يَا مَوْلاَيَ وَأَدْخِلْنِي فِي كُلِّ خَيْرٍ أَدْخَلْتَ فِيهِ مُحَمَّداً وَآلَ مُحَمَّدٍ
ya mawlaya wa adkhilni fi kulli khayrin adkhalta fihi muhammadan wa ala muhammadin
O my Master, (please do) include me with every good item with which You have included Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad

وَأَخْرِجْنِي مِنْ كُلِّ سُوءٍ أَخْرَجْتَ مِنْهُ مُحَمَّداً وَآلَ مُحَمَّدٍ
wa akhrijni min kulli su'in akhrajta minhu muhammadan wa ala muhammadin
and take me out of any evil from which You have taken out Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,

صَلَوَاتُكَ عَلَيْهِ وَعَلَيْهِمْ
salawatuka `alayhi wa `alayhim
Your blessings be upon him and them.

وَٱلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْهِ وَعَلَيْهِمْ وَرَحْمَةُ ٱللَّهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ
wa alssalamu `alayhi wa `alayhim wa rahmatu allahi wa barakatuhu
Peace, Allah’s mercy, and blessings be upon him and them.

You may then repeat the following three times:


اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَدْعُوكَ كَمَا أَمَرْتَنِي
allahumma inni ad`uka kama amartani
O Allah, I am praying You as You have ordered me to do;

فَٱسْتَجِبْ لِي كَمَا وَعَدْتَنِي
fastajib li kama wa`adtani
so, please respond to me as You have promised.


You may then continue as follows:


اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ قَلِيلاً مِنْ كَثِيرٍ
allahumma inni as'aluka qalilan min kathirin
O Allah, I ask You for a little from the very much

مَعَ حَاجَةٍ بِي إِلَيْهِ عَظِيمَةٍ
ma`a hajatin bi ilayhi `azimatin
in the midst of my many needs for which I entirely depend on You,

وَغِنَاكَ عَنْهُ قَدِيمٌ
wa ghinaka `anhu qadimun
and You, since eternity, are able to do without them,

وَهُوَ عِنْدِي كَثِيرٌ
wa huwa `indi kathirun
but for me, it is titanic,

وَهُوَ عَلَيْكَ سَهْلٌ يَسِيرٌ
wa huwa `alayka sahlun yasirun
and for You, it is very easy and simple.

فَٱمْنُنْ عَلَيَّ بِهِ إِنَّكَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
famnun `alayya bihi innaka `ala kulli shay'in qadirun
So, (please do) bestow upon me with them, for You have power over all things.

آمِينَ رَبَّ ٱلْعَالَمِينَ
amina rabba al`alamin
Respond to me, O Lord of the worlds!.
