Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whomsoever recites durood on me once, on him Allah Ta’ala sends ten blessings.
The Author of Dalaailul Khairaat
It is mentioned regarding the author of Dalaailul Khairaat that he once set out on a journey. During the journey he required water to perform wudhu. Subsequently he came across a well but due to not having a bucket and rope he could not draw out the water from the well. Out of concern for his salaah, he became extremely worried. While in this state, a young girl (who was not yet baaligh) saw him and came to him. She asked him what was the matter and he explained to her the problem. She immediately spat into the well whereupon the water rose to the top of the well by itself. Witnessing this miracle performed by the young girl, he was overcome by surprise and thus asked the girl, “How did you perform this miracle?” The girl replied, “This was through the blessings of the Durood which I have recited upon Hadhrat Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).” It was this miracle that motivated him to write the book Dalaailul Khairaat. (Fazaail-e-Durood).
Allamah Zardaq (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) reports that upon the demise of the author of Dalaailul Khairaat, the fragrant smell of musk and amber used to spread forth from the grave. This was due to the blessings of the durood. (Fazaail-e-Durood)
Remaining in the Company of Those who Recite Durood
Rasheed Al-Ataar (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) mentions: “There was a pious sheikh living with us in Egypt by the name of Abu Saeed Al-Khayyaath. He kept to himself and was hardly seen associating with the people or attending any gatherings. After some while, he began frequenting the gathering of ibn Rasheeq (Rahmatullahi Alaihi). The people were surprised and enquired from him the reason for him attending the gathering of ibn Rasheeq (Rahmatullahi Alaihi). The sheikh replied, “I had seen Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) in the dream and he advised me to frequent the gathering of ibn Rasheeq (Rahmatullahi Alaihi). Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “Attend the gathering of ibn Rasheeq (Rahmatullahi Alaihi), for indeed he recites abundant durood upon me (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).” (Al-Qawlul Badee’)
