Don't Judge Me, O Allah!


Don't judge me, O Allah, on the Day of Resurrection!
This sinner doesn't want a trial, wants your love and compassion! !
Quite knowingly throughout my life
sins have accumulated so rife,
I can't hope to survive your judgment and scrutiny;
Don't judge me, O Allah, don't judge me!
If you really wish to judge, why the name Rahman, the Most Kind?
Why did you give the knowledge that by that name salvation we will find!
On that Day, as a humble mendicant,
when I will beg of you, O Lord, the Dominant!
Will you be able to turn me away with hands empty?
Don't judge me, O Allah, don't judge me!
