Fatwa No: 127170

Question

I would like to know is there any special dua to be recited after every 4 rakhas of taraweeh.The people usuallly follow it where i live.I tried find the refrence or hadiths quoting this special Dua but did not find one.Can you please help me?
the dua people read starts like this 'Subhana zil mulki wal malakoot, Subhana zil izzti wal azmati, Wal haibati, wal qudrati, wal kibri yaa-i wal jabroot.
Subhanal malakil hai yil lazee, la yanamu wa-la yamoot, Sub-boo-hun, qud-du-sun, rabbana, Wa rabbul ma laai katu wa rooh."
is it correct to read this dua.

Answer

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  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) is His slave and Messenger.

 

As far as we know, there is no particular mention of Allaah or supplication that is said during the Rak’ahs of Taraaweeh, so it is not permissible to say this supplication because in principle the matters of worship are restricted to what has religious evidence and it is not permissible to innovate any of it without religious evidence.

Aa’ishah  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  her narrated that the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allaah exalt his mention ) said: "Whoever introduces into this matter of ours [Islam] that which is not a part of it, it will be rejected." [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

However, if one says this supplication sometimes during Taraweeh or after it without repeating this regularly, then this is permissible because its meaning is correct.

Allaah Knows best.
