What Angels Do When You Say Salawat Upon Prophet ﷺ | AIYP Ep-12 | Shaykh Omar Suleiman

We think of the prophet (saw) many ways. But how often do we think of the Prophet (saw) as a brother and not just any brother, but as the most blessed brother.

ٱللَّٰهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَىٰ آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ

Allah-humma salli ‘ala Muhammad wa ‘ala aali Muhammad

Oh Allah, send your blessings upon Muhammad and upon the family of Muhammad

All your concerns will be lifted

When the companion Ubai Ibn Ka’ab asked the Messenger what would happen if he dedicated all of his supplications towards sending blessings on the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ .

The Prophet replied “Your needs will be satisfied and your sins will be forgiven”.

Ubai bin Ka’ab (may Allah be pleased with him), who said; ‘I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, I supplicate often, so how much of my supplication should I devote to you?’ He replied, ‘as you desire’. I said, ‘a quarter of it?’ He said ‘as you desire, but if you were to increase upon this, it would be better for you.’ I said, ‘half of it?’ He said, ‘as you desire, but if you were to increase upon this, it would be better for you.’ I said, ‘two-thirds of it?’ He said again, ‘as you desire, but if you were to increase upon this, it would be better for you.’ Finally I said, ‘and if I dedicate my supplication in its entirety to you?’ He said, ‘then your needs will be satisfied, and your sins forgiven.’

(Sahih Musnad Ahmed)
