Invocation to be recited while standing at Safa and Marwah


236. Whenever the Prophet (SAW) approached Mount Safa, he would recite:

'Innas-Safaa wal-Marwata min sha'aa'irillaah. 'Abda'u bimaa bada'allaahu bihi.

Surely Safa and Marwah are among the signs of Allah. I begin by that which Allah began.

He began (his Sa'y) at Mount Safa climbing it until he could see the House. He then faced the Qiblah repeating the words:

Laa 'ilaaha 'illallaah, Allaahu 'Akbar

There is none worthy of worship but Allah, and Allah is the Most Great.

Then he said:

Laa 'ilaaha 'illallaahu wahdahu laa shareeka lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu wa Huwa 'alaa kulli shay'in Qadeer, laa 'ilaaha 'illallaahu ilahaahu, 'anjaza wa'dahu, wa nasara 'abdahu, wa hazamal 'ahzaaba wahdahu.

None has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, Who has no partner, His is the dominion and His is the praise, and He is Able to do all things . None has the right to be worshipped but Allah alone, He fulfilled His Promise, He aided His slave, and He alone defeated Confederates.

Then he would ask Allah for what he liked, repeating the same thing like this three times . He did at Mount Marwah as he did at Mount Safa.
