    Almighty Allah says: "Surely Allah and His Angels send blessings on the Holy Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). O you who believe! Send Blessings (Durood) and Salutations (Salaams) on the Prophet with worthy Salutation". (Surah al-Ahzab: 56)

    Jazakallahu Khayr sister :)

    In the article it says>>

    I wish they gave Evidence for these sorts of claims. Although of course we get reward for good actions, if there is certain reward such as the one outlined in that article, there needs to be sound evidence for it from either the book of Allah or the Sunnah of the Prophet :saw:

    Thanks for the article, it is important to make dua and send salutations to the Prophet.


    Allah Almighty says: (Lo! Allah and His angels shower blessings on the Prophet. O ye who believe! Ask blessings on him and salute him with a worthy salutation) (Al-Ahzab 33:56).

    Allah's prayer for the Prophet is a mercy that He bestows on him. Likewise, the angels’ prayers for the Prophet are a means of seeking forgiveness for him, and the believers' prayer for the Prophet is a supplication for him‏. So we are asking Allah to bless the Prophet not literally pray for him as we pray for Allah our Creator.


    There are many expressions used for sending blessings on the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). Among these expressions are the following:

    1. `Abdur-Rahman ibn Abi Laila said: Once I met Ka`b ibn `Ajrah (may Allah be pleased with him), who said to me, “Shall I give you a present? The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) once came out to us and we said, ‘O Messenger of Allah! We know how to salute you. But how can we pray for you?’ He said,

    ‘Say: O Allah! Send Your mercy on Muhammad and on the family of Muhammad, as You sent Your mercy on the family of Ibrahim, for You are Most Praiseworthy, Most Glorious. O Allah! Send Your blessings on Muhammad and on the family of Muhammad, as You sent Your blessings on the family of Ibrahim, for You are Most Praiseworthy, Most Glorious.’

    2. Abu Sa`id Al-Khudry said: We said, “O Allah’s Messenger! Teach us how to pray for you.” He said,

    ‘Just say: O Allah! Send Your mercy on Muhammad, Your servant and Messenger, as you sent Your mercy on Ibrahim, and send Your blessings on Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, as You sent Your blessings on Ibrahim and the family of Ibrahim.’

    3. Abu Hamid As-Sa`idi (may Allah be pleased with him) said: They said, “O Messenger of Allah! How can we pray for you?” He said,

    “Say: O Allah! Send Your mercy on Muhammad, his wives, and his offspring, as You sent Your mercy on the family of Ibrahim; and send Your blessings on Muhammad, his wives, and his offspring, as You sent blessings on the family of Ibrahim. You are Most Praiseworthy, Most Glorious.”

    The word offspring here refers to the righteous offspring. Allah says: (Gardens of Eden which they enter, along with all who do right of their fathers and their helpmeets and their seed) (Ar-Ra`d 13:23).

    In another Surah of the Qur’an: (Our Lord! And make them enter the Gardens of Eden which Thou hast promised them, with such of their fathers and their wives and their descendants as do right) (Ghafir 40:8).

    In a third place: (And they who believe and whose seed follow them in faith, We cause their seed to join them (there), and We deprive them of naught of their (life’s) work) (At-Tur 52:21).

    While supplicating his Lord, as related in the Qur’an, Prophet Ibrahim (peace and blessings be upon him) asked, (And of my offspring (will there be leaders)?) Almighty Allah answered him: (My covenant includeth not wrongdoers) (Al-Baqarah 2:124).

    4. Abu Mas`ud Al-Badri said: Once the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) came to us while we were in the gathering of Sa`d ibn `Ubadah. Hence Bishr ibn Sa`d asked him, “O Messenger of Allah! Almighty Allah has enjoined us to send blessings on you, then how to do so?” The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) kept silent until we wished he had not asked him. Then he said,

    “Say: O Allah! Send Your mercy on Muhammad and on the family of Muhammad, as You sent Your mercy on the family of Ibrahim; and send Your blessings on Muhammad and on the family of Muhammad, as You sent Your blessings on the family of Ibrahim among all the worlds. You are Most Praiseworthy, Most Glorious.”

    The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) continued, “As for the way of extending salam (greetings), it is as you know.’’

    These are just a few forms to be used for sending blessings on the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). They are useful especially in Prayer. However, outside of Prayer a person may use his own wording to send blessings on the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him).
