Salaam alaikum sisters,
Inshallah I will make this post longer but to start off I just wanted to remind everyone that when making duaa (outside of salaah) one must first say:
Bismillahi arrahman arraheem. Then one must recite al-fatiha and finally the second tashahhud before making your duaa.
May Allah swt keep us on the straight path. Ameen.
