Allaahumma innii as’aluka khayral-mas’ala(ti), wa khayrad-du’aa'(i), wa khayran-najaah(i), wa khayral-‘amal(i), wa khayrath-thawaab(i), wa khayral-hayaa(ti), wa khayral-mamaat(i), wa thabbitnii, wa thaqqil mawaaziinii, wa haqqiq iimaanii, war-fa’ darajaatii, wa taqabbal salaatii, wagh-fir khatii’atii, wa as’alukad-darajaatil-‘ulaa minal-Jannat(i), Aamiin(a). Allaahumma innii as’aluka fawaatihal-khayri wa khawaatimah(uu), wa jawaami’ah(uu), wa awwalahuu wa aakhirah(uu), wa zaahirahuu wa baatinah(uu). Allaahumma innii as’aluka khayra maa aatii, wa khayra maa af’al(u), wa khayra maa a’mal(u), wa khayra maa batan(a), wa khayra maa zahar. [Um Salamah. Kanz al-‘Ummal #3820; Ibid. Mustadrak Hakim #111/1911)

O Allah, I beg You for the best of petitions and invocations, through success, best deeds, best recompense, best life, and best death. Grant me firmness. Make my scales heavy and my faith genuine. Elevate my ranks, accept my salaat, and forgive my sins. I solicit of You high ranks in Paradise. Amin. O Allah, I beg You for the good: its beginnings and endings, its most comprehensive forms, its first and its last, and its outward and inward manifestations. O Allah, I beg You for the good of my accomplishments, my deeds, and my actions. The good of that which is hidden and that which is exposed.
