Today, after our dhikr-fest, I was reading “Virtues of Salaat alan Nabi” and a couple of the hadith cited were of benefit to me…so I am sharing it for it to be easy for me to remember:
According to Abu Hurairah RadiAllahu Anhu, Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam said, “Whoever recites salaat on me ten times, on him shall Allah send one hundred mercies, and whoever recites it one hundred times on him shall Allah send one thousand mercies and whoever out of love and devotion increases his salaat beyond that, for him shall I be an intercessor and a witness on the day of Qiyaamah.”
Sayyidina Umar RadiAllahu Anhu reported that Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alayhi wa Sallam said, “On the enlightened night (Friday night) and the enlightened day (Friday) recite much salawaat on me, because your salawaat are presented to me and (in return) I pray for you and beg forgiveness on your behalf.”
So lets make good use of a few spare moments in our Fridays, inshaAllah. And that goes for me first.
