Supplication which should be read before reciting the Noble Qur’an

بِسْمِ اللّهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

أَللّهُمَّ بِالْحَقِّ أَنْزَلْتَهُ وَ بِالْحَقِّ نَزَلَ. أَللّهُمَّ عَظِّمْ رَغَبَـتِي فِيـهِ وَاجْعَلْهُ نُوراً لِبَصَرِي وَ شِفآءً لِصَدْرِي وَ ذَهاباً لِهَمِّي وَ غَمِّي وَ حُـزْنِي. أَللّهُمَّ زَيِّنْ بِهِ لِسانِي وَ جَمِّلْ بِهِ وَجْهِي وَ قُوَّ بِهِ جَسَدِي وَ ثَقِّلْ بِهِ مِيْزانِي وَارْزُقْـنِي حَقَّ تِلاوَتِهِ عَلى طاعَتِكَ آناءَ الْلَّيْلِ وَ أَطْرافِ النَّهارِ وَاحْشُرْنِي مَعَ النَّبِيِّ مُحَمَّدٍ وَ آلِهِ الأَخْيارِ الأَبْرارِ الأَطْهارِ بِرَحْمَـتِكَ يا أَرْحَمَ راحِمِينَ.

O’ Allah! Surely You have revealed it (the Qur’an) with Truth and with the truth it descended. O’ Allah! Enhance my desire for it; and appoint it as a divine light for my eyes; and a healing for my breast; and make it (the Qur’an) that which removes my grief, sorrow and worries. O’ Allah! Through the Qur’an, beautify my tongue (that which I speak), and beautify my face, and strengthen my body, and make my scale of (good) deeds weighty, and grant me the ability to recite it as it should be recited in Your obedience - in the darkness of the night and the ends of the day, and raise me up with the Prophet, Muhammad and his family members - the chosen, glorified, the purified, by Your mercy. O’ the Most Merciful of those who are able to show mercy.
