What is the status of this narration?
قد روي عن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أنه قال: ما أحد يدعو عند الميزاب إلا استجيب له
It has been reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: Whoever supplicates at the Mizab [The water spout/gutter of the Ka’bah], his du’a will be accepted.
I have not come across this as a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in any primary Hadith source. Certain Fuqaha (Jurists) have cited this narration as a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).
Imam Azraqi (rahimahullah) has recorded the following narration, with two chains as the statement of the famous Tabi’i; ‘Ata ibn Abi Rabah (rahimahullah) and not as a Hadith of Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam):
‘Ata ibn Abi Rabah (rahimahullah) said: “Whoever stands by the drain of the Ka’bah and makes du’a, his du’a will be answered and he returns [free of sins] like the day his mother gave birth to him.”
