|Q.) Please kindly enlighten me on the subject of Mustajabud Da'waat with examples if possible. Jazakallah. [Dr.Mohammed Ameen]|
A.) Mustajaab-ut-Da'awaat are a group of pious servants of Allah Ta'ala favoured by Him with the gift of the definite acceptance of their supplications (Du'as). All the Ambiya, alayhimu salam, were bestowed with this gift. Similarly, many Sahaaba-e-Kiraam were also bestowed with the gift. One such person was Uways al-Qarni, Radi-Allahu anhu. He was present at the time of Rasulullah but did not become a Sahabi as he was engaged in the service of his mother.
Sayyidna Umar, Radi-Allahu anhu, narrates that Rasulullah once told him, "A man by the name of Uways will come to you from Yemen. He will have no family in Yemen save for his mother. He (Uways) previously suffered with the illness of white liver, but upon supplicating to Allah Ta'ala, he was cured except for a small portion of his skin the size of a Dinaar or a Dirham. Whosoever amongst you (the Sahaba) meets him, should request him to make Du'a-e-Maghfirat (Du'a for forgiveness) for you." (Mishkaat pg.581; Delhi)
The Advice of Rasulullah to the Sahaba, Radi-Allahu anhu, to seek Du'a-e-Maghfirat on behalf of themselves from Sayyidna Uways al-Qarni, Radi-Allahu anhu, is in itself indicative of him being from amongst the Mustajab-e-Da'awaat. Apart from the Mustajab-e-Da'awaat, Nabi mentioned that the Du'as of certain people are readily accepted.
Consider the following Ahadith:
And Allah Ta'ala Knows Best
