O He remembering whom brings honor to those who remember!
O He thanking whom brings triumph to those who give thanks!
O He obeying whom brings deliverance to those who obey!
Bless Muhammad and his Household,
and divert our hearts through remembering You from every act of remembrance,
our tongues through thanking You from every act of thanksgiving,
our limbs through obeying You from every act of obedience!
If You have ordained for us idleness from these occupations,
make it an idleness of safety,
within which no ill consequence visits us
or weariness overtakes us!
Then the writers of evil deeds may depart from us
with a page empty of the mention of our evil deeds,
and the writers of good deeds may turn away from us happy
with the good deeds of ours which they have written.
And when the days of our life have passed by,
the terms of our lifetimes have elapsed,
and Your call,
which must come and be answered,
summons us forth,
then bless Muhammad and his Household
and make the outcome of what the writers of our works
count against us
an accepted repentance,
which afterwards gave us no rest
in a sin that we committed
or an act of disobedience that we performed!
Remove not from us any covering with which
You have covered over the heads of the witnesses
on the day when the records of Your servants are tried!
Verily You are compassionate to him who supplicates You,
the responder to him who calls upon You!
