A young man who was making tawaaf of the Ka`bah was reciting Durood Shareef in
abundance. Someone asked if he experienced any effect of the Durood Shareef. The young
man narrated the following episode:
My father and I went for Hajj. Along the journey my father became ill and died. His face
became black; his eyes became horribly contorted and his stomach bloated. I cried and said:
"Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi raji-oon." I bewailed my father's death in the journey and his
condition. That night when I fell asleep, I saw in a dream Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi
wasallam) approaching my father. He rubbed his blessed hand on my father's face.
Immediately it became whiter than milk and glittered. He then rubbed his hand on my
father's bloated stomach. His stomach subsided and became normal. When Rasulullah
(sallallahu alayhi wasallam) was about to leave, I took hold of his blessed shawl and
exclaimed: "O my chief! Who are you?" He said: "Do you not recognize me? I am
Muhammad, the Rasool of Allah. This, your father, was grossly disobedient and a sinner.
However he recited Durood in abundance. I have therefore come to his aid when this
calamity befell him."
