 From every ease the most excellent of that ease, from every gift the most excellent of that gift, and from every share the most excellent of that share, so that there is none among Your creatures closer to You in station, or more favourable to You in rank or closer to You as an intermediary, or greater with You in honour. Or Mightier for You in right or in intercession than Muhammad, blessings of Allah on him and his family, in ease of life, happiness, permanence of blessing utmost degree of excellence, supreme nobility, hope of tranquillity, fulfilment of desires. Enjoyment of pleasures and joys which have no resemblance to the joys of this world…

salutations and blessings on him and his family, the good, the excellent and the mercy and blessings of Allah.

 O Allah, Lord of death and life, Lord of the heavens and the earth, Lord of all Being, our Lord and the Lord of our fathers, the ancients.

 You are the One, “the Independent” (112:2), You did not beget nor were you begotten and “there is no one like Him” (112:4).

You have authority over the kings through Your Power You have enslaved lords through Your Invincibility, held dominion over the mighty by Your Liberality, scattered the nobility by Your Might, demolished the mountains by Your Majesty, Chosen Pride and Grandeur for Yourself;

 Praise and eulogy are established in Your presence and the station of Glory and Honour are for You, Nothing reaches Your utmost degree and none is able to attain Your Power.

 You are the Protector of those who seek protection, the Refuge of those who seek refuge, the Support of the believers, the Path for the need of the seekers.

 O Allah, I ask You to turn away from me the temptation of desires. And I ask You to have mercy on me and make me firm before every misleading temptation. You are the depository of my complaints and my request. There is none like You and none attains to Your Power, You are Greater, more Sublime, More Generous, Mightier, More Exalted, More Majestic, Nobler, More Glorious and More Generous than all creation are able to attain than all of creation are able to describe…

 You are as You have described Yourself, O “ Master of the Day of Judgement” (1:4).

 O Allah, I ask You by every Name belonging to You by which You like to be called, and by every call with which anyone among the earlier and later of Your creatures have

Called on You and You have answered them through it, to forgive me all my sins, the past and the recent, the small and the big, the secret and the open, that which I know of and that of which I have no knowledge, and those of which You have counted against me and remembered, and I myself have forgotten...

 O Allah, forgive me and have mercy on me, and return to me (in forgiveness),  “… Surely You are the Oft-turning, the All-Compassionate” (2:128), O Most Merciful of the merciful..

Exalt his foundation and bless honour to his arguments and bless us with a drink with his cup, convey us to his cistern and include us in his party that we may not be of the disgraced, repentants, complainants, the innovators,

Grant him a life full of bliss, ever-lasting bounties perfect in merits, honoured leadership, tranquillity and pleasure in discarding the egotistic tendencies. All this honour granted by You to him should be matchless.

O Allah! Grant Mohammed a Means and bestow upon him, loftiness, excellence, eminence amongst the dominant people, love towards him amongst the chosen ones, highest rank amongst the near ones to You. And we bear witness for him that he preached to the people as Your Messenger,

And he commanded his people to only You. He himself remained obedient to You and forbade the people from disobedience to You, abstaining himself from it.

He loved your friend whom You desired to be love, He was an enemy to Your enemy to whom You wanted him to be an enemy. O Lord of the Worlds! May Your Blessings be on him and on his progeny, the leader (Imam) of the pious, the last of the Prophets, the best of the Messengers and Your Messenger.

O Allah! Bless Mohammed and his Progeny during the night when it enshrouds. O Allah! Bless Mohammed and his Progeny during the day when it shines, and bless him in the Hereafter and world and be pleased with him and increase this pleasure.

O Allah! Cool the eyes of our Prophet Mohammed (saww) through his followers of the Ummat, his wives, his progeny and his companions and through us, the members of the Holy House, all his people (Ummat), our family members and one love for whom You have made obligatory on us living or dead, cool his eyes.

O Allah! Carry us to his cistern and givens a drink, in his cup, include us in his group under his banner and disappoint us not his companionship. Verily You are over all things Powerful. Peace, Blessings, Mercy and Favours from Allah be on him and on his pure and virtuous Progeny.

O Allah! the Lord of death and life, Lord of Heavens and Earth, Lord of the Worlds, our Lord and Lord of our forefathers, You are One Needless, begot You not, nor You are begotten and there is none like to You, You are the Master of the sovereigns through Your power. You have made the masters Your slaves through Your might.

You are the Leader of the honoured people through Your generosity and You dispersed the nobles through Your might, and razed the mountains through Your greatness, and reserved the Pride and greatness exclusively for Your self. The praise and applause became exclusively Yours.

Glory and Honour are Your special attributes. None can reach the height of Your attributes and none can equal You in Your might. You are refuge for those seeking refuge with You.

You are the hiding place for those who want to hide, You are the place of confidence for the believers, and the way for fulfillment of needs for the seekers.

I beseech You to have mercy on me and to keep me firm in my beliefs in the times of every misguiding calamity. You are the place for me to lodge my complaints and a place of fulfillments of my wants.

There is none like the like of You and none to equal You in Your Might. You are greater, more glorious, more generous, mightier, loftier, more sublime, nobler more honoured and liberal than Your whole creation You have praised Your own Self, O the Master of the Day of Judgement!.

O Allah! I beseech in the name which is for You, and You desire to be invoked through that name, and I beseech You through every invocation which found acceptance with You,

through which You were invoked by any one of Your Creation from the people of the ancient epoch and the people of the last epoch, to forgive all my sins past and present, minor and major, committed secretly and openly , known to me or unknown, which You have reckoned and preserved them and I have personally forgotten.

O Allah! forgive me and Be Merciful to me and turn to me compassionately!

Verily You turn compassionately towards your bondsman, O the Most Merciful!
