Darood e Ibrahimi
Our Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H.) is the role model for all people, and from him, Allah spread his Message and taught people to do what is best in this life.
So Darood e Ibrahim prays to Allah that He increases our love for the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H.) and allows us to be closer to him and get blessed by his closeness.
This Darood also paid respect and showed gratitude towards those who followed the Prophet’s (P.B.U.H.) footsteps and never changed Allah’s orders or opposition to others even if they were harmed.
The story of Ibrahim in the Quran is an example of that, as Allah tested him by asking him to leave his son alone, but he didn’t change his mind. He prayed to Allah so much that it made a mark on earth called dawar. I seek refuge in you o, Lord of Prophet Muhammad(P.B.U.H.).
