Answer:

 

Dua to safeguard temples and churches

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


 

Because Allah Subhanah has placed man in a test for a period of this one short transitory life, to protect the sanctity of this test, Islam guides that every individual has a right that he/she be allowed to worship whomsoever they wish or choose to worship. Even in a state of war, Islam absolutely and categorically prohibits the believers from ever destroying a place of worship, regardless of whether that place of worship is dedicated to Allah Subhanah Alone, or any of the other deities the disbelievers have chosen to worship instead of Allah Subhanah! Such is the sanctity of any place of worship provided by the guidance of Islam.

 

Your Question: .In a city at the time of EID prayers while DUA mufti of EID GAH has said a statement "O God! safeguard mosques,temples & churches"

It is fare to say like this in DUA?

Neither would it be right for one who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day to make a supplication unto their Lord to destroy the places of worship of the disbelievers.nor would it be right for the believers to supplicate Allah Subhanah to preserve or safeguard the places of worship of the disbelievers!

 

The best supplication a believer who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day can and should make for their disbelieving brethren is that Allah Subhanah have mercy on them, open their hearts, and guide them to the Truth of Al-Islam.

 

If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be assured of being led astray.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
