Seeing Holy Kaaba for the first time



Can you please indicate the best prayer to recite when one sees the Holy Kaaba for the first time?

Is there a prayer to recite when one sees Roza-e-Rasool (s) for the first time?

Jazak Allah


Wa `alaykum salam,

When seeing Holy Kaaba for the first time one is to stop and stand still and say three times Allahu Akbar, then three times Laa ilaaha Illallaah. Then raise your both hands and recite salaat and salaam on the Messenger of Allah (saws), and then say any du’a you want.

When one reaches the Rawda with his right foot shall say:

Bismillaah wa’l-salaatu wa’l-salaam ‘ala Rasoolillaah. Allaahumma ighfir li dhunoobi waftah li abwaab rahmatika. A’oodhu Billaah il-‘azeem wa bi wajhihi’l-kareem wa bi sultaanihi’l-qadeem min al-shaytaan il-rajeem (In the name of Allaah, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allaah. O Allaah, forgive my sins and open to me the gates of Your mercy. I seek refuge in Allaah the Almighty and in His noble Face and in His eternal Power, from the accursed Shaytaan).
