Shower Thy blessings on Hazrat Muhammad ever and ever until Thy blessings are tobe showered. Grant Thy bounty and mercy on Muhammad until Thy bounty is granted and mercyis showered. The most selected favours on the Spirit of Muhammad amongst all persons, on the
name of Muhammad amongst all names, on the heart of Muhammad amongst all hearts. Thymost bountiful favours on the grave of Muhammad amongst all graves, on the tomb ofMuhammad amongst all the bodies, on the clay of Muhammad (tomb) amongst all clays. MayAllah shower His blessings on Muhammad the best of all that and on the descendants ofMuhammad, on the Companions of Muhammad, on the friends of Muhammad, and on all hisfamily members, O! Merciful Almighty Allah and Great Merciful”.This Salawat is usually recited inthe graveyard while paying homage to the deceased. When it is recited, Allah showers Hisblessings on the deceased. When the sons go to the graveyard they should recite the aboveDurood Shareef on the graves of their father and mother, and all the parents who have passedaway.
