A New Form of Salah Hajat?

By Mufti Shafiq Jakhura (Darul Ihsan Centre)


Q. It has come to my knowledge that some people observe certain nawafil Salah by reciting any specific surah a certain number of times (that is more than once) in each raka'ah after reading Surah Fatiha. Sometimes they make an extra sajdah after reading tashahhud and durood and there, they ask for any specific dua they are in need for. They even call this Salah as Hajat. However I have not come across any kind of this Salah in the Hadith.


A. Making more than two Sajda's in one rakat, except for any Sajda-e-tilaawat or Sajda-e-Sahw is not established in any Salah. If the Sajda you refer to is a part of the Salah then this is an incorrect practice. Reciting the same Surah a number of times in one rakat has been established in some traditions.

And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
