I will tell her Al Ansari are the Allahu Taala and who he says that one day the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam woke up and the Prophet SAW Salem was clearly in high spirits, and you could see the happiness and joy gleaming from the face of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And so the companions said to the prophets of Allah and he was salam. You ya rasool Allah. You have awoken today in high spirits, and the joy is gleaming from your face. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said yes, because Gibreel Alayhis Salam came to me and he said, Whoever from your ummah sense Allah upon you once Allah will record 10 has an ad for him. 10 good deeds for him. Allah will erase

00:00:41--> 00:01:28

10 See at 10 cents from him, Allah will raise him by $10 jet by 10 degrees and status and Allah will respond to him in like manner, meaning Allah will send salah upon that person as a result of them ascending Salawat on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in Allah Hello, I'm Anna Dakota who you will find Luna and Nebby year you Halina Amanu Sallu alayhi wa Sallim Otis Lima, Allah says in the Quran Indeed, Allah sends his prayers and blessings upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the angels do so as well. Oh, you who believe? Send your peace and blessings upon the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam, O Allah

00:01:34--> 00:02:16

who is going to mandate upon Allah subhanaw taala anything except for him? Subhana Allah to Allah Ya Allah azza wa jal says that I send Salawat on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and who amongst us can claim to be better than the angels that Allah says that the angels all send Salawat on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they do that out of the honor and love that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is duly granted because of who he is, because of what his station is, but beyond for all of us, as the home of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, how much do we owe the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam for being the vehicle of Islam, the vehicle of

00:02:16--> 00:02:58

faith and guidance that literally saves our lives and our afterlife. And so have no claim Rahim Allah said, that if the servant was to send salah upon the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam equivalent to every single breath that Allah subhanaw taala gives to them, he still will not have fulfilled the right of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon us. And so it is something that we owe to our messenger and his Salatu was Salam. And we can never get sick of it, nor will we ever do enough of it. And Allah Subhana Allah has made it so that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that angels travel around the earth, there are angels that are going all over the Earth

00:02:59--> 00:03:38

at all times, and they are conveying to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the salam of his ummah, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, that Allah gives me the ability to respond to each and every single one of those settlements, wherever you are, you send your peace and blessings upon him. And think about the operation of the angels going around the Earth, and gathering that and bringing that to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then Allah allowing, through His divine means the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to respond. Now that's the angels and that's the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But what does it mean for Allah

00:03:38--> 00:04:26

Himself to send Salawat upon you, as Allah says, he sounds Salawat on the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the relevant mentioned that what Salawat upon you means is a vicar with Santa film, Allah al Adha, that Allah subhanaw taala remembers you, and he praises you, in the highest heavens amongst the greatest of His creation. And so you want your name to be mentioned in the highest ranks, then remember the highest of Allah's creation and son Salawat on him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, on top of that 10 sins are forgiven 10 Good deeds are entered into your book of deeds. And Allah azza wa jal raises you by 10 degrees. And so the more Allah raises you, the higher

00:04:26--> 00:04:59

chance you have to be closer to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the last day and that's why if you really compare these two, a hadith one of them the Prophet slice and M says, Do you know who the hell is the miser is? And they said, Who is O Messenger of Allah? He said, the one in whose presence I am mentioned, but he doesn't sound salah upon me. You are believed you're stingy with yourself just like a person can be violent enough. See, a person can be a wrongdoer and oppressor to their own soul. When you hear the name of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:05:00--> 00:05:38

and you're not moved to at least in the first time, which is mandatory. The first time his name is mentioned within a setting to sand Salawat upon him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, why would you be stingy with yourself and deprive yourself of the good deeds? And why would you not feel grateful to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for having brought you the message of Islam and so you become stingy with yourself just like a person can become an oppressor of their own soul. Now you compare that to the other Hadith where the prophet slice and I've said hola Naseby, Yeoman Kiana at Federal Home, Alia Salatin, that the person closest to me on the day of judgment is the one who

00:05:38--> 00:06:15

sends the most Salawat upon me. And so think about a person who sends Salawat on the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam all the time. 10 degrees of heaven, 10 degrees of heaven, 10 degrees of heaven, until eventually they are close to him sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we know that there are other narrations where the prophets Allah, Allah Hardy was the mentions. A person who has the best character, a person who cares for the orphan, a person who follows him the most closely, and all of that is part of the package of loving the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we verbalize that indicated by saying Allahu wa Salatu was Salam ala Nabina Muhammad.

00:06:17--> 00:06:56

And so we do it every morning. We do it every evening, countless times. We do it on the night and day of Friday, which is technically Thursday night up until Friday Maghrib where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that it is the most blessed time to send Salawat upon him. We do it in our salah. Of course, your Salah is incomplete without we do it in our do app. And in one narration, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, when one of you makes your app, he should start off by praising and glorifying his Lord meaning with to speak and tech meet. And then he should invoke Salawat on the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then make dua for whatever it

00:06:56--> 00:07:40

is that you want. And so you start off with Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah. And then you go on to ask for whatever it is that you want to ask. Now think about what you would ask for and why you would ask for it and what you hope from Allah subhanaw taala even when you make your and so you have the very famous narration where obaidul The Allah Tada and who says, ya rasool Allah, I frequently ask Allah to send Salah lots upon you. So I frequently do Salawat how much of my dua should I devote to salawat and so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, you can do as much as you want. He said, the AutoSum Allah, what if I make it a quarter 1/4 of my dua, the prophet

00:07:40--> 00:08:23

slice and I'm said, do whatever you want, and it will be better for you if you increase it. He said, What if I do half the profits on the law? And he said, I'm said, do whatever you want, and it will be better for you if you increase it. He said, What if I do two thirds? He said, Do whatever you want, and it will be better for you if you increase it. He said, Yeah, rasool Allah. What if I devote all of my dua to sending salata pani? What if my whole euro is Allahumma salli wa salam ala Nabina Muhammad, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, he then took the hammock, while your federal academic said if you do that, you will be freed from all of your worries, and your sins

00:08:23--> 00:09:00

will be entirely forgiven. As Subhanallah I want you to pause with this for a moment. Think about what it means to ask Allah to send peace and blessings on the messengers of Allah or use them for you. Think about how much comes through this how much blessing comes in your life. And the scholars mentioned various reasons for this one of them is the very famous narration that when a person makes dua for their brother, Allah azza wa jal has an angel that says, I mean, well, that could be missing here. I mean, and for you as well, what better brother to make your app for them the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The other things a scholar has mentioned is that, you know, on one

00:09:00--> 00:09:40

hand, we learned from the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam himself that there are other forms of wicked other forms of Darat. But we also find that with obaidul, the Allah Tada. And as I've been telling you Rahim, Allah mentions, it may be that perhaps he had a particular thing he was asking Allah for. And when he replaced it with Salawat, Allah subhanho wa taala, granted it to him. And so if you're asking Allah for anything of this world, what better than to replace that with Salawat or a great portion of that drought with salawat and gained the blessings of that that which you see, and that which you don't? And when it comes to the hereafter? The prophets Allah, Allah Hardy was

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

salam said, there is no Muslim who sends salah upon me, except that the angel sends Allah upon him, until he reaches the end of his sending Salawat upon me, so let the servant decrease in this or increase meaning. You choose how much of a station you want to have with Allah by sending Salawat

00:10:00--> 00:10:17

On the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and if you want the most praiseworthy station, then send your Salawat constantly upon the one who has been guaranteed the most praiseworthy station because he is the most praiseworthy creation of all time sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:10:18--> 00:11:06
