Jummah Post 21/12/2012 Part 1

Todays khutbah was on 'Virtues of Jummah' and in this Khutbah I mentioned one of the forgotten sunnahs of sending salawaat upon the Prophet Mohamed (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) in this I quoted from Imam Ibn Al Qayim's book 'The virtues of sending salawaat upon the prophet' see below:

  1. Doing this act is following Allaah's order 
  2. Sending Salutations on the Prophet agrees with Allaah's. And if they differ then our salutations are du'aa and request. Allaah's salutation raises the Prophet's rank and is a praise for him. 
  3. Sending salutations on the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) is an act the Angels do. 
  4. Sending salutations on the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) raises your rank ten levels. 
  5. Sending salutations on the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) removes ten bad deeds and adds ten good deeds to your record.
  6. Sending salutations on the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) is a means to draw you closer to the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) on the Day of Judgment. 
  7. Sending salutations on the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) allows him to return the same salutation to you. 
  8. Sending salutations on the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) is a way to earn Allaah's mercy. 
  9. Sending salutations on the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) saves you from being stingy in giving him salutations. 
  10. Sending salutations on the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wasallam) with the du'aa after the Adhaan earns you the right for his intercession on the Day of Judgment.
