Q: My query is with regards to the authenticity and reliability of a kitaab – it’s content, author and publishers. The name of the kitaab is “Fayzaan-e-Rahmat – Abundance of Mercy – A collection of Du’as for different occasions” by Maulana Muhammad Abdullah Darkwasti and jointly published by Zam Zam Publishers and Madrasah Arabia Islamia.
All the duaas are prescribed from Qur’aan and Hadith. Some of the prescribed wazifahs include Surah Yaaseen and it’s seven mubeens/Shaykh Husain Ahmad Madani’s nafl salaat prescription/other wazifahs of qadriyyah silsilah among many others. Can I undoubtedly and with full yaqeen supplicate to Allah Ta’ala through the means of these prescribed wazifahs?
A: The duas of the mashaayikh must be understood as their duas and not as duas established from the Qur’aan and hadeeth.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
