[Al-aAAla]

Qul ya ayyuha alkafiroon …..        قُـلْ يا أَيُّـها الكـافِرون….

[Al-kafiroon]

Qul huwa Allahu ahad …..            قُـل هُوَ اللهُ أحد…..   

[Al-ikhlas]

…after giving salam he would supplicate three times:

سُـبْحانَ المَلِكِ القُدّوس (ثلاث مرات)

Subhanal-malikil-quddoos.(three times).

‘How perfect The King, The Holy One is.’           (three times)

…on the third time he would raise his voice, elongate it and add:

Rabbil-mala-ikati warrooh.           ربِّ الملائكةِ والرّوح

‘Lord of the angles and the Rooh (i.e. Jibra-eel).
