A prayer from Ṣubḥ-i-Azal

O God, forgive my forefathers and O God forgive my foremothers; and O God forgive my believer brothers and O God forgive my believer sisters; and O God forgive my believer paternal uncles and O God forgive my believer paternal aunts; and O God forgive my believer maternal uncles and O God forgive my believer maternal aunts; and O God forgive my nearest believer relations; and O God forgive all believers among all male and females and enter all under Thy mercy so that they may become among the well-guided!

--- Mīrzā Yaḥyā Nūrī Ṣubḥ-i-Azal (d. 1912), kitāb al-kalām al-muhājir al-ṣādiq (the Book of the Truthful/Veracious Immigrant), (my trans.)
