Sending Blessings upon the Prophet

November 3, 2016

We all have something that we are worried about right? Something that causes us anguish or pain or distress. 

 

But did you know that one of the ways through which we can ease this distress is by sending blessings upon the Prophet (salallahu alaihi wasallam)?

 

It was narrated that Ubay ibn Ka‘b (may Allah be pleased with him) said: 

 

I said: O Messenger of Allah, I send a great deal of blessings upon you; how much of my du‘aa’ should be sending blessings upon you? He said: “Whatever you wish.” I said: One quarter? He said: “Whatever you wish, and if you do more, that will be better for you.” I said: One half? He said: “Whatever you wish and if you do more, that will be better for you.” I said: Two thirds? He said: “Whatever you wish and if you do more, that will be better for you.” I said: I will make all of my du‘aa’ for you. He said: “Then your concerns will be taken care of and your sins will be forgiven.” [Reported by al-Tirmidhi
 

So how exactly do we send the blessings upon the Prophet (sallalalhu alaihi wasallam)? See below:
 

Allaahumma salli ‘ala Muhammad wa ‘ala aali Muhammad kama sallayta ‘ala Ibraaheem wa ‘ala aali Ibraaheem, innaka hameedun majeed. Allaahumma baarik ‘ala Muhammad wa ‘ala aali Muhammad kama baarakta ‘ala Ibraaheem wa ‘ala aali Ibraaheem, innaka hameedun majeed (O Allaah, send prayers upon Muhammad and upon the family of Muhammad, as You sent prayers upon Ibraaheem and upon the family of Ibraaheem; You are indeed Worthy of Praise, Full of Glory. O Allaah, send blessings upon Muhammad and upon the family of Muhammad as You sent blessings upon Ibraaheem and upon the family of Ibraaheem; You are indeed Worthy of Praise, Full of Glory) [Narrated by al-Bukhaari and Muslim from the hadeeth of Ka‘b ibn ‘Ajrah (ra)]

 

May Allah take care of all our concerns and worries.
