Before you begin with the recitation (qir�'ah: reciting certain Qur'�nic chapters in the prayers), you may say the statement of seeking protection (isti`�dhah) in a low tone:

اعُوذُ بِٱللَّهِ مِنَ ٱلشَّيْطَانِ ٱلرَّجِيمِ

a`�dhu bill�hi min alshshay��ni alrraj�mi

I pray Allah�s protection from Satan, the accursed.

You may then recite S�rah al-F�ti�ah (No. 1) observing all etiquettes, having your heart present, and pondering while that is as much as one breath. Then, you may recite any S�rah of the Holy Qur'�n, although it is advisable to recite such S�rahs as S�rah al-Naba' (No. 78), S�rah al-Ins�n (or al-Dahr, No. 76), or S�rah al-Qiy�mah (No. 75).

Upon finishing reciting the second S�rah, you may also pause for a while that is as much as one breath. You may then raise your hands up to the lower part of your ears while uttering the Takb�r statement. You may then genuflect, putting your right hand on your right knee and then your left hand on your left knee, opening up your fingers as if you are holding fast to your knees. You may also bow your back and stretch your neck at the level of your back, casting your sight on the space between your two feet and saying the following:

سُبْحَانَ رَبِّيَ ٱلْعَظِيمِ وَبِحَمْدِهِ

sub��na rabbiya al`a��mi wa bi�amdih�

All glory be to my Lord, the All-great, and in praise of Him.

It is highly advisable to repeat this statement seven, five, or three times. Before that, you may have said the following:

اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ رَكَعْتُ

all�humma laka raka`tu

O Allah, to You alone have I genuflected,

وَلَكَ اسْلَمْتُ

wa laka aslamtu

to You alone have I submitted,

وَبِكَ آمَنْتُ

wa bika �mantu

in You have I believed,

وَعَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْتُ

wa `alayka tawakkaltu

and in You have I put my trust.

وَانْتَ رَبِّي

wa anta rabb�

And You are my Lord.

خَشَعَ لَكَ سَمْعِي وَبَصَرِي

khasha`a laka sam`� wa ba�ar�

Revering to You are my hearing, my sight,

وَشَعْرِي وَبَشَرِي

wa sha`r� wa bashar�

my hair, my skin,

وَلَحْمِي وَدَمِي

wa la�m� wa dam�

my flesh, my blood,

وَمُخِّي وَعَصَبِي وَعِظَامِي

wa mukhkh� wa `a�ab� wa `i��m�

my brain, my nerve, my bones,

وَمَا اقَلَّتْهُ قَدَمَايَ

wa m� aqallat-hu qadam�ya

and whatever is borne by my two feet.

غَيْرَ مُسْتَنْكِفٍ وَلاَ مُسْتَكْبِرٍ وَلاَ مُسْتَحْسِرٍ

ghayra mustankifin wa l� mustakbirin wa l� musta�sirin

I am neither disdaining, nor arrogant, nor regretful.

You may now raise your head from genuflection, stand erect, and say the following:

سَمِعَ ٱللَّهُ لِمَنْ حَمِدَهُ

sami`a all�hu liman �amidah�

May Allah listen to him who praises Him.

You may then utter a Takb�r statement and fall down for prostration with full submission and reverence. You may stretch your palms and put them on the ground before you put your knees on the ground. You may prostrate on a prostration-clay made of the soil taken from Imam al-�usayn�s tomb. While prostrating yourself, you should utter the statement of prostration once although it is favorable to repeat it seven, five, or three times. Before that, you may have said the following:

اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ سَجَدْتُ

all�humma laka sajadtu

O Allah, to You (alone) do I prostrate,

وَبِكَ آمَنْتُ

wa bika �mantu

in You do I have faith,

وَلَكَ اسْلَمْتُ

wa laka aslamtu

to You do I submit,

وَعَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْتُ

wa `alayka tawakkaltu

in You do I put trust,

وَانْتَ رَبِّي

wa anta rabb�

and You are my Lord.

سَجَدَ وَجْهِي لِلَّذِي خَلَقَهُ

sajada wajh� lill�dh� khalaqah�

My face is prostrating the One Who has created it

وَشَقَّ سَمْعَهُ وَبَصَرَهُ

wa shaqqa sam`ah� wa ba�arah�

and split its hearing and sight.

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلْعَالَمِينَ

al�amdu lill�hi rabbi al`�lam�na

All praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.

تَبَارَكَ ٱللَّهُ احْسَنُ ٱلْخَالِقِينَ

tab�raka all�hu a�sanu alkh�liq�na

Blessed be Allah, the most excellent of all creators.

You may now say the prostration statement. Then, you may raise your head from the position of prostration and sit down. While doing this, it is recommended to utter the Takb�r statement and to sit on your hip, saying the following:

اسْتَغْفِرُ ٱللَّهَ رَبِّي وَاتُوبُ إِلَيْهِ

astaghfiru all�hu rabb� wa at�bu ilayhi

I implore Allah, my Lord, for forgiveness and I repent to Him.

You may also say the following:

اللَّهُمَّ ٱغْفِرْ لِي وَٱرْحَمْنِي

all�humma ighfir l� war�amn�

O Allah, (please) forgive me, have mercy upon me,

وَٱجْبُرْنِي وَٱدْفَعْ عَنِّي وَعَافِنِي

wajburn� wadfa` `ann� wa `�fin�

set aright my affairs, defend me, and grant me wellbeing.

إِنِّي لِمَا انْزَلْتَ إِلَيَّ مِنْ خَيْرٍ فَقِيرٌ

inn� lim� anzalta ilyya min khayrin faq�run

Surely, I stand in need of whatever good You may send down to me.

تَبَارَكَ ٱللَّهُ رَبُّ ٱلْعَالَمِينَ

tab�raka all�hu rabbu al`�lam�na

Blessed be Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.

You may then say Takb�r and prostrate again, doing the same as what you have done in the first prostration. You may then raise your head and sit for rest. You may then stand up saying,

بِحَوْلِ ٱللَّهِ وَقُوَّتِهِ اقُومُ وَاقْعُدُ

bi�awli all�h wa quwwatih� aq�mu wa aq`udu

With the might of Allah and with His power, I stand up and sit down.

When you stand erect, you should recite S�rah al-F�ti�ah and another S�rah, preferably S�rah al-Taw��d, after which you may say the following three times:

كَذٰلِكَ ٱللَّهُ رَبِّي

kadh�lika all�hu rabb�

Such is Allah, my Lord.

You may then say the Takb�r statement and raise your hands to the level of your face turning the inner surface (i.e. palm) of your hands towards the sky and combining all your fingers, except the thumb, together and say any of the Qun�t supplications, preferably choosing words of praying for relief. After that, you may say the following:

اللَّهُمَّ ٱغْفِرْ لَنَا وَٱرْحَمْنَا

all�humma ighfir lan� war�amn�

O Allah, (please) forgive us, have mercy upon us,

وَعَافِنَا وَٱعْفُ عَنَّا

إِنَّكَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

innaka `al� kulli shay'in qad�run

Verily, You have power over all things.

You may say the following thereafter:

اللَّهُمَّ مَنْ كَانَ اصْبَحَ وَلَهُ ثِقَةٌ اوْ رَجَاءٌ غَيْرُكَ

all�humma man k�na a�ba�a wa lah� thiqatun aw raj�'un ghayruka

O Allah, if there is any one who begins his day by putting his trust and his hope in any one other than You,

فَانْتَ ثِقَتِي وَرَجَائِي

fa'anta thiqat� wa raj�'�

then You (alone) is my trust and my hope.
