Q: What is the correct form of the obligatory Talbiyah? What is recommendable to say in it? 

A: What is obligatory to say in Talbiyah after making the intention of Ihram and wearing the clothes of Ihram is: “Labbaik Allahumma Labbaik, Labbaik la Sharika lak Labbaik” (meaning I stand up for Your service, O God! I stand up! I stand up! There is no partner with You! It is obligatory to add: “Innal-Hamda wa-nn’imata laka wal molk la Sharika laka Labbaik” (meaning Verily Yours is the praise, the beneficence, and the dominion! There is no partner to You). There are also additional recommendable supplications to be said after that.
