Lunar Eclipse, and the Prayer of the Eclipse

بسم الله والصلاة والسلام على رسول الله

PS Update: The night of 27/28th July witnessed the longest Lunar eclipse of this century.

Tonight (27th/28th July) there will be a total Lunar Eclipse, InshaaAllah. Here are some details: 

These are the times we are warned about the consequences of this world, the coming of the Hereafter so that man fears Allah, develops God-consciousness, seeks forgiveness from Him, gives charity and makes lots of duaas.

Also, during eclipses, it is recommended for a Muslim to make lots of Tasbeeh (saying Subhanallaah), Tahleel (Saying Laa ilaaha il-lal-laah) and Tahmeed (saying Alhamdulillaah)

How is Salatul Kusoof performed?

This prayer is preferably to be performed in Congregation. In case, you don’t find any congregation in your locality, it is fine even if you offer this Prayer individually by yourself.  

1. Before offering the Salah, one must ensure the taharah, purity of the body, the clothes and the place.
2. Make Wudhu (ablution)
3. Face the Qiblah
4. Make the intention in your heart that you are praying Salatul Kusoof.
5. Pronounce the Takbir Tahreema (that is, Allahu Akbar)
6. Recite the Surat-ul-Fatihah and then a Surah, preferably a long surah.
7. Then perform a long Ruku.
8. Rise from the Ruku and say “Samee Allahu Liman Hamidah, Rabbanaa walakal Hamd.”
9. Again recite Surah al Fatihah and then a Surah, preferably a long Surah but shorter than the one recited before.
10. Then go for the Second Ruku. This Ruku must be long but shorter than the first one.
11. Rise from the second Ruku, and say Sami’Allahu Liman Hamidah, Rabbanaa walakal Hamd.
12. Perform two Sajdahs, one after the other as in normal salah but each sajdah must be of lengthy duration.
13. One Rakah is over. Then get up and perform the second Rakah following the same procedure as done in the first Rakah.
14. After performing two sajdahs of the second rakah, sit for the Tashahhud and end the Salah with Tasleem. (that is by saying Assalamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah first on the right, and then on the left)
