Special prayer at death-bed

Hello! Is there a special prayer to be read at the death-bed of the people who are about to pass on?

You could say the prayer for death:

"O my God! This is Thy servant and the son of Thy servant who hath believed in Thee and in Thy signs, and set his face towards Thee, wholly detached from all except Thee. Thou art, verily, of those who show mercy the most merciful.

Deal with him, O Thou Who forgivest the sins of men and concealest their faults, as beseemeth the heaven of Thy bounty and the ocean of Thy grace. Grant him admission within the precincts of Thy transcendent mercy that was before the foundation of earth and heaven. There is no God but Thee, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Generous.

Let him, then, repeat six times the greeting “Alláh-u-Abhá,” and then repeat nineteen times each of the following verses:

We all, verily, worship Allah

We all, verily, bow down before Allah

We all, verily, are devoted unto Allah

We all, verily, give praise unto Allah

We all, verily, yield thanks unto Allah

We all, verily, are patient in Allah

(If the dead be a woman, let him say: This is Thy handmaiden and the daughter of Thy handmaiden, etc...)"
