??? Amen َى التَّوْبَةِ مِنْ بَعْدِ جَرَاءَتِيْ عَلَى مَعْصِيَتِكَ فَإِنِّي اسْتَغْفَرْتُكَ فَاغْفِرْلِي ْ وَمَا عَمِلْتُ فِيْهَا مِمَّا تَرْضَى وَوَعَدْتَّنِي عَلَيْهِ الثَّوَابَ فَأَسْئَلُكَ أَنْ تَتَبَّ لَ مِنِّيْ وَلَا تَقْطَعْ رَجَائِيْ مِنْكَ يَا كَرِيْمُ

Allah SWT alâ ma’shiyatik. Fa innî astaghfiruka, faghfirlî wa mâ ‘amiltu fîhâ mimmâ tardhâ, wa wa’attanî ‘alaihits tsawâba, fa’as’aluka an tataqabbala minnî wa lâ taqtha’ rajâ’î minka yâ karîm.

as it means,

My Lord, I ask forgiveness for my actions this year which You have prohibited-while I have not had time to repent, my actions that You understand because of Your mercy-while You are able to torture me, and deeds (sins) that You command to repent-while I lunge at them means disobeying you. My Lord, I hope You will accept my deeds that You have blessed in this year and my deeds that You have promised to reward. Don’t make me despair. O Most Gracious God.”
