Imam Malik (Rahimahullah) was asked by the Khalif Abu Ja’far al-Mansur: “Shall I face the Qibla with my back towards the grave of the Messenger of Allah (sallAllahu alaihi wa aalihi wasallam) when making du’a?” Imam Malik replied, “How could you turn your face away from himﷺ when he is your means (wasila/intercessor) and your father Adam’s means to Allah on the Day of Rising? No, rather you should face himﷺ and ask for his intercession so that Almighty Allah will grant it to you, for Allah said, ‘If they had only, when they were unjust to themselves, come to you and asked Allah’s forgiveness, and the Messenger had asked forgiveness for them, they would have found Allah Oft-Returning, Most Merciful (Q4:64)’.”Subhan’Allah this is the creed of the Ahle Sunna Wa Jamaat and now we present the authentic chain for this narration.Narrated by Qadi ‘Iyad in his Shifa’ (2:26-27) and Tartib al-Madarik (1:113-14) with an authentic chain. The chain is as follows: a group of the teachers of Qadi ‘Iyad narrated to him from Abu’l Abbas Ahmad ibn Dalhath (one of the Shuyukh of Ibn ‘Abd al-Barr, who is “thiqa hafidh” – Siyar 18:567), from Abu’l Hasan ‘Ali ibn al-Fihri (one of the Shuyukh of Bayhaqi, d. 488H, “muhaqqiq” – Dhahabi’s ‘Ibar 1:227), from Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn al-Faraj al-Jaza’iri (“thiqa” according to Ibn Mundhir – Sam’ani in Ansab 2:55), from Abu’l Hasan ibn al-Muntab (the Qadi of Madina in his time, and one of the top Huffaz of the Malikis – Ibn Farhun in Dibaj and Sakhawi in Tuhfa Latifa), from Ya’qub ibn Ishaq (one of the Shuyukh of Tabarani; Daraqutni: “la ba’sa bih” – Khatib in Tarikh 14:291), from Khalid ibn Humayd al-Iskandarani (d. 169H, a faqih among the companions of Imam Malik – see Tartib al-Madarik 1:178 and Khafaji’s Nasim ar-Riyad 3:397; this is not Ibn Humayd ar-Razi as some have claimed), from Imam Malik (d. 179H).

Narrated by Sayyidina Anas bin Maalik radi Allahu anhu :

Before seeking refuge in the cave (during the time of Hijrah), Sayyidina Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu told RasoolAllahﷺ, “Yaa RasoolAllahﷺ ! Allow me to step inside the cave first so that if there is some snake or some other wild animal, it will hurt me and not you.”

RasoolAllahﷺ allowed him and he entered the cave. He found many snake-holes inside. He tore off his robes and covered the snake-holes with his clothes.

After he stepped out, RasoolAllahﷺ asked him, “What happened to your clothes?”

Sayyidina Abu Bakr told himﷺ the whole matter.

Thereafter RasoolAllahﷺ raised both of his blessed hands and made dua, “Yaa Allah ! On the day of judgement, keep Abu Bakr with me in my ranks.”

Wahy was sent down that the duaa had been accepted.
