O my Allah there is no obstacle when thou gives, and there is no access to anything when thou puts a stop; there is no profit in exerting ones self in a matter when thou “looks the other way” & recite the following:

After Salaam recite the following supplication:

O my Allah! O He who puts the proud tyrants to shame! O He who glorifies the faithful! Thou was my choice at once when I came across many schools of thought (religions), Thou brought me into existence, a favor to me, though Thou was able to dispense with my creation, not needing me at all.

If not for Thy mercy I am of those who perish. Thou makes available reliable support to have an upper hand over my adversaries. If not for Thy help I am of those who shatter and break into pieces.

O He who sends forth mercy from its permanent self-generating origin, and brings out blessing from its depository.

O He who has reserved for Himself that which is the highest, and the loftiest, so His intimate friends, on account of His might, vie in honor and glory. O He before whom bend low the rulers, their necks burdened with the yoke of disgrace and abasement, panic-stricken, scared stiff, in awe of His absolute power.

I beseech Thee in the name of Thy Supreme Being that derives its meaning from Thy timeless eternal greatness, I beseech Thee in the name Thy timeless eternal Greatness that derives its meaning from Thy omnipotent authority; I beseech Thee in the name of Thy omnipotent authority with which Thou occupied the Arsh, and created all that which has been created by Thee; so they, unto Thee, are very obedient, to send blessing on Muhammad and on the people of his house.
