Salamu Alaykom Wa rahmatu Allah 1- Its rule and time: The prayer of eclipsing "AlKosof" is an assured "Sunna" (an act our prophet "May God send his peace and blessings upon him" used to do) upon men and women, Our prophet "Muhammad" asked people (Muslims) to pray it; He said " Sun and Moon are two arguments from God, they do not eclipse because of the death or the life of someone, if you see it pray immediately. Actually, it is prayed as praying in the two feasts, it begins from the viewing of the act "eclipsing" for both of each (Sun and Moon), But if the eclipsing happens at the sun-set time, in which the donation prayer is hateful badly, replace praying by asking God for supplication, forgiveness, demanding God to bestow his mercy and assistance upon us. 2- Preferable acts during eclipses: In fact, people should greaten God and mention his gifts, asking God for mercy and forgiveness, giving the poor, releasing slaves, kindness to people, and visiting relatives, our prophet wanted us to do that. 3- The description of the eclipse prayer Gathering people to the mosque without "Azan or Eqama" and it means (making someone say ordinary announcement of prayers in Islam), Someone can say "The prayer should gather people" in Arabic "Alsalat Jameah" The Imam: the one who leads people in a prayer; should lead people to pray" two Raqaas" on each one there are two kneelings and two getting ups with longituding in reading kneeling, and bowing down. If the eclipse is over during praying, they can finish it as an ordinary donation prayer. Actually it is not a manner of our prophet to make a speech "Khotbah" however the "Imam" can worth-mention God to people and advising them to be near to God if he wants to do, Because "Aisha" the Prophet's wife "May God bless her" said "the sun eclipsed during the life time of prophet Muhammad (MGBH); so he went to the mosque, then he stood-up and said "Allahu akbar" he greatened God and made people stand in rows behind him and read for a long period, then greatened God and kneeled for a long period, then heightened his head and said "May god hear he who thanks him, Thank you our God" then read for a long period but less than the first, then greatened God and kneeled less than the first kneeling and then said " May God hear he who thanks him, thanks our God" and then he bowed down, and he made the same operation in the second "Raqaa" until they reached four "Raqaas" and four bowing downs. The sun returned to be natural before finishing then he stood up and made a speech to people, he greatened and exolted God as he deserves always and asked people to resort to praying to God on eclipses 4- The moon eclipse: It is like praying in the eclipse of the sun, on the other hand some scientists mentioned that the prayer of the moon eclipse is like other donation prayers in which they can be prayed in houses or in mosques without gathering people, Because it is not mentioned that prophet "Muhammad" (MGBH) gathered people in it as he did in the prayer of sun eclipse. In fact, It is a wide matter, he who wants to gather people, he can and he who wants to pray it as a singular, he also can, For it is recommended for "Muslims" to pray immediately and asking God for assistance and help, Men and women should ask for God supplication so as to release his anger from them. May God show us the true path. Translated from: "Menhaj Almuslim" Written by: "Abubakr Jaber Aljazaery"
