Good Deed: #27 Send salutations to the Prophet (SAW)

Send salutations to the Prophet
  • “Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet: O ye that believe! Send ye blessings on him, and salute him with all respect.”[33:56]
  • The Prophet(SAW) said: “Allaah has angels who travel about throughout the land, conveying to me the salaams of my ummah.” Narrated by al-Nasaa’i, 1282; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Nasaa’i, 1215.
  • The Prophet said, “For one who sends blessings upon me once, Allah will send tenfold blessings in return” (Muslim and others).
  • Abdullah ibn `Amr ibn Al-`Aas is reported to have said, “For one who sends blessings upon the Prophet once, Allah and His angels will send seventy-fold blessings.”
  • The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “If one sends me blessings once, Almighty Allah will send him tenfold blessings, forgive him ten sins, and elevate him ten degrees.”
  • The Prophet (SAW) said “Those who are most deserving of me (my intercession) on the Day of Judgment are those who used to increasingly seek Allah’s Blessing for me” (At-Tirmidhi).
  • Ka’b bin ‘Ujra met me and said, “Shall I give you a present? Once the Prophet (saw) came to us and we said, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! We know how to greet You; but how to send Salat upon you?’ He said ‘Say: O Allah! Send your greetings (Salawat) on Muhammad and his family, the same way as You sent Your Salawat on Abraham’s family. O Allah! Send Your blessings on Muhammad and on Muhammad’s family, the same way as You sent Your blessings on Abraham’s family. You are indeed worthy of all praise, full of glory (Bukhari)

    Asalamu alaikum!

    At the end of the article you wrote: NB: Always remember when doing a good deed, have the correct intention/niyyah, do it for Allah’s pleasure with sincerity. May all our good deeds be accepted. InshaAllah.

    I have read (Sheikh Assim Al-Hakeem) :Q:The combination of asking ALLAH and using in shaa’ Allah should not be said. Is this correct?

    A: This is correct. One should not say this. A lot of the Muslims say this when they make Dua’a as they say: may Allah forgive you in sha’ Allah or May Allah reward you in sha’ Allah. This is inappropriate as no one can force Allah. The Prophet salla Allahu alaihi wa sallam had instructed us to be firm in our Dua’a.

    At the end of the du’aa this was written: May all our good deeds be accepted. InshaAllah.

    May Allah grant us all understanding. Ameen!

      what does inshaAllah mean? does it not mean if Allah wills.
      And say not of anything: Lo! I shall do that tomorrow,
      Except if Allah will. And remember thy Lord when thou forgettest, and say: It may be that my Lord guideth me unto a nearer way of truth than this.” (18:23-24) Surah Al-Kahf

        asalaamu alaikum
        Akhi the point that Hafizah is saying is that when making Duas we must say AMIIN because we are askin/wanting something from Allah and not Insha Allah. You are right when we say I going to do that or this then you have to say Insha Allah as it is mentioned in Surah al Kahf.

        May Allah teach us what will benefit us and benefit us which he tough us. Amiin
