One of my sister asked me about what to recite for certain problems. I composed a short message for her. I also want it to share it with you all. Please pray for my Shaykh, my parents and me.
My Shaykh, Syed Muhammad Mubarak Ali Gilani (Sajjada Nasheen Darbar-e-Aliya Qadriya Ahmad Hussainiya Afzaalia, Dargah-e-Hazrat Mehboob-e-Zaat wa Hazrat Mehboob-e-Khaas, Mundair Sharif Syedan) use to tell everyone who take bayt that recite Kalima-e-Tayyiba (with durood sharif at end) at least 100 times a day. if not 100 times once, divide it with 5 prayers.
Now, this one Tasbeeh teaches 3 things: (a) 5 times prayer, (b) Durood Sharif daily, and (c) Kalima-e-Tayyiba for stronger iman.
Other than this, whenever someone asks from him about what to recite as a Wazeefa, he says that there is no better Wazeefa than Durood Sharif. It is the best Wird and Wazeefa. The Durood he use to suggest is Durood-e-Khizri.
SAL ALLAHAU ALA HABIBIHI MUHAMMADIN-W WA AALIHI WASALLAM.
صلی اللہ علِی حبیبہ محمد وآلہ وسلم
So, I suggest you to recite Durood Sharif as much as you can. It’s better if you can also recite Kalima-e-Tayyiba at least 100 times a day. It’d be more better if you divide this number with your namaz. Recite at least 20 times Kalima-e-Tayyiba with each prayer.
Note: The Durood Sharif provided above is the Durood what we have listened from our elders. It is called Durood-e-Khizri. Some books in market also include wa Ashabihi (و اصحابہ) in it. We believe in Sahabah’s status and we also recite Duroods with Sahabah’s name but it is not in this Durood Sharif. The Durood Sharif with "wa Ashabahi" would also be a Durood Sharif but would not be a Durood-e-Khizri. So, try not to add wa Ashabihi in Durood-e-Khizri like in Durood-e-Ibrahimi. Same way, the word "wa Ashabihi" does not occur in Durood-e-Ghausia. And also do not cut the name of Sahabh where it is mentioned. Sahabah had a high status.
Always keep the above mentioned note in mind, at least for these three Duroods: (i) Durood-e-Ibrahimi, (ii) Durood-e-Khizri, and (iii) Durood-e-Ghausia.
