bless Muhammad and his Household,
guide us to the repentance that Thou lovest
and make us leave the persistence that Thou hatest!
when we halt before two shortages,
in religion or in this world,
let the shortage fall upon that which ceases to exist more quickly and
repentance upon that which lasts the longer!
When we set out after two concerns, one of which makes Thee pleased with us and the other of which displeases Thee, incline us towards that which makes Thee pleased and weaken our strength in that which displeases Thee!
Leave not our souls alone to choose in that, for they choose falsehood except inasmuch as Thou givest success, and they command to evil except inasmuch as Thou hast mercy!
Thou created us from frailty,
built us up from feebleness,
and began us from a mean water (77:20);
we have no force except through Thy strength and no strength except through Thy help.
Grant us Thy success, guide us to Thy right way, blind our hearts from anything opposing Thy love, and set not in any of us an ability to disobey Thee!
O Allah,bless Muhammad and his Household, and assign
the whisperings of our hearts,
the movements of our organs,
the glances of our eyes,
and the speeches of our tongues, to that which makes incumbent Thy reward, lest a good deed slip by us, through which we might deserve Thy repayment, or an evil deed remain with us, by which we might merit Thy punishment!
