As-salā­mu ‘alaykum wa-rah­mat­ul­lāhi wa-barakā­tuh

Shaykhul-Islam Mufti Taqi Usmani (HA) in a talk giv­en dur­ing Ramad­han advised Mus­lims to recite this Dua and attrib­uted it to the Prophet (Sal­lal­la­ho Alai­he Was­sal­lam).

He received a let­ter enquir­ing about its authen­tic­i­ty to which a reply was giv­en:

Your cor­re­spon­dence addressed to Hazrat Maulana Mufti Taqi Usmani Saheb (DB) was received. It con­cerns a Dua men­tioned in a talk giv­en by Hazrat (DB), as per his instruc­tions the response is as fol­lows:

اللَّهُمَّ اجْعَلْ لِي عِنْدَكَ قُرْبَةً ، وَاجْعَلْ لِي عِنْدَكَ وَسِيلَةً ، وَاجْعَلْ لِي عِنْدَكَ وَلِيجَةً ، وَاجْعَلْ لِي عِنْدَكَ زُلْفَى وَحُسْنَ مَآبٍ

Indeed, the chain of trans­mis­sion (con­nect­ed to) Nabi Kareem (Sal­lal­la­ho Alai­he Was­sal­lam) is extreme­ly weak. There­fore, its attri­bu­tion towards Nabi Kareem (Sal­lal­la­ho Alai­he Was­sal­lam) should not have been men­tioned and it will be paid atten­tion to in the future. We appre­ci­ate that you have direct­ed our atten­tion towards this mat­ter.
