Supplication At The Start Of The Prayer


 

Supplication Before Stating The Prayer

Recite at least one from the above

اللَّهُـمَّ باَعِـدْ بَيْـنِي وَبَيْنَ خَطَـاياَيَ كَماَ باَعَدْتَ بَيْنَ المَشْرِقِ وَالمَغْرِبْ، اللَّهُـمَّ نَقِّنِـي مِنْ خَطَاياَيَ كَمـَا يُـنَقَّى الثَّـوْبُ الأَبْيَضُ مِنَ الدَّنَسْ، اللَّهُـمَّ اغْسِلْنِـي مِنْ خَطَايـَايَ بِالثَّلـجِ وَالمـَاءِ وَالْبَرَدِ

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.

Al-Bukhari 1/181, Muslim 1/419

سُبْـحَانَكَ اللَّهُـمَّ وَبِحَمْـدِكَ، وَتَبَارَكَ اسْمُـكَ، وَتَعـَالَى جَـدُّكَ وَلَا إِلَهَ غَيْرُكَ

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-Tirmizi, Al-Albani, Sahih At-Tirmizi 1/77, Sahih Ibn Majah 1/135.

وَجَّهْـتُ وَجْهِـيَ لِلَّذِي فَطَرَ السَّمـَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ حَنِـيفاً وَمـَا أَنَا مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِيَن، إِنَّ صَلاَتِـي، وَنُسُكِي، وَمَحْـياَيَ، وَمَمَاتِـي لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ، لَا شَرِيـكَ لَهُ وَبِذَلِكَ أُمِرْتُ وَأَنَا مِنَ الْمُسْلِـمِينَ. اللَّهُـمَّ أَنْتَ الْمَلِكُ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ، أَنْتَ رَبِّـي وَأَنَا عَبْـدُكَ ، ظَلَمْـتُ نَفْسِـي وَاعْـتَرَفْتُ بِذَنْبِـي فَاغْفِرْ لِي ذُنُوبِي جَمِيعاً إِنَّـهُ لَا يَغْـفِرُ الذُّنُوبََ إِلَاَّ أَنْتَ. وَاهْدِنِي لأَحْسَنِ الأَخْلَاقِ لاَ يَهْدِي لأَحْسَـنِهَا إِلاَّ أَنْـتَ، وَاصْـرِفْ عَـنِّي سَيِّئَهَا، لا يَصْرِفُ عَـنِّي سَيِّئَهَـا إِلاَّ أَنْـتَ، لَبَّـيْكَ وَسَعْـدَيْكَ، وَالْخَـيْرُ كُلُّهُ بِيَدَيْكَ، وَالشَّرُّ لَيْـسَ إِلَـيْكَ، أَنَا بِكَ وَإِلَيْـكَ، تَبـَارَكْتَ وَتَعَالَيتَ أَسْتَغْـفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ

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 worshiped 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 1/534.

اللَّهُـمَّ رَبَّ جِبْرَائِيلَ، وَمِيكَائِيلَ، وَإِسْرَافِيلَ، فَاطِـرَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ، عَالِـِمَ الْغَيْبِ وَالشَّهَادَةِ، أَنْتَ تَحْكُمُ بَيْنَ عِبَادِكَ فِيمَا كَانُوا فِيهِ يَخْتَلِفُونَ. اِهْدِنِي لِمَا اخْتُلِفَ فِيهِ مِنَ الْحَقِّ بِإِذْنِكَ، إِنَّكَ تَهْدِي مَنْ تَشَاءُ إِلَى صِرَاطٍ مُسْتَقِيمٍ

O Allah, Lord of Jibraeel, Meekaeel 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 1/534

(1)اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ كَبِيرَا، اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ كَبِيرَا، اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ كَبِيرَا، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ كَثِيرَا، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ كَثِيرَا، وَالْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ كَثِيرَا، وَسُبْحاَنَ اللَّهِ بُكْرَةً وَأَصِيلًا (2)أَعُـوذُ بِاللّهِ مِنَ الشَّـيْطَانِ: مِنْ نَفْخِهِ، وَنَفْـثِهِ، وَهَمـْزِهِ

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. (Three times)(1)I seek refuge in Allah from Satan. From his breath and from his voice and from his whisper.(2)

Abu Dawud, 1/203, Ibn Majah 1/265,Ahmad 4/85. Muslim 1/420.

اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ نُورُ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَمَنْ فِيهِنَّ، وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ قَيِّمُ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَمَنْ فِيهِنَّ، وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ رَبُّ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَمَنْ فِيهِنَّ وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ لَكَ مُلْكُ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَمَنْ فِيهِنَّ وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ مَلِكُ السَّـمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ أَنْتَ الْحَقُّ، وَوَعْـدُكَ الْحَقُّ، وَقَوْلُكَ الْحَقُّ، وَلِقَاؤُكَ الْحَقُّ، وَالْجَنَّةُ حَقٌّ، وَالنَّارُ حَقٌّ، وَالنَّبِيُّونَ حَقُّ، وَمُحَمَّدٌ حَقٌّ، وَالسَّاعَةُ حَقٌّ اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ أَسْلَمْتُ، وَعَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْتُ، وَبِكَ آمَنْـتُ، وَإِلَيْكَ أَنَبْتُ، وَبِكَ خَاصَمْتُ، وَإِلَيْكَ حَاكَمْتُ، فَاغْفِرْ لِي مَا قَدَّمْتُ، وَما أَخَّرْتُ، وَما أَسْـرَرْتُ، وَمَا أَعْلَنْتُ أَنْتَ الْمُقَـدِّمُ، وَأَنْتَ الْمُـؤَخِّرُ، لَا إِاَـهَ إِلَاّ أَنْتَ أَنْتَ إِلَهِي لَا إِاَـهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ

O Allah, praise is to You. You are the Light of the heavens and the earth and all that they contain. Praise is to You, You are the Sustainer of the heavens and the earth and all they contain. Praise is to You, You are the Lord of the heavens and the earth and all they contain. Praise is to You, Yours is dominion of the heavens and the earth and all they contain. Praise is to You, You are the King of the heavens and the earth. And praise is to You. You are the Truth, Your Promise is true, Your Word is true, Your audience is true, Paradise is true, Hell is true, the Prophets are true, and Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) is true, and the Hour of Judgment is true. O Allah, to You I have submitted, and upon You I depend. I have believed in You and to You I turn in repentance. For Your sake I dispute and by Your standard I judge. Forgive me what I have sent before me and what I have left behind me, what I have concealed and what I have declared. You are the One Who sends forth and You are the One Who delays , there is none who has the right to be worshiped but You. You are my God, there is none who has the right to be worshiped but You.

Al-Bukhari, cf. Al-Asqalani, Fathul-bari 3/3, 11/116, 13/371, 423,465. also Muslim for a shorter account, 1/532
