In the Name of Allah, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful!

8 Oct

 

Glory be to Allah, Lord of the universe

The Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful

Master of the Day of Repayment

It is You whom we worship, and it is You whom we call on for help

Guide us on the straight path

The path of those whom You have blessed

Not those who have earned Your wrath, and nor those who lost the path.

Amen
