You are my goal and my glory
Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammad
In my poverty towards You,
make me rich beyond need of any thing sought,
and accompany me with Your richness
beyond need of any thing desired.
You are my goal and my glory;
to You the returning and the ultimate end.
You comfort and mend the broken.
and You shatter the tyrants;
You take the fearful under Your wing;
and You put fear into the oppressors.
Yours is the Most Sublime Glory.
Glory be to You,
there is no god but You;
You are my reckoner and the best Trustee."
Shaykh Muhyiddin Ibn Al-Arabi
