Namaz-e-Tawbah or Salah-e-tawbah; (Prayer of Repentance) is a Muslim prayer consisting of 4 rakah, or units.
Method of performance
In the Shia tradition, the prayer is performed as follows:
- Perform Ghusl by way of Irtimasi (submerging the whole body in water, either in stages or at once) or by way of Tartibi (wiping the body with water).
- Perform wudu
- 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:
- After the prayer, say Astaghfirullah rabbi wa atubu 'ilayh
- After saying the above, say: Laa hawla wa laa quwwata illa billaahil a'liyyil a'zeem. Then say: Yaa A'zeezo yaa ghaffooro ighfirli zunoobi wa zunooba Jamee'il mo-mineena wal mo-minaate. Fa innahu laa yaghfiro illa ant.
