The following is a morning prayer reading that can be said, which is quoted from the NU Online page.
Morning prayer 1
Oh God, with you we have become, and with you we have become, and with you we live, and with you we die, and to you is the resurrection.
Allahumma bika ashbahna, wa bika amsaina, wa bika nahya, wa bika namutu, wa ilaikan nusyuru.
Meaning: “Oh God, with You I wake up in the morning, with You I wake up in the afternoon, with You we live, with You we die. Only to You we return.”
Good morning prayer 2
We have become and the kingdom belongs to God, and praise be to God, there is no god but God alone, He has no partner, His is the kingdom, and His is the praise, and He is over all things O my Lord, I ask You for the good of this night and the good of what comes after it, and I seek refuge in You from the evil of this night and the evil of what follows it. Daha, Lord I seek refuge In you from laziness and bad old age, I seek refuge in you from torment in the fire and torment in the grave
Ashbahna wa ashbahal mulku lillahi wal hamdu lillahi, la ilaha illallahu wahdahu la syarika lah, lahul mulku wa lahul hamdu wa huwa ‘ala kullli syai’in qadir. Rabbi, as ‘aluka khaira ma fi hadzihil lailata wa khaira ma ba’daha, wa a’udzu bika min syarri ma fi hadzihil lailata wa khaira ma ba’daha. Rabbi, a’udzu bika minal kasli wa su’il kibari. A’udzu bika min’adzabin fin nari wa’adzabin dil qabri.
Meaning: “We and the power of God rise in the morning. Praise be to God. There is no god but God the Almighty, He has no partner. To Him is all power and praise. He is the power over all things. My God, I beseech You the good of this night and the night after.”
“I ask for Your protection from evil tonight and the night after. My Lord, I ask for Your protection from evil tonight and the night after. My Lord, I ask for Your protection from laziness and old age. I ask for Your protection from the punishment of hell and torment of the grave.”
Morning Zikr reading
Citing the book Doa-Doa Mustajab & Dzikir Rasulullah SAW by Imam Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah bin Baz, there is a dhikr prescribed for every Muslim man and woman.
You can read this remembrance after reading the morning prayer 100 times so that you are protected from the devil’s disturbances that day until the evening comes.
There is no god but Allah alone, He has no partner, His is the kingdom and His is the praise, and He is over all things capable
Latin: Laa ilaha illallahu wahdahu laa syariika lahu, lahul mulku walahul hamdu wa huwa ‘alaa kulli sya-in qodiir
Meaning: “There is no god but Allah alone, there is no partner for Him, only for Him is the kingdom and all praise. And He is the Almighty over all things.”
Thus reading the morning prayer that can be practiced every day. Hope it is useful.
