Due to the limitations of transliteration it's hard to tell exactly, but you're presumably asking about the Arabic phrase شفيع المذنبين (Shafi'u-l-Mudhnabin), which literally means the Intercessor of Sinners, as in someone who acts on the behalf of sinners (e.g. to defend them against the final judgement). Shafi'u-l-Mudhnabin is a phrase that is sometimes ...

No, it is not sunnah of the Prophet ﷺ or his companions to do dhikr in unison in a loud voice, or to repeatedly say "Allah" in such a fashion. In the Surat Al-A'arāf, Allah commands us to do dhikr (remember our Lord) within ourselves or with a voice just below being able to decipher the speech from: وَاذْكُر رَّبَّكَ فِي نَفْسِكَ تَضَرُّعًا وَخِيفَةً ...

This is a more correct transliteration of what you mean: Ya Allahu يا الله, Ya Rahmanu يا رَحْمَنُ or يا رَحْمَان, Ya Rahim يا رَحِيمُ, Ya Rahmatan يا رَحْمَةً lil-'Alamin لِلْعَالَمٍينَ, Ya Shafi'a يا شَفِيعَ l-Mudhnibin المُذْنِبِينَ. So the word Shafia can be found in the quran where it is translated as intercessor or mediate. Al-Mudhnibin or ...

Ismul Azam, literally "the Greatest Name" is a name of Allah. Among its virtues, it is said that when a person with the proper disposition uses this name to supplicate to Allah then Allah grants whatever the supplicant asks for. This is usually mentioned in the Tafsirs of the story of Prophet Solomon and the throne of the Queen of Sheba [27:38-40] : قال ...

It is not considered as a Wajib (obligatory) act to say it loudly in every Rekat. Besides, Takbiratol-Ehram is considered as a Mustahab or recommended practice for the Imam to say it loudly that the persons who prayer, be able to hear it. But it doesn’t seem to be counted as a Wajib or obligatory act. In regard to saying it in other parts of the prayer, we ...

From Wikipedia: Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji'un (إِنَّا لِلّهِ وَإِنَّـا إِلَيْهِ رَاجِعونَ) is a verse of the Quran which means Surely we belong to Allah and to Him shall we return. This phrase is recited by Muslims when a person is struck by calamity in life, and is also recited upon hearing the death news of a Muslim. This can also be ...

As far as i know there is no clear proof or Hadith which allows you to say Alhamdulillah after having sex but on the other side there's no clear reference for not doing this as i will try to proof. For example there is a well known dikhr or dua' before having sex you can find it in Sahih Muslim and Sahih al Bukhari as follows: Ibn 'Abbas (May Allah be ...

In the sunni tradition Allah's greatest name اسْمُ اللَّهِ الأَعْظَمُ (Ism-u Allah-I al-a'dham) is quoted in several ahadith, but it is a disputable matter: The Greatest Name of Allah, if He is called by which He will respond, is in three Surah: Al-Baqarah, Al 'Imran and Ta-Ha. (Hasan)Another chain for something similar from Al-Qasim, from Abu Umamah, ...

Yes it is allowed to do some dhikr and thanking Allah while prostrating as long as it is not to excessive. It is even recommended to perform dua' while prostrating: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: The nearest a servant comes to his Lord is when he is prostrating himself, so make supplication (in this state). (Sahih Muslim) ... So far as Ruk'u is ...

Reciters base the takbīrat starting from Surat Ad-Duhaa 93 to Surat An-Nās 114 on a hadith documented by Al-Hākim An-Nisapūri, but it is graded as munkar (denounced): حدثنا أبو يحيى محمد بن عبد الله بن محمد بن عبد الله بن يزيد المقرئ الإمام بمكة في المسجد الحرام، ثنا أبو عبد الله محمد بن علي بن زيد الصائغ، ثنا أحمد بن محمد بن القاسم بن أبي بزة قال: سمعت ...

First your new question has a smooth transition to your last one therefore some of my quotes may more apply to your earlier question and some may apply to both and some may more likely be a good answer on your actual question. I think there's also a smooth transition to supplication, as thanking Allah or doing suplication are both a kind of remembrance of ...

There isn't any reason why it should not be permissible. One should do dhikr in all states. الذين يذكرون الله قياما وقعودا وعلى جنوبهم Who remember Allah while standing or sitting or [lying] on their sides ... — Quran 3:191 كان النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم يذكر الله على كل أحيانه The Prophet ﷺ used to remember Allah in all situations. — ...

Adhkar and tasbeeh are not obligatory or fard. The only obligatory worship is Salat, Fasting and Hajj. Every other way of worship is Nafali, and helps us thank Allah, remember Him, and gain also rewards. Skipping them would not make us sinful, but it is better to perform Adhkar as much as we can. “and remember Allah much, that you may be successful” [...

Most adhkar are mustahab. Fard ones are those said in Salah, Adhaan, Talbiyah, Takbirat al-Tashriq, replying to Salam, saying Tasmiyah on slaughtering cattle etc. https://islamqa.info/en/answers/253005/the-virtue-of-remembering-allah-dhikr-may-he-be-exalted-is-everyone-who-remembers-allah-little-a-hypocrite Remembering Allah, may He be exalted, may be ...

Simply speaking bid'ah is an innovation in the religion. This means an act of worship which have not been known or practiced by Muslims at the time of the Prophet. What you describe is a certain dhikr or as sufi's (and maybe others) may say it is a kind of wadifa. Which is a set of dhikrs one intents to say continuously at certain times. The dhikrs you ...

There is an implied mention of Noah ﷺ saying so after mounting his vessel prior to the flooding as commanded by Allah: فَإِذَا اسْتَوَيْتَ أَنتَ وَمَن مَّعَكَ عَلَى الْفُلْكِ فَقُلِ الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي نَجَّانَا مِنَ الْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِينَ And when you have boarded the ship, you and those with you, then say, 'Praise to Allah who has saved us ...

There seems to be a difference of opinion on the matter. SeekersHub (Hanafi, Sunni) considered it a permissible form of dhikr: The Divine Command to ‘make much remembrance of Allah’ is general, and anything considered ‘remembrance’ (dhikr) fulfills it. Given this, it is permitted by general agreement of the majority of Sunni scholarship to make dhikr of ...

Basically you are free to do whatever you like: Once the prayer ends, you could listen to the lesson, you could go home and you could choose to sit somewhere apart and perform dhikr (and turn back to the lessen later if you want). But in case you are at a mosque and the lecture starts right after that the lecture starts it is more preferable to listen to ...

When it comes to acts of worship, they have to be clearly and precisely established by the Qur’ân and Sunnah. Anything else is an unlawful innovation (bid`ah). The burden of proof, therefore, is upon the one claiming that some act is an act of worship. Therefore reading Quran in unison in a gathering or sending salawat on the prophet peace be upon him in ...

Bismillah, Please brothers, can someone please explain me what is going on here? Why are they doing this? Are they Sunni? Or Shia? What's happening in those two videos is, supposedly, called Halaqat Dhikr حلقة ذكر, which is a practice done by the majority of Sufis schools (or Tariqa طريقة). They gather at certain days at a certain place, and perform a ...

All Praise to Allah Subhan O Taala and blessings on Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him His family and Companions There are many supplications and zikr during the day and night but as you have only asked for special Zikr and wazaif after Salah from "Sahih Ahadith ",,so I have compiled some of them which Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him did himself and some ...

I indeed appreciate your question a lot. Since commonly it is inquired a lot and looks interesting as well. It is declared that it is sufficient to recite every Zikr during the Ruku’ or Sujud (Sajdahs), and for the sake of precaution: it would be nicer if we recite a Zikr which be (at least) as much as the length of the following zikr: سبحان ربی العظیم (...

Yes any prayer in praise are permissible. Those are some of prayer that the prophet Mohamed usually used in Salah 1- DOUA ISTIFTAH after TAKBIRET AL IHRAM, (after you said alahou akbar and start the prayer and before you start el FATIHA) Oh God separate between me and my sins as you separated between the east and west, Oh God cleans me of my sins as ...

That depends on what you mean with loud? An Imam should do this as his followers should follow him. So this is a way to communicate therefore he must communicate the transfer with an appropriate voice (so a more loudly voice would be mandub for him only in all the takbirat)! (Takbir/takbira(t) =(to say) Allahu Akbar) As a fad (praying alone) or a Ma'mum ...
