A Prayer For You, is a Prayer For Me

Adapted from a hadith per day keeps the syaitaan away.

Abud-Darda' (radi Allahu anhu) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) saying, "Whenever a Muslim supplicates for his (Muslim) brother in his absence, the angels say: `May the same be for you too'.'' [Muslim].

Commentary: This Hadith makes it evident that one who prays for someone in his absence also stands to benefit from it because the angel appointed 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.''

Abud-Darda' (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, "The supplication of a Muslim for his (Muslim) brother in his absence will certainly be answered. Every time 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: So the advantage of praying for the iman, safety, health, prosperity, or any good, for another Muslim, is that we have an angel make the same du'a for us. When a person thinks selfishly, they are selfish even in their prayers; why pray for someone instead of for ourselves only, why pray for a Muslim in some remote part of the world? This hadith provides incentive even for a selfish person to make du'a for all Muslim brothers and sisters.

so sweet isn't it? let's be caring and always pray for our parents, family, sahabahs and others insyaAllah may Allah help us in everything we do.

Allah, the Exalted, says:
"And those who came after them say: `Our Rubb! Forgive us and our brethren who have preceded us in Faith.''' (59:10)

"And ask forgiveness for your sin, and also for (the sin of) believing men and believing women''. (47:19)

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