Congregational zikr

Question ID: 26079

Assalamualaikum Mufti
. I read on the q and a that Mufti states congregational Zikr is Bid’at, please explain what is congregational Zikr, in Ramadhaan at our Masjid we have a small Zikr after Fajr Salaat, the Imaam will lead the Zikr, and the Musallees read aloud what the Imaam is reading, but not at the Imaams pace, the Musallees will read at their own pace, so everybody reads on his own, they just reading what the Imaam is reading, all the Aalims in this Masjid are Deobandis, also a very prominent Deobandi Aaalim holds a Zikr Majlis every Thur evening. same procedure, nothing out of the ordinary. does this fall in place of congregational Zikr? eg. the Imaam will say Allah, the Musallees will read the same as the Imaam. this is practiced by many prominent Ulamah of Deoband. past and present, im abit confused.

This is not the practice of 'many prominent Ulema of Deoband'. This claim is baseless and misleading. This practice should be avoided. No muslim can be against Zikr.

1) Loud Zikr,

2) In congregation,

3) in unison (chorus form),

4) in the Masjid
is not proven in Shariat. Read the following books and listen to the following audios attached carefully:
