Dalailul Khayraat
« on: February 22, 2017, 02:54:28 AM »
Assalaamu 'alaykum warahmatullaah
Respected Ulalma & Brothers/Sisters who may have queried this elsewhere.

There was a topic on it on SF but I cannot recall if my question was discussed..
My question is: Is it a bid'ah to recite it?

I realise that there is nothing better than the durood from hadith but if someone was to recite it, would it be a bid'ah?

وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته

These are the only sunniforum threads I found regarding the book Dalāʾil al-Khayrāt:

However, Mawlānā Ashraf ʿAlī Thānwī (رحمة الله عليه) has recommended its recitation (albeit cautioning from the statements attributed to Rasūlullāh صلى الله عليه وسلم therein). See here:

jazaakallaahu khayraa.
Didn't find much to say whether its actually a bid'at or not on the SF threads but the ashrafiyah post was good.

Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullah

Regarding the bid'a issue I think the best course of action for us is to find out from Ulama the definition of bid'a. There must be some definition or some conditions that make an act a bid'a...we must find out. I think doing so will give us some peace of mind with our day to day practices and also give us some filter to use for actions and deeds we might intend to carry out.

Regarding the Dalail ul Khairat itself, I asked THE Hanafi Deobandi Mufti Saeed Ahmed Paalanpuri db "Is it sahih to read the Dalail ul Khairat?" And he said, "Yes it is sahih to read it." I have the Q/A recorded from July 1st 2016. Coincidentally he was giving a jummah khutbah that day on bid'a.

This strategy might be of use:

(1) Aim to read as many completions of the famous masnun 40 durood as one can everyday. Even 1 reading a day is great. We are talking about salaat alan Nabi salallaho alayhi wa sallam, we cannot comprehend how great each each durood is. I think the most busiest person can do 1 reading a day. A good website to use is 40durood.com

(2) Aim daily to read only the daily chapter from the Dalail ul Khairat.

The above strategy resolves any sort of dilemma between masun vs dalail that one might have.

If for whatever reason one is not comfortable with reading the Dalail ul Khairat it is no problem at all, as accepted the Dalail ul Khairat is in the line of durood, durood is not limited to the Dalail ul Khairat. If only wanting to read masnun durood - another option is to maybe instead read Durood Ibrahim (the durood we read in our 5x salaah) as many times a day, hundreds, thousands if possible, may Allah swt make it easy on all of us. Ulama have said Durood e Ibrahim is the most afdhal durood.

If on twitter follow #DailyDuroodGoals - If we are serious about daily durood reading then we have to set daily/weekly/monthly goals for it. Going about it haphazardly really hasnt proven to work for anyone. Doing something today, nothing the rest of the week, then some more next week - this type of work isnt isteyqamat.

For encouragement on durood (in general):

Whether it is the Dalail ul Khairat or masnun durood or any ghair-masnun durood (with approved wording), let us make our mind up that we need some quota of durood e shareef daily. Ulama have written that durood e shareef reading has incredible benefits to our deen and our worldly life, our needs for both deen and dunya.

I conclude with a statement Moulana Thanvi ra has regarding Durood e Shareef (in general) in the introduction of his famous seerat work Nashrut Teeb:

Trying to do a daily live reading of 40 masnun durood e shareef on mixlr.com/lovedurood.

Listeners are encouraged to join along reading each durood individually and if they cant read then to at least say "ameen" after each durood as each durood is a dua as well.

Unfortunately dont have a set schedule right now so the timings are happening haphazard. Insha'Allah this will be corrected soon.

I announce the reading at least one hour before on twitter at twitter.com/lovedurood.

InshaAllah through Ramadhan 1 reading of the 40 masnun salawaat will be after sahoor Chicago time (320am for now), inshaAllah.

Today read a hadith out of Fazail e Salaat alan Nabi salallaho alayhi wa sallam (Virtues of salaat alan Nabi salallaho alayhi wa sallam) by Shaikhul Hadith Moulana Zakariyya ra on the warnings for neglecting salaat wa salaam/durood:

On the authority of Kaab ibn Ujrah (May Allah be pleased with him) it is related that the Holy Prophet salallaho alayhi wa sallam said,

“Come near to the mimbar”. And we came near the mimbar. When He salallaho alayhi wa sallam climbed the first step of the mimbar, He salallaho alayhi wa sallam said “Ameen”, When He salallaho alayhi wa sallam ascended the second step, He salallaho alayhi wa sallam said “Ameen”, When He salallaho alayhi wa sallam climbed the third step, He salallaho alayhi wa sallam said “Ameen” When He salallaho alayhi wa sallam came down, We said “O Messenger of Allah salallaho alayhi wa sallam, we have heard from you today something which we never heard before” He salallaho alayhi wa sallam said When I climbed the first step, the angel Jibraeel (as) appeared before me and said,

“Destruction to him who found the blessed month of Ramadhan and let it pass by without gaining forgiveness”

upon that I said ‘Ameen’. When I climbed the second step, he said,

“Destruction to him before whom thy name is taken and then he does not make Dua for Allah’s blessing on me (by saying salaat wa salaam/durood, "sallahu alayhi wa sallam).”

I replied ‘Ameen’. When I climbed the third step, he said

“Destruction unto him in whose lifetime both his parents or either one of them reaches old age, and (through failure to serve them) he is not allowed to enter Jannah”.

I said ‘Ameen’.

(Haakim, Baihaqi)
------------------------

In commentary Shaikhul Hadith Moulana Zakariyya ra expressed how severe a curse must be that is coming from an angel who is so close to Allah swt and then for the Holy Prophet salallaho alayhi wa sallam to seal it with an "ameen" - a very grave consequence for neglecting durood (and for neglect on the other 2 actions as well).

-- my note --
If you observe in our gatherings and events when the blessed name is mentioned hardly anyone listening moves their lips to send salawaat. Take this message to heart, be cognizant about it, and tell our family and friends so they know too.

MuftI Ashiq ilahi Bulandshehri ra has written on page 70 of his book Fazail e Salaat wa Salaam regarding Dalail ul Khairat that if one can muster the courage to read 1 manzil a day because the Dalail is a treasure of amazing durood.

Alhamdulillah i read this passage in today's am live 40 masnun durood reading. I am doing a live 40 masnun durood reading every morning after Fajr salaah (4am Chicago time) at mixlr.com/LoveDurood.  First reading the 40 durood and then usually reading something from books of Akabir elders either fazail or seerat.

 InshaAllah this will continue through Ramadan as Allah makes it easy. Join and read along or say "ameen" after each durood. Tell your family and friends to join along in the reading. Mufti Ashiq ilahi ra has greatly stressed how beneficial this deed is for our Deen and dunya.

See also #DailyDuroodGoals, make a goal and strive to get it, AT LEAST through Ramadhan. InshaAllah. Allah accept and make easy. Ameen.

Read this morning Zikrun Nabi salallaho alayhi wa sallam, a seerah work of Hazrat Jalalabadi Moulana Maseehullah Khan Sherwani ra (khalifah of Hakeem ul Ummah ra).

The book covers the Jamaal (physical beauty), Kamaal (perfections), and Nawal (giving generosity) of the Holy Prophet salallaho alayhi wa sallam.

From the Nawal chapter:

The keys to the treasures of the earth were given to the Holy Prophet salallaho alayhi wa sallam.

In his lifetime much of the Arabian peninsula was in the fold of Islam, a lot of wealth was coming in.

But despite all of this, the Holy Prophet salallaho alayhi wa sallam did not take a single dinar for himself aside to fulfill needs.

And his way was that even if the entire Uhud mountain be turned to gold and given to him he would not like that a single dinar be left with him by dawn aside from fulfilling need (paraphrase).

But rather he used the wealth to help the needy and those less fortunate.

-- this was not in the book --

An angel had once offered to turn a mountain into gold for the Holy Prophet salallaho alayhi wa sallam but he refused and said he wants to eat once and go hungry once so he can do shukr and sabr.

Recall that while this is going on, at the same time, the house of the Nabi salallaho alayhi wa sallam is going months without the stove being lit.

Despite his need for it he did not take the mountains of gold and keys to treasures of the world that were given to him.

Qasidah Burdah - Mountains of gold couldn't temp him despite his need, his need only further increased his virtue.

Today we feel a little discomfort and go fatwa shopping - we are weak people and so we should ask Allah for easiness in our life.

I pray Allah swt send countless salutations of salaat and salaam upon Sayyidina Muhammad who was at the height of generosity, asceticism, selflessness, courage and resolve, and could not be tempted even with mountains of gold.

Contrary to popular belief it is not that the Holy Prophet salallaho alayhi wa sallam didnt have, its not his home had no means for food and had extreme poverty - but the fact is that he had and he actually had more than anyone as he was granted the keys to the treasures of the world, but he chose to give all his wealth out to those in need and kept for himself only as little to fulfill need. This was his selflessness and his generosity. Then on the other hand he chose to adopt sabr, this was his courage and bravery and asceticism.

Read page 118 the definition of Zuhd asceticism:

Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuhu

Before asking my question I would like to tell something about our respected brother  Fusus Al Hikam/LoveDurood/Riaz (not using 'Shaykh' as he will argue against it). To speak the truth without any intention of praising him, I must say that he is the man who instilled the immense importance of reciting Durood in my mind. Jazakallaahu khayra.

Now my question- I have the pdf of 40 masnoon durood collection in my phone. I was thinking about printing it, but the file isn't convenient to do so. Is there any simple and print friendly version available?

Waalaikummussalaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu:

Yes, I must echo the same sentiments. May Allah Ta'aala protect him, accept it from him, and grant him the best of both worlds. Ameen.

I had the same issue so I went searching and found this: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I printed it in book format and then stapled the middle.

Try the print at 40durood.com they might have print out available.

Or check local islamic bookstore, they usually carry.

Islamic Dawah Academy can send you out multiple copies and so you can have for yourself and gift to others. I received many from them and gifted some out (even to my shaikh). They are pocket size.

We must turn our efforts up. I must turn MY efforts up.

Learning seerah and sunnah, primarily, siffaat e nabvi (prophetic qualities) salallaho alayhi wa sallam, practicing and spreading. Durood basically is the catalyst, fuel, source of ruhani strength, to keep it all going.

The above are all under huqooq of Rasulullah salallaho alayhi wa sallam. To honor him, to send abundant salawat on him, to obey him, to defend his honor etc. This all has been written by scholars. See Kitab Shifa of Qadhi Iyad ra. The entire Ummah is united on this.

Of sins, how great is the sin of not fulfilling huqooq of the Holy Prophet salallaho alayhi wa sallam?
We know what the consequench is if don't pay back a dollar we owe to someone, imagine consequence of not even being aware of haq of Nabi salallaho alayhi wa sallam.

Something we must make tawbah of, seriously. 1 haq of Rasulullah salallaho alayhi wa sallam on one side of the scale, entire Ummah on the other side of the scale, his haq far outweighs.

It is a serious matter, not a game. I am doing nothing in this regard and must get my efforts going.

Imam Rabbani ra wrote in his Maktubaat "with your full determination and devotion work to bring even 1 sunnah alive."

Keywords: Determination and devotion.

I wish that every household can do weekly seerah programs and durood reading just with family. Get a book by scholar and read as a family. Put out some beads and everyone read, then read on the qualities and maybe some bio of Nabi salallaho alayhi wa sallam.

It's the call of the time. May Allah swt accept and make it easy.
