9️⃣ We are now ready to start reciting:
a) We will first begin by praising Allah Ta’ala by reading Thanaa:
سُبْحَانَكَ الّلهمَّ وَبِحَمْدِكَ وَتَباَرَكَ اسْمُكَ وَتَعاَلى جَدُّك وَلآاِلهَ غَيْرُك
b) Once we have read this, we will read Ta’awwudh and Tasmiyah, followed by Surah Fatihah:
أعوذ بالله من الشيطان الرجيم
بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
الْحَمْدُ لِلَّـهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ ۔ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ ۔ مَالِكِ يَوْمِ الدِّينِ ۔ إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ ۔ اهْدِنَا الصِّرَاطَ الْمُسْتَقِيمَ ۔ صِرَاطَ الَّذِينَ أَنْعَمْتَ عَلَيْهِمْ ۔ غَيْرِ الْمَغْضُوبِ عَلَيْهِمْ وَلَا الضَّالِّينَ
c) After completing Surah Fatihah say Aameen softly and then read any surah of the Glorious Qur’an or at least 3 verses.
Note: It is sunnah to recite from the following places in the Fardh of:
Fajr – From Surah al-Hujurat to Surah al-Buruj
Zuhr – From Surah al-Hujurat to Surah al-Buruj
Asr – From Surah al-Buruj to the end of Surah al-Bayyinah
Maghrib – From Surah al-Bayyinah to the final Surah al-Nas
Esha – From Surah al-Buruj to the end of Surah al-Bayyinah
We have now Alhamdulillah completed our Qiyam (standing posture of salah). We are now ready to move to the next posture.
Look at how amazing our beloved Nabi ﷺ was!!
Read the Miracle of Our Beloved Nabi ﷺ breaking a huge rock!
Rasulullaah ﷺ’s Miracle Splitting a boulder
One week before the battle of trenches, the Sahabah were tirelessly digging a long trench to protect Madinah Munawwarah from a large army of non-Muslims. Our beloved Nabi ﷺ was also digging and helping when some sahaba came and complained about a large boulder/rock which was in their way and could not be broken.
Our beloved Nabi ﷺ went to the place of this boulder and struck it three times.
With each strike a bright light appeared. Upon the third strike, this large rock crumbled to pieces! This was incredible considering the Sahaba were strong and trained for battle and our beloved Nabi ﷺ was able to do what they could not.
[This incident can be found in Saheeh Bukhaari 1014]
