The Messenger for Mercy ProphetMuhammad sallallahu alaihi wasallam encouraged us to make dua for ALLAH to guide the misguided people instead of cursing them.
Imam Abu Huraira may ALLAH be pleased with him reported: At-Tufail 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, the Prophet said, “Verily, I have not been sent to invoke curses, but rather I was sent as mercy.” Saheeh Bukhari 4131, Saheeh Muslim 2524. Grade: Muttafaqun Alayhi (authenticity agreed upon) according to Al-Bukhari and Muslim.
Let's strive to do daawah to non Muslims around us especially our relatives who are not yet Muslims and pray that ALLAH guide them to join us instead cursing and hating them. Only ALLAH guide whom HE wishes as such let's pray for ALLAH to guide them else if you don't pray for them and do daawah to them till they die, then your prayers cannot do anything to help them even if they are your parents.
