Gratitude is only for God, the Lord of the worlds; the Most Gracious, the Ever Merciful; Master of the Day of Judgment. [Lord!] It is only You whom we worship and it is only Your help that we seek.

Indeed, we have heard a caller calling to faith: “Believe in your Lord,” and we believed. Our Lord! Forgive us our sins and take away from us our evil deeds, and make us die with your loyal people.
