Question: Is this form of supplication correct: “O Allah, I ask you by your Beautiful Names and Attributes to………?”Answer:
It is from the Sunnah to petition Allah by His Beautiful Names and His Exalted Attributes, by one’s good deeds or by one’s love for the righteous. This is a means of having one’s prayers answered, regardless whether one does this before of after his supplication. But it is not permitted to petition Allah Almighty by mentioning people, like saying, “I ask you by so and so,” because this leads to associating partners with Allah Almighty.
Shaikh Ibn Jibreen
