199.and show enmity to Thine enemies. Then You commanded him, but he did not follow Your commands,
وَزَجَرْتَهُ فَلَمْ يَنْزَجِرْ، وَنَهَيْتَهُ عَنْ مَعْصِيَتِكَ فَخَالَفَ أَمْرَكَ إلَى نَهْيِكَ،
wa zajar-tahoo falam yanzajir- wa nahay-tahoo a'm-maa'-s'eeatik fakhaalafa am-raka ilaa nah-yik
200.You restricted Him, but he did not heed Your restrictions, You prohibited him from disobedience toward You, but he broke Your command by doing what You hadst prohibited,
لاَ مُعَانَدَةً لَكَ وَلاَ اسْتِكْبَاراً عَلَيْكَ،
laa mua'anadatal-laka wa laa as-tik-baarana a'lay-k
201.not in contention with You, nor to display pride toward You;
بَلْ دَعَاهُ هَوَاهُ إلَى مَا زَيَّلْتَهُ، وَإلَى مَا حَذَّرْتَهُ،
bal daa'ahoo hawaahooo ilaa maa zay-yal-tahoo wa ilaa maa h'ad'-d'ar-tah
202.on the contrary, his caprice called him to that which You hadst set apart and cautioned against,
وَأَعَانَهُ عَلَى ذالِكَ عَدُوُّكَ وَعَدُوُّهُ،
wa aa'anahoo a'laa d'alika a'doo-wuka waa'doo
203.and he was helped in that by Your enemy and his enemy.
فَأَقْدَمَ عَلَيْهِ عَارِفاً بِوَعِيْدِكَ، رَاجِياً لِعَفْوِكَ،
wuh faaq-dama a'lay-h a'arifam-biwae'edik raajeeal-lia'f-wik
204.So he went ahead with it knowing Your threat, hoping for Your pardon,
وَاثِقاً بِتَجَاوُزِكَ، وَكَانَ أَحَقَّ عِبَادِكَ ـ
waathiqam-bitajaawuzik wa kaana ah'aq-qa i'baadika
205.and relying upon Your forbearance, though he was the most obligated of Your servants
مَعَ مَا مَنَنْتَ عَلَيْهِ ـ أَلاَّ يَفْعَلَ،
maa' maa mananta a'lay-heee al-laa yaf-a'l
206.- given Your kindness toward him - not to do so.
وَهَا أَنَا ذَا بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ صَاغِراً،
wa haaa ana d'aa bay-na yaday-ka s'aaghirana
207.Here I am, then, before You, despised,
ذَلِيلاً، خَاضِعَاً، خَاشِعاً، خَائِفَاً،
d'aleelana khaaz''ia'na khaashia'na khaaa-ifana
208.lowly, humble, abject, fearful,
مُعْتَرِفاً بِعَظِيم مِنَ الذُّنُوبِ تَحَمَّلْتُهُ،
mua'-tarifam-bi 'z'eemim-minad'-d'unoobi tah'am-mal-tuh
209.confessing the dreadful sins with which I am burdened
وَجَلِيْل مِنَ الْخَطَايَا اجْتَرَمْتُهُ،
wa jaleelim-minal-khat'aayaa aj-taram-tuh
210.and the great offenses that I have committed,
مُسْتَجِيراً بِصَفْحِكَ، لائِذاً بِرَحْمَتِكَ،
mus-tajeeram-bis'af-h'ik laaa-id'am-birah'-matik
211.seeking sanctuary in Your forgiveness, asking shelter in Your mercy,
مُوقِناً أَنَّهُ لاَ يُجِيرُنِي مِنْكَ مُجِيرٌ،
mooqinan an-nahoo laa yujeerunee minka mujeer
212.and certain that no sanctuary-giver will give me sanctuary from You
وَلاَ يَمْنَعُنِي مِنْكَ مَانِعٌ .
wa laa yam-nau'nee minka maaniu'n
213.and no withholder will hold me back from You.
فَعُدْ عَلَيَّ بِمَا تَعُودُ بِهِ عَلَى مَنِ اقْتَرَفَ مِنْ تَغَمُّدِكَ،
fau'd a'lay-ya bimaa tau'wdu bihee a'laa mani aq-tarafa min tagham-mudik
214.So act kindly toward me, just as You actest kindly by Your shielding him who commits sins,
وَجُدْ عَلَيَّ بِمَا تَجُودُ بِهِ عَلَى مَنْ أَلْقَى بِيَدِهِ إلَيْكَ مِنْ عَفْوِكَ،
wa jud a'lay-ya bimaa tajoodu bihee a'laa man al-qaa beeadiheee ilay-ka min a'f-wik
215.be munificent toward me, just as You art munificent by pardoning him who throws himself before You,
وَامْنُنْ عَلَيَّ بِمَا لاَ يَتَعَاظَمُكَ
wam-nun a'lay-ya bimaa laa yataa'az'amuka
216.and show kindness to me, just as it is nothing great for You
أَنْ تَمُنَّ بِهِ عَلَى مَنْ أَمَّلَكَ مِنْ غُفْرَانِكَ،
an tamun-na bihee a'laa man am-malaka min ghuf-raanik
217.to show kindness by forgiving him who expectantly hopes in You!
وَاجْعَلْ لِي فِي هَذَا الْيَوْمِ نَصِيباً أَنَالُ بِهِ حَظّاً مِنْ رِضْوَانِكَ،
waj-a'l-lee fee had'aal-yaw-mi nas'eeban anaalu bihee h'az'-z'am-mir-riz''-waanik
218.Appoint for me in this day an allotment through which I may attain a share of Your good pleasure,
وَلاَ تَرُدَّنِي صِفْراً مِمَّا يَنْقَلِبُ بِهِ الْمُتَعَبِّدُونَ لَكَ مِنْ عِبَادِكَ،
wa laa tarud-danee s'if-ram-mim-maa yanqalibu bihil-mutaa'b-bidoona lka min i'baadik
219.and send me not back destitute of that with which Your worshipers return from among Your servants!
وَإنِّي وَإنْ لَمْ أُقَدِّمْ مَا قَدَّمُوهُ مِنَ الصَّالِحَاتِ،
wa in-nee wa il-lam uqad-dim maa qad-damoohoo minas'-s'aalih'aati
220.Though I have not forwarded the righteous deeds which they have forwarded,
فَقَد قَدَّمْتُ تَوْحِيدَكَ،
faqad qad-dam-tu taw-h'eedaka
221.I have forwarded the profession of Your Unity
وَنَفْيَ الاَضْدَادِ وَالاَنْدَادِ وَالاشْبَاهِ عَنْكَ،
wa naf-yal-az''-daadi wal-andaadi wal-ash-baahee a'nk
222.and the negation from You of opposites, rivals, and likenesses,
وَأَتَيْتُكَ مِنَ الاَبْوَابِ الَّتِي أَمَرْتَ أَنْ تُؤْتى مِنْها،
wa atay-tuka minal-ab-waabi al-lateee amar-ta an too-taa min-haa
223.I have come to You by the gateways by which You hast commanded that people come,
وَتَقَرَّبْتُ إلَيْكَ بِمَا لاَ يَقْرُبُ ،
wa taqar-rab-tu ilay-ka bimaa laa yaq-rubu biheee
224.and I have sought nearness to You through that, without seeking nearness through which,
أَحَدٌ مِنْكَ إلاَّ بِالتَّقَرُّبِ بِهِ
ah'adum-minka il-laa bit-taqar-rubi bih
225.none gains nearness to You.
ثُمَّ أَتْبَعْتُ ذلِكَ بِالاِنابَةِ إلَيْكَ،
thum-ma at-baa'-tu d'alika bil-inaabati ilay-k
226.Then I followed all this with repeated turning toward You,
وَالتَّذَلُّلِ وَالاسْتِكَانَةِ لَكَ، وَحُسْنِ الظَّنِّ بِكَ، وَالثِّقَةِ بِمَا عِنْدَكَ،

227.lowliness and abasement before You, good opinion of You, and trust in what is with You;
وَشَفَعْتُهُ بِرَجآئِكَ
wa shafaa'-tuhoo birajaaa-ika
228.and to that I coupled hope in You,
الَّذِي قَلَّ مَا يَخِيبُ عَلَيْهِ رَاجِيْكَ،
al-lad'ee qal-la maa yakheebu a'lay-hee raajeek
229.since the one who hopes in You is seldom disappointed!
وَسَأَلْتُكَ مَسْأَلَةَ الْحَقِيرِ الذّلِيلِ
wa saal-tuka mas-alatal-h'aqeerid'-d'aleel
230.I asked You with the asking of one vile, lowly,
الْبَائِسِ الْفَقِيْرِ الْخَائِفِ الْمُسْتَجِيرِ،
al-baaa-isil-faqeeril-khaaa-ifil-mus-tajeer
231.pitiful, poor, fearful, seeking sanctuary;

wa mith-lud'-d'ar-rati aw doonahaa
237.like a dust mote or less!
فَيَا مَنْ لَمْ يَعَاجِلِ الْمُسِيئِينَ، وَلاَ يَنْدَهُ الْمُتْرَفِينَ،
fayaa mal-lam yua'ajilil-musee-een wa laa yandahul-mut-rafeen
238.O He who does not hurry the evildoers nor restrain those living in ease!
وَيَا مَنْ يَمُنُّ بِإقَالَةِ الْعَاثِرِينَ، وَيَتَفَضَّلُ بإنْظَارِ الْخَاطِئِينَ،
