• How to Perform Salatul Hajat – The Prayer of Need
    Prayer done for the fulfilment of wishes


    The Prophet says about the hajat prayer through which the servant seeks refuge in Allah for the fulfilment of his/her wishes:

    "Whoever wishes anything from Allah, let him/her make ablution properly first, and do two units of prayers afterwards. Then call Allah's benediction to the Prophet, and finally say the following prayer: "There is no god but Allah, the Clement, and the Gentle. Praise be to Allah, the Master of the heavens. And praise be to Allah, the Lord of the universe.

    O my Lord! I wish things that come out of Your Mercy, and I wish Your forgiveness, and I also wish to reach righteousness. O the Lord, the Most Compassionate! Please do not let any sin be unforgiven, any sorrow unrelieved, and any lawful wish declined!.." (Tirmizi, Witr, 17).
