Duas after Azaan Before Salaat

Duas to be recited After Azaan (Call to Prayer)

When you intend to perform the prayer, you may say the following:
اللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي اقَدِّمُ إِلَيْكَ مُحَمَّداً
allahumma inni uqaddimu ilayka muhammadan
O Allah, I submit Muhammad,
صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ
salla allahu `alayhi wa alihi
may Allah bless him and his Household,
بَيْنَ يَدَيْ حَاجَتِي
bayna yaday hajati
to You before mentioning my needs,
وَاتَوَجَّهُ بِهِ إِلَيْكَ
wa atawajjahu bihi ilayka
and I turn to You in his name;
فَٱجْعَلْنِي بِهِ وَجِْيهاً عِنْدَكَ
faj`alni bihi wajihan `indaka
so, (please) make me of high regard with You
فِي ٱلدُّنْيَا وَٱلآخِرَةِ
fi alddunya wal-akhirati
in this world and the Hereafter,
وَمِنَ ٱلْمُقَرَّبِينَ
wa min almuqarrabina
and of those drawn near to You,
وَٱجْعَلْ صَلاَتِي بِهِ مَقْبُولَةً
waj`al salati bihi maqbulatan
and (please) decide, in his name, my prayer to be admitted,
وَذَنْبِي بِهِ مَغْفُوراً
wa dhanbi bihi maghfuran
my sin to be forgiven,
وَدُعَائِي بِهِ مُسْتَجَاباً
wa du`a'i bihi mustajaban
and my supplication to be responded.
إِنَّكَ انْتَ ٱلْغَفُورُ ٱلرَّحِيمُ
innaka anta alghafuru alrrahimu
You are verily the All-forgiving, the All-merciful.

In between the Adhan & Iqamah one may make one sijdah & say :
.ًًًَََََََُْْسجدت لك خا ِضعا خا ِشعا ذ ِليلا
Sajadto laka Khazein Khashia Zaleel

Then sit & recite recite this dua & ask for ones wishes as wishes sought between Adhan & iqamah are not rejected
اللَّهُمَّ ٱجْعَلْ قَلْبِي بَارّاً
allahumma ij`al qalbi barran
O Allah, (please) make my heart dutiful,
وَعَيْشِي قَارّاً
wa `ayshi qarran
my livelihood delightful,
وَرِزْقِي دَارّاً
wa rizqi darran
my sustenance profuse,
وَٱجْعَلْ لِي عِنْدَ قَبْرِ رَسُولِكَ
waj`al li `inda qabri rasulika
and make for me at the tomb of Your Messenger,
صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَآلِهِ
salla allahu `alayhi wa alihi
may Allah bless him and his Household,
مُسْتَقَرّاً وَقَرَاراً
mustaqarran wa qararan
an abode and a dwelling.
You may now pray to  Almighty Allah for any thing you wish and beseech Him to grant you whatever you need, because any supplication that is said between the adhan and Iqamah will not be rejected.

After the Iqamah, you may say the following: 
اللَّهُمَّ إِلَيْكَ تَوَجَّهْتُ
allahumma ilayka tawajjahtu
O Allah, to You have I turned my face,
وَمَرْضَاتَكَ طَلَبْتُ
wa mardataka talabtu
Your pleasure have I sought,
وَثَوَابَكَ ٱبْتَغَيْتُ
wa thawabaka ibtaghaytu
for Your reward have I desired,
وَبِكَ آمَنْتُ
wa bika amantu
in You do I believe,
وَعَلَيْكَ تَوَكَّلْتُ
wa `alayka tawakkaltu
and on You do I rely.
اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
allahumma salli `ala muhammadin wa ali muhammadin
O Allah, (please) send blessings upon Muhammad and the Household of Muhammad,
وَٱفْتَحْ مَسَامِعَ قَلْبِي لِذِكْرِكَ
waftah masami`a qalbi lidhikrika
open the ears of my hearts to remembering You,
وَثَبِّتْنِي عَلَىٰ دِينِكَ وَدِينِ نَبِيِّكَ
wa thabbitni `ala dinika wa dini nabiyyika
make me stand firmly on the religion of You and Your Prophet,
وَلاَ تُزِغْ قَلْبِي بَعْدَ إِذْ هَدَيْتَنِي
wa la tuzigh qalbi ba`da idh hadaytani
make not my hearts to deviate after You have guided me aright,
وَهَبْ لِي مِنْ لَدُنْكَ رَحْمَةً
wa hab li min ladunka rahmatan
and grant me from You mercy.
إِنَّكَ انْتَ ٱلْوَهَّابُ
innaka anta alwahhabu
Surely, You are the most liberal Giver.


Imam al-Sadiq (`a) is reported to have said: Imam `Ali Amir al-Mu'minin (`a) used to say: Whoever says these words, will be added to the group of Muhammad and his Household:
Before commencing a ritual prayer, the following  prayer may be said:
اَللَّهُمَّ إِنِّي تَوَجَّهُ إِلَيْكَ بِمُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
allahumma inni atawajjahu ilayka bimuhammadin wa ali muhammadin
O Allah, I turn my face towards You in the name of Muhammad and Muhammad’s Household,
وَاقَدِّمُهُمْ بَيْنَ يَدَيْ صَلَوَاتِي
wa uqaddimuhum bayna yaday salawati
present them before You before I begin my prayers,
وَتَقَرَّبُ بِهِمْ إِلَيْكَ
wa ataqarrabu bihim ilayka
and seek nearness to You in their names.
فَٱجْعَلْنِي بِهِمْ وَجِيهاً
faj`alni bihim wajihan
So, in their names, (please) make me of high regard with You
فِي ٱلدُّنْيَا وَٱلآخِرَةِ
fi alddunya wal-akhirati
in this world and the Hereafter
وَمِنَ ٱلْمُقَرَّبِينَ
wa min almuqarrabina
and of those drawn near to You.
مَنَنْتَ عَلَيَّ بِمَعْرِفَتِهِمْ
mananta `alayya bima`rifatihim
You have endued me with the great favor of making me know them;
فَٱخْتِم لِي بِطَاعَتِهِمْ
fakhtim li bita`atihim
so, (please) seal my life with obedience to them,
وَمَعْرِفَتِهِمْ وَوِلاَيَتِهِمْ
wa ma`rifatihim wa wilayatihim
recognition of them, and loyalty to them,
فَإِنَّهَا ٱلسَّعَادَةُ
fa'innaha alssa`adatu
because this is the true happiness.
وَٱخْتِمْ لِي بِهَا
wakhtim li biha
Therefore, (please) seal my life with these things,
فَإِنَّكَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ
fa'innaka `ala kulli shay'in qadirun
for You have power over all things.
Then the following  prayer may be said:
اَللَّهُمَّ ٱجْعَلْنِي مَعَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
allahumma ij`alni ma`a muhammadin wa ali muhammadin
O Allah, (please) make me with Muhammad and Muhammad’s Household
فِي كُلِّ عَافِيَةٍ وَبَلاَءٍ
fi kulli `afiyatin wa bala'in
in every item of wellbeing and tribulation
وَٱجْعَلْنِي مَعَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِ مُحَمَّدٍ
waj`alni ma`a muhammadin wa ali muhammadin
and make me with Muhammad and Muhammad’s Household
فِي كُلِّ مَثْوىًٰ وَمُنْقَلَبٍ
fi kulli mathwan wa munqalabin
in every place of returning and place of rest.
اَللَّهُمَّ ٱجْعَلْ مَحْيَايَ مَحْيَاهُمْ
allahumma ij`al mahyaya mahyahum
O Allah, (please) make me live their lives
وَمَمَاتِي مَمَاتَهُمْ

and die their death,
وَٱجْعَلْنِي مَعَهُمْ فِي ٱلْمَوَاطِنِ كُلِّهَا
waj`alni ma`ahum fi almawatini kulliha
include me with them in all situations,
وَلاَ تُفَرِّقْ بَيْنِي وَبَيْنَهُمْ
wa la tufarriq bayni wa baynahum
and do not depart me from them.
إِنَّكَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْ‏ءٍ قَدِيرٌ
innaka `ala kulli shay'in qadirun
Verily, You have power over all things.

Safwan al-Jammal is reported to have said: I was once with Imam al-Sadiq (`a). He directed his face towards the kiblah direction (for performing a prayer) and said the following  prayer before he uttered the takbirah al-ihram statement (i.e. the commencing statement of the ritual prayers):
اَللَّهُمَّ لاَ تُؤْيِسْنِي مِنْ رَوْحِكَ
allahumma la tu'yisni min rawhika
O Allah, (please) do not make me despair of Your soothing mercy,
وَلاَ تُقَنِّطْنِي مِنْ رَحْمَتِكَ
wa la tuqannitni min rahmatika
do not make me lose hope of Your mercy,
وَلاَ تُؤْمِنِّي مَكْرَكَ
wa la tu'minni makraka
and do not make me feel secure against Your plans,
فَإِنَّهُ لاَ يَامَنُ مَكْرَ ٱللَّهِ إِلاَّ ٱلْقَوْمُ ٱلْخَاسِرُونَ
fa'innahu la ya'manu makra allahi illa alqawmu alkhasiruna
for none feels secure against Allah’s plans except the losing people.

In al-Da-aaem: It has been narrated to us from Ali ibn al-Husain (a.s.) that when the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.) heard the Azan, he would repeat what the moazzin said, and when he said:
حَيَّ عَلَي الصَّلَاةِ حَيَّ عَلَي الْفَلَاحِ حَيَّ عَلٰی خَیْرِ الْعَمَلِ
hayya a’las salaate hayya a’lal falaahe hayya a’laa khayril a’male
Hurry to the prayer. Hurry to success. Hurry to the best of actions,he (s.a.w.a.) said:
لَا حَوْلَ وَ لَا قُوَّةَ اِلَّا بِاللهِ.
laa hawla wa laa quwwata illaa billaahe.
There is no power and no might but by (the will of) Allah.
And when the call to prayer was completed, he (s.a.w.a.) said:
اَللّٰهُمَّ رَبَّ هٰذِهِ الدَّعْوَةِ التَّامَّةِ وَ الصَّلَاةِ الْقَائِمَةِ اَعْطِ مُحَمَّدًا سُؤْلَهٗ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَ بَلِّغْهُ الدَّرَجَةَ الْوَسِيْلَةَ مِنَ الْجَنَّةِ وَ تَقَبَّلْ شَفَاعَتَهٗ فِيْ اُمَّتِهٖ.
allaahumma rabba haazehid da’watit taammate was salaatil qaaemate a-a’te mohammadan soalahu yawmal qeyaamate wa ballighhud darajatal waseelata menal jannate wa taqabbal shafaa-a’tahu fee ummatehi.
O Allah! Lord of this perfect call and established prayer, grant Muhammad his request on the Day of Judgment, and raise his statusto the means of reaching paradise and accept his intercession for his Ummah.[1]
[1] Da-aaem al-Islam, vol. 1, p. 145; Fayz al-Qadeer, vol. 5, p. 143

You may now prepare yourself for performing the prayer.
You must have heart presence and pay attention to your prayer, by considering the humiliation of your situation and the all-greatness and majesty of your Lord to whom you are talking in your prayer.
Behave as is you can see Him in front of you and be ashamed of talking to Him with your tongue while your heart is preoccupied by another thing. You may then stand up with respect and reverence, putting your two hands on your thighs opposite to your knees.
Separate between your two feet in an amount of three fingers up to one span. Cast your sight on the place of your prostration. You may then intend to perform this Dawn Prayer for seeking nearness to Allah the Exalted.
Then, say the Takbirat al-Ihram statement (saying: allahu-akbar ‘Allah is the Greatest’; the introductory statement to prayer). It is recommended to add statements of Takbir (i.e. professing Almighty Allah being the greatest) to it, at each one of which, you may raise your hands to reach the level of the lower part of your ear, turning the palms of your hand towards the kiblah direction.
Try to make all your fingers, except the thumb, stick to one another, but not open. You may now say the supplications of the Takbir statements, which are as follows:
After the third Takbir statement, you may say the following:
اللَّهُمَّ انْتَ ٱلْمَلِكُ ٱلْحَقُّ ٱلْمُبِينُ
allahumma anta almaliku alhaqqu almubinu
O Allah, You are verily the King and the Manifest Truth.
لاَ إِلٰهَ إِلاََّ انْتَ سُبْحَانَكَ
la ilaha illa anta subhanaka
There is no god save You. All glory be to You.
إِنِّي ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِي
inni zalamtu nafsi
I have wronged myself;
فَٱغْفِرْ لِي ذَنْبِي
faghfir li dhanbi
so, (please) forgive my sin.
إِنَّهُ لاَ يَغْفِرُ ٱلذُّنُوبَ إِلاََّ انْتَ
innahu la yaghfiru aldhdhunuba illa anta
Verily, none can forgive sins save You.
After the fifth Takbir statement, you may say the following:
لَبَّيْكَ وَسَعْدَيْكَ
labbayka wa sa`dayka
Here I am responding to You and here I am trying to please You.
وَٱلْخَيْرُ فِي يَدَيْكَ
walkhayru fi yadayka
All goodness is at Your Hand.
وَٱلشَّرُّ لَيْسَ إِلَيْكَ
walshsharru laysa ilayka
Evil is never ascribed to You.
وَٱلْمَهْدِيُّ مَنْ هَدَيْتَ
walmahdiyyu man hadayta
A true guided is he whom You guide.
عَبْدُكَ وَٱبْنُ عَبْدَيْكَ
`abduka wabnu `abdayka
I, Your servant and the son of Your two servants,
ذَلِيلٌ بَيْنَ يَدَيْكَ
dhalilun bayna yadayka
am standing in submission before You,
مِنْكَ وَبِكَ وَلَكَ وَإِلَيْكَ
minka wa bika wa laka wa ilayka
and I am from You, through You, to You, and for You.
لاَ مَلْجَا وَلاَ مَنْجَىٰ
la malja'a wa la manja
There is neither haven nor shelter
وَلاَ مَفَرَّ مِنْكَ إِلاََّ إِلَيْكَ
wa la mafarra minka illa ilayka
nor escape from You except with You.
سُبْحَانَكَ وَحَنَانَيْكَ
subhanaka wa hananayka
All glory be to You; I am seeking Your kindness.
تَبَارَكْتَ وَتَعَالَيْتَ
tabarakta wa ta`alayta
Blessed You are and Exalted You are.
سُبْحَانَكَ رَبَّ ٱلْبَيْتِ ٱلْحَرَامِ
subhanaka rabba albayti alharami
All glory be to You, O Lord of the Sacred House.

After the seventh Takbir statement, you may say the following:
وَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِيَ لِلَّذِي فَطَرَ ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ وَٱلارْضَ
wajjahtu wajhiya lilladhi fatara alssamawati wal-arda
I have turned myself to Him Who originated the heavens and the earth,
عَالِمِ ٱلْغَيْبِ وَٱلشَّهَادَةِ
`alimi alghaybi walshshahadati
the Knower of the unseen and the witnessed,
حَنِيفاً مُسْلِماً
hanifan musliman
[and I am] upright and Muslim
وَمَا انَا مِنَ ٱلْمُشْرِكِينَ
wa ma ana min almushrikina
and I am not of the polytheists.
إِنَّ صَلاَتِي وَنُسُكِي
inna salati wa nusuki
Surely, my prayer, my sacrifice,
وَمَحْيَايَ وَمَمَاتِي
wa mahyaya wa mamati
my life, and my death
لِلَّهِ رَبِّ ٱلْعَالَمِينَ
lillahi rabbi al`alamina
are (all) for Allah, the Lord of the worlds.
لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ
la sharika lahu
No associate has He;
وَبِذٰلِكَ امِرْتُ
wa bidhalika umirtu
and this am I commanded,
 وَانَا مِنَ ٱلْمُسْلِمِينَ
wa ana min almuslimina
and I am of those who submit.

Before you begin with the recitation (qira'ah: reciting certain Qur'anic chapters in the prayers), you may say the statement of seeking protection (isti`adhah) in a low tone:
اعُوذُ بِٱللَّهِ مِنَ ٱلشَّيْطَانِ ٱلرَّجِيمِ
a`udhu billahi min alshshaytani alrrajimi
I pray Allah’s protection from Satan, the accursed.
