Du’as

How to commence du’a

Question

My question is what is closer to the Sunnah: to praise Allah Ta’ala, then send salutations on the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wasallam and make du’a or to send salutations before praising Allah Ta’ala?

Some people send salutations first, saying this is the practice of our elders. Please clarify.

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) removing a jinn from a Sahabi?

Question

 Is there any such Hadith which states that a woman approached Nabi (sallallau ‘alayhi wa sallam) with her sick son. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, bring the boy close to him. So he was brought to him. He (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) spat into the boy’s mouth and said, come out, enemy of Allah. Then, a puppy came out of the mouth of the boy and ran away, and he was cured.

Is there any such Hadith which specifically makes mention of a puppy coming out of the boy’s mouth?

Would that have been a Jinn?

What is the authenticity of this Hadith?

The famous du’a during wudu

Question

The famous du’a read whilst making wudu:

Allahummagh fir li dhambi wa wassi’ li fi dari wa barik li fi rizqi.

Is this in the Hadith or is it a du’a from the pious? When should this du’a be recited? i.e whilst washing a specific limb or anytime whilst making wudu?

Question

Please verify the following: 

Once Musa (‘alayhis salam) asked Allah ‘Ta’ala

O  Allah! You have granted me the honour and privilege of talking to you directly, Have you given this privilege to any other person?

Allah Ta’ala replied, O Musa! during the last period I am going to send an Ummah, who will be the Ummah of Muhammad (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) with dry lips, parched tongues, emaciated body with eyes sunken deep into their sockets, with livers dry and stomachs suffering the pangs of hunger. They will call out to me (in du’a) they will be much much closer to me than you.

O Musa! while you speak to me there are 70000 veils between you and me but at the time of iftar there will not be a single veil between me and the fasting Ummati of Mohammed (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) .

O Musa! I have taken upon myself the responsibility that at the time of iftar I will never refuse the du’a of a fasting person!
