اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِحَقِّ هٰذِهِ الطِّينَةِ وَ بِحَقِّ الْمَلَكِ الَّذِيْ أَخَذَهَا وَ بِحَقِّ النَّبِيِّ الَّذِيْ قَبَضَهَا وَ بِحَقِّ الْوَصِيِّ الَّذِيْ حَلَّ فِيْهَا صَلِّ عَلٰى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ أَهْلِ بَيْتِهٖ وَ اجْعَلْ فِيْهَا شِفَآءً مِنْ كُلِّ دَآءٍ وَ أَمَاناً مِنْ كُلِّ خَوْفٍ

allaahumma innee as-aloka be-haqqe haazehit teenate wa be-haqqil malakil lazee akhazahaa wa be-haqqin nabiyyil lazee qabazahaa wa be-haqqil wasiyyil lazee halla feehaa salle a’laa mohammadin wa ahle baytehi waj-a’l feehaa shefaaa-an min kulle daaa-in wa amaanan min kulle khawfin.

Translation:

O Allah I bind Thee by thee by this clay and of that angel who had picked up this clay and of the Prophet through whom this clay was sent and of that vicegerent who lies buried under this clay and ask Thee to shower Thy blessing on Mohammad (s.a.w.a.) and Ahle Bait (a.s.) and make this clay a cure for all my diseases and a guardian against all fears.

اَللّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ بِحَقِّ الْمَلَكِ الَّذِي قَبَضَهَا وَ أَسْأَلُكَ بِحَقِّ النَّبِيِّ الَّذِيْ خَزَنَهَا وَ أَسْأَلُكَ بِحَقِّ الْوَصِيِّ الَّذِيْ حَلَّ فِيْهَا أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ عَلٰى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ أَنْ تَجْعَلَهَا لِيْ شِفَاءً مِنْ كُلِّ دَاءٍ وَ أَمَاناً مِنْ كُلِّ خَوْفٍ وَ حِفْظاً مِنْ كُلِّ سُوْ ءٍ

Transliteration:

allaahumma innee as-aloka be-haqqil malakil lazee qabazahaa wa as-aloka be-haqqin nabiyyil lazee khazanahaa wa as-aloka be-haqqil wasiyyil lazee halla feehaa an tosalleya a’laa mohammadin wa aale mohammadin wa an taj-a’lahaa lee shefaaa-an min kulle daaa-in wa amaanan min kulle khawfin wa hifzan min kulle sooo-in.

Translation:

O Allah I bind Thee by that angel who had lifted a handful clay; by the prophet who had preserved it in the bottle, by the vice-regent who lies buried under it and pray Thee to shower thy blessing on Mohammed and Aale Mohammad and make this pure clay a cure for all diseases, a shield against all fears, and a safeguard against all curses.

Translation:

Verily in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alteration of the night and the day, there are signs for men who possess wisdom. Those who remember Allah standing, and sitting and reclining on their sided and think (Seriously) in the creation of the heaven and the earth saying ‘O Our Lord! Thou hast not created (all) this in vain! Glory be to Thee! Save us then from the torment of the (Hell) fire.’ O Our Lord! Whomsoever Thou causeth to enter the (Hell) fire surely thou hast put him to disgrace; there is not, for the unjust, any of the helpers. O Our Lord! We Have indeed heard the voice of a Crier (Messenger) calling (us) unto faith, saying, “Believe ye in your Lord!” Therefore “Forgive us then our sins and remove away from us our evil deeds and cause us to die with the virtuous ones”. O Our Lord! And give us what Thou didst promise us through Thy prophet, and disgrace us not on the Day of Resurrection; Verily, Thou breakest not Thy Promise”.[1]

When God has surrounded them from all sides then where links the danger. O Allah do protect me from the danger who intend harming me, cover me with avail as is Thy sacred veil which does not let the mischief of bad and mad people come near Thee or be hurt by the swords, the iron and all those which ordinarily people are afraid of and keep away from and all the difficulties and mischief of all these things which are well known to Thee or be hurt by the swords, the iron and all those which ordinarily people are afraid and keep away from, and all the difficulties and the mischief of all those things which are well known to thee and on whom thou hast complete authority. No doubt Thy power encompasses everything. Shower Thy blessing on Thy prophet and his dear and near ones and a greeting which they have the right of.

Translation:

Alif Laam Mim. This is the Book, there is no doubt in it, (being the word of God) (it is) a guidance for the pious. (Ones). Who believe in the unseen, and establish the prayers and of what We have provided them with. They give (in the way of their Lord). And who believe in that which hath been sent down unto thee (O Our Prophet Mohammad) and that which hath been sent down (unto the other Prophets) before thee, and of the hereafter they are sure.[11]

Allah is He besides Whom there is no god, the Everliving, the Self-subsisting by Whom all subsist; slumber does not overtake Him nor sleep; whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is His; who is he that can intercede with Him but by His permission? He knows what is before them and what is behind them, and they cannot comprehend anything out of His knowledge except what He pleases. His knowledge extends over the heavens and the earth, and the preservation of them both tires Him not, and He is the Most High, the Great. There is no compulsion in religion; truly the right way has become clearly distinct from error; therefore, whoever disbelieves in the Shaitan and believes in Allah he indeed has laid hold on the firmest handle, which shall not break off, and Allah is Hearing, Knowing. Allah is the guardian of those who believe. He brings them out of the darkness into the light; and (as to) those who disbelieve, their guardians are Shaitans who take them out of the light into the darkness; they are the inmates of the fire, in it they shall abide.[12]

Whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth is Allah’s; and whether you manifest what is in your minds or hide it, Allah will call you to account according to it; then He will forgive whom He pleases and chastise whom He pleases, and Allah has power over all things. The apostle believes in what has been revealed to him from his Lord and (so do) the believers; they all believe in Allah and His angels and His books and His apostles; We make no difference between any of His apostles; and they say: We hear and obey, our Lord! Thy forgiveness (do we crave), and to Thee is the eventual course. Allah does not impose upon any soul a duty but to the extent of its ability; for it is (the benefit of) what it has earned and upon it (the evil of) what it has wrought: Our Lord! Do not punish us if we forget or make a mistake; Our Lord! do not lay on us a burden as Thou didst lay on those before us; Our Lord do not impose upon us that which we have not the strength to bear; and pardon us and grant us protection and have mercy on us, Thou art our Patron, so help us against the unbelieving people.[13]
