Let me make much of the good things that happen to me in life,
though they be little
- because happiness results only from gratitude.
Let me make little of trials and hurdles that come before me
though they be great
- for You have selected me for these tests
- thought me capable & worthy of facing them;
chosen them as my route to reaching You.
Therefore, oh Allah!
Make me strong.
Protect me from despair
- lest I seek help from others and not You.'
