Many of the Durūds in this book have been shown to these Awliyā through Ilhām (inspiration) or have been granted acceptance and approval in the court of Rasulullāh Sallallāhu alayhi wasallam and some Durūds have been taught by Rasulullāh Sallallāhu alayhi wasallam to these Awliyā for increasing their nisbat (spiritual connection) with him, sallallahu alayhi wasallam, or as a solution to various problems, difficulties and hardships they encountered in their lives. These pious servants of Allāh, after experiencing the barakah and benefits of these duruds began teaching them to their followers who also expereinced the barakah of these duruds in their lives.
Regular recital of these Durūds results in the reciter attaining a special love and bond with Rasulullāh sallallāhu alayhi wasallam and is also a means of removing poverty, difficulties, hardships, sicknesses, problems, worries and grief. Apart from this, one should recite abundantly those Durūds that apply to ones situation or problem. So the specified Durūd can be read : 11 times after each salāh or whenever one can, followed by duā or 60 or 100 times a day or even continuously throughout the day. Keep in mind the meaning of the Durūd and also keep in mind your need or problem when reading the Durūd. And the best of aims and intentions is to attain the love, nisbat and the closeness of Rasulullāh sallallāhu alayhi wasallam, to see him in ones dreams and to follow his mubārak sunnah.
It is advisable to recite this collection daily together with the 40 Durūd of Hadhrat Shaykh al-Hadith Moulānā Muhammad Zakariyya Rahimahullāh. The reader should note that the words Durūd and Salāt/Salawāt in this book are different words but have the same meaning.
Most of the Duruds in this book were taken from Dharī‘atul Wusūl ilā Janābir Rasūl (Nearest approach to the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم ) by Allāmah Mukhdūm Muhammad Sindhi, the original of which was in Fārsi and which was later translated into Urdu by Hadrat Moulana Yusuf Ludhianvi, Rahimahullah alayhima.
