An unauthentic du’a (du’a Ganjul ‘Arsh)

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Is it true that Jibrail (‘alayhis salam) taught the du’a ‘Ganjul ‘Arsh’ to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) and that whoever recites it no enemy will be able to overcome him?


I have not come across any such detail about this du’a in the reliable books of Hadith.

My spiritual mentor, Mufti Mahmudul Hasan Gangohi (rahimahullah) writes:

‘There is no authentic (sahih) chain for this [du’a]. The merits that are written for [this du’a] have no basis. Instead of reciting such passages, one should rather engage in Quran recital, sending salutations upon Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) and istighfar.’
