Al-Hasan Al-Basry – Asking for Forgiveness


Friday

O Lord, I beg You to forgive every sin my body was able to commit through the strength You provided, and my ability reached through Your Graces, and my hand was extended to through the vastness of Your blessing, and while committing it I was veiled from people by Your concealment, and while doing it, my fear of You counted on Your shelter, and Your tolerance made me secure from Your Might, and I relied on Your Generosity and Clemency,…so please O Lord, send prayers, greetings and blessings upon Sayyidina Mohammed and the family of Sayyidina Mohammed and forgive them, O Best Forgiver.

O Lord, I beg You to forgive every sin that begets Your anger, or brings near Your discontent, or takes me close to what You forbade, or distances me from what You ordered,…so please O Lord, send prayers, greetings and blessings upon Sayyidina Mohammed and the family of Sayyidina Mohammed and forgive them, O Best Forgiver.

O Lord, I beg You to forgive every sin I lured any of Your people to commit through my tempting, or tricked them through my deceit, and taught them what was not known of it, or beautified to them the evil in it, and I meet You tomorrow with my wrongdoings in addition the wrongdoings of others,…so please O Lord, send prayers, greetings and blessings upon Sayyidina Mohammed and the family of Sayyidina Mohammed and forgive them, O Best Forgiver.

O Lord, I beg You to forgive every sin that calls for evil and deviates from reason, and decreases prosperity and extinguishes zikr and diminishes Lordly supply,…so please O Lord, send prayers, greetings and blessings upon Sayyidina Mohammed and the family of Sayyidina Mohammed and forgive them, O Best Forgiver.

O Lord, I beg You to forgive every sin I exhausted myself committing during my days and nights, while veiled, in shame, from people by Your concealment, for there is no concealment except Yours,…so please O Lord, send prayers, greetings and blessings upon Sayyidina Mohammed and the family of Sayyidina Mohammed and forgive them, O Best Forgiver.

O Lord, I beg You to forgive every sin that was observed by my enemies but You diverted their harm and did not aid them disgracing me as though I was obedient, and supported me against them as though I was an ally. Till when, O Lord, do I disobey and You grace me? and I have frequently disobeyed and You did not punish me, and I kept asking of You despite my wrongdoing and You gave me. What thanks can I provide that repay a single favor You provided me?…so please O Lord, send prayers, greetings and blessings upon Sayyidina Mohammed and the family of Sayyidina Mohammed and forgive them, O Best Forgiver.

O Lord, I beg You to forgive every sin I repented for doing, and swore to You and held Your allies witness that I will never go back to disobeying You; but when Satan shrewdly took hold of me, and my self-betrayal inclined me, and my inner self called on me for disobedience, I hid in shyness from people, without fear of You, despite knowing that no veil or door will hide me from You, for nothing conceals Your Vision. And so I disobeyed You, but You did not expose or reveal me, and in appearance held me equal to Your allies as if I were still obedient, following Your orders and avoiding Your prohibitions; which made me mistakenly accepted by Your pious worshipers, while no one knows my truth save You. You did not brand me with anything other than they did, and You even granted me the same favors You granted them as if I were in the same status as they were. All this is only due to Your Clemency and Grace upon me. So as You concealed my sin in this world, I beg You, O Lord, not to disgrace me with it on Judgement Day, O Most Merciful of all the merciful,…so please O Lord, send prayers, greetings and blessings upon Sayyidina Mohammed and the family of Sayyidina Mohammed and forgive them, O Best Forgiver.

O Lord, I beg You to forgive every sin I spent a night of lust planning and committing, and in the morning I come to You wearing robes of piety while meaning other than obeying You, O Lord of the Worlds,…so please O Lord, send prayers, greetings and blessings upon Sayyidina Mohammed and the family of Sayyidina Mohammed and forgive them, O Best Forgiver.

O Lord, I beg You to forgive every sin through which I brought injustice to any of Your allies, or through which I supported any of Your enemies, or during which I spoke of anything other than Your love, or attempted other than obeying You, or followed anything other than Your order,…so please O Lord, send prayers, greetings and blessings upon Sayyidina Mohammed and the family of Sayyidina Mohammed and forgive them, O Best Forgiver.

O Lord, I beg You to forgive every sin that begets turmoil and brings calamity, and elates the enemies, and uncovers the lid, and blocks the flow of graceful drops from the sky,…so please O Lord, send prayers, greetings and blessings upon Sayyidina Mohammed and the family of Sayyidina Mohammed and forgive them, O Best Forgiver.
