Bismillah-hir Rahman-nir Raheem (in the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

Dua recited for the Prophet’s pbuh Intercession on Judgement Day:

The dua is recommended to be recited after hearing the Adhaan and after replying to the call of the Mu’aththin.

Allahumma 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]

O Allah, Lord of this perfect call and established prayer. Grant Muhammad the intercession and favour, and raise him to the honoured station You Have Promised him. [Verily You Do Not Neglect promises]

This is from Sahih Bukhari. The additional wording in brackets is from Al-Bayhaqi


Dua to be recited on entering the Masjid

A’oothu billahil-‘Adheem, wa bi-Wajhihil-Kareem, wa Sultaanihil-qadeem, minash-Shaytaanir-rajeem. [Bismillahi, wassalaatu.] [Wassalaamtu alaa Rasoolilaahi.] Allaahum-maftah lee ‘abwaaba rahmatika.

I seek refuge in Almighty Allah, by His Noble Face, by His Primordial Power, from Satan the outcast. [In the Name of Allah, and blessings.] [And peace be upon the Messenger of Allah.] Oh Allah, open before me the Doors of Your Mercy.

This is from Abu Dawud, Ibn As-Sunni and Muslim


Dua to be recited on leaving the Masjid

Bismillahi, wassalaatu wassalaamtu alaa Rasoolilaahi,  Allaahumma ‘innee ‘as’aluka min fadhlika, Allahumma’simnee minash-Shaytaanir-rajeem.

In the Name of Allah, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah. Oh Allah, I ask for Your Favour, Oh Allah Protect me from Satan the outcast.

This is from Abu Dawud, Ibn As-Sunni and Muslim


What to say whilst the Adhaan is being called

When you are listening to the Adhaan being called at the time of prayer, you should repeat it to yourself.

When the Mu’aththin says “Hayya alas-Salaah”, or “Hayya alal-falaah”, instead of repeating this, you should say “La hawla wa laa quwwatta illa billah” (which means “There is no Might and no Power except by Allah”)

This is from Bukhari and Muslim
