Dua Abu Hamza Thumali

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful O' my Lord! Do not discipline me through Your punishment, And do not plot against me in Your stratagem. From where do I obtain the bounties? O' Lord, none can be found except with You, And how can I seek salvation while it can be granted by none but You. The good-doer cannot do without Your help and mercy, nor can the sinful one who offended You (when sinning), and displeased You, bypass the realm of Your power and capacity. O' my Lord, O' my Lord, O' my Lord...(repeat until you runt out of breath) I knew of You by You, and You directed me to You and called me to You, and without You I would not have known what You are. All Praise is for Allah whom I call upon with my needs and He answers me, even though I am slow when He calls upon me. All Praise is for Allah whom I supplicate and He grants me (what I plead for) even though I am miserly when He seeks a loan from me. All Praise is for Allah whom I call upon with my needs whenever I wish, and I entrust Him with my secrets without an intercessor, and He grants me my wishes. All Praise is for Allah, I do not hope from anyone but Him, and if I hoped from others, they would disappoint my hope. All Praise is for Allah who dignified me by entrusting me to Himself, and did not make me rely on others who would humiliate me. All Praise is for Allah who is loving to me even though He is not in need of me. All Praise is for Allah who treats me with forbearance as though I have no sin. Thus my Lord is the most praised by me, and the most worthy of my praise. O' Allah! I find the roads of my needs to You wide open the rivers of hope to You vast and running counting on Your bountifulness (in times of need) for those who hope in You, freely accessible the gates of prayer to those who are desperate, open And I know that You are for those who ask You, in the position of answer, And for those who are distressed You are in a posture of rescue. In seeking Your generosity, desperately and being content with Your decree I find compensation for the rejection of the misers and more satisfaction than in the handouts of the selfish. Surely traveling to You is short in duration You do not veil Yourself from Your creatures unless their own misdeeds block them from You. I have intended You for my needs and turned towards You for my wishes I seek help from You and pray to You knowing that I am not worthy of Your listening to me, nor do I have a right on You to pardon me, but I have confidence in Your generosity I submit to Your true promise (to answer our prayers) and I take refuge through believing in Your unity, and through my knowledge about You, that indeed I have no lord other than You, and there is no god but You, You alone; there is no partner for You. O' my Lord! You said, and Your word is right and Your promise is true, that O‟ (believers) ask Allah of His bounty, for Allah is Merciful towards you (4:32), And it is not from Your qualities, O' my Master, to order [me] to ask and prevent the answer, and You are the Grantor of all bounties, on all the people of Your kingdom and the One who turns to them with compassionate kindness. O' my Lord! You have brought me up with Your favors and goodness since I was young and raised me as I grew older So, O' the One who brought me up in this life with His benevolence, bounties and blessings and guided me to His forgiveness and generosity in the hereafter. My knowledge [of You], O' my Master, guides me to You and my love [of You] is my intercessor to You, so I trust my guidance because of Your guidance and am comfortable with my intercessor because of Your intercession. I pray to You, O' my master, with a tongue that has been paralyzed by its sin, O' my Lord, I confide to You with a heart that has been doomed by its mischief I pray to You, O' my Lord, frightened but wishful, hopeful but fearful. If I contemplate my sins, O' my Lord, I become scared, but when I remember Your generosity I yearn,. So, if You forgive, You are the most merciful and if You punish, You have not unjustly judged. My excuse, O' Allah in my daring to ask You even though I have committed what You hate is Your benevolence and generosity and my preparation for my difficult times though I lack shyness (in committing sin) is Your kindness and mercy. I am wishful that my hope will not be disappointed so fulfill my hopes and hear my prayer O' The Best of those who are prayed to! O' The Most bountiful of those who was hoped in! My hope, my Master is great but my deeds are evil so grant me from Your pardon as much as I had hoped, and do not take me into account for the worst of my deeds for Your generosity is greater than to punish the sinners and Your forbearance is higher than recompensing those who fall short. My Master, I seek refuge through Your benevolence I escape from You to You, anticipating Your promise to forgive those who possess good convictions about You. Who am I, my Lord, and what is my significance! Grant me Your benevolence and be kind to me with Your pardon O' my Lord, cover me with Your protection and pardon me of my punishment by your honor. For if any one today other than You would have known of my sin, I would not have sinned And if I feared that You may hasten my punishment I would have avoided sinning, Not because You are not an important watcher, nor an unworthy onlooker, but because You, my Lord, are the best of those who conceal, and the Wisest of all rulers, and Most generous of all generous, Protector of secrets, Oft-forgiver of sins, Knower of all that is hidden! You protect the sins with Your generosity and You delay the punishment with Your patience, So for You is all Praise for forbearance after knowledge, and for pardon after power [to punish]. What allows me to disobey You is Your patience with me and what invites me to the lack of shyness (from You) is Your concealment of my sins. What rushes me towards Your forbidden actions is my awareness of the vastness of Your mercy and the greatness of Your pardon O' Forbearer! O' Generous! O' One who is living and self-subsisting! O' Forgiver of sin! O' Acceptor of repentance! O' Greatest giver of all good! O' Ancient in benevolence! Where is Your beautiful protection of secrets Where is Your abundant pardon, I call upon Your neighboring relief, I call upon Your quick rescue, I call upon Your vast mercy and compassion, I call upon Your bountiful gifts, I call upon Your blessed awards, I call upon Your splendid favors, I call upon Your immense bountifulness, I call upon Your enormous endowments, I call upon Your ancient benefaction, I call upon Your benevolence, O' Most Generous. By it (what I mentioned of Your features) I seek Your rescue, and by Your compassion, please relieve me. O' Benevolent! O' Creator of beauty! O' Benefactor! O' Bountiful! I do not depend on our (good) deeds to achieve salvation from Your punishment rather I trust it to Your bountifulness toward us for You are the Lord of righteousness and the Lord of forgiveness. You initiate Your giving through Your graciousness and You pardon sin with Your generosity We do not know what we should praise more the beautiful things [about us] that You spread or the ugly things You conceal the great [good] that You grant and test us through or the many [evils] that You avert and cure O' The beloved of those who love You! O' The delight of the eye of who sought You for refuge and dedicated himself to You! You are the good doer and we are the sinners So overlook O my Lord, our evil through the beauty that is with You, What ignorance, O my Lord, cannot be accommodated by Your benevolence? What era is too long for Your patience? What is the significance of our deeds compared to Your favors? And how can we consider our good deeds to be much when faced with Your generosity? Yet how can sinners despair when they are encompassed by Your vast mercy? O Vast Forgiver! O Extender of both hands with mercy! I swear with Your exalted might, O Master, that if You rebuked me, I would not turn away from Your door, and I would not stop praising You for I have known Your generosity and benevolence, You are the doer of what You wish You punish whoever You wish, with whatever You wish, and however You wish You bestow Your mercy on whoever You wish with whatever You wish, and however You wish You are not questioned about Your doings nor is there any struggle in Your kingdom nor is there any partnership in Your command or conflict in Your judgment and no one can oppose You in Your disposition of affairs To You belongs all of the creation and command Blessed is Allah, Lord of the worlds O Lord! This is the position of one who seeks refuge in You and seeks protection through Your generosity inclines towards Your kindness and favors And You are the benevolent whose forgiveness is never strained Your bounties do not decrease Your mercy never lessens And we have confidence in You through Your pardon in the past, and [Your] great bountifulness and vast mercy. Would You, O Lord, disappoint our expectations? or let down our hopes? No never, O Most Generous! that is not what we expect of You nor is it what we aspire from You O Lord, we have a lot of high hopes in You we have great desires in You we have disobeyed You, but we hope that You conceal our sins we prayed to You and hope You will answer us So fulfill our hopes, O' our Master for indeed we know that we do not deserve anything through our deeds But our knowledge of You and our knowledge that You will not turn us away from You, has motivated us to seek You even though we are not worthy of Your mercy You are worthy of bestowing Your generosity on us and on all the sinners due to Your vast compassion So, grant us with what You are worthy of and be generous to us for we are in need of Your bounty. O Most Forgiving! Through Your light we were guided through Your bounties we have become richer We encounter Your favors morning and evening Our sins are before You and we ask You, O' Master, for forgiveness and we turn repentant You befriend us with Your gifts but we return it with sins Your goodness descends to us but our evil ascends to You Continuously an honored angel rings You our ugly deeds but that does not prevent You from surrounding us with Your grace and granting us Your favors So, glory be to You What a Forbearing, Great and Generous [God] You are! who begins and ends creation holy are Your names And glorified is Your praise, honored are Your favors and deeds. You are my Lord, most vast in grace greater in forbearance than to judge me according to my wrong doing and fault So I beg You : Forgiveness, forgiveness, forgiveness, O' my Master, O' my Master, O' my Master. O' Lord! Occupy our time with Your remembrance protect us from Your wrath, save us from Your punishment, grant us from Your favors give us from Your grace, provides us the means to conduct pilgrimage to Your house (Ka'ba), and to visit the tomb of Your Prophet may Your blessings, mercy, forgiveness and graciousness be bestowed upon him and his family Indeed, You are close, You answer [our prayers] And assist us in abiding by Your obedience and give us death while we are in Your (righteous) congregation and followers of the tradition of Your Prophet, may peace of Allah be upon him and his family. O' Lord! Forgive me and my parents and grant them mercy as they have raised me when I was young reward their good deeds with goodness and (pardon) their sins with forgiveness. O' Lord! Forgive the believing men and women, those who are alive and those who are deceased and let us follow on their path with good deeds. O' Lord! Forgive the living among us and the deceased the present ones and the absent, the male and female the young and old, the free ones and the slaves Indeed the antagonists of Allah lied, wandered astray completely, and incurred a major loss. O' Lord! Bless Muhammad and his family conclude my life in virtue resolve my worries from the affairs of this life and of the hereafter do not allow anyone who will not have mercy on me to have power over me provide me with Your everlasting protection do not take away from the best of the blessings You have granted me Grant me, through Your grace, a sustenance that is ample, halal, and pleasant. O' Lord! Guard me with Your safeguard protect me with Your protection, ally me with Your alliance grant me the chance to conduct pilgrimage to Your sacred house (Ka'ba) in this year and in every year and to visit the tomb of Your Prophet and the Imams, peace be upon them, and do not deprive me, Oh Lord, from visiting these honorable sanctuaries and noble positions. O' Lord! Accept my repentance until I do not disobey You anymore, inspire me with righteousness and its implementation, And the awe of You, by night and by day as long as You let me live, O Lord of the worlds. O Allah, every time I say I am prepared and am ready and I rise to pray, before You and converse with You You cast sleepiness on me when I prayed and You prevented me from conversing with You when I whispered, What is wrong with me. ? that whenever I said I have reformed my inner self and my companionships have neared that of the repentant ones, a sin would occur and cause my feet to stumble and deprive me from Your service? My Master, perhaps You have expelled me from Your door, and retired me from Your service or maybe You observed my disregard of Your right on me and thus distanced me or maybe You saw me headed away from (Your path) and thus You withdrew me or maybe You found me to be in the position of the liars so You rejected me or maybe You saw that I was not grateful of Your rewards so You deprived me or maybe You observed my absence from the assembly of the scholars and thus put me down or maybe You found me to be one of the heedless so You despaired me of Your mercy, or maybe You found me frequenting the assembly of the unfaithful so You left me to them or maybe You did not like to hear my prayers so You distanced me or maybe You recompensed me for my crime and sin, or maybe You punished me for my lack of shyness from You. But if You forgive, O Lord then You have forgiven many sinners before me. For Your generosity, O Lord, is higher than punishing those who fall short I seek refuge with Your grace and I escape from You to You I anticipate Your promise to pardon those who possessed good convictions about You. O' My Lord! You are more vast in grace and greater in patience than to judge me according to my deed or to take me to account on my sin. who am I, my Master, and what is my significance? grant me from Your grace my Master! be kind to me with Your pardon cover me with Your concealment and pardon me from Your chastisement through Your benevolence O my Master! I am the young one whom You raised the ignorant whom You educated the misled one whom You guided the humiliated one whom You elevated the frightened one whom You safeguarded, the hungry one whom You fed the thirsty one whose thirst You quenched the naked one whom You dressed the poor one whom You made wealthy the weak one whom You strengthened, the insignificant one whom You honored the sick one whom You cured the beggar whom You provided charity to the sinner whose secret You have protected the wrong doer whom You aided the one who was less, and You made more the oppressed one whom You helped I am the escapee whom You gave refuge to I am the one, O' Allah, who was not shy of You (when I committed sins) in privacy nor observed Your (commands) in public I am the possessor of the great craftiness (bad intentions) I am the one who dared [to disobey] His Master I am the one who disobeyed the Commander of the skies I am the one who awarded briberies upon the disobeying of the Magnificent (Allah) I am the one who when I was forewarned about it (sins), I hastily raced to it I am the one whom You indulged but I did not comprehend whom You concealed but I was not ashamed I committed sins until I transgressed You lowered me in your regard but I did not care, So through Your forbearance You indulged me through Your concealment me You concealed me as if You have overlooked me and You shielded me from punishment as if You hesitated from [punishing] me My God, I did not disobey You when I did because I rejected Your divinity or because I belittled Your commands or that I was daringly challenging Your punishment or that I did not take Your promise seriously Yet the mistake has occurred my self misled me my sinful desires won over me and my misfortune helped towards that Your protective veil over my sins lured me, surely I have disobeyed You and opposed You with my own will and now from who will rescue me from Your punishment and who will save me from the hands of Your angels of punishment tomorrow (in the hereafter) whose rope will I hold on to if You cut off Your rope from me, so woe be to me for what Your book has recorded on me Indeed, if it was not for my anticipation of Your generosity and vast mercy as well as Your ordering me not to lose hope (in Your salvation) I would have despaired whenever I remembered it (my sin). O' the Best of those who a caller calls to and the Foremost of those who anyone hopes from O' Lord! In the name of Islam, I implore You And through the sanctity of the holy Qur'an I depend upon You, through my love for the unschooled Prophet (Muhammad) The Quraishi, The Hashimite, The Arab The Tuhamian (the name of the region where Quraish is located) The Makki, The Madani I seek to be closer to You So do not let the serenity of my faith be disturbed And do not cause my reward to be the reward of those who worshipped other than You For, indeed there are people who believed [only] with their tongues so that they may save their lives and they gathered what they wished But we have believed in You with our tongues and with our hearts so that You may pardon us, So grant us what we wish for, And anchor hope in You in our hearts do not let our hearts go astray after You have guided us grant us Your mercy, Indeed You are the Giver I swear by Your glory, that even if You send me away I would not turn away from Your door, and I would not cease to praise You, for what my heart has been inspired with from the knowledge of Your benevolence and vast mercy. Where would a slave go but to his master? Where would a creature seek refuge but in his Creator? My God, Even if You tied me with the chains of hell, and You deprived me Your flowing stream (of favors) from between the witnesses (of the day of Judgment) And You pointed out my scandals in front of Your worshipers You ordered me to hell And You isolated me from the company of the faithful I would not cut off my hope in You and I would not dismiss my hope in Your pardon and love for You would not depart from my heart I cannot forget the helping hand You bestowed upon me, and Your concealment of me in world O my Master! Remove the love of the world from my heart, unite me with Mustafa and his family the dearest of Your creatures and the last of the Prophets Muhammad, blessings of Allah be on him and his family transfer me to the level of repentance to You help me to cry for myself for I have wasted my life away with procrastination and false hopes, And now I have come to You hopeless of my goodness, Who is more worse off than me, if I pass on in my present state to a grave t hat I have not prepared for my repose I did not line [my grave] with good deeds for my stay What is wrong with me why do I not weep when I have no knowledge of my fate and I observe my self deceiving itself and my days fading away, the wings of death have flapped close by So why wouldn't I cry! I cry for the coming out of my soul I cry for the darkness of my grave, I cry for the narrowness of my grave I cry for the questioning of Munkar and Nakeer I cry for the coming out of my grave naked, humiliated carrying my book (of deeds) on my back I look to the right once and to the left once and I discover that people today have other concern than mine, for every person that day has a concern of his own, some faces today are bright, laughing and joyful, while other faces that day are dusty, loaded with submission and humility. O' Master! On You is my dependence, hope, reliance, and trust and I cling to Your mercy You bestow Your mercy on whomever You please and You guide with Your benevolence whomever You like, So all praise is for You for purifying my heart from ascribing partners to You, And all praise is for You for releasing my tongue Is it with this heavy tongue of mine I thank You or with the utmost effort of mine do I please You? And what is the value of my tongue, O' Lord, when it comes to thanking You? And what is the value of my good deeds beside Your gifts and fortitude with me? My God, Your generosity has increased my hope Your kindness has led to the acceptance of my deed my Master! towards You I direct my aim, my fear, and my desires my hope has driven me to You on You O' the One, I concentrate my initiative upon what You possess I unfolded my desire, my ultimate hope and fear rest upon You and with You, my love finds pleasure. I spread my hands wide open to You And with the rope of Your obedience I eased my fear. my Master! In Your remembrance, my heart blooms, and in conversation with You the pain of my fear is relieved. So, my Master, the One whom I hope from! the One who is the Ultimate Grantor of my request! Separate between me and my sin that disables me from abiding by Your obedience,. I ask You due to the long resting of hope upon You and the coveting in You, in what You obliged yourself with from compassion and mercy. Surely, the command is yours, You are the One with no partners, and all creatures are under You and in Your control, everything submits to You blessed are You, Lord of the worlds my God, have mercy on me when my excuses have failed and when my tongue has ceased to be able to answer to You (on judgment day) and my intellect has subsided upon Your questioning, So O my ultimate hope, do not disappoint me when my poverty has intensified do not reject me due to my ignorance do not deprive me due to my lack of patience, provide for me for I am poor, have mercy on me for I am weak. my Master! Upon You is my dependence, my ultimate goal, my hope and my reliance to Your mercy I cling, on Your grounds, I conclude my journey, to Your generosity I direct my request, And with Your generosity, O' Allah, I commence my prayer from You I seek relief from my helplessness with Your wealth I amend my poverty under the shadow of Your pardon, I stand, towards Your generosity and benevolence I raise my eyesight to Your favor, I prolong my vision So, burn me not in the hell fire while You are the place of my hope reside me not in the bottomless pit (hell) while You are indeed the comfort of my eye. O my Master! do not disappoint my expectation in Your benevolence and known favor because in You is my confidence And do not deprive me of Your reward for You are aware of my poverty. my God, If the end of my life has neared and my deeds did not bring me near You then I hereby render my admission of sin as my justification. my God, if You pardon (me), then no one is more worthy of pardoning than You, And if You punish (me), then no one is more just than You in judgment (O' Lord) have mercy toward my loneliness in this life my distress at the time of death, my solitude in the grave my loneliness in the grave my humiliating position when I rise to give account in front of You forgive me what is concealed of my deeds from the human beings and continue to conceal what You have concealed have mercy on me when I am (laying) motionless on the (death) bed when the hands of my beloved relatives turn me around grant me Your grace when I am stretched on the funeral bath while the righteous of my community wash me be kind to me when I am being carried while my relatives surround my coffin be generous to me when I am transported and finally delivered and left alone in my grave have mercy on my solitary confinement in this new residence so that I may not be comforted by anyone but You. O my Master! If You entrust me to myself, I will perish My Master, from whom should I seek help if You do not prevent my falling in whom can I seek shelter if I lose Your help in my slumber To whom would I resort to if You did not relieve my destitution. My Master! Who will be for me and who will have mercy on me if You do not? And whose grace can I anticipate if I lack Your grace on the day of my destitution? where shall I run away from my sins when my fate is concluded? My Master! do not punish me while I hope in You my God, fulfill my hope and secure my fright for my sins are so many I cannot hope in anything but Your pardon My Master! I am asking You for what I do not deserve but You are the Lord of righteousness and the Lord of forgiveness so forgive me and veil me from Your sight with a cloak that masks all my liabilities forgive me so that I may never be asked about it Indeed, You are the possessor of continuous favors, great pardon and generous forgiveness. My God, You are the One who flows His favors [even] on those who do not ask You and on those who reject Your divinity, So, my Master, how about one who asks You and knows with certainty that all creation is yours and the command is for You? blessed and elevated are You O Lord of the worlds My Master! Your slave is at Your doorstep. His desperate need has rooted him before Your hands. He knocks on the gate of Your generosity with his prayer So do not turn You honorable presence away from me and accept from me what I plead for for I have pleaded with this prayer and I am hopeful that You would not turn me down since I have always known of Your kindness and mercy. My God, You are the one who is never burdened by the pleas of the beseecher nor does any receiver decrease You (in Your favors) You are how You describe Yourself and above what we describe. O' my Lord! I ask from You a worthy patience a relief that comes soon, a true speech and a great reward I ask You, O' my Lord, for all good what I know of it or what I do not know I ask You, O' my Lord, for the best of what Your righteous servants have asked You O' the best of who was ever asked and the Most Generous that has ever given grant me my request regarding myself, my family my parents, my children, my close community, and my brethren in You enrich my life, and increase my bravery improve all of my affairs, make me one for whom You have destined a long life, have improved his deeds, completed Your favors on him, and accepted his performance, made him live a good life in permanent joy, utmost integrity, and complete living Indeed, You do as You wish, and not as others wish. O Allah, Distinguish me with Your distinctive remembrance, And do not allow any of what I seek closeness to You with (of good deeds) in the midst of nights or the extremes of days to be an object of pretension, seeking of reputation, arrogance, or extravagance. And cause me to be of those who humble themselves to You.

I swear by Your exalted might and majesty that if You call me to account for my sins I will call upon Your mercy if You call me to account for my meanness I will call upon Your generosity and if You forward me to the hell fire I will inform its inmates about my love for You. My God and my Master! If You were to forgive none but Your friends and those who obey You then to whom would the sinners resort to? And if You were to not honor but the people of loyalty to You, then to whom would the offenders resort to? My God, If You cause me to enter the hell fire it will be the pleasure of Your enemies But if You cause me to enter paradise, it will be the pleasure of Your Prophet, And surely Oh Allah, I know that the pleasure of Your Prophet is more favorable to You than the pleasure of Your enemy. O' my Lord! I ask You to fill my heart with Your love fear of You, belief in Your Book, faith in You, fright from You, and longing for You. O the Possessor of majesty and honor! make me love meeting You and love my meeting grant me in meeting You comfort, happiness and honor.

O Allah, I ask You for a faith which delights my heart And a true certainty until I know that nothing will happen to me except what You have destined for me grant me contentment in life with whatever You have apportioned for me O' the Most Merciful of the merciful ones
