One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Dear Brother Burhan,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

 

Please Can you confirm me brother whatever mention below is correct or not

 

Hadith 1

Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, "Without doubt, there is an Angel of Almighty Allah whom Allah has given power to listen to the voices of all the people. Whenever any persons reads a Durood Shareef, this Angel delivers the Durood Shareef to me. I then plead to Almighty Allah for the person to receive ten blessing for reading a single Durood Shareef". (Jaami'us Sagheer)

 

Hadith 2

Sayyiduna Abu Darda (radi Allahu anhu) narrates that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, "Increase the Durood Shareef on the Day of Jummah for it is a Day of Witnessing. It is a day when the Durood Shareef is presented to me. For that person who reads the Durood Shareef, his voice reaches me wherever he is". When it was inquired as to whether he would hear the voice even after leaving this world, Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) replied, "Yes, even after I have departed because Almighty Allah has made it Haraam upon the earth to devour the bodies of the Ambiya". (Jalaa'ilul Ifhaam)

 

Hadith 3

It is reported that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) was once asked about those who read the Durood Shareef after he had passed away. He replied, "I listen personally to the Durood Shareef of those who love me, while the Durood Shareef of others is presented to me". (Al Qolul Badi)

 

Hadith 4

Sayyiduna Abu Amaama (radi Allahu anhu) narrates that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, "Almighty Allah has promised me that after I pass away, He will give me the power to listen to every person who reads the Durood Shareef, even though I will be in Madinatul Munawwarah and my followers will be the East and West. O Abu Amaama, the entire creation has been placed in my tomb and I will see and hear all creation. He who reads the Durood Shareef ten times will receive a hundred rewards in return". (Durratun Naasiheen)

 

Hadith 5

If anybody reads 100 Durood Shareef on Thursday evening then according to Ahadith,
70 necessities will be met in this life and 30 in the Hereafter.


On every Thursday Allah Almighty sends Angels to the earth in the afternoon. They have silver leaves and golden pens which they use to record the Durood Shareef of the reciter from that afternoon of Thursday till the sunset of Friday.[11] The Beloved Prophet Muhammad Mustafa (Peace and Blessings of Allah Almighty be upon him) informed the Ummah, that reading Durood Shareef on Thursday night and Friday is presented to him.


The Beloved Prophet Muhammad Mustafa (Peace and Blessings of Allah Almighty be upon him) has also informed us the best way to have our prayers answered, and that is to start with and end with Durood Shareef

Significance of durood

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.

 

Respected brother, some parts of the narrations quoted by you above are indeed found in the authentic and established records of Sunnah, while there is no evidence for the other parts. Amongst the narrations regarding the durood which are considered authentic are:

Abdullah bin Amr bin Al-'As reported that he heard the Prophet (saws) saying, "If anyone invokes blessings upon me once, Allah will bestow blessings upon him ten times over."

Realted by Muslim.

 

Ibn Mas'ud 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." Related by Tirmidhi.

 

Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (saws) said, "Do not turn my grave into a site of festivities, but send greetings to me for your greetings are raised to me wherever you might be."

Related by Abu Daw'ud.

 

Aus reported that the Prophet (saws) said, "The best of your days is Friday, so send more and more greetings to me on it, for your greetings are presented to me." They asked, "How are our greetings presented to you while you are dead and your body is turned into dust?" He (saws) replied, "Allah has forbidden the earth to consume the bodies of the prophets."

Related by Abu Daw'ud and Nasa'i.

 

Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (saws) said, "When any muslim sends greetings to me, Allah returns my soul to me so that I may respond to his greetings."

Related by Abu Daw'ud.

 

Abu Talha Al Ansari said, "The Prophet (saws) woke up one day cheerful and beaming. His companions exclaimed, 'O Prophet of Allah (saws), you woke up today cheerful and beaming.' He (saws) replied, 'Yes! A messenger (Angel) of Allah, the Mighty and the Glorified, came to me and said, "If anyone from your Ummah sends you a salutation, Allah will record for him ten good deeds, wipe off ten of his sins, and raise him thereby ten degrees in rank, and He will return his salutation with a similar salutation".'

Related by Ahmad.

 

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.
