Reciting Durood with Love and Enthusiasm

dome-pic2عن أبي هُرَيرَةَ رَضِيَ اللهُ عَنه أَنَّ رَسُولَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَليهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ مَن صَلَّى عَلَيَّ وَاحِدَةً صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيهِ عَشرًا وَمَن صَلَّى عَلَيَّ عَشرًا صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيهِ مِائَةً وَ مَن صَلَّى عَلَيَّ مِائَةً صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيهِ اَلْفًا وَ مَنْ زَادَ صَبَابَةً وَ شَوقًا كُنتُ لَه شَفِيعًا وَ شَهِيدًا يَومَ القِيَامَة (القول البديع ص 236: قال: اخرجه ابو موسى المديني بسند قال الشيخ مغلطاى لا بأس به)

Hadhrat Abu Hurayrah (Radhiallahu Anhu) reports that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said: “Whoever recites durood on me once, on him Allah Ta’ala sends ten blessings. Whosoever recites durood on me ten times, on him Allah Ta’ala sends one hundred blessings. Whosoever recites durood on me one hundred times, on him Allah Ta’ala sends thousand blessings. And whoever recites more with love and enthusiasm, I will intercede and testify for him on the day of Qiyaamah.

Taking Precaution in Writing Durood

Hazrat Abu Sulaimaan, Muhammad bin Husain (rahimahullah), says:

Amongst my neighbours, there was a man by the name of Fadhl who would engross himself in performing nafl salaah and observing nafl fasts.

He once mentioned to me, “I used to copy the Ahaadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), but was never in the habit of writing the Durood after the name of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then appeared in a dream and told me, ‘Why is it that you fail to recite Durood upon me whenever my name is spoken or written?’”

Fadhl then took great precaution in reciting Durood upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) whenever the name of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was mentioned. A few days later, he saw Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) again in a vision and Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) told him, “Continue reciting Durood upon me whenever my name is mentioned for verily your Durood reaches me.” (Al-Targheeb Wat-Tarheeb Liqiwaamis Sunnah 2/328, Al-Qowlul Badee’ Pg. 487)
