وَتَرْزُقَنِي مِنَ الرّزْقِ أَطْيَبَهُ وَأَوْسَعَهُ وَلا تَحْرِمَنِي،

to grant me from the nicest and most extensive sustenance and not to deprive me (of Your sustenance).

يَارَبّ وَاقْضِ عَنّي دَيْنِي،

O my Lord: (please do) help me settle my debts;

وَضَعْ عَنّي وِزْرِي،

and relieve me of my burdens;

وَلا تُحَمّلْنِي مَا لا طَاقَةَ لِي بِهِ،

and do not impose on me that which I have not the strength to bear.

يَا مَوْلايَ وَأَدْخِلْنِي فِي كُلّ خَيْرٍ أَدْخَلْتَ فِيهِ مُحَمّداً وَآلَ مُحَمّدٍ،

O my Master: and (please do) include me with every good item that You have chosen from Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad

وَأَخْرِجْنِي مِنْ كُلّ سُوءٍ أَخْرَجْتَ مِنْهُ مُحَمّداً وَآلَ مُحَمّدٍ صَلَوَاتُكَ عَلَيْهِ وَعَلَيْهِمْ،

and take me out of any evil from which You have saved Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad—Your blessings be upon him and them.

وَالسّلامُ عَلَيْهِ وَعَلَيْهِمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللّهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ.

Peace, Allah’s mercy, and blessings be upon him and them.

You may then repeat the following three times:

O Allah: I am praying You as You have ordered me to do; so, please respond to me as You have promised.

اللّهُمّ إنّي أَدْعُوكَ كَمَا أَمَرْتَنِي فَاسْتَجِبْ لِي كَمَا وَعَدْتَنِي.

You may then continue as follows:

اللّهُمّ إنّي أَسْأَلُكَ قَلِيلاً مِنْ كَثِيرٍ


O Allah, I ask You for a little from the very much,

مَعَ حَاجَةٍ بِي إلَيْهِ عَظِيمَةٍ،

in the midst of my many needs for which I entirely depend on You,

وَغِنَاكَ عَنْهُ قَدِيمٌ،

and You, since eternity, are able to do without them,

وَهُوَ عِنْدِي كَثِيرٌ،

but for me it is titanic

وَهُوَ عَلَيْكَ سَهْلٌ يَسِيرٌ،

and for You it is very easy and simple.

فَامْنُنْ عَلَيّ بِهِ إنّكَ عَلَى كُلّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ،

So, (please do) bestow upon me with them, for You have power over all things.

آمِينَ رَبّ العَالَمِينَ.

Respond to me, O the Lord of the worlds.
