In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful.
اَلْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ
alhamdu lillahi
All praise be to Allah;
وَٱلْحَمْدُ حَقُّهُ كَمَا يَسْتَحِقُّهُ
walhamdu haqquhu kama yastahiqquhu
and praise is His right, since He deserves it,
حَمْداً كَثيراً

abundant praise!
وَ أَعُوذُ بِهِ مِنْ شَرِّ نَفْسِي:
wa a`udhu bihi min sharri nafsi
I seek refuge in Him from the evil of my soul,
﴿إِنَّ ٱلنَّفْسَ لَأَمَّارَةٌ بِٱلسُّوءِ
inna annafsa la-ammaratun bissu'i
“For surely, the soul commands to evil
إِلاَّ مَا رَحِمَ رَبِّي﴾

wa a`udhu bihi min sharri ashshaytani
I seek refuge in Him from the evil of Satan
ٱلَّذِي يَزِيدُنِي ذَنْباً إِلَىٰ ذَنْبِي

who adds sins to my sin.
وَ أَحْتَرِزُ بِهِ مِنْ كُلِّ جَبَّارٍ فَاجِرٍ
wa ahtarizu bihi min kulli jabbarin fajirin
I seek protection with Him from every wicked tyrant,
وَسُلْطَانٍ جَائِرٍ
wa sultanin ja'irin
unjust sovereign,
وَعَدُوٍّ قَاهِرٍ
wa `aduwwin qahirin
and conquering enemy.
اَللَّهُمَّ ٱجْعَلْنِي مِنْ جُنْدِكَ
allahumma ij`alni min jundika
O Allah, place me among Your troops,
فَإِنَّ جُنْدَكَ هُمُ ٱلْغَالِبُونَ
fa-inna jundaka hum(u) alghalibuna
for Your troops—they are the victors,
وَٱجْعَلْنِي مِنْ حِزْبِكَ

O Allah, set right for me my religion,
فَإِنَّهُ عِصْمَةُ أَمْرِي

وَإِلَيْهَا مِنْ مُجاوَرَةِ ٱللِّئَامِ مَفَرِّي
wa ilayha min mujawarati alli'ami mafarri
and to it I flee from the neighborhood of the vile!
وَٱجْعَلِ ٱلْحَيَاةَ زِيَادَةً لِي فِي كُلِّ خَيْرٍ
waj`al alhayata ziyadatan li fi kulli khayrin
Make life an increase for me in every good

وَ أَصْحَابِهِ ٱلْمُنْتَجَبِينَ
wa ashabihi almuntajabina
and upon his Companions, the distinguished,
وَهَبْ لِي فِي ٱلثُّلاثَاءِ ثَلاثاً

وَلاَ عَدُوّاً إِلاَّ دَفَعْتَهُ
wa la `aduwwan illa dafa`tahu
and no enemy unless You repel him!
بِبِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ خَيْرِ ٱلأَسْمَاءِ
bibismillahi khayri al-asma'i
In the name of “In the name of Allah,” the best of the Names,
بِسْمِ ٱللَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلأَرْضِ وَٱلسَّمَاءِ
bismillahi rabbi al-ardi wal-ssama'i
In the name of Allah, the Lord of the earth and the heaven,

astadfi`u kulla makruhin awwaluhu sakhatuhu
I seek to repulse every hateful thing, the first of which is His anger,
وَ أَسْتَجْلِبُ كُلَّ مَحْبُوبٍ أَوَّلُهُ رِضَاهُ
wa astajlibu kulla mahbubin awwaluhu ridahu
and I seek to attract every lovable thing, the first of which is His good pleasure!
فَٱخْتِمْ لِي مِنْكَ بِٱلْغُفْرَانِ
fakhtim li minka bilghufrani
So, seal me with forgiveness from You,
يَا وَلِيَّ ٱلْإِحْسَانِ
ya waliyya al-ihsani
O Patron of beneficence!
