T. B. Irving, The Qur’an: The First American Version; Translated and Commentary (1985)

The following longer prayer is usually said whenever one completes reading the Qurʾān all the way through:

O God, calm my desolation in my grave!
O God, grant me mercy through the Mighty Qurʾān and place it before me as a token and as a Light and guidance, and a mercy.

O God, make me remember whatever I may forget of it, teach me what I may ignore of it, and sustain me while it is being recited in the small hours of the night and the early hours of the day.

Make it an instrument to [protect] me, O Lord of the Universe!
