Episode 10: The wording for the Tashahhud and supplication after it

(142) The tashahhud is obligatory. If he forgets it, then he should perform two extra prostrations for forgetfulness (Sajdatus-Sahw) at the end of the Prayer.

(143) Its wording is:

At-Tahiyyaatu lillaahi, was-Salwaatu, wat-Tayyibaatu. As-Salaamu 'alan-Nabee', wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh. As-Salaamu 'alaynaa wa 'alaa 'ibaad-illaah-is-Saaliheen. Ashhadu an laa ilaaha illAllaah, wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan ' abduhu wa rasooluh

Words of Praise and glorification are for Allaah alone, and Prayers and acts of worship, and pure words and attributes. May Allaah send peace and security upon the Prophet (19), and may Allaah's Mercy and Blessings be upon him. May Allaah send peace and security upon us, and upon all of Allaah's righteous servants. I bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His Slave and Messenger (20).

(144) After this he should supplicate for blessings upon the Prophet (peace be and blessing be upon him) saying:

Allaahumma Salli 'alaa Muhammad, wa 'alaa Aali Muhammad, kamaa sallayta 'alaa Ibraaheem, wa 'alaa Aali Ibraaheem, innaka Hameedun Majeed. Allaahumma baarik 'alaa Muhammad, wa 'alaa Aali Muhammad, kamaa baarakta 'alaa Ibraaheem, wa 'alaa Aali Ibraaheem, innaka Hameedun Majeed.

O Allaah! Extol and honor Muhammad and the true followers of Muhammad, just as You extolled and honored Ibraaheem and the righteous offspring of Ibraaheem. Indeed, You are deserving of all praise, Perfect in Glory and Honor. 0 Allaah! Send continual blessings upon Muhammad and upon the true followers of Muhammad, just as You sent blessings upon Ibraaheem and upon the righteous offspring of Ibraaheem. Indeed, You are deserving of all praise, Perfect in Glory and Honor.

(145) And if you wish to say it in shorter form, then say:

Allaahumma Salli 'alaa Muhammad, wa ‘alaa Aali Muhammed, wa baarik 'alaa Muhammad, wa 'alaa Aal Muhammad, kamaa sallayta wa baarakta ' alaa Ibraaheem wa 'alaa Aali lbraaheem, innaka Hameedun Majeed.

O Allaah! Extol and honor Muhammad and the true followers of Muhammad, and send continual blessings upon Muhammad and upon the true followers of Muhammad, just as You extolled and honored and sent blessings upon Ibraaheem and upon the righteous offspring of Ibraaheem. Indeed, You are deserving of all praise, Perfect in Glory and Honor.

(146) Then he may choose, in this tashahhud, any of the reported supplications that please him, sand supplicate to Allaah with that.

 

(19) This is what it is prescribed to say after the death of the Prophet and this wording is established in the tashahhud of Ibn Mas'ood, 'Aa'ishah, Ibn az-Zubayr and Ibn 'Abbaas. So whoever wishes may refer to my book Sifatus-Salaat, (Eng. transl. p. 68).

(20) I have mentioned other wordings of the tashahhud in my book (Eng. transl. pp. 67-70), and that which I have mentioned here is the most authentic
