Dear Brother / Sister,
After tasbihat (glorifications), "wal hamdulillahi rabbil 'alamin, al Fatiha" is said. "Wal hamdulillahi rabbil 'alamin" is the 182nd verse of the chapter of as-Saffat.
After completing the recitation of some verses of the Quran after tasbihat, the following verses "Subhana rabbika rabbil 'izzati amma yasifun wa salamun alal mursalin wal hamdulillahi rabbil 'alamin" (al SAFFAT, 180-181-182) are recited and then "al Fatiha" is said.
The translation of the verses is as follows:
"Glory to thy Lord the Lord, of Honour and Power! (He is free) from what they ascribe (to Him)! And Peace on the Messengers! And praise to Allah, the Lord and Cherisher of the Worlds." (Surah as-Saaffat, 180-182)
These verses are very meaningful. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said the following in a hadith reported by Ibn Abi Hatim from Shabi;
"Whoever wants to be happy for his thawab (reward) be weighed on the Day of Judgement in a large scale should say the following when he is about to leave the majlis (gathering) in which he sits: "Subhana rabbika rabbil 'izzati amma yasifun wa salamun alal mursalin wal hamdulillahi rabbil 'alamin. (al SAFFAT, 180-182)" (Qurtubi, al-Jamiu lil-Ahkamil Quran,15/141. Suyuti, ad-dDurrul Mansur, 5/141. Alusi, Ruhul Maani, 12/159) (Elmalılı Hamdi Yazır, Hak Dini Kur'an Dili)
These verses are recited when the jamaah leaves the mosque upon the advice of this hadith.
Questions on Islam
- Can the verse; "Subhana rabbika rabbil 'izzati amma yasifun wa salamun alal mursalin wal hamdulillahi rabbil 'alamin" be recited in any rak'ath of a prayer after al-Fatiha?
- Will you give information about the duas (supplications) and tasbihat (glorifications) read in prayer (salah) and thawabs given for them?
- Does sajda as-sahw (prostration of forgetfulness) become necessary if we change the places of the invocations that we recite in ruku and sajdah?
- Is it permissible to recite the invocations of ruku and sajdah one time which we normally recite three times?
- How is salat (prayer) performed? Can you determine it orderly with photos?
- How is Prayer (salah) performed? Will you please explain orderly with photographs?
- Can you give information about the meaning of the supplication (dua) and glorification (tasbih) in the prayer and the rewards given for them?
- What is the criterion for the length of the ruku and sajdah in prayers? How many times can invocations be recited at ruku (bowing down in prayer) and sajdah (prostration) at most?
- Does lifting the foot from the ground while in prostration invalidate prayer? Is it necessary to keep the big toe of the right foot on the ground during prostration only or throughout the prayer?
