The Benefit of Supplicating for a Muslim Brother

“Our Rubb! Forgive me and my parents, and (all) the believers on the Day when the reckoning will be established.” (14: 41)

Abud-Darda’ (RA) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying, “Whenever a Muslim supplicates for his (Muslim) brother in his absence, the angels say: ‘May the same be for you too’.” [Muslim]

Abud-Darda’ (RA) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “The supplication of a Muslim for his (Muslim) brother in his absence will certainly be answered. Everytime he makes a supplication for good for his brother, the angel appointed for this particular task says: ‘Ameen! May it be for you, too’.” [Muslim]

Commentary

The Hadith above makes it apparent that when a Muslim prays for some Muslim brother in his absence also stands to benefit from it because the angel assigned for the task of praying for those who pray for others will pray for him, saying, “O Allah! Grant him also the same which he has asked for others.”
