Method of Performing Salat eQuranAcademy

1- Neeyat

Neeyat is the first step of both the sunnat and farz of Fajr prayer. We state our neeyat (intention) in heart that we are going to offer the salat-e-fajr. In the neeyat we state, “I intend to perform two rikaat sunnat (farz, in case of farz) for Allah at time of fajr with my face towards Khana Kabah,” and then we raise hands in a manner in the image below in article and say, “Allahu Akbar.”

2- First Rikaat

After neeyat, first rikaat of sunnat of Fajr namaz is offered. In first rikaat after neeyat, while folding hands on chest, we recite Subhanaka then taaooz, then tasmeeh and then Surat ul Fatiha. After Surah e Fatiha, we recite a surat of Quran. Usually, Muslims recite Surah e Ikhlas. After reciting Surah e Ikhlas, Takbir is said again the same way as before. we go in Ruku and recite, “Subhana Rabbiyal Azeem” three times calmly.

 Then return to the standing position and recite, “Sami Allahu Liman hamida rabbana lakal hamd.” After that, we again say Allahu Akbar but in standing position. Then we go to prostration (sajdah) and recite, “Subhana Rabbiyal Ala” thrice. After sajdah we rise, sit and say, “Allahu Akbar.” Then we again go in sajdah and say “Subhana Rabbiyal Ala” thrice and rise, sit and say, “Allahu Akbar” again. Here first rikaat gets over.

3- Second Rikaat

At completion of first rikaat, we stand up again and recite Surah e Fatiha with Surah ikhlas in same standing position while folding the hands on chest. Same steps of saying Takbir, performing ruku and two sajdahs are performed in second rikaat.

After second sajdah in second rikaat, while sitting in the position shown below in image, we recite At-tahiyyat then tashhad with first finger of right hand raised. Then we lower down the finger after reciting tashhad till “muhammadan” and continue the recitation of remaining part of tashhad. Then we recite darood shareef and Rabbana or Rabb-e-ja’alni.

4- Salam

After reciting Rabbana or Rabb-e-ja’alni we turn our face towards right side or right shoulder and say, “As Salaam-u alaikum wa rahmatullahe wabarakatu.” Then we turn our face towards left side and say, “As Salaam-u alaikum wa rahmatullahe wabarakatu.” This is called salam and two rikaat sunnat of Fajr prayer is finished here.


After two rikaat sunnat, two rikaat farz is offered which is performed in a same way as two rikaat sunnat. And after two rikaat farz, the Fajr prayer is fully completed or finished.
