Manners of ehram | 7. Nafil of ehram, dua and talbiyah

Nafil of ehram, dua and talbiya
The command to wear ihram is on arrival at everyone’s Miqaat and if there is no prohibited time for the prayers then with the intention of ihram two rakah nafil prayers (gents covering their heads with caps or with turbans) must be performed. A Hadith narrated by  Hadrat Jabir Bin Abdullah saying:
«أن النبي–عَلَيْهِ الصَّلَاةُ وَالسَّلَامُ–صَلَّى بِذِي الحُْلَيْفَةَ رَكْعَتَيْنِ عِنْدَ إحْرَامِه.»  meaning, the  Holy Prophet  sallallaahu alaihi wasallam performed two rakah prayers on wearing ihram at his  Miqaat zhu al-Hulaifa.
It is better to recite (قُلْ یٰٓاَیُّھَا الْکٰفِرُوْن) after reciting (الحمد) in the first rakah and recite (قُلْ ھُوَاللّٰہ ) in the second rakah. (Bahar-e-Shariyat, Volume 1, Part-6, Page 1072).
