TweetIt is required of us to humble ourselves and cry in the court of Allah سبحانه وتعالى:
"O Allah, in the battle against the nafs (base desires) and Shaitaan I am repeatedly defeated, this is an indication of my gradual weakening. When a child is beaten by his stronger apponents, his abba (father) takes pity on him, his mercy then comes to the fore. You are our Rabba, our Creator, Nourisher and Sustainer, please display Your Mercy on us. How long will we allow ourselves to remain entangled in a life of decadent sin?
Let it not be that death finds us in such a state, which will cause our akhirat (hereafter) to be destroyed. O'Allah, Your mercy infinitely exceeds the kindness and mercy of parents. You have allowed one hundredth of Your mercy to descend into this world, that one hundredth has been distributed throughout the creation. It is by this mercy that parents express kindness and compassion for their children, by which animals care for and rear their young, by which people love each other. This mercy prompts a mother to breastfeed her baby which a father slogs to provide and fend for his flock.
When this is the extent of a single percent of your mercy, O You Who possess unlimited and infinite mercy, please manifest a degree of that mercy upon us so that thereby You release us from slavery of nafs (base desire) and Shaitaan, so that we become your slaves."
