Prayer of Signs of God / Namaaz-e-Ayat / Salaat al-Ayat

 Conducting Ayat Prayer

This prayer is Wajib, at the time of the manifestation of any of the 'Signs of God', which show Allah's Power and Glory, such as Earthquakes, total (or nearly total) eclopses of the Sun and the Moon, severe Tornadoes, Hurricanes, and similar Acts of God which create 'fear' among most people.

There are two methods one can perform the prayer, 


The prayer consists of ten Rukoos and four Sajdajs, as follows:
    1) Perform Niyyat, and recite Takbirat-ul-Ehram
    2) Recite Surah al-Fatiha, followed by any other complete Surahs.

After making niyyat to offer Namaz-e-Ayaat, a person is allowed to say takbir and recite Surah al-Hamd and then divide the verses of the other Surah into five parts, and recite one verse or more or less, and thereafter perform the Ruku.

He should then stand up and recite another part of the Surah (without reciting Surah al-Hamd) and then perform another Ruku. He should repeat this action, and finish that Surah before performing the fifth Ruku.

For example,

  1. He may say: Bismillahir Rahmanir Rahim with the niyyat of reciting Surah al-Ikhlas, and perform the Ruku.
  2. He should then stand up and say, Qul huwallahu Ahad, and perform another Ruku.
  3. He should then stand up and say, Allahus Samad, and perform the third Ruku.
  4. Thereafter he should stand up again and say, Lam yalid walam yulad, and perform the fourth Ruku.
  5. Then he should stand up again and say, Walam yakullahu Kufuwan ahad, and then perform two Sajdah and then rise for the second Rak'at, the same way as the first Rak'at.
  6. At the end, he should recite tashahhud and Salam after the two Sajdah.
