“O Allah! May Thy grace, peace and blessings rest on Muhammad, our Master, who opens that which is closed, and closes that which is preceded, who helps truth with truth, and who guided mankind to Thy straight path. May blessings of Allah be on him and his Family and Companions as according to his exalted position befitting his merit and his high rank”.
Actually, this Durood Shareef is in the Holy Quran; but then it was kept a secret. Hadrat Abu-Bakr Siddique (radi Allahu anhu), the first Caliph of Islam, used to recite it daily without fail. Some narrations say that it is because of this Durood that he was awarded the title of “Siddique” which means “Testifier to the Truth”.
Hadrat Abul Muqqarab (alaihir rahmah) says that a man’s total sins will be washed away if he recites Durood-e-Fath for forty days continuously.
Hadrat Shaikh Muhammad Bakari (alaihir rahmah) says that the recitation of Durood-e-Fath once a day relieves the reciter from the Fire of Hell.
Hadrat Syed Ahmed Hillam (alaihir rahmah) says that Durood-e- Fath was the most favourite routine of Hadrat Ghaus-e-Azam, Sheikh Abdul Qaadir Jilani (alaihir rahmah) of Baghdad Shareef.
The great Saints also say that Durood-e-Fath is actual and real light.
Hadrat Sheikh Yusuf Bin Ismail (alaihir rahmah) says that this Durood Shareef is the greatest mystery of Allah. It brings 100% success and happiness to the reciter. In fact, this Durood Shareef brings prosperity and favour and solves all the complex problems by the Grace of Allah. When a man recites this Durood Shareef, the Angels of Allah surround him, mercy covers him and peace starts descending on him.
