Reference for Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) making du’a for the ummah in every Salah

Question

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

Nabi (sallallahu ‘alayhi wasallam) made du’a for Aishah (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.

Answer

The full narration is as follows:

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

“O Allah! forgive all Aishah’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 Haithami (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.
