A great Scholar, Saint, Jurist and Teacher, Imam Ibn-Faikihani [Rahmatullaahi ALai] says that there was once a pious man called Sheikh Moosa Zareer[[Rahmatullaahi ALai]] who was blind and had narrated his own story: “I was in a ship which was sinking. I lapsed into semi consciousness. Muhammad (Sallal Laahu Alaihi Wasallam) appeared to me in this state and taught me the following Durood which he said should be recited a thousand times by the passengers of the ship. The passengers had barely recited the Durood 300 times and the ship was saved (miraculously). The other ship on the high seas sank, but this ship reached its destination safely and soundly. This miracle was a sufficient eye-opener for the members of the ship.”
Darood Tanjeena should be recited a 1000 times at the time of any hardship or calamity. (Zaadus Saeed, by Hakeemul Ummah Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi[AR], Page 14). Other saints have advised to recite this Durood Shareef 70 times or 40 times during days of calamity, turmoil and troubled and InshaAllah, it will work wonders.
