Text and Translation

In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful. بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
O He who gives to a servant who asks from Him, يا مَنْ إِذَا سَأَلَهُ عَبْدٌ أَعْطَاهُ،
takes him to his wish when he expectantly hopes for what is with Him, وَإذا أَمَّلَ ما عِنْدَهُ بَلَّغَهُ مُناهُ،
brings him near and close when he approaches Him, وَإِذَا أَقْبَلَ عَلَيْهِ قَرَّبَهُ وَأَدْناهُ،
covers over his sin and cloaks it when he shows it openly, وَإِذا جاهَرَهُ بِالْعِصْيانِ سَتَرَ عَلَىٰ ذَنْبِهِ وَغَطَّاهُ،
and satisfies and suffices him when he has confidence in Him! وَإِذا تَوَكَّلَ عَلَيْهِ أَحْسَبَهُ وَكَفَاهُ
My God, who is the one who has come before You seeking hospitality, and whom You have not received hospitably?
