Q. Salaams Please advise what the ruling is regarding loud dua by the imam after ever Farz salaah. Is it permissible and should we say aameen? Is the dua for the full congregation or the imam or for oneself. If it is not a sunnah or not permissible, what should we as the musallees do? Should we walk out or sit and not raise our hands or make our own dua silently? Pease advise as it is regarded compulsory in many masaajid locally. JazakAllah
A. Du’a after the Fardh Salaah is established from authentic Ahadith. However, the correct Sunnah method is that every person should make Du’a individually.
Raising the hands when making Du’a is optional. Raising the hands when making Du’a after the Fardh Salaah is established from the Ahadith.
Making a congregational Du’a after the Fardh Salaah is permissible on condition that it is not considered necessary.
