Hujjat-ul-Islam Wal Muslemeen Abedi, stating that the prophets as well as the infallible personalities used to pray for others before praying for themselves, added: Praying first for others and then for oneself was one of the famous characteristics of Hazrat Zahra (AS) because as narrated by Imam Hassan Mojtaba (AS), He said, “I saw my mother, in her midnight prayers, She prayed for others in her entire prayers, when I asked her the reason for why she did pray for others at her first stage? She replied: O my son! We prefer first for others especially neighbours’ and then for Ourselves.”
The English-speaking preacher said: “Praying for others has three great benefits, firstly, achieving the double of what God has bestowed on others, secondly, increasing sustenance, and thirdly, the privilege of having Duas of the angels because of praying for others.”
