Durood Shareef

Bismihi Ta'ala


A Great Ibaadah 

One very great Ibaadah that Allah (Jalla Jalaaluhu) has blessed this Ummah with, which is an enjoyable and pleasurable Ibaadah, is the recitation of Durood Shareef and sending Salawaat upon Nabi (Sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam). 

There are many types of Ibaadah like how there are many types or work and tasks a person has to do or undertake.

For example, one person is a labourer and has to fulfil many chores, like digging holes, etc. Another person works in an air-conditioned office, in comfort, and has light and easy tasks to fulfil. yet he takes a huge salary. 

Similarly, there are two paths of Dien. The one path is that which consists of lots of Mujahadah (striving and effort) and the other is to work a little, but receive great rewards in return.

One of the types of the latter path is the recitation of Durood Shareef. This is such an Ibaadah that can be done in the total comfort of one's home. A person should let the meter of his Durood Shareef run in the comfort of his home and thereby become the Muqarrib (close servant) of Allah (Jalla Jalaaluhu).

Amongst the closest servants to Allah (Jalla Jalaaluhu) are those who recite Durood Shareef in abundance, and why should it not be so when Allah (Jalla Jalaaluhu) Himself, has made mention of the honourable and lofty status of Nabi (Sallallaahu 'alaihi wasallam) in the Qur`aan Shareef.
