Beseech

Salamualaykum,

This is one of my favorite Ramadan du’as:

اللهم خلقتني ولم أك شيئا مذكورا، ورزقتني ولم أملك شيئا، وظلمت نفسي وارتكبت المعاصي وأنا مقرّ بذنبي، إن غفرت لي فلا ينقص من ملكك، وإن تعذبني فلا يزيد في سلطانك، وإنك تجد من تعذبه غيري وأنا لا أجد من يغفر لي إلا أنت، إنك أنت أرحم الراحمين

Translation:

“O Allah, You created me when I was not worthy of mention;
And You provided for me when I had nothing;
And I wronged my soul and sinned, and I confess my guilt.
If You forgive me, that will in no way diminish Your sovereignty;
And if You punish me, that will in no way augment Your authority.
You can find others to punish besides me,
But I can find no one to forgive me but You.
Truly, You are the most merciful of those who show mercy”

What’s yours? :)

-Fi Amanillah-

  1. Wa alaikum as Salam,

    Jazakallahu Khaira! Great Dua. I want to memorize it. Could you please provide the transliteration for the above dua.

    My favourite dua is:
    اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ رَبِّي لا إِلَهَ إِلا أَنْتَ خَلَقْتَنِي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ وَأَنَا عَلَى عَهْدِكَ وَوَعْدِكَمَا اسْتَطَعْتُ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا صَنَعْتُ أَبُوءُ لَكَ بِنِعْمَتِكَ عَلَيَّ وَأَبُوءُ لَكَ بِذَنْبِي فَاغْفِرْ لِي فَإِنَّهُ لا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلا أَنْتَ

    Allahumma Anta Rabbi, la ilaha illa Anta khalaqtani wa ana `abduka wa ana `ala `ahdika wa wa`dika mastat`at. A`udhu bika min sharri ma sana`t, abu’u laka bi ni`matika `alayy, wa abu’u bi dhanbi faghfir li, fa innahu la yaghfiru dhunuba illa Anta

    ‘O Allaah, You are my Lord. None has the right to be worshipped except You.
    You created me, and I am Your slave.
    And I am faithful to my covenant and my promise as far as I am able.
    I seek Your refuge from the evil of what I have done.
    I acknowledge before You all the favors that You have bestowed upon me.
    And I confess all my sins to You.
    So forgive me, since none can forgive sins except You.

  2. Waiyyakum. This is a pretty good transliteration:

    Allahumma khalaqtani wa lam akun shay’an madhkoora
    Wa razaqtani wa lam amliku shay’an
    Wa dhalamtu nafsi wartakabtu al-ma’aasi wa ana muqurrin bi-dhanbi
    Allahumma in ghafarta li fa-la yanqus min mulkika shay,
    Wa in tu’adhibni fa-la yazeedu fee sultaanik,
    Wa innaka tajidu man tu’adhabahu ghayri
    Wa lakinnani la ajudu man yaghfir dhunoobi ghayrik.
    Innaka anta arHamu ar-RaaHimeen

    I still can’t find this du’a with the proper huroof anywhere. It was a regular supplication of Uwais al Qarni (ra) if that helps.
    JazakAllahu Khair for sharing that du’a :)
