Dua when rooster crows

Q: I live in the countryside and in my courtyard I have six hens and a beautiful red rooster, masha'Allah. The rooster crows many times a day. It starts before sunrise and it stops after sunset. It crows especially when I listen/recite the Quraan or Durood Sharif, masha'Allah. I'm really happy of this thing because I know that Imam at-Tirmidhi reported in his Jami' that Abu Huraira (radhiyallahu anhu) narrated: "The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said "When you hear the crowing of the roosters, then ask Allah of His grace/bounty, for verily they have seen an angel, etc.". So when I hear the crow, I recite various duas sometimes in Arabic and sometimes in Italian, but I don't know the specific du´a for this case. Well, I'd like to know the best du´a to say when I hear the crow of my rooster (in transliterated Arabic, please).


Reciting "La howla..." after Tasbeeh-e-Faatimi

Q: Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) requested Hazrat Fatima (radhiyallahu anha) to recite 33 times Subhanallah, 33 times Alhamdulillah and 34 times Allahu Akbar which is termed as Tasbeeh-e-Fatimi. This would then serve as an energy booster. If I extend the zikr by adding La Howla wala quwwata illa billa... will it still be called Tasbeeh-e-Fatimi?


Durood in Rajab

Q: Can we read durood of kunda in Rajab. 


Making dua for a person who commits suicide

Q: Can we pray for a person who commited sucide? If yes, then I heard many times that a persom who commits sucide can't enter paradise.



Q: Is there more than one version of Tasbeeh Faatimi? Are all variations accepted as such or is the 33/33/34 the one which is the only one?


Reciting the dua of Yunus (Alaihis Salaam) for someone else

Q: Can we recite dua Yunus for someone else's coming out of danger or recovering for illness? Example - There is an initiation of an Islamic foundation that they want to complete dua Yunus a particular number of times. So they are forwarding the message through people and everyone is reciting at least once and this is for the people of Syria. Is it a correct way?


Making zikr

Q: Can I read this tasbih all time after fardh namaz: 

1. Istighfaar 100 times

2. La ila ha illalah 100 times

3. La ilaha ila anta subhanaka ini kuntu minaz zalim 100 times

4. Subhanalah wa bi hamdi 100 times

5. Hasbi rabi Allah 100 times

Even in my qiyamul layl I read all these tasbeeh and I have a habit to finish my tasbih in my qiyamul layl 100 times first kalima, 100 times 3rd kalima and 100 times istighfar, is it ok?


Aayat-e-karima khatam

Q: I want to ask a question about aayat-e-karima. Is it necessary to recite it 125 000 times for aayat-e-karima khatam or we can recite it as much as we can. What is the authenticity of the count?


Asking Allah Ta'ala for material things
