Is Supplicating for the Ruler Wrong? Shaykh Al-Fawzaan (hafidahullah)

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم


Supplication for the Rulers of the Muslims is from the Methodology of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaa’ah, and abandoning it is from the methodology of the innovators.

Imam Ahmad said, “If we only had one supplication that was accepted, we would have supplicated for the ruler, because with his rectification lies the rectification of the Muslims.”

And indeed this sunnah has been abandoned to the extent that people find supplicating for the rulers strange and have bad thoughts regarding whoever does.
