Sat 7 Jm1 1435 - 8 March 2014
I heard some people saying this du’aa’: “O Allaah, deal with the kuffaar and mushrikeen and Jews; O Allaah, do not leave any one of them alive; O Allaah, wipe them out as You wiped out ‘Aad and Thamood.” What is the ruling on such a du’aa’?.
Praise be to Allaah.
Praying that the kuffaar be wiped out is overstepping the
mark in du’aa’, because Allaah has decreed that they should exist and there
is a reason for their existence; Allaah does what He wills and rules as He
And Allaah is the source of strength; may Allaah send blessing and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.
