When to recite the sunnah du’as after salah


Recommended Posts

Question Should one read the Masnun du’as immediately after the Fardh Salah or read the Sunnah Salah first and then read all the Masnun du’as?



Sayyidatuna A’aishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) reports that when Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) would make salam (after salah) he would not sit except for the duration of

“Allahumma antas salam wa minkas salam tabarakta Ya dhal jalali wal ikram”

(Sahih Muslim, hadith: 1334)


Based on the above hadith, the Hanafi jurists say that a person should not delay in reading his Sunnah Salah, rather he should only sit for a short duration after the Fardh Salah. After the Sunnah Salah one may engage in other adhkar and du’as.


Note: A person may recite any of the (short) Masnun du’as after the Fardh Salah and not only the du’a mentioned in the above narration.

(Refer: Fathul Qadir, vol. 1 pg. 439 and Raddul Muhtar, vol. 1 pg. 530)


 The above rule applies to those salats that are followed by other nafl (sunnah) salats. Fajr and Asr are therefore excluded. One may recite all the sunnah du’as immediately after the fardh of these two salats.


And Allah Ta’ala Knows best
