    Title: Dua at the time of Jalsa in salah

    Question: Between two sajdah jalsa sitting time I read “Allahummagh firli war hamni wahdini wa afini war zuqni” is this lawful? If it is not lawful to read it, then please provide any hadith in its support.

    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 553/553/M=1434) If you are offering fardh salah alone then you may recite the said dua, it is right without any doubt. And if you are leading salah as an Imam, and there are all types of people among the muqtadis then you would better not read this dua, so that people do not feel any problem. The holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) ordered to lead light salah as there are old and weak people in salah and they should be kept in mind while leading salah.
