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)
