The Angel that Stands at the Blessed Grave of Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) to Convey the Durood of the Ummah

عن عمار بن ياسر رضي الله عنه قال قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إن الله وكل بقبري ملكا أعطاه الله أسماء الخلائق فلا يصلي علي أحد إلى يوم القيامة إلا أبلغني باسمه واسم أبيه هذا فلان بن فلان قد صلى عليك (رواه البزار كما في الترغيب والترهيب، الرقم: 2574، قال الهيثمي: رواه البزار وفيه ابن الحميري واسمه عمران يأتي الكلام عليه بعده … قال البخاري: لا يتابع على حديثه وقال صاحب الميزان: لا يعرف ونعيم بن ضمضم ضعفه بعضهم، وبقية رجاله رجال الصحيح كذا في مجمع الزوائد، الرقم: 17291)

Hazrat Ammaar bin Yaasir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Allah Ta’ala has appointed an angel to remain by my grave, such an angel whom Allah Ta’ala gave the knowledge of the names (and in some narrations, the ability of hearing the voices) of the creation. Thus, no person will send Durood upon me until the day of Qiyaamah, except that he conveys it to me with his name and the name of his father. (He will say,) ‘This is so-and-so the son of so-and-so, who has recited Durood upon you.’

The Scribe of Durood

Hazrat Shaikhul Hadith, Moulana Muhammad Zakariyya (rahimahullah) mentioned:

A reliable friend of mine informed me regarding a scribe of Lucknow. He would commence his daily work after writing durood on a sheet of paper which he had reserved for this very purpose.

At the time of his death, he was overcome with fear of the Hereafter saying, “What will become of me after I depart this world?” On saying this, a majzoob (saint constantly engaged in the remembrance of Allah Ta‘ala) appeared and said, “Why are you so worried? The sheet of paper (upon which you would write Durood) is with Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and is being adorned.” (Fazaail – e – Durood Pg. 153)

Receiving Seventy Rewards

Hazrat Abdullah bin Amr bin Aas (radhiyallahu ‘anhuma) reported, “Whoever sends salutations upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) once, Allah Ta‘ala and His angels will send seventy mercies and blessings upon him in return of his one Durood. Hence, whoever wishes to increase his Durood should increase it, and whoever wishes to decrease his Durood should decrease it (i.e. if he wants to earn great rewards, then he should increase his Durood).”
