Durood upon the prophet 1

From now on I will make regular, if possible daily durood upon the prophet Muhammad صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم.

 

What is “durood”?

Durood is the Islamic practice of asking Allah to send peace and prayers upon the holy prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم.

The prophet is in no need of this as through the hard work he put in, the blood he shed, the tears that came forth from his eyes and the efforts which he exerted he is the beloved of Allah.

Love, the mother of all emotions.

Love is one of, if not the most powerful of all emotions. From it emanates warmth, radiance, passion manifesting itself in actions which at times result in a blessed union of a man and woman having a child and giving existence to a human being. It is an emotion that many crave, that many yearn for, others feel that they are denied a true form of love. It is the emotion for which many is the very centre of their lives and the pursuit of which is an elusive, painful journey with the hope that one day they can attain true love. However the greatest love of all is the love of the All-Powerful, the All-mighty, the one who is capable of all and can bestow to any supplicant any request of theirs.

He, Allah, is the greatest, and is greater than great. “Greatness” itself is something relative and is based on comparing, while He Himself is beyond comparison, beyond the finite borders of “greatness”. However just as His power is the greatest, his knowledge is the greatest, thus also His love is the greatest.

So whom does He, the King of kings, the Emperor of Emperors, the Lord of lords, the One and only love?

Who or what is the recipient of the love of the Almighty, the creator of the entire universe and that beyond?

The answer is the man known to humanity as the prophet who was sent the Quran, the prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم who told his people to worship the Creator alone and none besides him, to love their parents, to help the orphans, to aid the needy, to adhere to truthfulness in the market, to  not lie, to not cheat, the man whom the world knows as Muhammad صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم.

durood1

Allah said in his revelation to mankind, when He the Lord of lords, the King of Kings, the Emperor of emperors rather than not communicating with the weak and limited entity we know as the human race – rather than being like the monarchs of this world who seek not to address those not as high as them, when He instead chose to speak to us –  the following verses:

 

Indeed, Allah and His Angels send blessings upon the Prophet. O you who believe! Send blessings on him and greet him (with) greetings. (Quran, Surah: 33, verse: 56)

Thus this is an action which He, the Almighty Himself does and has allowed us to emulate Him in doing. We are not capable of doing many things which He alone Himself is doing, but we are capable of doing this.

So my Muslim brothers and sisters please be profuse and abundant in sending peace and prayers upon our noble prophet صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم.

All praise be to Allah the lord of the worlds and the master of existence. Peace and prayers be upon our noble prophet and upon his noble family and companions and his ummah (Islamic nation) and his brothers, the Anbiya (the prophets) and upon their followers. Peace be upon them all and may Allah make us all love our holy prophet and make us others love him. The one who does not love the prophet is not part of the ultimate love, the greatest love, the love of the Creator of the universe for the best of the creation, the beloved of Allah, Muhammad ibn Abdullah.

Peace be upon our noble prophet, the kind, soft, warm-hearted man inclined to mercy and forgiveness, the one who did not look at people’s forms and appearances, the one for whom the internal character of a person was much more important.

Peace be upon him and let us make durood for him day and night, every hour of the day and make others too love him and send peace and prayers upon him.

Ameen, thumma Ameen.
