When I look at my sins I find them plenty,
But when I recount Allah's favor upon me I find it infinite.
I have no hope in my good deeds,I only hope in Allah's mercy.
He is my Guardian, He is my Creator,
And I have entrusted myself unto Him as one who is weak and frail.
If I am forgiven it is because of His Mercy,
And if I am not forgiven, what can I do, what will be my fate?
Abu Nuwas, Al-Munabbihat
