Training students to say the Adhkar prescribed after Salah
Q 3: What is the ruling on
training students to say the Adhkar (invocations and remembrances said at certain times on a regular basis) said after Salah (prayer) or Tasbih (saying: "Subhan Allah [Glory be to Allah]") congregationally in a loud voice?
Students must be taught Adhkar and Du‘a’ (supplication) and should be encouraged to memorize them by heart in a manner that agrees with that which Allah and His Messenger (peace be upon him) have laid down. However, they should not be asked to do so congregationally in a loud voice, as it is a groundless Bid‘ah (innovation in religion) running counter to basic principles. Actually, students should not be accustomed to Bid‘ahs.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
