Topic: "Ya Allaah" as dhikr is bid'ah

Pardon my ignorance but i am a little confused with the post. It would be much appreciated if you can clariy the following.

When you have refered to saying 'Ya Allah' as a bidah, is this in respect to saying in a continuous manner - for example in the same manner as you would make dhikr of Allah by saying SubhanAllah on a continous basis of do you mean that when one is supplicating to Allah - for example saying, 'Ya Allah grant me success...' that is a bidah and instead one should say,'Allahuma grant me success...'

Please clarify

JazakAllah Khair

  We do use the supplication "Yaa Hayyu yaa Qayyum bi rahmatika astageeth". To the best of my knowledge this is an authentic supplication in which we are using Allaah's names of Al Hayy and Al Qayyum and also using "Yaa".

But as for the statement "Ya Allaah", then what is the meaning of it? There's no meaning to it unless you add [a need] to it, like "Oh Allaah forgive me." [Or] "Oh Allaah, have mercy upon me." And like I say [right now], "Oh Allaah, let the questions come to an end."

He said here that saying "Ya Allaah" is OK when you use with a supplication.

As a note for proper pronunciation: Yaa Allaah would be pronounced together as: Yallaah (saying the yaa' and going right to the laam), since the hamza in Allaah's name is hamzat al-wasl, however saying "Allaahumma" instead is the usage found in the Qur'aan and the Sunnah.  And Allaah knows best.
