An Interesting Incident Regarding Durood

Muhammad bin Maalik said that once we were sitting in the Hadith lesson of Shaikh Abu Bakr bin Mujaahid al Muqri in Baghdad.

Suddenly, an old man in a pitiable condition came. His turban, shirt and scarf were completely worn. The Shaikh stood up out of honour for him and seated the old man on his place. He enquired of his and his children’s health and condition. He (the old man) said that a child was born in my home tonight. My house folk asked me to get ghee and honey. I did not have anything with which to buy it.Shaykh Abu Bakr said that my heart became grieved. During this time I fell asleep. I saw Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in a dream. Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked,” How is it that you are grieved? Go to the minister of the King Ali bin ‘Isa and give my Salaam to him. As a sign tell him that is it your (the ministers) practice that he does not sleep on the night of Jumu’ah until he does not recite durood 1000 times.However this time he recited 700 times and the messenger of the king came to call you.

You went with him. You then returned and completed the rest. Tell the minister to give that person 100 dinars because a child was born in his home and he could fulfill his needs.

Conseaquently, Shaykh Abu Bakr bin Mujaahid went with the father of the child to the house of the minister. He said that Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has sent this person to you. Hearing this, the minister stood up and seated him on his place. He heard the incident from the Shaykh. The minister became very happy and told the attendant to take out the bag of dinars and bring it to him. He weighed 100 dinars and gave it to the father of the child. He weighed a second time and began to give it to Shaykh Abu Bakr. He flatly refused to accept it. The minister told him to accept it in lieu of telling him a true account and for giving glad tidings. This was because this was a secret between myself and Allah Azza Wa Jal, you are the messenger of Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and you have given glad tidings from him. Weigh another 100 dinars and give it to me for Muhammad bin Maalik. He has become tired by coming here. Similarly, he increased 100 upon 100 until he reached 1000. That person said that I cannot take more than what Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam ordered I.e.100 dinaars
