S38 – His Supplication in Asking Pardon


His Supplication in Asking Pardon for Misdeeds to God’s Servants and for Falling Short  in their Rights and that his Neck be Set Free from the Fire



O God,

I ask pardon from You for

the person wronged in my presence

whom I did not help,

the favor conferred upon me

for which I returned no thanks,

the evildoer who asked pardon from me

and whom I did not pardon,

the needy person who asked from me

and whom I preferred not over myself,

the right of a believer who possesses a right incumbent upon me

which I did not fulfil,

the fault of a believer which became evident to me

and which I did not conceal,

and every sin which presented itself to me

and which I failed to avoid.



I ask pardon, my God,

for all of these and their likes,

with an asking of pardon in remorse

which may act as an admonisher

against similar things ahead of me.



So bless Muhammad and his Household

and make my remorse for the slips

into which I have fallen

and my determination to refrain from the evil deeds

which present themselves to me

a repentance which will make Your love for me obligatory

O lover of those who repent!
