Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by


As Salaamu Alaikum,

I recently came across a dua called hizbul Bahar by Imam Shadhili which claims to help ease difficulties by will of Allah if one listens or recites it. I would like to know if it is ok to listen or read this dua since I never heard of this before. Please guide me.



Wa Alaikum As Salaam,

The Hizbul Bahr is a collection of Duas and Quranic verses that are very good and authentic, and has been recited by many great scholars and pious Muslims of the past. Since there are very beneficial duas mentioned in it, one will receive benefits from it once he does it with sincerity in his heart and firm trust in Allah. So, it is good to read it or listen to it.

And Allah knows best
