O Allah, place in it of your extra favors. O Allah, I have purchased it and seek in it sustenance from You. O Allah, place sustenance in it.’ Thereafter repeat each of the above three times.”’

4. Ali ibn Ibrahim has narrated from his father from ibn abu ‘Umayr from Mu‘awiyah ibn ‘Ammar, who has said the following: “Abu ‘Abd Allah, ‘Alayhi al-Salam, has said, ‘When you decide to buy an animal, say this, “O Allah, if this is of great blessings, extra benefits and of a fortunate nature, I pray to You to make its purchasing easy for me. If it is otherwise, then turn me to what is better than this; You know and I do not know. You have power over all things but I do not have such power and You know the unseen.” You should say this three times’”
