In the name of Allah The Beneficent the Merciful.

O He Who is continuously obedient, the One to ordain destiny the one to reach the heights of the actions, and whispers.
I have faith in Him, the one Who turned darkness into light by Your help and illuminated darkness, considered Your Power as one of Your signs, tested You by growing, lessening, swallowing, drowing, shining and at eclipse.
In all these You were obedient to Allah and strictly followed the commands. How pure is Allah, how much amazing laws He has passed for You. How the wise creation was created by Him and appointed You as a moon for every new month.
May Allah appoint You among the safe, and faithful and peaceful moons. That moon from which there is safety from deviation and protection from evils.
O Allah! Make me the most guided one among all those upon whom it shone. Make it the most pious for all those who see,
and blessings of Allah be on Mohammed and his progeny (ask for your wishes and then say) O the most merciful of all the mercifuls.
