Salah al-Khusama

bismillah1114444

The Salah al-Khusama is done, so that the reward of it is donated to all people whom you have harmed and sinned against, so that Allah ta’ala will use the reward to satisfy their claims on the Day of Resurrection, if He so wills.In short it is a prayer to avert claims by those we have aggrieved on the Day of Judgement..  It is a 4 raka’at prayer, done at one go with one salam(Taslim) at the end, it is perfomed preferably between Zuhur prayers and Asar. It appears in al-Ghunya at-Talibi fee Tariq al-Haqq  of  Wali Allah Shaykh Abd al-Qadir al-Jilani (q.s.) which he taught to his disciples.

It is done as follows:

1st raka’at: Surah al-Fatihah 1 time, followed by Surah al-Ikhlas 11 times
2nd raka’at: Surah al-Fatihah 1 time, followed by Surah al-Ikhlas 10 times, and Surah al-Kafiroon, 3 times
3rd raka’at: Surah al-Fatihah 1 time , followed by Surah al-Ikhlas 10 times, and Surah al-Takathur  1 time.  [Surah al-Takathur is Surah number 102]
4th raka’at: Surah al-Fatihah 1 time, followed by Surah al-Ikhlas 15 times, and Ayatul Kursi 1 time.
Then donate the spiritual reward of the performance of this prayer, to all those enemies(adversaries in litigation) who will have a claim against you on Judgement Day, al-khusama, so that Allah ta’ala may satisfy their claim on the Day of Resurrection, Yawm al-Qiyamah, if Allah (s.w.t.) so Wills.

1st: On the first night of Rajab;
