O Allah! Forgive him and have Mercy on him and give him strength and pardon him. Be
generous to him and cause his entrace to be wide and wash him with water and snow
and hail.
Cleanse him of his transgressions as white cloth is cleansed of stains. Give him an
abode better than his home, and a family better than his family and a wife better than
his wife. Take him into Paradise and protect him from the punishment of the grave
(and of the fire)

We have come as intercessors, so forgive him.

O Allah! Make him for us a precursor, a forerunner and a treasure for his parents and
an answered intercessor. O Allah! Through him, make heavy their scaled and magnify
their reward. Unite him with the righteous believers, place him under the care of
Ibrahim, and protect him by Your mercy from the torment of Hell. Give him a home
better than his home, and a family better than his family. O Allah! Forgive those who
have gone before us, or children lost (by death), and those who have preceeded us in
