Dua’ Is Answered on Wednesdays Between Dhuhr and ‘Asr (InshaAllah)
جابر بن عبد الله يقول : دَعَا رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فِي هَذَا المَسْجِدِ ، مَسْجِدُ الفَتْحِ ، يَوْمَ الاثْنَيْنَ وَيَوْمَ الثَلاَثَاءِ وَيَوْمَ الأَرْبَعَاءِ ، فَاسْتَجَيْبَ لَهُ بَيْنَ الصَّلاَتَيْنَ مِنْ يَوْمَ الأَرْبَعَاءِ قَالَ جَابِرُ : وَلَمْ يَنْزِلْ بِي أَمْرٌ مُهِّمٌ غَائِظٌ إِلاَ تُوَّخَيْتُ تِلْكَ السَّاعَةَ ، فَدَعَوتُ اللهَ فِيهِ بَيْنَ الصَّلاَتَيْنَ يَومَ الأَرْبَعَاءِ فِي تِلْكَ السَّاعَةَ ، إِلاَ عَرَفْتُ الإِجَابَةَ
“Jabir Ibn ‘Abdullah (may Allaah be pleased with him )said, “ The Messenger of Allaah ﷺ
supplicated to Allaah in this masjid(Masjid Al-Fath) on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
His dua was answered on Wednesday between the prayers of Dhuhr and Asr.
Jabir(may Allaah be pleased with him)said,” There wasn’t anything that was crucially important for me to have solved, except I called on Allaah during that hour of the day between Dhuhr and Asr knowing He would answer.”
Collected by Imam Al-Bukhari in Adab Al-Mufrad (703)
Graded Hasan by Shaykh Al-Albani(May Allaah have mercy upon him) in Saheeh Adab Al-Mufrad.
“His dua was answered on Wednesday between the prayers of Dhuhr and Asr” . Shaykh Al-Albani(may Allâah shower him with mercy) commented on this saying: If this companion wouldn’t have narrated to us that the Prophet ﷺ
made Dua to Allâah during this hour we wouldn’t have known.
The person present witnesses what the absent person doesn’t. This ahadeeth has significant meaning; since Jabir narrated the information when exactly his dua was answered.
And this shows that the Dua for the Messenger ﷺ was answered at that hour during Wednesday.
Consequently Jabir began to do that same thing he saw the Prophet ﷺ do on Wednesday between Dhuhr and Asr. End of Quote from the book.
Ibn Taymeeyah (728H) said in his book “ Iqtedahus Siratul Mustaqeem (1/433), ” A group of our companions and other people act by this hadeeth.
They see to it that they call on Allâah during this time; as narrated by Jabir(may Allâah be pleased with him). The place where Jabir made Dua to Allâah isn’t mentioned, but the time period in which he did is mentioned.
