Hadith on Guidance: The Prophet supplicates to guide the unbelievers, not destroy them

April 23, 2016

Abu Huraira reported: At-Tufail came with his companions and they said, “O Messenger of Allah, the tribe of Daws has disbelieved and rejected you, so pray to Allah against them.” And it was said, “May the tribe of Daws be destroyed!” The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “O Allah, guide the tribe of Daws and bring them to me.

In another narration, the Prophet said, “Verily, I have not been sent to invoke curses, but rather I was sent as mercy.”

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ قَدِمَ الطُّفَيْلُ وَأَصْحَابُهُ فَقَالُوا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنَّ دَوْسًا قَدْ كَفَرَتْ وَأَبَتْ فَادْعُ اللَّهَ عَلَيْهَا فَقِيلَ هَلَكَتْ دَوْسٌ فَقَالَ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ اللَّهُمَّ اهْدِ دَوْسًا وَائْتِ بِهِمْ

وفي رواية أخرى قال إِنِّي لَمْ أُبْعَثْ لَعَّانًا وَإِنَّمَا بُعِثْتُ رَحْمَةً
