Making Dua in Congregation after Salah
  • Question:

    Is making Dua in Congregation after fard Salah an innovation or is it allowed?

    Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

    Thank you for your question.

    There is no evidence for this practice in the Sunnah. However, it would be permissible on occasion due to a tragedy, death, war, lack of rain, etc. It becomes an innovation if it’s attached to the salaah and done on a consistent basis. Certainly had this been the practice of the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wa salam) or the companions (radiyAllahu anhum) 5 times a day, it would’ve been narrated at least once. Therefore I recommend you learn the adhkar (words of remembrance and supplication) that the Prophet (salAllahu alayhi wa salam) used to do and recite on an individual basis.

    And Allah knows best.
