How does one start the second rakat?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Qibla.com

Answered by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani

I have to ask that, lets say if you have to pray 4 rakahs of Asr, in the first rakah, you begin with subhana kala huma wa bi hamdika wata bara kasmuka…….. and after that you say, aadu billah hi mini shaytan…. and then bismillah, so for the second rakah, do you have to say audhu billah and bismillah both or nothing? Since you already said in the beginning , should it be repeated? Someone told me you just say bismillah ….. in the second , third , and four rakat, (taking example of Asr). What is the right way?

Answer:
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Walaikum assalam wa rahmatullah,

In the second rakat, you only begin with bismillah (if you are leading or praying alone).

The opening supplication, and seeking of refuge are both only sunnas for the first rakat. [Nur al-Idah, Tanwir]

وَلَوْ سَلَّمَ سَاهِيًا إنْ بَعْدَ إمَامِهِ لَزِمَهُ السَّهْوُ وَإِلَّا لَاس: هل نأتي بالثناء والتعوّذ مع البسملة في كل ركعة؟  ج: لا: إنما يُسنّ الثناء والتعوّذ في الركعة الأولى. أما البسملة فتسنّ قبل الفاتحة لمن عليه قراءتها كما في التنوير و الدر و نور الإضاح.  في تنوير الأبصار للتمرتاشي عند بيان سنن الصلاة: ( وَالثَّنَاءِ وَالتَّعَوُّذِ وَالتَّسْمِيَةِ وَالتَّأْمِينِ سِرًّا )   فيها مع شرح الحصكفي: ( وَ ) كَمَا تَعَوَّذَ ( سَمَّى ) غَيْرُ الْمُؤْتَمِّ بِلَفْظِ الْبَسْمَلَةِ , لَا مُطْلَقُ الذِّكْرِ كَمَا فِي ذَبِيحَةٍ وَوُضُوءٍ ( سِرًّا فِي ) أَوَّلِ ( كُلِّ رَكْعَةٍ )
