اِلهِيْ عَبْدُكَ الْعَاصِيْ أَتَاكَا          مُقِرَا بِالذُّنُوْبِ وَ قَدْ دَعَاكَا

َفَإِنْ تَغْفِرْ فَأَنْتَ لِذَاكَ أَهْلٌ        وَ إِنْ تَطْرُدْ فَمَن يَّرْحَمُ سِوَاكَا

“O my Lord, your sinful servant has come to You

Whilst confessing his sins he supplicates to You,

If You forgive then indeed You are in this matter able

And if You turn me away then who will have mercy apart from you”

[Ibrahim bin Adham]
