Allahumma ihdini fi-man hadayta wa-สฟafini fi-man สฟafayta wa-tawallani fi-man tawwalayta wa-barik li fi-ma aสฟtayta wa-qini sharra ma qadayta innaka taqdi wa-la yuqda สฟalayka innahu la yadhillu man walayta tabarakta wa-taสฟalayta

O Allah, guide me among those whom You have guided, grant me well-being among those whom You have granted well-being, befriend me among those to whom You have befriended, bless me in what You have bestowed, and save me from the evil of what You have decreed. Truly, You decree and none can decree against You; one whom You have befriended is not humiliated. Blessed are You (O Allah) and Exalted.
