Ruling on Making Duaa after the Obligatory Prayer


What is the ruling of making duaa (supplication) immediately after obligatory prayer?


There are several hadiths from the Prophet (peace be upon him) regarding the duaa (supplication) that he used to make after his prayers. Therefore, there is nothing wrong in making supplication after offering prayer rather it is recommended on condition that it is made in private not collectively.

Abu Umamah narrated, “It was said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, which supplication is most likely to be listened to?’ He said: ‘(During) the last part of the night, and at the end of the obligatory prayers.’” (At-Tirmidhi)

Thauban (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated, “Whenever the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) concluded his prayer, he would beg forgiveness from Allah thrice and then would recite: “Allahumma Antas- Salamu, wa minkas-salamu, tabarakta ya Dhal-Jalali wal-Ikram (O Allah, You are the Grantor of security, and security comes from You. You are Blessing, O You Who have majesty and nobility)!” (Muslim)
