Bismillaah ar-Rahman ar-Raheem
Idhaa jaa a’ nasrullaahi wal fathu
Wa ra aitan naasa yadkhuluuna fee deenil laahi afwaaja
Fasabbih bi hamdi rabbika wastaghfirhu
innahuu kaana tawaaba

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
When God’s succor comes, and victory
and thou seest people enter God’s religion in hosts,
extol thy Sustainer’s limitless glory, and praise Him, and seek His forgiveness:
for, behold, He is ever an acceptor of repentance.

Translated by Muhammad Asad
