Fatwa Date : Rajab 19, 1434 / 29-5-2013
All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.
The method which you mentioned in the question is an innovation which has no basis in the Sharee’ah, so you must not do it as the Prophet said: "Whoever introduces into this matter of ours (Islam) that which is not a part of it; it will be rejected.” [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim] Imaam Muslim narrated this Hadeeth with the following wording: “Whoever performs an act which is not in accordance with ours [our religion], it will be rejected from him.” [Muslim]
Imaam An-Nawawi said in his interpretation of Saheeh Muslim: “One should learn this Hadeeth and use it in invalidating evil [innovations], and one should spread the information about using this Hadeeth as evidence…..”
Whoever worships Allaah with anything other than what Allaah has legislated, his act of worship will be rejected from him and Allaah will not accept it from him. Furthermore, as far as we know, neither the Quran, nor the Sunnah nor the acts of the Companions support this method, so you should be keen on asking the scholars about anything which you do not know and not take knowledge from any one you like.
Allaah Knows best.
