Praise be to Allaah.
If what is meant is the du‘aa’ that is published widely in
many chatrooms and on many websites under the name “al-du‘aa’ al-mustajaab”,
which is attributed to a report that says that ‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab and
‘Ali ibn Abi Taalib (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of
Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said: “Whoever offer
ssupplication calling upon Allah by these names, He will answer his
supplication: ‘O Allah, You are the Ever Living Who never dies, the Creator
Who never is overcome, the All-Seeing Who is never in doubt, the All-Hearing
Who is never uncertain, the Truthful One Who never lies…’”… To the end of
the lengthy hadeeth:
This is a fabricated a du‘aa’ that is falsely attributed to
the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) and there
is no saheeh hadeeth that speaks of its virtue. It is not permissible for
any Muslim to transmit it on the basis of it being a hadeeth from the
Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). We have
previously discussed this in detail on our website, in the answer to
question no. 116137.
If what this sister is referring to is the book which is
called ad-Du‘aa’ al-Mustajaab, it is also an unreliable book which
includes many fabricated hadeeths and a number of things that are contrary
to sharee‘ah, hence the scholars have warned people against it.
In Fataawa al-Lajnah
ad-Daa’imah (2/449) it says:
This book – ad-Du‘aa’ al-Mustajaab – cannot be relied
upon because it contains a large number of weak (da‘eef) and fabricated
(mawdoo‘) hadeeths. End quote.
‘Abd al-‘Azeez ibn
‘Abdullah ibn Baaz, ‘Abd ar-Razzaaq ‘Afeefi, ‘Abdullah ibn Ghadyaan,
‘Abdullah ibn Qa‘ood.
Shaykh Ibn Baaz (may Allah have mercy on him) said:
It is a book that cannot be relied upon and its author is not
a scholar. Hence we have been drawing attention to this for a long time and
we have stated that this book cannot be relied upon. Readers should be
alerted to the fact that it cannot be relied upon because of what it
contains of weak and fabricated hadeeths.
Fataawa Ibn Baaz,
Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan
(may Allah preserve him) said:
There is a book that is widely circulated among people today
and is available in bookstores. It is called ad-Du‘aa’ al-Mustajaab,
by Muhammad ‘Abd al-Jawaad. It is a book of myths which includes innovated
Sufi du‘aa’s and dhikrs which are quoted without any evidence for that from
the Qur’aan and Sunnah. Its title is an audacious statement about Allah, may
He be glorified and exalted, because the book is called ad-Du‘aa’
al-Mustajaab (the supplication that is answered). But who is the one who
told him that this supplication is answered? What evidence is there for
that, except that he wanted to attract the attention of the common folk and
deceive them with this fabricated book. I refer the reader to some
trustworthy books of du‘aa’s and dhikrs that were written by leading,
trustworthy Sunni scholars:
by al-‘Allaamah ibn al-Qayyim
by Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah
by Imam an-Nawawi
These books do not contain any innovated dhikrs; they do
contain dhikrs narrated in the Qur’aan and Sunnah. They are sufficient and
there is no need for books of myths written by jokers, praise be to Allah.

Fataawa Fadeelat ash-Shaykh Saalih ibn Fawzaan, 2/697
You could also refer to what is quoted on our website in the
answer to question no. 13506,
where we discussed the conditions of du‘aa’ being answered and the means of
having one’s supplication accepted by Allah, may He be exalted.
And Allah knows best.
