SALAAT UL HAAJAH PRESCRIBED IN ISLAM?

SALAAT UL HAAJAH PRESCRIBED IN ISLAM ?

SALAAT UL HAAJAH:-

It is prescribed for the Muslim to worship Allaah in the ways that He has prescribed in His Book, and in the ways that have been proven from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). The principle concerning matters of worship is tawqeef [i.e., following what is in the Qur’aan and saheeh Sunnah; with no room for individual opinion]. And we cannot say that any act of worship is prescribed unless there is saheeh evidence.

SALAAT UL HAAJAH IS PRESCRIBED IN ISLAM ?? :-

Salaat Al-Haajah is mentioned in four hadeeths, two of which are fabricated. In one hadeeth Salaat Al-Haajah has twelve rak’ahs and in the other it has two. The third hadeeth is da’eef jiddan (very weak) and the fourth hadeeth is da’eef (weak). In the last two hadeeths the prayer has two rak’ahs.

It is narrated from Ibn Mas’ood (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Twelve rak’ahs that you pray by night or day and recite the tashahhud between each two rak’ahs. When you recite tashahhud at the end of the prayer, then praise Allaah and send blessings and peace upon the Prophet, and recite the Opening of the Book seven times whilst you are prostrating, and say: Laa ilaaha ill-Allaah wahdahu laa shareeka lah, lahu’l-mulk wa lahu’l-hamd was huwa ‘ala kulli shay’in qadeer (There is no god but Allaah alone with no partner or associate, His is the Dominion, to Him be praise, and He has power over all things) ten times. Then say: “O Allaah, I ask You by the glory of Your Throne and the Mercy of Your Book and Your greatest name and Your highest majesty and Your perfect words,” Then ask for what you need, then raise your head and say salaam right and left. Do not teach it to the foolish for they will pray and will be answered.”

(NARRATED IBN AL-JAWZI IN AL MAWDOO’AAT 2/464)

IBN AL-JAWZI SAID :-

Via ‘Aamir ibn Khadaash from ‘Amr ibn Haroon al-Balkhi. Ibn al-Jawzi narrated from Ibn Ma’een that ‘Amr al-Balkhi was a liar, and he said: It is narrated in saheeh reports that it is forbidden to recite Qur’aan when prostrating.

Mawdoo (Fabricated)

IMAM ALBANI SAID :-

Daeef.

(DAEEF AL-TARGHEEB 418)

SHAYKH SAALIH AL-FAWZAAN SAID :-

This is a hadeeth which is some what strange, because it enjoins reciting Al-Faatihah in a position other than standing, namely when bowing and prostrating, and doing that repeatedly, as well as saying “I ask You by the glory of Your Throne” etc. All of these are strange things. So muslims should not act upon this hadeeth. There are sufficient saheeh ahaadeeth which are proven to be from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and concerning which there is no confusion; these point to naafil acts of worship and prayers which are good and which are sufficient in sha Allaah. End quote.

(AL-MUNTAQA MIN FATAAWA AL-SHAYKH AL-FAWZAAN 1/46)

IT IS PROVEN THAT THE PROPHET (PEACE AND BLESSINGS OF ALLAH BE UPON HIM) FORBADE RECITING QUR’AAN WHILE BOWING AND PROSTRATING.

‘Ali b. Abi Talib reported: The Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) forbade me to recite (the Qur’an) in a state of bowing and prostration.

It was narrated that Ibn ‘Abbaas (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Jibreel (peace be upon him) came to me with some du’aa’s and said: When some worldly matter befalls you, say these words first, then ask for what you need: O Creator of the heavens and the earth, O possessor of majesty and honour, O helper of those who cry for help, O helper of those who seek help, O reliever of calamity, O most merciful of those who show mercy, O answerer of the call of the one who is in distress, O God of the universe, so You I tell my need, You know best about it so fulfil it.”

Abdullah bin Abi Awfa narrated that :

Allah’s Messenger said: “Whomever has a need from Allah, or from one of the sons of Adam, then let him perform Wudu, performing it well, then pry two Rak’ah, then pray Allah and say Salat upon the Prophet. Then let him say: (L ilaha illallah Al-Halimul-Karim. Subhan Alla Rabbil-Arshil-Azim. Al-Hamdulillahi Rabbil-Alamin. Asaluka mujibati rahmatika wa aza’im maghfiratika, wal-ghanimata min kulli birrin, was-salamata min kulli ithmin la tada li dhanban illa ghafartahu, wa la hamman illa farrajtahu, wa la Hajatan hiya laka radan Illa Qadaitaha, ya arham ar-rahimin.) ‘None has the right t be worshiped but Allah. Al-Halim (the Forbearing) Al-Karim (the Generous). Glorious is Allah, Lord of the Magnificent Throne. All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the worlds. I ask You for that which warrants Your mercy, and that which will determine Your forgiveness, and the spoils (fruits) of every righteous deed, and safety from every sin; do not leave a sin for me without forgiving it, nor a worry without relieving it. Or a need that pleases you without granting it. O Most-Merciful of those who have mercy.’”

It was narrated from Anas (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “O ‘Ali, shall I not teach you a du’aa’ which, if some worry or distress befalls you, you may call upon your Lord with it and you will be answered by Allaah’s leave and you will be granted relief? Do wudoo’ and pray two rak’ahs, and praise and glorify Allaah, and send blessings upon your Prophet, and ask for forgiveness for yourself and the believing men and women, then say: O Allaah, You judge between Your slaves concerning that in which they differ, there is no god but Allaah, the Most High, the Almighty, there is no god but Allaah, the Forbearing the Most Generous. Glory be to Allaah, the Lord of the seven heavens and the Lord of the Mighty Throne. Praise be to Allaah the Lord of the Worlds. O Allaah, reliever of distress and worry, answerer of the call of the one who is in distress when he calls upon You, Most Compassionate and Most Merciful in this world and in the Hereafter, have mercy on me in my need and meet it, mercy that will leave me with no need of the mercy of anyone other than You.”

IMAM ALBANI SAID :-

Daeef.

(SILSILAH DAEEFA 5287,DAEEF AL-TARGHEEB 417)

CONCLUSION:-

There is no Saheeh hadeeth about this prayer, so it is not prescribed for the Muslim to offer it. What is narrated in the saheeh Sunnah of prayers, du’aa’s and adhkaar is sufficient for him.
