Du`a'-ul-Istiftah before Takbirat-ul-Ihram

A 3: Du`a'-ul-Istiftah in Salah must be after Takbirat-ul-Ihram and before the Isti`adhah (saying: "A`udhu-Billahi mina Al-Shaytan -ir-Rajim [I seek refuge with Allah from the accursed Satan]”), the Basmalah and reciting Al-Fatihah (Opening Chapter of the Qur'an). It must conform to what was reported from the Prophet (peace be upon him), which is mentioned in the books of Sahih (authentic) Hadiths. It is impermissible to pronounce intentions out loud because one's intention lies in the heart and vocalizing it is a Bid`ah (innovation in religion) since the Prophet (peace be upon him) did not do it.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
