Don’t rely upon someone else making dua for you

س: هل طلب الدعاء من أي مسلم فيه شيئ

ج: لا أعلم مانعا من هذا

بأنّ جاء غير واحد إلا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم

فجاء ذلك الأعمى وقال يا رسول الله قد شق علي ذهاب بصري فادع الله لي

وما أنكر عليه النبي صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم

والنبي صلى الله عليه وعلى آله وسلم دعا لغير واحد

فلا أعلم مانعا لكن لا ينبغي للشخص أن يعتقد على دعاء القرين

فإن الله عز وجل يقول في كتابه الكريم

 

وَقَالَ رَبُّڪُمُ ٱدۡعُونِىٓ أَسۡتَجِبۡ لَكُمۡۚ

ويقول

وَإِذَا سَأَلَكَ عِبَادِى عَنِّى فَإِنِّى قَرِيبٌ‌ۖ أُجِيبُ دَعۡوَةَ ٱلدَّاعِ إِذَا دَعَانِ‌ۖ فَلۡيَسۡتَجِيبُواْ لِى وَلۡيُؤۡمِنُواْ بِى لَعَلَّهُمۡ يَرۡشُدُونَ

 

Question: Is there anything wrong with asking a Muslim to make dua for you?

 

Answer (by Shaikh Muqbil): I don’t know of anything to prevent this.  Because people came to the Messenger of Allah – sallallahu alayhe wa alaa aalihi wa sallam (while he was alive and asked him to make dua for them).  And the blind man came to him and said, O Messenger of Allah, the loss of my eyesight has become very difficult for me, so make dua to Allah for me.  And the Prophet – sallallahu alayhe wa alaa aalihi wa sallam – did not refuse to do that for him.

 

So I do not know of anything to prevent this.  However, it is not befitting for someone to rely upon the dua of his companion, for indeed Allaah (God, The Creator) – Lofty and Exalted is He – says in His Noble Book:

 

‘And your Lord has said: “Call upon Me (Alone), and I will answer you” (40:60)

 

and And when My slaves ask you (O Muhammad) concerning Me, then (answer them), I am indeed near (to them by My Knowledge). I respond to the invocations of the supplicant when he calls on Me (without any mediator or intercessor). So let them obey Me and believe in Me, so that they may be led aright.”1 (2:186)…..
