Reading Quraan;Recitation of Allah’s names to achieve goals;Dua in congregation after salaah

Question ID: 31662


I have a few questions pertaining to different topics.

1. Is it permissible to recite the Quraan (to read it from the book, instead of reading from memory) while wearing shorts that does not completely cover the thighs (for a male)?

2. There are many actions regarding the recitation of Allah’s names to seek help in achieving a goal. One of these actions includes reading 12 000 Ya Haseebu (The Reckoner) to achieve good results in examinations (for school). I did not find this practice in the hadeeth. Is this an act of innovation or is it genuine?

3. I have recently came to a realization that making a Dua as a congregation after salaah is an act of innovation. Could you name other acts of innovation that the majority of people do in their daily lives without taking notice?

4. What is the Islamic perspective on matters such as astral projection and lucid dreaming?

Thank you in advance for answering these questions.

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُاللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ

1.) This is against the etiquette.
2.) It is a practise of the elders. No Hadith for this.
3.) It is nor an innovation. It is Mustahab. Read ‘unsubstantiated acts’ on our site.
4.) No concrete, finite information can be derived from these.

وَعَلَيْكُمُ السَّلَام وَرَحْمَةُ اللَّهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ وَمَغْفِرَتُهُ
