Authenticity of a du’a made for Sayyiduna ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhu) and his children


What is status of following Hadith?

قال النبيُّ صلَّى اللهُ عليهِ وسلَّمَ للعباسِ إذا كان غداةَ الاثنينِ فأتِنِي أنت وولدُك حتى أدعوَ لهم بدعوةٍ ينفعُك اللهُ بها وولدَك فغدا وغدونا معَه وألبسنا كساءَه ثم قال اللهمَّ اغفرْ للعباسِ ولولدِه مغفرةً ظاهرةً وباطنةً لا تغادرُ ذنبًا اللهمَّ احفظْه في ولدِه



This Hadith is recorded by Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) in his Sunan, Hadith: 3762.

Imam Tirmidhi (rahimahullah) has declared this Hadith as sound (hasan gharib).

‘Allamah Dhahabi (rahimahullah) has graded one chain as good (jayyid).

(Siyar A’lamin Nubala, vol. 2 pg. 89)

The underlined part of the Hadith is famously recited in some Arabic Friday-Khutbahs.



Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu’anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) once told Sayyiduna ‘Abbas (radiyallahu’anhu):

‘Bring your children to me on Monday morning, so I can make a du’a that will benefit you and your children.’

The next day He (‘Abbas (radiyallahu’anhu) went, and we followed.

Nabi (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) put his garment on us and then said:

‘O Allah, grant ‘Abbas and his children inner and outer forgiveness which leaves behind no sin [on them]. O Allah protect his children.’



And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
