S34 – His Supplication when AfflictedS34 – His Supplication when Afflicted

His Supplication when he was Afflicted or saw Someone Afflicted with the Disgrace of Sin



O God,

to You belongs praise for

Your covering over after Your knowledge

and Your pardon after Your awareness!

Each of us has committed faults,

but You have not made him notorious,

done indecencies,

but You have not disgraced him,

and covered over evil deeds,

but You have not pointed to him.



How many are Your prohibited acts

which we have performed,

Your commandments of which You have told us

which we have transgressed,

the evil deeds

which we have earned,

the offenses

which we have committed!

You see them

to the exclusion of all observers;

You have the power to make them public

above all the powerful!

By giving us safety

You have veiled their eyes

and stopped their ears.



So make

the shameful things You have covered over

and the inward reality You have concealed

our admonisher,

a restrainer upon bad character traits and committing offenses,

and a striving toward the repentance that erases [sins]

and the praiseworthy path!



Bring the time of striving near

and visit us not with heedlessness of You!

Surely we are Your beseechers,

the repenters of sins.



And bless Your chosen, O God, from Your creation,

Muhammad and his descendants,

the friends selected from among Your creatures, the pure,

and make us listeners to them and obeyers,

as You have commanded!
