The Litany of the Daybreak [Wird as-Subh], also called the Recital of Humble Entreaty [Hizb al-Ibtihal].

In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the All-Compassionate
Bismi'llahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Rahim

  Praise be to Allah, Lord of All the Worlds,
  al-hamdu li'llahi Rabbi 'l-'alamin:

  the All-Merciful, the All-Compassionate,
  ar-Rahmani 'r-Rahi:.

  Master of the Day of Reckoning.
  Maliki yawmi 'd-din:

  You alone do we worship, and of You alone do we seek help.
  iyya-ka na'budu wa iyya-ka nasta'in:

  Guide us in the straight path,
  ihdina 's-sirata 'l-mustaqim: 

  the path of those whom You have blessed,
  sirata 'lladhina an'amta 'alai-him:

  not of those who earn Your wrath,
  ghairi 'l-maghdubi 'alai-him wa la 'd-dallin.  (1:1-7)

 

In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the All-Compassionate

Bismi'llahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Rahim

 

  Alif, Lam, Mim. 
  Alif-Lam-Mim :

  This is the Book, no doubt about it; a guidance for the righteous, 
  dhalika 'l-Kitabu la raiba fi-h: hudan li'l-muttaqin:

  who believe in the Unseen, and perform the prayer,
  alladhina yu'minuna bi'l-ghaibi wa yuqimuna 's-salata

  and spend out of what We have provided for them; 
  wa mimma razaqna-hum yunfiqun :

  who believe in what has been sent down to you,
  wa 'lladhina yu'minuna bi-ma unzila ilai-ka

  and what has been sent down before you,
  wa ma unzila min qabli-k :

  and are certain of the Hereafter.
  wa bi'l-akhirati hum yuqinun :

  These follow guidance from their Lord, 
  ula'ika 'ala hudan min Rabbi-him

  and it is they who will prosper. 
  wa ula'ika humu 'l-muflihun.  (2:1-5)

 

  Your God is One God. 
  wa Ilahu-kum Ilahun Wahid :

  There is no god but He, the All Merciful, the All-Compassionate.  
  la ilaha illa Huwa 'r-Rahmanu 'r-Rahim.  (2:163) 

 

  Allah!  There is no god but He, the Living, the Eternal.
  Allahu la ilaha illa Huwa 'l-Hayyu 'l-Qayyum.

  Neither slumber nor sleep can overtake Him.
  la ta'khudhu-hu sinatun wa la nawm.

  To Him belongs whatever there is in the heavens
  la-hu ma fi 's-samawati

  and whatever there is in the earth.
  wa ma fi 'l-ard.

  Who is there to intercede with Him save by His leave?
  man dha 'lladhi yashfa'u 'inda-hu illa bi-idhni-h.

  He knows what is in front of them and what is behind them,
  ya'lamu ma baina aidi-him wa ma khalfa-hum

  while they encompass nothing of His knowledge save what He will.
  wa la yuhituna bi-shai'in min 'ilmi-hi illa bi-ma sha'.

  His throne comprises the heavens and the earth,
  wasi'a kursiyyu-hu 's-samawati wa 'l-ard :

  and He is never weary of preserving them.
  wa la ya'udu-hu hifzu-huma :

  He is the All-High, the All-Glorious. 
  wa Huwa 'l-'Aliyyu 'l-'Azim.  (2:255)

 

  There is no compulsion in religion. 
  la ikraha fi 'd-din:

  The right direction is henceforth distinct from error. 
  qad tabayyana 'r-rushdu mina 'l-ghayy :

  And he who rejects false deities, and believes in Allah,
  fa-man yakfur bi't-taghuti wa yu'min bi'llahi  

  has grasped the most secure handle, which will never break. 
  fa-qadi 'stamsaka bi'l-'urwati 'l-wuthqa la 'nfisama la-ha.

  Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing. 
  wa 'llahu Sami'un 'Alim.  (2:256)

 

  Allah is the Protecting Friend of those who believe. 
  Allahu Waliyyu 'lladhina amanu

  He brings them out of the darkness into the light.
  yukhriju-hum mina 'z-zulumati ila 'n-nur.

  As for those who disbelieve, their patrons are the false deities.
  wa 'lladhina kafaru awliya'u-humu 't-Taghutu

  They bring them out of light into darkness.
  yukhrijuna-hum mina 'n-nuri

  Such are the rightful owners of the Fire,
  ila 'z-zulumat : ula'ika

  wherein they shall dwell eternally. 
  ashabu 'n-nari hum fi-ha khalidun.  (2:257)

 

  Allah bears witness that there is no god but He-
  shahida 'llahu anna-hu la ilaha illa Huwa

  and [so do] the angels and the men of learning-upholding justice. 
  wa 'l-mala'ikatu wa ulu 'l-'ilmi qa'iman bi'l-qist :

  There is no god but He, the Omnipotent, the All-Wise. 
  qa'iman bi'l-qist : la ilaha

  the Omnipotent, the All-Wise. 
  la ilaha illa Huwa 'l-'Azizu 'l-Hakim.  (3:18)

 

  The true religion in the sight of Allah is surrender  [to His will and guidance].
  inna' d-dina 'inda 'llahi 'l-islam 

  Those who received the Book differed only after
  wa ma 'khtalafa 'lladhina utu 'l-Kitaba

  knowledge came to them, through transgression among themselves. 
  illa min ba'di ma ja'a-humu 'l-'ilmu baghyan baina-hum :

  Whoever disbelieves the signs of Allah, Allah is Swift at reckoning. 
  wa man yakfur bi-ayati 'llahi fa-inna 'llaha Sari'u 'l-hisab.  (3:19)

 

  And if they argue with you, say:   'I have surrendered
  fa-in hajju-ka fa-qul aslamtu

  my purpose to Allah and so have those who follow me.' 
  aslamtu wajhiya li'llahi wa mani 'ttaba'a-n :

  And say to those who have received the Book
  wa qul li'lladhina utu 'l-Kitaba

  and do not read:  'Have you surrendered?' 
  wa 'l-ummiyyina a-aslamtum :

  If they surrender, then they are rightly guided,
  fa-in aslamu fa-qadi 'htadaw :

  and if they turn away, then it is your duty only to convey the message. 
  wa in tawallaw fa-inna-ma 'alai-ka 'l-balagh :

  Allah is All-Seeing of His servants. 
   wa 'llahu Basirun bi'l-'ibad. (3:20)

 

  Your Lord is Allah who created the heavens and the earth
  inna Rabba-ka 'lladhi khalaqa 's-samawati wa 'l-arda

  in six Days, then He mounted on the Throne. 
  fi sittati ayyamin thumma 'stawa 'ala 'l-'Arsh :

  He covers the night with the day, which is in haste to follow it,
  yughshi 'l-laila 'n-nahara yatlubu-hu hathithan

  and has made the sun and the moon
  yatlubu-hu hathithan wa 'sh-shamsa wa 'l-qamara

  and the stars subservient by His command.
  wa 'n-nujuma musakhkharatin bi-amri-h :

  His is all creation and commandment. 
  a-la la-hu 'l-khalqu wa 'l-amr :

  Blessed be Allah, the Lord of the Worlds! 
  tabaraka 'llahu Rabbu 'l-'alamin.  (7:54)

 

  Call upon your Lord humbly and in secret;
  ud'u Rabba-kum tadarru'an wa khufya :

  He does not love those who go too far in the wrong direction.  
  inna-hu la yuhibbu 'l-mu'tadin.  (7:55)

 

  Do not cause confusion in the earth after the fair ordering thereof,
  wa la tufsidu fi 'l-ardi ba'da islahi-ha

  and call on Him in fear and hope.
  wa 'd'u-hu khawfan wa tama'a :

  The mercy of Allah is close indeed to those who do good. 
  inna rahmata 'llahi qaribun mina 'l-muhsinin.  (7:56)

 

  Say:  'Cry to Allah, or cry to the All-Merciful. 
  quli 'd'u 'llaha awi 'd'u 'r-Rahman :

  To whichever to cry, His are the Most Beautiful Names. 
  ayya-ma tad'u fa-la-hu 'l-Asma'u 'l-Husna :

  And do not be loud voiced in your worship,
  wa la tajhar bi's-salati-ka

  nor yet silent therein; but follow a way between.'
  wa la tukhafit bi-ha wa 'btaghi baina dhalika sabila.  (17:110)

 

  And say:  'Praise be to Allah, who has not taken to Himself a son,
  wa quli 'l-hamdu li'llahi 'lladhi lam yattakhidh waladan

  and who has no partner in the Sovereignty,
  wa lam yakun la-hu sharikun fi 'l-mulki

  nor has He any protecting friend through dependence.
  wa lam yakun la-hu waliyyun mina 'dh-dhulli 

  And magnify Him with magnificence.' 
  wa kabbir-hu takbira.  (17:111)

 

 Allah is Supremely Great, by far!
 Allahu Akbaru kabira 

 

 Praise be to Allah, with much and frequent praise!
 wa 'l-hamdu li'llahi hamdan kathira 

 

 Glory be to Allah, and His be the praise
 wa subhana 'llahi wa bi-hamdi-hi 

 in both the early morning and the evening time!
 wa bi-hamdi-hi bukratan wa asila.

 

In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the All-Compassionate

Bismi'llahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Rahim

 

  By those who set the ranks in battle order, 
  wa 's-saffati saffan

  and those who drive away with reproof, 
  fa-'z-zajirati zajran

  and those who recite as a Reminder, 
  fa-'taliyati dhikran

  your Lord is surely One; 
  inna Ilaha-kum la-Wahid :

  Lord of the heavens and of the earth
  Rabbu 's-smaawati wa 'l-ardi

  and what is between them,
  wa ma baina-huma

  and Lord of the sun's risings. 
  wa Rabbu 'l-mashariq.

 

  We have adorned the lowest heaven
  inna zayyanna 's-sama'a 'd-dunya

  with the adornment of the planets, 
  bi-zinatini 'l-kawakib :

  with security from every rebellious devil. 
  wa hifzan min kulli shaitanin marid :

 

  They cannot listen to the Highest Chiefs
  la yassamma'unna

  for they are pelted from every side, 
  ila 'l-Mala'i 'l-a'la wa yuqdhafuna min kulli janib. 

  outcast, and theirs is a perpetual torment; 
  duhuran wa la-hum 'adhabun wasib.

 

  Except him who snatches a fragment,
  illa man khatifa 'l-khatfata

  and a piercing flame pursues him. 
  fa-atba'a-hu shihabun thaqib.

 

  Then ask them:  'Are they stronger as a creation,
  fa-'stafti-him a-hum ashaddu khalqan

  or those whom We have created?
  am-man khalaqna :

  We created them of plastic caly. 
  inna khalaqna-hum min tinin lazib.  (37:1-11)

 

 O company of jinn and men, if you have power to penetrate
 ya ma'shara 'l-jinni wa 'l-insi ini 'stata'tuman tanfudhu

 the regions of the heavens and the earth, then penetrate! 
 min aqtari 's-samawati wa 'l-ardi fa-'nfudhu

 You will never penetrate them except with sanction. 
 la tanfudhuna illa bi-sultan.

 So which of the favors of your Lord do the rwo of you deny? 
 fa-bi-ayyi ala'i Rabbi-kuma tukadhdiban.

 There will be sent, against you both, heat of fire
 yursalu 'alai-kuma shuwazun min narin

 and flash of brass, and you will not escape. 
 wa nuhasun fa-la tantasiran :

 So which of the favors of your Lord do the two of you deny? 
 fa-bi-ayyi ala'i Rabbi-kuma tukadhdhiban.  (55:33-36)

 

In the Name of Allah, the All-Merciful, the All-Compassionate
Bismi'llahi 'r-Rahmani 'r-Rahim

 

 O Allah, I take refuge with You, and I seek access to You,
 Allahumma inni a'udhu bi-ka wa atawassalu ilai-ka

 and I direct myself toward You, and I address my humble entreaty to You,
 wa atawajjahu ilai-ka wa atadarra'u ilai-ka

 by invoking the Most Beautiful Names:
 bi-Asma'i-ka 'l-Husna.

 wa 'ala ma huwa fi 'Ilmi-ka 'l-A'la. 

 

 O Knower of the secret and that which is more deeply hidden still! 
 ya 'Alima 's-sirri wa akhfa. 

 O Sustainer of the earth and the sky! 
 ya Qayyuma 'l-ardi wa 's-sama'. 

 O Allah, we are incompetent, inadequate,
 Allahumma inna 'ajizuna qasiruna

 turning to You from deviation and error,
 bira'un ilai-ka mina 'z-zaighi wa 'z-zalali

 as we try to obey what You have commanded,
 min qawlin wa fi'lin wa 'amal.

 in word and deed and action.

  Now Allah be Exalted, the True King! 
  fa-ta'ala 'llahu Maliku 'l-Haqq :

  There is no god but He, the Lord of the Throne of Grace. 
  la ilaha illa Hu: Rabbu 'l-'arshi 'l-karim.  (23:116)

 

  Glory be to Him!  High Exalted be He
  subhana-hu wa ta'ala

  above what they attribute [to Him]!  (6:100)
  'amma yasifun.  (6:100)

 

  The Originator of the heavens and the earth!
  Badi'u 's-samawati wa 'l-ard :

  How can He have a child, when there is for Him no consort,
  anna yakunu la-hu waladun wa lam takun la-hu sahiba :

  when He created all things and is Aware of all things. 
  wa khalaqa kulla shai': wa Huwa bi-kulli shai'in 'Alim.  (6:101)

 

 O Allah, cause us to live in accordance with that,
 Allahumma fa-ahyi-na 'ala dhalik. 

 and cause us to die in accordance with that. 
 wa amit-na 'ala dhalik.

 and restore us to life in accordance with that, 
 wa 'b'ath-na 'ala dhalik.

 and guide us to the realities of that. 
 wa 'hdi-na li-haqa'iqi dhalik.

 O Lord of All the Worlds! 
 ya Rabba 'l-'alamin.

 O He who is the First, before all things,
 ya man Huwa 'l-Awwalu qabla kulli shai'in

 and the Last, after all things,
 wa 'l-Akhiru ba'da kulli shai'.

 and the Outer, above all things,
  wa 'z-Zahiru fawqa kulli shai'.

 and the Inner, below all things,
 wa 'l-Batinu duna kulli shai'.

 and the Irresistible, above all things. 
 wa 'l-Qahiru fawqa kulli shai'.

 

 O Light of lights!  O Knower of the mysteries! 
 ya Nura 'l-anwari ya 'Alima 'l-asrar.

 O Controller of the night and the day! 
 ya Mudabbira 'l-laili wa 'n-nahar.

 O Sovereign Lord, O Almighty One, O All-Prevailing One! 
 ya Maliku ya 'Azizu ya Qahhar.

 O All-Compassionate One, O Ever-Loving One, O All-Forgiving One! 
 ya Rahimu ya Wadudu ya Ghaffar

 O Knower of the invisible realms. 
 ya 'Allama 'l-ghuyub.

 O Transformer of hearts! 
 ya Muqalliba 'l-qulub. 

 O Veiler of faults!  O Forgiver of sins!
 ya Sattara 'l-'uyub.  ya Ghaffara 'dh-dhunub.

 

 O Allah, bless our master Muhammad, Your servant
 Allahumma salli 'ala sayyidi-na Muhammadin 'abdi-ka

 and Your Messenger, the perfect master, the opener, the seal,
 wa Rasuli-ka 's-sayyidi 'l-kamili 'l-fatihi 'l-khatimi

 Your clear Light, and Your truthful and trustworthy Messenger.
 nuri-ka 'l-mubin wa Rasuli-ka 's-sadiqi 'l-amin.

 

 O Allah, grant him excellent merit,
 Allahumma wa ati-hi 'l-fadilata

 and means of access and intercession. 
 wa 'l-wasilata wa 'sh-shafa'a.

 Bestow upon him the praiseworthy station
 wa 'b'ath-hu 'l-maqama 'l-mahmuda 'lladhi

 that You have promised him, the approved intercessor
 wa'adta-hu 'sh-shafi'i 'l-murtada

 and the chosen Prophet.
 wa 'r-Rasuli 'l-mujtaba.

 

 O Allah, bless him and his family,
 Allahumma salli 'alai-hi wa 'ala ali-hi

 as You have blessed Abraham and the family of Abraham. 
 ka-ma sallaita 'ala Ibrahima wa 'ala ali Ibrahima

 Bestow grace upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad,
 wa barik 'ala Muhammadin wa 'ala ali Muhammadin

 as You have bestowed grace upon Abraham
 ka-ma barakta 'ala Ibrahima

 and the family of Abraham, in all the worlds. 
 wa 'ala ali Ibrahima fi 'l-'alamina

 You are Praiseworthy, Glorious,
 inna-ka Hamidun Majidun

 to the extent of the number of Your creatures,
 'adada khalqi-ka

 the good pleasure of Your Own Self,
 wa rida'a Nafsi-ka

 the weight of Your Throne, and the ink of Your Words. 
 wa zinata 'Arshi-ka wa midadi kalimati-ka

 And bless his family and his Companions, one and all,
 wa 'ala ali-hi wa sahbi-hi ajma'ina

 and grant them much peace. 
 wa sallim tasliman kathira.

 

 O Allah, we appeal to You by invoking Your most beautiful Names,
 Allahumma inna nas'alu-ka bi-Asma'i-ka 'l-Husna

 and Your most exalted Attributes, and Your perfect Words,
 wa sifati-ka 'l-'ulya wa kalimati-ka 't-tammati

 and Your revealed Scriptures and Your glorious Book,
 wa kutubi-ka 'l-munzalati wa bi-kitabi-ka 'l-'azizi

 and our master Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace),
 wa bi-sayyidi-na Muhammadin (salla 'llahu 'alai-hi wa sallam)

 Your servant and Your Messenger.
 'abdi-ka wa Rasuli-ka

 

 O Lord of lords!  O Revealer of the Book!  O Swift in reckoning! 
 ya Rabba 'l-arbab:  ya Munazzila 'l-Kitab:  ya Sari'a 'l-hisab: 

 O He who responds when He is called upon! 
 ya man idha du'iya ajab.

 

 O All-Compassionate, O All-Merciful! 
 ya Rahimu ya Rahman:

 O Ever-Near, O Responsive One! 
 ya Qaribu ya Mujibu ya Hannanu ya Mannanu

 O Tender One, O Benefactor! 
 ya Hannanu ya Mannan:

 

 O Lord of Majesty and Honor! 
 ya Dha 'l-Jalali wa 'l-Ikram:

 O Ever-Living One, O Self-Sustaining One! 
 ya Hayyu ya Qayyum.

 

  'Our Lord, give us in this world that which is good,
  Rabba-na ati-na fi 'd-dunya hasanatan

  and in the Hereafter that which is good,
  wa fi 'l-akhirati hasanatan

  and guard us against the torment of the Fire [of Hell].'  
  wa qi-na 'adhaba 'n-nar.  (2:201)

 

 O Allah, we appeal to You for guidance,
 Allahumma inna nas'alu-ka 'l-huda

 and pious devotion, and chastity, and sufficiency. 
 wa 't-tuqa wa 'l-'afafa wa 'l-ghina

 We take refuge with You from the strain of tribulation,
 wa na'udhu bi-ka min jahdi 'l-bala'i

 and the impact of misfortune, and the evil of fate,
 wa darki 'sh-shaqa'i wa su'i 'l-qada'i

 and the malice of enemies.

 O Allah, we ask You for that which is good, for all of it,
 Allahumma inna nas'alu-ka mina 'l-khairi kulli-hi

 both that which is immediate and that which is delayed.
 'ajili-hi wa ajili-h.

 We take refuge with You from that which is evil, from all of it,

 both that which we know and that which we do not know. 
 ma 'alimna min-hu wa ma lam na'lam.

 

 Praise be to You, for You are the One of whom help is sought,
 la-ka 'l-hamdu wa Anta 'l-Musta'anu

 and reliance is placed on You. 
 wa 'alai-ka 't-tuklan.

 There is no power and no strength except through You.
 wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa bi-k. 

 

 O Allah, we ask You for goodness like that asked of You
 Allahumma inna nas'alu-ka min khairin ma sa'ala-ka min-hu

 by Your servant and Your Prophet, our master Muhammad
 'abdu-ka wa Nabiyyu-ka sayyidu-na Muhammadun

 (Allah bless him and give him peace).
 (salla 'llahu 'alai-hi wa sallam).

 

 O Allah, You are my Lord.  There is no god but You. 

 Allahumma Anta Rabbi la ilaha illa Anta

 You have created me, and I am committed to Your covenant

 wa ana 'abdu-ka wa ana 'ala 'ahdi-ka

 and Your promise, as far as I am able.

 wa wa'di-ka ma 'stata't.

 

 I take refuge with You from the evil I have done,

 O All-Forgiving One!  O All-Forgiving One! 
 ya Ghafuru ya Ghafuru

 O All-Forgiving One!  O All-Forgiving One! 
 ya Ghafuru ya Ghafur.
