Fajr Salaah

Before the Fardh of Fajr Salaah, read two rakaats Sunnat, reading Surah Inshirah in the first Rakaat and Surah Feel in the second rakaat.

The Holy Prophet S.A.W has stated that the performance of this Sunnah is greater in reward than the entire world. The same Sunnah is also a cure for different sicknesses, especially piles, boils, abscess, provided it is perfformed regulary. It is reported that if one reads Surah Kafiroon in the first rakaat and Surah Ikhlaas in the second rakaat, one would noy see any form of unlawful thing's in one house. Note that our Nabi S.A.W performed only these two rakaats of Sunnah before Fajr, not even Nafl or Salaat Tahiyatul Musjid or even Tahiyatul Wudhu. No Nafl was read even after Fard of Fajr until sunrise.

Thereafter recite 7 times:


"A’dada Maa A’limal Lawhu, Zinatta Ma A’limal Lawhu, Mil-A Ma Alimal Lawhu, Tabarr Ra’tu Min Haulee Wa Quwwatti, Wa Al Ja’atu Ila Haulil Laahi Wa Quwattihi Fi Jami-ee Umooree."

"By Allah’s infinite knowledge, by Allah’s weight of knowledge, by the quantity of Allah’s Knowledge, I release myself from my power and my strength, and I turn to Allah’s power and Allah’s strength in all my affairs."

Thereafter recite 7 times:


"Allahumagh Firlee Wa Li Waalidayya Wa Lima Tawaalada War Humhumaa Kama Rabbayaani Sagheera, Wagh Firil Lawhumma Li Jamee-il Mu’mineena Wal Mu’minaat, Wal Muslimeena Wal Muslimaat, Al Ahyaa-I Minhum Wal Amwaati, Bi Rahmatika Ya Arhamar Rahwhimeen."

"‘O Allah, forgive me and my parents, and all parents, and have mercy on them just like they had mercy whilst raising me when I was small, O’ Allah and forgive All the Believing Men and All the Believing Woman, and the Muslim Men and the Muslim Woman, those whom are alive, and also those whom have passed on, (Forgive them) by Your Mercy, O’ Most Merciful of those who have Mercy."

Thereafter recite 7 times:


"Allahuma Rab Bif A'la Bi Wa Bi A'jilan Wa Aajilan Fid Deeni Wad Dunya Wal Aakhirati, Ma Anta Lahu Ahlun, Wa La Taf A'l Bina Ya Moulana, Ma Nahnu Lahu Ahlun, Innaka Ghafoorun, Haleemun, Jawaadun, Kareemun, Malikun, Barrun, Rabbun, Raoofur Raheem".

“O Allah, Do with me and do with them, immediately or later, for our Deen and Dunya that which you are worthy of, Our Master don’t do to us that which we are deserving of, Indeed You are Oft Forgiving, Most Compassionate, Most Generous, Most Honourable, The Sovereign, Kind, Lord, Most Gracious in Mercy."

Thereafter recite 6 times:


"Allahuma Ahyeeni Muhiban Laka, Wa Amitnee Muhiban Laka, Wa Ahshurni Tahta Aqdaam Ki laabi Ahbaa ika."

“O’ Allah, Awaken me with love for you, and put me to rest with love for you, and give rise to me whilst I take my shelter under the feet of those whom you love.”

Recite 3 times:


"SubhanAllahil A’liyid Dayaan, SubhanAllahil Hannaanil Mannaani, SubhaanAllahish Shadeedil Arkaani, SubhanAllahil Musabah fi kuli
Makanin, Subhaana Man la Yashguluhu Sha’nan a’n Sha’nin, Subhanah man Yadh-habu Bil Lail Wa Ya’ti bin Nahar."

“Praised is He, the Elevated, The Judge, Praised is He the Affectionate, The Benefactor, Praised is He Who is relentless in His Support, Praised is He who’s Tasbeeh is done everywhere, praised is He who is not distracted from one happening because of another happening, Praise is He who alternates and brings the day after the night.”

And thereafter Read 41 times:

Another way of performing this four rakaats is; after reciting Surah Fateha in the first Rakaat recite Surah Al Asar four times, in the second rakaat three times, and in the third and fourth, recite it twice and once respectively. If the time for Asar Salaah is short, then instead of performing four Rakaats, one can perform two rakaats, reciting five times Surah Al Asar in the first and the second Rakaat respectively.

After these two Sunnah'Also perform two Rakaats of Namaaz called Saa'dathud Daarain (Eternal Success in both the worlds).

Immediately after this, he used to recite 301 I "Ya Allahu" It is also recommended that after Esha Namaaz one should read Surah Mulk.

Tahajjud Namaaz

This Salaah can be read upto a maximum of 12 rakaats. The procedure for performing Tahajud is as follows. In the first rakaat after Surah Fateha read Ayatul Kursi till Khalidoon accompanied with 3 times Surah Ikhlaas.
In the second rakaat, read Amanar Rasool till the end accompanied by 3 times Surah Ikhlaas. This is the first way one can recite all the twelve rakaats.

The second way is to recite 12 times Surah Ikhlaas in the first rakaat, and in every rakaat thereafter to reduce the Surah Ikhlaas by one. Until the last rakaat when there will be only one Surah Ikhlaas recited.

The third way is to recite 5 times Surah Ikhlaas after Surah Fateha, and after the Surah Ikhlaas, recite one Ruku of Surah Yusuf. Surah Yusuf has twelve ruku’s, and in the 12 rakaats the entire Surah Yusuf will be recited completely. According to various Ahadith and narrations, this Salaah is the best of all the Nafil and Voluntary Salaah. After the completion of this
Salaah, read 100 times Surah Alam Nashrah, 100 times, Ya Hayyu Ya Qayyoom and thereafter read 100 times the following Dua:


"Lillahi Mulkus Samawaati Wal Ardi Wa ma Feehinna, wa Huwa A’la Kulli Shayin Qadeer, Astaghfirullah Rabbi min kulli Dhanbin wa Khatee-atin wa Atubu ilaih, Wa As-aluhut taubah."

Thereafter recite 100 times 'Astaghfirulla' Some Mashaaikh have stated one should stay awake in the first part of the night until midnight, and then sleep till Fajr Namaaz so that the daily routine (Of Ibadah) may not be affected by the lack of sleep. Some have slept in the first half of the night and stayed awake for the remaining half so that they could perform their Ibadaath.

Hazrath Sheikh Saifudeen Kharzi R.A use to stay awake in the third part of the night, and he should then perform his Esha Salaah in Jamaat and stay awake till fajr Namaaz. Hazrath Khwaja Qutbuddin Bakhtiyaar Kaki R.A had continued this practise. Some of the pious people have remained with the wudhu they have made for Esha Namaaz till Fajr Namaaz. Sayedina Imam Abu Hanifa R.A, Sayidena Saeed Ibn Museeb R.A, Hazrath Khwaja Fuzail Bin Ayadh R.A. Our illustrious leader Hazrath Khwaja Sulaiman Tawsawi R.A and Hazrath Khwaja Muhammed Ali Shah R.A all took a rest, sleep or siesta between Esha and Tahajud Salaaah.

After the sighting of the moon of Safar, one should read this Dua three times:

"Allahumma Farijna Bi Dhukhoolis Safari, Wakhtimhu Bil Khairi Waz Zafari Was Rif Anni Wa An Jami Il Muslimeena Sharrahu."

"O’ Allah grant us relief when the month of Safar enters unto us, and conclude it with good and success, and protect me and all the Muslims from the Evil in this month."

On the first night of Safar

Make Dua for oneself and for all the Muslims. Thereafter read four rakaats of Salaah between the Fard of Esha and Witr. In the First rakaat, after Surah Fateha read Surah Al Kafirroon 11 times, in the second rakaat after Surah Fateha read Surah Ikhlaas 11 times. In the third and fourth rakaat respectively after Surah Fateha recite Surah Falaq and Surah Naas 11 times each respectively. Thereafter read 70 times the third Kalima and seventy times the fourth verse of Surah Fateha.


This should be followed by Durood Shareef 10 times and read this Dua once: "Allahuma Inni A’oozubika min Shari Hadthas Shahri, Wa Min Shari Kulli Baliyatin wa Shidatinil Lati Qadarta Feehi, Ya Dahru, Ya Dayhooru, Ya Dayhaaru, Ya Azalu, Ya Abadu, Ya Kaa-inu, Ya Kaynaanu, Ya Kaynoonu, Ya Mubdi-oo, Ya Mueedu, Ya Dhal Arshil Majeedi Anta Taf-a’lu Ma Tureedu; Allahummah Ris Bi A’ynikal Latee Laa Tanaamu Nafsi, Wa Ahli, Wa Maali, Wa Waladi, Wa Deeni, Wa Dunyaayal Latee Ibtalaytani Bi

Suhbatiha Bi Hurmatil Abraar Wal Akhyaar, Bi Rahmatika Ya ARhamar Raahimeen."

"O’ Allah, Indeed I seek protection in You, from the evil that descends in this month, from all the evil calamities and difficulties that You have destined in it,Ya Dahru, Ya Dayhuroo, Ya Dayhaaroo Ya Azalu, Ya Abadoo, Ya Kaainu, Ya Kaynaanu, Ya Kaynoonu, Ya Mubdioo, Ya

By reciting the Dua below, Allah will keep away 70000 Balaas (calamities) and Fitnas (tribulations) away from ones home. The Dua is;

"Allahuma Ya Shadeedal Quwa, Wa Ya Shadeedal Mihaal, Ya A’zeezu, Dhalat Bi I’zatika Jamee-u’ Ma Khalaqta, Fakfini A’n Sharri Jamee-I’

Khalqika, Ya Muhsinu, Ya Mujmilu, Ya Mufadhilu, Ya Muni’mu, Ya Mukrimu, Ya Lailaha Illa Anta Subhaanaka Inni Kuntu Minaz Zaalimeen,

Fastajabnaalahu, Wa Najaynaahu Minal Ghami, Wa Ka Dhalika Nunjil Mu’mineen Bi Rahmatika Ya Arhamar Raahimeen."

If one has to write out this Dua and hang it on the wall in ones house, one will stay in peace and 1000 barakaat and blessings will appear in one’s home.

In the month of Safar, everyday after every Salaah, it is requested that we read the following Dua, and seek protection for ourselves and our family from all forms of trials and calamities, the dua is as follows:

"A’oozu billahi min share haadthas Zamaani, wa as-ta-eezu bihi min shurooril azmaani, a’oozu bi jalaali wajhika wa kamaali qudratika an

Tujeerani fi haadthihis sanati wa qini sharra ma qadayta feeha, wakrimni fi hadhas Safari bi-akramin nazari, wakhtimli bis salaamati, was

anta Khairur Raahimeen."

"I seek refuge in Allah from the evil of this age, and I seek protection in his refuge from the evils of all times. I seek refuge in the Majesty of Your Countenance and the perfection of Your Power, to grant me protection during this year and save me from the evil that You have decreed to take place in it; and honour me at this time when I have nothing with focusing Your honourable gaze on me. And let me end my life with peace and happiness, and for the people of my household, my children and my relatives, and for the entire Ummah of Sayyidunaa Muhammad SAW. Oh Lord! Forgive and have mercy, for You are the Most Merciful of those who have mercy."

On the last Wednesday of Safar, after sunrise perform ghusl and read two rakaats of Salaate Chaast, in the first rakaat after Surah Fateha read the following Quranic Verses,


"Qulil laahumma Maalikal Mulki Ta’til Mulka Man Tashaa-u Wa Tanzi-ul Mulka Miman Tashaa, Wa Tuizzu Man Tashaa-u Wa Tuzilu Man Tashaa-u Biyadikal Khairu Innaka A’la Kuli Shay-in Qadeer. Tulijul Layla Fin Nahaari Wa Tulijun Nahara Fil Layl, Wa Tukhrijul Hayya Minal Mayyiti

Wa Tukhrijul Mayita Minal Hayyi, Wa Tarzuqoo Man Tashaa-u Bi Ghairi Hisaab."

"Say! O’ Muhammed S.A.W , O’ Allah, Lord of Power and rule, You give Power to whom You wish, and You seize Power from whom You wish,

You grant honour to whom You wish and You Humiliate Whom You Wish, In Your Hand is all good, Indeed Thou Has Power over everything.

You cause the alternation of Night to Day, and You cause the alternation of Day to Night, and You bring the Dead from the Living, and You Bring the Living from the Dead, And You grant Sustenance to whom You Wish, with Measuring (And Accountability)."

In the second rakaat after Surah Fateha also read:

"Qulid Ullah Awid Ur Rahmaan, Ayamma Tada’oo FalaHul Asma-Ul Husnaa, Wa La Tajhar Bi Salaatika Wa La Tukhafit Biha, Wabtaghi Bayn

Dhalika Sabeela. Wa Qulil Hamdu Lillahil Ladhi Lam YathaKhiz Waladau, Wa Lam Yakun Lahu Shareekun Fil Mulki, Wa Lam Ya Khun Lahu Waliyum Minazulli Wa Kab Birhu Takbeera."


"Say! (O Muhammed S.A.W, Call Him Allah, Or Call Him Rahmaan, By whatever name You call Him, Whatever You call him by, HE has the Most beautiful Names, Do Not Perform Your Prayers Loud, nor too silently, but seek a middle course between them. Say! O’ Muhammed S.A.W, Praise is to Allah, Who begets no Son, and has no Partner in His Kingdom, And He does not need anyone to protect him from humiliation, and Glorify Him for His Greatness and Glory."


After the salaam read Durood Shareef and make the following Dua:

"Allahumas Rif A’nni Sharra Haadhal Yaum, Wa’ Simni Min Shaumihi Wa Jannibni A’mma Yukhaafu Feehi Min Nahoosaatihi Wa Karamaatihi, Bi

Fadlika Ya Daafi-a’s Suroori Wa Ya MAalikan Nushoori Bi Rahmatika Ya Arhamar Raahimeen, Wa SalAllahu Ta-a’la A’la Muhammadin Nabiyil

Ummiyi Wa Aalihi Wa Baarik Wa Sallam."


One can also read four rakaats on the last Wednesday of Safar. In every rakaat read 70 times Surah Khauthar and 5 times Surah Ikhlaas, after completing the Salaam read the following Dua;

"Allahuma Ya Shadeedal Quwa, Ya Shadeedal Mihaali, Ya A’zeezu, Dhalat Bi I’zatik Jamee’u Khalqika, Ikfini A’n Jamee’ Khalqika, Ya Mujmilu, Ya

Mufadilu, Ya Muni’mu, Ya Mukrimu, Ya La Ilaaha Illa Anta, Bi Rahmatika Ya Arhamr Raahimeen."


"Allahuma Lakal Hamdu,wa lakal Mannu fadlan, wa ana abduka riqqan, wa anta lidhalika ahlan, Astaudiooka nafsee, wa deeni, wa dunyaaya, wa khwaateema u’mri, Wa A’mali, wa Astaudiuka ardi, wa izzati, fi khalqika min fadhlika, wa astaudi-u’ka man aamana bika min I’baadika, wa nabiyyika, muhammadin alaihis salaatu was Salaamu, li shidati haulika, wa battashika, wa quwwatika, fa-inna mustau-di-u’ka bi dhamaanin , wa hilmika naa-fizun, wa qadaaika ghalibun, wa anta a’la Kulli shay’in Qadeer, Ya Ahkamal Haakimeen, way a Asra’al Haasibeena, way a

"Oh Allah! To You belongs all praise in gratitude and all favours in blessing, and I am Your enslaved servant and You are Most Worthy of

that. I leave in Your protection myself, my religion, my worldly life and the concluding actions of mine and the end of my life. I leave in Your protection my honour and my position amongst Your creation through Your bounty; and I leave in Your protection all those who believe in You and Your Noble Prophet Muhammad S.A.W, for the greatness of Your Omnipotence, Your Power and Your Strength. Verily, the one who leaves everything to You in guaranteed protection, Your forbearance encompasses everything, Your decree is final and You have power over all things. O’ Best Judge of those who judge, O’ Most Swift of those who hold accountable, O’ Most Honourable One Who is sought and Most Generous One Who is asked; O’ Ever Living, Oh Self Sufficient, O’ Eternal Being, O’ Unique One, O’ All Powerful, O’ One, O’ Omnipotent, O’ One Who was not conceived nor does he conceive, and none is like unto Him, O’ Mighty One, O’ One Who grants everything, with Your mercy O’ Most Merciful of those who have mercy. And May Allah send salutations upon Sayyidunaa Muhammad S.A.W, the Seal of Divine Emissaries, and upon his pure and righteous family."

"Allahamu Antal Abadul Qadeemu, Wa Hadithi Sanatun Jadeedatun, As Aluka Feehal I’smata Minash Shaitaanir Rajeem, Wa Min Kulli Dhi
Sharrin, Wa Minal Balaaya Wal Aafaati, Wa As Alukal A’una Wal A’dla A’la Hadithi Hin Nafsil Amaarati Bi Soo-ee, Wal Ishtighaala Bima
Yuqaribuni Ilayka, Ya Barrun, Ya Raheemun, Ya Dhal Jalaali Wal Ikraami."

Thereafter read Once:


"Al hamdullilahil Ladhi Dhala Kulla Shay-in Bi Azmatihi, Wal Hamdullilahil Ladhi Istaslama Kulla Shay-in Bi Qudratihi, As-Aluhu Bi-Azmatihi, Wa Izzatihi, Wa Mulkihi, Wa Qudratihi, Fi Haadhi Hiss Sanatil Jadeedati, Al Amana Wal Amaana Wal Aafiyata Wal Ghufraana Wa
Ishmata Minash Shaytaan.

"All praise is to Allah who overwhelms everything by His greatness, and all Praise is to Allah who by His Greatness everything becomes submissive. I ask Him by His greatness, by His honour, by His ownership and by His power, that in this new year He grants me safety and security, compassion and forgiveness, and protection from Satan."

Any person who recites this Dua 12 times and blows (makes Dum) on water and places this water or washes his body with this water, he will be safeguarded from any unpleasant or strained relationships, and during these hardships and inconvenience, Allah S.W.T. will keep one away from enmity and hardship and protect him from all sickness and hardships. The Dua is as follows:


"SubhannAllahi Mil-al Meezani, Wa Muntahal Ilmi, Wa Mablagar Ridaw, Wa Zeenatal Arshi, La Maljaa, Wa La Manjaa,MinAllahi Illa Ilayhi, Wa La Haula Wa La Quwata Illa Billahil Aliyil Azeem."

Also Allah Ta-Ala will keep the Hellfire away from the person who recites this Dua 100 times. The following Dua should be read daily, in the morning and evening during the month of Muharram,


"There is no one worthy of worship but Allah alone, He has no partner, to Him belongs all dominion and praise, He gives life and causes death; He is All-Living and does not die, One of Majesty and Honour, in His Hand is all good; and He has power over all things. Oh Allah! There is no one to prevent what You give, and no one to give what You prevent; no one to return what You have decreed; and no one of good fortune can cause benefit, from You comes all good fortune."


The third importance: The Night of Ashura

It is Makrooh to fast only one day for the 10th or the Day of Ashura. Fasts
must be kept on the 9th and the 10th of Muharram or the 10th and 11th of Muharram. It is the practice of the Jews to fast only one day, and that is the 10th.

On the day of Ashura, when the sun reaches a certain height one should read 2 rakaats of Nafil Salaah reading in the first rakaat after Surah Fateha Ayatul Kursi followed by the last verses of Surah Al Hashr, (Lo Anzalna) in the second rakaat.

"Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem, Ya Awalul Awaleen Wa Ya Akhirul Aakhireena, La Ilaha Illa Anta, Khalaqta Awwala Ma Khalaqta Fi Hadthal
Yaumi, Wa Takhluqu Aakhira Ma Takhluqu Fi Hadthal Yaumi, A’Thini Feehi Khaira Ma A’thaytahu Anbiya-aka Wa Asfiyaa-aka Min Thawabil
Balaaya Wa Ma Ashum tahum Feehi Minal Karaamati, Bi Hurmati Muhammadin Salalawhu Alaihi Wa Sallam."

“In the name of Allah, The Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful, O’ the First of all the firsts, O’ Last of all Lasts, There is none worthy of worship besides You, You are the creator of all the things first on this day, and You will create all the things last on this day, Grant me on this day the best of that which You granted on this day to Your prophets and Your chosen ones, from the infinite reward, (grant me) from that which You allocated and gave to them of honor, (I ask you this) by the sacredness of Sayedina Muhammed S.A.W.”

After the recitation of this Dua, whatever the reciter will ask for, Insha Allah, Allah will accept it and grant it to Him.

Kafaytahu, Waq Taraba Minka Fa Adnaytahu, Allahuma Inni AsAlukal Imaana Bika, Wa AsAlukal Fadla Min Nar Rizqi, Wa AsAluka Husnal
Aaqibati Fid Dunya Wal Aakhirati Ya Zal Jalaali Wal Ikraami."

“O’ Allah, Make me of those You answer when I call unto You, and Make me of those You guide when I brought Imaan in You, Make me of those You give too when I desire You, Make me of those You Protect when I placed my trust in You, Make me of those You bring closer when I approach You, O’ Allah, Indeed I ask You to increase my Imaan in You, I Ask You to give me surplus in my Sustenance, I ask You to grant me a good finale in this World and in the Hereafter, O’ You The Exalted, The Honorable!”

"Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem, Inni As-Aluka Bi Joodika Wa Karamika, Wa A’aoozu bika Minal Faza’I Fil Quboor, Bi Rahmatika Ya Arhamar
Raahimeen, InnAllaha Yumsikus Samaawati Wal Arada An Tazula, Wa La In Zaalata In Amsakahuma Min Ba’adihi, Innahu Kaana Haleeman

“In the name of Allah, The Beneficent, The Most Merciful, indeed I ask You by Your Generosity and Your Honor, and indeed I seek protection in You from the fear of the grave, by Your Mercy, O’ You Most Merciful of those who have mercy. Indeed it is Allah, that holds the heavens and the earths from falling, and if they had to fall, who else besides Him will be able to hold them after Him, Indeed He is Most Kind, Most Merciful.”
