Performing Tawbah Salaah

Q: How do you make the niyyat and pray the prayer of repentance. I have heard you make wudhu and pray two nafil. But what do you say in the niyyat exactly and is there anything special you say after the namaaz? Also can you make wudu for Esha namaaz, pray the repentance namaaz and then pray isha right after with the same wudhu?


A: There is nothing special. The most important thing is to show sincere remorse and beg Allah’s forgiveness, giving Him a commitment that you will ever return to this wrong.


And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
