Imam al-Busiri (may Allah be pleased with him) started one of his poems with this line:
بمدح محمد تحيا القلوب * وتغتفر الخطايا والذنوب
By the praise of Muhammad hearts come to life and errors and sins are forgiven
Shaykh Salih al-Ja’fari (may Allah be pleased with him) expanded it by the poetic art form known as tashteer where you split the line in half and insert another line in between. It’s a way of honoring a line of poetry that one loves by adding to it.
بمدح محمد تحيا القلوب * وتندفع المصائب والكروب وتنهلّ العطايا من كريم * وتغتفر الخطايا والذنوب
By the praise of Muhammad hearts come to life and troubles and catastrophes are pushed away And generous gifts shower down from a Generous One and errors and sins are forgiven
اللهم صل وسلم وبارك على سيدنا محمد وعلى آله
Sending Salawaat on all the Prophets and Salaat al-Jibraa’eeliyya
Al-Tabarani and others narrated on the authority of Abu Hurayra (may Allah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said:
صلوا على أنبياء الله ورسله فإن الله بعثهم كما بعثني
“Send prayers upon the prophets of Allah and His messengers, for Allah has sent them as He has sent me.”
The ‘Shaykh of the Hadith Scholars’ Abu Musa al-Madini said: It has reached me through a chain of narrators to one of our righteous predecessors (salaf) that he saw Adam (peace be upon him) in his sleep, as if he was complaining of how little his children send salaat upon him. May Allah send salaat upon our Prophet and upon him and all the prophets and messengers, and send them salaam.
The All-Encompassing Salaat (al-salaat al-jaami’ah)also known as: al-Salaat al-Jibraa’eeliyya)
by Shaykh Ahmad ibn Idris (may Allah be pleased with him and please him)
اللهم صل وسلم وبارك على مولانا محمد وعلى آله وعلى جميع الانبياء والمرسلين وعلى جبريل وميكائيل وإسرافيل وملك الموت وحملة العرش وعلى الملائكة أجمعين وعلى الاولياء والصالحين وعلى جميع عبادك المؤمنين فى كل لمحة ونفس عدد ماوسعه علمك أمين
Oh Allah, send prayers and peace and blessings upon our master Muhammad and his family,
and all the prophets and messengers, and upon Jibreel, and Mikaeeel, and Israfeel, and the Malak al mowt,
and the Bearers of the Throne, and upon all the angels
and upon the awliya and the righteous, and upon all Your believing slaves in every glance and every breath, as many times as all the things contained in Your knowledge. Ameen.
It is mentioned in Risalat al-Awrad al-Idrisiyya, that :
‘Whoever recites this salaat will be rewarded with assistance from every prophet and messenger and angel and wali and all of Allah’s slaves on the Day of Judgment.’
DUROOD Naariyah, Kaamilah Taaziyah and its author:
Shaykh Ibrahim al-Rashid, student and successor of Shaykh Ahmad ibn Idris RA, said :
“The Knower of Allah and guide to Him, sayyidi Abd al-Wahhab al-Tazi, who stayed in the spiritual rank of Ghawth for 34 years….”
He is the author of the famous Salaat Taaziyya – which, due to mistakes by copyists, became famous all over the world as al-Salaat al-Naariyya – also known as al-Kamila (the Complete Salaat):
اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ صَلاةً كَامِلَةً وَسَلِّمْ سَلَاماً تَامّاً
عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ الَّذِي تَنْحَلُّ بِهِ الْعُقَدُ
وَتَنْفَرِجُ بِهِ الْكُرَبُ وَتُقْضَى بِهِ الْحَوَائِجُ
وَتُنَالُ بِهِ الرَّغَائِبُ وَحُسْنُ الْخَوَاتِمِ
وَيُسْتَسْقَى الْغَمَامُ بِوَجْهِهِ الْكَرِيمِ
وَعَلَى آلِهِ وَصَحْبِهِ فِي كُلِّ لَمْحَةٍ وَنَفَسٍ
بِعَدَدِ كُلِّ مَعْلُومٍ لَكَ
O Allah! Bestow complete blessings and perfect peace
on our master Muhammad
by whom all our difficulties be removed,
all calamities and agonies prevented; all needs fulfilled;
all our cherished desires obtained; and a good end to life;
and send us rain-showering clouds by means of his noble countenance,
and on his family and companions in every glance and every breath,
as many times as all that is in Your Knowledge.
Imam Muhammad al-Qurtubi relates that anyone who recites this durood 41 or 100 times everyday, Allah will remove their worries, concerns and grievances; will ease their affairs, enlighten their hearts and elevate their status; will improve their state, increase their sustenance, and open the doors to good and bounty. He will fulfill their intention and will secure them from unfortunate events, afflictions of hunger and poverty. He will cast the love of them in people’s hearts and he will not ask anything from Allah, Exalted is He, except that they will be granted it. But one will not achieve these benefits except by perseverance, for this salutation is a treasure from the Treasures of Allah.”
بحق المصطفى يا رب يسر***زيارةَ خير خلقك أجمعينا
وأدخلني رحابَ القدس حتى***أشاهدَه مشاهدةً يقينا
أُسَلِّمُ عند روضته سلامًا***له عطرٌ ويسمعه نبينا
نديُّ الكف معطاءٌ كريمٌ***يفوق عطاؤه الغيثَ الهتونا
يلاقَي عند رؤيته بِبِشرٍ***يُحَيِّي دائمًا للزائرينا
وفاح المسك والأعطار فاحت***بروضته تسر الناظرينا
نراهم عند روضته وقوفًا***كأملاك السماء موقِّرينا
ودمع الحب يقطر من عيونٍ***تود بأن ترى طه مبينا
وقد كُشِف الحجاب لأهل حبٍّ***فكانوا في الزيارة ناظرينا
هذه القصيدة لسيدى صالح الجعفرى
Salawat of the Awliya Digital ED
A collection of Durūds on the Best of Allāhʼs Creation for acquiring the love of Rasulullāh ﷺ the removal of worries, calamities, fulfilling of needs and for barakah in ones life
This book of Salawāt / Durūd contains various selected Durūds from the blessed lips of Rasulullāh sallallāhu alayhi wasallam and the Awliyā Allāh, the saintly friends of Allāh.
Durūd should be read for the pleasure of Allāh and as a means of love, veneration and gratitude to Rasulullāh sallallahu alayhi wasallam. However Durūd is such a devotion that if a duā is made together with it, Allāh readily accepts that dua. Thus it has been a practice of the Awliya of Allāh to seek the help of Allāh in times of distress by combining Durūd with their duās.
Many of the Durūds in this book have been shown to these Awliyā through Ilhām (inspiration) or have been granted acceptance and approval in the court of Rasulullāh Sallallāhu alayhi wasallam and some Durūds have been taught by Rasulullāh Sallallāhu alayhi wasallam to these Awliyā for increasing their nisbat (spiritual connection) with him, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or as a solution to various problems, difficulties and hardships they encountered in their lives. These pious servants of Allāh, after experiencing the barakah and benefits of these duruds began teaching them to their followers who also expereinced the barakah of these duruds in their lives.
Regular recital of these Durūds results in the reciter attaining a special love and bond with Rasulullāh sallallāhu alayhi wasallam and is also a means of removing poverty, difficulties, hardships, sicknesses, problems, worries and grief. To attain the full blessings of the Salawāt/DurŪds mentioned in this book they should be read as daily wird/wazīfa, either in the morning or the evening. In times of severe difficulty it should be read both morning and evening or after every Fardh Salah with the intention of relief from ones difficulty. Thereafter dua should be made. And the best intention is to attain the true love and following of Sayyidinā Rasulullāh ﷺ . It is advisable to recite this collection daily together with the 40 Hadith Durūd collection of Hadhrat Shaykh al-Hadith Moulānā Muhammad Zakariyyā Rahimahullāh.
