The Whispered Prayer of those Who hold fast(Mutasemeen)

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

1   O God, O Shelter of the shelter-seekers! O Refuge of the refuge-seekers! O Deliverer of the perishing! O Preserver of the pitiful! O Merciful toward the miserable! O Responder to the distressed! O Treasure of the utterly poor! O Mender of the broken! O Haven of the cut off! O Helper of the abased! O Granter of sanctuary to the fearful! O Aider of the troubled! O Fortress of the refugees! If I seek not refuge in Thy might, in whom shall I seek refuge? If I seek not shelter in Thy power, in whom shall I seek shelter? Sins have made me seek asylum in laying hold on the skirts of Thy pardon, offenses have compelled me to beg the opening of the doors of Thy forgiveness, evildoing has summoned me to dismount in the courtyard of Thy might, fear of Thy vengeance has prompted me to cling to the handhold of Thy tenderness! It is not right for him who holds fast to Thy cord to be abandoned, nor proper for him who seeks the sanctuary of Thy might to be surrendered or disregarded. My God, empty us not of Thy defending, strip us not of Thy guarding, and protect us from the roads of destruction, for we are in Thy eye and under Thy wing! I ask Thee by those whom Thou hast singled out, Thy angels and the righteous among Thy creatures, to assign over us a protector through which Thou wilt deliver us from destructions, turn aside from us blights, and hide us from the striking of great afflictions, to send down upon us some of Thy tranquillity, to wrap our faces in the lights of love for Thee, to give us haven in Thy strong pillar, and to gather us under the wings of Thy preservation! By Thy clemency and Thy mercy, O Most Merciful of the merciful!

O God, O Shelter of the shelter-seekers!

al-lahum-ma yaa malaad'al-laaa-id'een

اَللَّهُمَّ يا مَلاَذَ اللائِذِينَ،

O Refuge of the refuge-seekers! O Deliverer of the perishing!

wa yaa maa'ad'al-a'aa-id'eena

wa yaa munjeeal-haalikeen

وَيا مَعاذَ الْعائِذِينَ، وَيا مُنْجِيَ الْهالِكِينَ،

O Preserver of the pitiful! O Merciful toward the miserable!

wa yaa a'as'imal-baaa-iseen wa yaa raah'imal-masaakeen

وَيا عاصِمَ الْبائِسِينَ، وَيا راحِمَ الْمَساكِينِ،

O Responder to the distressed! O Treasure of the utterly poor!

wa yaa mujeebal-muz''-t'ar-reen wa yaa kanzal-muf-taqireen

وَيا مُجِيبَ الْمُضْطَرّ ِينَ، وَيا كَنْزَ الْمُفْتَقِرِينَ

O Mender of the broken!

wa yaa jaabiral-munkasireen

وَيا جابِـرَ الْمُنْكَسِرِينَ،

O Haven of the cut off!

wa yaa maa-waal-munqat'ie'en

وَيا مَأْوَىٰ الْمُنْقَطِعِينَ،

O Helper of the abased!

wa yaa naas'iral-mus-taz''-a'feen

وَيا ناصِرَ الْمُسْتَضْعَفِينَ،

O Granter of sanctuary to the fearful!

wa yaa mujeeral-khaaa-ifeen

وَيا مُجِيرَ الْخائِفِينَ،

O Aider of the troubled!

wa yaa mugheethal-mak-roobeen

وَيا مُغِيثَ الْمَكْرُوبِينَ

O Fortress of the refugees!

wa yaa h'is'-nal-laajeen

وَيا حِصْنَ اللاَّجِينَ،

If I seek not refuge in Your might, in whom shall I seek refuge?

il-lam au'd' bii'z-zatika fabiman au'wd'

إِنْ لَمْ أَعُذْ بِعِزَّتِكَ فَبِمَنْ أَعُوذُ ؟

If I seek not shelter in Your power, in whom shall I seek shelter?

wa il-lam alud' biqud-ratika fabiman alood'

وَإِنْ لَمْ أَلُذْ بِقُدْرَتِكَ فَبِمَنْ أَلُوذُ ؟

Sins have made me seek asylum in laying hold on the skirts of Your pardon,

wa qad al-jaat-need'-d'unoobu ilaat-tashab-buthi bid'-yaali
a'f-wik

وَقَدْ أَلْجَأَتْنِي الذُّنُـوبُ إلَىٰ التَّشَبُّثِ بِأَذْيالِ عَفْوِكَ،

offenses have compelled me to beg the opening of the doors of Your forgiveness,

wa ah'-wajat-neel-khat'aayaaa ilaa as-tif-taahee ab-waabi
s'af-h'ik

وَأَحْوَجَتْنِي الْخَطايا إِلَىٰ اسْتِفْتاحِ أَبْـوابِ صَفْحِكَ،

evildoing has summoned me to dismount in the courtyard of Your might,

wa daa't-neel-isaaa-atu ilaal-inaakhati bifinaaa-i i'z-zik

وَدَعَتْنِي الإِساءَةُ إِلَىٰ الإِنـاخَةِ بِفِناءِ عِزّ ِكَ،

fear of Your vengeance has prompted me to cling to the handhold of Your tenderness!

wa h'amalat-neel-makhaafatu min-naqimatika a'laat-tamas-suki
biu'r-wati a't'-fik

وَحَمَلَتْنِي الْمَخافَةُ مِنْ نِقْمَتِكَ عَلَىٰ التَّمَسُّكِ بِعُرْوَةِ عَطْفِكَ،

It is not right for him who holds fast to Your cord to be abandoned,

wa maaaah'aq-qu mani aa'-tas'ama bih'ab-lika ay-yukh-d'al

وَما حَقُّ مَنِ اعْتَصَمَ بِحَبْلِكَ أَنْ يُخْذَلَ،

nor proper for him who seeks the sanctuary of Your might to be surrendered or disregarded

wa laa yaleequ bimanis-tajaara bii'z-zika ay-yus-lama aw yuh-mal

وَلا يَلِيقُ بِمَنِ اسْتَجَـارَ بِعِزّ ِكَ أَنْ يُسْلَمَ أَوْ يُهْمَلَ.

My God, empty us not of Your defending,

ilaahee falaa tukh-linaa min h'imaayatik

إِلـٰهِي فَلا تُخْلِنا مِنْ حِمايَتِكَ،

strip us not of Your guarding,

wa laa tua'-rinaa mir-ria'ayatik

وَلاَ تُعْرِنَا مِنْ رِعَايَتِكَ،

and protect us from the roads of destruction,

wa d'ud-naa a'm-mawaaridil-halakah

وَذُدْنا عَنْ مَـوارِدِ الْهَلَكَةِ،

for we are in Your eye and under Your wing!

fa in-naa bia'y-nika wa fee kanafika

فَإنَّا بِعَيْنِكَ وَفِي كَنَفِكَ،

I ask You by those whom You have singled out, Your angels

wa lak as-aluka b aih-li khaaas'-s'atika mim-malaaa-ikatika

وَلَكَ أَسْأَلُـكَ بِأَهْـل خاصَّتِكَ مِنْ مَلائِكَتِكَ ،

and the righteous among Your creatures,

was'-s'aalih'eena mim-
baree-yatika

وَالصَّالِحِينَ مِنْ بَرِيَّتِكَ،

to assign over us a protector through which You will deliver us from destructions,

an taj-a'la a'lay-naa waaqeeatan tunjeenaa minal-halakat

 

أَنْ تَجْعَلَ عَلَيْنا واقِيَةً تُنْجِينا مِنَ الْهَلَكاتِ،

turn aside from us blights,

wa tujan-nibunaa minal-aaafaat

وَتُجَنّـِبُنا مِنَ الآفاتِ،

and hide us from the striking of great afflictions,

wa tukin-nunaa min dawaaheel-mus'eebaat

وَتُكِنُّنا مِنْ دَواهِي الْمُصِيباتِ،

to send down upon us some of Your tranquillity,

wa an tunzila a'lay-naa min sakeenatik

وَأَنْ تُنْزِلَ عَلَيْنا مِنْ سِكَيْنَتِكَ،

to wrap our faces in the lights of love for You,

wa an tughash-sheea wujoohanaa bi anwaari mah'ab-batik

وَأَنْ تُغَشّـِيَ وُجُوهَنا بِأَنْوارِ مَحَبَّتِكَ،

to give us haven in Your strong pillar,

wa an too-wiyanaaa ilaa shadeedi ruk-nik

وَأَنْ تُؤْوِيَنا إلىٰ شَدِيدِ رُكْنِكَ،

and to gather us under the wings of Your preservation!

wa an tah'-wiyanaa feee ak-naafi i's'-matik

وَأَنْ تَحْوِيَنا فِي أَكْنافِ عِصْمَتِكَ

By Your clemency and Your mercy,

biraa-fatika wa rah'-matika

بِرأْفَتِكَ وَرَحْمَتِكَ

O Most Merciful of the merciful!

yaaa ar-h'amar-raah'imeen

يا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ.
