Q 5: The Al-Tijaniyyah sect has their own supplication called Salat Al-Fatih, which they consider to be better than reciting the Qur'an. Is this true? Moreover, on Friday before Maghrib (Sunset) Salah and after Subh (Dawn) Salah, they circle around a piece of cloth on which, they claim, the Prophet (peace be upon him)
Ahmad Al-Tijany sit.
During such times they recite the supplication called Salat Al-Fatih. Please, provide evidence and clarify if this practice is proper.
All their claims are false. Moreover, their deeds are null and void and are considered to be Bid'ahs (rejected innovation in religion).
