Bismillaahir Rahmaanir Raheem.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 56:
Allah and His Angels send blessings on the Prophet: O ye that believe! Send ye blessings on him and salute him with all respect.
Amongst the narrations regarding the salutations which are considered authentic are:
Abdullah bin Amr bin Al-‘As reported that he heard the Prophet (saws) saying, "If anyone invokes blessings upon me once, Allah will bestow blessings upon him ten times over."Related by Muslim.
Ibn Mas’ud reported that the Prophet (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) said, "The people nearest to me on the Day of Judgment will be the ones most conscientious in invoking blessings upon me." Related by Tirmidhi.
Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) said, "Do not turn my grave into a site of festivities, but send greetings to me for your greetings are raised to me wherever you might be."Related by Abu Daw’ud.
Aus reported that the Prophet (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) said, "The best of your days is Friday, so send more and more greetings to me on it, for your greetings are presented to me." They asked, "How are our greetings presented to you while you are dead and your body is turned into dust?" He (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) replied, "Allah has forbidden the earth to consume the bodies of the prophets."
Related by Abu Daw’ud and Nasa’i.
Abu Hurairah reported that the Prophet (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) said, "When any muslim sends greetings to me, Allah returns my soul to me so that I may respond to his greetings."
Related by Abu Daw’ud. Allahu Akbar.
Abu Talha Al Ansari said, "The Prophet (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) woke up one day cheerful and beaming. His companions exclaimed, ‘O Prophet of Allah (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam), you woke up today cheerful and beaming.’ He (sallallahu alaiyhi wassallam) replied, ‘Yes! A messenger (Angel) of Allah, the Mighty and the Glorified, came to me and said, "If anyone from your Ummah sends you a salutation, Allah will record for him ten good deeds, wipe off ten of his sins, and raise him thereby ten degrees in rank, and He will return his salutation with a similar salutation".’Related by Ahmad. Allahu Akbar. Now we know the importance and EXCELLENCE of sending salawaat to our Beloved Messenger of ALLAH.
Today I want anyone who read this Reminder to send lots of salawaat to the Prophet before Magrib (Allahumma Sally alaa Muhammadin…to the end).
Just say in shaa Allah and act upon it today please.
No Aameen today so let’s see those who just say Aameen without reading the REMINDER first😊. I will share how to recite the salawaat in the next Reminder be-iznilLah.
