Q 5: There is a group of people in our Masjid (mosque)
who always repeat the phrase "Ya Latif" (O Most Kind and Gentle) 122 times after reciting Allah's Noble Names.
Is this valid?
This is impermissible, because this has not been reported from the Prophet (peace be upon him), who stated in an authentic Hadith:
Whoever introduces any practice into this affair of ours that is not of it, it is to be rejected.
And in another narration:
Whoever performs an action not in accordance with our command, it is to be rejected.
.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
