Having One’s Needs Fulfilled by Reading Sooratul Faatihah


Q: I read in an Islaamic book that whoever has some need and wants it fulfilled should read Surah Al-Fatihah (Opening Chapter of the Qur’an) forty times after Maghrib (Sunset) Prayer. Once finished and before leaving, one’s request will undoubtedly be fulfilled – In shaa Allaah. Is this saying correct?

 

A: It is not permissible for a Muslim to recite Al-Fatihah forty times to have some needs fulfilled. This is one of the newly-invented Bid`ahs (innovations in religion). It is not correct that the need of a Muslim who reads it will be fulfilled; rather, it is part of the promotion of this Bid`ah and a confusion for the common people.

 

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions.
