Ya Rabbi bil-Mustafa


Chorus:
يا ربّ بالمصطفى بلّغ مقاصدنا
Oh my lord, with the chosen one, fulfil our goals
واغفرلنا ما مضى يا واسع الكرم
And forgive us for what has passed (our sins) oh the Most Munificent one!


مُحَمَّدٌ سَيِّدُ الْكَوْنَيْنِ وَ الثَّقَلَيْنِ
Muhammad (SAW) is the leader of both worlds and both creations
وَالْفَرِيْقَيْنِ مِنْ عُرُبٍ وَ عَجَمٍ
And both groups, Arabs and Non-Arabs

Chorus

هُوَالْحَبِيْبُ الْذِيْ تُرْجَى شَفَاعَتُهُ
He is the most beloved, whose intercession is hoped for.
لِكُلِّ هَوْلٍ مِنْ الْأَهْوَالِ مُقْتَحَمِ
For every relentless calamity that comes (on the day of judgement)

Chorus

فَاقَ الْنَبِيِّيْنَ فِيْ خَلْقٍ و خُلُقٍ
He transcends the Prophets (AS), physically and in (noble) character
وَ لَمْ يَدْانُوْهُ فِيْ عِلْمٍ وَلَا كَرَمٍ
And they (the Prophets) cannot come near him in knowledge and nobility

Chorus

فَمَبْلَغُ الْعِلْمِ فِيْهِ أَنَّهُ بَشَرٌ
So the depth of (our) knowledge concerning him, is that he is a man
وَأَنَّهُ خَيْرُ خَلْقِ اللهِ كُلِّهِمِ
And verily he is the best of all the creation of Allah

Chorus

يَا رَبِّ وَاجْعَلْ رَجَائِيْ غَيْرَ مُنْعَكِسٍ
My Lord, make my hopes, not (become) unfulfilled.
لَدَيْكَ وَاجْعَلْ حِسَابِيْ غَيْرَ مُنْخَرِمِ

By you, and make my reckoning not destructive

Chorus
