|Authentic Supplications of the Prophet
About the Witr Prayer (52)
| It is reported by way of 'Ibn `Abdirrahmãn bin 'Abzee by
way of his father about the Prophet
that he used to read, in the Witr [prayer]: Sabbih 'isma rabbikal
'a`la, Qul yã 'ayyuhal kãfiroona, and Qul huwa 'allãhu
then, when he would have said salam, he would say: Subhãna
'al-maliki 'al-quddoosi, Subhãna 'al-maliki 'al-quddoosi, Subhãna
and he raised his voice with that one(75)
[meaning the voice is raised with the last one].
(73) These are chapters 87,
109, 112 of the Qur'an.
(74) Glorified is The Holy Sovereign.
(75) In a report by way of Sa`eed
bin `Abdirrahman bin 'Abzee "he would prolong it three times", and
in another report (V3. p407) in the Musnad of Imãm 'Ahmad
he would extend his voice with the last one.
'Al-`Adawee said that it was reported by Imãm 'Ahmad, page
406 of volume 3 of Musnad, and he said that it was sound.
He also said that a report by way of Sa`eed bin `Abdirrahman bin
'Abzee said: "he would prolong it three times", and in another report
found on page 407 of volume 3 of the Musnad of Imãm
'Ahmad he would extend his voice with the last one.
