Du’aa for forgiveness and protection from the Fire

أَسْألُكَ بِنُوْرِ وَجْهِكَ الَّذِيْ أَشْرَ قَتْ لَهُ السَّمٰوٰتُ وَ الأّرْضُ وَبِكُلِّ حَقٍّ هُوَ لَكَ وَبِحَقِّ السَّائِلِيْنَ عَلَيْكَ أَنْ تُقِيْلَنِيْ وَأَنْ تُجِيْرَنِيْ مِنَ النَّارِ بِقُدْرَتِكَ ـ

As’aluka binuuri Wajhikal-ladhii ashraqat lahus-samaawaatu wal’ardu wa bikulli haqqin huwa laka wa bihaqqis-saa’iliina ‘alayka an tuqiilanii wa an tujiiranii minan-naari biqudratik. (Abu Umamah al-Bahili. Mu’jam al-Kabir (Tabarani) #265/8)

In the name of the light of Your Countenance that lights the heavens and the earth and in the name of every right of Yours and (in the name of) the right on You that You have granted to the beggars, I beseech You to forgive me and protect me from the Fire through Your Power.

right of beggars: We do not have any built-in, autonomous right over Allah Ta’aala. No one can demand anything from Allah Ta’aala or force Him to grant anything. However, Allah Ta’aala has through His Own kindness and compassion, granted us the privilege of making pleas to Him and He accepts them when they are made sincerely and obediently. It is this that has been referred to here.
