(salam)

Salawat is a truly beautiful thing. The virtue of salawat is truly great. We should aim to say salwat at any time we can because remembrance of the Ahlul Bayt (as) is remembrance of Allah (swt)

What is Salawat?

The Prophet Muhammad (saws) when he was asked how to send blessings on him (salawat), he replied "Say : O Allah, Bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, just as you blessed Abraham and the family of Abraham, verily you are Praiseworthy and Glorious."

(in arabic : Allah Humma Sale ala Muhammad wa ale muhammad)

That is the method of invoking blessings onto the Prophet (saws) and his family as prescribed by RasoolAllah (saws)

Virtue of Salawat

"Indeed Allah and his angels bless the Prophet: O you who have faith! Invoke blessings on him and invoke Peace upon him in a worthy manner"-Surah Ahzab 33:56 (Quran)

Allah (swt) is COMMANDING the people to recite salawat upon the RasoolAllah (saws) and as mentioned in the first hadith, the method he said to use was to bless his progeny as well.

The Prophet Muhammad (saws) said :"Wherever you may be, invoke blessings on me for verily your blessing reaches me"

The Prophet Muhammad (saws) said "The invocation of blessing on me is a light on the sirat"

The Prophet Muhammad (saws) said "Whoever invokes blessings on me, writing it on paper, the angels continue to seek forgiveness on his behalf as long as my name remains written on the paper"

SubhanAllah! Such an easy thing to say and yet so much reward for uttering one sentence! The Hadith about writing it on a paper, it is something I will definitely get around to doing, it takes maximum 1 minute to do and place it in a frame or somewhere safe, and the angels will always be asking forgiveness for you!

But this is the hadith that struck me most

Imam Baqir (as) or Imam Al sadiq (as) said:"The heaviest thing to be placed on the scales on the day of resurrection is the invocation of blessings on Muhammad and his household (as)

If you think about it, its the HEAVIEST THING, yet it is such a simple formula! Think about if you recite it so much on a daily basis, A) you won't be sinning because instead you'll be doing salawat. B ) The salawat will outweigh the previous sins on the Day of Reckoning InshaAllah

Surely dhikr of Allah (swt) is better?

Also participate in dhikr of Allah (swt) but the Remembrance of Allah (swt)'s divinely sent Household is also remembrance of him. And as mentioned in above hadiths about the virtues it is the HEAVIEST thing on The day of Judgement! That means if place one on one with ANYTHING else, the salawat will outweigh it.

InshaAllah this thread has helped you guys, and InshaAllah we are given the towfiq to recite salawat as a daily activity whenever possible

May Allah (swt) bless you all.

(wasalam)

Shamil-e-bazam-e-aza zood baja lata hey

Aur yeh wo sajda hey jo masjood baja lata hey

Haqq-e-Zahra ki qasam Aal-e-Nabi per Salwat

Wo ibadat hey jo Maabood baja lata hey

----------------------------------------------------

FOR CURE FROM DISEASE/ILLNESS:

• Ayatullah Nasrullah Burujardi says the patient should pray himself (if the mareez is unable to pray himself then some one should pray on his behalf) – 17,000 times salwat. 1000 salwat hadiya to each of the 14 masoomeen, 1000 salwat as hadiya to Bibi Zainab, 1000 salwat as hadiya to Hazrat Abbas and 1000 salwat as hadiya to Ummul Baneen. (very effective if prayed in one sitting)

----------------------------------------------------

FOR FULFILLMENT OF HAJJAT AND REMOVING OF WORRIES.

• Pray 1000 times in one sitting Allaahumma Laan Muawiya ibn Abi Saffyan. (Laan (part of tabbarrah), is very effective because it makes you realize why the laan is being sent on the person, and awakens you to stay away from evil deeds. Praying laan fulfills desires quickly, also pray salwat before and after the tasbihs, also do istigfar)
