How to Perform the Subh or Fajr (Dawn) Prayer


The two rak^ahs of the Fajr (or Subh) prayer are performed exactly like the first two rak^ahs of the ^Isha prayer, but with the intention of performing the obligatory Fajr (or Subh) prayer.
After the second sujud of the second rak^ah, do steps 14 and 15. Also, after saying Rabbana lakal-hamd in the I^tidal (step 7) of the second rak^ah, it is recommended to say the Qunut supplication (see Notes) at least as loud as you can hear yourself. It is recommended to raise the hands with palms upward, as in making any supplication.
