Increasing recital of durud sharif in the month of Rabi'-ul-Awwal

Q: What is the virtue of increasing recital of durud sharif in the month of Rabi'-ul-Awwal as propagated by some who hold "Durud Challenge" in this month?


A: Durood should be recited all the time. There is no extra virtue that is reported in the hadith for reciting extra durood in the month of Rabi ul Awwal.

And Allah Ta'ala knows best.
