The Muhadditheen never compromised in the writing of durood. At times, one-third of a page in the kitaab is taken up by the durood. Moreover, in a time when writing was not as easy as it is nowadays.
Read and write the durood as a manner of expressing our gratitude to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Secondly, hold firmly to the sunnat and thirdly, pass it on to others. Think of the sunnats of the different occasions, sunnats of dealing with children, parents, etc. and endeavour to inculcate them.
Moulana Gangohi (rahmatullahi ‘alaih) advised that one should recite a minimum of 300 durood daily. Our elders emphasised the excessive recitation of durood on account of their extreme love for Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). The durood does not have to be a lengthy durood, even a short durood is sufficient. However, recite with total love and concentration.
