Qad kafani ‘Ilmu Rabbi

Al-Habib Abdullah Bin Alwi Alhaddad

‫قد كفاني علم ربي‬
My Lord’s knowledge has sufficed me
from asking or choosing

For my du’a and my agonising supplication
is a witness to my poverty

For this secret (reason) I make supplication
in times of ease and times of difficulty

I am a slave whose pride
is in his poverty and obligation

O my Lord and my King
You know my state

And what has settled in my heart
of agonies and preoccupations

Save me with a gentleness
