Dua after salah – Prayer is the request of a servant to Allah SWT as the only place to pray. God is the Lord of the universe who made all things. In Islam taught to pray as proof that we are servants who really need God as creator.
Pray to God there are manners and certain times. Actually, praying knows no time, anytime we can pray to God except in a dirty place if spoken aloud.
In Islam, we are taught to pray at the best times of prayer. One of the best times for dua is after prayer or salah. Dua after salah is nearer for Allah to accept. Salah is a special form of worship that proves that we are slaves, and that time is a very close time for a servant to his Lord. So, dua after prayer is the best and effective form of prayer.
Apart from prayers, the best prayers can also be offered when we see the Kaaba, when it rains, when the last third of the night, when the call to salah (azan), when the first night of the month of Rajab, in the night of nisfu sya’ban, when the war raged, and Friday night ‘ at or friday.
So, dua after prayer is one form of prayer that is received in the sight of Allah. So, don’t forget to dua to Allah after performing the prayer obligations.

Dua After Salah
بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيْمِ. اَلْحَمْدُ ِللهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ. حَمْدًا يُوَافِىْ نِعَمَهُ وَيُكَافِئُ مَزِيْدَهُ. يَارَبَّنَالَكَ الْحَمْدُ وَلَكَ الشُّكْرُ كَمَا يَنْبَغِىْ لِجَلاَلِ وَجْهِكَ وَعَظِيْمِ سُلْطَانِكَ
“In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Praise be to Allah the Lord of the Universe. Praise is proportional to His blessings and guarantees the addition. O our Lord, to you all praise, and to you are all thanks, as is appropriate for the nobility of your substance and the majesty of your power.”
اَللهُمَّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلى آلِ سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ. صَلاَةً تُنْجِيْنَابِهَا مِنْ جَمِيْعِ اْلاَهْوَالِ وَاْلآفَاتِ. وَتَقْضِىْ لَنَابِهَا جَمِيْعَ الْحَاجَاتِ.وَتُطَهِّرُنَا بِهَا مِنْ جَمِيْعِ السَّيِّئَاتِ. وَتَرْفَعُنَابِهَا عِنْدَكَ اَعْلَى الدَّرَجَاتِ. وَتُبَلِّغُنَا بِهَا اَقْصَى الْغَيَاتِ مِنْ جَمِيْعِ الْخَيْرَاتِ فِى الْحَيَاةِ وَبَعْدَ الْمَمَاتِ اِنَّهُ سَمِيْعٌ قَرِيْبٌ مُجِيْبُ الدَّعَوَاتِ وَيَاقَاضِىَ الْحَاجَاتِ.
“O Allah, bestow mercy and well-being to our prince, the Prophet Muhammad and his family, that is a mercy that can save us from all fears and diseases, that can meet all our needs, which can purify ourselves from all evil, which can lift our ranks to the highest degree on Your side, and can deliver us to the maximum goal of all good, both during life and after death. Actually, He (Allah) is All-Hearing, Near, All-Allow All prayers and supplications. O Essence Who Fills all the needs of His Servant.”
.اَللهُمَّ اِنَّا نَسْئَلُكَ سَلاَمَةً فِى الدِّيْنِ وَالدُّنْيَا وَاْلآخِرَةِ وَعَافِيَةً فِى الْجَسَدِ وَصِحَّةً فِى الْبَدَنِ وَزِيَادَةً فِى الْعِلْمِ وَبَرَكَةً فِى الرِّزْقِ وَتَوْبَةً قَبْلَ الْمَوْتِ وَرَحْمَةً عِنْدَ الْمَوْتِ وَمَغْفِرَةً بَعْدَ الْمَوْتِ. اَللهُمَّ هَوِّنْ عَلَيْنَا فِىْ سَكَرَاتِ الْمَوْتِ وَالنَّجَاةَ مِنَ النَّارِ وَالْعَفْوَ عِنْدَ الْحِسَابِ.

O Allah! Make it easier for us to face the deadly death, (Give us) salvation from the fires of hell, and forgiveness at the time of reckoning.”
.اَللهُمَّ اِنَّا نَعُوْذُبِكَ مِنَ الْعَجْزِ وَالْكَسَلِ وَالْبُخْلِ وَالْهَرَمِ وَعَذَابِ الْقَبْرِ
“O Allah! Indeed, we take refuge in You from the nature of the weak, lazy, miserly, senile and from the grave doom”.
اَللهُمَّ اِنَّا نَعُوْذُبِكَ مِنْ عِلْمٍ لاَيَنْفَعُ وَمِنْ قَلْبٍ لاَيَخْشَعُ وَمِنْ نَفْسٍ لاَتَشْبَعُ وَمِنْ دَعْوَةٍ لاَيُسْتَجَابُ لَهَا.
“O Allah! Surely we take refuge in You from useless knowledge, from an ungodly heart ‘, from an unsatisfied soul, and from unanswered dua.”
.رَبَّنَااغْفِرْلَنَا ذُنُوْبَنَا وَلِوَالِدِيْنَا وَلِمَشَايِخِنَا وَلِمُعَلِّمِيْنَا وَلِمَنْ لَهُ حَقٌّ عَلَيْنَا وَلِمَنْ اَحَبَّ وَاَحْسَنَ اِلَيْنَا وَلِكَافَّةِ الْمُسْلِمِيْنَ اَجْمَعِيْنَ
“O Allah, forgive our sins, the sins of our parents, our elders, our teachers, those who have the right to us, those who love and do good to us, and all Muslims”.
