a prayer from ramadan night vigils

Astaghfirullah! Astaghfirullah! Astaghfirullah!
I seek forgiveness of Allah! I seek forgiveness of Allah! I seek forgiveness of Allah!

Ya Allah! Ya Zul Jalali wal Ikram
O Allah! O Sublime, the Most Generous Lord!

Ya Muqallibal Qulub
O The Transformer of Hearts -
Please remove pride from my heart and replace with humility instead.

O You Who call us to colour ourselves with Your Colour, Sibghata Allahi, 
O You Who command us to receive Your Divine character traits, Takhalluq bi akhlaq Allah -
Please remove arrogance from my character and replace with politeness instead.

Indeed You love not those who are arrogant and only the deeply polite ones are admitted at Your Presence,
in the Divine Court of Your Kingdom.

O You Who is the Most Beautiful beyond every imperfect imagination -
Please remove harshness from my tongue and replace with sweetness instead.

Indeed You love all that is beautiful. InnAllaha Jameel wa yuhibbul jamaal.

Madad Ya Ghafurur Rahim. 
Please assist me O the Most Forgiving, Most Tenderly Compassionate.

Ameen, Ya Malikal Qulub, Ya Rabbal Arshil Azeem, Ya Rabbal Alameen.
So be it, O Master of Hearts, O Lord of Mystic Throne, O Lord of the Multiverse.
