In the Name of Allāh, The Beneficent, The Merciful.

He begets not,
nor is He begotten.
And there is none like Him. (112:1-4)

(To be recited three times)

In the Name of Allāh, The Beneficent, The Merciful.
Say! (O Prophet Muhammad). I take refuge with the Lord of the day-break;
from the evil of what He has created;
from the evil of the darkness when it gathers;
from the evil of the women who blow on knots (practicing witchcraft);
and from the evil of the envious when he envies. (113:1-5)

In the Name of Allāh, The Beneficent, The Merciful.
Say! (O Prophet Muhammad). I take refuge with The Lord of mankind,

The God of mankind;
from the evil of the (devilish) whisperings of one who slinks away;
who whispers in the breasts of mankind,
from among the jinn and mankind. (114:1-6)

(To be recited once)

Did you then think that We created you in vain,
and that you would not be returned to Us?
But Exalted is Allāh, the True King,
there is no god but He, Lord of the Honoured Throne.
And whosoever calls upon any other god besides Allāh
has no authority for this,
and his reckoning is with his Lord;
undoubtedly, the non-believers will not be successful.
And say (O Prophet Muhammad)! My Lord! Forgive and have mercy
and You are the Best of those who show mercy. (23:115-118)

So glorify Allāh
when you reach the time of the evening and the time of the morning.

And He brings forth the dead from the living,
and He gives life to the earth after its death,
and in like manner you shall be brought forth (from the dead). (30:17-19)

The Knower of the invisible and the visible;
He is The Beneficent, The Merciful.

He is Allāh, there is no god but He,
The King, The Most Holy, The Bestower of Peace, The Granter of Security,
The Guardian, The Mighty, The Compeller, The Supreme in Greatness;
Transcendent is Allāh beyond what they ascribe as partner (with Him).

to Him belong the Most Beautiful Names;
all that is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Him,
and He is The Mighty, The Wise. (59:21-24)
