Dua 44 For the coming of the month of Ramadhan
دُعَاؤُهُ إِذَا نَظَرَ إِلَى الْهِلَالِ

الْحَمْدُ للهِ الَّذِي هَدَانَا لِحَمْدِهِ،
aal-h'amdu lil-laahil-lad'ee hadaanaa lih'am-dihee
1.Praise belongs to God who guided us to His praise
وَجَعَلَنَا مِنْ أَهْلِهِ، لِنَكُونَ لإحْسَانِهِ مِنَ الشَّاكِرِينَ،
wa jaa'lanaa min ah-lih linakoona liih'-saanihee minash-shaakireen
2.and placed us among the people of praise, that we might be among the thankful for His beneficence
وَلِيَجْزِيَنَا عَلَى ذلِكَ جَزَآءَ الْمُحْسِنِينَ.
wa leeaj-zeeanaa a'laa d'alika jazaaa-al-muh'-sineen
3.and that He might recompense us for that with the recompense of the good-doers!
وَالْحَمْدُ للهِ الَّذِي حَبَانَا بِدِينِهِ،
wal-h'am-du lil-laahil-lad'ee h'abaanaa bideenih
4.And praise belongs to God who showed favour to us through His religion,
وَاخْتَصَّنَا بِمِلَّتِهِ، وَسَبَّلَنَا فِي سُبُلِ إحْسَانِهِ،
wakh-tas'-s'anaa bimil-latih wa sab-balanaa fee subuli ih'-saanih
5.singled us out for His creed, and directed us onto the roads of His beneficence,
لِنَسْلُكَهَا بِمَنِّهِ إلَى رِضْوَانِهِ،
linas-lukahaa biman-niheee ilaa riz''-waanih
6.in order that through His kindness we might travel upon them to His good pleasure,
حَمْدَاً يَتَقَبَّلُهُ مِنَّا، وَيَرْضَى بِهِ عَنَّا.
h'am-day-yataqab-baluhoo min-naa wa yar-z''aa bihee a'n-naa
7.a praise which He will accept from us and through which He will be pleased with us!
وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّه الَّذِي جَعَلَ مِنْ تِلْكَ السُّبُلِ شَهْرَهُ شَهْرَ رَمَضَانَ،
wal-h'am-du lil-laahil-lad'ee jaa'la min til-kas-subuli shah-rah shah-ra ramaz''aan
8.And praise belongs to God who appointed among those roads His month, the month of Ramadan,
شَهْرَ الصِّيَامِ، وَشَهْرَ الإِسْلاَم، وَشَهْرَ الطَّهُورِ،
shah-ras'-s'eeaam wa shah-ral-is-laam wa shah-rat'-t'ahoor
9.the month of fasting, the month of submission, the month of purity,
وَشَهْرَ التَّمْحِيْصِ، وَشَهْرَ الْقِيَامِ،
wa shah-rat-tam-h'ees' wa shah-ral-qeeaam
10.the month of putting to test, the month of standing in prayer,
الَّذِي أُنْزِلَ فِيْهِ الْقُرْآنُ هُدىً لِلنَّاسِ،
(al-lad'eee unzila feehil-qur-aaanu hudana liln-naasi
11."in which the Qur'an was sent down as guidance to the people,
وَبَيِّنَات مِنَ الْهُدى وَالْفُرْقَانِ،
wa bay-yinaatim-minal-hudaa wal-fur-qaan)
12.and as clear signs of the Guidance and the Separator" (2:185)!
فَأَبَانَ فَضِيْلَتَهُ عَلَى سَائِرِ الشُّهُورِ
faabaana faz''eelatahoo a'laa saaa-irish-shuhoori
13.He clarified its excellence over other months
بِمَا جَعَلَ لَهُ مِنَ الْحُرُمَاتِ الْمَوْفُورَةِ وَالْفَضَائِلِ الْمَشْهُورَةِ،
bimaa jaa'la lahoo minal-h'urumaatil-maw-foorati wal-faz''aaa-ilil-mash-hoorah
14.by the many sacred things and well-known excellencies which He placed therein,
فَحَرَّمَ فِيْهِ ما أَحَلَّ فِي غَيْرِهِ إعْظَاماً،
fah'ar-rama feehee maaa ah'al-la fee ghay-riheee ia'-z'aamaa
15.for He made unlawful in it what He declared lawful in others to magnify it,
وَحَجَرَ فِيْهِ الْمَطَاعِمَ وَالْمَشَارِبَ إكْرَاماً،
wa h'ajara feehil-mat'aai'ma wal-mashaariba ik-raamaa
16.He prohibited foods and drinks in it to honour it,
وَجَعَلَ لَهُ وَقْتاً بَيِّناً لاَ يُجِيزُ جَلَّ وَعَزَّ أَنْ يُقَدَّمَ قَبْلَهُ،
wa jaa'la lahoo waq-taa bay-yinaa laa yujeezu jal-la wa a'z-za ay-yuqad-dama qab-lah
17.and He appointed for it a clear time which He (majestic and mighty is He) allows not to be set forward
وَلا يَقْبَـلُ أَنْ يُؤَخَّرَ عَنْهُ،
wa laa yaq-balu ay-yoo-akh-khara a'n-h
18.and accepts not to be placed behind.
ثُمَّ فَضَّلَ لَيْلَةً وَاحِدَةً مِنْ لَيَالِيهِ عَلَى لَيَالِي أَلْفِ شَهْر،
thum-ma faz''-z''ala lay-lataw-waah'idatam-mil-layaaleehee a'laa layaaleee al-fi shah-ri
19.Then He made one of its nights surpass the nights of a thousand months
وَسَمَّاهَا لَيْلَةَ الْقَدْرِ،
wa sam-maahaa lay-latal-qad-r
20.and named it the Night of Decree;
تَنَزَّلُ الْمَلائِكَةُ وَالرُّوحُ فِيهَا بِإذْنِ رَبِّهِمْ مِنْ كُلِّ أَمْر،
(tanaz-zalul-malaaa-ikatu war-roohoo feehaa biid'-ni rab-bhim min kul-li am-rin)
21."in it the angels and the Spirit descend by the leave of their Lord upon every command,
سَلاَمٌ دَائِمُ الْبَرَكَةِ إلَى طُلُوعِ الْفَجْرِ،
salaamun daaa-imul-barakati ilaa t'ulooi'l-faj-ri
22.a peace" (97:4-5) constant in blessings until the rising of the dawn
عَلَى مَنْ يَشَاءُ مِنْ عِبَادِهِ بِمَا أَحْكَمَ مِنْ قَضَائِهِ.
a'laa may-yashaaa-u min i'baadihee bimaaa ah'-kama min qaz''aaa-ih
23.upon whomsoever He will of His servants according to the decision He has made firm.

wa al-him-naa maa'-rifata faz''-lih wa ij-laala h'ur-matih
25.inspire us with knowledge of its excellence, veneration of its inviolability,
وَالتَّحَفُّظَ مِمَّا حَظَرْتَ فِيهِ

26.and caution against what You hast forbidden within it,
وَأَعِنَّـا عَلَى صِيَامِـهِ بِكَفِّ الْجَـوَارِحِ عَنْ مَعَاصِيْكَ،
wa ai'n-naa a'laa s'eeaamihee bikaf-fil-jawaarihee a'm-maa'as'eeka
27.and help us to fast in it by our restraining our limbs from acts of disobedience toward You
وَاسْتِعْمَالِهَا فِيهِ بِمَا يُرْضِيْكَ
was-tia'-maalihaa feehee bimaa yur-z''eek
28.and our employing them in that which pleases You,

h'at-taa laa nus'-gheea bi s-maai'naaa ilaa lagh-w
29.so that we lend not our ears to idle talk
وَلا نُسْرِعَ بِأَبْصَارِنَا إلَى لَهْو،
wa laa nus-ria' bi b-s'aarinaaa ilaa lah-w
30.and hurry not with our eyes to diversion,

wa laa nakh-t'oo bi q-daaminaaa ilaa mah'-joor
32.and stride not with our feet toward the prohibited,

wa h'at-taa laa tae'ea but'oonunaaa il-laa maaa ah'-lal-t
33.our bellies hold only what You hast made lawful
وَلا تَنْطِقَ أَلْسِنَتُنَا إلاَّ بِمَا مَثَّلْتَ
wa laa tant'iqa al-sinatunaaa il-laa bimaa math-thal-t
34.and our tongues speak only what You hast exemplified,

wa laa natakal-lafa il-laa maa yud-nee min thawaabik
35.we undertake nothing but what brings close to Your reward
وَلاَ نَتَعَاطَى إلاّ الَّذِي يَقِيْ مِنْ عِقَابِكَ،
wa laa nataa'at'aaa il-laal-lad'ee yaqee min i'qaabik
36.and pursue nothing but what protects from Your punishment!
ثُمَّ خَلِّصْ ذَلِكَ كُلَّهُ مِنْ رِئآءِ الْمُرَائِينَ وَسُمْعَةِ الْمُسْمِعِينَ،
thum-ma khal-lis' d'alika kul-lahoo min reeaaa-il-muraaa-een wa sum-a'til-mus-mie'en
37.Then rid all of that from the false show of the false showers and the fame seeking of the fame seekers,
لاَ نَشْرَكُ فِيهِ أَحَداً دُونَكَ،
laa nash-raku feeheee ah'adana donak
38.lest we associate therein anything with You
