What does Durood/Durud Shareef Means?

 Q 2: What does "Durood Shareef mean?


Answer: "Durood Shareef is an especial honour which Allaah Almighty has bestowed upon the Holy Prophet,

Muhammadسیّدنا محمد صلّی اللہ علیہ وسلم  

(may Allaah's choicest blessings & peace be upon him)

The religious scholars define 

الھمّ صلّی علیٰ محمد

“Al-Laa-humma Sallay 'Alaa Muhammad”

as: O'Allaah! Grant dignity to Muhammad by making his religion overwhelming, his preaching, teachings dominant and his Shari'ah ever-thriving and ever-lasting in this world and by accepting his primacy over all (the past and future communities, nations), exalting him over Apostles, Messengers, Prophets, Angels and all creatures and by making him stand on "Maqaam-e-Mahmood" (a praise-worthy station reserved only for the Holy Prophet) in the next world.
