Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Do not make your homes into graveyards (i.e. Recite Qur’an and perform salaah in your home so that the home does not be a place void of Aa’maal as is the case of the graveyard), and do not make my grave a place of festivity, and recite durood upon me, for certainly your durood reaches me (via the angels) from wherever you may be.
A Benefit of Reciting Abundant Durood
In “Nuzhatul Majaalis”, the following incident is related: “Once a man went to visit a seriously ill person at the time when he was on the throes of death. He asked the sick man, “How do you find the bitter pangs of death at this moment of departure?” He replied: “I do not feel any discomfort at all. I heard the Ulama mention that whoever recites abundant durood upon Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) will find himself safe from the discomfort of death at the moment of passing away.” (Fazaail Durood)
