Supplications after concluding the prayer

Thauban (Radi Allah Anhu) reported:
Whenever the Messenger of Allah

(Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) concluded his prayer,

he would beg forgiveness from Allah thrice

and then would recite:

"Allahumma Antas-Salamu, wa minkas-salamu,

tabarakta ya Dhal-Jalali wal-Ikram"
("O Allah, You are the Grantor of security,

and security comes from You.

You are Blessing,

O You Who have majesty and nobility!'')
(Imam) Al-Awza`i, one of the narrators of this Hadith, was asked:

"How forgiveness is to be sought?''

He answered:

"The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) used to say:

'Astaghfirullah! Astaghfirullah! '
(I beseech Allah for forgiveness, I beseech Allah for forgiveness) '.''
