DAILY FIQH Question: Please comment on the following message that is being circulated on social media: "On the 7th,8th 9th and 10th Dhul-Hijjah, make Dua 4 your children, because on these dates Ebrahim Alaihi Salaam made dua 4 his son and Allah accepted it. On the day of Hajj, after Asr read the following: 21 times Durood Ebrahim, 447 time Allahumma Labayk , 21 times Durood and then make Dua, it will definitely be accepted." Answer: The specific virtue mentioned in the above message is not found in any authentic book of Hadith. It is the sole perogative of Allah to give virtues and prescribe for man. We should therefore restrict ourselves to that which has been authenticly conveyed to us. Considering thay the first ten days of Dhul-Hijjah are amongst the best days of the year, we should increase in reciting Duas and Dhikrs that have been prescribed in the Quraan and Sunnah. Furthermore, parents should always make Dua for the guidance and protection of their children.
