(Fatwa: 482/447/SN=07/1436)

The ritual of kunda and the practice of Fatiha with particular conditions is baseless. It is not proved from the Holy Quran and Hadith. It was also not practiced by Sahabah, Tabi’een, Ayemma Mujtahidin etc. It is bida’h and unlawful. It is not lawful for Muslims to practice it or help it or participate in it. (Fatawa Mahmoodia, 3/281, pub. Dabhel).
