Understanding the Pillars of Prayer and Iftitah Prayer Allahumma Baid

Iftitah Allahumma Baid prayer – Salat 5 times as one of the pillars of Islam for Muslims which then becomes an obligation to fulfill. The obligation to perform the 5 daily prayers has been narrated in the hadith of Ibn Abbas radhiyallahu anhu which reads:

“That the Prophet SAW. had sent Muadz RA to Yemen, he said to him, ‘Invite them (the inhabitants of Yemen) to be able to testify that there is no god but Allah and that I am indeed Allah’s messenger, if they then wait for it, then tell them that Allah has made it obligatory for them five pray in a day and night,” HR. Al-Bukhari.

In prayer there is an Iftitah prayer which some people usually use with the Iftitah Allaahu Akbar Kabiraa prayer and there is also an Iftitah Allahumma Baid prayer. The two iftitah prayers can both be used when a Muslim prays.

Prayer Prayer Order and Explanation

Takbiratul Ihram

Takbiratul ihram is then carried out after reading the intention. The way to do takbiratul ihram is to raise your hands parallel to your ears and then say, “Allahu Akbar”.

The procedure for performing takbiratul ihram, namely:

  1. The position of the palms when performing takbiratul ihram is to stretch out perfectly and not grip. Fingers are also not too wide or too tight when opening it.

From Abu Hurairah radhiyallahu ‘anhu, Rasulullah shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said: “The Messenger of Allah shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam when he started praying, he raised his hands and spread them out.” (Narrated by Abu Daud 753, Turmudzi 240, and authenticated by al-Albani)

  1. The palms are then faced towards the Qiblah and raised to the level of the shoulders or ears. From Ibn Umar radhiyallahu ‘anhu, he narrated that Rasulullah shallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam then raised his hands to shoulder height, when starting to pray.
  2. Raise your hands up to your shoulders and then read the sentence “Allahu Akbar”.

Raise your hands then cross your arms together with the recitation of the takbir. From Ibn Umar radhiyallahu ‘anhuma he said: “I saw the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam starting takbiratul ihram when praying, he raised his hands when takbir.” (Narrated by Bukhari 738)

  1. The legal conditions for takbiratul ihram include doing it while standing for those who can afford it. Takbiratul ihram must also be performed in a perfectly upright body position and may not appear to be slouching.
  2. Takbiratul ihram in prayer is only done once and does not need to be repeated.
  3. For someone who prays alone, or acts as a makmum, then the reading of takbiratul ihram can only be heard by himself.

Takbiratul Ihram reading

For Muslims, the reading of iftitah prayers and takbiratul ihram then becomes mandatory to know. Because, takbiratul ihram is included in the pillars of prayer which is then obligatory to do.

The prayer service will then begin with takbiratul ihram by raising both hands. After that, it is continued by reading the iftitah prayer. As in the Hadith of the History of Imaam Al Bukhoory no: 6251 and Imam Muslim no: 397, from Abu Hurairah RA’s friend, that Rasulullah SAW said:

See also  Types of Kafarat and How to Pay It

“If you then stand up to pray, then complete your ablution then face the Qibla, then say takbir.” So what are the correct iftitah and takbiratul ihram prayers?

The reading of takbiratul ihram is as follows: اللَّهُ أَكْبَرُ Allahu Akbar Meaning: “Allah is Great”

When reciting the takbir, it’s best to pause when pronouncing “hu” (from the word Allahu). Besides that, don’t combine it with “a” (from the beginning of the word besar). So that the takbiratul ihram will not sound like as if reciting “huwa” (Allahu Akbar). It’s also best not to extend the word “actor”, so that it becomes great. Muslims should pronounce the end of takbir with “bar”, not “akbaru”.

Iftitah prayer

After saying the first takbir, fold your hands in front of your chest, again to be precise in the area that is closer to your heart.

One of the iftitah prayer readings, namely:

“Allaahu akbar kabiirow wal hamdu lillaahi katsiiroo wasubhaanalloohi bukrotaw wa-ashiilaa. Innii wajjahtu wajhiya lilladzii fathoros samaawaati wal ardlo haniifaa wamaa ana minal musyrikiin. Inna sholaatii wa nusukii wamahyaa wa mamaatii lillaahi robbil ‘alamin. Laa syariikalahu wa bidzaalika umirtu wa ana awwalul muslimiin”.

Al-Fatiha prayer

In each cycle, you are then required to read Surah Al-Fatihah. Reading the Al-Fatihah letter in every rak’ah is part of the pillars of prayer.

Reading Short Letters

The procedure for the 5 obligatory prayers the next time is to read a short letter. This short letter is then read in the first two cycles of prayer. However, unlike Al-Fatihah, reading short legal letters is sunnah.

Ruku and i’tidal

After finishing reading Al-Fatihah and short letters, it’s time to bow. When bowing, the prayer recited is: “Subhaana rabbiyal adzimi wa bihamdihi” (read 3 times).

After bowing, then it is required to read: ” Sami Allahu liman hamidah” . This reading is then recited while raising both hands at the level of the ears and standing straight. After that, the procedure for the next prayer is to read the itidal. The reading of the i’tidal prayer is: “ Rabbana lakal hamdu mil us samawati wa mil ul ardhi wa mil umasita min syai’in badu’ ‘.

Prostrate and sit between the two prostrations

Sujud is a position that is done by placing both palms and pressing the forehead and nose on the sejadah. As for the reading of the prostration prayer that must be said is: ” Subhaana rabbiyal ‘a’la wa bihamdihi ” (read 3 times).

After that, the next pillar of prayer is sitting between two prostrations. The reading of the prayer sitting between the two prostrations is: ” Robighfirlii warhamnii wajburnii warfa’nii wahdinii wa ‘aafinii wa’fu ‘annii “.

Initial Tasyahud

The initial tasyahud is then performed during the second cycle of the midday, afternoon, evening and evening prayers. The following below is the initial tasyahud prayer reading: ” Attahiyyatul mubarakaatus salawatut tayyibatu lillah. Assalamu alaika ayyuhan nabiyyu warahmatullahi wabarakatuh. Assalamu alaina wa ala ibadillahis salihin. Asyhadu alla ilaha illallah. Wa asyhadu anna Muhammadar Rasulullah. Allahumma salli ala sayyidina Muhammad .”

Final Tasyahud

The last pillar of prayer in a good and correct way of praying is the final tasyahud. This pillar is then carried out before greeting the last rak’ah. As for reading the final tasyahud, namely:

“ At-tahiyyaatu al-mubaarakaatu al-shalawaatu al-thoyyibaatu lillahi. Assalamu ‘alaika ayyuhan nabiyyu wa Rahmatullahi wa barakaatuhu. As-Salaamu ‘alainaa wa ‘alaa’ibaadillahi as-shoolihin. Asyhadu an laa ilaaha illa Allah wa Asyhadu anna Muhammadar rasuulullah. Allahumma Sholli ‘ala Sayyidinaa Muhammad. Wa ‘ala aali sayyidina Muhammad Kamaa shollayta ‘ala sayyidina Ibrahim. Wa Baarik ‘ala sayyidina Muhammad wa ‘ala aali sayyidina Muhammad. Kamaa baarakta ‘ala sayyidinaa Ibrahim, wa ‘ala sayyidina Ibrahim, fil ‘aalamiina innaka hamiidun majiid.”.


Greeting is the last movement in prayer by saying “Assalamu ‘alaikum warahmatullah” by turning to the right, then saying the greeting again by turning to the left.

Kinds of Iftitah Prayers

Iftitah prayer is divided into two versions, here are the full explanations.

Prayer Iftitah Allaahu Akbar Kabiraa

اَللهُ اَكْبَرُ كَبِيْرًا وَالْحَمْدُ لِلّهِ كَثِيْرًا وَسُبْحَانَ اللهِ بُكْرَةً وَاَصِيْلًا. اِنِّى وَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِيَ لِلَّذِيْ فَطَرَالسَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْnk Amen. لاَ شَرِيْكَ لَهُ وَبِذَلِكَ اُمِرْتُ وَاَنَا مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِيْنَ


Allaahu akbar kabiraa walhamdulillaahi katsiiraa, wa subhaanallaahi bukratan wa’ashiilaa. Innii wajjahtu wajhiya lilladzii fatharas samaawaati wal ardha haniifan musliman wa maa anaa minal musyrikiin. Inna shalaatii wa nusukii wa mahyaaya wa mamaatii lillaahi rabbil ‘aalamiin. Laa syariikalahu wa bidzaalika umirtu wa ana minal muslimiin.

It means:

Allah is the Greatest with the greatest, all praise be to Allah with much praise. Glory be to Allah in the morning and evening. Indeed, I turn my face to Allah, who created the heavens and the earth with all obedience or in a state of submission, and I am not from those who associate partners with Him. Verily, my prayer, my worship, my life and my death are only for Allah, the Lord of the Worlds, Who has no partner for Him. Thus I was ordered. And I am one of the Muslims.

Prayer Iftitah Allahumma good

??? اللَّهُمَّ نَقِّنِى مِنَ الْخَطَايَا كَمَا يُنَقَّى الثَّوْبُ الأَبْيَضُ مِنَ الدَّنَسِ . Allah, the Most High, the Most Merciful

Allahumma baa’id bainii wa baina khathaayaaya kamaa baa’adta bainal masyriqi wal maghrib. Allahumma naqqinii minal khathaayaa kamaa yunaqqatsawbul abyadlu minaddanasi. Allahummaghsil khathaayaaya bil maai watstsalji walbaradi.

It means:

O Allah, distance between me and my mistakes as you keep the east and the west. O Allah, purify my mistakes as white clothes are purified from dirt. O Allah, wash my faults with water, snow and cold water.” (Narrated by Bukhari and Muslim)

Thus the discussion about the pillars of prayer along with iftitah prayers. In general, the Iftitah prayer used is the Iftitah Allaahu Akbar Kabiraa prayer. Even so, there are also some people who read the Iftitah Allahumma Baid prayer during fardhu prayers. Hopefully all the discussion above is useful for Sinaumed’s.

The Miracle of Dhuha, Tahajjud, and Other Sunnah Prayers

From Abu Hurairah, he said that the Prophet sallallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam said: “Indeed, the first practice that will be brought to account by humans on the Day of Judgment is prayer. Allah ‘azza wa jalla said to His angels and He who knows better, ‘Look at my servant’s prayer. Is the prayer perfect or not? If the prayer is perfect, it will be recorded for him a perfect reward. However, if there is a slight deficiency in his prayer, then Allah says: see, whether my servant has sunnah practices.

If My servant has a sunnah practice, Allah says: make up for the deficiencies that exist in the obligatory practice with the sunnah practice.’ Then other practices will be treated like this.” (Narrated by Abu Daud no. 864, Ibn Majah no. 1426 and Ahmad 2:425. Shaykh Al Albani says that this hadith is valid.) The Miracle of Tahajud and Other Sunnah Prayers.

Through this book, you can find out how many sunnah prayers you can perform in addition to the good practices that can be used as provisions on the day of reckoning. Happy reading, may we be part of the people who always get priority from Him. Amen.


The Power Of Tahajjud

It is fitting for those who believe to always establish prayer. However, the real prayer is heavy, except for those who are humble in their prayers. Then, how can someone be humble when praying? Namely by knowing the virtues of the prayer. So one can easily get solemnity in worship. This book tries to diskuss the primacy of the various kinds of worship that we have often done.

It is hoped that by knowing the various kinds of virtues, all of us as believers will become more enthusiastic and better at worshiping Allah SWT, especially in prayer. In addition to prayer, the book also diskusses blessings in the morning. Very lucky are those who are used to getting up in the morning and very much at a loss for those who spend their mornings just sleeping.

We can see all of this and we imitate it from our role model, Rasulullah, Muhammad SAW. This book is also equipped with scientific research from the various worships that we live which turn out to be very good for our bodies. But even so, the most important thing and we must guard is that worship by faith, not by research.


The Power of Tahajud Dhuha Alms (TDS)

In the Qur’an, Allah often combines prayer orders with zakat. Because, the first is worship related to God’s rights, while the other is related to human rights. These two acts of worship have a very important position, especially prayer. So, to perfect these two worships, Allah gave the people of Muhammad the opportunity to perform sunnah worship of a kind, in the form of sunnah prayers and alms.

Tahajud and Dhuha prayers are complementary to our obligatory prayers. Similarly alms sunnah, to complement our zakat. In these three practices, there are great benefits and powerful virtues. Answering prayers, abundance of sustenance, blessings, forgiveness of sins, noble position at His side, ward off misfortune and illness, prayers of angels, multiple rewards, serenity and serenity, are just a few of them. While the greatest is freedom from hell and being put into heaven.


The Power of Alms Tahajud Dhuha & Donation for Orphans

Ihsan is the highest level of worship. A muhsin will not limit himself, by simply carrying out or aborting obligations. He will add other acts of worship as a complement to the obligatory worship he has done. The more someone does ihsan, then Allah will do ihsan to him more than what he did. So that his life will be filled with awesomeness. Alms, Tahajud, Dhuha, and Santuni for orphans are ihsan practices that will add to the awesomeness of our lives. Do these practices with all your heart, with determination, and with all your faith in your soul, so that we can enjoy their awesomeness.
