O Allah, You are my Lord, none has the right to be worshiped except You,
khalaqtanee wa-ana عabduk(a),
You created me and I am Your servant
wa-ana عalaa عahdika wawaعdika maas-ta طaعt(u),
and I abide to Your covenant and promise [to honor it] as best I can,
aعoothu bika min sharri ma sanaعt(u),
I take refuge in You from the evil of which I committed
aboo-o laka biniعmatika عalayy(a),
I acknowledge Your favor upon me
wa-aboo-o bidhanbee, faghfir lee
and I acknowledge my sin, so forgive me,
fa-innahu la yaghfiruذُّnooba illaa ant.
for verily none can forgive sins except You.
Saheeh Al-Bukhaaree, Volume 8, Book 75, Number 318"If somebody recites it during the day with firm faith in it and dies on the same day before the evening, he will be from the people of Paradise and if somebody recites it at night with firm faith in it and dies before the morning he will be from the people of Paradise."
