`Umar bin Al-Khattab (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I sought permission of the Prophet (PBUH)
to perform `Umrah. He granted me leave and said,
"Dear brother! Do not forget us in your supplications".
added): This is something I would not exchange for the whole world.
Another narration is: He (PBUH) said,
"Include us, my dear brother, in your supplications.''
[Abu Dawud and At-
Tirmidhi, who categorized the Hadith as Hasan Sahih. Sheikh Salim Al-Hilali in his book "Bahjatun-Nazireen,
Sharh Riyad-us-Saliheen'' classifies it as "Da`if'', the reason being that `Asim bin `Abdullah is "weak'' in narration].
It is Mustahab
to request such a person for prayer who is proceeding on a journey,
especially one who is going with the intention of Hajj or `Umrah. The reason being:
1. Prayer for someone in his absence is imbued with sincerity.
2. The places a pilgrim visits in the course of Hajj are such that prayers made there are accepted by Allah.
3. It is also Mustahab that during the course of Hajj when a pilgrim supplicates on special sites and occasions, he
should not pray for himself alone but also include his relatives and friends in his supplications.
4. The act of praying for others goes to prove the eminence of religious fraternity of the Muslims. The Prophet
(PBUH) is the spiritual father of the entire Muslim community, and is the most superior in nobility and excellence in
the whole universe, but in respect of Faith, he is also a brother of all the Muslims and all the Muslims are his
brothers. It is illustrated by the fact that he called `Umar (May Allah be pleased with him) his brother.

Ibn `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) reported:
The Prophet (PBUH) used to visit Quba', either
mounted or on foot and would offer two Rak`ah prayer in the mosque there.
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].
Another narration is:
The Prophet (PBUH) used to visit the mosque at Quba' every Saturday (i.e., every week) either
mounted or on foot, and Ibn `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) used to do the same thing.
1.Quba' was a village about two miles away from Al-Madinah. Now, it is a part of the city. According to a Hadith,
the Prophet (PBUH) has regarded the performance of one Salat there equal to an `Umrah. (At-Tirmidhi, Al-Jami`
2. This Hadith also shows the passion which Ibn `Umar (May Allah be pleased with them) had for following the
Sunnah for which he is well-reputed.
