Question

Someone told me to read Surah Yaseen after 2 rakhas of Sunah prayer in fajr in such a manner i.e " start yaseen and read till 1st mobeen, then start again and read till 2nd mobeen...so on till the 7th mobeen" after this pray 2 rakhas of fard prayer of fajr. Do this for 7 days and whatever need we have from Allah swt it will be fullfilled. Plz. let me know if above mentioned way of reading is correct.

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.

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  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] Imaam Muslim  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him 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  may  Allaah  have  mercy  upon  him 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  may  Allaah  be  pleased  with  them  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.
