Requesting Someone to Supplicate after Concluding a Lesson

by the

Muhaddith, Shaykh, Allamaa’
Muhammad Nasiruddeen al-Albaani

Translated by
Abbas Abu Yahya

Shaykh Albaani –rahimumAllaah- quoted an Athar of Ibraheem an-Nakhai in ‘Kitab al-ilm’:

‘They (the Companions) used to sit and study knowledge and goodness, then they would disperse and would not seek forgiveness from one another, they would not say: O so and so, make Dua’ for me.’

The Shaykh commented saying:

‘Which means that some of the Companions’ -Radi Allaahu anhum- making Dua’ for others after the completion of a lesson or on ending study was not their action. This is a Bida’. Similar to this is when a shaykh leads his companions in supplication and they follow the supplication after him, because that is something which becomes a fitnah (trial) for that shaykh and lead him to marvel at himself.’
