107 - Al-Ma’un
"Audhu billahi minash shaytanirrajeem"
Bismi Llaahi l-raḥmaani l-raḥeem
Araayta allathee yukaththibu bialddeeni;
Did you see the one who denies his religion (the sunnatullah)?
Fathalika allathee yaduAAAAu alyateema;
Who scolds the orphan – pushing and shoving him,
Wala yahuddu AAala taAAami almiskeeni;
And who does not encourage feeding the needy (stingy, selfish)!
So, woe to those who pray (out of custom),
Allatheena hum AAan salatihim sahoona;
Who are heedless (cocooned) of (the experience of the meaning of) their salat (which is an ascension [miraj] to their innermost essential reality; their Rabb).
Allatheena hum yuraoona;
They are the ones who make a show of their deeds,
And prevent good!
I seek refuge in the protective forces of the Names of Allah comprising my Essence from impulses generated by the accursed and rejected (rajim) Satan, which, as a result of preconditioning, causes our sense of illusion to perceive the existent as non-existent and the non-existent as existent, thereby making man believe he is an independent being and body outside the Names of Allah, directing man to the idea of an external deity-God in the heavens.
By the one who is denoted by the name Allah (who created my being with His Names in accord with the meaning of the letter ‘B’), the Rahman, the Rahim.
