Before exploring my blog, please remember this: If you came here to sincerely learn about Islam, please be open minded. Let go of any ill-feelings, ideas, thoughts, impressions, etc. that you may have against Islam or Muslims, due to the media or judging a "Muslim."

For better understanding of Islam and Muslims, I suggest reading the posts in order starting from August with the label Introduction to Islam (scroll down and look to the right for blog archive for proper order (from bottom to top)).

If you are interested in learning more about Islam and Muslims and would like additional materials/information, please leave a comment and I will try my best to help.

*Information that reads "Sisters" is for females ONLY. Likewise, anything reading "Brothers" is for males ONLY. Whether "sisters or brothers" is mentioned throughout my blog or on another site, please respect the rights of other people, both Muslims and non-Muslims.

**I do not intend to argue or debate with anyone, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and beliefs. If something is personal, disrespectful, or offensive, keep it to yourself. THINK BEFORE YOU ACT! (this includes what you type) If you do not wish to learn about Islam or Muslims, but just want to start trouble, do it somewhere else, not here! (or better, don't start trouble at all) Haters are NOT welcome here!

Please leave comments or questions you may have regarding Islam or Muslims. I will get to them as soon as possible. Enjoy your time here!

Good Deed #27- Send Salutations to the Prophet (S.A.W)

1. “Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet: O you who believe! Send your blessings on him, and salute him with all respect.”[33:56]
2. The Prophet (S.A.W) said, “Allaah has angels who travel about throughout the land, conveying to me the salaams of my ummah.” Narrated by al-Nasaa’i, 1282; classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Nasaa’i, 1215.
3. The Prophet said, “For the one who sends blessings upon me once, Allah will send tenfold blessings in return.” (Muslim and others)
4. Abdullah ibn `Amr ibn Al-`Aas is reported to have said, “For the one who sends blessings upon the Prophet once, Allah and His angels will send seventy fold blessings.”
5. The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “If one sends me blessings once, Almighty Allah will send him tenfold blessings, forgive him ten sins, and elevate him ten degrees.”
6. The Prophet (S.A.W) said, “Those who are most deserving of me (my intercession) on the Day of Judgment are those who used to increasingly seek Allah’s blessing for me.” (At-Tirmidhi)
7. Ka’b bin ‘Ujra met me and said, “Shall I give you a present? Once the Prophet (S.A.W) came to us and we said, ‘O Allah’s Apostle! We know how to greet you; but how to send Salat upon you?’ He said ‘Say: O Allah! Send your greetings (Salawat) on Muhammad and his family, the same way as You sent Your Salawat on Abraham’s family. O Allah! Send Your blessings on Muhammad and on Muhammad’s family, the same way as You sent Your blessings on Abraham’s family. You are indeed worthy of all praise, full of glory. (Bukhari)
