O God, verily I ask you by Muhammad, Your Prophet, and Abraham, Your Friend, and Moses, Your Interlocutor, and Jesus, Your Word and Spirit; and by the Torah of Moses, the Gospel of Jesus, the Psalms of David, and the Furqan of Muhammad (the peace of God be upon them all!); by each revelation You revealed, or by each decree You decreed, or by each petitioner to Whom You gave, or by each rich man Whom you impoverished, or by each poor man that you enriched,  or by each strayer whom You guided; and I ask You by Your Name which You revealed to Moses (upon whom be peace); and I ask You by Your Name by which You disseminated the provisions of servants; and I ask You by Your Name which You laid upon the earth and this became established; and I ask You by Your Name which You laid upon the heavens so that they were lifted; and I ask You by Your Name which You laid upon the mountains, so that they were made stable;  and I ask You by Your Name which Your Throne was raised up; and I ask You by Your Name which is holy, pure, one eternal, and unique, which is revealed in Your Book from You [and] from the illuminating Light [al Nur al-mubin]; and I ask You by Your Name which You laid upon the day, so that it was light, and which You laid upon the night, so that it was darkened; and I ask You, by Your magnificence and splendour, and by the Light of Your Noble Face, to grant me the Quran and the knowledge of it, and to blend it with my flesh, my blood, my ear, and my eye, and to utilize my body through it by Your might and Your power. Verily, there is no might and no power save in You. O Most Compassionate of the compassionate!

(Abu Bakr al Siddiq)
