Reciting Durud Sharif After Azaan

Recommended Posts

It is narrated then when you hear the Azaan, then repeat the words. After this, recite Durud and ask waseela for Rasulullaah (S.A.W) which is a great stage in Jannah and is special for Rasulullaah (S.A.W) and he will make intercession from there. So, whoever asked waseela for Rasulullaah (S.A.W), the intercession of Rasulullaah (S.A.W) for him is a certainty. The Du'aa after Azaan has been narrated through various chains (with some additional words in some). However, generally, the following Du'aa is recited,


اللهم رب هذه الدعوة التامة والصلوة القائمة آت محمد الوسيله والفضيلة وابعثه مقاما محمود الذي وعدته إنك لا تخلف الميعاد

O Allaah, Rabb of this complete call and of this established Salaat, bless Muhammad with waseela and virtue and take Muhammad (S.A.W) to the place of Maqaam e Mahmud - which You have promised. Indeed You do not go against Your promise.


For this reason, intercession will become compulsory. It is narrated then when the mu'ezzin says ( حى على الصلاة ), then the listener should say ( لا حول ولا قوة إلا بالله ). And when he says (حى على الفلاح ), the listener should say ( اللهم اجعلنا من اهل الفلاح).


The meaning of waseela is also said to be closeness and proximity. From here it is learnt that it is permissible to make Rasulullaah (S.A.W) a waseela to go to Allaah I, i.e. it is love for Allaah I.


There is difference of opinion with regards to the meaning of Maqaam e Mahmud. One view is that Rasulullaah (S.A.W) has to give witness upon his Ummah. One view is that he will be granted the flag of hamd on the Day of Qiyaamah. Another view is that Allaah I will place Rasulullaah (S.A.W) on the Divine Throne. It is also said that he will be made to sit on the Kursi. One view states that it is intercession. The author þ says that there is no great difference between these different views because all of them will happen at the same time.

Reciting Durud Sharif after Azaan



There are a few types of intercession:


1.     Intercession to save people from the difficulties of the plains of reckoning.

2.     Intercession to save those people about whom judgement has been made that they will go to Jahannam.

3.     Intercession for those who have already been put into Jahannam.

4.     Intercession for those people who have been stopped from entry into Jannah due to sins, that they should be entered into Jannah.

5.     Intercession to elevate the ranks of those in Jannah.

6.     Intercession for the people who are buried in Madinah.

7.     Intercession for those who visited the grave of Rasulullaah (S.A.W).

8.     Intercession to open the doors of Jannah.

9.     Intercession for those who replied to the Azaan.

10.  Intercession to lessen the punishment for those disbelievers who served Rasulullaah (S.A.W).

11.  Intercession for the special friends of Allaah I.


Therefore, O reader, go ahead in sending Durud upon Rasulullaah (S.A.W).


The intercession of Rasulullaah (S.A.W) is for the general believers. So, what importance does the intercession of Rasulullaah (S.A.W) hold for the people of Madinah who are patient when struck by a calamity? The answer to this is that the intercession for the general believers is for the sinners among them. The intercession for the people of Madinah is for being patient upon the calamities and difficulties like the battles, especially the battle of Uhud. It is also said that Rasulullaah (S.A.W) will be a witness for the people of Madinah and then intercede for the rest of the people. Witnessing will be for increase in stages and out of honour and grace. Intercession will be special for the sinners. For some people there will be both, e.g. to be in the shade of the divine throne, to be on pulpits of light etc.
