What are the best follow ups after each Salaat?


The most mentioned follow ups after each Wajeb Salaat are outlined below.

  1. Reciting Salawaat (praise and greetings of Allah (SWT) for the Prophet (PBUH) and his Ahlul Bait (AS)).
  2. It is narrated from the Prophet (PBUH) who told Imam Ali (AS): Ya Ali, recite Ayatul Korsi (Ayahs 255-257 of Surah Al-Baqarah is the complete version) after each Wajeb Salaat because all prophets, the most pious and martyrs recite it [1].
  3. In other narrations reciting Surah Al-Ikhlaas for 3 times has been emphasized as this is considered equal to reciting the whole Quran.
  4. In many Shia sources, Tasbeehaat Hazrat Fatima (AS) (Allahu Akbar- 34 times; Alhamdulellah- 33 times; Sobhanallah-33 times) has been mentioned. Imam Sadeq (AS) said: For me, Tasbeeh Hazrat Fatima Zahra (AS) every day after each Salaat is better that 1000 Ruk’at of Salaat [2]. Imam Baqer (AS) said: God has not been praised more in any other prayers except Tasbeehaat Hazrat Zahra (AS). If there was any better one, Prophet would have granted to Hazrat Zahra (AS) [3].
