Prayers of Prophet PBUH accepted by Allah swt

Note: These are only few prayers, surely there are a lot of prayers of Prophet peace be upon him which are accepted by Allah

1. Prayer of Prophet Peace be upon him to prevent the drought
Narrated Anas bin Malik: Once in the lifetime of the Prophet (p.b.u.h) the people were afflicted with drought (famine). While the Prophet was delivering the Khutba on a Friday, a Bedouin stood up and said, “O, Allah’s Apostle! Our possessions are being destroyed and the children are hungry; Please invoke Allah (for rain)”. So the Prophet raised his hands. At that time there was not a trace of cloud in the sky. By Him in Whose Hands my soul is as soon as he lowered his hands, clouds gathered like mountains, and before he got down from the pulpit, I saw the rain falling on the beard of the Prophet. It rained that day, the next day, the third day, the fourth day till the next Friday. The same Bedouin or another man stood up and said, “O Allah’s Apostle!

The houses have collapsed, our possessions and livestock have been drowned; Please invoke Allah (to protect us)”. So the Prophet I raised both his hands and said, “O Allah! Round about us and not on us”. So, in whatever direction he pointed with his hands, the clouds dispersed and cleared away, and Medina’s (sky) became clear as a hole in between the clouds. The valley of Qanat remained flooded, for one month, none came from outside but talked about the abundant rain. (Bukhari Book #13, Hadith #55)

2. Prayer of Prophet peace be upon him for Anas ra
Anas reported: My mother Umm Anas came to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him). And she prepared my lower garment out of the half of her headdress and (with the other half) she covered my upper body and said: Allah’s Messenger, here is my son Unais; I have brought him to you for serving you. Invoke blessings of Allah upon him. Thereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: O Allah, make an increase in his wealth, and progeny. Anas said: By Allah, my fortune is huge and my children, and grand-children are now more than onehundred. (Muslim Book #031, Hadith #6063)

3. Prayer of Prophet peace be upon him for Abu Huraira ra
Narrated Abu huraira: The people say that Abu huraira narrates too many narrations. In fact Allah knows whether I say the truth or not. They also ask, “Why do the emigrants and the Ansar not narrate as he does?” In fact, my emigrant brethren were busy trading in the markets, and my Ansar brethren were busy with their properties. I was a poor man keeping the company of Allah’s Apostle and was satisfied with what filled my stomach. So, I used to be present while they (i.e. the emigrants and the Ansar) were absent, and I used to remember while they forgot (the Hadith). One day the Prophet said, “Whoever spreads his sheet till I finish this statement of mine and then gathers it on his chest, will never forget anything of my statement.” So, I spread my covering sheet which was the only garment I had, till the Prophet finished his statement and then I gathered it over my chest. By Him Who had sent him (i.e. Allah’s Apostle) with the truth, since then I did not forget even a single word of that statement of his, until this day of mine. By Allah, but for two verses in Allah’s Book, I would never have related any narration (from the Prophet). (These two verses are): “Verily! Those who conceal the clear signs and the guidance which we have sent down …..(up to) the Merciful.’ (2.159-160) (Bukhari Book#39, Hadith #540)

4. Prayer of Prophet peace be upon him for the mother of Abu Huraira ra
Abu huraira reported: I invited my mother, who was a polytlieist, to islam. I invited her one day and she said to me something about Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) which I hated. I came to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) weeping and said: Allah’s Messenger, I invited my mother to islam but she did not accept (my invitation). I invited her today but she said to me something which I did not like. (Kindly) supplicate Allah that He may set the mother of Abu huraira right. Thereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: O Allah, set the mother of Abu huraira on the right path. I came out quite pleased with the supplication of Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) and when I came near the door it was closed from within. My mother heard the noise of my footsteps and she said: Abu huraira, just wait, and I heard the noiee of falling of water. She took a bath and put on the shirt and quickly covered her head with a headdress and opened the door and then said: Abu huraira, I bear witness to the fact that there is no god but Allah and Mubammad is His bondsman and His Messenger. He (Abu huraira) said: I went back to Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) and (this time) I was shedding the tears of joy. I said: Allah’s Messenger, be happy, for Allah has responded to your supplication and He has set on the right path the mother of Abu huraira. He (the Holy Prophet) praised Allah, and extolled Him and uttered good words. I said: Allah’s Messenger, supplicate to Allah so that He may instil love of mine and that of my mother too in the believing servants and let our hearts be filled with their love, whereupon Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: O Allah, let there be love of these servants of yours, i. e. Abu huraira and his mother, in the hearts of the believing servants and let their hearts be filled with the love of the believing servants. (Abu huraira said: This prayer) was so well granted by Allah that no believer was ever born who heard of me and who saw me but did not love me. (Muslim Book#031, Hadith #6082)

5. Prayer of the Prophet for Ibn Abbas ra
Ibn ‘abbas reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) came to privy and I placed for him water for ablution, When he came out he said: Who placed it here? And in a version of Zuhair they (the Companions) said, and in the version of Abu Bakr (the words are): I said: It is Ibn ‘abbas (who has done that), whereupon he (the Holy Prophet) said: May Allah grant him deep understanding of religion. (Muslim Book #031, Hadith #6055)

The prayer was accepted that is why Umar ra considered Ibn Abbasr ra in elder companions and he used to take advices from him, Ibn Masood ra said “Ibn Abbas ra is very nice Interpreter of Qur’an” [al-Musannif Abdul Razzaq no: 2219,2220]

6. Prayer of the Prophet for Muawiyah ra
Prophet Peace be upon him said ” O Allah ! Teach Muawya the Book and Math, and protect him from the Punishment ” [Ibne Asakir 16/684,686,Dahabee in Seyar al Ailam al Nubala 8/38, Musnad Shameen 190]

sh Al-AlBani Said: “The Chain is Good.according to me Rout is Strong, Narrators are trustworthy and are those of Sahih Muslim except Ibne Abi Omair who is Companion(of Prophet peace be upon him) Some other routs say “”Allah, make him (Muawiya) guided, a guider, and guide people through him”. (Silsilah As Saheeha Vol 7 page no: 690 hadith no: 3227)
