Is it alright to ask your boss for a raise? How do you ask it in a nicely manner? Is it a good idea or not when you know you deserved it?

I did it once. I was working with a Malaysian company operating in the Philippines and have established good relationship with the country manager. One time, while we were dining out, I delivered a good joke that resulted in his giving me a salary raise!

I think its okay for you to do that especially if you know that you deserve it. I think it will also depend on the company and the kind of boss you have. In my case, even if I know that I deserve to have more than what I receive now, I dont think my boss is ever gone grant me my request if I have to ask him that. I dont he also has the initiative to do that so I really dont expect a lot from him.
