Chapter 22: At-Tashahhud (Sitting in Prayer)

1 -“All greetings of humility are for Allah , and all prayers and goodness . Peace be upon you , O Prophet , and the mercy of Allah and His blessings . Peace be upon us and upon the righteous slaves of Allah . I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah , and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger. ” (Sahih Muslim and Bukhari)

التَّحِيّـاتُ للهِ وَالصَّلَـواتُ والطَّيِّـبات ، السَّلامُ عَلَيـكَ أَيُّهـا النَّبِـيُّ وَرَحْمَـةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكـاتُه ، السَّلامُ عَلَيْـنا وَعَلـى عِبـادِ للهِ الصَّـالِحـين . أَشْـهَدُ أَنْ لا إِلـهَ إِلاّ الله ، وَأَشْـهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمّـداً عَبْـدُهُ وَرَسـولُه

Attahiyyaatu lillaahi wassalawaatu , wattayyibaatu , assalaamu ‘alayka ‘ayyuhan-Nabiyyu wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu, assalaamu ‘alaynaa wa ‘alaa ‘ibaadillaahis-saaliheen. ‘Ash-hadu ‘an laa ‘ilaaha ‘illallaahu wa ‘ash-hadu ‘anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa Rasooluhu.

CHAPTER 21- When prostrating due to recitation of the Quran

1 – “My face fell prostrate before He who created it and brought forth its faculties of hearing and seeing by His might and power. (So Blessed is Allah, the best of creators). (At-Tirmithi 2/474, Ahmad 6/30, and Al-Hakim)

سَجَـدَ وَجْهـي للَّـذي خَلَقَـهُ وَصَـوَّرَهُ وَشَقَّ سَمْـعَـهُ وَبَصَـرَهُ بِحَـوْلِـهِ وَقُـوَّتِهِ فَتَبَارَكَ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِين

Sajada wajhiya lillathee khalaqahu, wa shaqqa sam’ahu wa basarahu bihawlihi wa quwwatihi. Fatabaarakallaahu ‘ahsanul-khaaliqeen.

2 – O Allah, write it as a reward for me, and release me from a burden for it, and make it a I treasure for me in Paradise. Accept it from me as You accepted it from your servant Dawud. (At-Tirmidhi 2/473, and Al-Hakim who graded it authentic and Ath-Thahabi agreed 1/219)

اللّهُـمَّ اكْتُـبْ لي بِهـا عِنْـدَكَ أَجْـراً ، وَضَـعْ عَنِّـي بِهـا وِزْراً ، وَاجْعَـلها لي عِنْـدَكَ ذُخْـراً ، وَتَقَبَّـلها

Allaahum-maktub lee bihaa ‘indaka ‘ajran, wa aha’ ‘annee bihaa wizran, waj’alhaa lee ‘indaka thukhran, wa taqabbalhaa minnee kamaa taqabbaltahaa min’abdika Daawooda.

Chapter 20 – Between the two prostrations

1 – “My Lord forgive me, My Lord forgive me.” (Reference: Abu Dawud 1/231. See also Al-Albani, Sahih ibn Majah 1/148.)

رَبِّ اغْفِـرْ لي ، رَبِّ اغْفِـرْ لي

Rabbighfir lee, Rabbighfir lee. 

2 – O Allah forgive me, have mercy on me, guide me, support me, protect me, provide for me and elevate me.(Reference: Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, At-Tirmithi. See also Al-Albani, Sahih At-Tirmithi 1/90 and Sahih Ibn Majah 1/148.)

اللّهُـمَّ اغْفِـرْ لي ، وَارْحَمْـني ، وَاهْدِنـي ، وَاجْبُرْنـي ، وَعافِنـي وَارْزُقْنـي وَارْفَعْـني

Allaahum-maghfir lee, warhamnee, wahdinee, wajburnee, wa ‘aafinee, warzuqnee, warfa’nee. 

 

Chapter 19 – While prostrating

1 – Glory is to my Lord, the Most High. (This is said three times in Arabic.) (Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, An-Nasa’i, At-Tirmidhi, Ahmad)

Subhaanaka Allaahumma Rabbanaa wa bihamdika Allaahum-maghfir lee.

3 – Glory (to You), Most Holy (are You), Lord of the angels and the Spirit. (Muslim)

سُبـّوحٌ قُـدّوس، رَبُّ الملائِكَـةِ وَالـرُّوح

Subboohun, Quddoosun, Rabbul-malaa’ikati warrooh.

4-O Allah, to You I prostrate myself and in You I believe. To You I have submitted. My face is prostrated to the One Who created it, fashioned it, and gave it hearing and sight. Blessed is Allah, the Best of creators (Muslim)

اللّهُـمَّ لَكَ سَـجَدْتُ وَبِـكَ آمَنْـت ، وَلَكَ أَسْلَـمْت ، سَجَـدَ وَجْهـي للَّـذي خَلَقَـهُ وَصَـوَّرَهُ وَشَقَّ سَمْـعَـهُ وَبَصَـرَه ، تَبـارَكَ اللهُ أَحْسـنُ الخـالِقيـن

Allaahumma laka sajadtu wa bika ‘aamantu, wa laka ‘aslamtu, sajada wajhiya lillathee khalaqahu, wa sawwarahu, wa shaqqa sam’ahu wa basarahu, tabaarakallaahu ‘ahsanul-khaaliqeen.

5 – Glory is to You, Master of power, of dominion, of majesty and greatness. (Abu Dawud 1/230, An-Nasa’i and Ahmad. Its chain of narration is good (Hasan))

اللّهُـمَّ لَكَ سَـجَدْتُ وَبِـكَ آمَنْـت ، وَلَكَ أَسْلَـمْت ، سَجَـدَ وَجْهـي للَّـذي خَلَقَـهُ وَصَـوَّرَهُ وَشَقَّ سَمْـعَـهُ وَبَصَـرَه ، تَبـارَكَ اللهُ أَحْسـنُ الخـالِقيـن

Subhaana thil-jabarooti, walmalakooti, walkibriyaa’i, wal’adhamati.

6 – O Allah, forgive me all my sins, great and small, the first and the last, those that are apparent and those that are hidden. (Muslim)

Allaahum-maghfir lee thanbee kullahu, diqqahu wa jillahu, wa ‘awwalahu wa ‘aakhirahu wa ‘alaaniyata hu wa sirrahu.

7- O Allah, I seek protection in Your pleasure from Your anger, and I seek protection in Your forgiveness from Your punishment. I seek protection in You from You. I cannot count Your praises. You are as You have praised Yourself. (Muslim)

اللّهُـمَّ إِنِّـي أَعـوذُ بِرِضـاكَ مِنْ سَخَطِـك ، وَبِمعـافاتِـكَ مِنْ عُقوبَـتِك ، وَأَعـوذُ بِكَ مِنْـك ، لا أُحْصـي ثَنـاءً عَلَـيْك ، أَنْـتَ كَمـا أَثْنَـيْتَ عَلـى نَفْسـِك

Allâhumma innî acûdhu bi-ridâka min sakhatika, wa bi-mucâfâtika min cuqûbatika. Wa acûdhu bika minka. Lâ uhsî thanâ’an calayka, anta kamâ athnayta calâ nafsika.

1- ”Allah hears whoever praises Him”. (Bukhari) [This supplication is to be made while rising].

سَمِـعَ اللهُ لِمَـنْ حَمِـدَه

Sami’allaahu liman hamidah.

2 – Our Lord, praise is Yours, abundant, good and blessed praise.(Bukhari)

رَبَّنـا وَلَكَ الحَمْـدُ حَمْـداً كَثـيراً طَيِّـباً مُـبارَكاً فيه

Rabbanaa wa lakal-hamd, hamdan i katheeran tayyiban mubaarakanfeeh.

3-‘(A praise that) fills the heavens and the earth and what lies between them, and whatever else You please . (You Allah) are most worthy of praise and majesty , and what the slave has said – we are all Your slaves . O Allah , there is none who can withhold what You give, and none may give what You have withheld . And the might of the mighty person cannot benefit him against You.’ (Muslim)

مِلْءَ السَّمـواتِ وَمِلْءَ الأَرْض ، وَما بَيْـنَهُمـا ، وَمِلْءَ ما شِئْـتَ مِنْ شَيءٍ بَعْـدْ . أَهـلَ الثَّـناءِ وَالمَجـدْ ، أََحَـقُّ ما قالَ العَبْـد ، وَكُلُّـنا لَكَ عَـبدْ . اللّهُـمَّ لا مانِعَ لِما أَعْطَـيْت ، وَلا مُعْطِـيَ لِما مَنَـعْت ، وَلا يَنْفَـعُ ذا الجَـدِّ مِنْـكَ الجَـد

Mil’as-samaawaati wa mU’al-‘ardhi wa maa baynahumaa, wa mil’a maa shi’ta min shay ‘in ba’d. ‘Ahlath-thanaa’i walmajdi, ‘ahaqqu maa qaalal-‘abdu, wa kullunaa laka ‘abdun. Allaahumma laa maani’a limaa ‘a’tayta, wa laa mu’tiya limaa mana’ta, wa laa yanfa’uthal-jaddi minkal-jadd.

Chapter 17 – While bowing in prayer

1 – “How perfect my Lord is, The Supreme. [three times]”(Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, An-Nasa’i, At-Tirmidhi, Ahmad)

(سُبْـحانَ رَبِّـيَ الْعَظـيم . (ثلاثاً

Subhaana Rabbiyal-‘Adheem.

2- Glory is to You , O Allah , our Lord , and praise is Yours . O Allah , forgive me. (Bukhari, Muslim)

3- Glory (to You) , Most Holy (are You) , Lord of the angels and the Spirit. (Muslim, Abu Dawud)

سُبـّوحٌ قُـدّْوس ، رَبُّ الملائِكَـةِ وَالـرُّوح

Subboohun, Quddoosun, Rabbul-malaa’ikati warrooh.

 

4 –  O Allah , to You I bow (in prayer) and in You I believe and to You I have submitted. Before You my hearing is humbled , as is my sight , my mind , my bones , my nerves and what my feet have mounted upon (for travel). (Muslim, Abu Dawud, An-Nasa’i, At-Tirmidhi)

اللّهُـمَّ لَكَ رَكَـعْتُ وَبِكَ آمَـنْت ، ولَكَ أَسْلَـمْت ، خَشَـعَ لَكَ سَمْـعي ، وَبَصَـري ، وَمُخِّـي ، وَعَظْمـي ، وَعَصَـبي ، وَما استَقَـلَّ بِهِ قَدَمي

Allaahumma laka raka’tu, wa bika ‘aamantu, wa laka ‘aslamtu khasha’a laka sam’ee, wa basaree, wa mukhkhee, wa ‘adhmee, wa ‘asabee, wa mastaqalla bihi qadamee.

5 – “Glory be to the One Who has all power, sovereignty, magnificence and might.”(Abu Dawud, An-Nasa’i (And it’s Sahih(Authentic)), Ahmad)

سُبْـحانَ ذي الْجَبَـروت ،والمَلَـكوت ، وَالكِبْـرِياء ، وَالْعَظَـمَه

Subhaana thil-jabarooti, walmalakooti, walkibriyaa’i, wal’adhamati.

‘Awf bin Malik said:

“I prayed Qiyam with the Prophet (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam). He started by using the Siwak and performing wudu, then he stood and prayed. He started reciting Al-Baqarah and he did not come to any verse that spoke of mercy but he paused and asked for mercy, and he did not come to any verse that spoke of punishment but he paused (and sought refuge with Allah from that). Then he bowed and he stayed bowing for as long as he had stood,and he said while bowing: ‘Subhanaka Dhil-jabaraut wal-malakut wal-kibriya’ wal-‘azamah (Glory is to You, Master of power, of dominion, of majesty and greatness.)’ Then he prostrated for as long as he had bowed, saying while prostrating: ‘Subhana Dhil-jabarut wal-malakut wal-kibriya’ wal-‘azamah (Glory be to the One Who has all power, sovereignty, magnificence and might.)’ Then he recited Al Imran, then another surah and another, doing that each time.”

 

Chapter 16: Supplications for the Beginning of the Prayer

1- O Allah , separate me from my sins as You have separated the East from the West. O Allah, cleanse me of my transgressions as the white garment is cleansed of stains . O Allah , wash away my sins with ice and water and frost. (Bukhari, Muslim)

اللّهُـمَّ باعِـدْ بَيـني وَبَيْنَ خَطـايايَ كَما باعَدْتَ بَيْنَ المَشْرِقِ وَالمَغْرِبْ ، اللّهُـمَّ نَقِّنـي مِنْ خَطايايَ كَمـا يُـنَقَّى الثَّـوْبُ الأَبْيَضُ مِنَ الدَّنَسْ ، اللّهُـمَّ اغْسِلْنـي مِنْ خَطايـايَ بِالثَّلـجِ وَالمـاءِ وَالْبَرَدْ

Allaahumma baa’id baynee wa bayna khataayaaya kamaa baa’adta baynal-mashriqi walmaghribi, Allaahumma naqqinee min khataayaaya kamaa yunaqqath-thawbul-‘abyadhu minad-danasi, Allaahum-maghsilnee min khataayaaya, bith-thalji walmaa’i walbarad.

2 – 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. (Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, An-Nasa’i, At-Tirmidhi)

سُبْـحانَكَ اللّهُـمَّ وَبِحَمْـدِكَ وَتَبارَكَ اسْمُـكَ وَتَعـالى جَـدُّكَ وَلا إِلهَ غَيْرُك

Subhaanaka Allaahumma wa bihamdika, wa tabaarakasmuka, wa ta’aalaa jadduka, wa laa ‘ilaaha ghayruka.

3 -O Allah, Lord of Jibra-eel, Meeka-eel and Israfeel (great angles), Creator of the heavens and the Earth, Knower of the seen and the unseen. You are the arbitrator between Your servants in that which they have disputed. Guide me to the truth by Your leave, in that which they have differed, for verily You guide whom You will to a straight path. (Muslim)

اللّهُـمَّ رَبَّ جِـبْرائيل ، وَميكـائيل ، وَإِسْـرافيل، فاطِـرَ السَّمواتِ وَالأَرْض ، عالـِمَ الغَيْـبِ وَالشَّهـادَةِ أَنْـتَ تَحْـكمُ بَيْـنَ عِبـادِكَ فيـما كانوا فيهِ يَخْتَلِفـون. اهدِنـي لِمـا اخْتُـلِفَ فيـهِ مِنَ الْحَـقِّ بِإِذْنِك ، إِنَّـكَ تَهْـدي مَنْ تَشـاءُ إِلى صِراطٍ مُسْتَقـيم

Allahumma rabba jibra-eel, wameeka-eel, wa-israfeel fatiras-samawati walard, AAalimal-ghaybi washshahadah, anta tahkumu bayna AAibadika feema kanoo feehi yakhtalifoon. ihdinee limakh-tulifa feehi minal-haqqi bi-ithnik, innaka tahdee man tasha-o ila siratin mustaqeem.

4-  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)

وَجَّهـتُ وَجْهِـيَ لِلَّذي فَطَرَ السَّمـواتِ وَالأَرْضَ حَنـيفَاً وَمـا أَنا مِنَ المشْرِكين ، إِنَّ صَلاتـي ، وَنُسُكي ، وَمَحْـيايَ ، وَمَماتـي للهِ رَبِّ العالَمين ، لا شَريـكَ لَهُ وَبِذلكَ أُمِرْتُ وَأَنا مِنَ المسْلِـمين . اللّهُـمَّ أَنْتَ المَلِكُ لا إِلهَ إِلاّ أَنْت ،أَنْتَ رَبِّـي وَأَنـا عَبْـدُك ، ظَلَمْـتُ نَفْسـي وَاعْـتَرَفْتُ بِذَنْبـي فَاغْفِرْ لي ذُنوبي جَميعاً إِنَّـه لا يَغْـفِرُ الذُّنـوبَ إلاّ أَنْت .وَاهْدِنـي لأَحْسَنِ الأَخْلاقِ لا يَهْـدي لأَحْسَـنِها إِلاّ أَنْـت ، وَاصْـرِف عَـنّْي سَيِّئَهـا ، لا يَصْرِفُ عَـنّْي سَيِّئَهـا إِلاّ أَنْـت ، لَبَّـيْكَ وَسَعْـدَيْك ، وَالخَـيْرُ كُلُّـهُ بِيَـدَيْـك ، وَالشَّرُّ لَيْـسَ إِلَـيْك ، أَنا بِكَ وَإِلَيْـك ، تَبـارَكْتَ وَتَعـالَيتَ أَسْتَغْـفِرُكَ وَأَتوبُ إِلَـيك

5.Allah is the Greatest, Most Great. Allah is the Greatest, Most Great. Allah is the Greatest, Most Great. Praise is to Allah, abundantly. Praise is to Allah, abundantly. Praise is to Allah, abundantly. Glory is to Allah, at the break of day and at its end. [Recite three times in Arabic.] I seek refuge in Allah from Satan. From his breath and from his voice and from his whisper. (Abu Dawud, Ibn Majah, Ahmad, Muslim)

اللهُ أَكْبَـرُ كَبـيرا ، اللهُ أَكْبَـرُ كَبـيرا ، اللهُ أَكْبَـرُ كَبـيرا ، وَالْحَـمْدُ للهِ كَثـيرا ، وَالْحَـمْدُ للهِ كَثـيرا ، وَالْحَـمْدُ للهِ كَثـيرا ، وَسُبْـحانَ اللهِ بكْـرَةً وَأَصيـلا . ( ثَلاثاً ) أَعـوذُ بِاللهِ مِنَ الشَّـيْطانِ مِنْ نَفْخِـهِ وَنَفْـثِهِ وَهَمْـزِه

Allaahu ‘Akbar Kabeera, Allaahu ‘Akbar Kabeera, Allaahu ‘Akbar Kabeera, walhamdu lillaahi katheera, walhamdu lillaahi katheera, walhamdu lillaahi katheera, wa Subhaanallaahi bukratan wa’aseela. – ‘A ‘oothu billaahi minash-Shaytaan: min nafkhihi, wa nafthihi, wa hamzihi.

6 – “O Allah, to You belongs all praise, You are the Light of the heavens and the Earth and all that is within them. To You belongs all praise, You are the Sustainer of the heavens and the Earth and all that is within them. To You belongs all praise. You are Lord of the heavens and the Earth and all that is within them. To You belongs all praise and the kingdom of the heavens and the Earth and all that is within them. To You belongs all praise, You are the King of the heavens and the Earth and to You belongs all praise. You are The Truth, Your promise is true, your Word is true, and the Day in which we will encounter You is true, the Garden of Paradise is true and the Fire is true, and the Prophets are true, Muhammad r is true and the Final Hour is true. O Allah, unto You I have submitted, and upon You I have relied, and in You I have believed, and to You I have turned in repentance, and over You I have disputed, and to You I have turned for judgment. So forgive me for what has come to pass of my sins and what will come to pass, and what I have hidden and what I have made public. You are Al-Muqaddim and Al-Mu-akhkhir. None has the right to be worshipped except You, You are my Deity, none has the right to be worshipped except You.” (Bukhari)

اللّهُـمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ نـورُ السَّمـواتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَمَنْ فيـهِن ، وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ قَـيِّمُ السَّـمواتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَمَنْ فيـهِن ، [وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ رَبُّ السَّـمواتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَمَنْ فيـهِن] [وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ لَكَ مُلْـكُ السَّـمواتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَمَنْ فيـهِن] [وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ مَلِـكُ السَّـمواتِ وَالأَرْضِ ] [وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ] [أَنْتَ الْحَـقّ وَوَعْـدُكَ الْحَـق ، وَقَوْلُـكَ الْحَـق ، وَلِقـاؤُكَ الْحَـق ، وَالْجَـنَّةُحَـق ، وَالنّـارُ حَـق ، وَالنَّبِـيّونَ حَـق ، وَمـحَمَّدٌ حَـق ، وَالسّـاعَةُحَـق] [اللّهُـمَّ لَكَ أَسْلَمت ، وَعَلَـيْكَ تَوَكَّلْـت ، وَبِكَ آمَنْـت ، وَإِلَـيْكَ أَنَبْـت ، وَبِـكَ خاصَمْت ، وَإِلَـيْكَ حاكَمْـت . فاغْفِـرْ لي مـا قَدَّمْتُ ، وَما أَخَّـرْت ، وَما أَسْـرَرْت ، وَما أَعْلَـنْت ] [أَنْتَ المُقَـدِّمُ وَأَنْتَ المُـؤَخِّر ، لا إِاـهَ إِلاّ أَنْـت] [أَنْـتَ إِلـهي لا إِاـهَ إِلاّ أَنْـت

Chapter 15 – Concerning the athan (the call to prayer)

Fortress of a Muslim.

1 – “Repeat what the Mu’aththin says, except for when he says: Hayya ‘alas-Salaah (hasten to the prayer) and Hayya ‘alal-Falaah (hasten to salvation). Here you should say: Laa hawla wa laa quwwata ‘illaa billaah.
There is no might and no power except by Allah. (Al-Bukhari, Muslim)

لا حَـوْلَ وَلا قُـوَّةَ إِلاّ بِالله

Laa hawla wa laa quwwata ‘illaa billaah.

2-I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no partner, and that Muhammad is His slave and His Messenger. I am pleased with Allah as my Lord, with Muhammad as my Messenger and with Islam as my religion.(2.1) [To be recited in Arabic after the Mu’aththin’s Tashahhud or the words of affirmation of Faith] (2.2)

وَأَنا أَشْـهَدُ أَنْ لا إِلـهَ إِلاّ اللهُ وَحْـدَهُ لا شَـريكَ لَـه ، وَأَنَّ محَمّـداً عَبْـدُهُ وَرَسـولُه ، رَضيـتُ بِاللهِ رَبَّاً ، وَبِمُحَمَّـدٍ رَسـولاً وَبِالإِسْلامِ دينَـاً

Wa ‘anaa ‘ash-hadu ‘an laa ‘ilaaha ‘illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu wa ‘anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa Rasooluhu, radheetu billaahi Rabban, wa bi-Muhammadin Rasoolan wa bil’islaami deenan.

3- “O Allah, Owner of this perfect call and Owner of this prayer to be performed, bestow upon Muhammad al-waseelah and al-fadeelah and send him upon a praised platform which You have promised him. Verily, You never fail in Your promise.”

اللّهُـمَّ رَبَّ هَذِهِ الدّعْـوَةِ التّـامَّة وَالصّلاةِ القَـائِمَة آتِ محَـمَّداً الوَسيـلةَ وَالْفَضـيلَة وَابْعَـثْه مَقـامـاً مَحـموداً الَّذي وَعَـدْتَه [إِنَّـكَ لا تُـخْلِفُ الميـعاد

Allaahumma Rabba haathihid-da ‘watit-taammati wassalaatil-qaa’imati, ‘aati Muhammadanil-waseelata walfadheelata, wab ‘ath-hu maqaamam-mahmoodanil-lathee wa’adtahu, [‘innaka laa tukhliful-mee’aad]

Between the call to prayer and the ‘Iqamah, you should supplicate Allah for yourself. Invocation during this time is not rejected. Read the hadeeth below.

Anas (RA) narrated that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said: ‘A supplication made between the Adhan and Iqama is not rejected.’  [Ahmad, abu Dawud #521, at-Tirmidhi #212, Sahih al-Jami #3408, an-Nasai and Ibn Hibban graded it sahih (sound)]

a)- I seek refuge in Almighty Allah, by His Noble Face, and His eternal authority from the accursed devil. 1 [In the Name of Allah, and blessings.] 2 [And peace be upon the Messenger of Allah.] 3 O Allah, open before me the doors of Your mercy.4
