Durood in group

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 56:

Allah and His Angels send blessings on the Prophet: O ye that believe! Send ye blessings on him and salute him with all respect.


When the above aayah of the Quran was revealed the companions asked the Prophet (saws) how should the believers send salutations to him (saws).


Abu Mas'ud Al-Ansari reported the following account from Bashir ibn Sa'd: "I asked Prophet (saws) 'O Messenger of Allah (saws), Allah has commanded us to invoke blessings upon you. How should we do it?' The Messenger of Allah (saws) remained silent until we wished we had not asked him. Then he told us to say,

'Allahumma salli 'ala muhammadin wa 'ala ali muhammadin kama sallayta 'ala ali ibrahima, wa barik 'ala muhammadin wa 'ala ali muhammadin kama barakta 'ala ibrahima wa 'ala ali ibrahima; fil 'alamin, innaka hammidum majeed. {Narrated by Muslim.}

(O Allah, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as You blessed the family of Ibrahim, and give baraka to Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as You gave baraka to Ibrahim and the family of Ibrahim. In all the worlds, You are worthy of Praise and Glorious)


Regardless of the reason or intent of ones gathering, if the name of the Noble Prophet Mohamed (saws) is mentioned in the gathering, it is wajib and obligatory for all the believers present to recite the durood or send salutations upon the Noble Prophet (saws).


Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (saws) said, "May the nose of the person in whose presence I am mentioned be covered with dirt if he does not invoke blessings upon me!"

Related by Tirmidhi.


In a report narrated by Abu Dharr the Prophet (saws) said, 'The most miserly among people is the one who fails to invoke blessings upon me when my name is mentioned in his or her presence'.


There is absolutely no harm if the believers are gathered for any reason and wish to recite the salutations to the Prophet (saws) before discussing the matter they have gathered for.


But there is absolutely no mention in the traditions of the noble companions that they would gather for no other reason but to constantly recite the salutation upon their beloved leader and Prophet (saws), during his (saws) lifetime or even after his (saws) death.


There is absolutely no harm if the believers gathered recite the salutation together or alone upon the mention of the name of the Noble Prophet (saws) in their gatherings, but to gather especially for no other reason but to constantly recite the salutation, assuming such a gathering is meritorious and worthy of earning rewards from Allah Subhanah would indeed constitute on the borders of bida.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
