Is it true that Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) asked forgiveness for himself, his mother and for anyone who asked for forgiveness for them.
Yes, this is recorded by Imam Bukhari (rahimahullah) in his book: Al-Adabul Mufrad, Hadith: 37.
After citing this narration, Imam Muhammad ibn Sirin (rahimahullah) said: ‘I also seek forgiveness for them two, so that I may be included in Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah’s du’a too.’
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
