Assalam u Alaikum
Is this the view of the ulama of Deoband on Darood e Taj ?
Question : What do the 'ulama of Deen say in regard to the excellence, merits and proofs of Durood-e-Taj which is established among the majority of muslims especially amongst the ignorant, and in which the following words [=qualities] are ascribed to the Prophet ('alaihis salaam) : "One who repels calamities, epidemics, droughts, ailments and anxieties." Is the recitation of this Durood and accepting its excellence and merits is established/proven by the Shariah ruling or not? Or is it Shirk? or Bid'a ?
Answer : Whatever excellence is attributed to Durood-e-Taj by the ignorant (jahil) is absolutely wrong. And its status is impossible to be defined, until outlined by the Legislator (Holy Prophet) 'alaihi salaam. And this Durood was drafted years after [him]. So how can the reading of this wording (seegha) of durood be declared worthy of reward? To disregard the wordings of durood which are established by sahih hadith and hope for merits in this (durood) and reciting it, is Bid'a Dalaala. And since there are shirkiyah statements (contaminated with shirk) included in it, there is a great danger of misleading the beliefs of masses. So the reading of this Durood is FORBIDDEN. And the teaching of Durood-e-Taj to the masses is like giving them lethal poison, because many people will become victims of contaminated shirk beliefs and that causes them to be destroyed.
