Niyyat

اُصَلِّيْ فَرْضَ صَلوةِ الْـمَغْرِبِ ثَلاَثَ رَكَعَاتٍ لِلهِ عَزَّوَجَلَّ اَدَاءً مُسْتَقْبِلَ|مُسْتَقْبِلَةَ الْكَعْبَةِ الـْحَـرامِ اَللهُ اَكْبَرُ.

I have turned my face towards the creator of the skies and earth. – and I am a Muslim believing in one Allah – toward the One who is the Creator of the skies and the earth, and I am not one of those who do shirk in Allah (consider Allah to have a partner) – Truly, my namaaz, my ibaadat, my living, my dying is for Allah, who is the Lord of all the worlds. He has no shareek (partner), this is what I have been commanded to do, and I am a Muslim. I practice the faith of Ibrahim Nabi (who was the ancestor of Rasulullah), the Deen of Mohammed (Rasulullah), the walaayat (spiritual love) of Maulana Ali and I dissociate myself completely from their tyrannical enemies.

Pray after Niyyat in Farizat Namaaz

وَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِيَ لِلَّذِيْ فَطَرَ السَّموَاتِ وَالاَرْضَ حَنِيْفًا مُسْلِمًا| حَنِيْفَةً مُسْلِمَةً وَمَا اَنَا مِنَ المُشْرِكِينَ اِنَّ صَلوتِيْ وَنُسُكِيْ وَمَحْيَايَ وَمَمَاتِيْ لِلهِ رَبِّ اْلعَالَمِيْـنَ لَا شَرِيْكَ لَهُ وَبِذَالِكَ اُمِرْتُ وَاَناَ مِنَ المُسْلِمِيْـنَ عَلى مِلَّةِ اِبْرَاهِيْمَ وَدِيْنِ مُحَمَّدٍ وَوَلَايَةِ عَلِيٍّ وَاَبْـرَأُ اِلَيْهِ مِنْ اَعْدَائِهِ الظَّالمِيْـنَ اَعُوذُ بِاللهِ السَّمِيْعِ الْعَلِيْمِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيْمِ
