Ruling on reciting du’aa’s which are not proven

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
What is the ruling on some du’aa’s that have not been narrated (from the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him)), such as, “Rocky obstacle and falling star, may the eye of the envier come back on him and on those who are dearest to him.”
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

This du’aa’ has no basis. It involves enmity against people other than the aggressor, so it is not permissible to use it because the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Whoever does an action that is not in agreement with this matter of ours (i.e., Islam), will have it rejected.” And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
