Durood in bed

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 56:

Allah and His Angels send blessings on the Prophet: O ye that believe! Send ye blessings on him and salute him with all respect.


When the above aayah of the Quran was revealed the companions asked the Prophet (saws) how should the believers send salutations to him (saws).


Abu Mas'ud Al-Ansari reported the following account from Bashir ibn Sa'd: "I asked Prophet (saws) 'O Messenger of Allah (saws), Allah has commanded us to invoke blessings upon you. How should we do it?' The Messenger of Allah (saws) remained silent until we wished we had not asked him. Then he told us to say,

'Allahumma salli 'ala muhammadin wa 'ala ali muhammadin kama sallayta 'ala ali ibrahima, wa barik 'ala muhammadin wa 'ala ali muhammadin kama barakta 'ala ibrahima wa 'ala ali ibrahima; fil 'alamin, innaka hammidum majeed. {Narrated by Muslim.}

(O Allah, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as You blessed the family of Ibrahim, and give baraka to Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as You gave baraka to Ibrahim and the family of Ibrahim. In all the worlds, You are worthy of Praise and Glorious)


Hadrat Abu Dharr Ghaffari (r.a.) said that he heard the Prophet (saws) saying: 'The most miserly among people is the one who fails to invoke blessings upon me when my name is mentioned in his or her presence'.

Whenever one says the Prophets (saws) name, or the Prophets (saws) name is mentioned in their midst, it is obligatory for one who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day to send salutations of peace and blessings upon the Prophet (saws).


If one recites the full durood or salutation like one recites in the tashahud in prayer as taught the Messenger of Allah (saws), it would be best; if one sends a shortened salutation on only the Prophet Mohamed (saws) and his family, that would suffice to fulfill the command of Allah Subhanah; and if one sends salutations only upon the Prophet (saws) by declaring sallalaaho alayhe wa sallam, that too would suffice.


Your Question: Brother my question is can one supplicate Darood sharif while lying on bed...?

Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale-Imraan verses 190-191:

190 Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of night and day there are indeed Signs for men of understanding.

191 Men, who celebrate the praises of Allah; standing, sitting, and lying down on their sides and contemplate the (wonders of) creation in the heavens and the earth (with the thought): "O Our Lord! Not for naught hast Thou created (all) this! Glory to Thee! Give us salvation from the penalty of the fire.


Dear and beloved sister in Islam, a durood is no more than a supplication one makes to ones Lord Most High requesting Him to send blessings and peace upon our beloved Prophet Mohamed (saws); and there is absolutely no harm if one supplicates Allah whether they are standing, sitting, or lying down on their sides.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
