Confused
Conceited
Condemned

O my Allah!
Consider only You can
Thoughts of such mine

Distracted
Diverted
Divided

O my Allah!
Accept only You can
Prayers of such mine

Fret
Frustrated
Frenzied

O my Allah!
Pacify only You can
Troubles of such mine

Sinned
Stained
Shamed

O my Allah!
Forgive only You can
Deeds of such mine

Your Grace
Munificence
Your Bounty
My life’s booty

O my Allah
I call You
Deem You
With empty hands
And sinful deeds

If me you forgive
I will write
Note on note
Till I meet death.

Seeing my state
Of joy and mercy
Even the atheist
Will faith attest

Even Ridwan would wonder
How a sinner as me would enter
Across the heaven’s doors
Into the world of hours

O my Allah
Your Mercy shall not
A drop of it reduce not

Have me forgiven
Heart and soul enliven

Let me make some gain
In this Harvest some grain
Have a relief from pain
And keep away from sin

O my Allah!
Forgive only You can
Deeds of such mine
