Al-Qur'an 33:56 instructs us to read Durood Shareef
Al-Qur'an 33:56 instructs us to read Durood Shareef
ALLAHUMMA SALLI WA SALLIM WA BARIK ALA SAYYIDINA WA MAULANA MUHAMMADENIL NABY IL UMME YE SALLALLAHU ALAYHI WA SALLAM ADADA
KULLE ZARATIN WA ADADA KULLE SHAIEN WA ADADA MAFI ILMILLAHI SALATAN DAIMATAN BEDAWAME MULKILLAH WA ALFA ALFA ALFA MARRATIN WA
BARIK WA SALLI WA SALLIM TASLIMA. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- O' Allah shower blessings upon Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) our Master in the number that is in Thy knowledge, such that
those blessings may continue forever eternal as Thy Kingdom. O' Allah may Thy Benificence be upon the Beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and upon the house of the Beloved
Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in a number equal to a Millionfold of each atom created by Thee and Thy Blessings and
Thy Peace be upon him'.
The following Durood Shareef is perhaps the ultimate in Duroods. We are requesting Allah Almighty to send blessings upon the
Beloved Prophet Muhammad Mustafa (Peace and Blessings of Allah Almighty be upon him) equivalent to every atom created by
Allah Almighty in the universe multiplied by a million times, Subhanallah. No computer in the world could cope with the
numbers, yet only Allah Almighty knows how many blessings this comes too.
In the eyes of Allah Almighty reading Durood Shareef is of paramount importance, otherwise Allah Almighty would not have
commanded us to do so, as is the case in this ayat above. When Allah Almighty Himself, alongwith His Angels is sending Durood
Shareef on the Beloved Prophet Muhammad Mustafa (Peace and Blessings of Allaha Almighty be upon him), then this is an
important duty on the UMMAH to do likewise i.e. to practice what Allah Almighty and His Angels are doing.
The message of Allah Ta'ala to Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim) has come down to us in the form of the
Holy Quran and the teachings of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim) have reached us in the form of the
Ahadith. Let us see what both the Holy Quran and Ahadith say about Durood Shareef (Salawat):
Innal llaha wa Malaa'ikatahu Yu salluna allan nabiyi.
Ya Ayyuhal lazeena aamanu sallu alaihi wasallimu tasleema.
Almighty Allah says: "Surely Allah and His Angels send blessings on the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim). O you
who believe! Send Blessings (Durood) and Salutations (Salaams) on the Prophet with worthy Salutation".(Surah al-Ahzab: 56)
In this verse of the Holy Quran, Almighty Allah, His Malaa'ikah and the Muslims have been mentioned as sending Durood upon
Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim). So, Durood Shareef is actually "a Du'a in praise of the Holy Prophet
Muhammad (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim)."
Hazrat Anas (radi Allahu anhu) narrates that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim) said: "He who reads a
single Durood upon me, Almighty Allah blesses him ten times, ten of his sins are forgiven, and he is increased ten times in
stages (internally). (Mishkaat)
Hazrat Abdullah ibn Ma'sud (radi Allahu anhu) also narrates that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim) said:
"On the Day of Qiyamah, the closest to me from among the people will be those who have read the most amount of Durood
Divine blessings on Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim) is the highest and the most meritorious act in our
Deen. This "Divine Blessings" is called Durood Shareef.
Durood is a sure means of Allah Ta'ala granting blessings, peace, prosperity and favours of great magnitude on one who
recites Durood Shareef on the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim). The reciter of Durood Shareef receives all the
benefits in this world and utmost gain in the next world with addition to the love of the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi
The invocation of Blessings on the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim) is styled in Arabic as "Salawat", in Persian
as "Durood", and in Urdu as "Salawat-o-Salaam".
The special and exclusive aspect of this prayer is that Durood Shareef is immediately accepted by Allah Ta'ala. No one can
doubt its acceptance, as Durood Shareef is being recited by Allah Ta'ala too. Not only this, but He has revealed this secret
in the Holy Quran by saying:
Wara fa'na laka zikrah "Have I not exalted thy name."
