Angels say, 'Ameen'

'Shouldn't I desire that the Angels supplicate for me.'

The Dua of a Muslim for his brother (in Islam) in his absence is readily accepted.

An Angel is appointed to his side, whenever he makes a beneficial Dua for his brother, the appointed Angel says ‘Aameen, and may you be blessed with the same.’

In Saheeh Muslim and Sunan Ibn Majah, it is narrated from Abu Darda that the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa-sallam) said, 'The Dua of a person for his Muslim brother in his absence will be answered. At his head there is an angel, and every time he prays for him for something good, the angel who has been appointed to be with him, says, 'Ameen, may you have likewise.'

In light of this Hadeeth, two kinds of people achieve the merit of the Angel's saying, 'Ameen' First are those absent Muslims for whom the supplication is performed because the Angel says, 'Ameen' for such a supplication, which means, 'O Allah, accept this Dua for the absent Muslim.' The second category of people contains those people who supplicate for the absent Muslims because the Angel says, 'and for you too' after, 'Ameen,' meaning may Allah grant you the same. 

Imam an-Nawawi (rahimahullah) writes in the explanation of this Hadeeth, 'The excellence of supplicating for the absent Muslims is mentioned in this Hadeeth. This merit will be achieved even if one were to supplicate for a group of Muslims. Also, if one supplicates for the whole Muslim Ummah, he will have achieved the same advantage, as is known from the apparent meaning of the Hadeeth. 

Hafidh Dhahabi (rahimahullah) relates from Umm ad-Darda that Abu Darda had 380 Muslim friends, for whom he would supplicate in his prayer. His wife inquired about the issue and he replied, 'Shouldn't I desire that the Angels supplicate for me.'
