 O He Whose Names are sanctified, “His are the creation and the command, Blessed be Allah, the Lord of the worlds” (7:54), majestic is His Praise, His Mercy encompasses everything, and it is manifest and hidden through His Generosity, “.. and He is the Most merciful of the merciful” (12:64)… 

O Allah, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, and forgive us what is past of our sins, and protect us (from sin) in what remains of our lives.  

O Allah, make the best of our actions those that come at the end, and the best of our days the day of meeting You.

 O Allah, bestow on us in this hour, in all that we encounter in this day of ours, forgiveness, happiness, pardon, success and salvation from the Fire.  

O Allah, expand for us our provision, bless us in our lives, guard us from evil and harm and grant us release (from distress) and ease. 

“Surely, You are the hearer of the prayer” (3:38) and are All-gracious to what You will (ref 12:100)
