In a homeschooling group that I belong to, a post recently came through regarding a very “popular” opening duaa…. that the hadith which transmits it is weak.
It is the one that we have been saying and I think is found in My Salat Companion so I felt the need to mention it.
I’m not a learned person in the deen, so please read it and see what you think and act as you feel you should (apply it, seek advice from a scholar, etc)
Here is where the discussion can be found: http://abuaaliyah.multiply.com/journal/item/65
