Recite:

اللَّهُمَّ إِنَّا نَسْأَلُكَ مِنْ خَيْرِ مَا سَأَلَكَ مِنْهُ نَبِيُّكَ مُحَمَّدٌ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ، وَنَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا اسْتَعَاذَ مِنْهُ نَبِيُّكَ مُحَمَّدٌ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، وَأَنْتَ المُسْتَعَانُ، وَعَلَيْكَ البَلَاغُ، وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ

Allahumma inna nas-aluka min khayri ma sa-alaka minhu Nabiyyuka Muhammadun (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam), wa na’udhu bika min sharri mas ta’adhaka minhu Nabiyyuka Muhammadun (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam). Wa Antal Musta’anu wa ‘alaykal balaghu wa la hawla wala quwwata illa billah.

Translation:

O Allah, we ask You the good which Your Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) asked of You, and we seek refuge in You from the evil where from Your Nabi Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) sought refuge. And You are the One from Whom help is sought and the responsibility to communicate [the truth] is Yours and there is no power or strength except with Allah.

 

 

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
