةُ مِنِّي بَعِيدَةً،
lakaanal-h'aw-lu a'n-nee mua'-tazilaa wa lakaanati alqoo-watu min-nee bae'edah
88.force would have been removed from me and strength taken far away.
فَغَذَوْتَنِي بِفَضْلِكَ غِذَاءَ البَرِّ اللَّطِيفِ ،
faghad'aw-tanee bifaz''-lika ghid'aaa-al-bar-ril-lat'eef
89.So You hast fed me through Your bounty with the food of the Good, the Gentle;
تَفْعَلُ ذَلِكَ بِي تَطَوُّلاً عَلَيَّ إلَى غَايَتِي هَذِهِ،
taf-a'lu d'alika bee tat'aw-wulana a'lay-ya ilaa ghaayatee had'ih
90.You hast done that for me in graciousness toward me up to this my present point.
لاَ أَعْدَمُ بِرَّكَ وَلاَ يُبْطِئُ بِي حُسْنُ صَنِيعِكَ،
laaa aa'-damu bir-rak wa laa yub-t'i-u bee h'us-nu s'aneei'k
91.I do not lack Your goodness nor does Your benefaction keep me waiting.
وَلاَ تَتَأكَّدُ مَعَ ذَلِكَ ثِقَتِي،
wa laa tataak-kadu maa' d'alika thiqatee
92.Yet with all that, my trust has not become firm enough
فَأَتَفَرَّغَ لِمَا هُوَ أَحْظَى لِيْ عِنْدَكَ،
faatafar-ragha limaa huwa ah'-z'a lee i'ndak
93.that I might free myself for that which is more favoured by You.
قَدْ مَلَكَ الشَّيْطَانُ عِنَانِي فِي سُوءِ الظَّنِّ وَضَعْفِ الْيَقِينِ،
qad malakash-shay-t'aanu i'naanee fee sooo-iz'-z'an-ni waz''aa'-fil-yaqeen
94.Satan has taken possession of my reins through my distrust and frail certainty.
فَأَنَا أَشْكُو سُوْءَ مُجَاوَرَتِهِ لِي وَطَـاعَةَ نَفْسِي لَـهُ،
faanaa ash-koo sooo-a mujaawaratihee lee wa t'aaa'ta naf-see lah
95.I complain of his evil neighbourhood with me and my soul's obedience toward him!
وَأَسْتَعْصِمُـكَ مِنْ مَلَكَتِهِ، وَأَتَضَـرَّعُ إلَيْكَ في صَرفِ كَيدِهِ عَنّي
