 In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful, All praise is for Allah alone who was not in need of any witness when He created the heavens and the earth

Did not choose for Himself an associate when He made ready and let go the “breathing spirits”

Has no partner in His divinity; no one can ever wish to get at the bottom of or take hold of the secrets of His Oneness

Tongue-tied and dumbfounded become expression and style while trying to gain an understanding of His attributes, reason and intellect bewilder, all amiss while making an effort to know “what He is”

Deporting themselves with humility, the proud and the powerful cringe and wince in awe of His majesty, their corrupt faces showing panicky embarrassment, in abject fear, and all the important arrogant cast a stealthy glance upon His greatness and bury their faces in shame

So all praise is for Thee alone, following one another, continuous, without interruption, tied together

And His blessings be upon His Messenger, forever and ever, and His greetings till eternity and beyond

O my Allah let me mend, improve and answer the purpose in the early part of this day, in the middle, work for my living and make progress, and in the end succeed well

I take refuge with Thee, from the day whose beginning is full of apprehensions, midpoint is filled with anxiety and restlessness, and end is replete with pain and suffering

O my Allah! I seek Thy forgiveness, for every solemn pledge I made, for every promise I undertook to fulfill, and every obligation I stood security for, then did not make good any

I beseech Thee for forgiveness in the matter of wrongs done to Thy servants by me. Whosoever among Thy male servants or female servants

Thinks that he or she did receive wrongful treatment from me, either with regard to his or her “nafs” or good fame

Or property, or friends and family, or children, or by speaking evil of him or her and in their absence, I had defamed the fair name

Or treated harshly, and took liberties, out of bias and partiality, or lust and ambition, or contempt, or in the best of emotions, or in bad faith, or in partisanship and fanaticism

Regardless if he or she was absent or present, living or dead

Thereafter it was out of my hand and beyond my means to make restitution and get release from the burden I make a request to Thee. O’ He alone who controls the will to satisfy wants and desires, they come at call unto His direction, striving in speed towards His decisive dispensation

To send blessings upon Muhammad (saws) wa Aal e Muhammad (asws)

And make peace between me and him (or her) to what degree and in what manner Thou deems fit and for me make a gift of Thy mercy

 Verily Thou art never at a disadvantage because of forgiveness nor do Thou suffer any loss due to doing favors, O’ The Most Merciful

O’ Allah! Give me on every Monday two gifts, peace of mind in the early part on account of obeying Thee in all matters

Ease and comfort in the later part due to receiving Thy indulgence, O’ He who is “ILAAH” (the One True God) no one can forgive sins except for He

O Allah! Send blessings on Muhammad (saw) wa Aal e Muhammad (asws)
