3- ​ After the Third Takbeer: Pray for the dead but according to how it was narrated from our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Blessings and Peace be upon him). 

اللهمَّ اغفر لِحينا و مَيّتِناَ و شاهِدنا وغائبِنا و صغيرنا وكبيرِنا وذَكَرِنا وأُنثَانَا اللهم مَن احيتَهُ منَّا فأَحيهِ على الإسلام ومَن تَوَفَّيتَهُ مِنَّا فَتَوفَّهُ على الإيمان  – رواه الترمذي


Allahumma-ghfir lihayyina wa mayyitina, wa shahidina wa gha’ibina wa saghirina wa kabirina, wa dhakarina wa unthana. Allahumma man ahyaytahu minna fa ahyihi ^alal-Islam, wa man tawaffaytahu minna fa tawaffahu ^alal-’iman.


This means: “0 Allah, forgive our dead and alive, our present and absent, our young and old, our male and female [Muslims]. 0 Allah, whomever among us You gave life, let him live with Islam. Whomever among us You took life from, let him die with Iman (Faith)”.



4- Lastly after the 4th Takbeer​: 

Say as-salamu :

 as­salamu ^alaykum wa rahmatullah

 while turning the head to the right, then to say it while turning to the left.


May Allah (Sub-haanahu wata aala) forgive our shortcomings, and our dead ones. May Allah grant us Jannatul Firdaus. Amen
