Read surah baqarah in house

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol,  no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Ref:  Declaring the Adhaan on all four corners of the house after laying its foundation.

This act or ritual of declaring the ‘adhaan’ on all four corners of the house after or before laying the foundation is not found in the authentic practice and traditions of the Messenger of Allah (saws);  and if one does it,  he will be guilty of the grave sin of inventing or following  a ‘bida’ or innovation in Islam.


Ref:  The family members of the house ‘can’ read Surah Baqarah in all rooms.

The believers are allowed and encouraged to recite the Quran wherever they wish; thus they ‘can’ read Surah Baqarah in any or all rooms of the house.


But to make it a ritual, whereby one, or all the family members ‘must’ read the Surah Baqarah or any Surah of the Glorious Quran in all the rooms at the completion of the house, is not from the authentic Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws); thus if one makes it a ritual, then he will be guilty of the grave sin of inventing or following a ‘bidah’ or innovation in the deen of Islam.


Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4515  Narrated by Ali ibn AbuTalib

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: “If anyone introduces an innovation, he will be responsible for it.  If anyone introduces an innovation or gives shelter to a man who introduces an innovation (in religion),  he is cursed by Allah,  by His Angels, and by all the people.”


Sahih Muslim Hadith 1885     Narrated by Jabir ibn Abdullah

The Messenger of Allah (saws) said:  “The best speech is that embodied in the Book of Allah, and the best guidance is the guidance given by me, (Muhammad (saws)).  The most evil affairs are their innovations; and every innovation is an error."


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
