Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
First of all I would like to thank you so much because of this helpline desk i am able to know so much about Islam thanks once again for helping us in a such a easy way. I do not know how to express my feelings may Allah Subhanah fulfil your duva. Ameen. Dear brother, I want to ask you one question please help me.
when i went to my Aunt`s house it was Asr prayer time I saw all my cousin
sisters doing prayer. I watched at them after salam before reading tasbee they
will keep their right hand on their head i mean near to the right ear and they
will read Aythalkursi and after that they will keep hand down and read tasbi
and finally they do duva in sajda.
But when i perform farz namaaz after salaam before reading tasbee i will raise my hands how we do duva in such a way and read Aythalkursi then i will read duva and after that i will read tasbee finally before getting up from prayer mat i will do duva by raising my hands. Please can u explain to me how to perform namaaz in a right way. Sometimes when i am doing lengthy prayers i am getting back pain and leg is swelling. Dear brother if at all i am wrong in asking this question please forgive me I hope you will correct me by answering to my queries.

Supplication after Prayer
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.
May Allah Subhanah reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to Allah and His Deen of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause. We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.
Dear and beloved Sister in Islam, it is the ardent belief of every true believer that there is none is creation who ever walked on this planet earth who worshipped Allah Subhanah better or in a more perfect manner than the noble self of the Last and Final Messenger of Allah, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws). Such was the perfection of this noble soul, in his words and his deeds, in his worship and his supplications, that Allah Subhanah commanded the believers to make him (saws) an example in all their acts in the deen.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzab verse 21:
There is indeed the best example for you to follow, in the Messenger of Allah, for every such person looks forward to Allah and the Last Day, and remembers Allah much.
After one has finished ones prayers by performing the tasleem, one is permitted to praise and supplicate their Lord Most Merciful as much as they can, they wish or as much as is easy for them. If one wishes to lift their hands and supplicate their Lord, it is fine; if one wishes to bow down in prostration and supplicate their Lord, it is fine; if one wishes to sit and supplicate, it is fine! But the absolute best way to supplicate and praise Allah Subhanah is to follow the example of the Messenger of Allah (saws).
Listed below are a few of the authentic narrations of how the Noble Prophet (saws) praised and supplicated the Lord Most Gracious after his prayers:
Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 1.164
Sunnah acts of prayer, Words of Remembrance and Supplications After the Tasleem
It is Sunnah for the believers to use a number of words of remembrance and supplications which have been related from the Prophet (saws). The many reports include the following:
1. Reported Thauban, "When the Prophet (saws) would finish his prayer, he (saws) would seek Allah's forgiveness three times and then say, 'O Allah, You are the Peace, and from You is Peace. You are filled with good, O Sublime and Honorable One." (Related by Muslim, Tirmidhi, Ahmad and Ibn Majah). Waleed reported that , 'I asked al-Auza'i, 'How did the Prophet (saws) seek Allah's forgiveness?' He said, 'By saying, 'I seek Allah's forgiveness, I seek Allah's forgiveness, I seek Allah's forgiveness." (Related by Muslim)
2. One day the Prophet (saws) took Mu'adh ibn Jabal's hand and said to him, "O Mu'adh, I love you" Mu'adh responded, "May my father and mother be sacrificed for you, O Messenger of Allah (saws), I love you (too)." Then the Prophet (saws) said, "I advise you, O Mu'adh, say at the end of every prayer, 'O Allah, aid me in Your remembrance, Your thanks, and in perfecting Your worship." (Related by Ahmad, Abu Dawud, an-Nasa'i, Ibn Khuzaimah, Ibn Hibban and al-Hakim).
3. Reported Abdullah ibn Zubair, "When the Prophet (saws) made the tasleem at the end of the prayer, he (saws) would say, 'There is no god but Allah the One. There is no partner with Him, to Him belongs the Sovereignty and to Him is the Praise. He has power over all things. There is no Might or Power save with Allah. We do not worship any but Him. To Him belongs the Fortune, the Grace and the Best Praise. There is no god except Allah, and religion is sincerely for Him even if the disbelievers abhor it." (Related by Ahmad, al-Bukhari and Muslim. )
4. Al-Mughirah ibn Shu'bah reported that the Prophet (saws) would say at the end of every obligatory prayer, "There is no god except Allah, the One. There is no partner with Him. To Him is the Dominion and the Praise. He has power over all things. O Allah, none can withhold what You have conferred, nor can one confer what You have withheld. A fortune does not benefit its owner against You." (Related by Ahmad, al-Bukhari and Muslim.)
5. Abu Umamah reported that the Prophet
(saws) said, "For whoever recites the Verse of the Throne (Aayat-ul-Kursi
Surah Al-Baqarah:255) at the end of every prayer, nothing will prevent him from
'Ali reported that the Prophet (saws) said, "Whoever recites the Verse of the Throne (Aayat-ul-Kursi) at the end (after) of every obligatory prayer will be in Allah's protection until the next prayer." (Related by at-Tabarani)
6. Abu Hurairah related that the Prophet (saws) said, "Whoever glorifies Allah (by saying Subhan-Allah) after every prayer thirty-three times, and praises Allah (by saying Alhamdolillah) thirty-three times, and extols Allah's greatness (by saying Allah-o-Akbar) thirty-three times and then says, 'There is no god except Allah, the One. There is no partner with Him. His is the Dominion and His is the Praise, and He has power over all things,' is forgiven, even if his sins are as abundant as the foam of the sea." (Related by Ahmad, al-Bukhari, Muslim and Abu Dawud.)
7. The Prophet (saws) would say each of the following twenty-five times: Subhaan Allah, Al-hamdu lillah, Allahu Akbar and La ilaha illa Allah, wa ashadu anna la shareeka lahu. Lahu al-mulk wa lahu al-hamd wa huwa 'ala kulli shaian qadeer (There is no god except Allah, the One. He has no partner. His is the dominion, His is the praise, and He has power over all things.)
8. 'Abdurahman ibn Ghanim reported that the Messenger of Allah (saws) said, "Whoever says, 'There is no god but Allah, the One. There is no partner with Him. His is the Dominon and His is the Praise. In his Hand is all the good. He gives life and death, and He has power over all things,' ten times after the sunrise and dawn prayer, before turning away and lifting his leg, will have written for him for each repetition ten good deeds, and will have erased for him ten evil deeds. He will also be raised ten degress, will be protected from every plot, and he will be protected from the outcast Shaytaan. No sin will lead to his destruction except idolatry, and he will be the person with the best deeds, surpassed only by the one who does more and says more than what he has said." (Related by Ahmad and at-Tirmidhi.)
9. Muslim ibn al-Harith reported that his father said, "The Messenger of Allah (saws) said to me, 'When you pray the morning prayer, before you talk to anyone say, 'O Allah, I seek your protection from the Hell-fire' seven times. If you should die on that day, Allah will record for you protection from the Hell-fire. When you pray the sunset prayer, say before you speak to anyone, 'O Allah, I ask Paradise of You. O Allah, I seek Your protection from the Hell-fire' seven times. If you die during that night, Allah will record for you protection from the Hell-fire." (Related by Ahmad and Abu Dawud.)
10. Al-Bukhari and at-Tirmidhi related that Sa'd ibn Abu Waqqas used to teach the following words to his children, "The Messenger of Allah (saws) would seek refuge at the end of every prayer (by saying), 'O Allah, I seek refuge in you from cowardice. I seek refuge in You from miserliness, I seek refuge in You from senility, and I seek refuge in You from the trials of this world, and I seek refuge in You from the torment of the grave."
11. Abu Hatim related that the Prophet (saws) would say, upon finishing his prayers, "O Allah, make my religion, which encompasses all of my affairs, good. O Allah, make this world of mine in which I live, good. O Allah, I seek refuge in Your Pleasure from Your Anger. I seek refuge in Your Pardoning from your Vengeance. I seek refuge in You from You. None can withhold what You have conferred, no one can confer what You have withheld. No possessor of fortune can benefit from his fortune against You."
12. Abu Dawud and al-Hakim recorded that at the end of every prayer the Prophet (saws) would say, "O Allah, give me well-being in my body. O Allah, give me well-being in my hearing. O Allah, give me well-being in my seeing. O Allah, I seek refuge in You from disbelief and poverty. O Allah, I seek refuge in You from the torment of the grave. There is no god but You."
14. Ahmad, Abu Dawud and an-Nasa'i recorded from Zaid ibn Arqam that the Prophet (saws) would say at the end of his prayers, "O Allah, our Lord, Lord of everything. I bear witness that You are the Lord, You are One, You have no partner. O Allah, Our Lord, Lord of everything. I bear witness that Muhammad is Your servant and Messenger. O Allah, our Lord, the Lord of everything. I bear witness that all of your worshippers are brethren. O Allah, our Lord, Lord of everything. Make me and my family sincere to you during every moment of this life and the Hereafter. O Sublime and Honorable One, listen and respond. Allah is the Greatest of the greatest, the Light of the heavens and the earth. Allah is the Greatest of the greatest, Allah is sufficient for me and He is the Most Blessed Guardian. Allah is the Greatest of the greatest.''
15. Ahmad, Ibn Shaibah and Ibn Majah recorded from Umm Salamah, that the Prophet (saws) would say after the tasleem of the morning prayer, "O Allah, I ask of You beneficial knowledge, sufficient provisions, and acceptable deeds."
Your Comment: I
watched at them after salam before reading tasbee they will keep their right
hand on their head i mean near to the right ear and they will read Aythalkursi
and after that they will keep hand down and read tasbi and finally they do duva
Reciting the Aayat-ul-Kursi, the tasbeeh of Glorifying, Praising, and Extolling Allah Subhanah, and making supplications while sitting or in the state of prostration (except after fajr and asr prayers) is recorded amongst the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws).
There is absolutely no evidence in the authentic Sunnah that the Messenger of Allah (saws) would keep his right hand on his head near his right ear while reciting the Aayat-ul-Kursi! Thus if one thinks this posture is necessary, or is a part of the deen, or is required everytime one recites Aayat-ul-Kursi after ones prayer.then it would constitute a form of innovation in the deen of Islam.and every innovation in the deen of Islam would be an error and should be rejected by the believers.
Your Comment: Sometimes when i am doing lengthy prayers i am getting back pain and leg is swelling.
Sahih Muslim Hadith 6774 Narrated by Aisha
When Allah's Messenger (saws) occupied himself in prayer, he observed such a (long) qiyam (posture of standing in prayer) that his feet were swollen. Aisha said: O Allah's Messenger (saws) you do this (in spite of the fact) that your earlier and later sins have been pardoned for you? Thereupon, he (saws) said: O Aisha, should I not prove myself to be a thanksgiving servant (of Allah)?
Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 3837 Narrated by Abu Umamah
The Prophet (saws) said, "Nothing is dearer to Allah than two drops and two marks: a teardrop shed from fear of Allah and a drop of blood shed in Allah's Cause. Regarding the two marks, they are a mark received in Allah's Cause and one caused by observing one of the ordinances of Allah Most High."
My dear and beloved sister in Islam, the human body is created weak and fragile, and whenever it is exerted beyond its limits, it might show some signs of pain, aches, and swellings. Some bodies may ache because they have danced and partied all night long; some voices may weaken because they might have screamed and sang songs all night; etc. Then there are some bodies which ache because they have stood in worship of their Lord Most High for a long period of time, or their voices might break because tears overflow from their eyes from the fear of their Lord! All Praise is due to Allah Subhanah Alone Who has blessed and honored some amongst His believing slaves to worship Him with the devotion and adoration which is due to Him.
Allah is our witness sister, if your pain is due to your lengthy worship of your Lord Most Supreme, the joy that you receive on the Day you are called upon to collect your rewards will erase the memory of this pain forever, Insha Allah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
