(i) come to prayer, come to success

instead, one should say:
(ii) There is no might nor power except with Allah.

 

 

(22)One repeats just as the mu-aththin except in

Ĥayya `Alá Aş-Şalati

(or) Ĥayya `Alá Al-Falāĥi. say  Lā Ĥawla Wa Lā Qūwata 'Illā Bil-Lh .

 

  : (22)

(ii) .

(23) Immediately following the declaration of faith called by the mu-aththin, one says:
 

And I too bear witness that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah, alone, without partner, and that Muhammad is His salve and Messenger. I am pleased with Allah as a Lord, and Muhammad as a Messenger and Islam as a religion.

 

(23) Wa 'Anā 'Ash/hadu 'An Lā 'Ilāha 'Illā All-Lhu, Waĥdahu Lā Sharīkka Lahu, Wa 'Anna Muĥammadāan `Abduhu Wa Rasūluhu, Rađītu Billāhhi Rabbāa , Wa Bimuĥammadin Rasūlāan, Wa Bil-'Islāmi Dīnā.an

(25) O Allah, Owner of this perfect call and Owner of this prayer to be performed, bestow upon Muhammad al-waseelah and al-fadeelah and send him upon a praised platform which You have promised him. Verily, You never fail in Your promise.

al-waseelah: A station in paradise.

 al-fadeelah: A rank above the rest of creation.

praised platform: One in which all of creation will praise him on, in order to bring about the account quickly and be relieved from the lengthy standing or the role of intercession.
