The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

Reciting the prayers of "Rabbana atina" and "Rabbana'ghfirli" in the last sitting of prayers is sunnah. A person gains the reward (thawab) of sunnah by reciting these prayers. His/her prayer is not invalidated when he/she does not recite them. However, if a person does not recite them, he/she becomes deprived of the reward of sunnah. They are recited as follows:

The Prayer of Rabbenâ âtina:

"Rabbana atina fi'd-dunya hasanatan wa fi'l-akhirati hasanatan wa qina adhaba'n-nar." (al Baqara, 2/201)

Its Translation: "Our Lord! Give us good in this world and good in the Hereafter and save us from the torment of the fire."

The Prayer of Rabbana-ghfirli:

"Rabbana, ighfir li wali walidayya wa lil mu'minina yawma yaqumu'l-hisab." (Ibrahim 14/41)

Its Translation: "O our Lord! cover (us) with Thy Forgiveness― me, my parents, and (all) Believers, on the Day that the Reckoning will be established!"
