Durood during the blessed month of Ramadaan
At the end of Sha’baan, in a Hadith, Nabi صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم addressed the Sahaba رضي الله عنه on many advises regarding the blessed month of Ramadhaan. One of them is as follows: ” .
فَاسْتَكْثِرُوا فِيهِ مِنْ أَرْبَعِ خِصَالٍ، خَصْلَتَانِ تُرْضُونَ بِهَا رَبَّكُمْ، وَخَصْلَتانِ لَا غِنَى لَكُمْ عَنْهُمَا، فَأَمَّا الْخَصْلَتانِ اللَّتَانِ تُرْضُونَ بِهَا رَبَّكُمْ: فَشَهَادَةُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللهُ وَتَسْتَغْفِرُونَهُ، وَأَمَّا اللَّتَانِ لَا غِنَى لَكُمْ عَنْهُمَا فَتَسْأَلُونَ اللهَ الْجَنَّةَ، وَتَعُوذُونَ بِهِ مِنَ النَّارِ
“Do four things in abundance (during this month). Two of them are those through which you will please your Lord ﷻ, and two of them are those that you do not have independence from.
The things through which you will please your Lord ﷻ are:
(1) Bearing witness that there is no deity except Allah ﷻ, and (2) Seeking forgiveness.
The things that you do not have independence from are:
(1) Seeking Paradise from Allah ﷻ, and (2) Seeking the refuge of Allah ﷻ from the Hellfire.”
The meaning of this narration is, reciting the Kalima Tayyibah لَآاِلٰہَ اِلَّا اللہُ and istighfar (forgiveness) in abundance. Istighfar means abundantly seeking forgiveness for oneself from Allah ﷻ. Apart from this, one must seek Paradise from Allah ﷻ and His ﷻ refuge from the Hellfire.
[Sahih Ibn Khuzaymah, vol. 3, pg. 1887]
Durood (salawaat) is such a devotion that is never rejected by Allah Ta’ala no matter how how unmindfully it is recited. Therefore recite the following two Duroods (salawaat) excessively during the blessed month of Ramadhaan. It also contains the four Zikrs that have been mentioned in the above Hadith and much more inshaAllah
