Text and Translation

In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful. بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
My God, I have no mediation with You but the tender acts of Your clemency, إِلـٰهِي لَيْسَ لِي وَسِيلَةٌ إلَيْكَ إلاَّ عَواطِفُ رَأفَتِكَ،
nor any way to come to You but the gentle favours of Your mercy وَلا لِي ذَرِيعَةٌ إلَيْكَ إلاَّ عَوارِفُ رَحْمَتِكَ،
and the intercession of Your Prophet, the prophet of mercy, وَشَفاعَةُ نَبِيّـِكَ نَبِيّ ِ الرَّحْمَةِ،
who rescued the community from confusion. وَمُنْقِذِ الأُمَّةِ مِنَ الْغُمَّةِ،
Make these two my tie to attaining Your forgiveness فَاجْعَلْهُما لِي سَبَباً إلىٰ نَيْلِ غُفْرانِكَ،
