Being Relieved of all Worries

عن أبي بن كعب رضي الله عنه قال قلت يا رسول الله إني أكثر الصلاة عليك فكم أجعل لك من صلاتي ؟ فقال ما شئت قال قلت الربع قال ما شئت فإن زدت فهو خير لك قلت النصف قال ما شئت فإن زدت فهو خير لك قال قلت فالثلثين قال ما شئت فإن زدت فهو خير لك قلت أجعل لك صلاتي كلها قال إذا تكفى همك ويغفر لك ذنبك (سنن الترمذي الرقم ٢٤٥٧: وقال هذا حديث حسن)

Hazrat Ubayy bin Ka’b (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports: I once asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), I wish to increase my Durood upon you, so from the time I allocate for dua, how much should I reserve for sending Durood upon you?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “As much as you desire.” I asked, “One quarter (i.e. one quarter of the time)?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “If you so wish, and if you increase it, it will be better for you.” I then asked, “One half?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “As much as you desire, and if you increase it, it will be better for you.” I then asked, “Two thirds?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “If you so wish, and if you increase it, it will be better for you.” I finally said, “O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), in that case, I resolve to devote all the time I have allocated for dua to convey Durood upon you.” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) mentioned, “Allah Ta‘ala will make it a means of relieving you from all your worries (and problems), and a means of atonement for your sins.”

Writing Durood in a Unique Form

Abu Ali Hasan bin Ali Attaar (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) says: “Abu Taahir (Rahmatullahi Alaihi) once gave me a few scripts of Ahaadith. I saw therein that whenever the name of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) was mentioned, salaat was written in these words:

صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ سَلَّمَ تَسْلِيمًا كَثِيرًا كَثِيرًا كَثِيرًا

I then asked Abu Taahir: “Why do you write durood upon Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) in this manner?” He replied: “In my youth, I used to write Ahaadith and I did not write salaat with the name of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). I then once saw Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) in a dream and greeted him, but Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) turned his face away from me. I then came to him from the other side and again greeted him, but once again he turned his face away from me. Once again for the third time I approached him from the front and enquired, “O Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), why do you turn your face away from me?” Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam0 replied: “It is because whenever you write my name in your book, you do not offer salaat upon me.” Since that time it has become my habit that whenever I write the name of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), I also write:

  صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيهِ وَ سَلَّمَ تَسْلِيمًا كَثِيرًا كَثِيرًا كَثِيرًا

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَ سَلِّم دَائِمًا أَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيبِكَ خَيرِ الخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ
