Durood Tunjeena

Q: Is the Durood Tunjeena appropriate to recite or is it shirk? Some people say that it is a means of cure and solution for many problems etc.


A: Reciting this durood is not shirk. It is permissible for one to recite this durood provided one does not regard it to be a Sunnah. Reciting any durood is rewarding, even though it is not reported in the Hadith, on condition that the words of the durood are correct. There is no doubt in the benefit people have received through reciting this durood. It should however be borne in mind that these benefits are not proven through the Hadith, instead they are proven through the experience of individuals.

N.B. Though it is permissible to recite this durood, it is more virtuous and rewarding for one to recite the durood that is reported in the Ahaadith.

And Allah Ta'ala knows best.

إِنَّ اللَّـهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ ۚ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا (احزاب:56)

عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قال من صلى علي عشرا صلى الله عليه مئة ومن صلى علي مئة صلى الله عليه ألفا ومن زاد صبابة وشوقا كنت له شفيعا وشهيدا يوم القيامة أخرجه أبو موسى المديني بسند قال الشيخ مغلطاي لا بأس به (القول البديع ص236)
