Does the Saying of Amin After the Imam’s Dua Suffice for Me As My Dua

Answered by: Mufti Mohammed Tosir Miah




After the fard prayers in my local mosque, the imam reads du’as audibly and the congregation says Ameens.


He includes the standard du’as which are to be said after prayer, such as “Allahumma anta salam wa minka salam…” etc. Does my sayings of Amin after him suffice for me, or do I have to read this same du’a again for myself?



In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.




Yes, the Ameen you say after the Imam’s dua would be considered sufficient.


Habib ibn Maslama al-Fihri Radiallahu Anhu narrates that I heard the Prophet of Allah say: “No group of believers assemble, one of them supplicating while others saying Amîn, except that Allah answers their prayer.” (Imam Tabrani’s Mujumul Kabir & Mustadrak Hakim)
