IMPORTANCE OF SALAWAT SHARIF


The most virtuous of our dhikr is salawat-i sharif. A believer will benefit spiritually to the degree that he sends peace and blessings upon the Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu alaihi wa aalihi wa sallam). This is because the value of our Prophet (salla Allahu alaihi wa aalihi wa sallam) in the eyes of Allah is most high.
The most important virtue of a servant is to recognize the Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu alaihi wa aalihi wa sallam) clearly.
Devotees of the Prophet (salla Allahu alaihi wa aalihi wa sallam), therefore, embrace the salawat'us-sharifah as a continuous chant, for they are means of increasing the love of the Prophet (salla Allahu alaihi wa aalihi wa sallam) in a Believer's heart.
It has been narrated that an individual who had failed to adopt the character of the Prophet (salla Allahu alaihi wa aalihi wa sallam) saw him in his dream one night.
The Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu alaihi wa aalihi wa sallam) ignored him. Sadly he asked:
"O Messenger of Allah! (salla Allahu alaihi wa aalihi wa sallam) Are you upset with me?"
"No".
"In that case why are you ignoring me?"
"I don't know who you are".
"How can that be o Messenger of Allah! (salla Allahu alaihi wa aalihi wa sallam) I am from your community. The scholars say that you can recognise members of your community better than a mother recognizes her own child…"
"That is true. However, I do not see any trace of my character on you. In addition, no blessings or peace have ever come to me from you. Know that I only recognise those of my community to the degree that they have taken on my character".
On awakening from his sleep deeply saddened, this believer then repented for his former state and took on the praiseworthy character of the Prophet (salla Allahu alaihi wa aalihi wa sallam). He spent a great portion of his time sending peace and blessings on the Prophet (salla Allahu alaihi wa aalihi wa sallam). A little while later he saw the Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu alaihi wa aalihi wa sallam) in his dream once more. This time the Messenger of Allah (salla Allahu alaihi wa aalihi wa sallam) said to him:
"Now I know you and I will intercede for you"…

اللَّهُمَّ صَل عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ ۞ الفَاتِحِ لِمَا أُغْلِقَ ۞ وَالخَاتِمِ لِمَا سَبَقَ ۞ نَاصِرِ الحَقِّ بِالحَقِّ ۞ وَالهَادِي إِلَى صِرَاطِكَ المُسْتَقِيمِ ۞ وَعَلَى آلِهِ حَقَّ قَدْرِهِ وَمِقْدَارِهِ العَظِيمِ ۩
