In the Name of Allah, the All-merciful, the All-compassionate
 

1. My God, to Thee I complain of a soul commanding to evil, rushing to offenses, eager to disobey Thee, and exposing itself to Thy anger. It takes me on the roads of disasters, it makes me the easiest of perishers before Thee; many its pretexts, drawn out its expectations; when evil touches it, it is anxious, when good touches it, grudging; inclining to sport and diversion, full of heedlessness and inattention, it hurries me to misdeeds and makes me delay repentance.

2. My God, I complain to Thee of an enemy who misguides me and a satan who leads me astray. He has filled my breast with tempting thoughts, and his suggestions have encompassed my heart. He supports caprice against me, embellishes for me the love of this world, and separates me from obedience and proximity!

3 My God, to Thee I complain of a heart that is hard, turned this way and that by tempting thoughts, clothed in rust and the seal, and of an eye too indifferent to weep in fear of Thee and eagerly seeking that which gladdens it!

4. My God, there is no force and no strength except in Thy power, and no deliverance for me from the detested things of this world save through Thy preservation. So I ask Thee by Thy far-reaching wisdom and Thy penetrating will not to let me expose myself to other than Thy munificence and not to turn me into a target for trials! Be for me a helper against enemies, a coverer of shameful things and faults, a protector against afflictions, a preserver against acts of disobedience! By Thy clemency and mercy, O Most Merciful of the merciful

 Arabic Text

My God, to You I complain of a soul commanding to evil,

ilaaheee ilay-ka ash-koo naf-sana

 bis-sooo-i am-maarah 

إِلـٰهِي إليْكَ أَشْكُو نَفْساً بِالسُّوءِ أَمَّارَةً،

rushing to offenses,

wa ilaal-khat'ee-ati mubaadirah

وَإلَىٰ الْخَطيئَةِ مُبادِرَةً،

eager to disobey You,

wa bimaa'as'eeka moolaa'h

وَبِمَعاصِيكَ مُولَعَةً،

and exposing itself to Your anger.

wa lisakhat'ika mutaa'r-riz''atan

وَلِسَخَطِكَ مُتَعَرِّضَةً،

It takes me on the roads of disasters,

tas-luka bee masaalikal-mahaalik

تَسْلُكُ بِي مَسالِكَ الْمَهالِكِ،

it makes me the easiest of perishers before You;

wa taj-a'lunee i'ndaka ah-wana haalik

وَتَجْعَلُنِي عِنْدَكَ أَهْوَنَ هَالِكٍ،

many its pretexts, drawn out its expectations;

kathyratal-i'lal,  t'awylatal-amal

كَثِيرَةَ الْعِلَلِ طَوِيلَةَ الأَمَلِ،

when evil touches it, it is anxious,

im-mas-sahaash-shar-ru taj-zau'

 

إنْ مَسَّهَا الشَّرُّ تَجْزَعُ،

when good touches it, grudging;

wa im-mas-sahaal-khay-ru tam-nau'

وَإنْ مَسَّهَا الْخَيْرُ تَمْنَعُ،

inclining to play and diversion,

may-yaalatan ilaal-lai'bi wal-laah-wi

مَيَّالَةً إلَىٰ اللَّعِبِ وَاللَّهْوِ،

full of heedlessness and inattention,

mam-looo-atam-bil-ghaf-lati was-sah-wi

مَمْلُوَّةً بِالْغَفْلَةِ وَالسَّهْوِ،

it hurries me to misdeeds

tus-riu' beee ilaal-h'aw-bah

تُسْرِعُ بِي إلَىٰ الْحَوْبَةِ،

and makes me delay repentance.

wa tusaw-wifunee bit-taw-bah

 

وَتُسَوِّفُنِي بِالتَّوْبَةِ.

My God, I complain to You of an enemy who misguides me

ilaaheee ash-kooo ilay-k  a'doo-way-yuz''il-lunee

 

إِلـٰهِي أَشْكُو إلَيْكَ عَدُوّاً يُضِلُّنِي

and a satan who leads me astray.

wa shay-t'aanay-yugh-weenee

وَشَيْطانَاً يَغْوِينِي،

He has filled my breast with tempting thoughts,

qad malaa bil-was-waasi s'ad-ree

قَدْ مَلأَ بِالْوَسْواسِ صَدْرِي،

and his suggestions have encompassed my heart.

wa ah'aat'at hawaajisuhoo biqal-bee

وَأَحاطَتْ هَواجِسُهُ بِقَلْبِي

He supports caprice against me,

yua'az''idu leeal-hawaa

يُعاضِدُ لِيَ الْهَوىٰ،

embellishes for me the love of this world,

wa yuzay-yinu lee h'ub-bad-dunyaa

وَيُزَيِّنُ لِي حُبَّ الدُّنْيَا،

and separates me from obedience and proximity!

wa yah'oolu bay-nee wa bay-nat'-t'aaa'ti waz-zul-faa

وَيَحُولُ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَ الطَّاعَةِ وَالزُّلْفىٰ.

My God, to You I complain of a heart that is hard,

ilaaheee ilay-ka ash-koo qal-bana qaaseea

إِلـٰهِي إلَيْكَ أَشْكُو قَلْبَاً قاسِياً

turned this way and that by tempting thoughts,

maa'l-was-waasi mutaqal-liban

 

مَعَ الْوَسْواسِ مُتَقَلِّباً،

clothed in rust and the seal,

w-wa bir-ray-ni wat'-t'ab-i' mutalab-bisaa

وَبِالرَّيْنِ وَالطَّبْعِ مُتَلَبِّساً،

and of an eye too indifferent to weep in fear of You

wa a'y-nana a'nil-bukaaa-i min khaw-fika jaamidatan

وَعَيْنَاً عَنِ الْبُكاءِ مِنْ خَوْفِكَ جامِدَةً،

and eagerly seeking that which gladdens it!

w-wa ilaa maa tasur-ruhaa t'aamih'ah

وَإِلَىٰ ما تَسُرُّها طامِحَةً.

My God, there is no force and no strength except in Your power,

 

ilaahee laa h'aw-la wa laa qoo-wata il-laa biqud-ratik

إِلـٰهِي لا حَوْلَ وَلا قُوَّةَ إلاَّ بِقُدْرَتِكَ،

and no deliverance for me from the detested things of this world save through Your preservation.

wa laa najaata lee mim-makaarihid-dunyaaa il-laa bii's'-matik

وَلا نَجاةَ لِي مِنْ مَكارِهِ الدُّنْيا إلاَّ بِعِصْمَتِكَ،

So I ask You by Your far-reaching wisdom

faas-aluka bibalaaghati h'ik-matika

فَأَسْأَلُكَ بِبَلاغَةِ حِكْمَتِكَ،

and Your penetrating will

wa nafaad'i mashee-yatika

وَنَفاذِ مَشِيَّتِكَ،

not to let me expose myself to other than Your munificence

an-laa taj-a'l-nee lighay-ri joodika mutaa'r-riz''aa

 

أَنْ لا تَجْعَلَنِي لِغَيْرِ جُودِكَ مُتَعَرِّضاً،

and not to turn me into a target for trials!

wa laa tus'ay-yir-nee lil-fitani gharaz''aa

وَلا تُصَيِّرَنِي لِلْفِتَنِ غَرَضاً،

Be for me a helper against enemies,

wa kul-lee  a'laal-aa'-daaa-i naas'iraa

 

وَكُنْ لِي عَلَىٰ الأَعْداءِ ناصِرَاً،

a coverer of shameful things and faults,

wa a'laal-makhaazee wal-u'yoobi saatiraa

وَعَلَىٰ الْمَخَازِي وَالْعُيُوبِ ساتِراً،

a protector against afflictions,

wa minal-balaa’ee waaqeean

وَمِنَ الْبَلاءِ واقِياً،

a preserver against acts of disobedience!

waa'nil-maa'as'ee a'as'iman

وَعَنِ الْمَعاصِي عاصِمَاً،

By Your clemency and mercy, O Most Merciful of the merciful!

 

biraa-fatika wa rah'-matika

yaaa ar-h'amar-raah'imeen

بِرَأْفَتِكَ وَرَحْمَتِكَ يا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ.
