"We make our own fortunes and call them fate..." - Benjamin Disraeli
(13 May - 17 June 1992)
We intend to perform the Umrah and Haj,
render it easy for us,
and accept it from us...
|(Resting before the next prayer time)|
open for us the doors of Your mercies,
and make easy for us the means of livelihood..
|(Covering from the heat)|
Give us contentment in that which
You have provided for us
and bestow us with Barakat therein,
and be a successor of all whom we have left behind...
|(After walking for almost 7 miles)|
grant us goodnness in this world,
and goodness in the hereafter
and save us from the punishment of the fire...
|(Our tent in Padang Arafah)|
We ask You to exhalt our fame
and to ease us of our burdens,to set right our affairs,
to purify our heart
and to appoint light in our grave,
to remit from us our sins
and to bestow unto us the highest of degrees in Paradise...
|(With friends at Jabal Rahmah)|
We ask You for beneficial knowledge.
and abundance in provision,
and cure us from every ailment...
|(From the top of Jabal Rahmah)|
Let not any of our sins go unfogiven,
nor any of our worries undispelled,
nor any of our needs unfulfilled.
Ease our task for us,
relieve our hearts and minds,
and end righteously our deeds...
