Text and Translation

In the Name of Allah, the All-beneficent, the All-merciful. بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
O God, inspire us to obey You, اَللَّهُمَّ أَلْهِمْنا طاعَتَكَ،
turn us aside from disobeying You, وَجَنّـِبْنا مَعْصِيَتَكَ،
make it easy for us to reach the seeking of Your good pleasure which we wish, وَيَسّـِرْ لَنا بُلُوغَ ما نَتَمَنَّىٰ مِنِ ابْتِغاءِ رِضْوانِكَ،
set us down in the midst of Your Gardens, وَأَحْلِلْنا بُحْبُوحَةَ جِنانِكَ،
