Congregational supplication after the "bayaan" of the Jamaa'ah at-Tableegh
*Please appropriately reference
this fatwa to: www.fatwa-online.com, thankyou!*
What is the ruling regarding the congregational supplication after their “bayaan” (i.e. the words of advice of the Jamaa’ah at-Tableegh)? And also when they leave the masjid to go to the people (inviting them to their call)?
The congregational supplication, whether it is after some words of advice or on leaving the masjid or going to give da'wah has no (legal) basis (in the Sharee'ah), (rather) it is an aspect of bid`ah. So it is befitting to offer guidance to those who do this, and explain to them that this is not from the Sharee'ah, such that (they can correct their errors and) their affairs can be based upon the Sharee'ah of Allaah (‘Azza wa Jall).
