A person saw Abu Hafs Kaaghadi (rahimahullah) in a dream after his demise and enquired from him as to what had transpired? He replied: “Allah had mercy on me, forgave my sins and admitted me into paradise”. On asking him the reason for that, he answered: “When I appeared before Allah Ta’ala, the angels were commanded to count my durood as well as my sins. It turned out that my durood outnumbered my sins. Hence my Lord commanded: “O angels, let that be enough, let there be no further reckoning and take him into my Paradise”. (Al Qaulul-Badee’ pg 259)
Sayyiduna Ali (radi Allahu anhu) narrates that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) said, “For that person who reads the Durood Shareef once, Almighty Allah records in his or her favour reward (Thawaab) equal to Qiraat”. (Qiraat is equivalent in weight to Mount Uhud). (Al Qolul Badi)
A pious man once saw a horrible form of a person in a dream and asked him, “Who is this most ugly person?” He replied, “I am your evil deeds”. The man asked, ” And O, how can I be saved from you?” He replied, “By continous and numerous salaat (durood) on Hadhrat Mustapha Muhammad. صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ (Qowlul Badee)
Lesson: Abundance of Durood assures safety and salvation both in this world as well as the next.
