For the sake of his position before You, grant me honor in this and the next world and include me among those near You. Make my Salah (prayer) accepted through him, my sins forgiven and my prayer and wishes granted. You are forgiving and merciful.’””

I performed my obligatory Salah (prayer). I want to move in Your land as You have commanded me. Now I ask You to help me to act in Your obedience, avoid making You angry with me and suffice me in matters of my sustenance through Your mercy.”””
