Text and Translation

In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful. بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
My God, to You I complain of a soul commanding to evil, إِلـٰهِي إليْكَ أَشْكُو نَفْساً بِالسُّوءِ أَمَّارَةً،
rushing to offenses, وَإلَىٰ الْخَطيئَةِ مُبادِرَةً،
eager to disobey You, وَبِمَعاصِيكَ مُولَعَةً،
and exposing itself to Your anger. وَلِسَخَطِكَ مُتَعَرِّضَةً،
It takes me on the roads of disasters, تَسْلُكُ بِي مَسالِكَ الْمَهالِكِ،
it makes me the easiest of perishers before You; وَتَجْعَلُنِي عِنْدَكَ أَهْوَنَ هَالِكٍ،
many its pretexts, drawn out its expectations;
