Ali Quli Qarai, The Qur’ān with a Phrase-by-Phrase English Translation (2005)

A Supplication for Recitation on
Completing a Reading of the Qur’ān

O Allah,
You have helped me complete Your Book,
which You have sent down as a light
and appointed as an authority
over every scripture that You have sent down,
preferring it over every discourse
that You have dissertated,
a Criterion, by which You have separated
Your lawful from Your unlawful,
a Qur’ān, by which You have clarified
the approaches to Your ordinances,
a Scripture, which You have elaborated
very distinctly for Your servants,
a Revelation, which You have sent down
upon Your Prophet, Muḥammad
(Your blessings be upon him and his Household),
in a gradual revelation. You appointed it a light
by which we may be guided
from the darkness of error and ignorance,
by virtue of following it,
a healing for him who commits his ears
with an assenting understanding to
listening to it,
