How to supplicate for others


Ibn `Abbas narrated from Ubayy bin Ka`b that :

whenever the Allah’s massanger (saws ) would mention someone and supplicate for him, he would begin with himself (saws ).

Sahih (Darussalam)

Jami` at-Tirmidhi 3385
In-book : Book 48, Hadith 16
* When supplicating for others, one should begin with himself, because every one is in need of Allah’s mercy. Supplicating for others only gives an impression that he himself is not in need of Allah’s mercy and he is asking
Allah (swt) to have mercy on others.
