Salat of Salman al-Farsi (Arabic: صلاة سلمان الفارسي) is a prayer prescribed to Salman al-Farsi by Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). It is highly recommended that the prayer be performed on the first, middle and last day of Rajab.[1] The Prophet had informed Salman in regards to the prayer as follow:

يا سلمان ما من مؤمن و لا مؤمنة صلى في هذا الشهر ثلاثين ركعة و هو شهر رجب يقرأ في كل ركعة فاتحة الكتاب مرة و قل هو الله أحد ثلاث مرات و قل يا أيها الكافرون ثلاث مرات إلا محا الله تعالى عنه كل ذنب عمله في صغره و كبره و أعطاه الله سبحانه من الأجر كمن صام ذلك الشهر كله و كتب عند الله من المصلين إلى السنة المقبلة و رفع له في كل يوم عمل شهيد من شهداء بدر و كتب له بصوم كل يوم يصومه منه عبادة سنة و رفع له ألف درجة فإن صام الشهر كله أنجاه الله عز و جل من النار و أوجب له الجنة يا سلمان أخبرني بذلك جبرئيل ع و قال يا محمد هذه علامة بينكم و بين المنافقين لأن المنافقين لا يصلون ذلك.


O Salman, there is no mu'min (true believer) and mu'minah (true believing female) who performs 30 Raka'ah in the month of Rajab and in each Raka'ah recites Surah al-Fatiha once, Surah al-Ikhlaas 3 times and Surah al-Kafiroon 3 times that Allah does forgive them their sins and bestows rewards upon them as upon a person who has fasted a whole month. He becomes among those who will be steadfast in their salah in the year which is to come. For him the deeds of the day is equal to that of the martyr. He will be raised with the Martyrs of the Holy Battle of Badr. For him is written for the fast of each day, one year's worship. His station is raised 1000 times higher.

If he fasts the entire month of Rajab and he performs this salaat, Allah will give him salvation from the Hell Fire, make Wajib for him, His Paradise and bestow His Nearness upon him. Jibreel informed me, O Muhammad this is the sign between you and the polytheists and the hypocrites because a hypocrite does not perform this salaat.

Method

First Day of Rajab

Recite 10 rak'ah prayer in 5 sets of 2, and in each rak'ah recite Surah al-Fatiha once, Surah al-Ikhlaas 3 thrice and Surah al-Kafiroon thrice. Upon completion of each set, recite the following:

لا إلهَ إلاّ اللّهُ وَحْدَهُ لا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ، يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ، وَهُوَ حَيٌّ لا يَمُوتُ، بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ، وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

There is no god save Allah, alone without any partner. To him is the kingdom and to Him is all praise. He gives life and causes to die while He is Ever-living and never dies. In His hand is the good and He has power over all things.

The following invocation should be said thereafter:

اللّهُمَّ لا مَانِعَ لِمَا أَعْطَيْتَ، وَلا مُعْطِيَ لِمَا مَنَعْتَ، وَلا يَنْفَعُ ذَا الْجَدِّ مِنْكَ الْجَدَّ

O Allah: verily, none can ever divest him whom You decide to give; and none can ever give him whom You decide to deprive, and nothing can ever stop that which You decide.

15th of Rajab

Recite 10 rak'ah prayer in the same manner as prescribed and at the end of each set recite the following:

لا إلهَ إلاّ اللّهُ وَحْدَهُ لا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ، يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ، وَهُوَ حَيٌّ لا يَمُوتُ، بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ، وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

There is no god save Allah, alone without any partner. To him is the kingdom and to Him is all praise. He gives life and causes to die while He is Ever-living and never dies. In His hand is the good and He has power over all things.

The following invocation should be said thereafter:

إلهاً وَاحِداً أَحَداً فَرْداً صَمَداً، لَمْ يَتَّخِذْ صَاحِبَةً وَلا وَلَداً

The Lord Who is One, One and Only, Singular, and Besought by the all. He has betaken neither a wife nor a son.

Last Day of Rajab

On the last day of Rajab, perform the 10 rak'ah prayer in the same manner and at the end of each set recite the following:

لا إلهَ إلاّ اللّهُ وَحْدَهُ لا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ الْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ الْحَمْدُ، يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ، وَهُوَ حَيٌّ لا يَمُوتُ، بِيَدِهِ الْخَيْرُ، وَهُوَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ

There is no god save Allah, alone without any partner. To him is the kingdom and to Him is all praise. He gives life and causes to die while He is Ever-living and never dies. In His hand is the good and He has power over all things.

Then recite:

وَصَلَّى اللّهُ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ الطَّاهِرِينَ، وَلا حَوْلَ وَلا قُوَّةَ إلاّ بِاللّهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظِيمِ

May Allah send blessings upon Muhammad and upon his Family, the Immaculate. There is neither might nor power save with Allah, the Most High, the All-great.
