 In the name of Allah, the Beneficent the Merciful.

In the name of Allah, I do not ask for but His generosity, I do not fear but His justice,  I do not count on but His words, I do not cling and hold to but His rope (love and friendship of Muhammad (saw) and Aal e Muhammad asws).

Unto Thee I draw near, O Owner of amnesty and approval! Away from oppression and hostility,  from the ups and downs, and the chronic pains and sorrows,  from the course of events (life)coming to an end before provisions for the Hereafter are put in order and readiness. Thee alone I ask for guidance unto that which is good, set right and put in order,  Thee alone I ask for help while I make efforts to become better, and get what I want.

Unto Thee alone I turn to for health and welfare, and its completion, together with peace and security, and its continuity.

I take refuge with Thee, O Lord, from playing into the hands of tricky shaitans.

And with the help of Thy authority and power keep clear of fascism and reign of terror.

Accept my prayers and fasts I had, so far, given effect to,  and let my tomorrow, and that which comes after it, be better than the hours and the time I am in today,  let my family, friends and community look up to me, and love me dearly, and keep me safe whether I am awake or asleep,  for Thou art Allah, the Best Guardian, and Thou art the Most Merciful!

O my Allah, today I stand before Thee free from the guilt of “giving an associate to Allah” (shirk) or defection and desertion, and shall be in the same position day after day hence after, and act with faithfulness and sincerity towards Thee, and pray, hopeful of getting a favorable answer, stay obedient in Thy service, looking forward to obtain just rewards.

Send blessings on Muhammad Thy best creation, who invited mankind unto Thy Religion, Islam,  and keep me for Thy self in honor and glory in the name of Thy Majesty and Might, which neither decline nor lose power, and protect me through Thy  vision which rests not, nor is ever inattentive,  bring to fullness and maturity every work I undertake by giving myself entirely up to Thy will and pleasure, and keep me alive till death under Thy amnesty, Verily Thou art Forgiving, Merciful.

O Allah! Send blessings on Muhammad and on the Progeny of Muhammad.
