What dua can I read after attahiyat and durood and before Salam, in the last sitting of Salah?

In hadith I found that Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) used to recite a lot of dua, hamd, and sana in the last sitting of salah. I need the duas from Sahih Hadith.

  • Do you mean before the Salam or after? i guess at least for one of both we have had that question before! – Medi1Saif Nov 23 '15 at 11:56
  • @MediSaif the dua is for within salah. After Attahiyat, we say durood, as far I know prophet Muhammad (PBUH) used to do some extra hamd and thana before the salam. I want to know the duas from Authentic Hadith. – blueray Nov 24 '15 at 12:21

You can find those dua's in the booklet called hisn al-Muslim (hisnul muslim) by Sa'id ibn Ali ibn Wahf al-Qahtany سعيد بن علي بن وهف القحطاني Chapter 24 - الدعاء بعد التشهد الأخير وقبل السلام:

  • About the same dua' with a slightly difference #55 and #56 both are also in sahih al-Bukhari Here's a transliteration of #56:

Allahumma inni audhu bika min 'adhabi l-qabri wa 'audhu bika min fitnatil-masihi d-dajjal, wa 'audhu bika min fitnati l-mahya walmamati, Allahumma inni 'audhu bika min al-ma'thami wal-maghram

a transliteration of #55 is here - #57 also in both Sahih books

Alahumma inni zalamtu nafsi zulman kathiran wa la yaghfiru a-dhunub illa anta faghfirli maghfiratan min 'indika warhamni innaka anta l-Ghafurur-Rahim

Allahum-maghfir li ma qaddamtu wa ma akh-khartu, wa ma asrartu, wa ma a'lantu, wa ma asraftu, wa ma Anta a'lamu bihi minni. Antal-Muqqadimu, wa Antal-Mu'akh-khiru. La ilaha illa Anta

  • #59 sahih in Sunan Abi Dawod and also to be find in Sunan an-Nasa'i, some scholars say it should be said after the salam, some say before or after and some tend to before!

Allahumma a'inni 'ala dhikrika wa shukrika, wa husni 'ibadatika

  • #60 this is also said before and after salam

Alla-humma inni a'udhu bika minal-jubni wal- bukhl, wa a'udhu bika min an uradda ila ardhalil-'umur, wa a'udhu bika min fitnatid-dunya, wa a'udhu bika min fitnatil-qabr

  • #61 it should also be in sunan ibn Majah!

Allahuma inni as-aluka l-Jannah wa a'udu bika mina n-nar

  • #62 also in Musnad al Imam Ahmad

Allahumma bi 'ilmika l-ghaiba wa qudratika 'alal-khalqi ahini ma 'alimtal-hayata khairan li, wa tawaffani idha 'alimtal-wafata khairan li. Allahumma as'aluka khashyataka fil-ghaibi wash-shahadati wa as'aluka kalimatal haqui fir-rida'i wal ghadab, wa as'aluka l-qasda fil faqr wal-ghina, wa as'aluka na'iman la yanfadu wa as'aluka qurrata 'ainan la tanqati'u wa as'alukar-rida'i ba'dal-qada'i wa as'aluka bardal 'aishi ba'dal-mawti, wa as'aluka ladhata n-nazari ila wajhika wash-shawqa ila liqa'ika fi (or in an other narration min) ghayri darraa'in muddirra wa la fitnatin mudillatin, Allahumma zayyina bi zinatil-imani waj'alna hudatan muhtadin

  • #63 also in sunan abi Dawod and Musnad Ahmad

Allahumma inni as'aluka ya Allah! Bi-annaka l-Wahidul-Ahadu-Samad, alladhi lam yalid wa lam yowled, wa lam yakun lahu kufu'an (or if recited according the language of hafs kufuwan) ahad, an taghfirali dhunubi, innaka antal-Ghafurur-Rahim

  • #64 this dua' was also mentioned in all the Sunan books

Allahumma inni as'aluka bi-anna lakal-hamd, lailaha illa ant, al-mannanu badi'us-samawati wal-ard, ya dhal-jalali wal-ikram! Ya hayyu ya qayyum! Inni as'aluka al Jannah wa a'udu bika mina n-nar

  • #65 is a dua' which includes parts of #63 and #64 and is quoted in Musnad Ahmad, sunan ibn Majah and sunan at-Tirmidhi

Allāhumma inni as'aluka bi annī ashhadu annaka antallah, la ilaha illa ant, al-ahadu-s-Samad, alladhi lam yalid wa lam yulad, wa lam yakun lahu kufuwan ahad


Note i have changed the transliteration or added some additions in it when they were different then in my reference or lack some words.

And Allah knows best!
