Shaykh Al-Kalbaani, former Imam of the Ka'bah, at a conference in London told this story:
When he was young, he was a very naughty boy. He would make his mother angry. But his mother, Allah bless her, was a very righteous woman and she knew the power of Du'a.
She made it her habit that, in her anger at him, she would say this Du'a: "May Allah guide YOU! And make you the IMAM of the Ka'bah!"
Imam Al-Kalbani told us, "so Allah answered her du'a and I went on to become the Imam of the Ka'bah!"
Shaykh Adil Kalbani is the son of a poor immigrant from the Persian Gulf. In an interview with NYTimes, Shaykh Kalbani said, "Leading prayers at the Grand Mosque is an extraordinary honor, usually reserved for pure-blooded Arabs from the Saudi heartland."
He was taken aback when he came to know that King Abdullah had chosen him as the first black Imam of Masjid al-Haram (in recent times), he added. Masha Allah!
Never underestimate the power of dua and the dua of the parent is not rejected, so make a good dua!
