Requesting Someone to Supplicate after Concluding a Lesson, by the Muhaddith, Shaykh, 'Allamaa` Muhammad Nasiruddeen al-Albaani
Shaykh Albaani (rahimahullaah) quoted an athar of Ibraheem an-Nakhai (rahimahullaah) in Kitab al-ilm:
|They (the Companions) used to sit and study knowledge and goodness, then they would disperse and would not seek forgiveness from one another, they would not say: O so and so, make Du'aa` for me.
The Shaykh commented saying:
|Which means that some of the Companions (radiallaahu 'anhum) making Du'aa` for others after the completion of a lesson or on ending study was not their action. This is a Bid'ah.
Similar to this is when a shaykh leads his companions in supplication and they follow the supplication after him, because that is something which becomes a fitnah (trial) for that shaykh and leads him to marvel at himself.

Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk
If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.
