Darood Sharif in English
One of the greatest acts of worship in Islam is to send blessings upon the Prophet Muhammad (SAWS), i.e. reciting Darood Sharif. The more Darood Sharif you recite, the higher rewards you gain in this life, and the hereafter, Insha’Allah.
It is highly recommended to recite Darood (sending blessings upon our beloved prophet) whenever a Muslim reads, speaks or hears the name of the beloved Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam).
The virtue of reading Darood Sharif is very valuable in our life. The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said that the person who recites the Darood Sharif is the most suitable person to be my companion on the Day of Resurrection. Whoever recites Darood 40 times every Friday, may Allah forgive his sins for 40 years.
