Virtues of Reading durood (Hadeeth 5)
Hadhrat Abu Hurayra (RA) narrates that Rasulullah ﷺ said, “Whoever sends durood upon me by my grave, I hear his durood and whenever durood is sent upon me from a distance, they are brought to me.”
Many ahaadith have been narrated that when a person sends durood from a distance, an angel brings it to Rasulullah ﷺ and the durood sent upon him from near are heard by Rasulullah ﷺ himself.
The second point mentioned in this ḥadīth is that the durood sent close to the blessed grave are heard by Rasulullah ﷺ himself. Sulaymaan bin Suḥaym (RA) said, “I saw Rasulullah ﷺ in a dream. I asked, ‘O Messenger of Allah, do you understand the salaams of those who come to your grave and make salaam to you?’ Rasulullah ﷺ replied, “Yes, I understand and I also reply to their salaams.”
Ibraahīm bin Shaybaan (RA) says, “After completing ḥajj, I travelled to Madīna Munawwara and went to the blessed grave of Rasulullah ﷺ. I made salaam and heard ‘Salaams upon you too (wa alaykas salaam)’ from inside the grave.” The hadīth says, “I hear the salaam of the person who is close [to the grave] myself and the durood of the person from far are brought to me by the travelling angels. However, I reply in every case.”
From this, we learn the virtue of sending durood upon Rasulullah ﷺ and the honour granted to the sender, especially one who sends durood abundantly. If a person were to receive a reply to even one of the salaams in a whole lifetime, it would be a great honour, let alone a reply to every salaam.
The fact that Rasulullah ﷺ hears the blessings personally is not a point of question, as the Ambiyaa (alayhimus salaam) are alive in their graves. We believe and confirm that Rasulullah ﷺ is alive in his grave and that the earth cannot decompose his blessed body.
It is excellent to send durood abundantly when one sees the trees and buildings of Madīna Munawwara. As one approaches nearer the blessed city, one should increase the sending of durood, for these are the places wherein the Qur-aan was revealed. Hadhrat Jibraeel and Hadhrat Mīkaaeel frequented this place and the blessed soil of Madīna contains the Leader of Mankind (i.e. Nabi ﷺ. From here the religion of Allah Ta’ala and the way (sunnah) of Rasulullah ﷺ spread. This is the home of all good and virtue. When you come to Madinah, you should be full of fear and respect, as though you are going to meet Rasulullah ﷺ, for it is definite that Rasulullah ﷺ will hear your salaams.
