How many times to say durood in a day
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 and His Angels send blessings on the Prophet: O ye that believe! Send ye blessings on him and salute him with all respect.

Your Question: .how much times we can say Darood Sharif on Propfit Mohammad ( may peace be upon him ) per day .
There is absolutely no minimum or maximum number stipulated in the Quran or the Sunnah regarding how many times a believer can send the salutations or durood upon their noble Prophet (saws). One is at liberty to recite the salutations or the durood upon their beloved Prophet (saws) whenever his blessed name is mentioned in their presence and as often and as many times as their hearts desire or is easy or convenient for them.the more one recites the durood, the more one will be rewarded.
Ibn Masud reported that the Prophet (saws) said, "The people nearest to me on the Day of Judgment will be the ones most conscientious in invoking blessings upon me."

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.
