The Prayer of Eclipse
Praying it is a communal obligation and it must be prayed in congregation and in the masjid. When the eclipse is visible and can be seen by people, the call is made to gather the Muslims in the mosque.
The Imam leads the prayer by offering takbeer, recites the Dua'a in the beginning of the prayer, seeks refuge in Allah from Satan, recites al-Fatiha and then recites a long surah after it.
He then bows and prolongs his ruku and then stands straight saying: Sami’a Allahu liman Hamidah, rabana wa lakal Hamd.
He then begins to recite al-Fatiha again and another long surah but shorter than the first one.
After that, He bows and prolongs his ruku but less than the first one and then stands straight saying: Sami’a Allahu liman Hamidah rabana wa lakal Hamd and prolongs his standing position.
He then offers two long prostrations and also prolongs his sitting in between the prostrations.
After that, he stands up and repeats the same format as the first rak'ah but shorter. He then sits for tashahud and offers Salam.
