بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

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

دُعَاؤُهُ لِوَدَاعِ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَFarewell to the Month of Ramadan
1
O God, O He who desires no repayment!
أللَّهُمَّ يَا مَنْ لا يَرْغَبُ فِي الْجَزَاءِ،
1
2
O He who shows no remorse at bestowal!
وَلاَ يَنْدَمُ عَلَى الْعَطَآءِ،
2
3
O He who rewards not His servant tit for tat!
وَيَا مَنْ لاَ يُكَافِئُ عَبْدَهُ عَلَى السَّوآءِ،
3
4
Thy kindness is a new beginning, Thy pardon gratuitous bounty,
مِنَّتُكَ ابْتِدَاءٌ، وَعَفْوُكَ تَفَضُّلٌ،
4
5
Thy punishment justice, Thy decree a choice for the best!
وَعُقُوبَتُكَ عَـدْلٌ، وَقَضَاؤُكَ خِيَرَةٌ،
5
6
If Thou bestowest, Thou stainest not Thy bestowal with obligation,
إنْ أَعْطَيْتَ لَمْ تَشُبْ عَطَآءَكَ بِمَنٍّ،
6
7
and if Thou withholdest, Thou withholdest not in transgression.
وَإنْ مَنَعْتَ لَمْ يَكُنْ مَنْعُكَ تَعَدِّيا
7
8
Thou showest gratitude to him who thanks Thee, while Thou hast inspired him to thank Thee.
تَشْكُرُ مَنْ شَكَرَكَ وَأَنْتَ أَلْهَمْتَهُ شُكْرَكَ،
8
9
Thou rewardest him who praises Thee, while though Thou hast taught him Thy praise.
وَتُكَافِئُ مَنْ حَمِدَكَ وَأَنْتَ عَلَّمْتَهُ حَمْدَكَ،
9
10
Thou coverest him whom, if Thou willed, Thou wouldst expose,
تَسْتُرُ عَلَى مَنْ لَوْ شِئْتَ فَضَحْتَهُ
10
11
and Thou art generous toward him from whom, if Thou willed, Thou wouldst withhold.
وَتَجُودُ عَلَى مَنْ لَوْ شِئْتَ مَنَعْتَهُ،
11
12
Both are worthy of Thy exposure and withholding,
وَكِلاَهُمَا أَهْلٌ مِنْكَ لِلْفَضِيحَةِ وَالْمَنْعِ،
12
13
but Thou hast founded Thy acts upon gratuitous bounty,
غَيْرَ أَنَّكَ بَنَيْتَ أَفْعَالَكَ عَلَى التَّفَضُّلِ،
13
14
channelled Thy power into forbearance,
وَأَجْرَيْتَ قُدْرَتَكَ عَلَى التَّجَاوُزِ،
14
15
received him who disobeyed Thee with clemency,
وَتَلَقَّيْتَ مَنْ عَصَاكَ بِالحِلْمِ،
15
16
and disregarded him who intended wrongdoing against himself.
وَأمْهَلْتَ مَنْ قَصَدَ لِنَفْسِهِ بِالظُّلْمِ
16
17
Thou awaitest their turning back without haste and refrainest from rushing them toward repentance,
تَسْتَنْظِرُهُمْ بِأناتِكَ إلى الإنَابَةِ وَتَتْرُكُ مُعَاجَلَتَهُمْ إلَى التَّوْبَةِ
17
18
so that the perisher among them may not perish because of Thee
لِكَيْلاَ يَهْلِكَ عَلَيْكَ هَالِكُهُمْ،
18
19
and the wretched may not be wretched through Thy favour,
وَلا يَشْقَى بِنِعْمَتِكَ شَقِيُّهُمْ
19
20
but only after Thy prolonged excusing him
إلاَّ عَنْ طُولِ الإِعْذَارِ إلَيْهِ،
20
21
and successive arguments against him,
وَبَعْدَ تَرَادُفِ الْحُجَّةِ عَلَيْهِ
21
22
as an act of generosity through Thy pardon, O Generous,
كَرَماً مِنْ عَفْوِكَ يَا كَرِيْمُ،
22
23
and an act of kindliness through Thy tenderness, O Clement!
وَعَائِدَةً مِنْ عَطْفِكَ يَا حَلِيمُ.
23
24
It is Thou who hast opened for Thy servants a door
أَنْتَ الَّذِيْ فَتَحْتَ لِعِبَادِكَ بَاباً
24
25
to Thy pardon, which Thou hast named 'repentance'.
إلَى عَفْوِكَ وَسَمَّيْتَهُ التَّوْبَـةَ،
25
26
Thou hast placed upon that door a pointer from Thy revelation,
وَجَعَلْتَ عَلَى ذلِكَ البَابِ دَلِيلاً مِنْ وَحْيِكَ
26
27
lest they stray from it: Thou hast said (blessed is Thy Name),
لِئَلاَّ يَضِلُّوا عَنْهُ فَقُلْتَ تَبَارَكَ اسْمُكَ :
27
28
"Repent toward God with unswerving repentance! It may be that Thy Lord
(تُوبُوا إلَى الله تَوْبَةً نَصُوحاً عَسَى رَبُّكُمْ
28
29
will acquit of your evil deeds and will admit you into
أَنْ يُكَفِّـرَ عَنْكُمْ سَيِّئاتِكُمْ وَيُدْخِلَكُمْ
29
30
gardens beneath which rivers flow,
جَنَّات تَجْرِي مِنْ تَحْتِهَا الأنْهَارُ
30
31
upon the day when God will not degrade the Prophet
يَوْمَ لاَ يُخْزِي اللهُ النَّبِيَّ
31
32
and those who have faith along with him, their light running before them and on their right hands,
وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مَعَهُ نُورُهُمْ يَسْعَى بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَبِأَيْمَانِهِمْ
32
33
and they say: 'Our Lord, complete for us our light, and forgive us!
يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا أَتْمِمْ لَنا نُورَنَا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا
33
34
Surely Thou art powerful over everything" (66:8).
إنَّكَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْء قَدِيرٌ)
34
35
What is the excuse of him who remains heedless of entering that house
فَمَا عُذْرُ مَنْ أَغْفَلَ دُخُولَ ذلِكَ الْمَنْزِلِ
35
36
after the opening of the door and the setting up of the pointer?
بَعْدَ فَتْحِ الْبَابِ وَإقَامَةِ الدَّلِيْلِ،
36
37
It is Thou who hast raised the price against Thyself to the advantage of Thy servants,
وَأَنْتَ الَّذِي زِدْتَ فِي السَّوْمِ عَلَى نَفْسِكَ لِعِبَادِكَ
37
38
desiring their profit in their trade with Thee,
تُرِيدُ رِبْحَهُمْ فِي مُتَاجَرَتِهِمْ لَكَ،
38
39
their triumph through reaching Thee, and their increase on account of Thee,
وَفَوْزَهُمْ بِالْوِفَادَةِ عَلَيْكَ وَالزِّيادَةِ مِنْكَ
39
40
for Thou hast said (blessed is Thy Name and high art Thou exalted),
فَقُلْتَ تَبَارَكَ اسْمُكَ وَتَعَالَيْتَ:
40
41
"Whoso brings a good deed shall have ten the like of it,
(مَنْ جَاءَ بِالْحَسَنَةِ فَلَهُ عَشْرُ أَمْثَالِهَا
41
42
and whoso brings an evil deed shall only be recompensed the like of it" (6:160).
وَمَنْ جَاءَ بِالسَّيِّئَةِ فَلاَ يُجْزى إلاّ مِثْلَهَا)
42
43
Thou hast said, "The likeness of those who expend their wealth in the way of God is as the likeness of a grain of corn
وَقُلْتَ: (مَثَلُ الَّذِينَ يُنْفِقُونَ أَمْوَالَهُمْ فِي سَبِيلِ الله كَمَثَلِ حَبَّة
43
44
that sprouts seven ears, in every ear a hundred grains;
أَنْبَتَتْ سَبْعَ سَنَابِلَ فِي كُلِّ سُنْبُلَة مَائَةُ حَبَّة
44
45
so God multiplies unto whom He wills" (2:261).
وَالله يُضَاعِفُ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ)
45
46
Thou hast said, "Who is he that will lend to God a good loan,
وَقُلْتَ: (مَنْ ذَا الَّذِيْ يُقْرِضُ الله قَرْضاً حَسَنَاً
46
47
and He will multiply it for him manifold" (2:245)?
فَيُضَاعِفَهُ لَهُ أضْعَافاً كَثِيرَةً)
47
48
And Thou hast sent down in the Qur'an similar verses on the multiplying of good deeds.
وَمَا أَنْزَلْتَ مِنْ نَظَائِرِهِنَّ فِي الْقُرْآنِ مِنْ تَضَاعِيفِ الْحَسَنَاتِ،
48
49
It is Thou who hast pointed them through Thy speech from Thy Unseen and Thy encouragement
وَأَنْتَ الَّذِي دَلَلْتَهُمْ بِقَوْلِكَ مِنْ غَيْبِكَ وَتَرْغِيْبِكَ
49
50
in which lies their good fortune toward that which - hadst Thou covered it from them
الَّذِي فِيهِ حَظُّهُمْ عَلَى مَا لَوْ سَتَرْتَهُ عَنْهُمْ
50
51
their eyes would not have perceived, their ears would not have heard,
لَمْ تُدْرِكْهُ أَبْصَارُهُمْ وَلَمْ تَعِـهِ أَسْمَاعُهُمْ
51
52
and their imaginations would not have grasped,
وَلَمْ تَلْحَقْـهُ أَوْهَامُهُمْ
52
53
for Thou hast said, "Remember Me and I will remember you be thankful to Me, and be you not thankless towards Me" (2:152)!
فَقُلْتَ: (اذْكُرُونِي أَذْكُرْكُمْ وَاشْكُرُوا لِيْ وَلا تَكْفُرُونِ)
53
54
Thou hast said, "If you are thankful, surely I will increase you,
وَقُلْتَ: (لَئِنْ شَكَـرْتُمْ لازِيدَنَّكمْ
54
55
but if you are thankless, My chastisement is surely terrible" (14:7);
وَلَئِنْ كَفَـرْتُمْ إنَّ عَذابِيْ لَشَدِيدٌ)
55
56
And Thou hast said, "Supplicate Me and I will respond to you,
وَقُلْتَ : (ادْعُونِيْ أَسْتَجِبْ لَكُمْ
56
57
surely those who wax too proud to worship Me
إنَّ الَّذِينَ يَسْتَكْبِرُونَ عَنْ عِبَادَتِي
57
58
shall enter Gehenna utterly abject" (40:60).
سَيَدْخُلُونَ جَهَنَّمَ دَاخِرِينَ)
58
59
Hence Thou hast named supplicating Thee 'worship' and refraining from it 'waxing proud',
فَسَمَّيْتَ دُعَاءَكَ عِبَادَةً، وَتَرْكَهُ اسْتِكْبَاراً،
59
60
and Thou hast threatened that the refraining from it would yield entrance into Gehenna in utter abjection.
وَتَوَعَّدْتَ عَلَى تَرْكِهِ دُخُولَ جَهَنَّمَ دَاخِرِينَ،
60
61
So they remember Thee for Thy kindness, they thank Thee for Thy bounty,
فَذَكَرُوكَ بِمَنِّكَ وَشَكَرُوكَ بِفَضْلِكَ،
61
62
they supplicate Thee by Thy command,
وَدَعَوْكَ بِأَمْرِكَ،
62
63
and they donate for Thee in order to seek Thy increase;
وَتَصَدَّقُوا لَكَ طَلَباً لِمَزِيدِكَ،
63
64
in all this lies their deliverance from Thy wrath
وَفِيهَا كَانَتْ نَجَاتُهُمْ مِنْ غَضَبِكَ،
64
65
and their triumph through Thy good pleasure.
وَفَوْزُهُمْ بِرِضَاكَ،
65
66
Were any creature himself to direct another creature
وَلَوْ دَلَّ مَخْلُوقٌ مَخْلُوقاً مِنْ نَفْسِهِ
66
67
to the like of that to which Thou Thyself hast directed Thy servants,
عَلَى مِثْلِ الَّذِيْ دَلَلْتَ عَلَيْهِ عِبَادَكَ مِنْكَ
67
68
he would be described by beneficence,
كَانَ مَوْصُوْفَاً بالإحْسَان
68
69
qualified by kindness, and praised by every tongue.
وَمَنْعُوتاً بِالامْتِثَال ومحمُوداً بكلِّ لِسَان،
69
70
So to Thee belongs praise as long as there is found a way to praise Thee
فَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ مَا وُجِدَ فِي حَمْدِكَ مَذْهَبٌ،
70
71
and as long as there remains for praising words by which Thou may be praised and meanings which may be spent in praise!
وَمَا بَقِيَ لِلْحَمْدِ لَفْظٌ تُحْمَدُ بِهِ وَمَعْنىً يَنْصَرفُ إلَيْهِ
71
72
O He who shows Himself praiseworthy to His servants through beneficence and bounty,
يَـا مَنْ تَحَمَّدَ إلَى عِبَـادِهِ بِالإِحْسَـانِ وَالْفَضْل،
72
73
flooding them with kindness and graciousness!
وَغَمَرَهُمْ بِالْمَنِّ وَالطَّوْلِ،
73
74
How much Thy favour has been spread about among us, Thy kindness lavished upon us,
مَا أَفْشَى فِيْنَا نِعْمَتَكَ وَأَسْبَغَ عَلَيْنَا مِنَّتَكَ،
74
75
and Thy goodness singled out for us!
وَأَخَصَّنَا بِبِرِّكَ
75
76
Thou hast guided us to Thy religion which Thou hast chosen,
هَدْيَتَنَا لِدِيْنِكَ الَّـذِي اصْطَفَيْتَ،
76
77
Thy creed with which Thou art pleased,
وَمِلَّتِـكَ الَّتِي ارْتَضَيْتَ،
77
78
and Thy path which Thou hast made smooth,
وَسَبِيلِكَ الَّذِي سَهَّلْتَ،
78
79
and Thou hast shown us proximity to Thee and arrival at Thy generosity!
وَبَصَّرْتَنَا الزُّلْفَةَ لَدَيْكَ وَالوُصُولَ إلَى كَـرَامَتِكَ.
79
80
O God, Thou hast appointed among the choicest of those duties
أللَّهُمَّ وَأَنْتَ جَعَلْتَ مِنْ صَفَـايَـا تِلْكَ الْوَظَائِفِ
80
81
and the most special of those obligations
وَخَصَائِصِ تِلْكَ الْفُرُوضِ
81
82
the month of Ramadan, which Thou hast singled out from other months,
شَهْرَ رَمَضَانَ الَّذِي اخْتَصَصْتَهُ مِنْ سَائِرِ الشُّهُورِ،
82
83
chosen from among all periods and eras,
وَتَخَيَّرْتَهُ مِن جَمِيعِ الأزْمِنَةِ وَالدُّهُورِ،
83
84
and preferred over all times of the year
وَآثَرْتَهُ عَلَى كُلِّ أَوْقَاتِ السَّنَةِ
84
85
through the Qur'an and the Light which Thou sent down within it,
بِمَا أَنْزَلْتَ فِيهِ مِنَ الْقُرْآنِ وَالنُّورِ،
85
86
the faith which Thou multiplied by means of it,
وَضَاعَفْتَ فِيهِ مِنَ الإيْمَانِ،
86
87
the fasting which Thou obligated therein,
وَفَرَضْتَ فِيْهِ مِنَ الصِّيَامِ،
87
88
the standing in prayer which Thou encouraged at its time,
وَرَغَّبْتَ فِيهِ مِنَ القِيَامِ،
88
89
and the Night of Decree which Thou magnified therein,
وَأَجْلَلْتَ فِيهِ مِنْ لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ
89
90
the night which is "better than a thousand months" (97:3).
الَّتِي هِيَ خَيْرٌ مِنْ أَلْفِ شَهْر،
90
91
Through it Thou hast preferred us over the other communities
ثُمَّ آثَرْتَنَا بِهِ عَلَى سَائِرِ الأُمَمِ
91
92
and through its excellence Thou hast chosen us to the exclusion of the people of the creeds.
وَاصْطَفَيْتَنَا بِفَضْلِهِ دُوْنَ أَهْلِ الْمِلَلِ،
92
93
We fasted by Thy command in its daylight,
فَصُمْنَا بِأَمْرِكَ نَهَارَهُ،
93
94
we stood in prayer with Thy help in its night,
وَقُمْنَا بِعَوْنِكَ لَيْلَهُ
94
95
presenting ourselves by its fasting and its standing to the mercy which Thou hast held up before us,
مُتَعَرِّضِينَ بِصِيَامِهِ وَقِيَامِهِ لِمَا عَرَّضْتَنَا لَهُ مِنْ رَحْمَتِكَ،
95
96
and we found through it the means to Thy reward.
وَتَسَبَّبْنَا إلَيْـهِ مِنْ مَثُوبَتِكَ،
96
97
And Thou art full of what is sought from Thee,
وَأَنْتَ الْمَليءُ بِمَا رُغِبَ فِيهِ إلَيْكَ،
97
98
munificent with what is asked of Thy bounty,
الْجَوَادُ بِمـا سُئِلْتَ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ،
98
99
and near to him who strives for Thy nearness.
الْقَـرِيبُ إلَى مَنْ حَـاوَلَ قُرْبَكَ،
99
100
This month stood among us in a standing place of praise,
وَقَدْ أَقَامَ فِينَا هَذَا الشَّهْرُ مَقَامَ حَمْد
100
101
accompanied us with the companionship of one approved,
وَصَحِبَنَا صُحْبَةَ مَبْرُور،
101
102
and profited us with the most excellent profit of the world's creatures.
وَأَرْبَحَنَا أَفْضَلَ أَرْبَاحِ الْعَالَمِينَ،
102
103
Then it parted from us at the completion of its time, the end of its term, and the fulfilment of its number.
ثُمَّ قَدْ فَارَقَنَا عِنْدَ تَمَامِ وَقْتِهِ وَانْقِطَاعِ مُدَّتِهِ وَوَفَاءِ عَدَدِهِ،
103
104
So we bid farewell to it with the farewell of one whose parting pains us,
فَنَحْنُ مُوَدِّعُوهُ وِدَاعَ مَنْ عَزَّ فِرَاقُهُ عَلَيْنَا
104
105
whose leaving fills us with gloom and loneliness,
وَغَمَّنَا وَأَوْحَشَنَا انْصِرَافُهُ عَنَّا
105
106
and to whom we have come to owe a safeguarded claim,
وَلَزِمَنَا لَهُ الذِّمَامُ الْمَحْفُوظُ،
106
107
an observed inviolability, and a discharged right.
وَالْحُرْمَةُ الْمَرْعِيَّةُ، وَالْحَقُّ الْمَقْضِيُّ،
107
108
We say: Peace be upon thee,
فَنَحْنُ قَائِلُونَ: السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ
108
109
O greatest month of God! O festival of His friends!
يَا شَهْرَ اللهِ الأكْبَرَ، وَيَا عِيْدَ أَوْلِيَائِهِ.
109
110
Peace be upon thee, O most noble of accompanying times!
السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ يَـا أكْرَمَ مَصْحُـوب مِنَ الأوْقَاتِ،
110
111
O best of months in days and hours!
وَيَا خَيْرَ شَهْر فِي الأيَّامِ وَالسَّاعَاتِ.
111
112
Peace be upon thee, month in which expectations come near
السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ مِنْ شَهْر قَرُبَتْ فِيهِ الآمالُ
112
113
and good works are scattered about!
وَنُشِرَتْ فِيهِ الأَعْمَالُ.
113
114
Peace be upon thee, comrade who is great in worth when found
السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ مِنْ قَرِين جَلَّ قَدْرُهُ مَوْجُوداً،
114
115
and who torments through absence when lost, anticipated friend whose parting gives pain!
وَأَفْجَعَ فَقْدُهُ مَفْقُوداً، وَمَرْجُوٍّ آلَمَ فِرَاقُهُ.
115
116
Peace be upon thee, familiar who brought comfort in coming, thus making happy,
السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ مِنْ أَلِيف آنَسَ مُقْبِلاً فَسَرَّ
116
117
who left loneliness in going, thus giving anguish!
وَأَوْحَشَ مُنْقَضِياً فَمَضَّ.
117
118
Peace be upon thee, neighbour in whom hearts became tender and sins became few!
السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ مِنْ مُجَاوِر رَقَّتْ فِيهِ الْقُلُوبُ، وَقَلَّتْ فِيهِ الذُّنُوبُ.
118
119
Peace be upon thee, helper who aided against Satan,
السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ مِنْ نَاصِر أَعَانَ عَلَى الشَّيْطَانِ
119
120
companion who made easy the paths of good-doing!
وَصَاحِب سَهَّلَ سُبُلَ الإحْسَانِ.
120
121
Peace be upon thee - How many became freedmen of God within thee!
أَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ مَا أكْثَرَ عُتَقَاءَ اللهِ فِيكَ
121
122
How happy those who observed the respect due to thee!
وَمَا أَسْعَدَ مَنْ رَعَى حُرْمَتَكَ بكَ!.
122
123
Peace be upon thee - How many the sins thou erased!
أَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ مَا كَانَ أَمْحَاكَ لِلذُّنُوبِ،
123
124
How many the kinds of faults thou covered over!
وَأَسْتَرَكَ لأَِنْوَاعِ الْعُيُوبِ!
124
125
Peace be upon thee - How drawn out wert thou for the sinners!
أَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ مَا كَانَ أَطْوَلَكَ عَلَى الْمُجْرِمِينَ،
125
126
How awesome wert thou in the hearts of the faithful!
وَأَهْيَبَكَ فِي صُدُورِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ!
126
127
Peace be upon thee, month with which no days compete!
أَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ مِنْ شَهْر لا تُنَافِسُهُ الأيَّامُ.
127
128
Peace be upon thee, month which is peace in all affairs!
أَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ مِنْ شَهْر هُوَ مِنْ كُلِّ أَمْر سَلاَمٌ.
128
129
Peace be upon thee, thou whose companionship is not disliked,
أَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ غَيْرَ كَرِيهِ الْمُصَاحَبَةِ
129
130
thou whose friendly mixing is not blamed!
وَلاَ ذَمِيمِ الْمُلاَبَسَةِ.
130
131
Peace be upon thee, just as thou hast entered upon us with blessings
أَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ كَمَا وَفَدْتَ عَلَيْنَا بِالْبَرَكَاتِ،
131
132
and cleansed us of the defilement of offenses!
وَغَسَلْتَ عَنَّا دَنَسَ الْخَطِيئاتِ.
132
133
Peace be upon thee - Thou art not bid farewell in annoyance
أَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ غَيْرَ مُوَدَّع بَرَماً
133
134
nor is thy fasting left in weariness!
وَلاَ مَتْرُوك صِيَامُهُ سَأَماً.
134
135
Peace be upon thee, object of seeking before thy time,
أَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ مِنْ مَطْلُوبِ قَبْلَ وَقْتِهِ
135
136
object of sorrow before thy passing!
وَمَحْزُون عَلَيْهِ قَبْلَ فَوْتِهِ.
136
137
Peace be upon thee - How much evil was turned away from us through thee!
أَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ كَمْ مِنْ سُوء صُرِفَ بِكَ عَنَّا
137
138
How much good flowed upon us because of thee!
وَكَمْ مِنْ خَيْر أُفِيضَ بِكَ عَلَيْنَا.
138
139
Peace be upon thee and upon the Night of Decree
أَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْـكَ وَعَلَى لَيْلَةِ الْقَدْرِ
139
140
which is "better than a thousand months" (97:3)!
الَّتِي هِيَ خَيْرٌ مِنْ أَلْفِ شَهْر.
140
141
Peace be upon thee - How much we craved thee yesterday!
أَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ ما كَانَ أَحْرَصَنَا بِالأمْسِ عَلَيْكَ
141
142
How intensely we shall yearn for thee tomorrow!
وَأَشَدَّ شَوْقَنَا غَدَاً إلَيْكَ.
142
143
Peace be upon thee and upon thy bounty which has now been made unlawful to us
أَلسَلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ وَعَلَى فَضْلِكَ الَّذِي حُرِمْنَاهُ ،
143
144
and upon thy blessings gone by which have now been stripped away from us!
وَعَلَى مَاض مِنْ بَرَكَاتِكَ سُلِبْنَاهُ.
144
145
O God, we are the people of this month. Through it Thou hast ennobled us
أَللَّهُمَّ إنَّا أَهْلُ هَذَا الشَّهْرِ الِّذِي شَرَّفْتَنَا بِهِ
145
146
and given us success because of Thy kindness, while the wretched are ignorant of its time.
وَوَفّقتَنَا بِمَنِّكَ لَهُ حِينَ جَهِلَ الاَشْقِيَا وَقْتَهُُ
146
147
Made unlawful to them is its bounty because of their wretchedness.
وَحُرِمُوا لِشَقَائِهِم فَضْلَهُ،
147
148
Thou art the patron of the knowledge of it by which Thou hast preferred us,
أَنْتَ وَلِيُّ مَا اثَرْتَنَا بِهِ مِنْ مَعْرِفَتِهِ،
148
149
and its prescribed practices to which Thou hast guided us.
وَهَدَيْتَنَا مِنْ سُنَّتِهِ،
149
150
We have undertaken, through Thy giving success, its fasting and its standing in prayer, but with shortcomings,
وَقَدْ تَوَلَّيْنَا بِتَوْفِيقِكَ صِيَامَهُ وَقِيَامَهُ عَلى تَقْصِير،
150
151
and we have performed little of much.
وَأَدَّيْنَا فِيهِ قَلِيلاً مِنْ كَثِيـر.
151
152
O God, so to Thee belongs praise, in admission of evil doing
اللَّهُمَّ فَلَكَ الْحمدُ إقْـرَاراً بِـالإسَاءَةَ
152
153
and confession of negligence, and to Thee belongs remorse firmly knitted in our hearts
وَاعْتِرَافاً بِالإضَاعَةِ، وَلَك مِنْ قُلُوبِنَا عَقْدُ النَّدَمِ،
153
154
and seeking of pardon sincerely uttered by our tongues.
وَمِنْ أَلْسِنَتِنَا صِدْقُ الاعْتِذَارِ،
154
155
Reward us, in spite of the neglect that befell us in this month,
فَاْجُرْنَا عَلَى مَا أَصَابَنَا فِيهِ مِنَ التَّفْرِيطِ
155
156
with a reward through which we may reach the bounty desired from it
أَجْرَاً نَسْتَدْركُ بِهِ الْفَضْلَ الْمَرْغُوبَ فِيهِ،
156
157
and win the varieties of its craved stores!
وَنَعْتَاضُ بِهِ مِنْ أَنْوَاعِ الذُّخْرِ الْمَحْرُوصِ عَلَيْهِ ،
157
158
Make incumbent upon us Thy pardon for our falling short of Thy right in this month
وَأَوْجِبْ لَنَا عُذْرَكَ عَلَى مَا قَصَّرْنَا فِيهِ مِنْ حَقِّكَ،
158
159
and make our lives which lie before us reach the coming month of Ramadan!
وَابْلُغْ بِأَعْمَارِنَا مَا بَيْنَ أَيْديْنَا مِنْ شَهْرِ رَمَضَانَ الْمُقْبِلِ،
159
160
Once Thou hast made us reach it, help us perform
فَإذَا بَلَّغْتَنَاهُ فَأَعِنَّا عَلَى تَنَاوُلِ
160
161
the worship of which Thou art worthy,
مَا أَنْتَ أَهْلُهُ مِنَ الْعِبَادَةِ
161
162
cause us to undertake the obedience which Thou deservest,
وَأَدِّنَا إلَى الْقِيَامِ بِمَا يَسْتَحِقُّهُ مِنَ الطَّاعَةِ
162
163
and grant us righteous works
وَأجْرِ لنا مِنْ صَالِحِ العَمَلِ
163
164
that we may fulfil Thy right in these two months of the months of time.
مَا يَكون دَرَكاً لِحَقِّكَ فِي الشَّهْرَيْنِ مِنْ شُهُورِ الدَّهْرِ.
164
165
O God, as for the small and large sins which we have committed in this our month,
أللَّهُمَّ وَمَا أَلْمَمْنَا بِهِ فِي شَهْرِنَا هَذَا مِنْ لَمَم أَوْ إثْم،
165
166
the misdeeds into which we have fallen, and the offenses which we have earned
أَوْ وَاقَعْنَا فِيهِ مِنْ ذَنْبِ وَاكْتَسَبْنَا فِيهِ مِنْ خَطِيئَة
166
167
purposefully or in forgetfulness, wronging ourselves thereby or violating the respect due to others,
عَلَى تَعَمُّد مِنَّا أو عَلى نِسيانٍ ظَلَمنا فيه أنفُسَنا أَوِ انْتَهَكْنَا بِهِ حُرْمَةً مِنْ غَيْرِنَا
167
168
bless Muhammad and his Household, cover us over with Thy covering,
فَصَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ وَاسْتُرْنَا بِسِتْرِكَ،
168
169
pardon us through Thy pardoning,
وَاعْفُ عَنَّا بِعَفْوِكَ،
169
170
place us not before the eyes of the gloaters because of that,
وَلاَ تَنْصِبْنَا فِيهِ لاِعْيُنِ الشَّامِتِينَ،
170
171
stretch not toward us the tongues of the defamers,
وَلاَ تَبْسُطْ عَلَيْنَا فِيهِ أَلْسُنَ الطَّاعِنينَ،
171
172
and employ us in that which will alleviate and expiate
وَاسْتَعْمِلْنَا بِمَا يَكُونُ حِطَّةً وَكَفَّارَةً
172
173
whatever Thou disapprovest from us within it through Thy clemency which does not run out,
لِمَا أَنْكَرْتَ مِنَّا فِيهِ بِرَأْفَتِكَ الَّتِي لاَ تَنْفَدُ،
173
174
and Thy bounty which does not diminish!
وَفَضْلِكَ الَّذِي لا يَنْقُصُ.
174
175
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household,
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
175
176
redress our being afflicted by our month,
وَاجْبُرْ مُصِيبَتنَا بِشَهْرِنَا
176
177
bless us in this day of our festival and our fast-breaking,
وَبَارِكْ فِي يَوْمِ عِيْدِنَا وَفِطْرِنَا
177
178
make it one of the best of days that have passed over us, the greatest in attracting Thy pardon, and the most effacing toward sins,
وَاجْعَلْهُ مِنْ خَيْرِ يَوْم مَرَّ عَلَيْنَا أَجْلَبِهِ لِعَفْو، وَأَمْحَاهُ لِذَنْبِ،
178
179
and forgive us our sins, both the concealed and the public!
وَاغْفِرْ لَنا ما خَفِيَ مِنْ ذُنُوبِنَا وَمَا عَلَنَ.
179
180
O God, with the passing of this month make us pass forth from our offenses,
أللَّهُمَّ اسلَخْنَا بِانْسِلاَخِ هَذَا الشَّهْرِ مِنْ خَطَايَانَا
180
181
with its departure make us depart from our evil deeds,
وَأَخْرِجْنَا بُخُرُوجِهِ مِنْ سَيِّئاتِنَا
181
182
and appoint us thereby among its most felicitous people,
وَاجْعَلْنَا مِنْ أَسْعَدِ أَهْلِهِ بِهِ
182
183
the most plentiful of them in portion, and the fullest of them in share!
وَأَجْزَلِهِمْ قِسَمَاً فِيـهِ وَأَوْفَـرِهِمْ حَظّاً مِنْـهُ.
183
184
O God, when any person observes this month as it should be observed,
أللّهُمَّ وَمَنْ رَعَى حَقّ هَذَا الشَّهْرِ حَقَّ رِعَايَتِهِ
184
185
safeguards its inviolability as it should be safeguarded, attends to its bounds as they should be attended to,
وَحَفِظَ حُرْمَتَهُ حَقَّ حِفْظِهَا وَقَامَ بِحُدُودِهِ حَقَّ قِيَامِهَا،
185
186
fears its misdeeds as they should be feared, or seeks nearness to Thee with any act of nearness-seeking
وَأتَّقَى ذُنُوبَهُ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهَا أَوْ تَقَرَّبَ إلَيْكَ بِقُرْبَة
186
187
which makes incumbent upon him Thy good pleasure and bends toward him Thy mercy,
أَوْجَبَتْ رِضَاكَ لَهُ وَعَطَفَتْ رَحْمَتَكَ عَلَيْهِ،
187
188
give to us the like [of that] from Thy wealth
فَهَبْ لَنَا مِثْلَهُ مِنْ وُجْدِكَ
188
189
and bestow it upon us in multiples through Thy bounty,
وَأَعْطِنَا أَضْعَافَهُ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ
189
190
for Thy bounty does not diminish, Thy treasuries do not decrease but overflow,
فَإنَّ فَضْلَكَ، لا يَغِيْضُ وَإنَّ خَـزَائِنَكَ لا تَنْقُصُ، بَـلْ تَفِيضُ
190
191
the mines of Thy beneficence are not exhausted,
وَإنَّ مَعَـادِنَ إحْسَانِكَ لا تَفْنَى،
191
192
and Thy bestowal is the bestowal full of delight!
وَإنَّ عَطَاءَكَ لَلْعَطَآءُ الْمُهَنَّا،
192
193
O God, bless Muhammad and his Household
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد وَآلِهِ
193
194
and write for us the like of the wages of him who fasted in it
وَاكْتُبْ لَنَا مِثْلَ أجُورِ مَنْ صَامَهُ
194
195
or worshipped Thee within it until the Day of Resurrection!
أَوْ تَعَبَّدَ لَكَ فِيْهِ إلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ.
195
196
O God, we repent to Thee in our day of fast-breaking,
أللَّهُمَّ إنَّا نَتُوبُ إلَيْكَ فِي يَوْمِ فِطْرِنَا
196
197
which Thou hast appointed for the faithful a festival and a joy
الّذِي جَعَلْتَهُ لِلْمُؤْمِنِينَ عِيداً وَسُـرُوراً.
197
198
and for the people of Thy creed a time of assembly and gathering, from every misdeed we did,
وَلأِهْلِ مِلَّتِكَ مَجْمَعاً وَمُحْتشداً مِنْ كُلِّ ذَنْب أَذْنَبْنَاهُ،
198
199
ill work we sent ahead, or evil thought we secretly conceived,
أَوْ سُوْء أَسْلَفْنَاهُ، أَوْ خَاطِرِ شَرٍّ أَضْمَرْنَاهُ،
199
200
the repentance of one who does not harbour a return to sin
تَوْبَةَ مَنْ لاَ يَنْطَوِيْ عَلَى رُجُوع إلَى ذَنْب
200
201
and who afterwards will not go back to offense,
وَلا يَعُودُ بَعْدَهَا فِي خَطِيئَة،
201
202
an unswerving repentance rid of doubt and wavering.
تَوْبَةً نَصوحاً خَلَصَتْ مِنَ الشَّكِّ وَالارْتِيَابِ،
202
203
So accept it from us, be pleased with us, and fix us within it!
فَتَقَبَّلْهَا مِنَّا وَارْضَ عَنَّا وَثَبِّتنَا عَلَيْهَا.
203
204
God, provide us with fear of the threatened punishment
أللَّهُمَّ ارْزُقْنَا خَوْفَ عِقَابِ الْوَعِيدِ،
204
205
and yearning for the promised reward, so that we may find the pleasure of that for which we supplicate Thee
وَشَوْقَ ثَوَابِ الْمَوْعُودِ حَتّى نَجِدَ لَذَّةَ مَا نَدْعُوكَ بِهِ،
205
206
and the sorrow of that from which we seek sanctuary in Thee!
وكَأْبَةَ مَا نَسْتَجِيْرُكَ مِنْهُ،
206
207
And place us with Thee among the repenters, those upon whom Thou hast made Thy love obligatory
وَاجْعَلْنَا عِنْدَكَ مِنَ التَّوَّابِيْنَ الَّذِينَ أَوْجَبْتَ لَهُمْ مَحَبَّتَكَ،
207
208
and from whom Thou hast accepted the return to obeying Thee! O Most Just of the just!
وَقَبِلْتَ مِنْهُمْ مُرَاجَعَةَ طَاعَتِكَ، يَا أَعْدَلَ الْعَادِلِينَ.
208
209
O God, show forbearance toward our fathers and our mothers and all the people of our religion,
أللَّهُمَّ تَجَاوَزْ عَنْ آبآئِنَا وَأُمَّهَاتِنَا وَأَهْلِ دِيْنِنَا جَمِيعاً
209
210
those who have gone and those who will pass by, until the Day of Resurrection!
مَنْ سَلَفَ مِنْهُمْ وَمَنْ غَبَرَ إلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ.
210
211
O God, bless our prophet Muhammad and his Household,
أللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّد نَبِيِّنَا وَآلِهِ،
211
212
as Thou hast blessed Thy angels brought nigh,
كَمَا صَلَّيْتَ عَلَى مَلائِكَتِكَ الْمُقَرَّبِينَ.
212
213
bless him and his Household,
وَصَلِّ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ،
213
214
as Thou hast blessed Thy prophets sent out,
كَمَا صَلَّيْتَ عَلَى أَنْبِيَائِكَ الْمُرْسَلِينَ،
214
215
bless him and his Household, as Thou hast blessed Thy righteous servants
وَصَلِّ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ، كَمَا صَلَّيْتَ عَلَى عِبَادِكَ الصَّالِحِينَ،
215
216
- and better than that, O Lord of the worlds!
وَأَفْضَلَ مِنْ ذَلِكَ يَا رَبَّ الْعَالَمِينَ،
216
217
a blessing whose benediction will reach us, whose benefit will attain to us,
صَلاَةً تَبْلُغُنَا بَرَكَتُهَا، وَيَنَالُنَا نَفْعُهَا،
217
218
and through which our supplication may be granted!
وَيُسْتَجَابُ لَهَا دُعَاؤُنَا،
218
219
Thou art the most generous of those who are beseeched,
إنَّكَ أكْرَمُ مَنْ رُغِبَ إلَيْهِ
219
220
the most sufficient of those in whom confidence is had,
وَأكْفَى مَنْ تُوُكِّلَ عَلَيْهِ
220
221
the most bestowing of those from whom bounty is asked,
وَأَعْطَى مَنْ سُئِلَ مِنْ فَضْلِهِ،
221
222
and Thou art powerful over everything!
وَأَنْتَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْء قَدِيرٌ.
222

 
O God, O He who desires no repayment!
O He who shows no remorse at bestowal!
O He who rewards not His servant tit for tat!

Thy kindness is a new beginning,
Thy pardon gratuitous bounty,181
Thy punishment justice,
Thy decree a choice for the best!

If Thou bestowest,
Thou stainest not Thy bestowal with obligation,
and if Thou withholdest,
Thou withholdest not in transgression.

Thou showest gratitude to him who thanks Thee,
while Thou hast inspired him to thank Thee.

Thou rewardest him who praises Thee,
while though Thou hast taught him Thy praise.

Thou coverest him whom,
if Thou willed,
Thou wouldst expose,
and Thou art generous toward him from whom,
if Thou willed,
Thou wouldst withhold.
Both are worthy of Thy exposure and withholding,
but Thou hast
founded Thy acts upon gratuitous bounty,
channelled Thy power into forbearance,
received him who disobeyed Thee with clemency,
and disregarded him who intended wrongdoing against himself.
Thou awaitest their turning back without haste
and refrainest from rushing them toward repentance,
so that the perisher among them may not perish
because of Thee
and the wretched may not be wretched through
Thy favour,
but only after Thy prolonged excusing him
and successive arguments against him,
as an act of generosity through Thy pardon, O Generous,
and an act of kindliness through Thy tenderness, O Clement!

It is Thou who hast opened for Thy servants
a door to Thy pardon,
which Thou hast named 'repentance'.
Thou hast placed upon that door
a pointer from Thy revelation,
lest they stray from it:
Thou hast said (blessed are Thy names),
Repent toward God with unswerving repentance!
It may be that Thy Lord will acquit of your evil deeds
and will admit you into gardens
beneath which rivers flow,
upon the day when God will not degrade the Prophet
and those who have faith along with him,
their light running before them
and on their right hands,
and they say:
 

'Our Lord, complete for us our light, and forgive us!
Surely Thou art powerful over everything.'182
What is the excuse
of him who remains heedless of entering that house
after the opening of the door
and the setting up of the pointer?

It is Thou who hast raised the price against Thyself
to the advantage of Thy servants,
desiring their profit in their trade with Thee,
their triumph through reaching Thee,
and their increase on account of Thee,
for Thou hast said
(blessed is Thy Name and high art Thou exalted),
Whoso brings a good deed
shall have ten the like of it,
and whoso brings an evil deed
shall only be recompensed the like of it.183

Thou hast said,
The likeness of those who expend their wealth
in the way of God
is as the likeness of a grain of corn
that sprouts seven ears,
in every ear a hundred grains;
so God multiplies unto whom He wills.184
Thou hast said,
Who is he that will lend to God a good loan,
and He will multiply it for him manifold?185
And Thou hast sent down in the Qur'an
similar verses on the multiplying of good deeds.

It is Thou who hast pointed them
through Thy speech from Thy Unseen
and Thy encouragement in which lies their good fortune
toward that which
- hadst Thou covered it from them -
their eyes would not have perceived,
their ears would not have heard,
and their imaginations would not have grasped,
 

for Thou hast said,
Remember Me
and I will remember you
be thankful to Me,
and be you not thankless towards Me!186
Thou hast said,
If you are thankful,
surely I will increase you,
but if you are thankless,
My chastisement is surely terrible;187

And Thou hast said,
Supplicate Me
and I will respond to you,
surely those who wax too proud to worship Me
shall enter Gehenna utterly abject.188
Hence Thou hast named supplicating Thee 'worship'
and refraining from it 'waxing proud',
and Thou hast threatened that the refraining from it
would yield entrance into Gehenna in utter abjection.

So they remember Thee for Thy kindness,
they thank Thee for Thy bounty,
they supplicate Thee by Thy command,
and they donate for Thee
in order to seek Thy increase;
in all this lies their deliverance from Thy wrath
and their triumph through Thy good pleasure.

Were any creature himself to direct another creature
to the like of that to which
Thou Thyself hast directed Thy servants,
he would be described by beneficence,
qualified by kindness,
and praised by every tongue.
So to Thee belongs praise
as long as there is found a way to praise Thee
and as long as there remains for praising
words by which Thou may be praised
and meanings which may be spent in praise!

O He who shows Himself praiseworthy to His servants
through beneficence and bounty,
flooding them with kindness and graciousness!
How much Thy favour has been spread about among us,
Thy kindness lavished upon us,
and Thy goodness singled out for us!

Thou hast guided us to
Thy religion which Thou hast chosen,
Thy creed with which Thou art pleased,
and Thy path which Thou hast made smooth,
and Thou hast shown us proximity to Thee
and arrival at Thy generosity!

O God, among the choicest of those duties
and the most special of those obligations
Thou hast appointed the month of Ramadan,
which Thou hast singled out from other months,
chosen from among all periods and eras,
and preferred over all times of the year
through the Qur'an and the Light
which Thou sent down within it,
the faith
which Thou multiplied by means of it,
the fasting
which Thou obligated therein,
the standing in prayer
which Thou encouraged at its time,
and the Night of Decree
which Thou magnified therein,
the night which is better than a thousand months.189

Through it Thou hast preferred us
over the other communities
and through its excellence Thou hast chosen us
to the exclusion of the people of the creeds.
We fasted by Thy command in its daylight,
we stood in prayer with Thy help in its night,
presenting ourselves by its fasting and its standing
to the mercy which Thou hast held up before us,
and we found through it the means to Thy reward.
And Thou art full of what is sought from Thee,
munificent with what is asked of Thy bounty,
and near to him who strives for Thy nearness.

This month stood among us
in a standing place of praise,
accompanied us
with the companionship of one approved,
and profited us
with the most excellent profit of the world's creatures.
Then it parted from us at the completion of its time,
the end of its term,
and the fulfilment of its number.

So we bid farewell to it with the farewell of one
whose parting pains us,
whose leaving fills us with gloom and loneliness,
and to whom we have come to owe
a safeguarded claim,
an observed inviolability,
and a discharged right.
We say:
Peace be upon thee,
O greatest month of God!
O festival of His friends!

Peace be upon thee,
O most noble of accompanying times!
O best of months in days and hours!

Peace be upon thee,
month in which
expectations come near
and good works are scattered about!

Peace be upon thee,
comrade
who is great in worth when found
and who torments through absence when lost,
anticipated friend
whose parting gives pain!

Peace be upon thee,
familiar
who brought comfort in coming,
thus making happy,
who left loneliness in going,
thus giving anguish!

Peace be upon thee,
neighbour in whom
hearts became tender
and sins became few!

Peace be upon thee,
helper who aided against Satan,
companion who made easy the paths of good-doing!

Peace be upon thee -
How many became freedmen of God within thee!
How happy those who observed the respect due to thee!

Peace be upon thee -
How many the sins thou erased!
How many the kinds of faults thou covered over!

Peace be upon thee -
How drawn out wert thou for the sinners!
How awesome wert thou in the hearts of the faithful!

Peace be upon thee,
month with which no days compete!

Peace be upon thee,
month which is peace in all affairs!

Peace be upon thee,
thou whose companionship is not disliked,
thou whose friendly mixing is not blamed!

Peace be upon thee,
just as thou hast entered upon us with blessings
and cleansed us of the defilement of offenses!

Peace be upon thee -
Thou art not bid farewell in annoyance
nor is thy fasting left in weariness!

Peace be upon thee,
object of seeking before thy time,
object of sorrow before thy passing!

Peace be upon thee -
How much evil was turned away from us through thee!
How much good flowed upon us because of thee!

Peace be upon thee
and upon the Night of Decree
which is better than a thousand months!190

Peace be upon thee -
How much we craved thee yesterday!
How intensely we shall yearn for thee tomorrow!

Peace be upon thee
and upon thy bounty
which has now been made unlawful to us
and upon thy blessings gone by
which have now been stripped away from us!

O God,
we are the people of this month.
Through it Thou hast ennobled us
and given us success
because of Thy kindness,
while the wretched are ignorant of its time.
Made unlawful to them is its bounty
because of their wretchedness.

Thou art the patron
of the knowledge of it by which Thou hast preferred us,
and its prescribed practices to which Thou hast guided us.
We have undertaken, through Thy giving success,
its fasting and its standing in prayer,
but with shortcomings,
and we have performed little of much.

O God, so to Thee belongs praise,
in admission of evil doing
and confession of negligence,
and to Thee belongs
remorse firmly knitted in our hearts
and seeking of pardon sincerely uttered by our tongues.
Reward us,
in spite of the neglect that befell us in this month,
with a reward through which
we may reach the bounty desired from it
and win the varieties of its craved stores!

Make incumbent upon us Thy pardon
for our falling short of Thy right in this month
and make our lives which lie before us
reach the coming month of Ramadan!
Once Thou hast made us reach it,
help us perform the worship of which Thou art worthy,
cause us to undertake the obedience which Thou deservest,
and grant us righteous works
that we may fulfil Thy right
in these two months of the months of time.191

O God, as for the small and large sins
which we have committed in this our month,
the misdeeds into which we have fallen,
and the offenses which we have earned
purposefully or in forgetfulness,
wronging ourselves thereby
or violating the respect due to others,
bless Muhammad and his Household,
cover us over with Thy covering,
pardon us through Thy pardoning,
place us not before the eyes of the gloaters because of that,
stretch not toward us the tongues of the defamers,
and employ us in that which will alleviate and expiate
whatever Thou disapprovest from us within it
through Thy clemency which does not run out,
and Thy bounty which does not diminish!

O God, bless Muhammad and his Household,
redress our being afflicted by our month,192
bless us in this day of our festival and our fast-breaking,
make it one of the best of days that have passed over us,
the greatest in attracting Thy pardon,
and the most effacing toward sins,
and forgive us our sins, both the concealed and the public!

O God, with the passing of this month
make us pass forth from our offenses,
with its departure
make us depart from our evil deeds,
and appoint us thereby among its most felicitous people,
the most plentiful of them in portion,
and the fullest of them in share!

O God,  when any person observes this month as it should be observed,
safeguards its inviolability as it should be safeguarded,
attends to its bounds as they should be attended to,
fears its misdeeds as they should be feared,
or seeks nearness to Thee with any act of nearness-seeking
which
makes incumbent upon him Thy good pleasure
and bends toward him Thy mercy,
give to us the like [of that]193 from Thy wealth
and bestow it upon us in multiples through Thy bounty,
for Thy bounty does not diminish,
Thy treasuries do not decrease but overflow,
the mines of Thy beneficence are not exhausted,
and Thy bestowal is the bestowal full of delight!

O God, bless Muhammad and his Household
and write for us the like of the wages
of him who fasted in it
or worshipped Thee within it
until the Day of Resurrection!

O God, we repent to Thee in our day of fast-breaking,
which Thou hast appointed
for the faithful
a festival and a joy
and for the people of Thy creed
a time of assembly and gathering,
from every misdeed we did,
ill work we sent ahead,
or evil thought we secretly conceived,
the repentance of one who does not harbour a return to sin
and who afterwards will not go back to offense,
an unswerving repentance rid of doubt and wavering.
So accept it from us,
be pleased with us,
and fix us within it!

O God,
provide us with fear of the threatened punishment
and yearning for the promised reward,
so that we may find
the pleasure of that for which we supplicate Thee
and the sorrow of that from which we seek sanctuary in Thee!

And place us with Thee among the repenters,
those upon whom Thou hast made Thy love obligatory
and from whom Thou hast accepted
the return to obeying Thee!194
O Most Just of the just!

O God,
show forbearance toward our fathers and our mothers
and all the people of our religion,
those who have gone and those who will pass by,
until the Day of Resurrection!

O God,
bless our prophet Muhammad and his Household,
as Thou hast blessed Thy angels brought nigh,
bless him and his Household,
as Thou hast blessed Thy prophets sent out,
bless him and his Household,
as Thou hast blessed Thy righteous servants
- and better than that, O Lord of the worlds! -
a blessing whose benediction will reach us,
whose benefit will attain to us,
and through which our supplication may be granted!
Thou art the most generous of those who are beseeched,
the most sufficient of those in whom confidence is had,
the most bestowing of those from whom bounty is asked,
and Thou art powerful over everything!

It is recommended to bid farewell to the month of Ramazan through the supplications dedicated to this purpose and are mentioned by al-Kulayniy, al-Saduq, al-Mufed, al-Tusiy, and Sayyid Ibn Tawus—may Allah be pleased with them all. Yet, the best supplication in this respect may be the forty-fifth supplication of the al-Sahefah al-Kamilah al-Sajjadiyyah, by Imam Ali ibn Hussain (as)which is as follows:

if You withhold, You withhold not in transgression.

You are generous toward him from whom, if You willed, You wouldst withhold.

channeled Your power into forbearance,

received him who disobeyed You with clemency, and

disregarded him who intended wrongdoing against himself.

refrainest from rushing them toward repentance,

so that the perisher among them may not perish because of You and

the wretched may not be wretched through Your favor,

but only after Your prolonged excusing him

and successive arguments against him,

wa faw-zahum bil-wif¡dati `alay-ka waz-z¢¡dati mink

 وفوْزهُمْ بِالْوِفادةِ عليْك والزِّيادةِ مِنْك

for You have said (blessed is Your Name and high art You exalted),

faqul-ta tab¡raka as-muka wa t¡'alay-ta:

 فقُلْت تبارك اسْمُك وتعاليْت:

(whoso brings a good deed shall have ten the like of it, and

 (منْ جاء بِالْحسنةِ فلهُ عشْرُ أمْثالِها

those brings an evil deed shall only be recompensed the like of it). You have said,

 ومنْ جاء بِالسّيِّئةِ فلا يُجْزى إِلاَّ مِثْلها) وقُلْت:

(The likeness of those who expend their wealth in the way of Allah is as the likeness of a grain of corn that sprouts seven ears, in every ear a hundred grains; so Allah multiplies unto whom He wills).

(mathalul-ladh¢na yunfiq£na am-w¡lahum f¢ sab¢lil-l¡h¢ kamathali ¦ab-batin ambatat sab-`a san¡bila f¢ kul-li sumbulatim-mia-atu ¦ab-batiw-wal-l¡h£ yu¤¡i'fu limay-yash¡-u)

You have said: (Who is he that will lend to Allah a good loan, and He will multiply it for him manifold?)

waqul-ta: (man dh¡l-ladh¢ yuq-ri¤ul-l¡ha qar-¤ana ¦asanana fayu¤¡i'fah£ lah£ a¤-`¡fana kath¢ratah)

وقُلْت: (منْ ذا الّذِي يُقْرِضُ اللّه قرْضاً حسناً فيُضاعِفهُ لهُ أضْعافاً كثِيرةً)

And You have sent down in the Quran similar verses on the multiplying of good deeds.

 وما أنْزلْت مِن نظائِرِهِنّ فِي الْقُرْآنِ مِنْ تضاعِيفِ الْحسناتِ

It is You who hast pointed them through Your speech from Your Unseen and Your encouragement in which lies their good fortune toward that which— hadst You covered it from them—

their eyes would not have perceived,

their ears would not have heard, and

wa lam tai'h¢e as-m¡`uhum-

their imaginations would not have grasped,

wa lam tal-¦aq-h£ aw-h¡muhum-

 ولمْ تلْحقْهُ أوْهامُهُمْ فقُلْت:

for You have said,

faqul-ta:

 

( Remember Me, and I will remember you

(udh-kur£n¢e adh-kur-kum-

 (اذْكُرُونِي أذْكُرْكُمْ

be thankful to Me, and be you not thankless towards Me!) You have said,

wa ash-kur£ l¢ wa l¡ tak-fur£n) waqul-ta:

( If you are thankful, surely I will increase you,

but if you are thankless, My chastisement is surely terrible); And You have said,

ولئِنْ كفرْتُمْ إِنّ عذابِي لشدِيدٌ) وقُلْت:

(Supplicate Me, and I will respond to you; surely those who wax too proud to worship Me shall enter GAHENNAM utterly abject).

 (ادْعُونِي أسْتجِبْ لكُمْ إِنّ الّذِين يسْتكْبِرُون عنْ عِبادتِي سيدْخُلُون جهنّم داخِرِين )

Hence You have named supplicating You 'worship'

fasam-may-ta du`a¡-aka i'b¡dah

 فسمّيْت دُعاءك عِبادةً

and refraining from it 'waxing proud', and

wa tar-kah£ as-tik-b¡r¡

 وترْكهُ اسْتِكْباراً

You have threatened that the refraining from it would yield entrance into GAHENNAM in utterLY abject.

wa taw¡'-`at-ta `al¡ tar-kih¢ dukh£la jahan-nama d¡khir¢n

 وتوعّدْت على ترْكِهِ دُخُول جهنّم داخِرِين

So they remember You for Your kindness,

 فذكرُوك بِمنِّك

they thank You for Your bounty,

wa shakar£ka bifa¤-lik

 وشكرُوك بِفضْلِك

they supplicate You by Your command, and

their triumph through Your good pleasure.
