Dua while performing Sayi

Prior to starting Sa’i one should recite this supplication:

«إِنَّ الصَّفَا والْمَرْوَةَ مِنْ شَعَائِرِ اللهِ, أَبْدَأُ بِمَا بَدَأَ اللهُ بِهِ»  (مسلم)

Innas safa wal marwata min sha’aaerillah, abda’u bema bada’Allahu bih.



“Indeed Al-Safa and Al-Marwah are from the places of worship of Allah…” “I begin with what Allah began with.” (Muslim)

In each round of Sa’i between Safa and Marwah one should pray facing the Holy Ka’abah praising and glorifying Allah Ta’ala. One should first say “Allahu Akbar” three times followed by this supplication:

«لاَ إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ المُلْكُ وَلَهُ الحَمْدُ، وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ، لاَ إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ , أَنْجَزَ وَعْدَهُ، وَنَصَرَ عَبْدَهُ، وَهَزَمَ الأَحْزَابَ وَحْدَهُ»

La ilaha illallahu Wahdahu la shareeka Lahu, Lahul mulko wa Lahul hamdo wa Huwa ala kulle shai’in Qadeer, La ilaha illallahu Wahdahu, anjaza wa’dahu wa nasara abdahu wa hazamal ahzaba Wahdahoo.

Translation: “None has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone, without partner. To Him belongs all sovereignty and praise, and He is over all things omnipotent. We return, repent, worship and praise our Lord. Allah fulfilled His promise, aided His Servant, and single-handedly defeated the allies.” (Muslim)

No specific supplication has been reported while performing Sa’i between Safa and Marwah. However, some of the Prophet’s companions; Hadhrat Ali, Hadhrat Abdullah bin Umar and Hadhrat Abdullah bin Mas’ood RadhiAllahu Anhum used to recite this supplication:

Rabbighfir warham wa Antal A’azzul Akram.

“رَبِّ اغْفِرْ وَارْحَمْ وَأَنْتَ الْأَعَزُّ الْأَكْرَمُ ”  (مصنف ابن أبي شيبة).

Translation: O Allah! forgive me and have mercy on me. You are the Almighty and Generous. (Musannaf Ibne Abi Shaibah)

Besides the above one can recite from among the supplications contained in the Holy Quran and Sunnah as one pleases.
