The du’a of a sick person

Question

Can you please confirm the authenticity of this narration:

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “When you visit a sick person, then ask him to make du’a for you for his du’as are [readily accepted] like the du’a of the Angels”

 

Answer

The chain for this narration is quite weak.

(Sunan Ibn Majah, Hadith: 1441 & ‘Amalul Yawmi Wal Laylah of Imam Ibnus Sunni, Hadith: 558. Refer: Targhib, vol. 4 pg. 322, Fathul Bari, Hadith: 5661 and Nataijul Afkar, vol. 4 pg. 243/244 )

 

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
