Q: 339 -Title: Regarding the best times for making dua


Regarding best times to make Dua, I have read the following hadith:

?Narrated Abu Omamah (radiAllahu anhu): that Allah's Messenger (salallahu alayhiwasalam) was asked, O Messenger of Allah, which supplication is heard (by Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta'ala), he said the end of the night and at the end of the obligatory Salat (prayer) [at-Tirmidhi] This time is after saying 'At-tahyat' , and before making Tasleem (finishing prayer)?

I wanted to know how can we interprete that the meaning of end of obligatory salat is after saying 'At-tahyat' , and before making Tasleem (finishing prayer)? Why does it not mean after making Tasleem (finishing prayer)?


In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-sal?mu `alaykum wa-rahmatull?hi wa-barak?tuh.

The hadith in reference is:

Tuhfatul Ahwazi 2/169

The hadith states that dua after farz salat is accepted.

The hadith is general.

It also refers to dua after making salam upon the completion of the salah.

In principle the salat terminates with Taslim (giving salam).

And Allah knows best.
