Gracious is the Lord! Our Durood is communicated to the Prophet (Peace be upon him) by the angels and through it we get a chance of being mentioned in his presence. What greater honor could there by for us, really?

The Prophet (Peace be upon him) says: “Closest to me on the Day of Requital will be he who sends blessings on me oftener.”

And another one:

“That man is a big miser in whose presence my name is taken and he does not offer the Durood.”

And another one:

“May he be disgraced in whose presence my name is taken and he fails to offer the Durood.” In sum, to send blessings on the Prophet (Peace be upon him) is a foremost duty we owe to him a source of stupendous virtue and blessedness and the fountainhead of prodigious blessings in this world and the next.

Words of Durood

Once the companions asked the Prophet (Peace be upon him), “How are we to offer Durood and salutation.”

The Prophet (Peace be upon him) advised them about Durood-I-Ibrahimi which is recited in the Namaz. We have already reproduced it in Lesson II.

Very much similar to Durood-I-Ibrahimi, but a little shorter, is another Durood, which was also taught by the Prophet (Peace be upon him). It reads:

“Allahumma Salli ala muhamadinin nabil ummi wazwajihi ummahatihil mo’minina wazurriyatihi wa’halibaithi kama salaita ala aali ibrahima innka hameedum majeed.”

“O Allah! Magnify Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him), the Unlettered, his wives, the mothers of the faithful, his posterity (followers), and his family as Thou hast magnified the family of Ibrahim. Verily, Thou art the Praiseworthy, the Majestic.”

Whenever we take the name of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) or talk about him or hear about him from anyone we should at once send blessings on him. On such occasions it is enough to say only Sallahu-alai-hi-Wasallam or Alaihis salatus wasallam.

Daily Routine

Some determined persons with a natural flair and fondness for Durood-e-Sharif make it a regular habit to recite it thousands of times daily. But if weak-willed men like ourselves can manage to recite it a hundred times morning and evening with proper devotion and reverence they will profit so much by it and there will be such exquisite favor of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) on him that it is not possible even to imagine them in this world.

The following Durood Sharif is suggested to those who may want to know a brief one:

“Allahumma Salli ala muhamadinin nabil ummi walihi”

O Allah! Magnify Mohammad (Peace be upon him), the Unlettered Prophet (Peace be upon him), and his family.
