I am young unmarried woman.Recently I have started reciting Darood Sharif daily and found it very pleasant and peaceful for heart.I have got developed great desire these days to perform Haj/umrah.I have started saving money from my monthly budget for performance of Umrah first.My problem is that I am unmarried.My mehrams are my father and brothers.I can't go alone for this task.I requested them to accompany me.My younger brother has committed that he will go with me after Eid ul Azha.But his program seems uncertain and doubtful which makes me very restless and disturbing that if he couldn't go then how would I manage all this.I want to go to Allah's home and want to pray for forgiveness of my sins and pray for all my needs and problems.I want to recite Salat o Salam on the Holy Prophet(P.B.U.H) at His Roza Mubarak(InshaAllah) where He himself answers the Darood as I studied in the Islamic books.When I find people saying that only those go there who are the closed ones of God and very fortunate then I feel very frustrated.Plz pray for me that May Allah invite me at His home and shower His blessings upon me.Also tell me the Duas/Surahs/Wird for the performance of Umrah/Haj soon and for creation and completion of arrangements(Asbab) of Pilgrimage.Plz pray and guide.
In the name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful.
There are numerous ahadith, which talk about the virtues and significance of reciting duruud on our beloved Prophet Muhammad Mustafa Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam.
Saaiduna Abdullah Ibn Masud Radiallahu Anhu narrates that the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam has said "The person who asked blessings on me abundantly, will be the nearest to me on the Day of Judgement" (Sunan Tirmizi)
Saaiduna Anas Radiallahu Anhu narrates that the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalm has said, “Allah bestows ten measures of mercy to the one who recites Durood on me; ten of his sins are forgiven; he is elevated ten ranks and ten virtuous deeds are written in his Book of Deeds” (Sunan Nasai & Musnad Ahmad)
Saaiduna Abu Darda Radiallahu Anhu narrates that the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam said, "My Shafaa'at (intercession) will be for him who recites daily ten times Durood on me during the morning and ten times during the evening." (Tabaani)
Saaiduna Abu Hurairah Radiallahu Anhu narrates that the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam has said, "A gathering devoid of the mention of Allah Ta'ala and Durood for Rasulullah will be the cause of regret on the Day of Judgement. If Allah wants he can punish them or forgive them." (Sunan Abi Dawud & Musnad Ahmad)
Saaiduna Ali Radiallahu Anhu narrates that Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam said: "A great miser is he in whose presence I am mentioned and he refrains from reciting Durood on me." (Sunan Tirmizi, Sunan Nasai, & Imam Bukhari in his Tarikh)
My advice will be to continue reciting the duruud shareef and Insha Allah that will bring about the love of the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam in your heart. Also try performing Salatul Hajah. Insha Allah will fulfil your desire to perform Hajj or Umrah.
It is narrated by Saaiduna Abdullah Bin Abi Awfah Radiallahu Anhu that the Prophet of Allah said; “Whoever, has any need from Allah or anyone of his children, let him make Wudhu and let him make it well, then after two rakaats of Salah, praise Allah and invoice benedictions upon the Prophet of Allah Sallallahu Alahi Wasalam then say;
LA ILAHA ILAL-LA HUL HALIMUL KARIM. SUBHANAL-LAHIL RABBIL ARSHIL AZIM. ALHAMDULILAHI RABBIL ALAMIN. AS ALUKA MUJIBATI RAHMATIK. WA AZAIMA MAGFIRATIK, WAL GANIMATA MIN KULI BIRR, WAS-SALAMATA MIN KULI ITHM LA TADA LI DHAMBAN ILLA GHAFARTAH WA LA HAMMAN ILLA FARAJTAH, WALA HAJATAN HIYA LAKA RIDAN ILLA QADIYTAHA YA ARHAMAR RAHIMIN.
There is no god but Allah, the most for bearing, most bountiful, glory be to Allah, Lord of the magnificent throne. All praises is for Allah, Lord of the Universe. I beg you for all that causes your mercy, determines Your forgiveness, a wealth of every form of piety and security from every sin. O’Allah, do not leave any sin of mine but that you have forgiven it, nor any worry but that you have uplifted it, nor any need which conforms with your pleasure but that you have fulfilled it, O most merciful of all that show mercy! (Sunan Timizi p.108 v.1)
Only Allah Knows Best
