ABU HURAIRA : THE CONVERSION OF HIS MOTHER UPON THE PROPHET'S PRAYERS
Abu Huraira had a wonderful attitude with the Prophet, peace be upon him. His mother was not a Muslim, and she refused to embrace Islam.
However, he never stopped asking her to follow Allah. Each time he went to talk to her about Islam, she replied very harshly.
So once when he went to her, she said very bad things about the Prophet, peace be upon him, and insulted him. He went to the Prophet, peace be upon him, crying. The Prophet, pbuh, asked him what was wrong.
"My mother, Allah's messenger, refuses Islam. And I asked her today to embrace Islam, and she said words about you which I hate. So pray to Allah, Allah's messenger, to guide my mother." ...
The Prophet pbuh raised his hands to the sky and said: "O Allah! Guide Abu Huraira's mother. O Allah! Guide Abu Huraira's mother!"
He said: "I left the Prophet pbuh, and returned to my home while I was cheerful by his invocation, until I reached home. My mother heard my footsteps.
Before I knocked on the door, she said: "Abu huraira, stay in your place"
I was afraid, so I stopped. So she opened the door and said: "Abu Huraira. There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah."
So I returned to the Prophet, crying again.
I said: "rejoice Allah's messenger! Allah has accepted for your prayer!"
The Prophet pbuh sat down, thanking Allah. So when Abu Huraira found that the Prophet?s prayers are being accepted, he asked him for another prayer!
So he asked the Prophet pbuh, peace be upon him, to pray for him and his mother, that all believers love them and that they love all believers.
So the Prophet pbuh raised his hands to the sky and said: "O Allah! Make the believers love this servant, and make him love the believers".
Abu huraira said: "So every believer who heard about me, even if he didn't meet me until the Day of Judgment, loved me".
