بسم الله الر حمن الر حيم
You: All praise to Allah the Lord of the Alimeen (Everything).
ALLAH: My servant has praised Me.
You: The Most Merciful, The Especially Merciful.
ALLAH: My servant has complimented Me.
You: The Owner of the Day of Judgement.
ALLAH: My servant has glorfied Me.
You: It is You we worship and it is You we ask for help.
ALLAH: THis is between Me and my servant.
You: Guide us to the straight Path. The Path of those who You betowed Your favor upon not the path of those who gained Your Anger or went astray.
ALLAH: This is for my servant and my servant will get what he/she requested.
