Dua Al-Istiftah (Supplication of Starting) Recited only in the first Rakath.

Transliteration: 

Subhana Kal-lah hum-ma wabi hamdika wata-bara kasmuka wata'ala jad-duka wala ilaha ghyruka.

Translation: Glory be to you, O Allah, and all praises are due unto you, and blessed is your name and high is your majesty and none is worthy of worship but you.

 

Next recitation is called Ta'awwuz (Also recited only in the first Rakath)

Transliteration: A'uzu bil-lahi minash Shayta-nir-rajeem

Translation: I seek Allah's protection from Satan who is accursed.

 

After this, recite the Tasmiah (Should be recited in every Rakath before starting a Surah)

Transliteration: Bismillah hir-Rahma nir-Raheem

Translation: In the name of Allah, the most Kind and the most Merciful.

Surah Fatiha (Recited in every Rakath, very important to memorize)

 

Transliteration:

Alhamdul lil-lahi rab-bil 'alameenAr rahma nir-raheemMaliki yawmid-deenIyyaka na'budu wa iyyaka nasta'eenIhdinas siratal mustaqeemSiratal Lazeena an'amta 'alayhimGhai-ril maghdubi 'alayhimWalad dal-leen. Ameen

 

Translation:

Praise is only for Allah, Lord of the Universe.The most Kind, the most Merciful.The master of the Day of Judgement.You alone we worship and to you alone we pray for help.Show us the straight way,The way of those whom you have blessed.Who have not deserved your anger,Nor gone astray.

 

After Surah Fatiha - recite any Surah from the Quran. Please note that the surah recited in the first rakath should be longer than the one recited in the second rakath.

We have used Surah Ikhlas as an example

Transliteration:

Qul huwal lahu ahad.Allah hus-Samad.Lam yalid walam yulad.Walam yakul-lahu Kufuwan ahad.

Translation:

Say: He is Allah, the only one.Allah helps and does not need help.He does not produce a child, and He was not born of anyone.There is no one equal to Him.

 

Supplication in Ruku (Vowing)

Recite Alla-hu Akbar, before going to Ruku. While in Ruku, recite the following supplication 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 or more times. Make it an odd number.

Transliteration: Sub-hana Rabbi-al 'ajeem.

Translation: Glory to my Lord the Exalted.

 

Qawmah (Standing After Ruku)

Transliteration: Sami 'allah hu liman hamida. Rab-bana lakal hamd.

Translation: Verily Allah listens to one who praises Him. Oh our Lord, all praises be to you.

 

First Sajdah (Prostration)

Before going to the Sajdah, recite Alla-hu Akbar. While in Sajdah, recite the following supplication 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 or more times. Make it an odd number.

Transliteration: Sub-hana Rabbi yal a'la

Translation: Oh Allah, glory be to you, the most High.

 

Jalsah (Sitting between two Sajdah)

To rise and sit from the first Sajdah, recite Alla-hu Akbar. Sit for a short while and recite the following:

Transliteration: Allah hum maghfirlee war-ham nee

Translation: Oh Allah, forgive me, and have mercy on me

 

 

Second Sajdah

Recite Alla-hu Akbar, before going to the secind Sajdah from Jalsah. 

Recite the same supplication as the first Sajdah.

 

Before starting second rakath, say Alla-hu Akbar while standing up. Now, you have completed one Rakath.

 

2ND RAKAT:

Then recite Tasmiah and Surah Fatiha. After Fatiha, recite tasmiah and another surah and proceed to Ruku by saying Alla-hu Akbar. Carry on the acts till the second Sajdah. After second Sajdah, say Alla-hu Akbar, but sit down for reciting Tashahud, Darud and some supplications before finishing the prayer with salam.

 

Tashahud:

Transliteration: 

At-tahiy-yatu lil-lahi was sala-watu wat-tay yibatuAs-salamu 'alayka ay-yuhan-nabiy-yuwa rahma tullahi wa bara-katuhuAs-salamu 'alayna wa'ala 'ibadil-la his-sali-heenAsh hadu al-la ilaha il-lal lahuwa ash hadu an-na Muhammadan'ab-duhu wa rasuluh.

Translation:

All compliments, all physical prayer,and all monitary worship are for Allah.Peace be upon you, Oh Prophet,and Allah's mercy and blesings.Peace be on us and on all righteous slaves of Allah.I bear witness that no one is worthy of worship except AllahAnd I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.

 

 

If you are offering 3 Rakath of salah (as in Maghrib), then after Tashahud in second Rakath, you say Alla-hu Akbar and stand up. Then you recite Tasmiah, Fatiha and other supplications. Note that a surah after Fatiha is only recited in the first two rakaths. Carry on till second Sajdah in the normal manner and sit for second Tashahud in the third Rakath. After that, you are to recite the following three supplications and finish the prayer. If you are offering 4 Rakath of salah, then don't sit for Tashahud in the third Rakath. Simply stand up after second Sajdah in the third rakath by saying Alla-hu Akbar. Carry on till second sajdah and sit for Tashahud in the fourth Rakath. Recite the following three supplications to finish the prayer.

 

Salat Alan-Nabi (Darud)
