Reciting tawwuz and tasmiyah before reciting certain Aaayaat as a wazifa

Q:

1. In “Remedies from the Holy Qur’an” by Hadhrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi (Rahmatullahi Alayh), it says that: “if anyone recites the beautiful name of Allah, Al-Majeed,…” Must one recite “Al-Majeed, Al-Majeed…”, or “Ya Majeed, Ya Majeed…”?

2. When an Ayaat of the Qur’an Shareef is repeated as a Wazifa/Dua, must one begin with Ta’wuz when first starting to recite?

3. Similarly, when an Ayaat of the Qur’an Shareef is repeated as a Wazifa/Dua, must one begin each individual recitation with Tasmiya?

Bismillaah

A:

1. Both ways are right.

2. No.

3. No.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
