Superb Dhikr

Superb Dhikr 1

One of the most beautiful and important Azhkar is sending  Blessings upon the Prophet Muhammad (Blessings and Peace of Allah be upon him); Allah the Almighty says:

(إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ ۚ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا) [الأحزاب:56]

(Interpretation of meaning):

“Indeed, Allah confers blessing upon the Prophet, and His Angels [ask Him to do so]. O you who have believed, ask [Allah to confer] blessing upon him and ask [Allah to grant him] peace” [Al-Ahzaab:56]

It was narrated from Abu Hurairah (may Allah the Almighty be pleased with him) that: the Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) said:

“من صلَّى عليَّ واحدةً ، صلَّى اللهُ عليه عشرًا”(مسلم:408)

(Interpretation of meaning):

“Whoever sends Salah upon me once, Allah will send Salah upon him tenfold”[Muslim:408]

Getting Salah from Allah the Almighty means Mercy from Allah the Almighty. Every time  a Muslim sends Blessing upon the Prophet Muhammad (Blessings and Peace of Allah be upon him), he will get tenfold of Salah. This encourages us to increase sending Blessing upon the Prophet Muhammad (Blessings and Peace of Allah be upon him) as much as we can. Consequently, we will gain and enjoy the most important blessing which is Mercy from Allah the Almighty. This act constructs a fruitful way to become closer to Allah the Almighty. It shows and indicates a deep love of the Prophet Muhammad (Blessings and Peace of Allah be upon him). We have to remind ourselves and others as well to obtain more rewards. As a result, this path will pave the way for us by the Mercy of Allah the Almighty to enter Paradise. It is a precious deed and superb Dhikr.
