Adorn your hearts with prayers upon the Beloved ﷺ
Adorn your hearts with prayers upon the Beloved ﷺ
There are three levels of sending salutations to the Prophet ﷺ
1) Gaining the shafa’ah of the Prophet by sending salawat 10 times in the day & 10 times in the night. The Prophet salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said,
Whoever says salutation upon me 10 times in the morning & 10 times in the night, therefore he is obliged to be given my intercession in Yawm al Qiyama. [Imām al Tabaranī]
2) Sending salawat 200 times in a day (100 in the morning, 100 in the night). Allah will grant our hajat, 70 in this Dunya & 30 in the Akhira. This is what related by Imām Abū Mūsā al Madinī with a hasan sanad. Imām Dāruqutnī related differently by saying sending salawat 100 times, Allah will grant 100 hajat in Dunya & Akhira. But the bottom line is that by sending lots of salawat, Allah will grant one’s wishes in Dunya & Akhira.
3) If you want to have the vision of our Master salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam & be amongst the sālihīn, send salawat not less than 500 times. Shaytan would whisper that 500 is too much. But in reality, it’s an easy thing to do. After every fard salat, say
a) [verse 33:56] “Inna Allaha wa mala`ikatahu yu saloon ala anNabi, ya ayyuha allatheena amanoo salloo AAalayhi wasallimoo taslimā.”,
b) “Muhammad” 3 times & then
c) “Allahumma salli ‘alayh” 100 times.
At least do it for 40 days with istiqama (consistency) to gain his vision.
— Al Habīb Kadhim as-Saqqāf hafizu Llah –
اَللّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلٰى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ مَدِيْنَةِ العِلْم وَ سَفِيْنَةِ الحِلْم وَعَلٰى اَلِه وَصَحْبِهِ وَ سَلِّم
Allāhumma Sali ‘Ala Sayyidina Muhammadin Madinatil ‘ilm wa safinatil hilm wa ‘Ala aalihi wa sahbihi wa salim.
O Allāh ﷻ pray upon our master Muhammad the city of knowledge and the ship of forbearance and upon his family, his companions and send salutations.
A woman came to Sayyidina Hassan Al-Basri (rahimahu Llah) and said,
My daughter passed away and now I wish to see her in my dream.
Sayyidina Hassan (rahimahu Llah) told her,
Offer four rakat Nafl after Isha and in each rakaat recite Surah At-Takasur (102). Then go to sleep while reciting Salawaat upon RasulAllah ﷺ until you fall asleep.
The woman did so and narrated the dream to Sayyidina Hassan (rahimahu Llah) the next day. She said,
I saw her in a bad state. She was wearing dirty robes. Her hands were tied and there were chains of fire around her feet.
Sayyidina Hassan (rahimahu Llah) asked her to give sadqa and hope that her daughter’s affliction gets lessened. The following night Sayyidina Hassan (rahimahu Llah) himself saw a dream wherein he was in Jannah and there was a beautiful young girl on a throne dressed in magnificent clothes. She told him that she was the daughter of the woman who had visited him. Sayyidina Hassan (rahimahu Llah) told her,
But your mother told me that she saw you in a bad state.
The girl said,
Indeed what she said was true. We were 70,000 souls who were afflicted with the torture of the grave until a pious person passed by us. He recited Salawat upon RasulAllah ﷺ dedicated it’s sawaab to us. And Allah accepted it in such a manner that we were freed from our tribulations and what you see now is due to barakah of that Durood Shareef.
– Al-Qawl Al-Badee : Imaam Shams Ad-Deen Sakhaawi, p.234-235 –
O Allah! Bestow blessings upon our master Muhammad, the opener of what was closed, the seal of what had preceded, the helper of the Truth with the Truth, and the guide to Your straight path, and upon his Family, as is truly merited by his greatness and magnificent rank—as much as fills what is known, and by the number of what is known, and by the weight of what is known; a tremendous blessing in stature and magnificence.
I ask you, O Allah, by its secret, and by the secret of its secret, and by the secret of the one upon whom You sent your blessings with it, and by the secret of those who send blessings with it, from the time its secret manifested till the Abode of Permanence, that You bestow blessings and salutations upon the one You have ennobled by it, and by whom You ennobled it; the secret of its existence, the treasure-store of its bounty and magnanimity, by the secret of the overflowing secret, whose secret is in every secret of our master and patron Muhammad. [And bestow this] upon his Family, Companions, lovers, and followers.
I ask You, O Allah, that You grant me rewards by this benediction, for the good works of the night and day have passed me by. Accept from me what You have granted me enabling grace to perform of prayers, obligations, supererogatory acts, litanies, and remembrances, and bestow upon me the secret of its secret as You have bestowed upon the possessors of multifarious secrets who are the “the ever patient, the veracious, the devout, the spenders of charity, and those who seek forgiveness in the early hours”—by Your pure largesse and generosity, O Clement, O Coverer of Faults! Amin!
O Allah! Bestow blessings upon our master Muhammad, the opener of what was closed, the seal of what had preceded, the helper of the Truth with the Truth, and the guide to Your straight path, and upon his Family, as is truly merited by his greatness and magnificent rank — a prayer by which You show me the Light of Lights that is Your Essential Self and no other; a prayer by which You unveil for me the mystical reality of Your Prophet, our master Muhammad, as he truly is with You; a prayer by which You unravel for me the conditioned-ness [quyud] of Your Names and Attributes, and through them give me drink from the lights of all of Your Beautiful Names; a prayer by which You gather for me [in my account] the worship of all of Your creation, at every breath and moment; a prayer by which You purify my heart with the secret of divine self-disclosure [bi sirr al-tajalli]; and a prayer by which you bestow upon me the Supreme Sainthood, the Most Exalted Wisdom, the Most Dazzling Light, the Loftiest Secret, and cause me to arrive unto gnosis of You through the inner path; and draw me to You with an absolute magnetic drawing, till my heart contains no sense of anything besides You, and till I have no longing or desire for anything except Your goodness. And surround me with the protective gates of Your Divine Concern, O Allah, O Guardian, O Protector! Amin!
There Are Indeed Countless Verses In The Glorious Qur’an Which Command Us To Express Gratitude For Allāh sūbhanahu wa ta’ala’s Favours Gratitude For His Countless Blessings
And If We Express Gratitude For His Blessings He Will Increase Them Further. Water, Air, Light, Hearing, Sight, Heart, Health, Youth And Well Being Are All Blessings Of Allāh sūbhanahu wa ta’ala. Then Reflect Upon The Necessity To Express Gratitude For The Arrival And Prophethood Of The Personification Of Mercy, The Greatest Guide And The Benefactor Of The Universe ﷺ
Is There Any Favour Greater Than This Favour Or Any Blessing Better Than This Blessing ﷺ
I can guarantee that if you spend 30 minutes of your time everyday sending Salams and Salawat upon the Messenger of Allah ﷺ then you will embrace his character ﷺ. You are going to feel mercy and generosity because this is the most beloved name to Allah ﷻ.
– Sayyid Shaykh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi hafizu Llah –
Praise be to the One who guided us
Through His chosen slave, who summoned us
To Him with authority, indeed he invited us
At your service (Oh Prophet), Oh, you who guided and urged us forward
Allah, your Creator has sent His Mercy upon you
Indeed, We have been distinguished and favored through you
Oh, possessor of Intercession!
— The Shimmering Light compiled by Habib Umar b. Muhammad b. Salim b. Hafiz b. al-Shaykh Abi Bakr b. Salim
This is an English translation of Darūd al-Tāj,
O Allah, send blessings and Peace upon our Master and Patron Muhammad,
The Owner of the Crown and the Ascent and the Buraq and the Standard,
The Repeller of Affliction and Disease and Drought and Illness and Pain.
His name is written on high, served and engraved in the Tablet and the Pen,
The Leader of All, Arabs and non-Arabs,
Whose body is sanctified, fragrant, and pure,
Illumined in the House and the Haram,
The Sun of Brightness, the Full Moon in Darkness,
The Foremost One in the Highest Fields, the Light of Guidance,
The Cave of Refuge for Mortals, the Lamp That Dispels the Night,
The Best-Natured One, The Intercessor of Nations,
The Owner of Munificence and Generosity.
Allah is his Protector, Gabriel is his servant.
The Buraq is his mount, the Ascent is his voyage,
The Lote-Tree of the Furthermost Boundary is his station,
Two Bow-Lengths or Nearer is his desire,
His desire is his goal, and he has found his goal,
The Master of the Messengers, the Seal of the Prophets,
The intercessor of sinners, the friend of the strangers,
The Mercy for the Worlds,
The rest of those who burn with love, the goal of those who yearn,
The sun of knowers, the lamp of travellers,
The light of Those Brought Near,
The friend of the poor and destitute,
The master of Humans and Jinn,
The Prophet of the Two Sanctuaries,
The Imam of the Two Qiblas,
Our Means in the Two Abodes,
The Owner of Qaba Qawsayn,
The Beloved of the Lord of the Two Easts and the Two Wests,
The grandfather of al-Hasan and al-Husayn,
Our patron and the patron of Humans and Jinn:
Abu al-Qasim MUHAMMAD Son of `Abd Allah,
A light from the light of Allah.
O you who yearn for the light of his beauty,
Send blessings and utmost greetings of peace
Upon him and upon his Family.
اللهم صَلِّ علي سيدنا محمد صلاة تزكينا بعدد كل فكر في قلوبنا و علي اله و صحبه و سلم
Allahumma sali ‘ala sayyidina Muhammadin salaatan tuzakinaa bi adadi kulli fikrin fi quloobina wa ‘ala alihi wa sahbihi wa salim
O Allāh ﷻ pray upon our master Muhammad a prayer which purifies us, with every thought in our hearts and upon his family, his companions and upon them be peace
Allah has encompassed all things in knowledge (65:12)
