CONFESSION OF A HUMBLE SERVANT



By
Ibn Abdillahi As-sudaisiy Al-Iloori

سَـتَرْتَ عُيُوبِي كُلَّهَا عَنْ عُيُونِهِمْ* 
وَأَلْبَسْتَنِي ثَوباً جَمِيلاً مِنَ السِّتْ                 

O Allāh! You hid all my faults from their preying eyes. And You cloaked me with a beautiful attire (by covering my deficiencies)

فَصَـارُوا يُحِبُونِي وَلَسْتُ أَنَا الذِي*
 أُحَبُّ وَلَكِنْ شَبَّهُـونِيَ بِالغَيْرِ                      

They started showing me love, even though I’m not a loveable (but due to Your grace, O Allāh) they mistook me for a better person.

فَحَقِّقْ رَجَـاهُمْ يَا إِلَهِي، وَخَالِقِي*
بِحَقِّ الذِي أَنْزَلْتَ فِي مُحْكَمِ الذِّكْرِ                

My Lord and Creator, make their good thoughts about me manifest in me. I seek this, in the honour of your words revealed in the Qur’ān.

وَلَا تَفْضَحَنْ سِـرِي إِلَهِيَ بَيْنَهُمْ
 وَلَا تُخْـزِنِي مَوْلاَيَ فِي مَـوقِفِ الحَشْرِ           

My Lord, never expose my secrets to them. My Guardian, do not disgrace me at the resurrection ground.
