and Your grace, generosity, and kindness to us and Your mercy and favour toward us
—not because of any power that we possessed,
nor because of any devising on our part,
nor because of any strength that we had—
اللهمَّ فَحَبِّبْ إِلَيْنَا حُسْنَ تِلاوَتِهِ،
O Allah, grant us the passion for the charm of its recitation,
so also, O Allah, make it for us a shield against Your punishment, a bulwark against Your wrath, a safeguard against Your disobedience, a protection from Your displeasure, a guide to Your obedience, and, on the day we shall encounter You, a light whereby we may walk amid Your creatures, cross safely Your bridge [over hell],to be led by it into Your paradise.
a beneficial knowledge, by which we may thank You for Your blessings, a true veneration, with which we may glorify Your Names,for You have made it an argument against us, whereby You have cut off our excuses, and granted thereby a blessing, for which we can, never thank You enough!
O Allah! Make it for us a guardian that saves us from stumbles, a guide that directs us to righteous conduct, a guiding helper that saves us from deviation, a helper that gives us vigour in weariness, thus enabling us to realize our best aspirations.
O Allah! Make it for us an intercessor on the day of encounter, a conveyance for the day of soaring, a pleader on the day of judgement, a light on the day of darkness —a day when there will be neither earth nor heaven,
عَلَى مَنْ بِهَا اصْطَلَى وَبِحَرِّهَا تَلَظَّى،
a day when every worker will be rewarded for his endeavor.
O Allah! Make it for us a means of slaking our thirst on the day of thirst, a means of deliverance on the day of retribution from the scorching Fire unsparing to anyone who enters it and is inflamed by its heat.
O Allah! Grant us the stations of the martyrs, the life of the felicitous and the company of the prophets. Indeed You hear all supplications!

Supplication 2 after the recitation of the Holy Quran ,
Quoted from Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (Peace be upon him)
O’ Allah! I have recited that which You have decreed for me to recite from Your Book which You sent upon Your Prophet Muhammad, may Your prayers and peace be upon him, so then praise belongs to You, our Lord. And gratitude belongs to you because of the power and grace given me.
O’ Allah! Place me amongst those people who keep permitted that which You have made permissible, and who forbid that which You have made forbidden, and who avoid sins and believe in its (the Quran) equivocal, unequivocal, abrogating and abrogated verses, and appoint it the healing, bounty, refugee and asset for me.
O God! Make the Quran an instrument of love in my grave and an instrument of love when I am raised up, and raise me for the verses I recited up a stage from the highest of the high, Amin, O Lord of all the Worlds.
Allaahummar h’amnee bitaraki maa’a’s’eeka abadam maa abqaitanee farh’amni min takallufi maa yai’neenee warzuqnee h’usnal manz’ari feemaa yurz”eeka a’nnee walzim qalbee h’ifz’a kitaabika kamaa a’llamtanee warzuqnee wa atluwahu a’lan naj’willadhee yurz”eeka a’nnee.
O Allah bestow upon me Your mercy so that I am away from Your disobedience always, and bestow the grace that I am not involved in unbearable difficulties, and grant me the goodness for deeds which make You happy with me, and make the memorizing of Your book (the Holy Quran) obligatory on me as You have granted me it’s knowledge, and bestow Your grace so that I recite it in the way Your pleasure is gained.
O Allah illuminate my eyes, expand my breast, illuminate my heart and my tongue flows with the Holy Quran. Give me the strength so that I use my body for the Holy Quran, grant me Your help because there is no helper other than You and there is no god other than You
