O Ar-Rahman – Please forgive me

Another reflection for these last 10 nights!

I try, my desires I defy…
I’m strong… But for how long?

Everything around me calls me to haraam,
I hold back, staying away from the Satanic alarm…

The blessed days are coming to an end…
It’s now or never, O Allah please help me make amends!

I come to you helpless,
I fear that day when all will become senseless!
I come to you in pain,
With mistakes, I have become stained,

You forgive, this I surely believe,
You forget, with You I’m not in debt…

Ya Ar-Rahman forgive me…

And don’t deprive me of your eternal bliss… :(
