4. The Whispered Prayer of the Hopeful
الرابعة : مناجاة الراجين
In the Name of God, the All-merciful,
the All-compassionate
1- O He who gives to a servant who asks from Him,
takes him to his wish when he expectantly hopes for what is with Him,
brings him near and close when he approaches Him,
covers over his sin and cloaks it when he shows it openly,
and satisfies and suffices him when he has confidence in Him!
2- My God, who is the one who has come before Thee seeking hospitality,
and whom Thou hast not received hospitably?
Who is the one who has dismounted at Thy door
hoping for magnanimity,
and to whom Thou hast not shown it?
Is it good that I come back from Thy door,
turned away in disappointment,
while I know of no patron qualified by beneficence but Thee?
How should I have hope in other than Thee,
when the good - all of it - is in Thy hand?7
How should I expect from others,
when Thine are the creation and the command?8
Should I cut off my hope for Thee,
when Thou hast shown me of Thy bounty
that for which I have not asked?
Wouldst Thou make me have need for my like?
But I hold fast to Thy cord!
O He through whose mercy the strivers reach felicity
and through whose vengeance the seekers of forgiveness are not made wretched!
How should I forget Thee,
while Thou never ceasest remembering me?
How should I be diverted from Thee
while Thou art my constant watcher?
3- My God,
I have fastened my hand
to the skirt of Thy generosity,
I have stretched forth my expectation toward reaching Thy gifts,
so render me pure through the purest profession of Thy Unity,
and appoint me one of Thy choice servants!
O He who is the asylum of every fleer,
the hope of every seeker!
O Best Object of hope!
O Most Generous Object of supplication!
O He who does not reject His asker
or disappoint the expectant!
O He whose door is open to His supplicators
and whose veil is lifted for those who hope in Him!
I ask Thee by Thy generosity to show kindness toward me
through Thy gifts, with that which will gladden my eye,
through hope in Thee, with that which will give serenity to my soul,
and through certainty with that which will make easy for me the afflictions of this world
and lift from my insight the veils of blindness!
By Thy mercy,
O Most Merciful of the merciful!
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
1. يا مَنْ إذا سَأَلَهُ عَبْدٌ أَعْطَاهُ،
وَإذا أَمَّلَ ما عِنْدَهُ بَلَّغَهُ مُناهُ،
وَإذا أَقْبَلَ عَلَيْهِ قَرَّبَهُ وَأَدْناهُ،
وَإذا جاهَرَهُ بِالْعِصْيانِ سَتَرَ عَلَى ذَنْبِهِ وَغَطَّاهُ،
وَإذا تَوَكَّلَ عَلَيْهِ أَحْسَبَهُ وَكَفَاهُ.
2. إلهِي مَنِ الَّذِي نَزَلَ بِكَ مُلْتَمِساً قِراكَ
فَما قَرَيْتَهُ؟
وَمَنِ الَّذِي أَناخَ بِبابِكَ مُرْتَجِياً نَداكَ
فَما أَوْلَيْتَهُ؟
أَيَحْسُنُ أَنْ أَرْجِعَ عَنْ بابِكَ بِالْخَيْبَةِ مَصْرُوفاً،
وَلَسْتُ أَعْرِفُ سِواكَ مَوْلىً بِالإِحْسانِ مَوْصُوفاً؟
كَيْفَ أَرْجُو غَيْرَكَ
وَالْخَيْرُ كُلُّهُ بِيَدِكَ؟!
وَكَيْفَ أُؤَمِّلُ سِوَاكَ
وَالْخَلْقُ وَالأَمْرُ لَكَ؟!
أَأَقْطَعُ رَجآئِي مِنْكَ
وَقَدْ أَوْلَيْتَنِي ما لَمْ أَسْأَلْهُ مِنْ فَضْلِكَ؟!
أَمْ تُفْقِرُنِي إلى مِثْلِي
وَأَنَا أَعْتَصِمُ بِحَبْلِكَ؟!
يا مَنْ سَعِدَ بِرَحْمَتِهِ الْقاصِدُونَ،
وَلَمْ يَشْقَ بِنِقْمَتِهِ الْمُسْتَغْفِرُونَ،
كَيْفَ أَنْسَاكَ
وَلَمْ تَزَلْ ذاكِرِي؟!
وَكَيْفَ أَلْهُو عَنْكَ
وَأَنْتَ مُراقِبِي؟!
3. إلهِي بِذَيْلِ كَرَمِكَ أَعْلَقتُ يَدِي،
وَلِنَيْلِ عَطاياكَ بَسَطْتُ أَمَلِي،
فَأَخْلِصْنِي بِخالِصَةِ تَوْحِيدِكَ،
وَاجْعَلْنِي مِنْ صَفْوَةِ عَبِيدِك،
يا مَنْ كُلُّ هارِب إلَيْهِ يَلْتَجِئُ،
وَكُلُّ طالِب إيَّاهُ يَرْتَجِي،
يا خَيْرَ مَرْجُوٍّ،
وَيا أَكْرَمَ مَدْعُوٍّ،
وَيا مَنْ لا يُرَدُّ سآئِلُهُ،
وَلا يُخَيَّبُ آمِلُهُ،
يا مَنْ بابُهُ مَفْتُوحٌ لِدَاعِيهِ،
وَحِجابُهُ مَرْفُوعٌ لِراجِيهِ،
أَسْأَلُكَ بِكَرَمِكَ أَنْ تَمُنَّ عَلَيَّ
مِنْ عَطآئِكَ بِما تَقَرُّ بِهِ عَيْنِي،
وَمِنْ رَجآئِكَ بِما تَطْمَئِنُّ بِهِ نَفْسِي،
وَمِنَ الْيَقِينِ بِما تُهَوِّنُ بِهِ عَلَيَّ مُصِيباتِ الدُّنْيا،
وَتَجْلُو بِهِ عَنْ بَصِيرَتِي غَشَواتِ الْعَمى
بِرَحْمَتِكَ يا أَرْحَمَ الرَّاحِمِينَ.
