Q 5: What is the ruling on the following issues?1-
Asking other people in the Masjid (mosque) to recite Al-Fatihah after each obligatory Salah with the intention of seeking a cure for someone
Reciting Surah Ya-Sin at home for three days for the sake of the deceased
Supplicating loudly while following the funeral procession
Celebrating the events of Mawlid (the Prophet's birthday) and Hijrah (Prophet's migration to Al-Madinah) in the Masjid?
Holding a commemoration at the end of the first week of one’s death
All these things count as Bid`ah (innovation in religion) which should (Part No. 2; Page No. 210) be abandoned and prohibited. The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
Anyone who does an action which is not stated in this matter of ours (Islam) will have it rejected.
Every novelty is an innovation, and every innovation is misguidance.
