‘O Allah benefit me with that which You have taught me and teach me that which will benefit me and increase me in knowledge’

Arabic text

اللَّهُمَّ انْفَعْنِي بِمَا عَلَّمْتَنِي وَعَلِّمْنِي مَا يَنْفَعُنِي وَزِدْنِي عِلْمًا



Allahumman fa’ni bima ‘allamtani wa ‘allimni ma yanfa’uni wa zidni ‘ilma



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
