SHAYKH MUHAMMAD MOHSIN MUNAWAR YOUSAFI EXPLAINS A BEAUTIFUL INCIDENT THAT HOW BLESSED DAROOD SOLVES THE PROBLEM OF A MAN
Blessed Darood is the solution to every problem
Once a man taken loan of three thousand dinars from his friend and settled the date to return the loan. It always happens as Allah Almighty ordains. That person’s business terminated and he became bankrupt. The creditor who had given the loan came for his money on the decided date. The debtor sought excuse saying that he had nothing to pay the debt. The creditor went to the Islamic court and filed a case against the man. The magistrate sent notice for the debtor. After hearing the case, magistrate gave the decision and allowed one month’s time to make arrangements to return the loan. The debtor came out of the court and started thinking about the returning of the loan.
It is probable that he might have read or heard from the scholars that the Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings be Upon Him) had stated, ‘Any person who is in some problem or difficulty should recite Blessed Darood plentifully on Me because Blessed Darood takes away the problems and difficulties and increases the earnings.’
In short, the man started reciting Blessed Darood with great humbleness and modesty while sitting in the corner of the Mosque. When twenty seven days passed, he had a dream one night; he heard a voice saying, ‘Oh servant! Don’t grieve, Allah Almighty is a Great Granter; you will be imparted. Go to Ali Bin Essa, the minister of state and ask him to give you three thousand dinars to pay the debt.’ When the man awoke he felt very relaxed and contented but at the same time he thought if the minister asked him to show some sign or proof to attain the money then he will not be able to provide it. Next night, when he fell asleep, he got fortunate; he had the vision of the Owner of both worlds, Blessings of both worlds, the great Intercessor beloved Prophet (Peace and Blessings be Upon Him) in dream. The Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings be Upon Him) also ordered him to go to Ali Bin Essa. When he woke up he was extremely happiness. The third night he had the same dream; the Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings be Upon Him) ordered him to go to Ali Bin Essa and tell him about the command. When he heard the order he mentioned humbly that he wanted some reason or sign that could be shown as a proof of the truth of the commandment. Hearing his statement, the Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings be Upon Him) appreciated it and stated that if the minister asked for any proof, he should tell him that the truth of it is that, he (the minister) recited blessed Darood five thousand (5,000) times after Fajr prayer (Salat) before he addresses anyone. This practice was not known to anyone except the Allah Almighty and the (noble Registrar angels of deeds) ‘kiramaan katibeen. After stating this, the Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings be Upon Him) left from his dream.
That man came out of the Mosque after the Fajr prayer (Salat). One month’s time was over and he went to the minister and told him the whole account. When the minister (Ali Bin Essa) asked for some sign or proof, he recounted the saying of the Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings be Upon Him). The minister’s face brightened with happiness and said, Welcome, O Prophet of Allah (Ya Rasool Allah is Truth). He went inside and brought nine thousand dinars. He gave him three thousand dinars saying that it was for the return of loan; he gave him another three thousand dinars saying that it was for his children and then gave him another three thousand for his business. While seeing him off, the minister requested him earnestly that he was his religious brother and should not break his bond of love with him. He further asked him to come to him if he needed anything because he would always be ready to help him whole heartedly.
However, the man proceeded at once to the court of the magistrate with the money. The creditor was summoned. When he came, he saw the debtor standing thunder struck. The man counted three thousand dinars and placed in front of the magistrate. Now the magistrate asked the man where he had got the money from as he was penurious.
The man related the whole incident to the court. By hearing all, the magistrate got up and brought three thousand dinars. He said to the man, ‘Why should the minister get all the blessings, I am also the slave of the same Beloved Prophet (Peace and Blessings be Upon Him), I will pay your loan.’ Furthermore, when the creditor heard this, he also said, ‘Why should all of you get the blessings; I also desire His (Peace and Blessings be Upon Him) blessings too’ and he wrote a statement that he forgave the debt in the name of Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings be Upon Him).
At last, by seeing all, the man (debtor) gave back the dinars to the magistrate and thanked him. The magistrate said that he had given the dinars in the love of Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings be Upon Him) and would not take it back, they were his and he should accept the money. The man went home with twelve thousand dinars while his loan had also been cleared.
