Oh Allah! extend the span of my life and increase my subsistence and spread Thy mercy on me; and, if in Thy Knowledge, there is anything unhappy for me in the guarded tablets change it into happiness, for surely Thou changeth what Thou pleaseth and inscribe what Thou pleaseth; and the guarded Tablet belongs Thee alone”.

إِنَّكَ ذُو فَضْلٍ عَظيم
innaka dhu fadlin `azimin
You are surely the Lord of great favor.
