Irving Darvish bhai has posted an excellent translation of the famous Darood Taj (The Invocation of the Crown) on his blog. Darood Taj is a popular Darood ( prayer of blessings upon the Holy Prophet, alayhisalatu was-salaam) much in use in the sub-continent. It is particularly loved by those following the sufi path and all who wish to cultivate the love of the Noble Messenger (Peace and Blessings be upon him). The translation is here. A transliteration of the Arabic text is given below.

Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammadin wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallim bi-qadari azmati Dhatika fi qulli waqtin wa hin.

 

The darood actually ends with the words wa sallimu taslima but it is customary to add another darood at the end in response to the final line which advises sending blessings.
