Philosophy Behind Durood Shareef -Salutation to the Holy Prophet Muhammad [Sallal Laahu Alaieh Wa Sallam]

Philosophy Behind Durood Shareef 

  Every Muslim knows that he has been provided with the treasure of "Ieeman" and "Irfaan" [Islamic faith and knowledge, wisdom]. The mankind was groping about in the dark of ignorance and steeped in barbarism.

 The Holy Prophet enlightened him with knowledge and equipped with humanely qualities i.e. good conduct and beautiful manners. This favor and kindness of his demand of us to be beholden to him, to love him and keep praying to Allaah Almighty for his exaltation. 

This objective can be easily achieved by reciting 
 "Durood Shareef [invoking Allaah's blessings on the Holy Prophet] which can be recited in all conditions and all time. The reciter of Durood Shareef actually implores Allaah Almighty: ".

 O' Allaah! I am unable to thank Your beloved Prophet for his great favors to me. You may send Your infinite blessings on him on my behalf in this world and the world hereafter and grant him Your "Taqarrub" (nearness, proximity) more than all other prominent ones.

The believer who recites Durood Shareef in fact humbles himself before Allaah, the Beneficent, that he is unable to send "Salaat" (benedictions, blessings) on His Beloved Prophet Muhammad, may Allaah's choicest blessings & peace be upon him... befitting his dignity and that He (Allaah) may send "Salaat" on the Holy Prophet on his behalf and also bless him always..
