Favour us Thy Mercy
To understand and recite Dalail al-Khayrat
On a Daily Basis throughout our lives,
For the sake of Our Beloved Prophet Muhammad,
Peace and blessings be upon him,
And make us so privileged
That He looks upon us with his holy lights,
And cleanses our Hearts
To make us suitable to be with Him
In Thy Glorious Divine Presence,
And look to Thy Holy Countenance
In the Company of our Beloved Holy Prophet
On the Day of Resurrection. Amin
