It is written in "Bukhari Shareef" that after hearing the prayer call, Azaan, if anyone recites the following Durood

then he will certainly receive the Holy Prophet's (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) mercy and assistance on the Day of Judgement. In another narration, Hazrat Abu Darda (radi Allahu anhu) says that Sayyiduna Rasoolullah (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) himself used to recite this Durood Shareef after hearing the Azaan. He says that the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) used to read this in such an audible voice that those sitting besides him used to hear it. The Durood is the following: ALLAHUMA RABBA HAZIHID DA'WATIT TAAA MATTI WAS SALAATIL QAA'IMATI AATI MUHAMMADINIL WASILATA WAL FADEELATA WAB'ASHU MAQAMAM MAHMUDANIL LAZI WA 'ADTA'U. "O Allah! For the sake of this call of prayer and for the sake of this prayer, give Thy assistance to Muhammad, our master, and make him seated on the most exalted place which You had promised, i.e. the Maqaam-e-Mahmood".
