The following is the complete duʿah as has been transmitted and recorded in Saḥīh Muslim:

6 كتاب صلاة المسافرين وقصرها (26) باب الدُّعَاءِ فِي صَلاَةِ اللَّيْلِ وَقِيَامِهِ 

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ أَبِي بَكْرٍ الْمُقَدَّمِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا يُوسُفُ الْمَاجِشُونُ، حَدَّثَنِي أَبِي، عَنْ عَبْدِ، الرَّحْمَنِ الأَعْرَجِ عَنْ عُبَيْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ أَبِي رَافِعٍ، عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ، عَنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم  أَنَّهُ كَانَ إِذَا قَامَ إِلَى الصَّلاَةِ قَالَ: 

‏وَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِيَ لِلَّذِي فَطَرَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ حَنِيفًا وَمَا أَنَا مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ إِنَّ صَلاَتِي وَنُسُكِي وَمَحْيَاىَ وَمَمَاتِي لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَبِذَلِكَ أُمِرْتُ وَأَنَا مِنَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ 

اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ الْمَلِكُ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ ‏.‏ أَنْتَ رَبِّي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِي وَاعْتَرَفْتُ بِذَنْبِي فَاغْفِرْ لِي ذُنُوبِي جَمِيعًا إِنَّهُ لاَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ وَاهْدِنِي لأَحْسَنِ الأَخْلاَقِ لاَ يَهْدِي لأَحْسَنِهَا إِلاَّ أَنْتَ وَاصْرِفْ عَنِّي سَيِّئَهَا لاَ يَصْرِفُ عَنِّي سَيِّئَهَا إِلاَّ أَنْتَ لَبَّيْكَ وَسَعْدَيْكَ وَالْخَيْرُ كُلُّهُ فِي يَدَيْكَ وَالشَّرُّ لَيْسَ إِلَيْكَ أَنَا بِكَ وَإِلَيْكَ تَبَارَكْتَ وَتَعَالَيْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ 

وَإِذَا رَكَعَ قَالَ: ‏

اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ رَكَعْتُ وَبِكَ آمَنْتُ وَلَكَ أَسْلَمْتُ خَشَعَ لَكَ سَمْعِي وَبَصَرِي وَمُخِّي وَعَظْمِي وَعَصَبِي‏.‏ 

وَإِذَا رَفَعَ قَالَ: 

اللَّهُمَّ رَبَّنَا لَكَ الْحَمْدُ مِلْءَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَمِلْءَ الأَرْضِ وَمِلْءَ مَا بَيْنَهُمَا وَمِلْءَ مَا شِئْتَ مِنْ شَىْءٍ بَعْدُ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ 

وَإِذَا سَجَدَ قَالَ: ‏

“‏ اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ سَجَدْتُ وَبِكَ آمَنْتُ وَلَكَ أَسْلَمْتُ سَجَدَ وَجْهِي لِلَّذِي خَلَقَهُ وَصَوَّرَهُ وَشَقَّ سَمْعَهُ وَبَصَرَهُ تَبَارَكَ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِينَ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ 

ثُمَّ يَكُونُ مِنْ آخِرِ مَا يَقُولُ بَيْنَ التَّشَهُّدِ وَالتَّسْلِيمِ 

‏اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِي مَا قَدَّمْتُ وَمَا أَخَّرْتُ وَمَا أَسْرَرْتُ وَمَا أَعْلَنْتُ وَمَا أَسْرَفْتُ وَمَا أَنْتَ أَعْلَمُ بِهِ مِنِّي أَنْتَ الْمُقَدِّمُ وَأَنْتَ الْمُؤَخِّرُ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ ‏ ‏.‏

English Translation:

From Book 6 -The Book of the Prayer of the Travelers and the Shortening of It – Chapter 26 – The Prayer and the Supplication of the Prophet (ﷺ) At Night

ʿAli bin Abī Ṭālib reported that when the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) got up during the night for prayer he would say:

I turn my face to He Who is the Creator of the heavens and the Earth and I am not of the polytheists. 6:79

Surely my prayer, my sacrifice, my life and my death are (all) for Allah, the Lord of the worlds.  6:162

There is no partner for Him, and by this I have been , and I am from among those who submit (i.e. The Muslims). 6:163

“Oh Allah, You art the King. There is no God but You. You are my Lord and I am Your slave. I have wronged myself, and I acknowledge my sin, so forgive me all my sins; there is no one who can forgive sin except for you, and guide me to the best character;  there is no one who can guide to the good character except for you; there is no one who can guide (the soul) away from bad character except for you.  

Here I am at Your service, every good matter is in Your hand, and evil does not come from Your direction. I am Yours, and I turn to You. You are the Blessed and You are the Exalted; I seek forgiveness from You, and turn to You in repentance.”

and when he’d bow, he (ﷺ) would say: 

“Oh Allah, it is for You that I bowed; I affirm my faith in You and I submit to You, and submit humbly before You my hearing, my eyesight, my marrow, my bone, my sinew”, 

and when he’d raise his head, he (ﷺ) would say: 

“Oh Allah, our Lord, to You is due the Praise  which fills the heavens and the Earth, and fills that which exists between them, and fills anything that You desires afterward.” 

And when he’d prostrated himself, he (ﷺ) would say: 

“Oh Allah, it is You to Whom I prostrate myself, and it is You in Whom I put my trust, and it is You to Whom I submit while lowering my face towards the One Who created it, and shaped it, and separated it’s (ability) to hear and see. Blessed is Allah, and He is the Best of Creators”; 

and he (ﷺ) would then say between Tashahhud and the pronouncing of salutation: 

“Forgive me for what I have done earlier and what I did after, both openly and in secret, and (forgive me) for the matters wherein I transgressed the bounds, and those matters You know about more than me. You are the First and the Last. There is no god, but You.”

The following is the same duʿah as has been transmitted and recorded in Sunan Abī Dāwūd:

(123) باب مَا يُسْتَفْتَحُ بِهِ الصَّلاَةُ مِنَ الدُّعَاءِ

حَدَّثَنَا عُبَيْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ مُعَاذٍ، حَدَّثَنَا أَبِي، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْعَزِيزِ بْنُ أَبِي سَلَمَةَ، عَنْ عَمِّهِ الْمَاجِشُونِ بْنِ أَبِي سَلَمَةَ، عَنْ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ الأَعْرَجِ، عَنْ عُبَيْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ أَبِي رَافِعٍ، عَنْ عَلِيِّ بْنِ أَبِي طَالِبٍ، – رضى الله عنه – قَالَ كَانَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم إِذَا قَامَ إِلَى الصَّلاَةِ كَبَّرَ ثُمَّ قَالَ 

‏وَجَّهْتُ وَجْهِيَ لِلَّذِي فَطَرَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضَ حَنِيفًا مُسْلِمًا وَمَا أَنَا مِنَ الْمُشْرِكِينَ 

إِنَّ صَلاَتِي وَنُسُكِي وَمَحْيَاىَ وَمَمَاتِي لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ لاَ شَرِيكَ لَهُ وَبِذَلِكَ أُمِرْتُ وَأَنَا أَوَّلُ الْمُسْلِمِينَ

 

اللَّهُمَّ أَنْتَ الْمَلِكُ لاَ إِلَهَ لِي إِلاَّ أَنْتَ أَنْتَ رَبِّي وَأَنَا عَبْدُكَ ظَلَمْتُ نَفْسِي وَاعْتَرَفْتُ بِذَنْبِي فَاغْفِرْ لِي ذُنُوبِي جَمِيعًا إِنَّهُ لاَ يَغْفِرُ الذُّنُوبَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ وَاهْدِنِي لأَحْسَنِ الأَخْلاَقِ لاَ يَهْدِي لأَحْسَنِهَا إِلاَّ أَنْتَ وَاصْرِفْ عَنِّي سَيِّئَهَا لاَ يَصْرِفُ سَيِّئَهَا إِلاَّ أَنْتَ لَبَّيْكَ وَسَعْدَيْكَ وَالْخَيْرُ كُلُّهُ فِي يَدَيْكَ وَالشَّرُّ لَيْسَ إِلَيْكَ أَنَا بِكَ وَإِلَيْكَ تَبَارَكْتَ وَتَعَالَيْتَ أَسْتَغْفِرُكَ وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْكَ ‏‏.‏ 

وَإِذَا رَكَعَ قَالَ: 

اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ رَكَعْتُ وَبِكَ آمَنْتُ وَلَكَ أَسْلَمْتُ خَشَعَ لَكَ سَمْعِي وَبَصَرِي وَمُخِّي وَعِظَامِي وَعَصَبِي.‏ 

وَإِذَا رَفَعَ قَالَ: ‏

سَمِعَ اللَّهُ لِمَنْ حَمِدَهُ رَبَّنَا وَلَكَ الْحَمْدُ مِلْءَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَمِلْءَ مَا بَيْنَهُمَا وَمِلْءَ مَا شِئْتَ مِنْ شَىْءٍ بَعْدُ‏.‏ 

وَإِذَا سَجَدَ قَالَ: ‏

اللَّهُمَّ لَكَ سَجَدْتُ وَبِكَ آمَنْتُ وَلَكَ أَسْلَمْتُ سَجَدَ وَجْهِي لِلَّذِي خَلَقَهُ وَصَوَّرَهُ فَأَحْسَنَ صُورَتَهُ وَشَقَّ سَمْعَهُ وَبَصَرَهُ وَتَبَارَكَ اللَّهُ أَحْسَنُ الْخَالِقِينَ ‏.‏ 

وَإِذَا سَلَّمَ مِنَ الصَّلاَةِ قَالَ ‏

اللَّهُمَّ اغْفِرْ لِي مَا قَدَّمْتُ وَمَا أَخَّرْتُ وَمَا أَسْرَرْتُ وَمَا أَعْلَنْتُ وَمَا أَسْرَفْتُ وَمَا أَنْتَ أَعْلَمُ بِهِ مِنِّي أَنْتَ الْمُقَدِّمُ وَالْمُؤَخِّرُ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ أَنْتَ .‏

Book 2 – The  Book of Prayer – Chapter 272: The Chapter About the Duʿah (Supplication) With Which The Prayer Should Be Started (English Version)

‘Ali b. Ali Talib said:When the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) stood up for prayer, he uttered the takbir (Allah is the Greatest), then said: 

I turn my face to He Who is the Creator of the heavens and the Earth, and I am not of the polytheists. 6:79

Surely my prayer, my sacrifice, my life and my death are (all) for Allah, the Lord of the worlds.  6:162

There is no partner for Him, and by this I have been , and I am from among those who submit (i.e. The Muslims). 6:163

“Oh Allah, You are the King. There is no God but You. You are my Lord and I am Your slave. I have wronged myself, and I acknowledge my sin, so forgive all my sins; there is no one who can forgive sin except for you, and guide me to the best character; there is no one who can guide to the best character except for you; and guide me away from bad character; there is no one who can guide (the soul) away from bad character except for you. 

Here I am at Your service, every good matter is in Your hand, and evil does not come from Your direction. I am Yours, and I turn to You. You are the Blessed and You are the Exalted; I seek forgiveness from You, and turn to You in repentance.” 

When he (ﷺ) bowed, he’d  say: 

“Oh Allah, it is for You that I bowed; I affirm my faith in You and I submit to You, and submit humbly before You my hearing, my eyesight, my marrow, my bone, my sinew”, 

When he (ﷺ) raised his head, he’d  say: 

“Oh Allah, our Lord, to You is due the Praise  which fills the heavens and the Earth, and fills that which exists between them, and fills anything that You desires afterward.”

When he (ﷺ) prostrated himself, he’d  say: 

“Oh Allah, to You I prostrate myself, to You I trust, and to You I submit myself. My face prostrated itself before Him Who created it, fashioned it, and fashioned it in the best shape, and brought forth its hearing and seeing. Blessed is Allah, the best of creators.” 

When he (ﷺ) made the final Salaam at the end of the prayer, he’d say: 

“Forgive me for what I have done earlier and what I did after, both openly and in secret, and (forgive me) for the matters wherein I transgressed the bounds, and those matters You know about more than me. You are the First and the Last. There is no god, but You.”
