So we entered the holy month of that Glorious Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam)- Rabiu l-Awwal. It is the day & night that the inhabitants of earth & Heavens celebrate. We should show respect for it, should recite a good many of Salatu Salam. May we not be lazy, say 1000 Salawat! Or say 500, or 300x, or 100x say “Allahumma Salli ala Muhammadin wa ala ‘aly Muhammadin wa Sallim”. Recite this. Allah Almighty grants 10 thawabs in return for 1 Salawat. The Master of Creation was born in this holy month- Rabiu l-Awwal. May it be mubarak for all of you. O Lord, may You make us reach many more years- may You make us gather under the flag of Your Beloved (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) in dunya as well as in akhirah O Lord. May our hearts be pure & our faces enlightened. May we be happy & joyful. Focus on Salawat al-Sharif, the troubles will be lifted from us. Recite 1000x, recite 10,000 if you like. No matter how much you recite on the Glorious Prophet, it is still little. It is little. He is the Glorious Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam). He is the Great Prophet on whom Allah Almighty sends Salatu Salam. Allah Almighty & the angels, the Great Angels, “‘Inna Allaha Wa Mala’ikatahu Yusalluna `Ala An-Nabiyi” (33:56). Allah (jj) & His angels send Salatu Salam on that Glorious Prophet. “Ya ‘Ayyuha Al-Ladhina ‘Amanu Sallu `Alayhi Wa Sallimu Taslimaan”. O you who believe! Send your Salat on him. Even if you have nothing else, say it & have no fear.
Unfortunately the ignorant ones of this time are enemies to Salawat al-Sharif. Before our mosques would be adorned with Salawat al-Sharif. In the time of Adhan al-Muhammadi, our Adhans would be joyful with Salawats. The blessings of the Salawat al-Sharif would descend upon the earth & the earth would shine, it would have barakah. O people, O Muslims! Recite Salawat in great numbers. No tornadoes will come on you, no severe cold weather will come on you. No severe snows or floods will come on you. No, they don’t reach you. It protects you, Salawat al-Sharifa protects you. O Lord, may You make us from those servants of Yours who recite plenty of Salawat al-Sharif on the Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam) You love. We are weak ones. We are weak. We are weak.. Say it all the time, recite Salawat continuously. If our people recite Salawat al-Sharif, no will tornadoes come on them. No snow, no cold weather will come on them. No roads will be closed, no floods come, no avalanches come, no. Recite Salawat.
Recite salawat from the minarets. They should build minarets in all our villages. They built dirty places. Build minarets everywhere! Let Adhan al-Muhammadi be recited. No avalanches, no snow will close roads. People won’t get lost, won’t be bewildered. O nation of Muhammad (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam)! Recite Salawat on our Prophet (sas), every trouble will be gone from you. Every closed door of yours will open, every difficult work will become easy- for the honour of that Glorious Prophet (sallAllahu alayhi wasallam).
