Salawaat to remove difficulty and worry

Fatwaa ID: 289

Assalamu alaykum Mufti Sahib. It’s been said a person who has difficulty/hardship in life, they should read Salawat (known as durood tunjina) 1000 times, is there basis on this? Can we say it’s a highly experienced of our aslaaf that can be implemented with the intention for Allah to remove the difficulty and hardship?
Jazakumullah Khayran
barakAllahu feekã

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

It is established in the Ahaadith that abundance of salawaat removes worry and difficulty. The Ahaadith have kept the words of the salawaat and the count general. Reciting any salawaat will be sufficient. Likewise, there is no set number. The more one sends salawaat, the better for him.
As for the salawaat you refer to and the count, that is not established from the Ahaadith. It may be a suggestion from some of the mashaayikh. It is permissible to act upon it without regarding it to be established or from the sunnah.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.

سنن الترمذي: عن الطفيل بن أبي بن كعب عن أبيه قال كان رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم إذا ذهب ثلثا الليل قام فقال يا أيها الناس اذكروا الله اذكروا الله، جاءت الراجفة تتبعها الرادفة، جاء الموت بما فيه، جاء الموت بما فيه، قال أبي: قلت، يا رسول الله إني أكثر الصلاة عليك فكم أجعل لك من صلاتي، فقال ما شئت، قال: قلت الربع، قال: ما شئت، فإن زدت فهو خير لك، قلت: النصف، قال: ما شئت فإن زدت فهو خير لك، قال: قلت فالثلثين، قال: ما شئت فإن زدت فهو خير لك، قلت أجعل لك صلاتي كلها، قال إذن تكفى همك ويغفر ذنبك، قال أبو عيسى: هذا حديث حسن صحيح.

مسند أحمد: قال رجل: يا رسول الله أرأيت إن جعلت صلواتي كلها عليك؟ قال: إذا يكفيك الله تبارك وتعالى ما أهمك من دنياك وآخرتك. قال المنذري: وإسناد هذه جيد. انتهى
