Do We Remember Him


The love and concern that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) had for his ummah is unmatched. The deepest love of the most caring mother in the world for her only child is also a minute fraction of the love that Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) had for us – for you and I – and for his ummah to come till the last day. Hence, he remembered his ummah on every occasion. Even on the Day of Judgement, when everyone will be concerned for themselves, Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) will be praying for the forgivness of his ummah.

While he remembered us so excessively, how much do we remember him? How much Durud (salutations) do we recite daily? Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) has greatly stressed the importance of reciting durood upon him. Among the benefits of Durud shareef mentioned in the Ahadith are the following:

• For every Durud recited, Allah Ta’ala sends ten blessings upon the reciter.

• The Durud and Salaam recited is conveyed to Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam).

• Excessive recitation of Durud removes all worries and anxieties.

• It is a means of gaining the closeness of Allah Ta’ala and Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam).

Therefore, it is the demand of our love for Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) that we daily recite Durud shareef upon him. At least hundred Durud shareef should be recited daily. We will be doing the greatest favour.
