The One Closest to Nabi sallallahu alaihi wasallam.
Rasulullah sallallahu alaihi wasallam said: “Indeed the people closest to me on the day of judgement will be those who recited the most Durood on me. (Sunan Tirmidhi #484)
Entry into Jannah Because of Abundant Durood
A person saw Abu Hafs Kaghazi (rahmatullahi alaihi) in a dream after his demise and enquired from him as to what had transpired? He replied: “Allah had mercy on me, forgave my sins and admitted me into paradise”. On asking him the reason for that, he answered: “When I appeared before Allah Ta’ala, the Angels were commanded to count my Durood as well as my sins. It turned out that my Durood outnumbered my sins. Hence my Lord commanded: “O Angels, let that be enough, let there be no further reckoning and take him into my Paradise”. (Fazail – us – Salaat alan Nabi sallallahu alaihi wasallam pg 155)
Lesson: Abundance of Durood assures safety and salvation both in this world as well as the next.
