Section XVI: Sunnah Acts after Prayer Invocations and Supplications and the Ruling of Reciting Them Out Loud

Firstly: Sunnah Supplications after Prayer I seek Allah’s forgiveness (three times). O Allah, You are the Grantor of security, and from You is security. Blessed are You, O Possessor of Magnificence and Generosity. My Lord, protect me from Your torment on the day You resurrect Your slaves. O Allah, assist me in Your remembrance, Your praise, and worshipping You well. O Allah, I seek Your protection from cowardice, and I seek Your protection from miserliness, and I seek Your protection from that I become feeble in age, and I seek Your protection from the trial of this world and the torment of the grave.
Secondly: Sunnah Invocations after Prayer O Allah, You are the Grantor of security, and from You is security. Blessed are You, O Possessor of Magnificence and Generosity. There is no god but Allah, alone, with no partner. The Dominion and praise are His, and He is Omnipotent. O Allah, none deny those You have given, nor can anyone give those You have denied, nor can wealth avail a wealthy person from You. There is no god but Allah, alone, with no partner. The Dominion and praise are His, and He is Omnipotent. There is no power or might except through Allah. There is not god but Allah. We do not worship anything but Him. Bounty and grace are His. All excellent praise is His. There is no god but Allah – in pure devotion to Him alone though the disbelievers may detest it! Glorification, Praise, and Magnification after Prayer
There are four ways of glorification, praise, and magnification:
- To say: “Glorified be Allah” 10 times, “Praise be to Allah” 10 times, and “Allah is the Greatest” 10 times
- To say: “Glorified be Allah” 25 times, “Praise be to Allah” 25 times, “Allah is the Greatest” 25 times, and “There is no god but Allah” 25 times
- To say: “Glorified be Allah” 33 times, “Praise be to Allah” 33 times, and “Allah is the Greatest” 34 times
- To say: “Glorified be Allah” 33 times, “Praise be to Allah” 33 times, “Allah is the Greatest” 33 times, and once in completion of the 100th, “There is no god but Allah, alone, with no partner. The Dominion and praise are His, and He is Omnipotent.”
One can combine them and say, “Glorified be Allah, and Praise be to Allah, and Allah is the Greatest” 33 times.
- How to perform glorification and praise after prayer
- It is sunnah to count the utterances of glorification and praise by counting with one’s fingers. [384] This is achieved by closing them and opening them until one reaches 33. It is better that it be done with the right hand, but there is no harm if one uses both hands. Hanbalis have explicitly mentioned this. It is also the position of al-Nawawi, Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibn al-Qayyim, al-Shawkani, Ibn Baz, and Ibn `Uthaymin. [385] Ibn `Uthaymin says: “The sunnah is to perform glorification with the right hand, because this is what Abu Dawud narrated: that the Prophet ﷺ would count with his right hand. However, strictness in this matter is not appropriate such that one who performs glorification with both hands is censured. Rather, we say that the sunnah is to use only the right hand.”
Thirdly: The Ruling of Invoking Allah Out Loud After Prayer
Scholars are of two positions regarding the legitimacy of invoking Allah out loud after prayer:
The first position: It is mustahabb to invoke Allah out loud after prayer. This is the position of some Hanafis and some late Hanbalis. Ibn Hazm [386] He limited this to magnification of Allah only (i.e. saying “Allah is the Greatest”). , Ibn Taymiyyah, Ibn Baz, and Ibn `Uthaymin chose this position.
The second position: Invoking Allah out loud after prayer is not legislated. [387] The Shafi`is and Hanbalis hold this view except for an imam who wants to be emulated. In this case, he invokes out loud until he is done teaching and then invokes quietly. This is the position of the Malikis, Shafi`is, some Hanafis. It is said to be the position of the majority of scholars. Al-Mirdawi deemed it correct and al-Albani chose this position.
