Sit after first Sajdah: Sit at ease for seconds and say (Allaho akbar)

Sit up after the second Sajdah: Then sit up for seconds saying (Allaho akbar). In this way, first Rakaa is done, so stand up

 

Stand up for the decond Rakaa: After standing up steadily read Sourat Al-Fatiha and another soura (same as you did in the first Rakaa)

 

Qunut: After reciting sourat Al-Fatiha and onother soura and befor Ruku, it is preferable to recite a short Du’aa

 

Ruku (Bowing): Then bow and say (Subhana rabbiyal -adheemi wa behamdeh), then it is preferable to say (Allahuma salli ala mohammed wa ale mohaamed)

 

Stand up after Ruku: Then stand up erect with stability second s and say (same’a allaho leman hamedah) and go to Sujoud

 

The first Sajdah of the second Rakaa: Then put your forehead, palms, big toes of both feet and both knees on the ground and say (Subhana rabbiyal a’la wa bihamdeh Allahuma salli ala mohammed wa ale mohaamed)

 

Sit after first Sajdah: Sit at ease for seconds and say (Allaho akbar)

 

The second Sajdah: Then kneel for the second Sajdah and say (Subhana rabbiyal a’la wa bihamdeh) and it is preferable to say (Allahuma salli ala mohammed wa ale mohaamed)

 

Sit up after the second Sajdah: Then sit up and recite the Tashahod and add to it the Tasleem by saying (Allahu akbar), (ash-hado an-la-illaha ilia allah, wah-dahu la sharrika lah, wa-ash-hadu anna mohammadan abdahu wa rasuloh, allahuma salli ala mohammad wa ale mohammad). the last line was Tashahud. In Tasleem, add (As-salamo alayka ayohal nabio wa – rahmatollahe wa barakatoh As- salamo alayna wa ala e’bade – llahe as- saleheen. As- salamo alaykum wa – rahmatollahe wa barakatoh). In this way morning prayer is over.

 

 

Note: As for Al- Magreb prayer; being three Rakaats, after the second Rakaa and Tashahud don’t read the Tasleem, instead get up for the third Rikaa, stand still and say three times (Subhan allahe wal -hamdo lelahe wa la -elaha ellaallho wa-allaho akbar). Then bed for Rukuu and kneel for two Sjouds (as mentioned before) then read the last Tashahud and Tasleem.

As for Al-Dohor, Al- asr and Al- Isha prayers, because each one of them consists of four Rakaats, so after the middle Tashahud perform two Tasbeehat Rakaats (as mentioned above). Then perform the second & last Tashahud and Tasleem.
