It is reported that one day, Hadrat Sayyiduna Ubay bin Ka’ab – may Allah be pleased with him – presented himself in the blessed court of the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – and asked, “O Prophet of Allah, among my daily activity during the night and day, I also allocate a certain portion to Dhikr and pondering. During this moment also, I recite much Durood upon you. How much of this time should I allocate to Durood Shareef?”

 

The Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – replied, “As much time as you wish.”

 

Hadrat Sayyiduna Ubay bin Ka’ab – may Allah be pleased with him – then asked, “In the time of my Du’a, if I allocate one fourth to reciting Durood Shareef, then?”

 

The Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – replied, “As much as you can read, if you recite even more, this would be better for you.”

 

Hadrat Sayyiduna Ubay bin Ka’ab – may Allah be pleased with him – asked, “If I allocate half this time of Du’a for reciting Durood Shareef?”

 

The Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – replied, “As much as you wish, if you recite even more, this would be better for you.”

 

Hadrat Sayyiduna Ubay bin Ka’ab – may Allah be pleased with him – asked, “If I allocate two thirds of the time?”

 

The Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – replied, “As much as you wish, if you recite even more, it would be better for you.”

 

Hadrat Sayyiduna Ubay bin Ka’ab – may Allah be pleased with him – asked, “Can I not allocate the complete time to (Durood Shareef)?”

 

The Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – replied, “In that case, all your sorrows and concerns will be removed and (all) your sins will be pardoned.” (Tirmidi Shareef)

 

This clearly proves the immense benefit of reciting the Durood Shareef and the Salaam upon the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him. Again, we note that it is very sad that there are people who claim to be followers of the Holy Prophet – may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him – but when they hear his blessed name, they remain silent and do not even recite the Durood Shareef. There is also a Hadith Shareef which clearly tells us that people of this nature are the biggest misers in this world. We make Du’a that Allah Almighty blesses us with the power to continue reciting the Durood Shareef.
