How to Perform the Mevlid Kandili Prayer?
The Mawlid Kandili prayer (The Rosary prayer) consists of four rak'ahs and is performed as follows:
The prayer begins with the intention of "performing the tasbih prayer for the sake of Allah".
After Subhanake, say "Subhanallahi ve'l-hamdulillahi vela ilaha illallahu vallahu akbar" 15 times.
Then the euze basmala is recited, and after the Fatiha and the surah are recited, 'Subhanallahi ve'l-hamdulillahi vela ilaha illallahu vallahu akbar' is recited 10 more times.
This tasbih is recited 10 times when bowing down, 10 times when standing up, 10 times during the first prostration, 10 times when getting up from the prostration, and 10 times during the second prostration.
Thus, 75 tasbihat are made in each rak'ah.
When standing for the second rak'ah, the tasbih is recited 15 times, then the Basmala is read, the Fatiha and the surah are read, and the tasbih is brought 10 times.
The remaining rak'ahs are repeated in the same way so that 4 rak'ahs are completed and a total of three hundred tasbihat are recited.
