BackHoly Prophet's Prayer

Its reported by Sayyid Ibn Tawuus via Imam Ali Ridha, through an authenticated chain that the Prophet used to perform a 2 rakat prayer as described.

  1. In the first rakaat, after Surah Al Fatiha, recite Surah Qadr, 97 times

    بِّسْمِ ٱللَّهِ ٱلرَّحْمَٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ إِنَّآ أَنزَلْنَٰهُ فِى لَيْلَةِ ٱلْقَدْرِ
    Surely We revealed it on the grand night.
    وَمَآ أَدْرَىٰكَ مَا لَيْلَةُ ٱلْقَدْرِ
    And what will make you comprehend what the grand night
    لَيْلَةُ ٱلْقَدْرِ خَيْرٌ مِّنْ أَلْفِ شَهْرٍ
    The grand night is better than a thousand months.
    تَنَزَّلُ ٱلْمَلَٰٓئِكَةُ وَٱلرُّوحُ فِيهَا بِإِذْنِ رَبِّهِم مِّن كُلِّ أَمْرٍ
    The angels and Jibreel descend in it by the permission of their Lord for every affair,
    سَلَٰمٌ هِىَ حَتَّىٰ مَطْلَعِ ٱلْفَجْرِ
    Peace! it is till the break of the morning.
