Through You, 

Through You,

Through You I ask You by the Names whereby You have named Yourself, or which You have sent down in any of Your revealed Books, or Which You have kept hidden in Your knowledge of the unknown; and (I ask You) in the name of the honored and exalted positions of Your Throne, and in the name of the utmost extent of Your Mercy as expressed in Your Book (the Quran) and in the name of that which “If all the trees on earth were to become pens and all the seven seas ink, the Words of Allah could not be fully written down.”

“indeed Allah is the Honored, the Wise”; 

And I ask You by all of Your Beautiful Names which You have praised in Your Book, saying,”Unto Allah belong the beautiful names — so call ye Him by Them;” 

And You have said “Call unto Me and I shall answer you;” 

And You has said, “And when My servants ask something of Me, lo, I am near, and I answer the call of the caller when he calls upon Me, so respond to Me and believe in Me, that you may be made perfect” 

And You have said, “O My servants who have wronged yourselves, despair not of the Mercy of Allah; indeed Allah forgive all the sins; indeed He is the Forgiving, the Merciful.”

Therefore I pray unto You, My God, and I ask You, My Cherisher and Sustainer, and I hope from You, my Chief, and I crave Your acceptance of my prayer, O my Protector, even as You have promised me, and I call upon You even as You have commanded me —

So, do unto me what pleases You to do, O Generous One! 

(Here the Devotee should pray for the fulfillment of his valid desires.) 

And all Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds, and the blessings of Allah be upon Muhammad and all His Holy Descendants.
