-- 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.
‘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.
(‘sallallahu alyihi wa sallam’) whenever the name of the Prophet [saw] is heard, written or read is an act of great virtue and excellence.
