The Dua for the Oppressed

by Shaykh Muhammad ibn Nasir ad-Dari

O You to Whose mercy one flees! You in Whom the one in need and distress seeks refuge!
يَـــا مَـــنْ إلَـــى رَحْـمَـتِـهِ الْـمَـفَـرُّ
ومَـــنْ إلَــيْــهِ يَـلْـجَــأُ الْـمُـضَّـطَـرُ

O Master, You Whose pardon is near! O You Who help all who call on Him!
وَيَــا قَـرِيــبَ الْـعَـفْـوِ يَـــا مَـــوْلاَهُ
وَيَـــا مُـجِـيـبَ كُـــلِّ مَـــن دَعَــــاهُ

We seek Your help, O You who help the weak! You are enough for us, O Rabb!
بِـكَ اسْتَغَثْـنَـا يَــا مُغِـيـثَ الضُّعَـفَـا
فَحَسْـبُـنَـا يَـــا رَبِّ أَنـــت وَكَــفَــى

There is nothing more majestic than Your immense power, and nothing mightier than the might of Your force.
فَــلاَ أَجَــلَّ مِـــن عـظـيـم قُـدْرَتِــكْ
وَلاَ أَعَــزَّ مِــنْ عَـزِيــزِ سَـطْـوَتِـكْ
