Q: Hazrat Zain-ul-Abideen (R.A) narrates that whosoever recites or listens to the recitation of the following dua anytime between sunrise and sunset on the day of ‘Ashura, then it shall act as a guarantee for his life the following year and he shall not encounter death. If he was to experience death that year then he shall not be capable in reciting this dua by coincidence. My question is, is this narration authentic. The barelvi part of my family insists on its importance.
A: This is baseless. Don’t pay attention to this.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
