Revert making niyyah

Fatwaa ID: 1246

Assalaamu alaikum
How would a revert make niyyat for a nafl salat
Eg salatul ehram
Or tahiyatul musjid

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Your question is not clear. The salaah of a new Muslim and a born Muslim is the same. There is no difference between the two. As for niyyah of any salaah, that is an action of the heart/mind. There is no precedence to verbalizing it from Nabi ﷺ or the Sahaabah (R). One should not verbalize it. The salaah commences with the takbeer.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
