Increasing the Recitation of Durood on a Jumuah

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال : قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : أكثروا الصلاة علي في الليلة الزهراء واليوم الأغر فإن صلاتكم تعرض علي

(المعجم الاوسط للطبراني وسنده ضعيف لكن يتقوى بشواهده كما في القول البديع صـ ٣٢٥)

Hazrat Abu Hurairah (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) reports that Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) said, “Increase the recitation of Durood upon me on the night of Jumuah and the day of Jumuah, as your Durood is presented to me.”

Longing for the Companionship of Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)

Once, a Sahaabi (radhiyallahu ‘anhu) came to Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) and said, “O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), you are dearer to me than my life, my wealth and my family. While I am within the confines of my home, I begin to think of you and become restless. My restlessness does not end until my sight falls upon you. O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), death is inevitable. After death, you will be in a high, exalted position as you are a Nabi and Rasul of Allah Ta‘ala, whilst I will be distant from you. O Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), perhaps I may not be blessed with the honour of seeing you. Whenever I think of this separation between us which will be caused through death, I become extremely saddened and grieved.”

Hazrat Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) observed silence over this until Hazrat Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) descended with the following verse of the Quraan Majeed:

وَمَن يُطِعِ اللّٰهَ وَالرَّسُولَ فَاُولٰٓئِكَ مَعَ الَّذِينَ اَنْعَمَ اللّٰهُ عَلَيْهِم مِّنَ النَّبِيِّـنَ وَالصِّدِّيقِينَ وَالشُّهَدَآءِ وَالصّٰلِحِينَ ۚ  وَحَسُنَ أُولَٰٓئِكَ رَفِيقًا (سورة النساء: ٦٩)

All those who obey Allah Ta‘ala and the Messenger are in the company of those on whom is the Grace of Allah Ta‘ala; the Ambiyaa (‘alaihimus salaam), the Siddeeqeen, the martyrs, and the righteous. (Al-Mu’jamul Awsat #477)
