In the Name of Thy Lord, the Creator, the Sovereign,
the All-Sufficing, the Most Exalted,
He Whose help is implored by all men.
Say: O my God! O Thou Who art the Maker of
the heavens and of the earth, O Lord of the Kingdom!
Thou well knowest the secrets of my heart,
while Thy Being is inscrutable to all save Thyself.
Thou seest whatsoever is of me, while no one else
can do this save Thee. Vouchsafe unto me,
through Thy grace, what will enable me to dispense
with all except Thee, and destine for me that
which will make me independent of everyone
else besides Thee. Grant that I may reap the benefit
of my life in this world and in the next. Open
to my face the portals of Thy grace, and graciously
confer upon me Thy tender mercy and bestowals.
O Thou Who art the Lord of grace abounding!
Let Thy celestial aid surround those who love
Thee, and bestow upon us the gifts and the bounties
Thou dost possess. Be Thou sufficient unto us
of all things, forgive our sins and have mercy upon
us. Thou art Our Lord and the Lord of all created
things. No one else do we invoke but Thee,
and naught do we beseech but Thy favors. Thou
art the Lord of bounty and grace, invincible in
Thy power and the most skillfull in Thy designs.
No God is there but Thee, the All-Possessing, the
Confer Thy blessings, O my Lord, upon the
Messengers, the holy ones and the righteous.
Verily, Thou art God, the Peerless, the All-Compelling.
