|Authentic Supplications of the Prophet
When Bowing, Getting up from a Bow, Prostrating, or Sitting in Between
| And in the hadeeth of Ali
about the salãt of the Messenger of Allah :
and when he would bow he would say in his bowing: 'Allãhumma
laka raka`tu, wabika ãmentu, walaka 'aslamtu, khasha`a laka
sam`ee, wa basaree, wa mukhkhee, wa `athmee, wa `asabee(99)
When he would lift his head from the bowing he would say: Sami`al-lãhu
liman hamidahu, rabbanã walakal hamdu, mil'as-samãwãti,
wa mil'al-'ardhi, wa mil'a mã baynahumã, wa mil'a mã
shi'ta min shay'in ba`du,(100)
and when he would have prostrated he would say in his prostration:
'Allãhumma laka sajadtu, wabika ãmentu, walaka 'aslamtu,
sajada wajhee lil-lathee khalaqahu wa sawwarahu, wa shaqqa sam`ahu,
wa basarahu, tabãrakal-lahu 'ahsanul khãliqeena(101)
(99) O' my 'ilãh to You
I have bowed, and in You I have cammitted faith, and before Thee
my hearing, my sight, my marrow, my bones, and my nerves have humbled
[surrendered in complete fear, humility, and obedience to You].
(100) Allah hears the one that
praises Him! You are our Lord and to You is all praise, as much
as would fill the Heavens, as much as would fill the Earth, as much
as would fill that which is in between them, and as much as would
fill what ever You will of anything [else] thereafter.
(101) O' my 'ilãh to
You I have prostrated, and in You I have committed faith, and to
You I have surrendered. My face has prostrated to the One that has
created it, fashioned it, and slit for it its hearing and its sight.
Blessed is Allah best of creators.
