Another version of the narration regarding every Nabi having an accepted du’a

Question

Is this Hadith authentic?

لكل نبي دعوة فأريد إن شاء الله أن أختبي دعوتي شفاعة لأمتي يوم القيامة

 

Answer

Imams Bukhari and Muslim (rahimahumallah) have recorded this Hadith. It is therefore authentic.

Sayyiduna Abu Hurayrah (radiyallahu ‘anhu) reported that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: “Every Nabi had an [accepted] du’a. I wish -if Allah wills- to reserve mine to intercede for my Ummah on the day of Qiyamah.”

(Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 7474, Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 198. Also see: Sahih Bukhari, Hadith: 6304-6305 and Sahih Muslim, Hadith: 199-200)
