Ruling on reading the Wird of Al-Tijaniyyah and worshipping Allah through it

Q 3: Is it permissible to read the Wird (portions of Qur'an recited with consistency) of Al-Tijaniyyah order on a regular basis and worshiping Allah through it or not?


A: Al-Tijaniyyah order is an abominable Bid`ah (innovation in religion) which contradicts the guidance and Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him). Some of these utterances lead to Shirk (associating others with Allah in His Divinity or worship) and takes whoever believes in it out of Islam, may Allah protect us. Thus, it is impermissible to worship Allah through these utterances, for Dhikrs, like other acts of worship, are bound by religious texts derived from the Qur'an and the authentic Sunnah of the Prophet (peace be upon him). Therefore, you should refer to reciting the Qur'an, and other kinds of Dhikrs and du`a' cited in the books of (Part No. 2; Page No. 320) Sunnah, such as Riyadh al-Saliheen by Al-Nawawy, Al-Kalim Al-Tayyib by Ibn Taymiyyah Al-Wabel Al-Sayyib by Ibn Al-Qayyim, Al-Adhkar by Al-Nawawy, and other reliable books of Hadith.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
