S10 – His Supplication in Seeking Asylum with GodS10 – His Supplication in Seeking Asylum with God

O God,

if You will,

You will pardon us through Your bounty

and if You will,

You will chastise us through Your justice.

 

 

So make our ways smooth to Your pardon through Your kindness

and grant us sanctuary from Your chastisement through Your forbearance,

for none of us has the endurance for Your justice

and none of us can reach deliverance without Your pardon!

 

 

O Richest of the rich!

Here we are, Your servants, before You.

I am the neediest of the needy toward You,

so redress our neediness through Your plenty

and cut us not off from our hopes through Your withholding,

lest You make wretched him who seeks felicity through You

and deprive him who seeks help from Your bounty!

 

 

Then to whom would we return after You?

Where would we go from Your gate?

Glory be to You!

We are the distressed,

the response to whom

You have made incumbent,

the people from whom

You have promised to remove the evil

 

That thing most resembling Your will

and that affair most worthy for You in Your mightiness

is showing mercy to him who asks You for mercy

and helping him who seeks help from You.

 

 

So show mercy upon our pleading with You

and free us from need when we throw ourselves before You!

 

 

O God,

Satan will gloat over us if we follow him in disobeying You,

so bless Muhammad and his Household

and let him not gloat over us

after we have renounced him for You

and beseeched You against him!
