Essential Prophetic Supplications

Upon entering the mosque


The Beloved of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) would say the following when entering the mosque:

Allahumma ’ftah lee abwaba rahmatik

‘O Allah, open for me the doors of Your Mercy’

(Related by Ibn Maja and others)

[a recording of this is attached]

Note that the sunna is to enter the mosque (and all noble places) with one’s right foot, and to exit with one’s left foot.
