Islamic Ruling (Fatwa) No.127170: Reciting a special du'a after every 4 rak'ahs of taraaweeh

Fatwa Date: Ramadhaan 25, 1430/15-9-2009


I would like to know is there any special dua to be recited after every 4 rak’has of taraweeh. The people usually follow it where I live. I tried to find the reference or hadiths quoting this special dua but did not find one. Can you please help me? The dua people read starts like this: 'Subhana zil mulki wal malakoot, subhana zil izzti wal azmati, wal haibati, wal qudrati, wal kibri yaa-i wal jabroot. Subhanal malakil hai yil lazee, la yanamu wa-la yamoot, sub-boo-hun, qud-du-sun, rabbana, wa rabbul ma laai katu wa rooh." Is it correct to read this dua?


All perfect praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.

As far as we know, there is no particular mention of Allah or supplication that is said during the rak’ahs of taraaweeh, so it is not permissible to say this supplication because in principle the matters of worship are restricted to what has religious evidence and it is not permissible to innovate any of it without religious evidence.

Aa’ishah narrated that the Prophet said: "Whoever introduces into this matter of ours [Islam] that which is not a part of it, it will be rejected." [Al-Bukhaari and Muslim]

However, if one says this supplication sometimes during taraweeh or after it without repeating this regularly, then this is permissible because its meaning is correct.

Allah knows best.
