A Beautiful Prayer: Koi Urooj De Na Zawaal De,

Koi Urooj De Na Zawaal De, Mujhe Sirf Itana Kamaal De
Mujhe Apni Raah Mein Daal De, Ki Zamaana Meri Misaal De

Teri Rehmaton Ka Nuzool ho, Mujhe Mehnato'n Ka Sila Mile
Mujhe Maalo-o-Zar ki Hawas Nahin, Mujhe Bus Tu Rizq-e-Halaal De

Mere Zehn Mein Teri Fikr Ho, Meri Saans Mein Tera Zikr Ho
Tera Khauf Meri Nijaat Ho, Sabhi Khauf Dil se Nikaal De

Teri Baargaah Mei Ae Khuda Meri Roz-o-Shab Hai Yahi Dua
Tu Rahim hai Tu Karim hai, Mujhe Mushkilon Se Nikaal De.
                                          (Received from Vikrant Dogra, Jammu)

Meaning of few difficult words:

Urooj …..  Success, Victory, Ascent or progress

Teri Rehmaton Ka Nuzool ho = your blessings may fall upon me
