Hadith on Dua: The Prophet supplicates to guide unbelievers

Abu Huraira reported: Al-Tufayl came with his companions and they said, “O Messenger of Allah, the tribe of Daws has disbelieved and rejected you, so pray to Allah against them.” And it was said, “May the tribe of Daws be destroyed!” The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “O Allah, guide the tribe of Daws and bring them to me.

In another narration, Abu Huraira said: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, faced the Qiblah and raised his hands. The people thought he was going to supplicate against them, but he said, “O Allah, guide the tribe of Daws and bring them to me.

عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ قَدِمَ الطُّفَيْلُ وَأَصْحَابُهُ فَقَالُوا يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ إِنَّ دَوْسًا قَدْ كَفَرَتْ وَأَبَتْ فَادْعُ اللَّهَ عَلَيْهَا فَقِيلَ هَلَكَتْ دَوْسٌ فَقَالَ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ اللَّهُمَّ اهْدِ دَوْسًا وَائْتِ بِهِمْ

وفي رواية أخرى قال أبو هريرة فَاسْتَقْبَلَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم الْقِبْلَةَ وَرَفَعَ يَدَيْهِ فَظَنَّ النَّاسُ أَنَّهُ يَدْعُو عَلَيْهِمْ فَقَالَ‏ اللَّهُمَّ اهْدِ دَوْسًا وَائْتِ بِهِمْ
