Durood Ebrahim

dome picعن عبد الرحمن بن أبي ليلى قال لقيني كعب بن عجرة فقال ألا أهدي لك هدية سمعتها من النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقلت بلى فأهدها لي فقال سألنا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فقلنا يا رسول الله كيف الصلاة عليكم أهل البيت فإن الله قد علمنا كيف نسلم عليكم قال قولوا اللهم صل على محمد وعلى آل محمد كما صليت على إبراهيم وعلى آل إبراهيم إنك حميد مجيد اللهم بارك على محمد وعلى آل محمد كما باركت على إبراهيم وعلى آل إبراهيم إنك حميد مجيد (صحيح البخاري رقم 3370)

Abdur Rahmaan ibn Abi Layla (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports: “Hadhrat Ka’b bin Ujrah (Radhiallahu Anhu) once met me and asked, ‘Should I not gift you with something that I acquired from Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)?’ I replied, ‘Yes, indeed. Please do gift it to me.’ He said, “On one occasion we asked Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), ‘O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), what is the manner of reciting salaat upon you and your family, for indeed Allah Ta’ala has taught us (through you) how to recite salaam upon you. Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) replied: “Say, ‘O Allah, shower Your mercy upon Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and the family of Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), as You showered Your mercy upon Hadhrat Ebrahim (Alaihis Salaam) and the family of Hadhrat Ebrahim (Alaihis Salaam). Indeed You are praiseworthy and most glorious. O Allah, shower Your blessings upon Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and the family of Hadhrat Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), as You showered Your blessings upon Hadhrat Ebrahim (Alaihis Salaam) and the family of Hadhrat Ebrahim (Alaihis Salaam). Indeed You are praiseworthy and most glorious.”

Bounties Due to Reciting Abundant Durood

When Abul Abbaas Ahmad bin Mansoor (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) passed away, a person from Shiraaz saw him in a dream. He saw him standing in the mihraab of the Jaami Musjid of Shiraaz, dressed in beautiful clothes with a crown full of diamonds and pearls on his head. When Abul Abbaas was asked regarding these bounties he had been bestowed with, he replied, “Allah Ta’ala has pardoned me, forgiven my sins, afforded me great honour, and crowned me with this crown on account of the abundant durood I used to recite upon Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).” (Fazaail Durood)

Objective of Reciting Durood

Allamah Zarqaani (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) writes in “Sharhul Mawaahib” that the main aim and purpose for reciting Durood  should be to acquire the pleasure of Allah Ta’ala and obey His command (in the Quran regarding reciting durood upon Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)), as well as fulfilling the rights we owe to Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). (Fazaail Durood)
