The Mevlid Kandili prayer is sought on the occasion of the oil lamp to be realized. Kandil days and nights are blessed dates when Muslims open their hands to Allah and ask forgiveness for their sins, and the doors of wishing are open. In our religion, there is no form of worship specific to oil lamp nights. On these special nights, it is recommended to perform tasbih and tayajjud prayers as well as time prayers and accident prayers. In addition, among the worships to be performed during the Mevlid Kandili, it is best to recite a lot of prayers, repent and ask for forgiveness.

HOW TO PERFORM MEVLID CANDILI PRAYER?
The Mawlid Kandili prayer (The Rosary prayer) consists of four rak’ahs and is performed as follows:
The prayer begins with the intention “to perform the tasbih prayer for the sake of Allah”.
Say “Subhanallahi ve’l-hamdulillahi vela ilaha illallahu vallahu akbar” 15 times after Subhanake.
Then, the audhu basmala is drawn, and after the Fatiha and the surah are recited, ‘Subhanallahi ve’l-hamdulillahi vela ilaha illallahu vallahu akbar’ is said 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.
