When you have completed your Fard or Sunnah prayers, you may pray to Allah in your own words offering him praise, thanksgiving or asking him for forgiveness for yourself or other Muslims or your own dear and near ones. For this Du`a keep sitting after the obligatory prayers, hold up your hands near each other with the palms up and fingers slightly bent (as shown in figure 32). In this position you may offer anyone of these or other personal prayers:
| ALLAHUM-MA ANTAS-SALAM WA-MINKAS-SALAM|
O Allah, You are the Author of peace and from You comes peace.
TABARAKTA YA-DHALJALALI WAL-IKRAM
ALLAHUM-MA-GHFIRLI WALIWALDAYYA WALI USTADHI
WALIJAMI'LMU'MININA WAL MUMINATI WAL MUSLIMINA WAL MUSLIMAT
