Ruling 940

Before takbīrat al‐iḥrām, it is good that one says the following with the intention of rajāʾ:

یَا مُحْسِنُ قَدْ أَتَاكَ الْمُسِيءُ، وَ قَدْ أَمَرْتَ الْمُحْسِنَ أَن یَّـتَجَاوَزَ عَنِ الْمُسِيءِ، أَنْتَ الْمُحْسِنُ وَ أَنَا الْمُسِيءُ، بِحَقِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَّ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ، صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَّ آلِ مُحمَّدٍ، وَ تَجَاوَزْ عَنْ قَبِیحِ مَا تَـعْلَمُ مِنِّي

yā muḥsinu qad atākal musīyʾ, wa qad amartal muḥsina ay yatajāwaza ʿanil musīyʾ, antal muḥsinu wa anal musīyʾ, bihaqqi muḥammadiw wa āli muḥammad, ṣalli ʿalā muḥammadiw wa āli muḥammad, wa tajāwaz ʿan qabīḥi mā taʿlamu minnī

O the Benevolent! A sinful person has come to You, and You have instructed the benevolent to overlook the sinner. You are the Benevolent and I am the sinner. By the right of Muḥammad and the progeny of Muḥammad, bless Muḥammad and the progeny of Muḥammad, and overlook my evil acts of which You are aware.
