“O, Allah! Every moment and in every breath, bestow complete and the best blessings and perfect peace which is endless on Muhammad, our master, and on his descendants and his Companions, and may, for His Sake, all our troubles and tortures be over, calamities ended, and all our needs fulfilled, all our cherished desires attained, and good ends vouch-saved, and clouds are laden with water through the glorious countenance of Prophet.

Actually, this Durood Shareef is in the Holy Quran; but then it was kept a secret. Hadrat Abu-Bakr Siddique (radi Allahu anhu), the first Caliph of Islam, used to recite it daily without fail. Some narrations say that it is because of this Durood that he was awarded the title of “Siddique” which means “Testifier to the Truth”.

Hadrat Abul Muqqarab (radi Allahu anhu) says that a man’s total sins will be washed away if he recites Durood-e-Fath for forty days continuously.

Hadrat Shaikh Muhammad Bakari (radi Allahu anhu) says that the recitation of Durood-e-Fath once a day relieves the reciter from the Fire of Hell.

Hadrat Syed Ahmed Hillam (radi Allahu anhu) says that Durood-e- Fath was the most favourite routine of Hadrat Ghaus-e-Azam, Sheikh Abdul Qaadir Jilani (radi Allahu anhu) of Baghdad Shareef.

The great Saints also say that Durood-e-Fath is actual and real light.

Hadrat Sheikh Yusuf Bin Ismail (radi Allahu anhu) says that this Durood Shareef is the greatest mystery of Allah. It brings 100% success and happiness to the reciter.

Imam Shafi’i (radi Allahu anhu) told him that because of the continuous recitation of the above Durood Shareef, Allah Ta’ala gave him the most exalted position of the highest grade in Heaven and forgave him. Hadrat Imam Muzni (radi Allahu anhu) has also narrated exactly the same story.

“O, Allah! Shower blessings on Muhammad, our Master, and his Family such blessings by means of which Thou may relieve us of all anxieties and calamities. Thou may satisfy all our needs. Thou may clean us of all evils and thanks for which Thou may grant us high position and high rank and status in Thy presence, and Thou may lead us to the utmost limit of our aspirations and capacity in whatever is best in this world as well as in the world Hereafter, as Thou has the full Power over everything”.

This Durood Shareef is always a cure for all calamities in the world of worldly affairs. It was taught by Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) himself. To recite this Durood Shareef 70 times during days of calamity, turmoil and trouble is a must. It works wonders.

The great Scholar, Saint, Jurist, and author, Imam ibn-Faikihani (radi Allahu anhu) says that there was once a pious man called Sheikh Moosa Zareer (radi Allahu anhu). He embarked on a voyage by ship. Due to a heavy storm, the ship started sinking. All the passengers on board started crying and clamouring, but Sheikh Moosa Zareer (radi Allahu anhu) went to sleep. He saw the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) in his dream and the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) directed him and the passengers to recite Durood-e-Tunajjina 1 000 times. Sheikh Moosa Zareer (radi Allahu anhu) got up and started the recitation. As soon as he finished 300 Durood Shareefs, the storm subsided and the ship was saved. The other ship on the high seas sank, but this ship reached its destination safely and soundly. This miracle was a sufficient eye-opener for the members of the ship. It was by the Grace of Allah Ta’ala and Durood-e-Tunajjina that all were saved.

All the Saints have unanimously given a verdict that Durood-e-Tunajjina is the best cure of all ills and all calamities of this world.

“O Allah! Shower Thy blessings and beneficence on Muhammad, Thy creature and Thy Messenger, and shower beneficence on all men of faith and women of faith, and Muslim men and Muslim women”.

This Durood Shareef is a special one. Hadrat Abu Saeed Khudri (radi Allahu anhu), a close companion of the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam), says that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: “Whoever does not possess wealth to give in charity, should recite this Durood in his Du’a. It will become a source of (spiritual) cleanliness for him”.Hadrat Abu Huraira (radi Allahu anhu) says that the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said: “Allah has said, ‘If you spend I shall spend on you’”. This means that if you spend your money on others – the poor, sick, needy and the orphan – Allah will give you in abundance. But, what if a man has nothing to give in charity? By reading Durood-e-Sadaqah, it will suffice.

This is a very important Durood Shareef which brings forth immediate success and satisfaction to the heart and the mind.

Hadrat Zarar bin Auzar (radi Allahu anhu), another companion of the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) says that he used to recite this Durood Shareef and fight with the non-believers. In every battle, he saw that success kissed his feet, and he never lost any battle on any day.

May Thy grace and peace rest upon Hazrat Muhammad, our Master, and our patron, the Wearer of Holy Cap, the one who ascended the Heavens, the rider of the Heavenly Steed and holder of the Flag of Divine Unity, the remover of calamity, epidemic, famine, disease, and pain. His name is written in Divine edict, exalted authorized for intercession, and inscribed in the Tablet and Pen.

“He is the leader of Arabs and non-Arabs. His body is the holiest, pure, fragrant, fully perfected in purity and luminous in the sanctuary of Kaaba and its precincts. He is the sun of the glorious morning light, and the (full beautiful) moon of the dark night, the chief occupant of the highest seat in Heaven, light of guidance, refuge for the creatures, and lamp in the darkness. Of excellent manner, is the intercessor for mankind, one gifted with generosity and magnanimity. Allah is his protector and Angel Jibrael attends to him frequently. The Heavenly Steed is his conveyance and the glorious ascension to Heavens (to meet his Allah) is his last station in his march onwards, his object is to come in the closest company of his Allah, and this object has successfully achieved the point of destination reached and the goal covered.

“He is the most prominent amongst all the apostles, and the last in the line of the Prophets (no Prophet will come after him. Isa will come in the capacity of his ambassador), the intercessor of Sinners, Mercy indeed for all the domains of existence, comfort for the lovers and the desired object for the yearning souls, the sun of the gnostics, and the shining lamp for those who travel on the road leading to Allah, the lover of the poor and needy, the leader of the Jinns and all mankind, Prophet of the twin sacred centers (Makkah and Madinah), leader of the two exalted positions (Qiblas, the Kaaba of Mecca and of Jerusalem), our Supporter in both the worlds, honored with Kaaba Kausaine, the beloved of the two east and the west, the grandfather of Hazrat Hassan and Hussain, our Patron and the patron of the Jinns and mankind, father of Hazrat Qassim (his son) Muhammad, son of Abdullah, who is the light of Allah’s Light. Therefore, O lovers of light and beauty of Hazrat Muhammad, invoke blessings on him and salute him with worthy salutations.”

If anyone wants to see Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) in his dream, then he should recite Durood-e-Taaj on eleven Friday nights continuously and that too on the advancing stages of the moon. The pre-requisites of the Revision of the Durood are as below:-
a. Make Wudhu.
b. Put on clean scentful clothes.
c. Face the Qibla and recite Durood for 170 times, then go to bed.
For the sanctity of the soul, one should recite the Durood seven times after Salaatul Fajr, three times after Salaatul Asr, and Esha, each day.

And for overcoming the cruel Rulers and enemies, and to come out of the misery of poverty, one should recite Durood for 40 days continuously, 41 times each day. One who wishes to enhance the avenues of the economy in abundance, or must make it a routine to revise the Durood seven times each day after Salatul Fajr.

Besides all this, Durood-e-Taaj is a panacea for all the present-day ills and will enable the reciter to pass on a happy and peaceful life forever.

“O, Allah! Send blessings upon our leader Muhammad as long as there is the interchange of night and day, as long as the morning and the evening follow one behind the other, as long as the night and day repeat themselves jointly, and as long as the two bright stars (of Ursa Minor) remain fixed in their places, send from us our gift and peace on his soul and the souls of his family members and send peace and blessings on him abundantly”.

By reciting this Durood Shareef once, one gets the Sawaab as reciting 10 000 Durood Shareef. It will take you only 30 seconds to read this Durood Shareef, and you will get the Sawaab for 10 000 Durood Shareefs. By reciting one Tasbeeh of this Durood Shareef 100 X 10 000 = 1 million Duroods! In Ramadaan X 10 = 10 million Duroods!

 

Allah’s Name (we) begin with, The Compassionate Most Merciful As Salaatu Was Salaamu Alaika Ya Rasool’Allah The Command of the Holy Qur’an, Sending Durood Shareef upon our Nabi is one of the most blessed and virtuous practices.

This blessed practice is evident and proven in the Holy Qur’an. Almighty Allah says in the Glorious Qur’an:

innallah-wnnallah WaMalaikatahu Yushalluna Alan Nabi
innallah-wnnallah WaMalaikatahu Yushalluna Alan Nabi

‘Verily Allah and His Angels send Durood upon The Proclaimer of the Unseen’ (Nabi). O, Believers! Send Durood upon him and Salaams in abundance.’ [Surah 33 Verse 56]

Durood Sharif Virtues in the Hadith Shareef

Hazrat Abu Hurairah ؓ◌ reported that Rasoolullah said, ‘Almighty Allah will send down blessings ten times upon a person who sends Durood upon me once.’ [Muslim]

Hazrat Ali ؓ◌ states that ‘a tree has been created in Jannah (Paradise), the fruits of which are larger than an apple and smaller than a pomegranate. It is softer than butter, sweeter than honey, and more fragrant than musk.

Its branches are made of pearls, its trunk is made of gold, and its leaves are made of jasper. With the exception of those who sent Durood in abundance upon Nabi Kareem, none other will be allowed to eat from it.’

Hazrat Abu Dardah ؓ◌ reported that the Beloved Rasool said, ‘Allah Almighty will bless a person who recites ten Durood Shareef in the morning and ten Durood Shareef in the evening, with my intercession.’
[Tabrani]

Subhaan’Allah! How long does it take a person to sincerely recite ten times Durood Shareef upon Nabi Kareem? We should all make a sincere effort to make this Amal of ten Durood Shareef recitations in the morning and ten Durood Shareef recitations in the evening, part of our daily routine.

 

There are immense blessings in reciting Durood Shareef which will even assist us in our graves.

Durood Shareef before All Good Actions

Hafiz Abu Nu’aim states that Hazrat Sufyan Thawri reported to me, “I was on my way somewhere when I saw a young man, who would not raise or place his foot down without saying, ‘Allahum’ma Salle Ala Muhammadin Wa Ala Aale Muhammadin’.

I said to him, ‘On the basis of which knowledge do you say this?’ He said, ‘Who are you?’ I said, ‘Sufyan Thawri.’ He said, ‘Is it Sufyan the Iraqi?’ I said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘Do you know Allah?’ I said, ‘Yes.’

He asked, ‘How do you know Him?’ I said, ‘It is He who enters night into day, and day into night, and creates the form of a child in the womb of the mother.’ He said, ‘You have not understood that which is the Right of knowing Allah.’ So I said, ‘How did you know Allah?’ He said, ‘I made a firm intention (to do something).

He revoked what I intended. I made a firm intention, and He caused it to subside, so I knew that there is a Divine Planner who sets out my plans.’

I then asked, ‘What is (the wisdom) behind you reciting Durood Shareef upon Hazrat Muhammad .’ He said, ‘I took my mother with me and departed for Hajj.

My mother stopped in Makkah. Her stomach began to swell and her face became dark. I immediately realized that my mother had committed some sin.

I raised my hand in the Court of Allah (in Dua), when suddenly from the direction of Tihama, a cloud appeared, and then a personality dressed in a white garb appeared.

He ran his hands over her face and her face began to glow. He ran his hands over her stomach and the swelling subsided.’

I asked, ‘Who are you, for you removed me and my mother from our calamity?’ The personality said, ‘I am your Nabi Muhammad .’ I said, ‘Ya Rasool’Allah ! Please bless me with some advice.’

He said, ‘Never raise a foot without saying, ‘Allahum’ma Salle Ala Muhammadin Wa Ala Aale Muhammadin.’

Subhaan’Allah! The message of our Nabi was taken by him literally and he never raised his foot or placed it on the ground again without sending Durood upon Nabi Kareem.

Even if we take the figurative meaning of this, then we will understand that Nabi advised him to
recite Durood Shareef before doing anything (good) in life.

A Sinner is Forgiven

Imam Safuri ؓ◌ states in Nuzhat ul Majaalis that a person said, ‘I saw a person in Yemen who was blind, a leper, mute and crippled. I asked about his condition and the people said that he used to recite the Qur’an in a very beautiful tone of voice. Once, instead of reading the verse

 

innallah-wnnallah WaMalaikatahu Yushalluna Alan Nabi
innallah-wnnallah WaMalaikatahu Yushalluna Alan Nabi

 

 

In place of the word ‘Nabi’ he read ‘Ali’. In other words, he changed the Ayat e Durood. From that moment on he was engulfed by this calamity.’

It has been reported in the book Mufid Al Ulum Wa Mubid Al Humum by Imam Abu Haamid Qazweeni Alaihir Rahma that a person went on a journey with his son. During the journey, this man passed away and his head (face) became like that of a swine.

On seeing this, his son began to cry and he begged (for the forgiveness) of his father in the Court of Allah. Whilst in this state of distress he fell asleep, and in his dream, he heard a voice saying to him, ‘Your father used to charge interest (Riba/usury), but Hazrat Muhammad interceded on his behalf because whenever he heard the blessed Name of Nabi Kareem, he would send Durood upon Nabi Kareem, so We have restored his face to its original form.’ Allahu Akbar!

Look at the detrimental effect of charging interest! However, this man was fortunate that he sincerely used to send Durood upon Nabi Kareem and the Barkat of this, and his son asking Dua on his behalf afforded him the intercession of Nabi Kareem.

However, this does not mean that we should intentionally commit sin and then expect salvation because of Durood Shareef. We must abstain from sinful acts and continue reciting Durood Shareef in hope that Almighty Allah will forgive our weaknesses due to the recitation of Durood Shareef.

 

Our Nabi and the Deer Once the Beloved Rasool went into the wilderness. Nabi Kareem saw a deer that had been trapped by a hunter. The deer said, ‘Ya Rasool’Allah, ask the hunter to release me, so that I may feed milk to my children and then return, and if I do not return, then I am even worse than that person who does not send Durood upon you when you are mentioned.’

Nabi took responsibility for the Deer and guaranteed its return, so the hunter let her go. The deer went to her children with the intention of feeding them and mentioned to them her promise to Nabi Kareem.

 

Her children said to her, ‘Your milk is forbidden upon us until such time that you fulfill the guarantee that Nabi Sall Alaihi was Sallam gave on your behalf.’

The deer then returned (with her children) to the hunter (in order to fulfill her promise) and the hunter on seeing this amazing sight freed her and accepted Islam at the Blessed hand of Nabi Kareem. Subhaan’Allah!

Look at what the deer said. It said that if it did not fulfill its promise it was worse than that person who does not send Durood upon Nabi Kareem when he is mentioned. Even a deer knows the condition of someone who does not send Salaam upon Nabi Kareem when Nabi is mentioned.

 

Now what can be said about those who claim to be believers when Durood and Salaam are being rendered they become restless and quickly look for an exit and then slip away to avoid having to send Salaam upon Nabi Kareem.

Yet, they claim to be the men of ‘Tabligh’. Allah saves us from deviants and from their traps of deceit. Aameen.

Lesson From A Deer

It is reported that once a person was seated near the Sacred Rauda Shareef of The Beloved Rasool when a deer appeared and entered the Holy Haram of Nabi Kareem.

It then proceeded towards the Rauda e Mubarak. Once it reached the Sacred Rauda Shareef, the Deer stood in front with great respect and it began to respectfully gesture with its head as if it was conveying Salaam to Sayyiduna Rasoolullah.

The Deer then walked out backward with great respect, not allowing its back to face the Rauda Shareef. The scholars have said that indeed this deer too would have been from the lineage of the deer, which was freed by the hunter on the guarantee of Nabi.

Subhaan’Allah! Even this Deer knew the Adaab (ethics) of conveying Salaams in the Court of Nabi Kareem.

Subhaan’Allah! Look at the respect it displayed. It walked out backward and would not face its back to the Rauda Shareef of Nabi Kareem.

This should be a lesson to those disrespectful Wahabis who stand with their backs to the Rauda Shareef arrogantly chasing those who respectfully send Salaams at the Rauda Shareef. They should learn from respect, which even animals displayed when conveying Salaams to Nabi Kareem.

However, then we can conclude that they do not have the Taufiq to display this honor, due to their disrespect towards Nabi Kareem, whereas the deer had the Taufiq to show such honor to Nabi due to
the respect of its ancestor.

A Helper in our Graves

Hazrat Shaykh Shibli Rahmatullah Alaih says, ‘One of my neighbors had passed away, and then one day I saw him in my dream. I asked him about his condition and he mentioned that when he was placed in his grave, Munkar and Nakeer (the Angels of the grave) came to him, and asked him the questions of the grave.’

He says, ‘I tried to answer, but I could not speak. At that moment, I thought in my heart that I am probably not a Muslim anymore. Just then, a person appeared to me, and he guided me concerning the answers. I asked (this unknown) person, who are you and how have you become my well-wisher (helper) in such a crucial moment?’ He said, ‘I am the Angel who was created due to your abundant recitation of Durood, and today I am present here as your helper.’ Subhaan’Allah!

Which of us does not wish to have such a helper in our graves? Thus, we should increase the recitation of Durood Shareef, as it is indeed our means to salvation.

Freedom from Calamities

Reciting Durood upon Nabi Kareem is indeed a great blessing and a means of freedom from calamities. Whenever we are faced with difficult times in our lives we should increase the recitation of Durood Shareef upon Nabi Kareem.  An example of this is the following narration:

 

Durood e Tunaj’jeena

 

A mystic stated, ‘Once, I was journeying by ship, and our ship was caught in a storm. The ship could not handle the powerful gusts of wind, and soon our ship began to sink. I then suddenly dozed off and I dreamt of the Beloved Rasool who in my dream said to me, ‘Ask all of them to recite this (Durood)’:

durood e tanjeena

‘Allahum’ma Salle ‘Ala Sayyidina Muhammadin Salaatan Tunaj’jeena Biha Min Jamee’il Ahwaali Wal Aafaati Wa Taqdee Lana Biha Jamee’al Haajaati Wa Tu-Tah’hiruna Biha Min Jamee’is Sayi’aat Wa Tarfa’una Biha ‘Indaka Aa’lad Darajaat Wa Tubal’lighuna Bihaa Aqs-al Ghayaat min Jamee’il Khayraati Fil Hayaati Wa Ba’dal Mamaat.’ (In’naka Ala Kul’li Shay’in Qadeer)

The mystic further says, ‘I then woke from my sleep and asked all those present to recite this Durood, and by the Command of Allah, the wind (storm) subsided. Subhaan’Allah. The Durood that Nabi Kareem advised the mystic to recite is the famous Durood, which is known to the people as Durood e Tunjeena or Tunaj’jeena.
