Episode Notes

In Episode #12, our respected Imam Omar Suleiman relates to us the task of the angel when a servant of Allah makes du’a for our beloved and honoured prophet s.a.w..

If a servant sends salawat (peace and blessings) upon the prophet s.a.w., Allah sends ten times of that peace and blessings on them and Jibril responds to our salawat with salams onto us.  And as if that’s isn’t enough, Allah will add ten good deeds to us, will forgive ten of our sins and raise us by ten stations.

The prophet s.a.w said there are angels whose function is to look for people who send salawat onto the prophet s.a.w. and these angels convey that salawat to the prophet s.a.w. and  every single time we do that not only does Allah and the angels pray on us but the prophet s.a.w. will thereupon respond to that salawat by our name.

However, this gives rise to the question : do you need to be in Madinah or Makkah for your salawat to reach the prophet s.aw.? The answer to this question can be found towards the end of this Imam’s five minute informative discourse with us.

We think of the profit slice I'm in many ways, but how often do we think of the profit slice on them as a brother, and not just any brother but as the most blessed brother because the profits license at home whiny Bobby, they are my brothers. They are my beloved ones, those who believe in me, and they've never even seen me. And so we pray that we are those people. Right? So you think of the Prophet slice, I'm in many different ways. But how often do you think of him as your most noble brother in faith? And this is significant to the discussion about the angels because just like when we were talking about defending your brother's honor and defending the prophets lie, Selim, your

00:00:38--> 00:00:53

most noble brother's honor, and then we just spoke about supplication for your brother behind his back. What about for your most noble brother, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the form of Salawat, in the form of sending prayers and peace upon him.

00:00:59--> 00:01:32

There's a famous Heidi from avevano capital, the low tide I know he said, I asked the Prophet slice alone. How much of my day should I dedicate towards Salawat towards sending prayers and peace upon you? He said, I already do a great deal of it. But how much should I do? So the profits license I do as much as you wish and it would be blessed? He said, one fourth, the profit slice and I'm said, that's good, and do more if you want and it will be blessed. He said, How about one half of the Messenger of Allah? He said, that's fine, that's good. And if you do more, you'll be blessed. He said, How about two thirds of the profits licensed said, that's fine. And if you do more, you'll be

00:01:32--> 00:02:08

blessed. He then said, yada sola, what if I just dedicate the entirety of my day, to sending prayers and peace upon you? The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, If you do that, then Allah will take care of all of your concerns, and forgive all of your sins. Now you hear that? The youth and you might think, well, then what's the point of making your app? Why don't I just say Salawat all the time. And that's an improper understanding of the Hadith because the practice of the Prophet slicin himself was to pray for himself and he taught Sahaba how to make drought for themselves also how to supplicate for themselves, so we too, should do that. But even Tamia Rahim, Allah says

00:02:08--> 00:02:47

something very interesting about this narration, he said that obey Him. leukeran had a very specific draft that he used to make for himself. So he used a lot a certain time to himself. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was telling him if you want to replace that, with Salawat, upon the profit slice alum, that it will take care of all of your concerns, and forgive all of your sins, and even taymiyah connected it to the Hadith about an angel saying, I mean, and for you as well, when you make your offer your brother or sister behind their back, why he said, because if Allah sends an angel to say, amin and for you as well, when you pray for anyone else, any any one of your brothers

00:02:47--> 00:03:26

and sisters, what then when someone sends prayers upon the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and that's where the other ahaadeeth come in so many Hadith where the prophets lie some came forth with joy on his face, and they told the profit slice on Why do you have such joy? And he said, it he said, I'm just came to me, and he said, doesn't it make you happy? that no person sons Salawat upon the prophets lie, Selim no person sends their peace and blessings upon you, except that Allah sends 10 times that peace and blessings upon them. Djibouti and it Sam says it was so late to it he Ashleigh and Judy Radha his Salaam responds to each one of us as well. With salah and Salaam. And Allah

00:03:26--> 00:04:04

subhanho wa Taala grants you 10 good deeds and Allah subhana wa tada forgives 10 of your sins and Allah subhanaw taala raises you by 10 stations by 10 double jack and that's just scratching the surface on all of the narrations about Salawat on the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and how they involve the angels. The prophets lie Some said there are angels that roam the earth, looking for people that send Salah watts on himself Allah hottie most of them and conveying that to him it is Salatu was Salam. And every single time one of us does that, not only do Allah and the angels pray upon us, but the prophets lie Selim has a specific angel that informs him that someone has sent

00:04:04--> 00:04:44

Salawat upon him, and the prophets lie some responds by name to that Salaam to each one of us when we do so sallallahu alayhi wa sallam May Allah send his peace and blessings upon him it his Salatu was Salam. And that is something that whether we're quarantined or distant from Medina, it doesn't matter the prophets I send them said, you can send them at any part of the earth, and the angel will convey it to him sallallahu wasallam and he will respond. And the greatest part of that is just like I mean, what could be missing IE for our brothers and sisters, that Allah and the Menaka would you bring it Salaam at the top of them will all respond with prayer and blessings upon us, increasing

00:04:44--> 00:04:54

our good deeds, removing our sins and increasing our stations in general? May Allah subhanaw taala increase those stations until we reach the station in the presence of the Prophet sallallahu
