How To Read Durood Sharif? All Honor’s While Reciting Durood

السَّلاَمُ َلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ Brothers and sisters, all of you are welcome on our website. Today we will know about Durood Sharif. That is, how to read durood including all Honor’s.

Durood is a very great act, about which Allah has given us a command in the Qur’an also, there is a blessing of Allah in verse 55 of Surah Al-Ahzab of the Qur’an.

اِنَّ اللّٰهَ وَمَلٰٓٮِٕكَتَهٗ يُصَلُّوۡنَ عَلَى النَّبِىِّ ؕ يٰۤـاَيُّهَا الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡا صَلُّوۡا عَلَيۡهِ وَسَلِّمُوۡا تَسۡلِيۡمًا

Allah and his angels send Darood on the prophet. O, believers! Send Darood and many salutes on them.

And there is also a hadith where Prophet ﷺ said, who will read Durood Sharif on me as much as there is in the world. He will be much closer to me on the Day of Judgment.

Let’s do Bismillah and start this post.

Honour’s Of Durood Sharif

  1. Before taking the name of our Great Prophet ﷺ, We must take care of the honours. That’s why, When you recite durood on the prophet ﷺ it is necessary to take the special care of such adabs because the unconditional love is that the durood is being represented with honour on our Prophet ﷺ. So, While reading durood everyone should take the honours.
  2. Durood should be recited with full heart and passion, which means that your mind and brain must be present while reciting the durood sharif. Remove all the worthless imaginations from your mind and Keep this map that you’re present in the Majlis(assembly) of our prophet ﷺ, from this you’ll be able to feel the Azmat(magnificence) and Rafat(highlight) of the Prophet ﷺ.
  3. While reading Durood-e-Pak, Turn your face towards the direction of the Grave of the Prophet ﷺ, then sit in the form of meditation, close your eyes and start reading Durood and try to read as many Durood as you can.
  4. While reciting Durood Sharif, Imagine the Prophet ﷺ, If any of you had seen the prophet in his dream then he should imagine the prophet in front of his eyes from the deep of his heart. If not, then he should be wishful to see the prophetﷺ because, from this practice, the soul of the person reciting Durood will come and go in Majlis-e-Muhammad ﷺ, he will be lost with the eyes of the soul and the one who lost while reciting durood on the prophet ﷺ, by this, his soul will be peaceful and satisfied and the Rahmah (Blessings) of Allah pours on him and there is a time comes on him that he/she feels that his body is lost in reciting durood. The reciter is rich with the Rahmat(Blessings) of ALLAH.
  5. We should imagine that the order of reciting durood on Prophet ﷺ is given by ALLAH, as I mentioned before. So, We have to obey this order and make your intention that you’re reciting the Durood to achieve the Raza-e-Elahi(Forgiveness of Allah). Think that you’re doing this practice cause it’s the order of ALLAH that’s why I am doing it. The reward of reciting durood will be reduced if the intention is different.
  6. The place where you’re reciting the durood must be clean and do not recite the durood when the place is dirty or impure. Places where, Alcohol, Gutka, Tobacco, intoxication is done, where luxuries are practised, such as clubs, singing places, where falsehood and gibbat(Backbiting) are done, and places where hatred is hated, do not read Durood sharif there.
  7. While reciting Durood Sharif, Avoid the shahwat (desires) and riyahkari (appearance, show off), Don’t make your intention to gain worldly fame and glory. This means that if helping someone, attend the gathering (involved) then one should not do any favour to the feaster or anyone else, but in the recitation of Durood Sharif, one should keep an eye on the forgiveness of Allah.
  8. If you hear or write the name of the prophet ﷺ, then you must read Durood on it, that is, only read Sallallahu-alaihi-wasallam as Allah Ta’ala has commanded in the Qur’an-e-Majid. For this, it is necessary to write to say. Hazrat Ibn Abbas Raziallahu Anhun was a famous Muhaddis(Scholar), while writing the name of the prophet ﷺ, he did not write only the word of durood i.e. Wasallam. One night the prophet ﷺ said, “Why do you leave forty virtuous deeds, why do you ignore the four hurufs(letters) of Wasallam on me and be deprived of those virtuous deeds, because, in exchange for every one harf(letter), you get ten virtuous deeds, then from that day onwards.” Hazrat Abbas Raziallahuanhu started writing the complete words of Darood Sharif.
  9. Darood-e-Pak can be read both i.e. with a high voice or a battered (slow) voice, if one reads in a loud voice or a low voice then he/she can read, there is no problem with this. It is better that if you are alone, then read in a loud voice and if you are in a Majlis(assembly) and in a place from where someone got irritates, then read in a low voice. Reading in a low voice gives spiritual blessings.
  10. In Durood Sharif, where the name of Muhammad came and the word of Sayyedna is not written, then add the word Sayyidna for honour cause its better to say sayyidna when the name of Muhammad to honour the prohpetﷺ.
  11. Hazrat Abu Alwahib shaili kadsi said that: one day I was reciting durood so quickly to complete my 1000 duroods goal which I usually recite every day then Prophet ﷺ said that Hey shaili:- “Didn’t you know the that the rush is from the devil” and the Prophet ﷺ said recite this ‘Allahumma salle ala sayyidna Muhammad wa’ali sayyidna Muhammad.
