Is it haram to make money thru dua or wazeefa for persons

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by ShariahBoard.org
I have a duaa/wazeefa containing names of Allah [s.w.t] in certain order. If anybody faces any problem and he asks me to read this duaa for solving his problem and Allah [s.w.t] solves his problem after this duaa/supplication [I read this duaa in certain order] . I charge some money from him after problem solution. If his problem does not solve, I don’t charge any money. From that money I use 90% on mosque, poors and different charity works while use 10% for my personal use. 1-Is it legal to charge any money for reading this supplication. He is happy because his legal [jaiz] work is done by Allah [s.w.t.] ? 2-If it is legal , can I use verily this money upon percentage basis ? 3-Is it a sort of shirk ? I am afraid he may think this problem is solved by me [naoozo billah] not by Allah [s.w.t]. Kindly relieve me from these questions of agony.

It’s one thing to read the surahs of Quran or the names of Allah s.w. for the sake of worship and to sends it’s reward to someone else in which case there is a consensus that one cannot take any money for it. It’s another thing to do it for the sake of curing people in which case a big group of scholars say it’s fine to take money and another group forbid it from taking it as a profession. The money earned this way can be spent on oneself and one doesn’t have to share it with someone else. However, there should not be an exploitation of Muslims in this form of treatment like it’s in vogue these days. Those who think that it’s through these things people are cured and not from Allah s.w. is wrong. All it means is that Allah s.w.
cures through these things and the method is not wrong.
