DAILY SUPPLICATIONS FOR THE MONTH OF RAMADAN

Translated from the Arabic by
 Yasin T. al-Jibouri
 

· اَللّـهُمَّ اجْعَلْ صِيامي فيهِ صِيامَ الصّائِمينَ، وَقِيامي فيهِ قيامَ الْقائِمينَ، وَنَبِّهْني فيهِ عَنْ نَوْمَةِ الْغافِلينَ، وَهَبْ لى جُرْمي فيهِ يا اِلـهَ الْعالَمينَ، وَاعْفُ عَنّي يا عافِياً عَنْ الْمجْرِمينَ .

Lord! Make my fast in it one of those who truly fast, my prayers those of who truly pray, and awaken me from the sleep of the inattentive, grant me forgiveness for my sins in it, O Lord of the Worlds, and do forgive me, O One Who forgives criminals.

· اَللّـهُمَّ قَرِّبْني فيهِ اِلى مَرْضاتِكَ، وَجَنِّبْني فيهِ مِنْ سَخَطِكَ وَنَقِماتِكَ، وَوَفِّقْني فيهِ لِقِرآءَةِ آياتك بِرَحْمَتِكَ يا اَرْحَمَ الرّاحِمينَ .

Lord! Bring me closer in it to Your pleasure, enable me in it to avoid Your anger and wrath, enable me to be in it to recite Your verses with Your mercy, O most merciful of those who have mercy!

· اَللّـهُمَّ ارْزُقْني فيهِ الذِّهْنَ وَالتَّنْبيهَ ، وَباعِدْني فيهِ مِنَ السَّفاهَةِ وَالَّتمْويهِ ، وَاجْعَلْ لى نَصيباً مِنْ كُلِّ خَيْر تُنْزِلُ فيهِ، بِجُودِكَ يا أجود الاْجْوَدينَ .

Lord! Grant me in it intelligence and attentiveness, distance me in it from nonsense and concealment, allot for me a portion of everything good which You send down in it with Your generosity, O most generous One!

· اَللّـهُمَّ قَوِّني فيهِ عَلى إقامة أمرك، وأذقني فيهِ حَلاوَةَ ذِكْرِكَ، وَاَوْزعْني فيهِ لاِداءِ شُكْرِكَ بِكَرَمِكَ، وَاحْفَظْني فيهِ بِحِفْظِكَ وَسَتْرِكَ، يا أبصر النّاظِرينَ .

Lord! Strengthen me in it to perform Your commands, enable me in it to taste the sweetness of mentioning Your Name, enable me in it to truly thank You with Your generosity, and safeguard me in it with Your safeguard and cover, O most seeing One!

· اَللّـهُمَّ اجْعَلْني فيهِ مِنْ الْمُسْتَغْفِرينَ، وَاجْعَلْني فيهِ مِنْ عِبادِكَ الصّالِحينَ اْلقانِتينَ ، وَاجْعَلني فيهِ مِنْ اَوْلِيائِكَ الْمُقَرَّبينَ، بِرَأْفَتِكَ يا اَرْحَمَ الرّاحِمينَ .

Lord! Enable me in it to be among those who seek Your forgiveness, make me in it among Your righteous and adoring servants, and enable me to be one of Your close friends through Your compassion, O most merciful One!

· اللّـهُمَّ لا تَخْذُلْني فيهِ لِتَعَرُّضِ مَعْصِيَتِكَ، وَلا تَضْرِبْني بِسِياطِ نَقِمَتِكَ، وَزَحْزِحْني فيهِ مِنْ مُوجِباتِ سَخَطِكَ ، بِمَنِّكَ وأياديك يا مُنْتَهى رَغْبَةِ الرّاغِبينَ .

Lord! Do not abandon me in it when I am exposed to transgressing Your limits, do not whip me with the whips of Your wrath, keep me away from whatever brings about Your anger with Your boons and assistance, O One Who is the ultimate end of the desirous.

· اَللّـهُمَّ اَعِنّي فِيهِ عَلى صِيامِهِ وَقِيامِهِ، وَجَنِّبْني فيهِ مِنْ هَفَواتِهِ وَآثامِهِ، وَارْزُقْني فيهِ ذِكْرَكَ بِدَوامِهِ، بِتَوْفيقِكَ يا هادِيَ الْمُضِلّينَ .

Lord! Help me in it to fast and to pray as it is worth, help me avoid its slips and sins, and grant me in it to continuously remember You with Your enabling, O One Who guides those who stray!

· اَللّـهُمَّ ارْزُقْني فيهِ رَحْمَةَ الأيتام، وإطعام اَلطَّعامِ، وإفشاء السَّلامِ، وَصُحْبَةَ الْكِرامِ، بِطَولِكَ يا ملجأ الآملين .

Lord! Grant me in it mercy due to orphans, to be able to give away food, to disseminate the peace, to accompany the good ones through Your own favors, O haven of the hopeful!

· اللّـهُمَّ اجْعَلْ لي فيهِ نَصيباً مِنْ رَحْمَتِكَ الْواسِعَةِ، وَاهْدِني فيهِ لِبَراهينِكَ السّاطِعَةِ، وَخُذْ بِناصِيَتي اِلى مَرْضاتِكَ الْجامِعَةِ، بِمَحَبَّتِكَ يا أمل الْمُشْتاقينَ .

Lord! Allot for me in it a portion of Your spacious mercy, guide me in it to Your glittering proofs, take my forelock to whatever achieves Your collective Pleasure through Your love, O hope of the eager ones!

· اَللّـهُمَّ اجْعَلْني فيهِ مِنَ الْمُتَوَكِّلينَ عَلَيْكَ، وَاجْعَلْني فيهِ مِنَ الْفائِزينَ لَدَيْكَ، وَاجْعَلْني فيهِ مِنَ الْمُقَرَّبينَ اِلَيْكَ، بإحسانك يا غايَةَ الطّالِبينَ .

Lord! Make me in it among those who depend on You, make me in it among the winners, and make me in it among those who are close to You with Your kindness, O ultimate end of the seekers!

· اَللّـهُمَّ حَبِّبْ اِلَيَّ فيهِ الإحسان، وَكَرِّهْ اِلَيَّ فيهِ الْفُسُوقَ وَالْعِصْيانَ، وَحَرِّمْ عَلَيَّ فيهِ السَّخَطَ وَالنّيرانَ بِعَوْنِكَ يا غِياثَ الْمُسْتَغيثينَ .

Lord! Make me in it love benevolence, hate immorality and rebellion, and prohibit in it anger against me and the Fires with Your assistance, O One Who brings relief to those who plead for it!

Lord! Purify me in it from uncleanness and filth, enable me in it to be patient about whatever the fates bring, grant me success in it for righteousness and for the company of the kind ones with Your assistance, O apple of the eyes of the indigent!

· اَللّـهُمَّ لا تُؤاخِذْني فيهِ بِالْعَثَراتِ، وَاَقِلْني فيهِ مِنَ الْخَطايا وَالْهَفَواتِ ، وَلا تَجْعَلْني فيهِ غَرَضاً لِلْبَلايا والآفات، بِعِزَّتِكَ يا عِزَّ الْمُسْلِمينَ .

Lord! Do not penalize me in it when I slip, protect me in it from sinning and slipping, and do not be an object to trials and tribulations with Your Dignity, O One Who safeguards the dignity of the Muslims!
