-- THE HOLY AL QURAN (33:56) INSTRUCTS US TO RECITE DUROOD AND SALAM TO HOLY PROPHET MUHAMMAD (P.B.U.H.) - Almighty Allah says: "Surely Allah and His Angels send blessings on the Holy Prophet (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallim). O you who believe! Send Blessings (Durood) and Salutations (Salaams) on the Prophet with worthy Salutation". (Surah al-Ahzab: 56) ---
In the eyes of Allah Almighty reading Durood Shareef is of paramount importance, otherwise Allah Almighty would not have commanded us to do so, as is the case in this ayat above. When Allah Almighty Himself, alongwith His Angels is sending Durood Shareef on the Beloved Prophet Muhammad Mustafa (Peace and Blessings of Allaha Almighty be upon him), then this is an important duty on the UMMAH to do likewise
‘Durood’ is a Persian word which has been adapted into Urdu. The equivalent for ‘Durood’ in Arabic is ‘Salaah’, which means blessings, mercy and supplications.
