Ruling 525

It is recommended that this duʿāʾ be impressed upon the dying person in a manner that he understands:

اَللّٰهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِيَ الْکَثِيرَ مِن مَّعَاصِيكَ، وَ اقْـبَلْ مِنِّيَ الْیَسِيرَ مِنْ طَاعَتِكَ،

یَا مَن یَّـقْبَلُ الْیَسِيرَ وَ یَعْفُو عَنِ الْکَثِيرِ، اِقْـبَلْ مِنِّيَ الْیَسِيرَ وَ اعْفُ عَنِّيَ الْکَثِيرَ، إنَّكَ اَنْتَ الْعَفُوُّ الْغَفُورُ، اَللّٰهُمَّ ارْحَمْنِي فَإِنَّكَ رَحِیمٌ

allāhummagh fir liyal kathīra mim maʿāṣīk, waqbal minnīyal yasīra min ṭāʿatik, yā may yaqbalul yasīra wa yaʿfū ʿanil kathīr, iqbal minnīyal yasīra waʿ fu ʿannīyal kathīr, innaka antal ʿafuwwul ghafūr, allāhummar ḥamnī faʾinnaka raḥīm

O Allah! Pardon the many times I have disobeyed You, and accept the few instances when I have obeyed You. O You Who accept the few and pardon the many! Accept from me what are few and pardon me for the many. Indeed, You are the All-Pardoning, the All-Forgiving. O Allah! Have mercy on me, for You are the Ever-Merciful.
