one can benefit tremendously from sending salawat and salaam on our beloved

      Why did Allah order to send durood and salaam on Holy Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam ?  
“Allah did confer a great favour on the believers when He sent among them an apostle from among themselves, rehearsing unto them the Signs of Allah, sanctifying them, and instructing them in Scripture and Wisdom, while, before that, they had been in manifest error.” (Chapter 3, verse 164)

Although his name is now invoked in reverence several billion times every day,
Holy Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam  was the most reviled figure in the history of the West from the 7th century until quite recent times.
 He is the only founder of a major world religion who lived in the full light of history and about whom there are numerous records in historical texts,
although like other pre modern historical figures not every detail of his life is known. Because Holy Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam  is one of the most influential figures in history,
. Over the centuries Muslim authorities have believed that, when Christ spoke of the coming reign of the Paraclete, he was referring to Ahmad.
Also of great importance are the names that identifyHoly Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam  as the Prophet, including Nabi (“Prophet”) and Rasul Allah (“the Messenger of God”).

Holy Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam , however, has many other names, including “sacred names,” which Muslims believe were given to him by Allah SWT (God) and by which he is called in various contexts. Traditionally, 99 names for him are:

Names play a major role in daily Muslim piety and in the practice of Sufism. An understanding of their meaning is essential to gaining any serious knowledge of the Islamic view of Holy Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam  or what some have called Islamic prophet logy.

Why did Allah SWT order to send durood and salaam on Holy Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam ? Some may argue that he is not physically alive so what good can come from it. Abu Huraira (ra) narrates that Holy Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam said: ‘If anyone of you greets me, Allah SWT returns my soul to body and I respond to the greeting’.

So if I should say ‘Ya Nabi salaam alaika’ through the Grace of Allah SWT ,Holy Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam  soul is reunited with his body in order for him to reply ‘Wa Alaika’. And this happens all the time, whenever we send salawat and salaam on him. So if I should send salaam on him and he responds every single time, then am I not then building a connection and relationship with him?

Sending salawat and salaam on Holy Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu-alaihi-wasallam  is amongst the Sunnah of Allah, because He and His angels are practicing it all the time. Sunnah is what you say, do and allow, so therefore salawat and salaam on Prophet is one of the Sunnah of Allah. Some say that Allah’s is the manifestation of His Divine Attributes, but if He is doing something constantly then it is part of His Sunnah. So if Allah is doing it and you follow Him you are then aligning yourself with your Lord in a special way.

one can benefit tremendously from sending salawat and salaam on our beloved leader. Not only in this world but also the next because on that Day instead of looking for help, the Messenger (saw) will be searching for you as he will be doing for all his followers. The matter is in your hands.( What Is Your excuse?)

"Live as long as you wish, you shall die. Love whatever you wish, you shall be separated from it. Do whatever you wish; you shall be rewarded for it. - Jibraeel (A.S)
