It should be remembered that it is

compulsory to write or recite Durud when writing the name of Rasulullaah صلى

الله عليه وسلم,

or when saying his name. This is greatly

emphasized in the Hadith and there are grave warnings for the person who goes

against this teaching.

Also, it is necessary to write the entire

Durud after the name of Rasulullaah صلى الله عليه وسلم. The command of Durud

will not be fulfilled by writing (saw) or any other shortened form,

nor will a person get reward.
