What to recite in prayers?
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Q-1: I would like
to know that In our Holly book Quran is there a Date of Brith or only at what
day Prophet "ISSA
The Glorious Quran and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) is absolutely silent about the specific date of the birth of not only Prophet Isa (a.s.), but of all the Prophets in Islam. If the dates of the birth of these noble Prophets was important for the guidance of mankind, Allah Subhanah would have made it known to man!
Q-2: I would Like to know how and What Should we Read in Namaz some people says that Like in 3Viters for Ishaa if you dont know a Duwwa-e-Qanut then Instead of that We can Read Sura "Ihlass" 3 times. Can you plzz tell me What Shuold I read in all of my 5 prayers. And is it right to read Sura Ihlass instead of "Duwwa-e-Qanut. So can You Please also tell me Manners and what shuold I pray In Namaz.
Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, the question asked is very vast and vague, and if we were to write on all the manners and what exactly is to be prayed in each type of prayer, it would indeed become a very lengthy answer. Thus we humbly request you to specify exactly what clarification is needed, and if Allah helps us, we shall strive to guide you from the Quran and the Sunnah, Insha Allah.
Just to relate some points which would help clarify what we assume is being asked in your above question:
Q-2A: How many rakahs in witr prayers.
One may pray as few as two or as many rakahs in even numbered combinations as one wishes after Isha prayers, and end the prayer with one rakah of witr.
Q-2B: What to pray if one does not know the Qunut supplication
The Qunut supplication is not amongst the obligatory conditions of any prayer; thus if one does not wish to recite the Qunut supplication there is absolutely no harm, and the prayers will be regarded as valid.
Q-2C: should one substitute the recitation of Surah Ikhlaas three times instead of Qunut supplication:
To recite Surah Ikhlaas three times instead of the Qunut supplication was neither the practice of the Messenger of Allah (saws), nor the guidance given by the Messenger of Allah (saws). The Qunut supplication is not obligatory in any prayer, and if one does not offer the Qunut supplication there is absolutely no harm as it does not in any way effect the validity of the prayer.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
