Duaa (Supplication) by the Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) in Taif

"Al-Lahuma Elaika Nashku Dh'afa Quwatina Wa-Qilata Hilatina Wa-Hawana A'lan-Nas, ya Arhamar-rahimeen, ya rubal-Mustad'afeen, Anta Rabuna. ila man takiluna illa Qawmin Yastad'ifuna Am illa A'dowin Wakaltahu yakun laka a'lyna Ghadabun fala nubalee. Naoothu biwajhiakal aldhi ashraqat luhudh-Dhulumat was-saluha ali-hi amrad-dunia wal-akhira ala yahal alyna ghadabuk Aou yanzil alina sakhatuk lakal-u'qba hata tarda wala hawla wala quata ala biyk."

"Oh, my Allah! To Thee I complain of the feebleness of my strength, of my lack of resources and of my being unimportant in the eyes of people. Oh, Most Merciful of all those capable of showing mercy! Thou art the Lord of the weak, and Thou art my own Lord. To whom art Thou to entrust me; to an unsympathetic folk who would sullenly frown at me, or to an alien to whom Thou hast given control over my affairs? Not in the least do I care for anything except that I may have Thy protection for myself. I seek shelter in Your light - The light that illuminates the Heavens and dispels all sorts of darkness, and which controls all affairs in this work as well as in the Hereafter. May it never be that I should incur Thy wrath, or that Thou should be displeased with me. I must remove the cause of Thy displeasure until Thou art pleased. There is no strength nor power but through Thee."
