In the name of Allah the Beneficent the Merciful.

O Allah! So and so son of son and so does not have the strength to bear the calamities nor to endure poverty. O Allah send blessing on Mohammad and his progeny and do not cut down my sustenance and do not curtain Your obligations on him. Do not make him away from Your grace, do not make him unsuccessful from Your uncountable bounties.
Do not entrust him upon Your creatures nor leave him upon himself because he will not be able to take care of himself on the contrary You Yourself ward off the troubles which are encircling him. You only guide him, be attentive on all his transactions, because if You entrust him upon Your creatures, they would not be able to benefit him, and if You leave him with his friends then they will not give him his due and if they ever give it will be very little and less and if they will not give it will be nothing at all. And if they behave miserly then I will be affected.
O Allah! Make so and so son of so and so self-sufficient by Your grace and do not neglect him because he is restless in Your presence, and he is fully dependent on the things which is in Your power, and are You unaware? You are fully aware and knowing it.
And whoever relies on Allah then it is sufficient for him without any doubt Allah will fulfill his desires. Allah has appointed a fix turn for everyone. Surely every trouble is accompanied by weakness, and whoever fears Allah, then Allah makes a way for him and he gets from a place when he has never thought it.
