Durood

 

What is Darud Sharif

Durood or Darood Sahreef (Arabic: salawāt) (Persian: درود) (Urdu: صلوت و سلام) is an invocation which Muslims make by saying specific phrases to compliment the Islamic prophet Muhammad. The Islamic view is to say durood whenever a Muslim reads, speaks or hears the name of the beloved Prophet Muhammad SAWW. Divine blessings on Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim) is the highest and the most precious act in our Deen. This "Divine Blessings" is called Durood Shareef.

When Almighty Allah sends Durood and Salaams upon Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim), He is actually blessing him. When the Malaa'ikah and the Muslims send Durood and Salaams to Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim), they are actually showing Almighty Allah their respect for the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim). Muslims hope that, through the blessings of the Durood and Salaams, Almighty Allah will forgive them of their sins and increase their status in this world and in the Aakirah. The Malaa'ikah hope that Almighty Allah will increase their status.

 

RECITING DUROOD SHARIF FOR THE SUPREME CREATION OF ALLAH TA åLLAH

Quran Pak 33:56 instructs us to read Durood Sharif

We are informed in Quran Pak 33:56 that “Allah sends His Salat (Blessings & Honours) on the Prophet Muhammad) & also His Angels (ask Allah to bless and forgive him) O you who believe! Send your Salat (blessings) on him (Muhammad) and you should greet him with the Islamic way of greeting (Assalam Aleikum).”

 In other words, we are informed in this ayat (verse) of Al-Quran to read Durood Sharif and to send Salam on our Holy Prophet Muhammad Mustafa (Peace and blessings of Allah Almighty be upon him).

Ahadiths about Durood shaif

The Holy ProphetI SAWW as saying that "One sent by my Sustainer came to me and told me that 'Whoever from your ummah sends darud on you once ten good deeds are recorded on his behalf, his ten (minor) sins are pardoned and he is elevated by ten stages" (Sunan Nisai and Musnad Ahmed, AI-targhib li al Mundhari,P.157volume3)

Hazrat Anas has said that the eternally blessed Prophet said that "When my name is mentioned before anyone it is incumbent upon him to, send darud on me, and whosoever sends darud once, Allah sends His Mercy on him ten times (ibid.)

Hazrat Muhammad (Sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) asked the Sahaba. "Who is a stingy and miserly person. The Sahaba responded: " O Messenger Of Allah (sallallahu aliyhi Wassallam) A stingy person is he who has loads of wealth but does not spend it." The Prophet of Allah (Sallallahu alaihi wassallam) responded "No! a Stingy and Miserly person is he in whose presence my name is mentioned and he does not recite Durood."

Your prayers are accomplished by reciting DaroodShareef

The Durood Sharif in Namaz  runs as follows:

«قُولُوا: اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ، كَمَا صَلَّيْتَ عَلَى آلِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ ، إِنَّكَ حَمِيدٌ مَجِيدٌ، اللَّهُمَّ بَارِكْ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ، كَمَا بَارَكْتَ عَلَى آلِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، إِنَّكَ حَمِيدٌ مَجِيد»

O God, bless Mohammad and his posterity (or followers) as Thou hast blest Abraham and his posterity (or followers); Verily, Thou art the Praiseworthy, the Majestic.

«قُولُوا: اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ، كَمَا صَلَّيْتَ عَلَى آلِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ ، إِنَّكَ حَمِيدٌ مَجِيدٌ، اللَّهُمَّ بَارِكْ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ، كَمَا بَارَكْتَ عَلَى آلِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، إِنَّكَ حَمِيدٌ مَجِيد»

 

O God, magnify Mohammad and his posterity (or followers) as Thou hast magnified Abraham and his posterity (or followers); Verily, Thou art the Praiseworthy), the Majestic.

Though the Durood Sharif we invoke the favours and blessings of the Lord on the Prophet and his family and all those who bear a special association with him. It is, after all, through the agency of the Prophet that the Divine boon of Islam and Namaz has reached us. God has, therefore, charged us with the duty of praying for him, his family and his descendants at the end of each Namaz as an expression of our gratitude to him.

Darood Sharif necessary in dua

It is recommended to conclude supplications with Salah upon the Prophet .

At-Tirmidhi recorded that `Umar bin Al-Khattab said: "A supplication remains suspended between heaven and earth and does not ascend any further until you send Salah upon your Prophet.'' This was also narrated by Mu`adh bin Al-Harith from Abu Qurrah from Sa`id bin Al-Musayyib from `Umar, as a saying of the Prophet . It was also recorded by Razin bin Mu`awiyah in his book, where he also attributed it to the Prophet reporting that he said:

 

«الدُّعَاءُ مَوْقُوفٌ بَيْنَ السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ، لَا يَصْعَدُ حَتَّى يُصَلَّى عَلَيَّ، فَلَا تَجْعَلُونِي كَغُمْرِ الرَّاكِبِ، صَلُّوا عَلَيَّ، أَوَّلَ الدُّعَاءِ وَآخِرَهُ وَأَوْسَطَه»

(A supplication remains suspended between heaven and earth and does not ascend any further until a person sends Salah on me. Do not treat me like a spare water container, send Salah upon me at the beginning of your supplication, at the end and in the middle.)

70 Billion Angels sent for Durood Sharif

In the book ‘Aab-e-Kauthar’, the hadith states: it is reported by Hazrat Ka’ab (May Allah Almighty be pleased with him) that 70,000 angels descend on the Holy Prophet Muhammad Mustafa’s (Peace and blessings of Allah Almighty be upon him) mosque daily, surround it and touch it with their heavenly wings, and continue reciting Durood Sharif and leave for the heavens in the evening. They are replaced by another 70,000 angels who stay till dawn to be replaced by another 70,000 angels in the morning, and each angel cannot return after its initial visit. This process will keep continuing until the Day of Judgement. A rough calculation reveals that to date almost 70 BILLION ANGELS have been sent by Allah Almighty to the Holy Prophet Muhammad Mustapha’s (Peace and blessings of Allah Almighty be upon him) mosque to read Durood Sharif upon him.

Why should “WE” recite Darood Sharif ?

Muslims are a very fortunate people. Allah Ta'ala chose for them the name of Islam as a religion, declared to be comprehensive and final for mankind. The person chose to deliver this message in this specific form and extra-ordinary style of love and hope was the most beloved of Allah Ta'ala and became the Light of Divinity to be shed upon the entire universe. This Light devastated all the domains of darkness and depression. By reciting Durood Shareef (Salawat) we invite Light and drive away all darkness from our inner soul. Our mind becomes soft and love saturated. If there is softness in everything, it tends beauty to it. People become ugly owing to lack of this essential beauty of the inner part of the mind. This ugliness cannot be glossed over by any amount of cosmetics. It is the Durood Shareef on the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim) which works wonders.

In the same manner, the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim) taught us Durood Shareef to attain salvation, perfect peace and maximum gain in this world as well as the next. The soul is the soil where the faith of Allah is to be implanted firmly and faithfully which requires continuous recitation of Durood Shareef to thrive and flourish.

We have been told by Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim) that Durood Shareef is itself Light and when Light enters the soul every aspiration is achieved and every goal is won. Nothing remains thereafter to worry about.

Human spirit today is depressed everywhere and mankind has come to the edge of destruction, decay and devastation. Everyone is surrounded by untold miseries and tragedies of a very great magnitude. Troubles and tortures, pain, poverty, hunger, ill-health, frustrations and accidents have broken the back of a human being. All this can evaporate with the recitation of Durood Shareef on the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim) who has clearly proclaimed that Durood Shareef is the panacea of all ills and that if any one comes across a calamity he should recite Durood Shareef in the maximum number. Allah Ta'ala has promised that if anyone recites Durood only once, He showers ten blessings on the reciter immediately.

Durood Sharif a Most Valuable Asset

If we have stock, which is an asset to our business, we can sell it to make a PROFIT. Without stock there is no sale and there is no profi t. Durood Sharif is an asset and we should regard it as our stock which can benefit us in many ways i.e. DUROOD SHARIF CAN PROFIT US IN THE AFTERLIFE WITH A PLACE IN AL-JANNAH.

We are All Millionaires

We don’t realise it but we are all millionaires. A small sacrifi ce of our valuable time can lead to  remarkable results in the long-run. Spending just 5 MINUTES A DAY (READING 100+ DUROOD SHARIF ) CAN TURN INTO A MILLION DUROODS READ, DURING A LIFETIME OF 25-30 YEARS. This is not impossible for any member of the UMMAH of Holy Prophet  Muhammad Mustafa (Peace and blesinngs of Allah Almighty be upon him). In the book ‘Aab-e-Kauthar’, the Hadith states:

He who recites it (Durood Sharif) 10 times a day is granted 100 blessings and he who recites it 100 times a day, Allah Tallah inscribes on his forehead – that he has immunity from hypocrisy and hell, and he will be counted among the martyrs on the Day of Judgement.

During the five regular prayers we read Durood Ibrahim, in every last rakat, this totals to 17 times for all 5 prayers .Therefore we can see the importance of reading Durood Sharif on a voluntary basis daily; to complete the amount required necessary to achieve this high status granted to the UMMAH.

The highest blessings which Islam has conferred on man is the concept of Tauheed or Unity of Allah in its purest form. This has been furnished to mankind through Hazrat Muhammad  SAWW . It is a cardinal duty of every Muslim man and woman, young and old to entertain the highest respect, regard, love and esteem for the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim) and his family. It should be clear that obedience to Hazrat Muhammad (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim) is always to be charged with intense love and highest regard for him, for it is through love and esteem that truth can be comprehended and communion with the Creator can be vouch-safed. In fact, love is the motive force, reverence dissolves and implicit obedience to the Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim) which is the natural outcome. It is therefore incumbent on those who love him, to pray to Allah Ta'ala and His Angels in wishing for him peace according to the Divine Command. This will reshape the life which is otherwise infested with turmoil. The reciter will get countless and matchless benefits in both the Worlds and can claim to be the lover of Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim).

As Muslims we should recite Durood Shareef in the Arabic language. Islam seeks to create a unified outlook and it is in the Arabic language alone which welds all Muslims into one great brotherhood. Besides, Arabic is the language of Heaven, it is the language of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim), it is the language of the Angels and it is the language of Hazrat Abu-Bakr, Hazrat Umar, Hazrat Uthman and Hazrat Ali (radi Allahu anhuma).

The daily recitation of Durood Shareef has a tremendous effect on the human head, heart, mind and person. It purifies thoughts and intensifies actions. It makes passages for perfect peace and personal satisfaction.
