Question

 

 

1.could you please let me know can i perform single umrah on behalf of all followers of islam (followers mean who were, are and will be), if i make niyyah that i am going to perform umra, on the behalf of all followers of islam.

2. Tell me some wazifa which will provoke the interest of studies (general and islamic)  and brightens the life, of my children, as this is the only worth i have.

Answer

 

In the name of Allāh, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalāmu ῾alaykum wa Rahmatullāhi Wabarakātuh

 

In principle, one can perform any Nafil ibādah and send the reward to whomsoever he wishes whether it’s one or more than one.

(Raddul Muhtār, Vol. 2, Pg.595)[1]

(Fatāwa Rahīmiyyah, Vol. 8, Pg.143, Darul Ishā῾at)

 

The greatest wazifa is to up bring your children according to Shari῾a and teach them Islamic Etiquettes. Moreover, make du῾a for your children’s future as the du῾a of a parent for his/her child is never rejected. With the blessing of this, Allah jalla jalāluhu will brighten their lives and help them in their affairs.[2]

 

Furthermore, read this wazifa excessively and make excessive istighfar in abundance as this is the solution to all problems.[3]

Yā Subbūhu Yā Quddūsu Yā Ghafūru Yā Wadūd.[4]

 

And Allāh Ta῾āla Knows Best
Wassalāmu ῾alaykum
