Hadith or Benefit

As the entire world population is benefited through the Holy Prophet (SAW) that is why Allah Almighty, says in Holy Quran: “Indeed, Allah confers blessing upon the Prophet, and His angels [ask Him to do so]. O you who have believed, ask [Allah to confer] blessing upon him and ask [Allah to grant him] peace.” (Quran, 33: 56) Ka’ab bin Ujrah (R.A) narrates that once it was enquired from the Prophet (S.A.W) as to how blessings should be sent to him. The Prophet (S.A.W) replied that “the blessings be said in the manner, that is of Durood-e-Ibrahimi”. Abu Hurairah (R.A) reported the Messenger of Allah (S.A.W) saying: “He who invokes one blessing upon me, Allah will shower ten blessings upon him”. Ibn Mas’ood (R.A) reported that the Messenger of Allah (S.A.W) said: “The nearest one to me on the Day of Resurrection will be the one who invoked the most blessings upon me.” [Mishkat]
