A Friday Reflection shared from our Suhba Online Program with Shaykh Mokhtar Maghraoui.
The path to Allah is a never-ending struggle of sidq, or truthfulness, in words, deeds and inner states until we meet our Lord.
Who better to learn sidq from than al-Sadiq al-Amin ﷺ — the Truthful, the Trustworthy?
How? Our salawat, or prayers upon him ﷺ, are a type of suhba with him ﷺ. Our salawat are conveyed to him ﷺ, and he ﷺ responds with a prayer of peace for us.
What a powerful means to build a living relationship – spiritually, emotionally and intellectually – with the Beloved ﷺ!
The day of Jumu‘a is a chance for my heart to be in jam’, to become spiritually gathered, on Allah. Of the most virtuous actions on the day of Jumu‘a is to send abundant salawat on the Messenger ﷺ. Coincidence?
Let’s hasten to gain the suhba of his sidq ﷺ. And let’s show sidq in seeking his suhba by plentiful salawat upon him ﷺ.
Let us also not forget to recite Surat al-Kahf today.
