Can we as Muslims pray to Allah swt for Forgiveness for non Muslims


Is it permissible for a Muslim to pray for the forgiveness of non Muslims? I observe that out Sunni brothers are against this practice.


Salam alaykum,

Thank you for your question. According to the office of Ayatullah al-Udhmah Sistani in Qum, it is possible to pray for God to decrease their punishment or guide them to the straight path. I hope this helps. Thanks again for your question.
