Salawat and Love

November 16, 2022

Let us never forget to have a litany (wird) of salawat upon Rasulullah ﷺ, especially on the day of Jumu‘a, when we should send at least 1000 salawat upon him ﷺ. And the more, the better.  For through this practice, we seek to develop true love for him ﷺ. I must continue in my repetition of salawat as though saying: I love, I love you, I love you, Ya Rasulullah.

As I repeat — whether it rains or shines — I must mean what I say, until I begin to love sending salawat upon him ﷺ. Repetition is essential to develop commitment, constancy and to internalize the fruits of the action. By this, with Allah ﷻ’s leave, sincerity will develop. Salawat will then become easy and beloved.  Perhaps, we will even attain his special love ﷺ for us.

May Allah ﷻ help us be consistent in sending salawat upon His Beloved ﷺ and find sweetness in doing so.
