O Master !


My sorrows are in abundance, O Master !

I humbly need your guidance, O Master !


I am carrying a heavy sack

Please take it off my back.


I am so far, yet you are so near

Please steer the ship of my destiny clear.


I am miserably rueful

You are exceedingly merciful.


My boat is in the whirlpool now

Save me ! Save me ! somehow.


A humble servant of the Prophet can do

What thousands of Kings are unable to do.


To Raza show so much consideration

Please save him from annihilation.


O my Master ! take me to such a port

Where I feel nothing but peace and comfort.


  Imam Ahmad Raza Khan al-Qadiri (may Allah sanctify his soul)
