Another narration regarding the du’a of a sick person

Can you please confirm the authenticity of this narration?

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said:

“The du’a of a sick person is not rejected until he recovers from his sickness.”


Imam Abu Bakr ibn Abid Dunya (rahimahullah) has recorded this narration on the authority of Sayyiduna ‘Abdullah ibn ‘Abbas (radiyallahu ‘anhuma) with an extremely weak chain.

(Al Marad Wal Kaffarat, Hadith: 70. Also see: Shu’abul Iman, Hadith: 9555. Refer: Mizanul I’tidal, vol. 2 pg. 531, number: 4778)

And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.

It should be noted that the du’a of the sick being more readily accepted by Allah Ta’ala has other broader supports too.
