Method of performance[edit]

In the Shia tradition, the prayer is performed as follows:

  2. Perform wudu
  3. Perform a 4 rakah prayer. It is the same as a regular 4 prayer except the following, which the one offering the prayer says in every rakah:
    1. Surah al-Fatiha once
    2. Surah al-Ikhlas three times
    3. Surah al-Falaq once
    4. Surah an-Nas once
  4. After the prayer, say Astaghfirullah rabbi wa atubu 'ilayh
