Hadhrat Hasan bin Ali (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said: “Recite durood upon me wherever you may be, as your durood is conveyed to me.
Reciting Durood before Sleeping
Muhammad bin Saeed bin Mutrif (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) was an extremely pious person. He relates: “I made it an obligation upon myself to recite a fixed number of Durood upon Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) when I lie down at night before going to sleep. One evening I slept on the upper storey of my house, after completing my set amount of Durood, I fell off to sleep and saw Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) in a dream. He entered my home through the door of the upper storey and with his blessed presence the entire room became illuminated. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) approached me and said: “Stretch forward those lips with which you recited so much durood upon me, so that I may kiss them.” In modesty I could not offer my lips to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and therefore I turned my face. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) then kissed me on my cheek. I was greatly excited and immediately woke up in this excitement. My wife who lay near me also woke up. We found the whole room filled with the most fragrant smell of musk. For eight days thereafter this fragrant smell of musk spread forth from my cheeks.”
