As Salaamu Alaikum,
Dear Mufti and his staff, what is the ruling in sharyya about saying ‘Ameen’ to the own dua, can you provide reference and narration about this? Jazakallah khayran
Wa Alaikum As Salaam,
‘Ameen’ means to beseech Allah to accept the dua made by a person. As such, when someone makes dua to Allah, others who are listening to him and have joined him in the dua would say Ameen to his duas.
With respect to saying ‘Ameen’ to one’s own dua, this has not been narrated from any practice of the Prophet (S.A.S) or the pious predecessors. However, since the word ‘Ameen’ simply means, ‘O Allah accept this dua’, there will be no harm in saying it.
And Allah Knows best
