Earn the Company of the Martyrs on the Day of Qiyaamah

dome picعَن أنَسِ بنِ مَالِكٍ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنهُ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ سَلَّمَ مَن صَلَّى عَلَيَّ صَلاَةً وَاحِدَةً صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيهِ عَشرًا وَمَنْ صَلَّى عَلَيَّ عَشرًا صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيهِ مِائَةً وَمَن صَلَّى عَلَيَّ مِائَةً كَتَبَ اللهُ بَينَ عَينَيهِ بَرَاءَةٌ مِنَ النِّفَاقِ وَبَرَاءَةٌ مِنَ النَّارِ وَأَسْكَنَهُ اللهُ يَومَ القِيَامَةِ مَعَ الشُّهَدَاءِ (المعجم الأوسط للطبراني رقم 7235)

Hadhrat Anas (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whoever recites durood upon me once, Allah Ta’ala will bestow him with ten mercies. Whoever recites durood upon me ten times, Allah Ta’ala will bestow him with one hundred mercies. Whoever recites durood upon me one hundred times, Allah Ta’ala will write (i.e. a divine stamp will be placed) on his forehead:

بَرَاءَةٌ مِنَ النِّفَاقِ وَبَرَاءَةٌ مِنَ النَّارِ

Freedom from hypocrisy and freedom from the fire (of Jahannum)

And Allah Ta’ala will bless him with the company of the martyrs on the day of Qiyaamah

Reciting a Fixed Amount of Durood Before Retiring to Sleep

Shaikh ibn Hajar Makki (Rahmatullahi alaihi) relates an incident about a saintly person who committed himself to reciting a fixed number of durood upon Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) before retiring to bed. One night he had seen Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) in a dream. Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) entered his home and the entire home became illuminated with the noor of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said to me, “Bring forth towards me that mouth that recites durood upon me and allow me to kiss it.” Out of shyness, he offered his cheek and Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) kissed it. Upon awakening, he found that his entire home fragrant with the smell of musk. (Fazaail Durood)

Reward for Writing ‘Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam’

Hasan ibn Muhammad (rahmatullahi alaihi) says:

I once saw Imaam Ahmad ibn Hambal (rahmatullahi alaihi) in a dream. He said to me, ‘If only you could witness with your eyes the great rewards and blessings that shines before us in store for those who write durood upon Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) in their books.'” (Ad-Durrul-Mandood pg. 256, Al-Qawlul Badee’ pg. 486)

Note: When writing the name of Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam), then one should write the complete صلى الله عليه وسلم in Arabic  or ‘sallallahu alaihi wasallam’ in English. One should not suffice upon the abbreviations such as ‘SAW’ or PBUH etc. as this is not in keeping with the demands of respect that should be shown to Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam).
