In the name of  Allah the All Merciful the
All Compassionate

O Allah! From many things I ask You certain things although I have great desires  from You and You are free from it and those wants are difficult for me and easy for You. My Lord forgive my sins and overlook my short comings and my big sins which are done intentionally and unintentionally. My greed which is the result of my seeking those things which I am not worthy of but You by Your Grace and Mercy bestowed it on me which I saw by Your Powers and has reached me as an acceptance of my prayers. Now I call You fearlessly and I ask You being intimate with You, neither there is fear nor terror and I have presented myself in Your presence. I am proud of You now if You delay in accepting my prayers then it is not due to Your ignorance although there was some goodness for me in that delay as You are aware of every result. Sufficient is for me that I have not found a more reliable lord than You. My Lord You call me and I turn my face away from You. You express Your love for me and I don't respond likewise to You. You expect sincerity from me where as I don't think of it. It seems that I have obliged You, but still You are being generous and merciful towards me and never slow in bestowing favours on me then have mercy on my errors bestow mercy on (here take Your name with Your fathers name e.g. Ali son of Abu Talib) because You are generous and noble.
