Assalamualykum Wa Rahmathullahi Wa Barkathuhu!
Please look at the following dua and please let me know if this is valid
Hazrat Imam Zainul Abidain (Radi Allah Anhu) reports that who ever recites this dua( Dua-e- Ashura) on the tenth of Muharram, any time after sunrise and before sunset, or listens to its recitation from someone else, Allah Ta’ala will certainly make it an insurance for a years’ life for him, by keeping death away from him. However, if one is to become the victim of death in that year, they will by some strange coincidence not remember to recite it.
يا قابل توبة آدم يوم عاشوراء……..
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.
The above is a baseless fabrication. It is not permissible to recite the above du’aa or share it with others. The contents of the above du’aa are also unestablished.
There is no du’aa that can delay or prevent death. If death is written for a person at a certain time, it will most certainly come to him at that exact time without any delay, irrespective of how many du’aas he recites.
And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
