Blow on body while reciting names of Allaah Ta’aala, kissing the mus’haf

Fatwaa ID: 610

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu

  1. Is it correct practice to blow on different parts of the body whilst reciting different Asmaaul Husna? For example, reciting Ya Noor and blowing on eyes 7 times after fajr and maghrib, reciting Ya Qawwiyyu 11 times while keeping hand on forehead after each fardh prayer.
  2. Is it wrong to kiss the Mushaf Shareef, out of love and respect, whenever handling it or after reciting from it?
  3. How can we ensure that any of the acts that we do, do not fall under the category of practicing bidah? Are there some valuable guidelines to check for ourselves if we are not falling into bidah practices, since these days people very freely accuse others of doing bidah or even haraam acts? Please could you shed light on this and also share any material from where to gain more knowledge on it.

Jazakumullahu khairan kaseera wa Baarak Allahu feekum

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

  1. The above and similar things are generally based on experimented practices. It is permissible to act upon such experimented practices that do not have any questionable issue in them provided that one does not regard them to be sunnah. Placing one’s hand and wiping on the body and reciting du’aas have been established in the Ahaadith.
  2. It is permissible to kiss the mus’haf. That is an expression of one’s love and respect for the Qur’aan. Kissing the mus’haf is established from the illustrious Sahaabah (R).
  3. Kindly refer to the following,

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
