Benefits of Sending Blessings Upon the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)

Sending peace and blessings upon our Prophet Muhammad is not only highly virtuous but something many Muslims are unfortunately not doing enough. In hopes of inspiring you to pick up the great habit of consistently sending blessings on the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), we have put together a short list of benefits one achieves by doing so.

YOU ARE FULFILLING A COMMAND OF ALLAH

Allah clearly commands the believers in the Quran to send blessings on the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)

“Indeed, Allah and His Angels send blessing upon the Prophet, and His angels. O you who have believed, ask [Allah to send] blessing upon him and peace”

Quran 33:56

ALL YOUR CONCERNS WILL BE LIFTED

When the companion Ubai Ibn Ka’ab asked the Messenger what would happen if he dedicated all of his supplications towards sending blessings on the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)

The Prophet replied “Your needs will be satisfied and your sins will be forgiven”.

Ubai bin Ka’ab (may Allah be pleased with him), who said; ‘I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, I supplicate often, so how much of my supplication should I devote to you?’ He replied, ‘as you desire’. I said, ‘a quarter of it?’ He said ‘as you desire, but if you were to increase upon this, it would be better for you.’ I said, ‘half of it?’ He said, ‘as you desire, but if you were to increase upon this, it would be better for you.’ I said, ‘two-thirds of it?’ He said again, ‘as you desire, but if you were to increase upon this, it would be better for you.’ Finally I said, ‘and if I dedicate my supplication in its entirety to you?’ He said, ‘then your needs will be satisfied, and your sins forgiven.’

(Sahih Musnad Ahmed)
ALLAH WILL SEND BLESSINGS ON YOU

The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said: “Whoever sends blessings upon me, Allah will send blessings upon him tenfold”.

(Sahih Muslim, 384).

THE PROPHET WILL RECEIVE AND RETURN YOUR GREETINGS

Abdullah ibn Mas’ood said: The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said: “Allah has angels who go around on earth, conveying to me the Salaam of my Ummah.”

(An-Nisa’i)

Abu Hurayrah narrated that the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said: “There is no one who sends Salaam upon me, but Allaah will restore to me my soul so that I may return his Salaam.”

(Abi Dawood Sahih)

YOUR SINS WILL BE FORGIVEN

Anas Ibn Malak reported that the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said: “Whoever sends blessings upon me once, Allah… will erase ten sins from him, and will raise him ten degrees in status.”

(An-Nisa’i Sahih)
IT WILL DRAW YOU CLOSER TO THE PROPHET

‘Abdullah ibn Mas‘ood that the Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said: “The closest of people to me on the Day of Resurrection will be those who sent the most blessings upon me.”

(At-Tirmidhi, 484)

Imam Nawawi states, “Nearest to me” signifies “those who are most entitled to my intercession”.

IT HELPS YOUR DUAA GET ACCEPTED

Umar Ibn Khattab said, “Duaa is suspended between heaven and earth and none of it is taken up until you send blessings upon your Prophet (pbuh).

(At-Tirmidhi)

SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE AND ITS CONSEQUENCES.

In the name of Allah, most compassionate and most merciful. “From among the signs of the Hour (end of time) are that religious knowledge will be taken away (by the death of religious scholars), ignorance will prevail, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and there will be a prevalence of Zina.” – Prophet (saw) We begin our topic with these words of our beloved Prophet. How true were his words? We live in a world where all these things are prevalent and unfortunately in our Muslim community as well. Many of our Muslim brothers and sisters are trapped in the evil of Zina and it has become a norm for them, as a result they don’t even consider it haram and unlawful. Allah says in holy Quran: Sūrah al-Isrā’, 17:32: “And do not even approach zina, for it is an outrageous act, and an evil way…’’ We are not going into detail about why Zina is unlawful but in this article, you will find the consequences of this sin. How this affects a life of a person physically, mentally, spiritually and so

MUSLIMS MOURN ALI BANAT - THE MAN ‘GIFTED WITH CANCER’

It’s a sad day for all those who knew Ali Banat, the young man gifted with cancer. Ali Banat was an inspiring Australian Muslim philanthropist whose diagnosis of cancer motivated him to dedicate his life to charity work. “At this point in my life, Alhamdulillah I have been gifted by Allah with cancer throughout my body and I have changed my whole life to helping people,” he said. An Inspiration to Muslim Youth A man of a kind heart was known for his charity work over the past three years. One of his biggest achievements is MATW project, (Muslims Around The World) launched in October 2015 to assist those less fortunate in the poverty-stricken areas of Togo, Africa. He was an inspiration to Muslim youth, dedicating his big fortune to charity work. His organization built mosques and schools for the less fortunate in Africa. May Allah accept it from him! Indeed, to Allah we belong and to Him we shall return. May Allah have mercy on our brother Ali Banat and make it easy

THE MAN WHO INSPIRE MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS EVEN WHEN HE IS PASSED AWAY (ALI BANAT)

Ali Banat is a sydney born who was diagnosed with Cancer and doctors have given him only 7 months to live. Despite his circumstances, he considers this a gift from Allah. Ali Banat, is a young man who, in his own words, was “gifted” with a stage 4 cancer throughout his body. He was given just a few months to live but took this great test as an opportunity to change his life. Upon receiving this news he immediately sold his business, gave up his lavish lifestyle and prized possessions and began a new mission to give up his Dunya and work for his Akhira. Ali has humbly dedicated the remainder of his life to helping those who are far less fortunate than him and in doing so, set up the charity MATW Project (Muslims Around The World) which has already changed the lives of so many. Being diagnosed with cancer is like death sentence for many. But this is not the way Australian Muslim Ali Ali Banat sees it. For him, the sickness is unquestionably a gift from Allah. “At this point in m
