Ruling on collective Dhikr as done by Soofee orders
Collective Dhikr (Remembrance of Allaah) like what is done in the Soofee orders is an act of Bid`ah (innovation in religion). It was stated that the Messenger of Allaah (peace be upon him) said: Anyone who does something in this matter of ours (the religion) that is not from it, it will be rejected.).
Supplicating to the Aawliyaa' to ward off evil and pretending to know the Ghaib
Making Du’aa' to others instead of Allaah such as Aawliyaa' (pious people) to remove harm, cure the sick, or secure a road is Shirk Akbar (major form of associating others in worship with Allaah) that takes its doer away from the realm of Islam.
