What happens when you supplicate for the prophet?

  • You’re obeying an order of Allah ‘azza wa jall [Quran, 33:56]
  • It raises your rank ten levels.
  • It removes ten bad deeds and adds ten good  deeds to your record.
  • It’s a means to draw you closer to the prophet on the Day of Judgment.
  • It’s an act the angels do.
  • It allows him to return the same salutation to you.
  • Its a way to earn Allah’s mercy.
  • It saves you from being stingy in giving him salutations.

[As related by Ibn Qayyim al-Jawzeeyah in “Jala ul-afham fee fadlees salat wa salaam ala kahyree an-nam”]

Al-Manaawee said: There are many of words and phrases for sending salutations on the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon
him). The most famous and best is: “Allahumma salli alaa Muhammadin wa alaa ali Muhammadin, kama sallayta alaa Ibraheem wa alaa ali Ibrahim” [Faydul Qadeer #1403]

  • Next Friday make sure to increase your salutations on the Prophet
  • Remind yourself by setting an alarm on Fridays.
  • Inform and teach others, inshaa’Allah!

NOTE:  These salutations on the prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) should be done individually, not in a group.
