I wanted to know the authenticity/reference of the following narration. The summary is:

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) made du’a for ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu’anha) due to which she became very happy. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said I make this du’a for my Ummah every day.

Please assist.


The full narration is as follows:

Once ‘Aaishah (radiyallahu’anha) requested that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) make du’a for her. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) supplicated:

“O Allah! forgive all ‘Aaishah’s sins; the past and future and what was done in secrecy or in public.”

Aishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) became extremely happy. Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) said: “This is my du’a for my Ummah in every Salah.”

This is recorded in Sahih Ibn Hibban; Al Ihsan, Hadith: 7111 and Musnad Bazzar.

‘Allamah Haythami (rahimahullah) says: “The narrators are reliable.” (Majma’uz Zawaid 9/243-244)

Also see: Hayatus Sahabah, vol. 3, pg. 339.


And Allah Ta’ala knows best.
