Sending a blessing (salutation) upon Mohamed - peace be upon him

September 13, 2019

مَنْ صَلّى عَلَيَّ وَاحِدَةً صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ عَشْرًا

“Whoever sends a blessing (salutation) upon me, Allah sends ten blessings upon him” (Muslim)

The meaning of Allah sending blessings upon a person is that He showers him with His mercy. However, a servant may receive, depending on the love, fervor, and devotion with which he or she made the salutation, much more than ten blessings. Another narration in Sunan al-Nasa`i adds, “By it Allah will [also] remove from the suppliant tens sins and raise his rank ten degrees [in Allah’s sight]. The Word Salawat, “salutations”, means more than sending blessings. Scholars explain that it also includes honoring and praising someone, making a good mention of them, elevating their status, and expressing love for them- all of which apply in the case of Allah sending salutations on His Messenger. (taken from Provisions for the Seekers, Hadith 201, page 90)
