Did our Noble Prophet (may peace and blessings be upon him) make duas for the Quraysh who hit him and called him bad names (magician, liar, poet, madman)

  • My question is what kind of du'a you mean? Positive asking Allah to forgive them or negative asking Allah to I.e destroy them. Both kinds may exist. – Medi1Saif Oct 5 at 17:20

Yes, he did.

When the Quraysh were dying of famine, the Prophet (ﷺ) prayed for rain to ease their misery.

Another example is the Prophet's (ﷺ) dua for either Abu Jahl (staunch enemy) or Umar Ibn Al Khattab (not a Muslim at the time) to embrace Islam, which was answered when Umar Ibn Al Khattab (RA) was guided and became Muslim.

A third example is the mother of Abu Huairah who insulted the Prophet (ﷺ) yet upon request the Prophet (ﷺ) prayed for her guidance and she ended up embracing Islam, making Abu Huraiah (RA) very happy.

The list of examples goes on.

  • The mother of Abu Hurairah is not from Quraish but from Daws. And the famine in the first hadith came from a prior du'a of the prophet too. – Medi1Saif Oct 5 at 17:19
  • "the famine in the first hadith came from a prior du'a of the prophet too" - Your point being what, exactly? Doesn't change that he made the follow up dua I referenced to relieve them of their misery. – Muslimah يا رب العالمين Oct 5 at 23:00
  • Abu Hurairah is from among "the Prophet's people" i.e., nation. This is how I answered the question.. based on those close to him/his followers and not specifically just from the Quraysh. FYI. It's not specified that Quraysh-only answers are being requested. Nevetheless, the first two are Quraish related. – Muslimah يا رب العالمين Oct 5 at 23:08
  • @Muslimahياربالعالمين this is the wording of the question which anybody can read: "Did our Noble Prophet (may peace and blessings be upon him) make duas for the Quraysh who hit him and called him bad names (magician, liar, poet, madman)“ – Medi1Saif Oct 6 at 7:43
