multiple disk failure in RAID5 and dd


We had a multiple disk failure in RAID 5 are trying to assemble it back together.
Since we had similar disks and we can read all the failed partitions. Now
we would like to use dd to make failsafe copies of those partitions. Is
it possible to use dd to make copies of RAID 5 partitions? Is there a way
to make exact copies of the disks and use them in RAID5?
