Verily Allah is ever Merciful to you.”

وَلَيْسَ مِنْ صِفَاتِكَ يَا سَيِّدِي
wa laysa min sifatika ya sayyidi
It is not Your habit, O my Chief,

أَنْ تَأْمُرَ بِٱلسُّؤَالِ وَتَمْنَعَ ٱلْعَطِيَّةَ
an ta'mura bissu'ali wa tamna`a al`atiyyata
that You instruct us to implore You and then You stop giving us,

وَأَنْتَ ٱلْمَنَّانُ بِٱلْعَطِيَّاتِ عَلَىٰ أَهْلِ مَمْلَكَتِكَ
wa anta almannanu bil`atiyyati `ala ahli mamlakatika
while You are the All-benefactor Who confers upon the people of Your Kingdom with (innumerable) donations

وَٱلْعَائِدُ عَلَيْهِمْ بِتَحَنُّنِ رَأْفَتِكَ
wal`a'idu `alayhim bitahannuni ra'fatika
and You are the All-generous Who meets them with the kindness of Your compassion.

إِلٰهِي رَبَّيْتَنِي فِي نِعَمِكَ وَإِحْسَانِكَ صَغِيراً
ilahi rabbaytani fi ni`amika wa ihsanika saghiran
O my God, You brought me up amid Your bounties and favors when I was little

وَنَوَّهْتَ بِٱسْمِي كَبِيراً
wa nawwahta bismi kabiran
and You have mentioned me when I have grown up.

فَيَا مَنْ رَبَّانِي فِي ٱلدُّنْيَا بِإِحْسَانِهِ
faya man rabbani fi alddunya bi'ihsanihi
So, O He Who brought me up in this world with His bounties,

وَتَفَضُّلِهِ وَنِعَمِهِ
wa tafaddulihi wa ni`amihi
favors, and graces,

وَأَشَارَ لِي فِي ٱلآخِرَةِ إِلَىٰ عَفْوِهِ وَكَرَمِهِ
wa ashara li fi al-akhirati ila `afwihi wa karamihi
and, in the Hereafter, will have referred to me with His amnesty and generosity!

مَعْرِفَتِي يَا مَوْلاَيَ دَلِيلِي عَلَيْكَ
ma`rifati ya mawlaya dalili `alayka
My acquaintance with You, O my Lord, is the path taking me to You

وَحُبِّي لَكَ شَفِيعِي إِلَيْكَ
wa hubbi laka shafi`i ilayka
and my love for You is the intermediary between You and me.

وَأَنَا وَاثِقٌ مِنْ دَلِيلِي بِدَلاَلَتِكَ
wa ana wathiqun min dalili bidalalatika
I am sure of the path to which You have lead me

وَسَاكِنٌ مِنْ شَفِيعِي إِلَىٰ شَفَاعَتِكَ
wa sakinun min shafi`i ila shafa`atika
and I rely upon my intermediary’s success before You.

أَدْعُوكَ يَا سَيِّدِي بِلِسَانٍ قَدْ أَخْرَسَهُ ذَنْبُهُ
ad`uka ya sayyidi bilisanin qad akhrasahu dhanbuhu
I pray You, O my Chief, with a tongue muted by its sins.

رَبِّ أُنَاجِيكَ بِقَلْبٍ قَدْ أَوْبَقَهُ جُرْمُهُ
rabbi unajika biqalbin qad awbaqahu jurmuhu
O Lord! I confidentially speak to You with a heart degraded by its offenses.

أَدْعُوكَ يَا رَبِّ رَاهِباً رَاغِباً
ad`uka ya rabbi rahiban raghiban
I pray You, O Lord, with terror, desire,

رَاجِياً خَائِفاً
rajiyan kha'ifan
hope, and fear.

إِذَا رَأَيْتُ مَوْلاَيَ ذُنُوبِي فَزِعْتُ
idha ra'aytu mawlaya dhunubi fazi`tu
Whenever I think of my sins, O my Master, I panic,

وَإِذَا رَأَيْتُ كَرَمَكَ طَمِعْتُ
wa idha ra'aytu karamaka tami`tu
but when I think of Your generosity, I feel desirous (for Your pardon).

فَإِنْ عَفَوْتَ فَخَيْرُ رَاحِمٍ
fa'in `afawta fakhayru rahimin
Therefore, if You forgive me, You are already the best of those who show mercy,

وَإِنْ عَذَّبْتَ فَغَيْرُ ظَالِمٍ
wa'in `adhdhabta faghayru zalimin
and If You punish me, You are then not wronging me.

حُجَّتِي يَا اللَّهُ فِي جُرْأَتِي عَلَىٰ مَسْأَلَتِكَ
hujjati ya allahu fi jur'ati `ala mas'alatika
Yet, it is Your munificence and Your generosity, O Allah, that gave me the courage to pray You,

مَعَ إِتْيَانِي مَا تَكْرَهُ جُودُكَ وَكَرَمُكَ
ma`a ityani ma takrahu juduka wa karamuka
despite that I have committed things that You dislike.

وَعُدَّتِي فِي شِدَّتِي مَعَ قِلَّةِ حَيَائِي رَأْفَتُكَ وَرَحْمَتُكَ
wa `uddati fi shiddati ma`a qillati haya'i ra'fatuka wa rahmatuka
It is Your kindness and mercy that I use as my means during misfortunes inflicting me despite my shamelessness.

وَقَدْ رَجَوْتُ أَنْ لاَ تَخِيبَ بَيْنَ ذَيْنِ وَذَيْنِ مُنْيَتِي
wa qad rajawtu an la takhiba bayna dhayni wa dhayni munyati
I thus hope that my expectation will not be disappointed amid these two matters.

فَحَقِّقْ رَجَائِي
fahaqqiq raja'i
So, make my hopes become real

وَٱسْمَعْ دُعَائِي
wasma` du`a'i
and answer my prayers.

يَا خَيْرَ مَنْ دَعَاهُ دَاعٍ
ya khayra man da`ahu da`in
O Greatest Besought One that has been ever besought,

وَأَفْضَلَ مَنْ رَجَاهُ رَاجٍ
wa afdala man rajahu rajin
and the Most Favorable Hoped One!

عَظُمَ يَا سَيِّدِي أَمَلِي وَسَاءَ عَمَلِي
`azuma ya sayyidi amali wa sa'a `amali
My expectation, O my Chief, has been great but my deed has been bad.

فَأَعْطِنِي مِنْ عَفْوِكَ بِمِقْدَارِ أَمَلِي
fa'a`tini min `afwika bimiqdari amali
So, grant me Your pardon as much as my expectation,

وَلاَ تُؤَاخِذْنِي بِأَسْوَءِ عَمَلِي
wa la tu'akhidhni bi'aswa'i `amali
and do not punish me for the worst of my deed.

فَإِنَّ كَرَمَكَ يَجِلُّ عَنْ مُجَازَاةِ ٱلْمُذْنِبِينَ
fa'inna karamaka yajillu `an mujazati almudhnibina
Verily, Your generosity is too great to be compared to the penalty of the guilty,

وَحِلْمَكَ يَكْبُرُ عَنْ مُكَافَأَةِ ٱلْمُقَصِّرِينَ
wa hilmaka yakburu `an mukafa'ati almuqassirina
and Your tolerance is too immense to be compared to the punishment of the negligent.

وَأَنَا يَا سَيِّدِي عَائِذٌ بِفَضْلِكَ
wa ana ya sayyidi `a'idhun bifadlika
I, O my Chief, am seeking refuge with Your benevolence,

هَارِبٌ مِنْكَ إِلَيْكَ
haribun minka ilayka
fleeing from You towards You,

مُتَنَجِّزٌ مَا وَعَدْتَ مِنَ ٱلصَّفْحِ عَمَّنْ أَحْسَنَ بِكَ ظَنّاً
mutanajjizun ma wa`adta min alssafhi `amman ahsana bika zannan
hoping for the amnesty that You have promised to confer upon one who keeps good idea about You.

وَمَا أَنَا يَا رَبِّ وَمَا خَطَرِي
wa ma ana ya rabbi wa ma khatari
What am I? O Lord! What importance do I have?

هَبْنِي بِفَضْلِكَ
habni bifadlika
Do me a favor out of Your benevolence

وَتَصَدَّقْ عَلَيَّ بِعَفْوِكَ
wa tasaddaq `alayya bi`afwika
and be charitable to me by means of pardoning me.

أَيْ رَبِّ جَلِّلْنِي بِسِتْرِكَ
ay rabbi jallilni bisitrika
O my Lord! Cover me with Your protective covering

وَٱعْفُ عَنْ تَوْبِيخِي بِكَرَمِ وَجْهِكَ
wa`fu `an tawbikhi bikarami wajhika
and overlook reproaching me out of the generosity of Your Face.

فَلَوِ ٱطَّلَعَ ٱلْيَوْمَ عَلَىٰ ذَنْبِي غَيْرُكَ مَا فَعَلْتُهُ
falaw ittala`a alyawma `ala dhanbi ghayruka ma fa`altuhu
In fact, if anyone other than You has watched me while committing these sins, I may not commit them.

وَلَوْ خِفْتُ تَعْجِيلَ ٱلْعُقُوبَةِ لاﹾجْتَنَبْتُهُ
wa law khiftu ta`jila al`uqubati lajtanabtuhu
Had I anticipated immediateness of punishment, I might have avoided doing them.

لاَ لأَنَّكَ أَهْوَنُ ٱلنَّاظِرِينَ إِلَيَّ
la li'annaka ahwanu alnnazirina ilayya
Yet, this does not mean that You are the least important of those who watch over me

وَأَخَفُّ ٱلْمُطَّلِعِينَ عَلَيَّ
wa akhaffu almuttali`ina `alayya
or You are the least weighty of those who observe me.

بَلْ لأَنَّكَ يَا رَبِّ خَيْرُ ٱلسَّاتِرِينَ
bal li'annaka ya rabbi khayru alssatirina
Rather, this is because You, O my Lord, are the best of those who cover up (one’s defects),

وَأَحْكَمُ ٱلْحَاكِمِينَ
wa ahkamu alhakimina
the wisest of those who judge,

وَأَكْرَمُ ٱلأَكْرَمِينَ
wa akramu al-akramina
the most generous of those who act generously,

سَتَّارُ ٱلْعُيُوبِ
sattaru al`uyubi
the concealer of defects,

غَفَّارُ ٱلذُّنُوبِ
ghaffaru aldhdhunubi
the Forgiver of sins,

عَلاَّمُ ٱلْغُيُوبِ
`allamu alghuyubi
and the Knower of the unseen.

تَسْتُرُ ٱلذَّنْبَ بِكَرَمِكَ
tasturu aldhdhanba bikaramika
You conceal the defects out of Your liberality

وَتُؤَخِّرُ ٱلْعُقُوبَةَ بِحِلْمِكَ
wa tu'akhkhiru al`uqubata bihilmika
and put off punishment because of Your forbearance.

فَلَكَ ٱلْحَمْدُ عَلَىٰ حِلْمِكَ بَعْدَ عِلْمِكَ
falaka alhamdu `ala hilmika ba`da `ilmika
Hence, all praise be to You, for You act tolerably although You have full knowledge

وَعَلَىٰ عَفْوِكَ بَعْدَ قُدْرَتِكَ
wa `ala `afwika ba`da qudratika
and for Your pardon even though You have the absolute authority.

وَيَحْمِلُنِي وَيُجَرِّئُنِي عَلَىٰ مَعْصِيَتِكَ حِلْمُكَ عَنِّي
wa yahmiluni wa yujarri'uni `ala ma`siyatika hilmuka `anni
It is Your forbearance with me that gives me latitude and makes me dare to break Your laws.

وَيَدْعُونِي إِلَىٰ قِلَّةِ ٱلْحَيَاءِ سِتْرُكَ عَلَيَّ
wa yad`uni ila qillati alhaya'i sitruka `alayya
It is Your concealing my faults that makes me act shamelessly before You.

وَيُسْرِعُنِي إِلَىٰ ٱلتَوَثُّبِ عَلَىٰ مَحَارِمِكَ مَعْرِفَتِي بِسَعَةِ رَحْمَتِكَ وَعَظِيمِ عَفْوِكَ
wa yusri`uni ila alttawaththubi `ala maharimika ma`rifati bias`ati rahmatika wa `azimi `afwika
It is my acquaintance with the broadness of Your mercy and the magnitude of Your pardon that make me hurry to violate that which You have deemed forbidden.

In my salvation from Your punishment, I do not rely upon my deeds;

بَلْ بِفَضْلِكَ عَلَيْنَا
bal bifadlika `alayna
rather, I depend on Your liberal generosity to us,

لأَنَّكَ أَهْلُ ٱلتَّقْوَىٰ وَأَهْلُ ٱلْمَغْفِرَةِ
li'annaka ahlu alttaqwa wa ahlu almaghfirati
because You are verily the Lord of righteousness and the Lord of forgiveness.

تُبْدِئُ بِٱلإِحْسَانِ نِعَماً
tubdi'u bil-ihsani ni`aman
You take the initiative in doing good out of Your graciousness

We thus do not know which of Your graces we should thank:

أَجَمِيلَ مَا تَنْشُرُ أَمْ قَبِيحَ مَا تَسْتُرُ
ajamila ma tanshuru am qabiha ma tasturu
should it be the handsome elegance that you spread over us, or our offensive deeds that you conceal?

أَمْ عَظِيمَ مَا أَبْلَيْتَ وَأَوْلَيْتَ
am `azima ma ablayta wa awlayta
Or should it be the fabulous favor that You grant and present,

أَمْ كَثِيرَ مَا مِنْهُ نَجَّيْتَ وَعَافَيْتَ
am kathira ma minhu najjayta wa `afayta
or the numerous misfortunes from which You have saved and relieved?

You are the All-benevolent and we are the malevolent.

There is no period that may be longer than Your tolerance.

وَمَا قَدْرُ أَعْمَالِنَا فِي جَنْبِ نِعَمِكَ
wa ma qadaru a`malina fi janbi ni`amika
What value remains for our deeds if compared to Your favors?

wa kayfa nastakthiru a`malan nuqabilu biha karamaka
How can we ever deem much any deeds if compared to Your generosity?

This is because I have full acquaintance with Your (indescribable) generosity and bounty.

وَأَنْتَ ٱلْفَاعِلُ لِمَا تَشَاءُ

Verily, You do whatever You will.

aw la`allaka biqillati haya'i minka jazaytani
Or, perhaps, You have penalized me for my shamelessness!

فَإِنْ عَفَوْتَ يَا رَبِّ فَطَالَمَا عَفَوْتَ عَنِ ٱلْمُذْنِبِينَ قَبْلِي
fa'in `afawta ya rabbi fatalama `afawta `an almudhnibina qabli

wa min `uqubati alma`asi jannabtani hatta ka'annaka istahyaytani
You have not applied to me the punishments of committing acts of disobedience (to You) as if You are ashamed to face me.

ilahi lam a`sika hina `asaytuka wa ana birububiyyatika jahidun
O my God, as I disobeyed You, I have never denied Your Lordship,

have never belittled Your ordains,

وَلاَ لِعُقُوبَتِكَ مُتَعَرِّضٌ

لَكِنْ خَطِيئَةٌ عَرَضَتْ وَسَوَّلَتْ لِي نَفْسِي
lakin khati'atun `aradat wa sawwalat li nafsi
Nevertheless, sins showed themselves desirable before me, my self commended to me,

wa ghalabani hawaya
my whim overwhelmed me,

وَأَعَانَنِي عَلَيْهَا شِقْوَتِي
wa a`anani `alayha shiqwati
my impudence helped me accordingly,

وَغَرَّنِي سِتْرُكَ ٱلْمُرْخَىٰ عَلَيَّ
wa gharrani sitruka almurkha `alayya
and I have been deceived by Your covering that You have laid on me.

فَقَدْ عَصَيْتُكَ وَخَالَفْتُكَ بِجُهْدِي
faqad `asaytuka wa khalaftuka bijuhdi
So, I have exerted efforts in violating Your orders and disobeying You.

فَٱلآنَ مِنْ عَذَابِكَ مَنْ يَسْتَنْقِذُنِي
fal'ana min `adhabika man yastanqidhuni
Now, who can ever save me from Your chastisement?

wa min aydi alkhusama'i ghadan man yukhallisuni
Tomorrow, who can save me from the hands of my rivals?

Had it not been for Your generosity, the breadth of Your mercy,

وَنَهْيِكَ إِيَّايَ عَنِ ٱلَّذِي لْقُنُوطِ لَقَنَطْتُ عِنْدَمَا أَتَذَكَّرُهَا
wa nahyika iyyaya `an alqunuti laqanattu `indama atadhakkaruha

Eating Before the Dawn (Suhur)

It is highly advisable not to neglect having the daybreak meal (suhur) even if its a single date or a drink of water.The best food in suhoor is fine flour and dates.
Hadith on importance of eating at suhoor
-"Almighty Allah and His angels bless those who seek forgiveness at the last hours of night and have the daybreak meal."
-“Eat before dawn even if it be only a drink of water, because Allah sends salutations upon those who eat before dawn for fasting.”
It is recommended to recite Surah of al-Qadr in addition to the recitals of invocations (dhikr) and special prayers,at early dawn (sahar).A hadith reads that any believer who recites the Surah of al-Qadr at the daybreak meal and the meal of breaking the fast, will be termed as sacrificing his blood for the sake of Almighty Allah between these two periods.
It is also highly recommended not to neglect the Salat al-Layl (Night Prayer)
we should keep in mind that our aim for eating at dawn is to perform a recommended religious act, as well as it provides us required strength in order to enable us to observe the fast.
