Yah Gafuru – The Forgiver

Yah Gafuru
Oh God of Mercy! Forgive me!
I have idled my life for years.
I have struggled to win the world and worldly fortunes.
I have dived into sins and never done any good.
My sinful deeds make me fear Your justice.
Yet the greatness of Your compassion makes me hope in You,
Oh Healer of souls.
I have not merited paradise by my deeds,
And I cannot endure the pains of hell.
So I entrust myself simply to Your grace.
Wash me of my sins, Yah Gafuru!
Give unto me the robe of the redeemed.
And in Your mercy, cast me not away from Your presence.

A prayer from the heart of brother Hakeem, a dervish in Nigeria. May Allah bless him and forgive me.

Ya Haqq!

    We sometimes tend to neglect that one of the attributes of God is that he is the supreme Forgiver!
