Dua For Salatul-Hajaat

Pronunciation: Laaa i-la-ha il-lal-la-hul-Ha-leemul kareem. Sub-hanallahi rabi-bil `arshil `azeem. Wal-Hamdu-lil-la-hi rabbil-`Alameen. As'aluka muji-bati rah-ma-tik, wa `a-zaaa 'i-ma mag-fira-tik, wal gha-nee-mata min kul-li birr, was-sa-la-mata min kul-li ithm. La ta-da` li dhan-ban il-la gha-far-tah, wala ham-man il-la far-raj-tah, wala day-nan il-la ka-day-tah, wala hajatam-min ha-wa i-jid-dunya wal-aaa-khi-rah. he-ya laka ri-dan il-la qa-day-taha yaaa ar-ha-mar-ra-he-meen.

Meaning: “Whenever a matter became serious, the Prophet (PBUH) turned to salah”. (Abu Dawood)

It means that one can plea to God at any time asking for His Help, for He is the Most Merciful and Beneficent. Among all voluntary appeals to Allah, there is also one important prayer, which is called Salat ul Hajat. It is observed for the purpose of completion of one`s particular Haajah (need). It is actually not similar to any other prescribed Namaz, but it is just one of the ways to beg the Almighty for one`s rightful wish.

"He who makes wudu, and does it properly, then prays two rak`ats, Allah will grant him whatever he may pray for, sooner or later”. (Ahmad)

Format Of Salat-ul-Hajat
The procedure of Salaat-ul-Hajat is as follows:
1. Make Wudhu
2. Perform two rakats - intention of Nafl Salat
3. After the Salat, reciting the praises of Allah SWT and Durood Shareef.
4. Reciting as much amount of Tasbeeh – and Durood Shareef as possible.
5. In the end, making a keen Dua e Hajat for the fulfillment of one`s requirement or obscurity.
