The Sins Of Men

You are Al-Ghafur

The Forgiver and Hider of Faults

I beg you to hide my sins and weaknesses

Like the night hides the brightness of day

And envelopes it in darkness

I know my heart is black

And yet I feel there are droplets of light

Piercing there way through

Just like the bright stars pierce the heavy black velvet cloth of night

Let the remembrance of your beloved names

Burn the darkness of my heart away

As the sun burns the night away
