Praise belongs to Allah,Who created the night and the day
through His strength,
set them apartthrough His power,
and appointed for eacha determined limitand an extended period.
He makes each of the two enter into its companion,and makes its companion enter into it,as an ordainment from Him for His servantsin that through which He feeds themand with which He makes them grow.
He created for them the night,that they might rest in it, (10:67),from tiring movements and wearisome exertions,and He made it a garment for them
that they might be clothed in its ease and its sleep,that it might be for them refreshment and strength,that they might reach therein pleasure and passion.
He created for them the daytime, giving sight that they might seek within it His bounty, (17:12),find the means to His provision,and roam freely in His earth,searching for that through whichthey could attain the immediate in their life, in this worldand achieve the deferred in their life to come.
Through all of this, He sets right their situation,tries their records, and watches their state inthe times for obeying Him,the abode of His duties,and the positions of His ordinances,that He may repay those who do evil with what they have doneand repay those who do good with goodness. (53:31).
O Allah,to Thee belongs praise,for the sky Thou hast split into dawn for us, giving us to enjoy thereby the brightness of daytime,showing us sought-after nourishments,and protecting us from the striking of blights.
In the morning, we and all things rise for Thee,the heaven and the earthand what Thou hast scattered in each,the still and the moving,the resident and the journeying,what towers up in the air and what hides under the ground.
We rise in the morning in Thy grasp:Thy kingdom and authority contain usand Thy will embraces us.We move about by Thy commandand turn this way and that through Thy desire.
We own nothing of the affair,
except what Thou hast decreed;and nothing of the good,
except what Thou hast given.
This is a fresh, new day,over us a ready witness.If we do good, it will take leave from us with praise,and if we do evil, it will part from us in blame.
O Allah,bless Muhammad and his Household,provide us with the day's good companionshipand preserve us against parting from it badlyby doing a misdeedor committing a sin, whether small or great!
Make our good deeds within it plentiful,empty us therein of evil deeds,and fill what lies between its two sides for uswith praise and gratitude,
rewards and providence,bounty and beneficence!
O Allah,ease our burden on the Noble Writers, fill our pages for us with our good deeds,and degrade us not, before them, with our evil works!
O Allah,appoint for us in each of the day's hoursa share from Thy servants,a portion of giving thanks to Thee,and a truthful witness among Thy angels!
O Allah,bless Muhammad and his Household,and safeguard us from before us and behind us,from our right hands and our left hands,and from all our directions, a safeguarding that will preserve us from disobeying Thee,guide us to obeying Thee,and being employed for Thy love!
O Allah,bless Muhammad and his Household,and give us success in this day of ours,this night of ours,and in all our days,to employ the good,stay away from the evil,give thanks for favors,follow the norms of the Sunnah,avoid innovations,enjoin good behavior,forbid the disapproved,defend Islam,diminish falsehood and abase it,help the truth and exalt it,guide the misguided,
assist the weak,and reach out to the troubled!
O Allah,bless Muhammad and his Household,and make thisthe most fortunate day we have known,the most excellent companion we have accompanied,and the best time in which we have lingered!
Make us amongthe most satisfied of all Thy creatureswhom night and day have passed by;the most thankful of themfor the favors Thou hast done;the firmest of themin the laws Thou hast set down in the Shariah;and the most unyielding of themtoward the prohibited actsagainst which Thou hast cautioned!
O Allah,I call Thee to witnessand Thou art sufficient witnessand I call Thy heaven and Thy earth to witnessand Thy angels and Thy other creatures who inhabit themin this day of mine,in this hour of mine,in this night of mine,and this resting place of mine,that I bear witnessthat Thou art Allah,other than Whom there is no god,Upholding justice,Equitable in judgment,Clement to the servants, (02:207), Master of the kingdom, (03:26),Compassionate to the creatures,
and that Muhammad is Thy servant and Thy Messenger,Thou has chosen from among Thy creatures.Thou didst charge him with Thy messageand he delivered it;Thou didst command him to counsel his communityand he counseled it.
O Allah,so bless Muhammad and his Householdmore than Thou hast blessed any of Thy creatures!Give him for our sake the best Thou hast given any of Thy servants,and repay him on our behalf better and more generouslythan Thou hast repaid any of Thy prophetson behalf of his community!
Thou art All-kind with immensity,the Forgiver of the great,and Thou art more mercifulthan every possessor of mercy!So bless Muhammad and his Household,the good, the pure, the chosen, the most distinguished!
