Opening & Closing Dua

Suggestions when beginning a speech
It is desirable that any speech should begin with the praise (al-hamd) of Allah. It is also desirable to
send salawaat upon the Prophet saws, and some form of istighfaar (asking the forgiveness of Allah).
Innalhamda lillahee, nahmaduhu wa nasta'eenuhu wa nastaghfiruhu, wa na'oodhu billaahi min
shuroori anfusinaa wa min sayyiaati a'maalinaa. Mainyah dihillaahu falaa mudillilahu, wa mainyudlil
falaa haadiya lah.
"Alhumdulillah. Indeed, all praise is due to Allah. We praise Him and seek His Help and forgiveness.
We seek refuge in Allah from our souls' evils and our wrong doings. He whom Allah guides, no one
can misguide; and he whom He misguides, no one can guide."
(Ibn Mas'ud and Ibn 'Abbas in Muslim, Abu Dawud, an-Nasai and others)
Wa ashhadu anlaa ilaaha illalaahu, wahdahu laashareeka lahu, wa ash hadu anna muhammadan
'abduhu wa rasooluh.
"I bear witness that there is no god except Allah- alone without any partners. And I bear witness that
Muhammad is His 'abd (servant) and Messenger."
Allahumma salli 'alaa muhammadinwa 'alaa aali muhammadinwa 'alaa aali muhammadin kamaa
sallayta 'alaa aali ibraaheema innaka hameedumajeed. Allahumma baarik 'alaa muhammadinwa 'alaa
aali muhammadin kamaa baarakta 'alaa aali ibraaheema wa 'alaa aali ibraheema innaka hameedum
majeed.
"O Allah, send prayers upon Muhammad and the followers of Muhammad, just as You sent prayers
upon Ibraheem and upon the followers of Ibraheem. Verily you are full of praise and majesty. O
Allaah, send blessings upon Muhammad and upon the family of Muhammad, just as You sent
blessings upon Ibraheem and upon the family of Ibraheem. Verily, You are full of praise and majesty."
( Al-Bukhari with Al-Fath)
