Darood Sharif

“Lo! Allah and His angels shower blessings on the Prophet. O ye who believe! Ask blessings on him and salute him with a worthy salutation”. Quran (33:56)
Hazrat Ubay bin Ka’ab (RA) reports that, “I asked ‘O Rasoolullah, I would like to recite much darood upon you, how much of the time that I have set aside for dua shall I use for it?’ Rasoolullah (salallaho alayhi wa sallam – peach be upon him) replied, ‘As much as you wish.’
I said, ‘Then I shall use one quarter thereof’. Rasoolullah (salallaho alayhi wa sallam – peach be upon him) said, ‘It is as you wish and if you increase beyond that it shall be better for you’.
I said, ‘In that case I shall make it half of the time’. Rasoolullah (salallaho alayhi wa sallam – peach be upon him) said, ‘It is as you wish and if you increase beyond that it shall be better for you’.
I said, ‘In that case I shall make it two thirds of the time’. Rasoolullah (salallaho alayhi wa sallam – peach be upon him) said, ‘It is as you wish and if you increase beyond that it shall be better for you’.
I said, ‘O Rasoolullah (salallaho alayhi wa sallam – peach be upon him) I make the intention now that I shall set aside all the time of dua for reciting darood upon you’.
Rasoolullah (salallaho alayhi wa sallam – peach be upon him) replied, ‘In that case all your worries shall be removed and your sins be forgiven”.
