  1. :sl: Duaa/supplication during prayers are not obligatory, they are not part of your salah itself. But our beloved prophet Muhammad :s: used to offer duaa at specific points during salah/prayer. You are standing before Allah during prayer, so its the best time to say your duaa. The best duaa is that which the prophet :s: used to say, although you can say whatever you wish in your own words. You can say duaa in your own language.. actually it is better to say them in your own language so that they come out from your heart. If you want to say the best duaa, here is what prophet Muhammed :s: used to say, and the points in prayer where he used to say them: 1 –After the opening takbeer of the prayer and before starting to recite al-Faatihah. This is called Du’aa’ al-Istiftaah (opening supplication): اللهم باعد بينى وبين خطايايا كما باعدت بين المشرق والمغرب اللهم نقنى من خطايايا كما ينقى الثوب الأبيض من الدنس اللهم إغسلنى من خطايايا بالثلج والماء والبرد Allaahumma baa’id bayni wa bayna khataayaaya kama baa’adta bayna al-mashriqi wa’l-maghrib. Allaahumma naqqini min khataayaaya kama yunaqqa al-thawb al-abyad min al-danas. Allaahumma ighsilni min khataayaaya bi’l-thalji wa’l-maa’i wa’l-barad. Translation: O Allaah, put a great distance between me and my sins, as great as the distance You have made between the East and the West. O Allaah, cleanse me of sin as a white garment is cleansed from filth. O Allaah, wash away my sins with snow and water and hail. 2 – Du’aa’ al-Qunoot (Qunoot, according to the definition of the fuqaha’, “is the name of a du’aa’ (supplication) offered during prayer at a specific point while standing.” It is prescribed in Witr prayer after the rukoo’ (bowing), according to the more correct of the two scholarly opinions. If a calamity (naazilah) befalls the Muslims, it is prescribed to say Du’aa’ al- Qunoot after standing up from rukoo’ in the last rak’ah of each of the five daily obligatory prayers, until Allaah relieves the Muslims of that calamity.) A - in Witr (Witr prayer is performed at night after isha'a (night-time prayer) or before fajr (dawn prayer). According to the Hanafi Fiqh witr prayer is wajib. The status of wajib is very close to that of fard. There are a few distinguishing factors of the witr prayer that sets it apart from the fard (mandatory) and sunnah (recommended) prayers. Witr has an odd number of rakat prayed in pairs, with the final raka'ah prayed separately. Therefore, as little as one rakat can be prayed, and eleven at most.) اللهم إهدنى فيمنهديت وعافنى فيمن عافيت وتولنى فيمن توليت وبارك لى فيما أعطيت وقنى شر ما قضيت فإنك تقضى ولا يقضى عليك وإنه لا يذل من واليت ولا يعز من عاديت تباركت ربنا وتعاليت Allaahumma ihdini feeman hadayta wa ‘aafini feeman ‘aafayta wa tawallani feeman tawallayta wa baarik li feema a’tayta, wa qini sharra ma qadayta , fa innaka taqdi wa la yuqda ‘alayk, wa innahu laa yadhillu man waalayta wa laa ya’izzu man ‘aadayta, tabaarakta Rabbana wa ta’aalayt (O Allaah, guide me among those whom You have guided, pardon me among those whom You have pardoned, turn to me in friendship among those on whom You have turned in friendship, and bless me in what You have bestowed, and save me from the evil of what You have decreed. For verily You decree and none can influence You; and he is not humiliated whom You have befriended, nor is he honoured who is Your enemy. Blessed are You, O Lord, and Exalted). B – Du’aa’ when standing up from bowing, at times of calamity. This is called Qunoot al-Nawaazil. This may be recited in all the obligatory prayers depending on the situation, and the worshippers behind the imam should say Ameen. The imam starts with the same wordings as the duaa in witr above (in plural, using "us" instead of "me" of course), plus wordings appropriate to the situation. 4 – Whilst bowing. سبحانك اللهم ربنا وبحمدك اللهم إغفر لى Subhaanak Allaahumma Rabbanaa wa bi hamdika Allaahumma ighfir li (Glory and praise be to You, O Allaah our Lord. O Allaah, forgive me). 5 – During prostration. This is the best of du’aa’, because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “The closest that any one of you may be to his Lord is when he is prostrating, so say a lot of du’aa’ at that time.” Narrated by Muslim, 482, from the hadeeth of Abu Hurayrah. اللهم لك سجدت وبك آمنت ولك أسلمت سجد وجهى للذى خلقه وصوره وشق سمعه وبصره فتبارك الله احسن الخالقين Allahumma laka sajatu wa bika aamantu wa laka aslamt Sajad wajhi lel'ladhi khalaqahu wa sa'warru wa shaq'qa sam'ahu ,wa basaru fatabarak'Allahu ahsana'l khaleeqeen (O Allaah! For you I have prostrated; in You I have believed; to You I have submitted; [You are my Lord;] my face has prostrated for the One Who created it and shaped it , [shaped it excellently,] then brought forth its hearing and vision: [so] blessed be Allaah, the Best to Create!) 6 – Between the two prostrations. اللهم إغفر لى وارحمنى واجبرنى واهدنى وارزقنى Allaahumma ighfir li warhamni wajburni wahdini warzuqni (O Allaah, forgive me, have mercy on me, enrich me, guide me and grant me provision). 7 – After the tashahhud and before the salaam: اللهم إنى أعوذ بك من عذاب جهنم ومن عذاب القبر ومن فتنة المحيا والممات ومن شر فتنة المسيح الدجال 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 Allaah, I seek refuge with You from the torment of Hell and from the torment of the grave and from the trials of life and death and from the evil of the trial of the Dajjaal). Then after that he may pray for whatever he likes of the good things of this world and the Hereafter, because of the hadeeth of Ibn Mas’ood: The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) taught them the tashahhud then he said at the end: “Let him ask for whatever good things he wishes.” Narrated by al-Bukhaari, 5876; Muslim, 402.

  8. Practical Tajweed Classes

    :sl: I'm pleased to announce that insha'Allah I will run a practical tajweed classroom, for anyone who would like to learn how to recite the Quran with proper tajweed. There are 2 approaches to learning tajweed: 1- studying the rules of tajweed one by one. 2- reading the Quran, verse by verse, with a teacher, and learn what comes up in each word and letter. Insha'Allah I will apply the second method, which is more practical and would require less time to reach a reasonable level of tajweed. Requirements: - (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetgoogle(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/talk/"]Google talk[/url], or (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_get.live(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/messenger/overview"]Windows Live Messenger[/url], or (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetskype(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/intl/en/download/"]Skype[/url] - your choice. - 30~60 min of free time. - mic and headphone/speaker - can read the Quran in Arabic (separate classes can be arranged for those who can't read it in Arabic) - (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetgawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/index.php?act=Msg&CODE=4&MID=1"]PM[/url] me to arrange a schedule for you. It would be great if you have some basic info about the rules of tajweed, but that is not a requirement. These classes are for basic to intermediate level students. Classes can be arranged either for 1 student, or a group. During class, you will need (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetgawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/index.php?showtopic=212357"]this page[/url] as it has the learning materials to be used in class. :sl:

  14. Prayer for my deceased father

    O Allah, forgive her father and have mercy on him and give him strength and pardon him. Be generous to him and cause his entrance to be wide and wash him with water and snow and hail. Cleanse him of his transgressions as white cloth is cleansed of stains. Give him an abode better than his home, and a family better than his family and a wife better than his wife. Take him into Paradise and protect him from the punishment of the grave [and from the punishment of Hell-fire].

  20. How To Pray

    Assalamo alaikum To perform your daily prayers, you first need to learn how to say a few Quran verses in Arabic. Memorizing 2 small chapters is all you need as a new Muslim. 1- In Each rak'aa, we should say the first chapter, called "Al-Fatihah". It consists of only 7 small verses. To memorize it, and understand the meanings as you do, please go here: http://www.allahsqur...arn/#s1d7q1t0p1 Each word has its meaning in English under it, plus you can click at any word to listen to how to say it in Arabic. 2- following Al-Fatihah, we should say a few verses from any other chapter. The best here is chapter 112, called "Al-Ikhlas", which consists of only 4 verses. To memorize it, and understand the meanings as you do, please go here: http://www.allahsqur...n/#s112d7q1t0p1 Each word has its meaning in English under it, plus you can click at any word to listen to how to say it in Arabic. Once you learn how to say those 2 small chapters in Arabic, What's left now is to learn the tashahud. Please go here to learn How to say the tashahud Now you're all set to proceed.

    You only need 3 more posts to get rid of the red newbie sign.
  22. Hello Sergio and welcome to the forum Only English and Arabic is used in this forum, but you can find a section for Spanish in the other languages section. I tried to read the main Arabic text but I couldn't. Its written in a strange font. But perhaps other members can help. Here is a translation of your comment: Hello everyone, it is my first comment here and I have registered to know a little more about the Islamic culture and religion that in my opinion has many interesting things to admire. Today I was in the Alhambra and was disappointed. I was raised with Christian values and in fact forced to do the first two sacraments, although I currently do not practice any religion. Seeing so much beauty built in the Alhambra, I casually took a single photo of one of the many phrases of the Coran (or poem by one of the architects, I do not know) that are sculpted on the walls of the Nazari palaces and I wanted to know what is translated into Spanish . I leave the image and I thank whoever gives me the answer. Alhambra Image, text. A greeting.
  23. Assalamo alaikum sister Welcome to the forum, and more importantly, welcome to Islam. It seems that your friend is not the best source to learn Islam from. No one is perfect. That is why you need to separate between Islam and Muslims, specially today's Muslims. You did right to come to this forum for guidance, We can help you with any questions you may have regarding the beautiful religion of Islam.
