salam Maulidur Rasul to all muslimin n muslimat out there...repeat after me...."Allahumma salli 'ala muhammadin 'abdika warasulika n-nabiyyi l-ummiyyi wa'ala aalihi wasahbihi wasallim"3x
"Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet: O ye who believe! Send ye blessings on him, and salute him with all respect." (Qur'an 33:56)
'Selawat' to Prophet Muhammad SAW bring lots of benefits and blessings to those who say it. Just like istighfar, tasbih, etc. 'Selawat' was also the practice of the salafusolleh. When digging the trench during the battle of Khandaq, the sahabahs also said 'Selawat' in abundance to raise the spirit of the Mujahideen.
- Hadith from Ibn 'Umar
Our Love for the beloved Prophet is a prerequisite for a complete iman and it is not a forced love because the Prophet have already loved us in the first place. He yearned for us long before we even existed…
Are our love for him that great?
“O Allah, grant me the feeling of love for the Prophet as great as his love for his ummah… or even if it's just a small piece of it”.
Selawat and salam be upon you… ya Rasulullah, with this small effort of my struggle, I hope for your shafaat on the day of our meeting... so intercede for us, ya Rasulullah. Ameen
