Allahu ta’âlâ sends ten salâts
It was declared in hadîth-i sherîfs; “If someone sends one salât to me, Allahu ta’âlâ sends ten salâts (compassion) to him, forgives ten sins of his and promotes his rank ten fold”
On the Day of Judgment, “The one who will be the closest to me and will deserve my intercession the most; is the one who has recited the most salât on me.”
Haqq ta’âlâ said to Hadrat Mûsâ (Moses) ’alaihi’s-salâm, “O Mûsâ, do you want Me to be closer to your tongue than your words, closer to your heart than your thoughts, closer to your body than your soul and closer to your eyes than their light?” When he said, “Yes, O my Rabb!” Allahu ta’âlâ decreed, “Then recite many salawât on Muhammad (Sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam).” Allahu ta’âlâ said, “O Mûsâ, do you want to not suffer thirst on the Day of Judgment?” When he said, “Yes, O my Rabb!” Allahu ta’âlâ decreed, “Then recite many salawât on Muhammad (sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam).”
Our Prophet (sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam) said;
“Those who will be the closest ones to me in every rank on the Day of Judgment will be the ones who have recited many salawâts on me in the world. Whomever recites one hundred salawâts on me on Friday and Friday evening, Allahu ta’âlâ satisfies one hundred needs. Of these needs, seventy belong to the Hereafter and thirty to the world. Then Allahu ta’âlâ sends those salâts to my grave by means of an angel. They are like gifts that you receive. That angel informs me of the name, descent and tribe of the sender and records it on a white sheet which is with me. My knowing after my death is like my knowing while I am alive.”
“On Thursdays, Allahu ta’âlâ sends angels having silver books and golden pens with them. They record those who recite many salât on the Prophet (sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam) on the day of Thursday and Friday evening (the night between Thursday and Friday).”
“When two Muslims meet each other, if they make musâfaha (shake hands in a manner prescribed by Islam) and recite salawât on the Prophet (sall-Allâhu ’alaihi wa sallam), their previous and future sins are forgiven.”
“When one of you enters the masjid, let him say salâm to the Prophet and say, O my Rabb! Protect me from Satan!”
According to another narration, “When he goes out, let him say, Allahumma innî as’aluka min fadlika.”
If there is no thanâ (praise) to Allahu ta’âlâ and no salawât to Rasûlullah at the beginning of the duâ (prayer), the duâ stays behind a curtain. Duâ with praise and salawât at its beginning is accepted.
Unless salawât is recited on Rasûlullah and his family, there is a curtain between the prayer and the sky. When salawât is recited, that curtain is torn and the prayer ascends to the sky. In case the salawât is not recited, the prayer comes back.
If the name of Allahu ta’âlâ is not mentioned and no salât is recited on Rasûlullah in a gathering, a whip stands ready over the attendants and it either torments or forgives them.
When you have ringing in you ears, remember me and recite salât on me.
He who intends to start a task should consult regarding that matter. Allahu ta’âlâ will grant him discretion in his task. In case one wants to say a word but forgets it, let him recite salât on me.
In case a beneficial action is started without mentioning the name of Allahu ta’âlâ and reciting salât on me, it is interrupted and its benediction will be removed.
After the demise of Hadrat Abû Hafs Kaghidî, one of the notables in Islam, someone saw him in his dream and asked, “How did Allahu ta’âlâ treat you?” He said, “He showed mercy, forgave me and put me in Paradise.” The man asked, “What was the reason?” He replied, “He stopped me among the angels. They counted my sins and my salawâts on Rasûlullah and found my salawâts more than my sins. Then Allahu ta’âlâ decreed to His angels: O My angels! Your task is over. Do not ask anything else. Take him to My Paradise!”
