Du’as accepted upon seeing the Ka’bah

Question

Du’as are readily accepted at the first sighting of the Kabah. Is this a Hadith?

 

Answer

Sayyiduna Abu Umamah (radiyallahu’anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu’alayhi wasallam) said:

‘The doors of the sky open and du’as are accepted on four occasions;

a) When the armies clash in war

b) When rain falls

c) At the time of iqamah [for salah]

d) When looking at the Ka’bah.’

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best,
