Another virtue of sending salutations (durud)

Question

Kindly provide the reference for this Hadith:

“Whoever sends salutations upon me once, Allah Ta’ala will send salutations upon him ten-fold, will erase ten sins from him, and will raise him ten degrees in status”

 

Answer

Imam Nasai (rahimahullah) has recorded these words on the authority of Sayyiduna Anas ibn Malik (radiyallahu ‘anhu).

(Sunan Nasai; Al Mujtaba, Hadith: 1297. Also see Fathul Bari, Hadith: 6358, vol. 11 pg. 167 )

 

Imam Ibn Hibban and Imam Hakim (rahimahumallah) have declared a shorter version of this Hadith authentic.
