The Virtues of Sending Prayers on The ProphetRegular price $14.95
The greatest source of mercy Allāh has given to mankind is Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), ‘the mercy to the worlds’. Almighty Allāh informs us that not only is He Himself perpetually sending blessings unto the Prophet (peace be upon him), but His angels are perpetually asking him to do so as well. He then has instructed every believer to invoke His blessings upon the Prophet (peace be upon him) and to send salutations unto him in the following passage:
“Indeed, Allāh confers blessing upon the Prophet and His angels invoke Him to do so. O you who believe, invoke divine blessings upon him and salute him with peace.” (Sūrat al-Aḥzāb 33:56)
Yet, scholars explicitly state that our invoking blessings upon Prophet (peace be upon him) does not benefit him since he will be forever honored as the Beloved of Allāh and His perfect creation. Rather, our invoking blessings upon him simply benefit us and us alone. This book endeavors to elucidate those benefits.
