بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful.
اللهم صلي على محمد وأل محمد
O Allah, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad.
إلهي وقف السائلون ببابك
O Allah, the beggars are standing at Your door,
ولاذ الفقراء بجنابك
the needy have taken refuge with Your Honor.
ووقفت سفينة المساكين
The ship carrying the poor and humble people is standing
على ساحل بحر
at the shores of the sea ,
جودك وكرمك
of Your generosity and grace,
يرجون الجواز
hoping for permission to cross ,
إلى ساحة رحمتك ونعمتك
to the shores of Your mercy and blessings.
إلهي إن كنت لا ترحم
My God, if You do not forgive,
في هذا الشهر الشريف
in this honored month,
إلا لمن اخلص
except the one who has sincerely purified himself for You,
لك في صيامه وقيامه
in his fasting and prayers,
فمن للمذنب المقصر
then who is there for the negligent sinner,
إذا غرق في بحر ذنوبه واثامه
when he drowns in the sea of his sins?
إلهي إن كنت لا ترحم
My God, if You do not have mercy on any,
إلا المطيعين
except the obedient,
فمن للعاصين
then who is there for the disobedient?
وإن كنت لا تقبل
And if You do not accept from any,
إلا من العاملين
except the performers of (good) actions,
فمن للمُقصرين
then who is there for those who fall short?
إلهي ربح الصائمون
My God, those who fast have profited,
وفاز القائمون
those who stay up in prayer have won,
ونجى المُخلصون
and those who are sincere have succeeded,
ونحن عبيدك المُذنبون
but we are Your sinful servants!
فارحمنا برحمتك
So be kind to us through Your mercy
واعتقنا من النار بعفوك
and save us from the fire through Your forgiveness,
يا كريم يا ارحم الراحمين
O Gracious O most merciful.
وصلى الله على محمد وأله الطاهرين
O Allah, bless Muhammad and his family, the purified ones.
