I ask from You the best in Your knowledge,
so bless Muhammad and his Household
and decree for me the best!
Inspire us with knowledge to choose the best
and make that a means to
being pleased with what You have decreed for us
and submitting to what You have decided!
Banish from us the doubt of misgiving
and confirm us with the certainty of the sincere!
Visit us not with incapacity
to know what You have chosen, lest we
despise Your measuring out,
dislike the place of Your good pleasure,
and incline toward that which is
further from good outcome
and nearer to the opposite of well-being!
Make us love what we dislike
in Your decree
and make easy for us what we find difficult
in Your decision!
Inspire us to yield
to that which You bring upon us by Your will,
love the delay of what You have hastened
and the hastening of what You have delayed,
dislike what You love,
and choose what You dislike!
Seal us with that which is most praised in outcome
and most generous in issue!
Surely You give generous gain,
bestow the immense,
do what You will,
and You are powerful over everything.
