Glad Tidings from Allah Ta‘ala for those who Recite Durood

عن عبد الرحمن بن عوف رضي الله عنه قال خرج رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فاتبعته حتى دخل نخلا فسجد فأطال السجود حتى خفت أو خشيت أن يكون الله قد توفاه أو قبضه قال فجئت أنظر فرفع رأسه فقال ما لك يا عبد الرحمن قال فذكرت ذلك له فقال إن جبريل عليه السلام قال لي ألا أبشرك إن الله عز وجل يقول لك من صلى عليك صليت عليه ومن سلم عليك سلمت عليه (مسند أحمد، الرقم: ١٦٦٢، وقال البيهقي في الخلافيات ٣/١٤٣ عن طريق لهذه الرواية بنحو هذه الألفاظ :قال أبو عبد الله – رحمه الله -: هذا حديث صحيح)

Hazrat Abdur Rahmaan bin Auf (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports: On one occasion, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) left his home and I followed him, until he entered a date orchard and fell into prostration. Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) made such a lengthy sajdah that I feared that Allah Ta‘ala had taken away his life. I thus went forward to see if anything had happened to Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) then raised his blessed head from sajdah and asked me what the matter was, to which I expressed to him my fear and worry (of him passing away in sajdah). Nabi (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “(The reason for me making such a lengthy sajdah was that) Hazrat Jibraeel (‘alaihis salaam) came to me and said, “Shall I not give you the glad tidings that Allah Ta‘ala says, ‘The one who recites Durood upon you, I send My mercy upon him, and the one who recites salaam upon you, I send peace and blessings upon him.

Always writing Durood upon the name of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam)

Abul Hasan Maymooni (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) says, “I once saw my ustaad Abu Ali (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) in a dream. I noticed that something was written on his fingers in gold or saffron. I asked him, ‘O Abu Ali, what is this?’ He replied, ‘Whenever I came across the name of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) while copying down Ahaadith, I used to write ‘Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam’. (This is the reward of that). (Fazaail Durood)
