Human spirit today is depressed everywhere and mankind has come to the edge of destruction, decay and devastation. Everyone is engulfed in untold personal and political miseries and tragedies of a very great magnitude. Mental, physical and spiritual troubles, pain, injustice, war, natural disasters and frustrations have broken the back of a human being. All this can evaporate with the recitation of prayers and peace (known as Durood Shareef or Salawât and Salâm) upon Sayyiduna Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who has clearly proclaimed that Durood Shareef is the cure for all diseases or problems and that if any one comes across a calamity he should recite Durood Shareef in the maximum number. Allah Ta’ala has promised that if anyone recites Durood Shareef only once, He showers ten blessings on the reciter immediately.
Al-Bazzar reports in his Musnad that `Umayr ibn al-Ansari radi Allah anhu was cheerful when he heard the Prophet Sayyiduna Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say:
“Whoever of my nation invokes blessings upon me, sincerely from his heart, Allah Ta’ala sends ten blessings upon him.”
