Durood on Fridays

Fatwaa ID: 822

It was narrated from Abu Darda’ that the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said:

“Send a great deal of blessing upon me on Fridays, for it is witnessed by the angels. No one sends blessing upon me but his blessing will be presented to me, until he finishes them.” A man said: “Even after death?” He said: “Even after death, for Allah has forbidden the earth to consume the bodies of the Prophets, so the Prophet of Allah is alive and receives provision.’” (Ibn Majah)

Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu Mufti sahab,

Someone asked:

In the above hadith it says that our durood are presented to the Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم every Friday, whereas in another Hadith (can’t find reference) mentions that durood is presented to Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم every day.

How do we reconcile both Hadith?

In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

Salawaat are presented to Nabi ﷺ directly on Fridays whereby he hears them. On other days, it is presented through angels and they present the names to him ﷺ. One should send salawaat upon Nabi ﷺ abundantly every single day, and even more on Fridays.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
