Translation
In the name of Allah,
the Beneficent the Merciful,
Praise be to Allah Lord of the Worlds,
the Beneficent the Merciful,
Owner of the Day of Judgement
Thee (alone) we ask for help.
Show us the straight path
the path of those whom
Thou hast favoured;
not the (path) of those
who earn Thine anger
nor of those who go astray.
Oh God, bless the mother
of Abdul Rahman
daughter of Mohammad bin Momin
bin Jameel bin Khadwan al Omariyah
among the secured (in paradise)
on the day of supreme horror.
Keep her with the companions
of Prophet Mohammad
Peace be upon him, and endow her
the intercession of the Prophet
as You are the Supreme authority
on every thing.
