Tawus (rahimahullah) showed great importance to du’a after ‘Asr on Jumu’ah

Question

Is the following narration recorded in Musannaf ‘Abdur Razzaq? I have failed to locate it therein.

عن ابن طاوس عن أبيه أنه كان يتحرى الساعة التي يستجاب فيها الدعاء من يوم الجمعة بعد العصر. قال ابن طاوس: ومات أبي في ساعة كان يحبها، مات يوم الجمعة بعد العصر

 

Answer

This narration is indeed recorded in Musannaf ‘Abdur Razzaq.

(Musannaf ‘Abdur Razzaq, Hadith: 5574)

 

Translation

The son of Tawus (rahimahullah) relates regarding his father: “My father would aspire and make an all out effort to achieve the time in which du’as are accepted on a Friday, after ‘Asr Salah.” He further states, “My father passed away at a time he loved. He passed away on a Friday after ‘Asr.”

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
