O merciful God.”

As aluka muujibaari rohmatika wa ‘azaaima maghfirotika wal ghoniimata ming kulli birri wassalaamata ming kulli itsmin laa tada lii dzamban illa ghofartahu walaa hamman illaa farojtahu walaa haajatan hiya laka ridho illa qodhoitahaa yaa arhamar roohimiin.”)

This fifth prayer is in the form of istighfar which is a dhikr to ask Allah SWT for forgiveness. This istighfar remembrance is read 100 times after the hajat prayer is performed. So, here is the istighfar reading:
“I beg forgiveness from Allah the Most Great.”
Sixth Prayer: Blessings
As with reading the prayer of istighfar, this shalawat is also recommended to be read after carrying out the hajat prayer. Usually reading this shalawat is read 100 times after reading istighfar which is also 100 times.
The reading of the shalawat prayer that can be read is: “Allahumma shalli alaa sayyidinaa Muhammadin shalaatarridhaa wardha an ashaabihir ridhar ridhaa”.
It means, “O Allah, give the gift of welfare to our lord Muhammad, the welfare that is blessed, and is blessed from all friends.”

Tenth Prayer: Surah Al-Ikhlas
The Al-Ikhlas prayer, which is usually often recited when performing the obligatory prayer, can also be read when the hajat prayer is finished. This Surah Al-Ikhlas is a surah that is contained in the holy book of the Al-Quran which embodies Allah SWT, reads:
In this surah, starting from the first verse to the last, more or less conveys that as Muslims, we are indeed obliged to always unite Allah SWT. There is only one God, without a mother, father or children. In addition, Allah SWT is also a place for His servants to always depend or depend on. That is, we must surrender all things to Allah SWT, because all the provisions and provisions of our life are in His will. In this mortal world, there is indeed no one who can equal the position of Allah SWT and no one can make partners of Allah SWT.
The Eleventh Prayer: Surah Al-Alaq
If Sinaumed’s wants to read this surah when he finishes performing the hajat prayer, it should be read 11 times, right? Al-Falaq means dawn, so the right time to read it is during the dawn prayer. The following is a recitation of surah Al-Alaq.
Based on the reading and translation of the surah, it can be understood that the God who rules the dawn is Allah SWT. Allah SWT is also the one who is able to split the night into the morning. Not only that, in the surah Al-Alaq it means that we must ask Allah SWT to protect us from all the ugliness of all His creatures on this earth. All of His creatures are diverse, can be in the form of animals, jinns, even fellow humans who pose a danger.
Even more so at night, which is the “right” time for demons to roam around along with the humans and animals that wreak havoc. In the translation of surah Al-Alaq, there is also the sentence “and from the evil of the witch women who breathe on knots”. The point is that we have to protect ourselves from sorcerers who turn out to be not only women, but also men.
The evil we should most avoid is envy which is human nature. Yep, humans who are jealous will always justify any means to get the favors that are owned by other people.
Twelfth Prayer: Surah An-Nas
In addition to surahs Al-Ikhlas and Al-Alaq, there is also a short surah An-Nas which apparently can also be read after performing the hajat prayer. An-Nas means human, so the overall meaning of this surah is about human life. The following is the sound of surah An-Nas:
Thirteenth Prayer: Chair Verse
This chair verse is part of the surah Al-Baqarah which is in verse 255. Its presence is often used as a dhikr to prayer to protect oneself from the devil’s disturbances. If Sinaumed’s wants to read this Ayat Kursi as a closing prayer after performing the hajat prayer, it’s best to read it 11 times, OK?
The Fourteenth Prayer: Hauqolah Reading
Hauqolah reading is actually very important for human life, especially for Muslims. So, here is the Hauqolah reading which should be read 100 times after performing the hajat prayer: “Laa haula walaa quwwata illa billahil aliyyil adziim”
Meaning: “There is no power and no power except with the help of Allah, the Most High and the Most Great.”
