Du’aa for safety of luggage

14 Aug 2018 Ref-No#: 888

As Salaamu Alaykum Mufti Saheb,
Just need to verify. With regards to reading the supplication الله ربي لا شريك له and drawing a circle around one’s goods for safekeeping, does the circle have to be seen/drawn literally or it will it suffice to make a circle without literally drawing one?

JazakumullaahuKhairan

Answer

Wa’alaykum as Salam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu,

You can draw the circle with your finger.  You do not have to literally draw a circle.
