O Allah, gladden the people of the graves,

O Allah, enrich every poor person,

O Allah, satisfy every hungry one,

O Allah, clothe every unclothed one,

O Allah, help every debtor pay his debts,

O Allah, relieve every distressed one,

O Allah, return every traveler (to his home),

O Allah release every prisoner,

O Allah, correct every wrong in the affairs of the Muslims,

O Allah, cure every sick one,

O Allah, ease our poverty by Your wealth,

O Allah, change our evil state to a good one through Your excellent state,

O Allah, relieve us of our debts, and help us against poverty, Surely You have power over all things.

If women would yearn for closeness with God the way they yearn for closeness from an earthly male, their lives would be absolutely transformed.
The twelve months of the year are like the twelve sons of Prophet Yaʿqūb. And just as Prophet Yūsuf was the most beloved to Yaʿqūb, the month of Ramaḍān is the most beloved to Allāh.
And just as Allāh forgave the eleven brothers by the duʿāʾ of one; Yūsuf, He can forgive your eleven months of sins by your duʿāʾ in Ramaḍān.

— Imām Ibn Jawzī, in:
