Dua of Anas bin Malik (RA)
Answered By: Mufti Ikram ul Haq - Fatwa Center of America

Asalamu alaikum Mufti Sahib Regarding the dua of Anas bin Malik, is it true that when he was summoned before Hajjaj bin Yusuf he recited it and Hajjaj saw a lion standing on either side of Hazrat Anas (RA)? And that due to fear Hajjaj thenceforth dismissed Hazrat Anas from his court? If so, in what book of hadith can this story be found? Jazakallahu khair


بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

I am not aware of the story mentioned in your question. Neither do I have any knowledge of a specific Dua of Anas Bin Malik (R.A) except that the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihe Wa Sallam prayer for him by saying "O' Allah place Blessings in the wealth and progeny of Anas" and therefore he had many many children as a result of the Duaa of the Holy Prophet Sallalahu Alaihe Wa Sallam for him.

And Allah knows best.
