Dua at the start of Salat

One should start performing Salat saying “Allahu Akbar” followed by any of the following supplications:

  • Sub’hanakAllahumma, wa be’hamdeka wa tabarakasmuka, wa ta’ala jaddoka wa la ilaha ghairuka.

«سُبْحَانَكَ اللهُمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ، وتَبَارَكَ اسْمُكَ، وَتَعَالَى جَدُّكَ، وَلَا إِلَهَ غَيْرُكَ»

Translation:

Glory and praise be to You, O Allah. Blessed be Your name and exalted be Your majesty, there is none worthy of worship except You. (Abu Dawood, Tirmizi)

  • Allahumma ba’id baini wa baina khatayaya kama ba’adta bainal mashreqe wal maghrebe. Allahumma naqqeni minal khataya kama yunaqqas saubul abyadhu menad danase. Allahumaghsil khatayaya bilmaye was salje walbarad.

«اللَّهُمَّ بَاعِدْ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَ خَطَايَايَ، كَمَا بَاعَدْتَ بَيْنَ المَشْرِقِ وَالمَغْرِبِ، اللَّهُمَّ نَقِّنِي مِنَ الخَطَايَا كَمَا يُنَقَّى الثَّوْبُ الأَبْيَضُ مِنَ الدَّنَسِ، اللَّهُمَّ اغْسِلْ خَطَايَايَ بِالْمَاءِ وَالثَّلْجِ وَالبَرَدِ»

Translation: O Allah! Set me apart from my sins (faults) as the East and West are set apart from each other and clean me from sins as a white garment is cleaned of dirt (after thorough washing). O Allah! Wash off my sins with water, snow and hail. (Bukhari, Muslim).

  • Innee wajjahtu wajheya lillazi fataras samawate wal ardha hanifan wa ma ana menal mushrekeen. Inna salati, wa nosoki, wa mahyaya wa mamati lillahe Rabbil aalameen, la shareeka lahu, wa bezaleka umirtu wa ana minal Muslimeen. Allahumma Antal Maleku la ilaha illa anta rabbi, wa ana abduka, zalamto nafsi, wa tarafto bezanbi, faghfirlee zanoobi jamee’a, innahu la yaghferu zunubo illa Anta, wahdeni li’ahsanil akhlaqe , la yahdi le’ahsaneha illa Anta, wasrif anni sayyi’aha, la yasrif anni sayyiaha illa Ant. Labbaika wa sa’daika, wal khairu kulluhu fi yadaik, wash sharru laisa ilaika, ana beka wa ilaika, tabarakta wa ta’aalait, astaghferuka wa atubo ilaik.

«إني وَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِيَ لِلَّذِي فَطَرَ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضَ حَنِيفًا وَّمَا أَنَا مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ، إِنَّ صَلَاتِي، وَنُسُكِي، وَمَحْيَايَ، وَمَمَاتِي لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ، لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، وَبِذَلِكَ أُمِرْتُ وَأَنَا مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ، اللهُمَّ أَنْتَ الْمَلِكُ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ أَنْتَ رَبِّي، وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ، ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِي، وَاعْتَرَفْتُ بِذَنْبِي، فَاغْفِرْ لِي ذُنُوبِي جَمِيعًا، إِنَّهُ لَا يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلَّا أَنْتَ، وَاهْدِنِي لِأَحْسَنِ الْأَخْلَاقِ لَا يَهْدِي لِأَحْسَنِهَا إِلَّا أَنْتَ، وَاصْرِفْ عَنِّي سَيِّئَهَا لَا يَصْرِفُ عَنِّي سَيِّئَهَا إِلَّا أَنْتَ، لَبَّيْكَ وَسَعْدَيْكَ وَالْخَيْرُ كُلُّهُ فِي يَدَيْكَ، وَالشَّرُّ لَيْسَ إِلَيْكَ، أَنَا بِكَ وَإِلَيْكَ، تَبَارَكْتَ وَتَعَالَيْتَ، أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ»

Translation of Meaning: Verily, I have turned my face toward Him who created the Heavens and the Earth hanifa (worhsipping none but Allah Alone), and I am not of the idolaters. Verily, my salah, my sacrifice, my living, and my dying are for Allah, the Lord of the all that exists. He has no partner. And of this I have been commanded, and I am one of the Muslims. O Allah, You are the Sovereign and there is none worthy of worship but You. I am Your slave, I have wronged myself and I acknowledge my sin. Forgive me all my sins for no one forgives sins but You. Guide me to the best of manners for none can guide to the best of them but You. Protect me from bad manners for none can protect against them but You. I am at Your service, all goodness is in Your hands, and evil is not attributed to You. I rely on You and turn to You, blessed and exalted are You, I seek Your forgiveness and repent to You. (Muslim).
