Hadith Number Eleven

Chapter 08 - Ziyyaarat of Madina., Dawah & Tabligh, Virtues of Hajj (Fazail e Hajj) / Sunday, October 31st, 2010

Hazrat Abu Hurairah R.A. reports that Rasulullah Sal’am said: ‘when a person stands at my grave reciting blessings on me, I hear it; and whoever calls for blessings on me in any other place, his every need in this world and in the hereafter becomes fulfilled. And on the day of Qiyaamat I shall be his witness and intercession.’ (Bayhaqi)

According to another hadith, Allah had appointed a special angel whose duty is to take the recited ‘Durood’ to the Nabi Sal’am, so that no matter where the Durood is being recited, it reaches him in Madina. How much more virtues is it not if one should stand reciting the ‘Durood’ at the grave where the Holy Nabi Sal’am can directly hear it personally. And how much more fortunate are those people who live in Madina and whose greetings Rasulullah Sal’am hears at all times without any go between. Hazrat Sulaiman bin Sahim Rah says: ‘I once saw the Rasool of Allah in my dream and inquired of him: “O Messenger of Allah, are you aware of when people came before your grave to recite Durood (salawaat) on you?” Rasulullah Sal’am replied: “Yes, I am quite aware of it and I reply to their greetings.” (Ithaaf)
