  • Supplication more likely accepted in three sacred mosques Date: 11-3-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu. Is it true that supplications made at Al-Masjid Al Haraam are more likely to be answered than those made elsewhere? What about the masjid of Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam? Is it from the Sunnah to ask the one who is going on Umrah or Hajj to supplicate for you, for example? May Allaah.. More

  • Making Talbiyah as Thikr without Ihraam Date: 9-2-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum. Is it an innovation to say the Talbiyah as Thikr (expressions of remembrance of Allaah) and rememberance of Allaah on any average day? Can we say it like we say Alhumdulillaah (praise be to Allaah) and Subhaan Allaah (glory to Allaah)? Thank you. .. More

  • Sunnah in supplicating against others Date: 14-1-2017

    Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu, Shaykh. I want to know what the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, is regarding supplicating against others.

    Is it permissible to ask Allaah: "O Allaah, marry me to Maryam, the daughter of Imraan (the mother of Prophet Jesus, peace be upon him) and Aasiyah, the wife of Pharaoh, in Paradise."

I used to read it on my fingers, but then I read a fatwa saying that it is from the Sunnah.. More

  • Saying Thikr in language other than Arabic Date: 10-10-2016

    In one of the fatwas, you stated that doing Thikr (expressions of remembrance of Allaah) of some recitation is advised for a man before having intercourse with his wife. However, I would like you to tell me whether I should say that verse in Arabic only or if I can read its translation in English too? Would that be the same or not? Al-Bukhari and.. More

  • Intention in supplicating Date: 19-9-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum. Please answer me directly; I would be grateful to you! Does the intention depend on supplication? Do we get the reward by saying 'In Shaa Allaah' (if Allaah wills)while not having any intention to do it, or supplicating without having the intention to do so? Can these things be accepted by Allaah without holding an intention, like.. More

  • Asking Allaah to bless non-Muslim Date: 1-9-2016

    Previously, I asked a question, but you responded by forwarding to question no: 90921, where you kindly mentioned that we can pray for a disbeliever who is not against the Muslims, for worldly benefits, but not for mercy, forgiveness, and so on. However, my question is: there are scholarly differences of opinionwith regards to saying 'Salam' (peace).. More

  • How to praise Allaah before supplication Date: 15-3-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum! Your last answer to my Question No. 2600667 is not fully satisfying. Please read the following and clarify me it for me. I have a small doubt regarding supplication. You know, it is said that after every obligatory prayer, if we supplicate Allaah, The Exalted, concerning our individual problems, it will be granted/accepted. As for.. More

  • Raising the voice when supplicating is disliked Date: 9-2-2016

    Assalaamu alaykum. I sometimes speak in a very angry voice. I sometimes like to do so as it clears my mind. When I supplicate, I do so as well sometimes. I am not angry with Allaah; sometimes I am just angry about some stuff, if you speak with an angry voice to Allaah but are not angry with Allaah or are not menacing to show disrespect. Is that kufr..

  • Supplications are accepted after reciting Al-Faatihah and the last verses of Al-Baqarah Date: 15-12-2015

    Assalaamu alaykum. I heard a hadith on Iqra TV that says something in the sense that whoever recites the verse 'Rabbana, inana samayna munadeeyan enadee lil iman...' or the last two verses of Surah Al-Baqarah or other verses that I cannot recall while standing for prayer and asks Allaah a need, He will give it to him. I am sure the hadith exists but.. More

  • The reason supplications do not always prevent harm Date: 19-11-2015

    Assalaamu alaykum. I noticed two hadiths in Sahih Muslim where Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, said that if one stops at a place and says, "I seek refuge in the perfect Words of Allah from the evil of what He has created," then nothing will harm that person. Does this mean that, Allaah forbid, a Muslim who said this and was severely assaulted.. More
