Exam hack: Reciting Surah Qalam and blowing on one’s pen

Fatwaa ID: 1494

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Is there any basis to praying surah qalam then blowing it on one’s pens before writing an exam or is it mujarrab?

Jazakumullahu khayran

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

The above is not established from Nabi ﷺ or the salaf. It may be a mujarrab/experimented practice. It is permissible to act upon it provided that one does not regard it to be sunnah or something established. The Qur’aan is a source of benefit and goodness.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
