Durood e Shareef: 1. There was idol worship, star worship, fire worship, materialism, wind worship or in other words self conceit was rampant in the world before the messengership of the blessed prophet. The Holy Prophet (ﷺ) has founded the worship of Almighty Allah with his auspicious hands and due to His sacred arrival the entire world became the centre of monotheism. Due to his presence there was echoing of ‘Allahu Akbar ‘in the entire universe & it will remain till the day of resurrection. In signification of the Quranic verses the blessings of Almighty Allah necessitated the name of the blessed Prophet (ﷺ) to be elevated. Therefore Almighty Allah attached obedience, affection & favor of the Holy Prophet (ﷺ) with His worship, affection & favor. & treated the disobedience, animosity & haltered with the messengers as disobedience, animosity & hatred to him. He attached the name of the holy messenger with His name & ordered for recalling the name of the Holy Prophet (ﷺ) with His name. Moreover Allah associated Himself in showering Durood & Salaam, including all His angels & directed all the believers to participate in it. So much so the Salat which is specialized for Allah ends with Durood e Shareef. In the first Takbir of funeral prayers ‘sana’ is uttered & after the second Takbir Durood e Sharif.
“Aye Allah, durood behj hamare sardaar Hazrat Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam par aur Aap ke Aal wa Ashaab par sabse Afzal Durood aur utni ta’daad mein jo Aap ke ta’daad ke muwafiq hai, Barkat wa Salaam nazil farma”.
2. The Holy Prophet (ﷺ) said “A person is a miser before whom my name is recited but he did not send Durood on me.”A person will be close to me who sends Durood on me excessively”. A person who sends Durood e Sharif on the holy messenger all the angels shower blessings on him. Now it is discretionary to decrease or increase. “A person who sends one time Durood on me Almighty Allah sends His blessings 10 times on him & writes 10 virtues in his accounts, & wipes out his 10 sins. At the time of crossing the narrow bridge (pul sirat) divines light will be given to him as it is obvious that who is from heavens will never be of Hell’s. “On the day of resurrection many tribes will come on the fountain of abundance & I will recognize them on the basis of excessive recital of Durood Shareef.”
3. Particularly on Friday & Monday & during the nights one should recite Durood excessively. There is practical experience that cures for all the diseases is hidden in Durood Shareef, bodily or spiritually. For the supplication to be accepted by Allah recitation of Durood Shareef before & after is necessary as at the time of ending Salat Durood Shareef is recited. The present brochure, containing the principles of Salat, is ended on Durood Shareef & its merits.
