The Timing of

Durood

Shareef

9
I

t is recorded that Hazrat Abi bin Kaab [Radi Allaahu anhu] inquired

from Prophet Muhammad [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] as to how much


time should he dedicate for reading Durood Shareef. He replied, "As
much as you wish". He then asked, "Should I not dedicate a quarter of
my time?" Saiyyidinah Rasool ul laah
[Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] replied,

"As you wish, if you increase the recitation it would be better for
you". He further asked, "O Master! If it is better, should I not
dedicate half my time?" He replied, "As you wish. If you increase it
though, it would be better for you".

Hazrat Abi bin Kaab (Radi Allaahu Anhu) then


remarked, "O Master! Should I not, therefore, dedicate my
entire time in the recital of the Durood?" To this Prophet
Muhammad [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] replied, "If
you do this, then all your obligations will be fulfilled and all
your sins will be forgiven!" (Mishkaat Shareef)
From the above Hadees, we clearly realize the excellence
of reading the Durood Shareef as much as possible. O
Almighty Allaah Kareem! Grant us the strength to increase
the recital of the Durood Shareef. Aameen.
