Supplications taken from reliable books

Q: There are pamphlets that are circulated among people which contain some Hadith and Dhikr (Remembrance of Allah). Please advise us regarding the lawfulness of acting upon what is mentioned in these writings and clarify for us the authenticity of their Hadith.

A: You have to refer to reliable books about Shar`y (Islamically lawful) supplications such as "Al-Adhkar" by Al-Nawawy, "Al-Kalim Al-Tayyib" by Sheikh Al-Islam Ibn Taymiyyah and "Tuhfat Al-Akhyar" by Sheikh `Abdul-`Aziz ibn Baz You should not rely on these papers that spread among people whose source is unknown, due to the errors and ignorance they may contain.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
