Thanks and all praise be to Allah who says: “And when my servants ask you about Me, then say: surly I am near. I answer the prayer of the supplicant when he prays to Me. So let them also, with a will, listen to My call, and believe in Me, in order that they may walk in the right way” [2:186].
I praise Him, thank Him, repent to Him and ask Him for His forgiveness. And I declare and bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, alone, there is no partner to Him, He said: “And ask Allah of His bounty surely, Allah is ever knower of all things” [4:32]. And I declare and bear witness the Muhammad is the servant of Allah and His Messenger. Allah has revealed to Him: “Or, who answers the distressed person when he calls upon Him, and removes the evil, and has made you (mankind) viceroys of the earth?” [27:62].
Supplication is to call upon Allah, the Exalted & Glorious, in devotion, sincerity, solemnity and complete submissiveness. Therefore Allah, glory be to Him, said: And He is the most truthful of Sayers “O mankind, call upon your Allah humbly and in secret, surely He does not love the transgressors. And do not work confusion in the earth, after it has been set in order, and call upon Him in fear and hope. Surely, the mercy of Allah is (always) near to those who do good” [7:55,56].
The Supplication, which a Muslim has been instructed to make, reflects the one single attitude of submission, humility and closeness to Allah. It is an expression of his sense of nearness to Allah, of His Might and Power, of his confidence in His mercy, grace and blessings.
Abu Huraira (R) narrated: “Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said: “Our Allah, the Blessed and Exalted, descends every night to the heaven of the world when the last third of the night remains and says: “Who supplicates Me so that I may respond to his invocation? Who asks Me for something so that I may give (it to) him? Who asks Me forgiveness so that I may forgive him?” [Agreed Upon].
So Allah, glory be to Him, loves His servant when he calls upon Him, but He becomes angry when a servant calls upon created beings.
We invoke Allah, the Blessed and the Superior, to make this humble work purely for His sake, “And our success (in our task) can only come from Allah. In Him we trust and unto Him we turn (repentant)” [11:88]. He (Allah) is sufficient for us, and He is an Excellent Guardian.
The supplications are accepted under certain conditions
On the authority of Abu Huraira (R), who said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: “Allah the Almighty is good and accepts only that which is good. Allah has commanded the Faithful to do that which is commanded the Messengers, and the Almighty has said: “O ye Messengers! Eat of the good things, and do right” [23:51] And Allah the Almighty has said: “O ye who believe! Eat of the good things wherewith We have provided you” [2:172]. Then he mentioned (the case of) a man who, having journeyed far, is dishevelled and dusty and who spreads out his hands to the sky (saying): O Allah! O Allah! While his food is unlawful, his drink is unlawful, his clothing is unlawful, and he is nourished unlawfully, So how can he be answered!” [Sahih Muslim].
One should invoke Allah with strong conviction that his request should be granted
Abu Huraira narrated that the Prophet (PBUH) said: “(O mankind) call upon Allah with hope and single-minded devotion that Allah – in His Infinite Mercy – would respond to your invocation, and know that Allah does not respond to the supplication of a heart which is heedless and toying as with trifles” [At-Termithy].
Supplication should be made with conviction and will
Abu Huraira narrated that the Prophet said: “None of you should say: O Allah! Forgive me if you wish, or Bestow Your mercy on me if You wish, or provide me with means of subsistence if You wish, but he should be firm in his request, for Allah does what he wills and nobody can force Him (to do anything)” [Agreed Upon].
Supplication is granted if the supplicant does not show impatience
Abu Huraira narrated that Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said: “The supplication of anyone of you is granted (by Allah) as long as he does not grow impatient and says: I supplicated but it was not granted” [Agreed Upon].
The raising of the hands on invoking (Allah)
Anas narrated, The Prophet (PBUH) raised his hands till I saw the whiteness of his armpits [Al-Bukhari].
Abu Huraira reported: Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) as saying: “Two are the expressions which are light on the tongue, but heavy in scale, dear to the Compassionate One: Glory be to Allah and praise is due to Him; Glory be to Allah, the Great” [Agreed Upon].
Abu Huraira reported: Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) as saying: “The uttering of (these words): Glory be to Allah, all praise is due to Allah, there is none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, and Allah is the Greatest, is dearer to me than anything over which the sun rises” [Agreed Upon].
Obedience of Allah in affluent circumstances avails in hard circumstances
Abdullah the son of Abbas narrated: One day I was behind – riding behind him on the same mount – the Prophet (PBUH) and he said to me: “O young man! I shall teach you some words (of advice): Be mindful of Allah, so Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah, and you will find Him in front of you. If you ask, ask of Allah: if you seek help, seek help of Allah. Know that if the Nation were to gather together to benefit you with anything, it would benefit you only with something that Allah had already prescribed for you, and that if they gather together to harm you with anything, they would harm you only with something Allah had already prescribed for you. The pens have been lifted and the pages have dried” (i.e. what has been written and decreed cannot be altered) [At-Tirmthy].
In a version other than that of At-Tirmthy it reads: “Be mindful Allah, you will find Him before you. Get to know Allah in prosperity and He will know you in adversity. Know that what has passed you by was not going to befall you and that what has befallen you was not going to pass you by. And know that victory comes with patience, relief with affliction, and ease with hardship”
THE MERIT OF PRONOUNCING TAHLIL AND TASBIH
Abu Huraira reported: Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) as saying: He who uttered these words: “La Ilaha Ila Allah Wahadahu La Sharika Lahu Lahu Almulk Wa Lahu Alhamd Wahua Ala Kul Shai’in Kadeer” There is none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the One, having no partner with Him. Sovereignty belongs to Him and all the praise is due to Him, and He is Potent over everything, One hundred times every day there is a reward of emancipating ten slaves for him, and there are recorded hundred virtues to his credit, and hundred vices are blotted out from his scroll, and that is a safeguard for him against the Satan on that day till evening and no one brings anything more excellent than this, except one who has done more than this (who utters these words more than one hundred times and does more good acts) and he who utters: “Glory be to Allah, and all praise is due to Him – one hundred times a day, his sins are obliterated even if they are equal to the extent of the foam of the ocean” [Agreed Upon].
RETIRING TO SLEEP
In your name, O Allah, I lay my side (to sleep). And by (Your leave) raise it up. So if you take away my soul (during sleep) forgive it, and if You send it back (after sleep) protect it even as You protect Your pious servants.
Aaishah narrated: Whenever the Prophet (PBUH) went to bed every night, he used to join his hands together and blow over them after reciting Surat Al-Ikhlas, Surat Al-Falaq and Surat An-Nas, and then rub his hands over whatever parts of his body he was able to rub, starting with his head, face and front of his body. He used to do that three times. [Al-Bukhary].
Praise be to Allah who gave us life after death and unto Him will be the return.
O Allah I seek refuge in You from male and female devils.
(I seek your forgiveness) (Grant me Your forgiveness, all praise is due to Allah who has removed the harm from my body and granted me a good health) (All praises are for Allah who has made me taste its sweet, and kept its benefit – or energy – in my body, and banished its harm from my body).
LOOKING IN A MIRROR
O Allah You made my physical constitution good so make my disposition good too and keep my face safe from hellfire.
MAKING WUDU (ABLUTION)

In the name of Allah. There is no deity save Him.
(O Allah I ask You the good in it and the good for which it is made. And I seek Your protection from the evil in it and the evil for which it is made) (Moaz Ebn Anas reported: Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said: “He who put on a new dress then said: All praise belongs to Allah who has dressed this on me and given me of it without a might and strength of mine, then Allah will forgive all his past sins
BEGINNING THE MEAL

LEAVING THE HOUSE

O Allah, I seek protection by you not to stray or be thrown out of the right path, not to make or be caused to make a mistake, not to oppress or be oppressed, not to speak or be spoken to foolishly”.
ENTERING THE HOUSE
(O Allah I ask You (to grant me) the best entering and the best exit. In the name of Allah we entered, and in the name of Allah we left, and upon Allah we depend – then say salam (greet) to his family).
TO THE SNEEZER IF HE/SHE PRASISE ALLAH
Abu Huraira reported: Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said: “If anyone of you sneezes. He/she should say “Al-Hamdu-lillah” (Praise be to Allah), and his (Muslim) brother or companion should say to him “Yar-hamuka Allah” (may Allah bestow His mercy on you). When the latter says: “Yar-hamuka Allah, the former should say: “Yahdikum Allah Wa Yuslih Balakum” (may Allah give you guidance and improve your condition) – [Al-Bukhari].
ENTERING THE MOSQUE
In the name of Allah. O Allah Bless Muhammad. O Allah Open Your gates of mercy for me.
LEAVING THE MOSQUE
O Allah I beg of You Your bounty.
LEAVING A MEETING
Abu Huraira narrated that Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said: “He who sits in a meeting and utters much of vain talk, then says before leaving: Glory be to You, O Allah, and praise is due to You. I bear witness that there is none has the right to be worshipped but You. I beg Your forgiveness and repent to You. Surely, all what he sinned in that meeting is forgiven by Allah” [At-Termithy]
ON HEARING THE AZAN
Abu Said Al-Khudri reported: the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: “Whenever you hear the Azan, say what the Moazen is saying” [Agreed Upon].
ON HEARING THE AZAN
Omar Ebn Al-Khattab reported: the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said: “When the Moazen says: Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, one of you should make this response: Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest. When the Moazen says: I testify that there is none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, one should respond: I testify that there is none has the right to be worshipped but Allah. When the Moazen says: I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, one should respond: I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. When the Moazen says: Come to prayer, one should respond: There is no might and no power except with Allah. When the Moazen says: Come to success, one should respond: There is no might and no power except with Allah. When the Moazen says: Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest, one should respond: Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the Greatest. When the Moazen says: There is none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, one should respond: There is none has the right to be worshipped but Allah. He who makes a response from his heart, he will enter paradise” [Sahih Muslim].
AFTER LISTENING TO THE AZAN
(O Allah! Allah of this perfect call and of the regular prayer, which is going to be established! Kindly give Muhammad the right of intercession and superiority and raise him from the death (on the Day of Resurrection) to the best and the highest place in Paradise which You promised him) (I testify that there is none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and Muhammad is the servant of Allah and His Messenger (and that) I am satisfied with Allah as my Lord, with Muhammad as Messenger, and with Islam as Deen (religion or code of life)).
SUPPLICATION IN THE PRAYER
OPENING THE PRAYER
“I have turned my face, firmly and truly, towards One Who is the originator of the heaven and the earth, being ever inclined to Allah, and I am not of the polytheists. Truly, my prayer and my service of sacrifice and my life and my death are all for Allah, the Lord of the worlds; there is no partner with Him and this is what I have been commanded (to profess and believe) and I am of those who surrenders (unto Him)”
“O Allah! Set me far away from my sins (faults) as You have set the East far away from the West. O Allah! Clean me from sins as a white garment is cleaned from dirt (after thorough washing) O Allah! (Wash off my sins with water, snow and hail)
Abu Huraira narrated that Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said: “When the Imam Says: Aameen, then you should all say: Aameen, for the angels say: Aameen, at that time, and he whose (Aameen) coincides with the (Aameen) of the angels, all his past sins will be forgiven” [Sahih Al-Bukhari].
(O Allah! It is for You that I bowed, I affirm my faith in You and I submit to You, and submit humbly before You my hearing, my eyesight, my brain and my marrow, my bone, my nerve).
RAISING YOUR HEAD AGAIN
(O Allah! Our Lord, praise is due to You, (the praise) with which is filled the heavens and the earth, and with which is filled that (space) which exists between them, and filled with anything that You desires afterward).
(O Allah! It is to You I prostrate myself and it is in You I affirm my faith, and I submit to You. My face is submitted before One Who created it, and shaped it, and opened its faculties of hearing and seeing. Blessed is Allah, the best of Creators).
Abu Huraira narrated that Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said: “The nearest a servant comes to his Lord is when he is prostrating himself, so increase in number of supplications” [Sahih Muslim].
BETWEEN TASHAHHUD & PRONOUNCING OF SALUTATION
(O my Lord! Forgive me of the earlier and later, secret and open (sins) and that where I made transgression and that You Know better Than I. You are the Promoter and the Retarder. There is none has the right to be worshipped but You).
BEFORE THE SALAM
“O Allah! I seek refuge with You from the torment of the grave, and I seek refuge with You from the trial of maseeh ad Dajjal and I seek refuge with You from the trial and afflictions of life and death. O Allah! I seek refuge with You from the sins and from being in debt”
AFTER THE PRAYER
Abu Huraira narrated that Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said: “If anyone extols Allah after every prayer thirty-three times, and praises Allah thirty-three times, and declares His Greatness thirty-three times, ninety-nine times in all, and says to complete a hundred: There is none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, alone having no partner with Him, to Him belongs sovereignty and to Him is praise due, and He is Potent over everything, his sins will be forgiven even if these are as abundant as the foam of the sea” [Sahih Muslim].
“O Allah! You are Peace, and peace comes from You, Blessed are You: O Possessor of Glory and Honour
“O Allah! Help me for Your remembrance, and Your gratitude and the best worship for You”
FOR THE DEAD IN THE FUNERAL PRAYER
“O Allah! Forgive him/her, have a mercy upon him/her, give him/her peace and absolve him/her. Receive him/her with honour and make him/her grave spacious, wash him/her with water, snow and hail. Cleanse him/her from faults as You wouldst cleanse a white garment from impurity and give him/her an abode, in exchange, more excellent than his/her home (in the world), and a family better than his/her family, and wife/husband better than his/her wife/husband. Admit his/her to the Paradise, and protect him/her from the torment of the grave and the torment of the Fire
“O Allah! Grant forgiveness to our living and to our dead, and to those who are present and to those who are absent, and to our young and to our old folk, and to our males, and our females. O Allah! Whomsoever You grant to live, from among us, help him/her to live in Islam (as Muslim), and whomsoever of us You cause to die, help him/her to die in faith (as believer). O Allah! Do not deprive us of the reward for patience on his/her loss, and do not make us subject to trial after him/her
SUPPLICATION IN THE FASTING
FASTING & SEEING THE CRESCENT
Abdul Allah Ibn Omar narrated: Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) used to say, whenever he saw the crescent: “Allah is the Greatest, O Allah! Make it forthcoming to us with blessedness (or security) and faith and safely and Islam (Submission to Allah), and welfare that which You love and please. Allah is my Lord and your Lord. It is the crescent of good and right, It is the crescent of good and right, It is the crescent of good and right. I believe in Allah, who has created you. O Allah! I ask you of the blessing of this month, and the good of the destiny, and I seek refuge in You from the evil of it
BREAKS THE FAST
“The thirst has vanished, vessels have been moistened and reward is confirmed if Allah, glory be to Him, Wills”
“O Allah! Only for Your Sake I have fated and now I break the fast with the food, which You have given me, so accept from me. Truly! You, only You, are the All-Hearing, the All-Knowing”
“All praise are for Allah Who has enable me so I have fasted, and He has provided for me sustenance so I have broken the fast”
THE NIGHT OF MAJESTY (LAILAT AL-QADR)
“O Allah! You are the one who grants pardon for sins, You love to pardon, So pardon me”
SUPPLICATION IN THE HAJJ
SETS OUT FOR JOURNEY
“Allahu-Akbar Allahu-Akbar Allahu-Akbar”
“Glorified be He Who has subdued these to our (use), and we were not ourselves powerful enough to subdue them, and to our Lord, surly, shall we turn back!”
“O Allah! We seek righteousness and piety from You in this journey of ours and the act which pleases You. O Allah! Facilitate this journey of ours, and make its distance easy for us. O Allah! You are (our) companion during the journey, and guardian of (our) family. O Allah! I seek refuge with You from hardships of the journey, gloominess of the sights, and finding of evil changes in property and family and children on return” In your way back you should utter these words and make this addition to them: “We are returning, repentant, worshipping our Lord, and praising Him”
RECITATION OF TALBIYA
“O Allah! Here I do respond for Your call to Hajj” If in state of fear to complete Hajj, you may make a conditional intention by saying: “If anything prevent me to complete the Hajj my place is where that thing obstructed me to complete it”
“O Allah! Grant me a residence and bestow a legal sustenance unto me”
SEEING THE KA’ABAH
“O Allah! This sanctuary is Your sanctuary, this city is Your city, the security is Your security and the slave is Your slave. I have come to You from far away lands, burdened with many sins, and encumbered with misdeeds. I beseech You as those who are in dire need of You, who fear Your punishment, to favour me with Your forgiveness, and to cause me to enter Your vast Paradise, the Paradise of Bliss. O Allah! This is Your sanctuary and the Sanctuary of Your Messenger, forbid my flesh, blood and bones to the fire. O Allah! Guard me from Your punishment on the day You will bring back to life Your slaves. I beseech You, as You are Allah, there is none has the right to be worshipped but You, the Beneficent, the Merciful, to shower Your Blessings and peace unto Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) and unto his family. Great peace for ever” Then the Pilgrim may choose any supplication he/she likes best and offer it.
BEGINNING OF TAWAF
“Bismillah, Allahu Akbar” – “In the name of Allah, Allah is the Greatest. O Allah! I pledge to have faith in You, firm conviction in Your (revealed) Book (The Qura’an), fulfilment of the covenant which I did to You and to follow tradition (Sunnah) of Your Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)” – “O Allah! Let my Pilgrimage be accepted, my sins remitted and my endeavour rewarded” – “O Allah! Grant us pardon and mercy, overlook what You know. You are the Mighty, the Glorious. O Allah! Our Lord! Give unto us in this world that which is best, and in the Hereafter that which is best, and guard us from the punishment of fire”
DRINKING ZAMZAM WATER
AL-SAFA & AL-MARWAH
“Allah is Greatest, Allah is Greatest, Allah is Greatest. Allah is Greatest and High Exalted (beyond measure), Praise be to Allah and Glory be unto Him, the Mighty in the morn and evening. There is none has the right to be worshipped but Allah, alone, Who has fulfilled His promise, bring victory to His slave and defeated the clans, all alone. Naught preceded Him nor comes after Him. He gives life and He gives death, He is ever alive and does not die. In His hand is the good and (by His will) our destiny is decided. Lo! He is able to do all things. O my Lord! Forgive my sins and have mercy upon me. Grant me Your pardon, Overlook that which You know, because You know what we do not know, surely! You, only You, are the Mighty, the Glorious.
“Our Lord! Save us from the Punishment of fire, and make us win, rejoice and optimistic, with Your righteous slaves, and with those on whom Allah has bestowed His blessings, of the Prophets, the Sincere (lovers of Truth), the Martyrs and the Righteous. And the best company are these. That grace is from Allah (unto His slaves), and sufficient is Allah, the all – Knowing. Truly, indeed! None has the right to be worshipped but Allah. There is no god but Allah who deserves to be worshipped. There is no god but Allah and we worship none but Him, with sincere devotion to Him in religion, even though the unbelievers may hate it.
Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said: “The best supplication is the one on the day of Arafat and the best supplication which I and the Messengers preceding me offered is, “There is no got but Allah. He is Alone, having no partner. For Him is the Kingdom and all the Praises. He causes life and death and He has power over everything.”
The (most superior) of invocation for asking Allah’s forgiveness.
“O Allah! You are my Lord! None has the right to be worshipped but You. You created me and I am Your slave, and I am faithful to my covenant and my promise (To You) as much as I can. I seek refuge with You from all the evil I have done. I acknowledge before You all the blessings You have bestowed upon me, and I confess to You all my sins. So I entrust You to forgive my sins, for nobody can forgive my sins except You”
SUPPLCATION DURING THE TIME OF CALAMITY
Ibn Abbas narrated: Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) used to say at a time of distress, “None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Majestic, the Most Forbearing, None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Lord of the Tremendous Throne. None has the right to be worshipped but Allah, the Lord of the heavens and the Lord of the earth and the Lord of the Honourable Throne”
(AN APPEAL TO ALLAH TO GUIDE YOU ON THE RIGHT PATH AS REGARDS A CERTAIN MATTER)
If anyone of you intends to do something, he/she should offer two Rakaats prayer other than the obligatory prayer, and then say: “O Allah! I consult You as You are All-Knowing, and appeal to You to give me power as You are Omnipotent, and ask You for Your great favour, for You have power, but I don’t, and You have knowledge, but I don’t have, and You Know all hidden matters. O Allah, if You know that this matter is good for me in my religion, my livelihood, and for my life in the Hereafter (or said: For my present and future life), then do it for me; And if You know that this matter is evil (not good) for me in my religion, my livelihood, and for my life in the Hereafter (or said: For my present and future life), then keep it away from me and take me away from it, and choose what is good for me wherever it is, and please me with it – Then you should mention your matter (need).
In Conclusion, we would like to mention these two hadiths:
Anas (R) said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) says: “Allah the Almighty has said: O son of Adam, so long as you call upon Me and ask Me, I shall forgive you for what you have done, and I shall not mind. O son of Adam, were your sins to reach the clouds of the sky and were you then to ask forgiveness of Me, I would forgive you. O son of Adam, were you to come to Me with sins nearly as great as the earth and were you then to face Me, ascribing no partner to Me, I would bring you forgiveness nearly as great as it” I.e. as the earth, meaning that Allah will give forgiveness in like measure to a man’s sins. [At-Termithy].
Abdullah Ebn Mas’ud (R) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said: “No kind of anxiety nor sadness befalls anyone of you, then he says: O Allah, I am Your servant, the son of Your servant and Your bondmaid, my forelock (i.e. my destiny, my doom) is in Your hand, I am submissive to Your judgement, Your Judgement on me is fair and just. I ask You by every name that is Yours – by which you called Yourself – or You mentioned in Your book or taught to anyone of Your creatures or you appropriated it (kept it) in Your divination, to make Quran the tranquillity (peacefulness) of my heart, the light of my heart, the expellant of my sadness and the departure of my anxiety. (When he/she says these words) Surely Allah will expel his/her sadness and pains. And He will replace him/her happiness – It was said: O Messenger of Allah, do we have to learn them? Allah’s Messenger said: “Yes, everyone, who had heard them should learn them” [Ahmed].
“O Allah, I seek protection in the light of Your Countenance which illuminated all darkness, and which has controlled all affairs in this world as well as in the Hereafter. May it never be that I should incur Your wrath, or that You should be wrathful to me. To You alone belongs the right to blame and to chastise until Your pleasure is met, and there is neither resource nor strength except in You alone”
“O Allah! I beg of You the right guidance, safeguard against evils, chastity and freedom from want and neediness”
“I seek refuge with Allah against any severe trial and bad luck, and adverse judgement and rejoicing of the enemies.”
“O Allah! Cover up my defects and save me from fear. Protect me from my right and from my left, and from above, from before me and from behind me. I seek refuge with You lest I may be misled from beneath me.”
“O Allah! I seek from You consistency in my deeds and steadfastness on the right path. I seek from You strength to thank You for Your blessings and to serve You properly. I seek from You a rightly guided heart, a truthful tongue. I seek from You such blessings which You know. I seek refuge with You against my such evils which You know. I seek forgiveness for the sins, which You know. Verily, You know the unknown.”
“O Allah! Grant me Your fear and purity my soul as You are the best purifier. You Alone are the Protector and Guardian.”
“O Allah! I seek refuge with You against such knowledge that does not profit and against such heart which is not fearful and against such self which is never satiated and against such supplication which is not answered.”
“O Allah! Provide me with lawful livelihood, adequate to my needs instead of ill-gotten one, and graciously grant me freedom from needing anything from anyone besides Yourself.”
“O Allah! I seek from You Jannah (Paradise) and such deed or word, which may bring me closer to Jannah. I seek refuge from You from the Hellfire and such deed or word which may bring me closer to the Hellfire and I seek from You that which You have ordained for me and make it good for me.”
“O Allah! Set right for me my religion, which is the safeguard of my affairs. And set right for me the affairs of my world wherein is my living. And set right for me my hereafter on which depends my after-life. And make the life for me (a source) of abundance for every good and make my death a source of comfort for me protecting me against every evil”
