Receive the Intercession of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)

Madina Munawwarahعَن رُوَيفِع بْنِ ثَابِت الأنصَارِي رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنهُ أًنَّ رَسُولَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ مَنْ صَلَّى عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَقَالَ اَلَّلهُمَّ أَنْزِلْهُ المقعَدَ المقَرَّبَ عِنْدَكَ يَومَ القِيَامَة وَجَبَتْ لَهُ شَفَاعَتِي (مسند أحمد)

Hadhrat Ruwayfi’ bin Thaabit Al-Ansaari (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whosoever recites the following durood will be blessed with my intercession on the day of Qiyaamah:

اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَ أَنْزِلْهُ المقْعَدَ المقَرَّبَ عِنْدَكَ يَومَ القِيَامَة 

O Allah, shower your choicest durood (blessings) on Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and grant him the lofty position of maqaam-e-mahmood on the day of Qiyaamah


The Special Durood of Imaam Shaafi’ee (Rahmatullahi Alaihi)

In “Rowdhatul Ahbaab”, Imaam Isma’eel ibn Ebraheem Muzni (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) (one of Imaam Shaafi’ee (Rahmatullahi Alaihi)’s famous students) reports, “I once saw Imaam Shaafi’ee (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) in a dream after his death and asked him, ‘How did Allah Ta’ala treat you?’ Imaam Shaafi’ee (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) replied, ‘Allah Ta’ala has pardoned me and commanded that I be escorted into Paradise with honour and respect. I have acquired all this through the blessings of one particular durood which I used to recite upon Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).’ I enquired, ‘Which durood is that?’ Imaam Shaafi’ee (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) replied:

اللّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ كُلَّمَا ذَكَرَهُ الذَّاكِرُونَ وَ كُلَّمَا غَفَلَ عَن ذِكْرِهِ الْغَافِلُونَ

O Allah Ta’ala! Bestow mercy upon Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) equivalent to the number of times that all those remember him, and bestow mercy upon Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) equivalent to the number of times that all those forget to remember him. (Fazaail Durood)


An Ansari Woman's Anxiety about Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)

In the battle of Uhud, the Muslims suffered heavy losses and quite a large number of them were killed. When the news of their heavy casualties reached Madinah Munawwarah, the women came out of their homes eager to know the details of the war.

On seeing the large crowd of people gathered at a certain place, a woman of the Ansar anxiously inquired: “How is Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)?” When told that her father was killed in the battle, she uttered ‘Inna Lillahi Wainna ilaihi raaji’oon’ and impatiently repeated the same question about Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). This time she was told that her husband was no more, her brother was dead and that her son too was slain. With ever-growing anxiety, she repeated the same question about the welfare of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). She was told that he was safe and sound, but she would not rest contented, and insisted on seeing him herself. When at last she had satisfied her eyes with his sight, she said:

كُلُّ مُصِيبَةٍ بَعْدَكَ جَلَلٌ

"O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), with the blessing of seeing you every affliction is eased and every worry is removed." (Hayatus Sahaabah, Fazaail Aa'maal)

يا رب صل و سلم دائما أبدا على حبيبك خير الخلق كلهم
