Dua After Takbeer (Start of prayer) In English -1

I have turned my face sincerely towards He who has brought forth the heavens and the Earth and I am not of those who associate (others with Allah). Indeed my prayer, my sacrifice, my life and my death are for Allah, Lord of the worlds, no partner has He, with this I am commanded and I am of the Muslims. O Allah, You are the Sovereign, none has the right to be worshipped except You. You are my Lord and I am Your servant, I have wronged my own soul and have acknowledged my sin, so forgive me all my sins for no one forgives sins except You. Guide me to the best of characters for none can guide to it other than You, and deliver me from the worst of characters for none can deliver me from it other than You. Here I am, in answer to Your call, happy to serve you. All good is within Your hands and evil does not stem from You. I exist by your will and will return to you. Blessed and High are You, I seek Your forgiveness and repent unto You
Muslim: 771

Dua After Takbeer (Start of prayer) In English -3

Glory is to You O Allah, and praise. Blessed is Your Name and Exalted is Your Majesty. There is none worthy of worship but You. An-Nasa’i: 900, At-Tirmidhi: 243,

I would like to know how to do du’aa during the prayer, as the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did. Is it after the prayer or between the two prostrations or standing or when?

Praise be to Allah.
Note that there is not a particular part of the prayer when the du’aa ‘should be offered, but rather several parts of the prayer where the scholars have declared that the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah) be on him) “aa”, from the takbeer of opening to the final tasleem.
It is also the Sunnah to do du’aa after the prayer and there are several that we will mention below in sha Allah.
It should be noted that the best advice is that of Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and the best of the du’aa is the one that is in accordance with the Sunnah of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). ). The wording of Allah’s Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is the best wording, because he is the most knowledgeable of all peoples on the Arabic language and the most eloquent in his speech. Allah has allowed him to express the deepest meaning in a few words, which is called the conciseness of speech.
It is said that Abu Hurayrah said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him): “I was sent with a concise speech”. Reported by al-Bukhaari, 6611; Muslim, 523.
Al-Bukhaari said: I heard that brevity of speech meant that many of the meanings that would have taken books to write before were summed up in a sentence or two, and so on.
On this basis, if you mean du’aa ‘in your prayers to the places where it is prescribed and recommended (mustahabb) to say du’aa’, the best of duaa are those which are mentioned in the wording of the Prophet (peace be upon him). blessings of Allah be upon him).
If you can not do that and you can not memorize these du’aa and dhikrs, the best of the du’aa is the one who avoids using fancy speeches to the extreme, and who avoids the use of rhymes going to the point of absurdity. and that makes the du’aa ‘sincere and focused on the need in question, saying everything that is easy for you and all that Allah allows you to say.
It was reported that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said to a man, “What do you say when you pray?” He said, “I recite the tashahhud, then I say: Allaahumma inni as’aluka al-jannah wa a’oodhu bika min al-naar (O Allah, I ask you paradise and seek refuge in you against fire). I can not whisper like you and like Mu’aadh. “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said:” We murmured about them. “Reported by Abu Dawood, 792; classified as saheeh by al-Albaani in Sahih Abi Dawood.
Regarding du’aa ‘after the salaam, what the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) used to do, he said after finishing the prayer: Astghfir Allah, astaghfir Allah astaghfir Allah (I seek the forgiveness of Allah), I seek the forgiveness of Allah, I seek the forgiveness of Allah). Then he would say all the dhikrs that are told at that moment. See question no. 7646.
Shaykh Abd al-Azzeh ibn Baaz (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:
There is no sahih report that indicates that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) raised his hands following a mandatory prayer, or that his companions (may Allah have mercy on them) ) do the same, to our knowledge. . What some people do, raising their hands after prayer, is a bid’aah (innovation) for which there is no basis.
Al-Fataawa, 1/74.
Ibn al-Qayyim said:
Regarding du’aa ‘after the prayer in front of the qiblah or the congregation, it is not something that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) did. It is not narrated with a saheeh or hasan isnaad. As to do it only after the prayers of Fajr and ‘Asr’, he did not do it, any more than one of his successors (khulafa), and he did not teach that to his umma . It is rather something that some people thought it was good to compensate for not offering prayers to the Sunnah after these prayers. And Allah knows better.

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) offered most of the prayer-related du’aa during the prayer, and he ordered us to offer them during the prayer. This suits the state of the one who prays, because he faces his Lord and converses with him as long as he prays. When he says salaam, this conversation ends and he no longer stands in front of him and near him. So why should not he ask him while he talks with him, get closer to him and turn to him, then ask him when he turned away from him? Without a doubt, it’s better to do the opposite. There is another subtle point to emphasize: when the worshiper finished praying and remembered Allah and proclaimed his unity, glorified him, praised him, and magnified him by reciting the dhikrs prescribed following the prayer, mustahabb to send blessings on the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) after that, and to do du’aa ‘as he wishes, his du’aa should come immediately after this second act of worship, not because it is after prayer, but because it is a necessity for anyone who remembers Allah, praises him and sends blessings to the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and then do du’aa ‘, as it is said in the hadith of Faddaalah ibn’ Ubayd: “When one of you prays, let him begin by praising Allah, then let him send blessings on the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), then let him say as he tend. “
Al-Tirmidhi said: (it is) a saheeh hadith. Al-Haakim also called it “Sahih” and Al-Dhahabi agreed with him. Zaad al-Ma’aad, 1/257, 258.
Regarding the points during prayer where du’aa ‘should be offered, we will summarize this for you as follows:
1 – After opening the takbeer of prayer and before beginning to recite al-Faatihah. This is called Du’aa ‘al-Istiftaah (first supplication):

. It was reported that Abu Hurayrah said: When the Apostle of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) began to pray, he kept silent for a moment. I said, “May my father and mother be sacrificed for you, Messenger of Allah. What do you say when you are silent between takbeer and recitation? “He said:” I say: Allaahumma baa’id bayni wa bayna khataayaaya kama baaadta bayna al-mashriqi wa’l-maghrib. Allaahumma naqqini min khataayaaya kama yunaqqa al-thawb al-abyad al-danas min. Allaahumma ighsilni min khataayaaya bi’l-thalji wa’l-maa’i wa’l-barad (O Allah), put a great distance between me and my sins, as great as the distance you have made between the East and West. O Allah, cleanse me of sin as a white garment is cleansed of dirt. O Allah, wash away my sins with snow, water and hail. “
Reported by al-Bukhaari, 711; Muslim, 598.
2 – Du’aa ‘al-Qunoot in Witr
It has been reported that al-Hasan ibn ‘Ali had declared: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) taught me to say in Witr: “The Lord of Allahuma ihdini was wa’ aafini feeman ‘ aafayta wa tawallani feeman tawallaya wa baarik li feema a’tayta, wa qini sharra ma qadayta, ta innu taqdi wa la yuqda ‘alayk, wa innahu laa yadhillu man waalayta wa laa ya’izzu man’ aadayta, tabaarakta rabbana wa ta’ayaayt ( guide me among those whom you have guided, forgive me among those whom you have forgiven, turn to me in friendship with those in whom you have developed a friendship, bless me in what you have granted, and save I am evil of what you have decreed.In truth, you decide and no one can influence you, and he is not humiliated with whom you have befriended, nor is he honored who is your enemy. you, Lord, and exalted).
Reported by al-Tirmidhi, 464; al-Nasaa’i, 1745; Abu Dawood, 1425; Ibn Maajah, 1178.
This hadeeth was classified as hasan by al-Tirmidhi and others, and as saheeh by al-Albaani in Irwa ‘al-Ghaleel, p. 429.
3 – Du’aa ‘getting up, in case of calamity.
This is called Qunoot al-Nawaazil. This can be recited in all the mandatory prayers depending on the situation, and the faithful behind the imam should say Ameen. See question no. 20031.
4 – Bowing.
The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: “Subhaanak Allaahumma Rabbanaa wa bi hamdika Allaahumma ighfir li (Glory and praise to you, O Allah our Lord, forgive me).”
Reported by al-Bukhaari, 761; Muslim, 484, from the hadith of Aa’ishah.
5 – During the prostration.
This is the best of the du’aa, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said, “The closest you can to one of your Lord is when he prostrates himself. “aa” at this time. “Reported by Muslim, 482, of the Hadith of Abu Hurayrah.

There are many hadiths about this, for which we have no place to mention them here.

6 – Between the two prostrations.

One should say: “Allaahumma ighfir li warhamni wajburni wahdini warzuqni (O Allah, forgive me, have mercy on me, enrich me, guide me and grant me the provision).”

. Reported by al-Tirmidhi, 284; Ibn Maajah, 898 – from the hadith of Ibn Abbaas; classified as saheeh by al-Albaani in Sahih al-Tirmidhi. And there are others du’aa.

7 – After the tashahhud and before the salaam:

the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “If one of you has finished his last tashahhud, find refuge with Allah among four reasons and say: Allaahumma inni a’oodhu bika min ‘ adhaabi jahannam wa min ‘adhaab il-qabri wa min fitnat il-mahyaa wa’l-mamaat wa min sharri fitnat il-maseeh il-dajjaal (O Allah, I seek refuge with you from the torment of hell and the torment of the grave and the trial of life and death and the evil of the Dajjaal’s trial) “, narrated by al-Bukhaari, 1311; Muslim, 588 (this version narrated by Muslim), taken from the hadith of Abu Hurayrah. Then, after that, he will be able to pray for what he wants from the good things of this world and the hereafter, because of the hadith of Ibn Mas’ood: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) he) taught them tashahhud, then he said at the end, “Let him ask for all the good things he wants.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5876; Muslim, 402.

There are many du’aa that can be recited during prayer, but we can not name them all in this answer. We mentioned some of those who were told. Our advice to the questioner – and to every Muslim – is to have a copy of Al-Adhkaar al-Nawawi (may Allah be pleased with him), which is a voluminous book. If he wants something shorter, he should get a copy of al-Kalim al-Tayyib from Sheikh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah, published by al-Albaani (may Allaah have mercy on them).

And Allah knows better.
