Saved from Wild Animals through Reciting Durood

Written by

يحكى عن الشيخ أبي الحسن الشاذلي رحمه الله أنه كان ببعض المفازات فأتته السباع فخافهم على نفسه ففزع إلى الصلاة على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم مستندا إلى ما صح من أنه من صلى عليه صلى الله عليه عشرا وأن الصلاة من الله رحمة ومن رحمه الله كفاه كل مهمة فنجا بذلك صلى الله عليه وسلم تسليما كثيرا (القول البديع ص265)

It has been reported regarding Sheikh Abul Hasan Shaazili (rahimahullah) that on one occasion, he was in the wilderness when wild animals began to approach him. Fearing that these animals would harm him, he immediately resorted to reciting durood and salaat upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). The reason for him doing this is that it is reported in the authentic Ahaadith that when a person sends one salaat upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), Allah Ta‘ala sends ten salaat (i.e. mercies) upon him, and the one upon whom Allah Ta‘ala showers His mercy, Allah Ta‘ala suffices him for all the worries and difficulties that he faces. Hence, through reciting durood upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), Sheikh Shaazili (rahimahullah) was saved from the wild animals.

Saved through the Blessing of Durood

Written by

يحكى عن الشبلي رحمه الله قال : مات رجل من جيراني فرأيته في المنام فقلت : ما فعل الله بك فقال : يا شبلي مرت بي أهوال عظيمة وذلك أنه أرتج علي عند السؤال فقلت في نفسي : من أين أتي علي ألم أمت على الإسلام فنوديت : هذه عقوبة إهمالك للسانك في الدنيا فلما هم بي الملكان حال بيني وبينهما رجل جميل الشخص طيب الرائحة فذكرني حجتي فذكرتها فقلت : من أنت يرحمك الله قال : أنا شخص خلقت من كثرة صلاتك على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم وأمرت أن أنصرك في كل كرب ذكره ابن بشكوال (القول البديع ص265)

Sheikh Shibli (rahimahullah) reports the following incident: On one occasion, one of my neighbors passed away. Sometime later, I saw him in a dream. I asked him, “How did Allah Ta‘ala deal with you?” He replied, “O Shibli! I underwent great distress and difficulty, as I was unable to reply to the questions of the angels in the grave! When I found that I was unable to speak and reply, I thought to myself, ‘Why am I undergoing such hardship? Did I not pass away with Imaan?’ As soon as this thought crossed my mind, a voice called out to me, ‘This is the punishment for you being negligent regarding the use of your tongue in the dunya.’ Thereafter, when the two angels wished to punish me, a man who was most handsome and had an extremely exquisite fragrance emitting from him intervened between me and the angels and assisted me to give the correct answer. After giving the correct answer to the angels and being saved from the punishment, I asked the man, ‘Who are you? May Allah have mercy on you!’ The man answered, ‘I am a man who has been created by Allah through the abundant durood that you recited on Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). I have been sent and commanded to assist you at the time of your difficulty.’”

Reserving a Special Time for Reciting Durood

Written by

عن محمد بن يحيى بن حبان عن أبيه عن جده رضي الله عنه أن رجلا قال يا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم أجعل ثلث صلاتي عليك قال نعم إن شئت قال الثلثين قال نعم إن شئت قال فصلاتي كلها قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إذا يكفيك الله ما أهمك من أمر دنياك وآخرتك رواه الطبراني بإسناد حسن (الترغيب والترهيب رقم 2578)

Hazrat Habbaan bin Munqiz (rahimahullah) reports that a certain Sahaabi once asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), should I devote one-third of the time I have allocated for du‘aa to recite durood upon you?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “Yes, if you wish.” The Sahaabi then asked, “Should I devote two-thirds of that time for reciting durood upon you?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) again replied, “Yes, if you wish.” The Sahaabi then asked, “Should I devote all of that time for reciting durood upon you?” Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) responded, “If you do so, Allah Ta‘ala will suffice you of every need which you have (and you would have asked for in your du‘aa), whether it relates to your dunya or your Aakhirah.”

Salvation through the Abundant Recitation of Durood

Written by

وعند ابن بشكوال : رأى بعض الناس أبا حفص الكاغدي بعد وفاته في المنام وكان سيدا كبيرا فقال له : ما فعل الله بك قال : رحمني وغفر لي وأدخلني الجنة فقيل له : بماذا قال : لما وقفت بين يديه أمر الملائكة فحسبوا ذنوبي وحسبوا صلاتي على المصطفى صلى الله عليه وسلم فوجدوها أكثر فقال لهم المولى جلت قدره : حسبكم يا ملائكتي لا تحاسبوه واذهبوا به إلى جنتي (القول البديع ص259-260)

A person once saw Abu Hafs Al-Kaaghadi (rahimahullah), who was a very pious person, in a dream after his demise. On seeing Abu Hafs (rahimahullah), he asked him, “How did Allah Ta‘ala deal with you?” Abu Hafs (rahimahullah) replied, “Allah Ta‘ala had mercy on me, forgave me and admitted me into Jannah.” When Abu Hafs (rahimahullah) was asked the reason for him being honored and blessed in this manner, he said, “When I stood before Allah Ta‘ala, He commanded the angels to commence counting my deeds. They thus counted my sins and counted my durood upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam, and found that my durood upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) outnumbered my sins. Allah Ta‘ala then said to the angels, ‘O My angels! This is sufficient! Do not take him into account for his sins and enter him into my Jannah!’”

Forgiven through the Blessing of Durood

Written by

عن رجل من الصوفية قال : رأيت الملقب بمسطح بعد وفاته وكان ماجنا في حياته فقلت له : ما فعل الله بك قال : غفر لي فقلت : بأي شيء قال : استمليت على بعض المحدثين حديثا مسندا فصلى الشيخ على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فصليت أنا معه ورفعت صوتي بالصلاة على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فسمع أهل المجلس فصلوا عليه فغفر لنا في ذلك اليوم كلنا أخرجه ابن بشكوال (القول البديع ص259)

A certain pious person narrated the following incident: I once saw the person who was known by the title ‘Mistah' in a dream after he passed away. He was a sinful person during his lifetime. On seeing him in the dream, I asked him, “How did Allah Ta‘ala deal with you?” He replied, “Allah Ta‘ala forgave me” I asked him, “On account of which action?” He answered, “On one occasion, I asked a certain Muhaddith to recite a Hadith to me with its chain to Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). On taking the blessed name of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), the Muhaddith recited durood upon him. I also recited durood upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) in a loud tone. Hearing me recite durood aloud, all the people who were present in the gathering also recited durood upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam). At that moment, Allah Ta‘ala forgave the sins of each and every one of us.”

One Qeeraat of Reward in Lieu of Each Durood

Written by

عن علي بن أبي طالب رضي الله عنه أن رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم قال : من صلى علي صلاة كتب الله له قيراطا والقيراط مثل أحد أخرجه عبد الرزاق بسند ضعيف (القول البديع ص265)

Hazrat ‘Ali bin Abi Taalib (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Whoever sends durood upon me once, Allah Ta‘ala will record one qeeraat of reward for him, and one qeeraat is equal to the mountain of Uhud.”

يَا رَبِّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ دَائِمًا اَبَدًا عَلَى حَبِيْبِكَ خَيْرِ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمِ

عن عمار بن ياسر رضي الله عنه قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : إن لله ملكا أعطاه أسماع الخلائق، فهو قائم على قبري إذا مت، فليس أحد يصلي علي صلاة إلا قال : يا محمد صلى عليك فلان ابن فلان، قال : فيصلي الرب تبارك وتعالى على ذلك الرجل بكل واحدة عشرا رواه أبو الشيخ ابن حيان وأبو القاسم التيمي في ترغيبه والحارث في مسنده وابن أبي عاصم في كتابه (القول البديع ص251)

Hazrat ‘Ammaar bin Yaasir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Indeed Allah Ta‘ala has an angel whom He has given the ability to hear the voices of the entire creation. This angel remains standing at my blessed grave since the time I passed away. There is no person who recites durood upon me once except that this angel says, “O Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! So-and-so, the son of so-and-so, has recited durood upon you.” Allah Ta‘ala then showers ten mercies upon that person in exchange of every durood that he recites.”

Honored by Allah Ta‘ala due to Reciting Abundant Durood

Written by

يحكى أن أبا العباس أحمد بن منصور لما مات رآه رجل من أهل شيراز وهو واقف في المحراب بجامع شيراز وعليه حلة وعلى رأسه تاج مكلل بالجوهر فقال له : ما فعل الله بك؟ قال : غفر لي وأكرمني وتوجني وأدخلني الجنة فقال له : بماذا؟ قال : بكثرة صلاتي على رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم رواها النميري وكذا ابن بشكوال في القربة وفي ترجمة جماهر من كتاب الصلة له أيضا (القول البديع ص259)

It is reported regarding Abul ‘Abbaas, Ahmed bin Mansoor, that after he passed away, a man from the inhabitants of Sheeraaz saw him in a dream. In the dream, Ahmed bin Mansoor was standing in the mihraab of the Jaami’ Musjid of Sheeraaz, he was adorned in a set of (beautiful) clothing and had a crown on his head which was decorated with precious stones. The man asked him, “How did Allah Ta‘ala deal with you?” He replied, “Allah Ta‘ala forgave my sins, granted me honor, crowned me with the crown of Paradise and blessed me with entry into Jannah.” The man thus asked, “On account of which action did Allah Ta‘ala honor you with this lofty position?” He replied, “On account of the abundant durood that I would recite on Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam).”

The Blessing of the Gatherings of Zikr

Written by

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : إن لله سيارة من الملائكة إذا مروا بحلق الذكر قال بعضهم لبعض : اقعدوا فإذا دعا القوم أمنوا على دعائهم فإذا صلوا على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم صلوا معهم حتى يفرغوا ثم يقول بعضهم لبعض : طوبى لهؤلاء يرجعون مغفورا لهم رواه أبو القاسم التيمي في ترغيبه (القول البديع ص258)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Indeed Allah Ta‘ala has certain angels which roam throughout the earth. When they pass by the gatherings of zikr, the angels say to one another, ‘Let us sit in this gathering.' Thereafter, when the people of the gathering make du‘aa, the angels say ‘Aameen’ to their du‘aa, and when they recite durood upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), the angels recite durood with them, until their gathering of zikr terminates. At that point, the angels say to one another, ‘Glad tidings to these people, they are returning with all their (minor) sins forgiven!’”

The Angels recording the Durood

Written by

عن عقبة بن عامر رضي الله عنه قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : إن للمساجد أوتادا جلساؤهم الملائكة إن غابوا فقدوهم وإن مرضوا عادوهم وإن رأوهم رحبوا بهم وإن طلبوا حاجة أعانوهم فإذا جلسوا حفت بهم الملائكة من لدن أقدامهم إلى عنان السماء بأيديهم قراطيس الفضة وأقلام الذهب يكتبون الصلاة على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ويقولون : اذكروا رحمكم الله زيدوا زادكم الله فإذا استفتحوا الذكر فتحت لهم أبواب السماء واستجيب لهم الدعاء وتطلع عليهم الحور العين وأقبل الله عز وجل عليهم بوجهه ما لم يخوضوا في حديث غيره ويتفرقوا فإذا تفرقوا أقام الزوار يلتمسون حلق الذكر رواه أبو القاسم ابن بشكوال بسند ضعيف وذكره صاحب الدر المنظم (القول البديع ص257)

Hazrat ‘Uqbah bin ‘Aamir (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Indeed the Masaajid have ‘pegs’ (i.e. people who remain committed to the musjid engaged in ‘ibaadah, just as pegs are fixed to the ground). The angels remain seated with such people. If they are absent from the musjid, the angels miss them, and if they are sick, the angels visit them, and if the angels see them, they welcome them, and if they have any need, the angels assist them to fulfill their need. When they sit (in the musjid to engage in the remembrance of Allah Ta‘ala, recitation of durood, etc), the angels throng around them from their feet until the sky. These angels have pages of silver and pens of gold in their hands with which they record the durood upon Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) (which is recited by these people). The angels say to them, “Continue engaging in the zikr of Allah Ta‘ala, May Allah Ta‘ala have mercy on you! Increase (your zikr and durood), may Allah Ta‘ala increase you (in good)!” When these people commence making the zikr of Allah Ta‘ala, the doors of the sky are opened for them, their du‘aas are answered, the damsels of Jannah peer down at them, and Allah Ta‘ala focuses His special mercy towards them so long as they do not engage in any other activity and they do not depart. When they depart from the musjid, the angels rise and search for the gatherings of zikr.”
