قَدْ كَفَانِي عِلْمُ رَبِّي

My Lord’s knowledge has sufficed me

مِنْ سُؤَالِي وَاخْتِيَارِي

from asking or choosing

فَدُعَائِي وابْتِھَالِي

For my du’a and my agonising supplication

شَاھِدٌ لِي بِافْتِقَارِي

is a witness to my poverty

فَلِھَذَا السِّرِّ أَدْعُو

For this secret (reason) I make supplication

فِي يَسَارِيْ وَعَسَارِي

in times of ease and times of difficulty

أَنَا عَبْدٌ صَارَ فَخْرِي

I am a slave whose pride

ضِمْنَ فَقْرِي وَاضْطِرَارِي

is in his poverty and obligation

يَا إِلَھِي وَمَلِيْكِي

O my Lord and my King

أنْتَ تَعْلَمُ كَيْفَ حَالِي

You know my state

وَبِمَا قَدْ حَلَّ قَلْبِي

And what has settled in my heart

مِنْ ھُمُوْم وَاشْتِغَالِي

of agonies and preoccupations

فَتَدَارَكْنِي بِلُطْفٍ

Save me with a gentleness

مِنْكَ يَا مَوْلَى الْمَوَالِي

from You, O Lord of Lords

ً يَا كَرِيْمَ الْوَ جْهِ غِثْنِي

Oh save me, Most Generous

قَبْلَ أنْ يَفْنَى اصْطِبَارِي

before I run out of patience (with myself)

يَا سَرِيْعَ الْغَوْثِ غَوْثًا

O One who is swift in sending aid

مِنْكَ يُدْرِكْنَا سَرِيْعًا

I ask for aid that will arrive to me swiftly

يَھْزِمُ الْعُسْرَ وَيَأْتِي

It will defeat all difficulty

بِالَّذِي نَرْجُو جَمِيْعًا

and it will bring all that I hope for

يا قَرِيْبًا يا مُجِيْبًا

O Near One Who answers

يا عَلِيْمًا يا سَمِيْعًا

and All-Knowing and All-Hearing

قَدْ تَحَقَّقْتُ بِعَجْزِي

I have attained realization through my incapacity

وخُضُوْعِي وانْكِسَارِي

my submission and my brokenness

لَمْ أَزَلْ بِالْبَابِ وَاقِفْ

I am still standing by the door, so please my Lord

فَارْحَمَنْ ربِّي وُقُوْفِي

have mercy on my standing

وبِوَادِي الْفَضْلِ عَاكِفْ

And in the valley of generosity, I am in i’tikaf (solitary

So, (retreat)

فَأَدِمْ ربِّي عُكُوْفِي

Allah, make my retreat here permanent

ولِحُسْنِ الظَّنِّ لاَزِم

And I’m abiding by good opinion (of You)

فَھُوَ خِلِّي وحَلِيْفِي

For it is my friend and ally

وأَنِيْسِي وجَلِيْسِي

And it is the one that sits by me and keeps me


طُوْلَ لَيْلِي ونَھَارِي

All day and night

حَاجَةً فِي النَّفْسِ يَا ربّ

There is a need in my soul, O Allah

فَاقْضِھَا يا خَيْرَ قَاضِي

so please fulfil it, O Best of Fulfillers

وأَرِحْ سِرِّي وقَلْبِي

And comfort my secret and my heart

مِنْ لَظاَھَا والشُّوَاظِ

from its burning and its shrapnel

فَالْھَنَا والْبَسْطُ حَالِي

For joy and expansion is my state

وشِعَارِي ودِثَارِي

and my motto and my cover
