اَللَّهُمَّ إنا نَسْتَعِينُكَ وَنَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَنُؤْمِنُ بِكَ وَنَتَوَكَّلُ عَلَيْكَ وَنُثْنِئْ عَلَيْكَ الخَيْرَ وَنَشْكُرُكَ وَلَا نَكْفُرُكَ وَنَخْلَعُ وَنَتْرُكُ مَنْ ئَّفْجُرُكَ اَللَّهُمَّ إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَلَكَ نُصَلِّئ وَنَسْجُدُ وَإِلَيْكَ نَسْعأئ وَنَحْفِدُ وَنَرْجُو رَحْمَتَكَ وَنَخْشآئ عَذَابَكَ إِنَّ عَذَابَكَ بِالكُفَّارِ مُلْحَقٌ

Translation: “O Allah, we seek Your help, ask for Your forgiveness, believe in You, trust in You, and praise You for all the good. We are grateful to You and we do not disbelieve in You. We cast off and forsake those who disobey You. O Allah, You alone we worship, and to You alone we pray and prostrate, and with Your help we compete and strive. We hope for Your mercy and fear Your punishment, for indeed Your punishment will certainly reach the disbelievers.”
