of the Prophet |
When the Messenger of Allah would start his Salãt he would be silent
for a moment before beginning to recite. So Abu Hurayrata said: O'
Messenger of Allah! With my father, and my mother [I would sacrifice
them for you], you know your silence between the takheer and the
recitation, what are you saying [during it]? He said: I say:
'Allãhumma bã`id baynee wa bayna khatãyãya kamã bã`adta bayna
'almashriqi wal-maghribi, 'allãhumma naqqinee min khatayãyã kamã
yunaqqã 'ath-thawbul 'abyadhu min 'addanasi, 'allãhumma 'ighsilnee
min khatãyãya bith-thalji wal-mã'i wal-baradi(88)
(88) O' my 'ilãh make distance between myself and my wrong-doings as You have made distance between the East and the West, O' my 'ilah purify me of my wrong-doings as a white garment is purified of dirt, O' my 'ilãh wash me of my wrong-doings with snow, water, and hail.
