عَن أنَسِ بنِ مَالِكٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنهُ قَاَلَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ سَلَّمَ مَنْ صَلَّى عَلَيَّ صَلَاةً وَاحِدَةً صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيهِ عَشرَ صَلَوَاتٍ وَحُطَّت عَنهُ عَشرُ خَطِيئَاتٍ وَ رُفِعَت لَهُ عَشرُ دَرَجَاتٍ (سنن النسائى)
Hadhrat Anas (Radhiallahu Anhu)reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whoever recites durood upon me once, Allah Ta’ala will send ten mercies upon him, ten sins of his will be forgiven and his rank in Paradise will be raised by ten stages.
Abundant Durood Brings the Forgiveness of Allah Ta’ala
Shaikh Ibnu Hajar Makki (rahimahullah) reports that a saintly person was once seen in a dream after his demise. He was questioned regarding his condition in the Hereafter. The saintly person replied, “Allah Ta’ala had mercy upon me, pardoned my sins and admitted me into Paradise.” When asked the reason for this he replied, “The angels were commanded to count my sins and the number of Durood I had recited upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). When it was seen that the number of my Durood exceeded the number of my sins, Allah Ta’ala addressed the angels and said, ‘This is sufficient (for his forgiveness). Let no further reckoning take place. Usher him into Paradise.’” (Al-Durrul Mandhood pg. 183)
Abundant Durood will be a Noor (Light) on the day of Qiyaamah
Allamah Sakhaawi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) reports a hadith wherein ibn Umar (Radhiallahu Anhuma) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said, “Adorn your gatherings with the recitation of abundant durood upon me, because on the day of Qiyaamah the durood shall be a noor (a means of light) for you.
From ‘Qootul Quloob’ Allamah Sakhaawi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) quotes that ‘abundant durood’ mentioned in the above hadith, refers to reciting durood at least three hundred times daily. Hadhrat Moulana Gangohi (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) also instructed his followers to recite durood upon Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) three hundred times daily. (Fazaail Durood)
