In the name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْم
Run to a dead end the hoodwinked passengers who looked for the “Ghayrallah” (other than Thee),
Lost their way, lured and swindled, those who hanged onto and held fast anything that offers itself, not linked with Thee,
cried in anguish, frightened and agitated, those who stayed and took shelter anywhere other than Thee,
went waste efforts of those who tried to profit from that which they came across instead of having the wholesome benefits from Thee.
Thy door is wide open for those who call humbly and fervently on Thee,
Success, high – mindedness, and piety are freely available to those who pray and request Thee,
Thy favours are common and open to all when besought submissively,
They gifts come in long strides when asked for by the hopeful supplicants, tears in their eyes, the daily bread (from Thee) is openly spread out for one and all, even the transgressors, Thy indulgence reach out (even) to those who keep themselves far from Thee,
Thy usual disposition is to do favour (even) to those who stir up mischief,
Thy system looks after and keeps alive (even) those who are hostile to Thee.
O my Allah, therefore, keep me on the path of those who are rightly guided, give me courage to strive like those who exert themselves fully in Thy way,
and do not let me be among the negligent who have gone far in their forgetfulness, forgive me on the Day of Judgment.
خَابَ الْوَافِدُونَ عَلَى غَيْرِكَ،
وَخَسِرَ الْمُتَعَرِّضُونَ إلاّ لَكَ،
وَضَاعَ الْمُلِمُّونَ إلاّ بِكَ،
وَأَجْدَبَ الْمُنْتَجِعُونَ إلاّ مَنِ انْتَجَعَ فَضْلَكَ،
بَابُكَ مَفْتُوحٌ لِلرَّاغِبِينَ،
وَخَيْرُكَ مَبْذُولٌ لِلطَّالِبِينَ،
وَفَضْلُكَ مُبَاحٌ لِلسَّائِلِينَ،
وَنَيْلُكَ مُتَاحٌ لِلآمِلِينَ،
وَرِزْقُكَ مَبْسُوطٌ لِمَنْ عَصَاكَ،
وَحِلْمُكَ مُعْتَرِضٌ لِمَنْ نَاوَاكَ،
عَادَتُكَ الإحْسَانُ إلَى الْمُسِيئِينَ وَسَبِيلُكَ الإبْقَاءُ عَلَى الْمُعْتَدِينَ.
اللّهُمَّ فَاهْدِنِي هُدَى الْمُهْتَدِينَ،
وَارْزُقْنِي اجْتِهَادَ الْمُجْتَهِدِينَ،
وَلا تَجْعَلْنِي مِنَ الْغَافِلِينَ الْمُبْعَدِينَ،
وَاغْفِرْ لِي يَوْمَ الدِّينِ.
