    o'Allah if you give me money don't make my
    happiness disappear

    if you give me power don't make me out of my mind
    if you give me success don't make me self-
    if you make me humble don't make me loss
    my dignity
    o'Allah teach me loving people as i love myself

    Teach me blaming myself for my mistakes as i blame people for thier mistakes

    Teach me that forgiveness is the highest level of power

    Teach me that the revenge is the first grade of being weak

    o'Allah don't make me infected with conceit when i succeed

    don't make me hopeless when i failed
    o'Allah if you take my money away give me hope

    if you take my success away give me power
    and if you take my health away give me faith


    if i hurt people give me the ability to appologize

    if people hurt me give me the ability to forgive

    and if i forget you one moment in my life don't take my faith away even if one second

    if you asked me about my sins in resurrection day i will ask you about your mercy
    if you make me in paradise i will thank you as i always do

    and if you make me in the hell i will tell people in the hell that i Love you my God
    make me a good slave so you will give me your gifts

    ..and if i am a bad slave give me your mercy

    I really like that. It also reminds me of the Serenity Prayer:

    God grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change,
    the courage to change the things we can,
    and the wisdom to know the difference.

    I really like that too Muslim...reminds me of the prayer of Saint Francis

    Saint Francis's Prayer for Peace!

    Lord, make me an instrument of your peace:
    Where there is hatred, let me sow love:
    Where there is injury, pardon;
    Where there is doubt, faith;
    Where there is despair, hope;
    Where there is darkness, light;
    Where there is sadness, joy.
    O Divine Master, grant that I may not
    So much seek to be consoled
    As to console,
    To be understood as to understand,
    To be loved as to love.

    For it is in giving that we receive,
    It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
    And it is in dying that we are born
    to eternal life.
