The Whispered Prayer of the Beseechers (Raghebeen)

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

 

1   My God, though my stores for traveling to Thee are few, my confidence in Thee has given me a good opinion. Though my sin has made me fear Thy punishment, my hope has let me feel secure from Thy vengeance. Though my misdeed has exposed me to Thy penalty, my excellent trust has apprised me of Thy reward. Though heedlessness has put to sleep my readiness to meet Thee, knowledge has awakened me to Thy generosity and boons. Though excessive disobedience and rebellion have estranged me from Thee, the glad tidings of forgiveness and good pleasure have made me feel intimate with Thee. I ask Thee by the splendors of Thy face and the lights of Thy holiness, and I implore Thee by the tenderness of Thy mercy and the gentleness of Thy goodness, to verify my opinion in expecting Thy great generosity and Thy beautiful favour, through nearness to Thee, proximity with Thee, and enjoyment of gazing upon Thee! Here am I, addressing myself to the breezes of Thy freshness and tenderness, having recourse to the rain of Thy generosity and gentleness, fleeing from Thy displeasure to Thy good pleasure and from Thee to Thee, hoping for the best of what is with Thee, relying upon Thy gifts, utterly poor toward Thy guarding!

 

2. My God, Thy bounty which Thou hast begun - complete it! Thy generosity which Thou hast given me - strip it not away! Thy cover over me through Thy clemency - tear it not away! My ugly acts which Thou hast come to know - forgive them!

 

 

3. My God, I seek intercession from Thee with Thee, and I seek sanctuary in Thee from Thee! I have come to Thee craving Thy beneficence, desiring Thy kindness, seeking water from the deluge of Thy graciousness, begging rain from the clouds of Thy bounty, requesting Thy good pleasure, going straight to Thy side, arriving at the watering-place of Thy support, seeking exalted good things from Thy quarter, reaching for the presence of Thy beauty, wanting Thy face, knocking at Thy door, abasing myself before Thy mightiness and majesty! So act toward me with the forgiveness and mercy of which Thou art worthy! Act not toward me with the chastisement and vengeance of which I am worthy! By Thy mercy, O Most Merciful of the merciful!
