Durood Sharif

Allaah Kareem commands us to send Salawaat, Durood, Salutations of Peace and Blessings of Allaah upon Nabi [Sallal Laah Alaieh Wa Sallam] by saying,
“Verily, Allaah and His Angels recite Salaat on the Nabi, O you who believe call for Allaah’s Blessings on him and greet him saying peace be unto you.”
This commandment is unique unlike any other Ayaat of the Holy Quraan because in this Ayaat Allaah [Ta'aalaa]first establishes that He Himself and also His angels participate in this act.
Allaah Kareem says,

“Verily, Allaah and His angels…”. Allaah [Ta'aalaa]begins the commandment by using a word of emphasis, “Innaa”, as if to say, “Surely,” as if to say, “Verily,” this word is used to indicate a strong emphasis. Continue on with the Ayaat and you will find something amazing which you will not find in any other commandment, that Allaah [Kareem] affirm that He Himself takes part in this work also.
For Allaah [Ta'aalaa] to command the believers to do something is one thing and for Him to first affirm His own participation and the participation of His angels and then command the believers to join in the work shows the greatness and virtue of that action. There is no other commandment in the Holy Quraan in which Allaah Kareem affirms His own participation.
In this unique injunction, commandment, Allaah  Almighty uses a verb which is in the present tense and indicating a continuous and perpetual action. This means that this action is something which is being carried out now and always, meaning, it is a certainty that Allaah [Ta'aalaa]and His Angels continuously recite “Salaat” on Nabi [Sallal Laah Alaieh Wa Sallam] at all times, now and forever, it is something that will never ceases!
