Sunnah al-Muthlaq for 'Ashura
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
This is a sunnah al-muthlaq from the Futuhat al-Haqqaniyyah of Shaykh ‘Adnan Qabbani.
On the eve of ‘Ashura, the sunnah nafl is to offer four raka’at: In every rak’ah, after Surah al-Fatihah, recite Ayat al-Kursi once and Surah al-Ikhlasw three times. After completing this swalah, recite Surah al-Ikhlasw a hundred times. It is said, Allah (s.w.t.) will Purify such a person from all their sins and Grant them endless bounties and blessings in Paradise.
The sunnah swalah of ‘Ashura is four raka’at. After Surah al-Fatihah in each rak'ah, recite Surah al-Ikhlasw eleven times. The intention is the sunnah yawm al-‘ashura in commemoration of ‘Ashura and is normally done at the time of dhuha’. It is said that whomever does so, Allah (s.w.t.) Forgives his sins of fifty years, and Builds for him a pulpit from light.
