Favourite Supplication :
O Lord, Thou art my shelter if I grow sad, and Thou art my resource if I am in need and unto Thee I cry for help, when deeply afflicted, and with Thee is recompense for what is lost, and reformation for what is corrupted, and alteration for what Thou disapproved:
Therefore, favour me with security before calamity, and bounty before begging for it and right direction before error and spare me from bearing me peace on the day of resurrection and favour me with handsome guidance.
O Lord, bless Muhammad and his family and ward off evil from me with Thy grace, and nourish me with Thy blessing, and reform me with Thy graciousness and cure me with Thy goodness and hide me in the shelter of Thy mercy and clothe me with Thy approbation, and help me, when matters grow difficult about me, to choose the most righteous of them, and when actions become dubious, to select the purest of them, and when the creeds conflict, to adopt the most praiseworthy of them.
O Lord, bless Muhammad and his family and crown me with sufficiency and adorn me with the grace of Thy love and grant me true guidance and do not try me with prosperity and confer on me the beauty of comfort and do not make my life a succession of trials, and do not reject my prayer with repulsion; for, I do not recognise any as Thy rival, and I do not call upon any as Thy equal.
O Lord, bless Muhammad and his family and restrain me from extravagance and preserve my subsistence from waste and increase my possessions by giving blessing therein and let me walk along the path of benevolence; in whatever I spend my wealth.
