Are there any Supplications and Adhkaar (Remembrance of Allah) for Friday and Saturday and the likes..?

هل هناك أدعية وأذكار ليوم الجمعة، وأخرى ليوم السبت


There are some books which specifically mention Supplications and Adhkaar (words of remembrance) reported from the Messenger of Allaah (صلى الله عليه وسلم), from them, for example, a book entitled “Ad-Duaa al-Mustajaab” in it are found supplications for every day of the week. There are Supplications and Adhkaar for Friday (Jumu’ah) and others for Saturday and the likes, so is adhering to these Adhkaar from innovation or are they from the Sunnah?

هناك بعض الكتب الخاصة بالأذكار والأدعية الواردة عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم منها مثلا كتاب " الدعاء المستجاب" وقد وجدت فيه أدعية لكل يوم من أيام الأسبوع ، فهناك أدعية وأذكار ليوم الجمعة، وأخرى ليوم السبت، وهكذا . فهل الالتزام بهذه الأذكار بدعة أم هو من السنة؟


This book is not depended upon and its author is a Haatibul-Layl [1] one who gathers together the corrupt and despicable with the good and fine; and the saheeh (authentic), the Da’eef (weak) and the Mawdoo’ (fabricated) [narrations altogether]. Hence it is not to be relied upon. And it is not permissible to single out any day or any night with anything except with evidence from al-Ma’soom (the infallible) (عليه الصلاة والسلام). So this book is not relied upon. Rather you should have recourse to other books, since that which is firmly established from the Messenger of Allaah (عليه الصلاة والسلام) from the Adhkaar and supplications that are mentioned in the morning and evening, then that is legislated, and that which is not [established] then its not [legislated].

As for the book “Ad-Duaa al-Mustajaab” then it is not relied upon since its author is not worthy of that, as we have mentioned that he gathers together the corrupt and despicable with the good and fine; and the saheeh (authentic), the Da’eef (weak) and the Mawdoo (fabricated) [narrations altogether]. Indeed we have written with regards to that [i.e authentic supplications and adhkaar] a small treatise which we have entitled “Tuhfatul-Akhyaar bimaa Sahha min ad-D’iyyah wal-Adhkaar” so refer to it if you wish.

هذا كتاب غير معتمد، وصاحبه حاطب ليل يجمع الغث والسمين، والصحيح والضعيف والموضوع فلا يعتمد عليه، ولا يجوز أن يخصص أي يوم أو أي ليلة بشيء إلا بدليل عن المعصوم عليه الصلاة والسلام. فهذا الكتاب لا يعتمد عليه، ولكن تراجع الكتب الأخرى فما ثبت عن رسول الله عليه الصلاة والسلام من أذكار أو أدعية تقال في الصباح أو المساء شرع ذلك، وما لا فلا.

وأما كتاب: "الدعاء المستجاب" فلا يعتمد عليه؟ لأن صاحبه ليس بأهل لذلك؟ لأنه كما قلنا يجمع بين الغث والسمين، والصحيح والضعيف والموضوع. وقد كتبنا في ذلك رسالة سميناها: "تحفة الأخيار بما صح من الأدعية والأذكار" فراجعها إن شئت.

Fataawa Noor 'alaa ad-darb


[1] Note what follows is not from the speech of the Shaykh, it is added for the benefit of the English reader: Haatibul-Layl – Literally is a person who gathers wood at night. Ibn Manzoor in Lisaanul-‘Arab mentions, “It is said about a mixed up and confused individual who speaks with the corrupt and despicable with the good and fine, Haatibul-Layl. Since the Haatibul-Layl (the one who gathers wood at night) does not see what he is gathering due to his hastiness, so he does not distinguish between the good and the rejected. Or because of perhaps a snake may bite him or a scorpion may sting him while he is heedlessly gathering wood at night. And likewise an individual who speaks much, perhaps he may speak with something which will lead to his destruction.
