The Durood of the Ummah reaching Hazrat Rasulullah (Sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم من صلى علي عند قبري سمعته ومن صلى علي من بعيد أعلمته (أخرجه أبو الشيخ في الثواب له من طريق أبي معاوية عن الأعمش عن أبي صالح عنه ومن طريقه الديلمي وقال ابن القيم إنه غريب قلت: وسنده جيد كما أفاده شيخنا كذا في القول البديع صـ ٣٢٥)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “When you recite Durood at my grave, then I hear your Durood, and when you recite Durood from afar, then your Durood is conveyed to me (via the angels).”

Saved from Wild Animals through Reciting Durood

It has been reported regarding Shaikh Abul Hasan Shaazili (rahimahullah) that on one occasion, he was in the wilderness when wild animals began to approach him. Fearing that these animals would harm him, he immediately resorted to reciting Durood and Salaat upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).

The reason for him doing this is that it is reported in the authentic Ahaadith that when a person sends one Salaat upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), Allah Ta‘ala sends ten Salaat (i.e. mercies) upon him, and the one upon whom Allah Ta‘ala showers His mercy, Allah Ta‘ala suffices him for all the worries and difficulties that he faces. Hence, through reciting Durood upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), Shaikh Shaazili (rahimahullah) was saved from the wild animals. (Al-Qowlul Badee’ Pg. 265)
