It has been stated in a Hadith that the Holy Prophet Allah's peace and blessings be upon him said:

“There are three such people whose Dua's are accepted instantly:

1) The dua of an oppressed person.

2) The dua of a traveller.

3) A mother's Dua for her child.

Allow me to tell you a story of a person who used to live before our Prophet Allah's peace and blessings be upon him. This person was a monk, who used to live in a church, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week just worshiping. His name was Juraij. One day, Juraij was in his prayer when his mother came, and called out to him. Juraij thought to himself, my Mother or Allah, he gave preference to his prayer and left his mother standing. This happened thrice. On the third time, his mother got up and cursed him saying, “May Allah not give you death, until you see a prostitute”.

Inside the church, there used to be a shepherd who had committed adultery with a girl. He used to come every now and then from the neighbouring town. When this woman got pregnant and gave birth, she was taken to the presence of the King and when the king asked her, she blamed Juraij for being the father of her child. The king had ordered that Juraij‘s church be demolished, he be handcuffed and be bought to him.

When he was brought to the presence of the king, the king said to him, “Do you know what this woman is claiming?” Juraij asked, “What is she claiming?” The king said, “She claims that her son is from you”. Juraij started laughing. After a while, Juraij asked the baby, “Who is your father?” He replied “The shepherd”. The king said, “Oh Juraij, shall we make your church out of gold”. He replied, “No”.

Then he asked, How about silver? He replied, “No” he said. “Just restore it to its previous state”. Then the king said “Let me ask you one question why were you laughing? He replied, “This business is between my mother and me.

Let me tell you another story. Once Hazrat Musa Alayhis Salam asked Allah Taa'la, “Who will be with me in paradise? Allah Taa'la replied, “Such and such person, a butcher he will be.

Hazarat Musa Alayhis Salam was curious to know which deed it is which will make him a neighbour of a Prophet, so he went to spend the day with him to find out what deed it was, so he found out that every day after work he used to go home and clean his mothers waste and feed her food. Upon this, his mother used to make dua for him that may Allah make you the neighbour of a Prophet.
