1. Is the dua for taraweeh which is found displayed in many masjids sunnah?
2. If it is not and someone recites it considering it to be so will this be classified as bid'ah?
3. If it is not a sunnah shouldn't the ulema point this out to the public?


Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah's guidance)

Du'a or Tasbeeh of Taraweeh:

Subhana ZilMulki wal Malakuti, Subhana ZilIzzati wal Azmati wal Haybati wal Qudrati, Wal Kibriyaa'i wal Jabaroot Subhanal Malikil Hayyil Ladhi, la Yanaamu wa la Yamutu,

Subbuhun, Quddusun, Rabbul Malaa'ikati war-Ruh, La Ilaha Illal Lahu, Nastaghfirullahi

Nas 'alukul Jannati, Wa Na-udhubika Minan-Naar

Translation: Glorified is the Owner of the Kingdom of the earth and the heavens; Glorified is the Possessor of Honour and Magnificence and Awe, and Power and Greatness and Omnipotence Glorified is the Sovereign, the Living, Who does neither sleep nor die O all Glorious, All Holy one, Our lord and the Lord of the Angels, And the soul. There is no God but You, Forgive us, Grant us Paradise, and save us from (hell) fire.

There are no reports from the Sunnah but this Du'a has been recommended by 'Ulamaa such as, Allamah Ibn ĎAbidin al-Shami and others. (Shami Vol.2 Pg.46)

This Du'a is permissible to recite, and it will be Bid'ah to make it compulsory. One may recite any other Du'as or Zikr.

And Only Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.
