Oh Allah I bind Thee by this clay and of that angel who had picked up this clay and of the Prophet through whom this clay was sent and of that vicegerent who lies buried under this clay and ask Thee to shower Thy blessing on Mohammed (s.a.w.a.) and Ahle Bait and make this clay a cure fore all my diseases and a guardian against all fears.

Transliteration: ALLA-HOOMMA INNI AS'ALOKA BE-HAQQIL MAL-AKIL-LAZI QABZAHA WA ASA'LOKA BE-HAQQIN-NA-BI-YIL-LAZI KHAZANAHA WA AS'ALOKA BE-HAQQIL-VASI-YIL-LAZI HALLA FEEHA AN TOSALLI ALA MOHAMMADIN WA AN TAJ'ALIHA SHIFAA.AM MIN KOOLLE DAA'IN WA AMANAM MIN KOOLLE SOO IN.
Oh Allah I bind Thee by that angel who had lifted a handful clay; by the prophet who had preserved it in the bottle, by the vicegerent who lies buried under it and pray Thee to shower Thy blessing on Mohammed and Aale Mohammed and make this pure clay a cure for all diseases, a shield against all fears, and a safeguard against all curses.
After that the Khake shifa should be tied in a cloth and over it should be recited surre Inna Anzalana.

Verily, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alteration of the night and the day, there are signs for men who possess wisdom.
Those who remember Allah standing and sitting and reclining on their sides and think (Seriously) in the creation of the heaven and the earth saying ‘O’ Our Lord! Thou hast not created (all) this in vain! Glory be to Thee! Save us then from the torment of the (Hell) fire’.
O’ our lord! whomsoever Thou causeth to enter the (hell) fire, surely Thou hast put him to disgrace; there is not, for the unjust, any of the helpers.
O’ Our Lord! We have indeed heard the voice of a Crier (Messenger), calling (us) unto faith, saying, “Believe ye in your Lord!” therefore “Forgive us then our sins and remove away from us our evil deeds and cause us to die with the virtuous ones”.
O’ Our Lord! and give us what Thou didst promise us through Thy Prophets, and disgrace us not on the Day of Resurrection; Verily, Thou breakest not Thy Promise”. (Quran 3: 190-194).
