P. 85

رَبَّنَا لَا تُؤَاخِذْنَا إِن نَّسِينَا أَوْ أَخْطَأْنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْنَا إِصْرًا كَمَا حَمَلْتَهُ عَلَى الَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِنَا ۚ رَبَّنَا وَلَا تُحَمِّلْنَا مَا لَا طَاقَةَ لَنَا بِهِ ۖ وَاعْفُ عَنَّا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَارْحَمْنَا ۚ أَنتَ مَوْلَانَا فَانصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ (Quran 2:285)

“Our Lord, do not impose blame upon us if we have forgotten or erred. Our Lord, and lay not upon us a burden like that which You laid upon those before us. Our Lord, and burden us not with that which we have no ability to bear. And pardon us; and forgive us; and have mercy upon us. You are our protector, so give us victory over the disbelieving people.” (Quran 2:285)

P. 118-12O

اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ كُلُّهُ، اللَّهُمَّ لاَ قَابِضَ لِمَا بَسَطْتَ، وَلاَ بَاسِطَ لِمَا قَبَضْتَ، وَلاَ هَادِيَ لِمَنْ أَضْلَلْتَ، وَلاَ مُضِلَّ لِمَنْ هَدَيْتَ، وَلاَ مُعْطِيَ لِمَا مَنَعْتَ، وَلاَ مَانِعَ لِمَا أَعْطَيْتَ، وَلاَ مُقَرِّبَ لِمَا بَاعَدْتَ، وَلاَ مُبَاعِدَ لِمَا قَرَّبْتَ، اللَّهُمَّ ابْسُطْ عَلَيْنَا مِنْ بَرَكَاتِكَ، وَرَحْمَتِكَ، وَفَضْلِكَ، وَرِزْقِكَ، اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ النَّعِيمَ الْمُقِيمَ الَّذِي لاَ يَحُولُ وَلاَ يَزُولُ، اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي أَسْأَلُكَ النَّعِيمَ يَوْمَ الْعَيْلَةِ، وَالأَمْنَ يَوْمَ الْخَوْفِ، اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي عَائِذٌ بِكَ مِنْ شَرِّ مَا أَعْطَيْتَنَا وَشَرِّ مَا مَنَعْتَنَا، اللَّهُمَّ حَبِّبْ إِلَيْنَا الإِيمَانَ وَزِيِّنْهُ فِي قُلُوبِنَا، وَكَرِّهْ إِلَيْنَا الْكُفْرَ وَالْفُسُوقَ وَالْعِصْيَانَ، وَاجْعَلْنَا مِنَ الرَّاشِدِينَ، اللَّهُمَّ تَوَفَّنَا مُسْلِمِينَ، وَأَحْيِنَا مُسْلِمِينَ، وَأَلْحِقْنَا بِالصَّالِحِينَ غَيْرَ خَزَايَا وَلاَ مَفْتُونِينَ، اللَّهُمَّ قَاتِلِ الْكَفَرَةَ الَّذِينَ يُكَذِّبُونَ رُسُلَكَ، وَيَصُدُّونَ عَنْ سَبِيلِكَ، وَاجْعَلْ عَلَيْهِمْ رِجْزَكَ وَعَذَابَكَ، اللَّهُمَّ قَاتِلِ الكَفَرَةَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُوا الْكِتَابَ، إِلَهَ الْحَقِّ (Sahih Adabul Mufrad)

“O Allah to You belongs the perfect praise, O Allah none can hold back what You give, and none can give what You hold back, and none can bring close that which You put afar, and none can make far that which You bring close, O Allah give us from Your blessings, Your mercy, Your bounties, Your provision. O Allah, I ask You permanent bounties that don’t change or end, O Allah, I ask You bounties on the Day of hardship, and I ask You for safety on the Day of fear. O Allah, I seek refuge with You from the evil of that which You have given us and what you haven’t. O Allah, make Eeman (true belief) beloved to us and adorn it in our hearts, and make us detest disbelief, evil sins and wrongdoing, and make us from the guided ones. O Allah make us die as Muslims, and live as Muslims, and join us with the righteous ones without humiliation or turmoil. O Allah, destroy the disbelievers that deny Your messenger, and block others from Your path, and descend upon them Your punishment, O Allah, destroy the disbelievers who were given the Book. You are the True God.” (Sahih Adabul Mufrad)

“The disbelievers who were given the Book” are identified as the people of the book, meaning Jews and Christians.
