O Allah, All praise be to You as You are worthy. Bestow blessings upon Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) according to Your majesty, and You deal with us according to Your exalted position, for verily You alone are worthy of being feared and You are the only one who can forgive our sins.
Allamah ibn Mushtahir (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) says: “Whosoever desires to praise Allah Ta’ala in such a manner that is more virtuous than any other praise recited by any of the creation, the former as well as the latter, such a praise that is more virtuous than the praises sung by the angels in the heavens and those dwelling on earth, and whosoever desires to recite such a durood upon Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) which has more virtue than any other durood recited by anyone else, then he should recite the above-mentioned duaa. (Fazaail Durood)
The Name of Hazrat Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in the Taurah
Allaamah Sakhaawi (rahimahullah) relates:
There was once an evil person from amongst the Bani Israa’eel. When he passed away, the people did not afford him any respect and merely left his body on the ground. Allah Ta’ala then revealed to Moosa (‘alaihis salaam), “O Moosa, wash him and perform his janaazah, for I have forgiven his sins and pardoned him.”
Moosa (‘alaihis salaam) asked, “O Allah Ta’ala, what is the reason for this?” Allah Ta’ala replied, “Once, his sight fell on the name of Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in the Taurah and he recited Durood upon Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). On account of this action, I have forgiven him.” (Al-Qowlul Badee’ Pg. 260)
