All Praise and Glory is to Almighty ALLAAH Kareem and Choicest Salaams and Salutations upon His Beloved Habeeb Muhammad Rasoolul Laah (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Sallam)
فَاذْكُرُونِي أَذْكُرْكُمْ وَاشْكُرُوا لِي وَلَا تَكْفُرُونِ Remember Me, and I shall remember you. Be Thankful to Me and do not be ungrateful to Me." Soorah Baqaarah
ALLAAH KAREEM say's in the Holy Qur'aan قل إن كان آباؤكم وأبناؤكم وإخوانكم وأزواجكم وعشيرتكم وأموال اقترفتموها وتجارة تخشون كسادها ومساكن ترضونها أحب إليكم من الله ورسوله وجهاد في سبيله فتربصوا حتى يأتي الله بأمره والله لا يهدي القوم الفاسقين
Say, "If your fathers, and your sons, and your brothers, and your wives, and your tribe, and your acquired wealth, and the trade in which you fear a loss, and the houses of your liking - if all these are dearer to you than Allaah and His Noble Messenger and fighting in His way, then wait until Allaah brings about His command; and Allaah does not guide the sinful." [Soorah Taubaa-Qur’aan]
Allaah [Ta’aalaa] has issued three orders according to Qur'aan Firstly we should believe in Allaah Kareem and His Prophet Muhammad [Sallal Laahu Alaiehi Wa Sallam] Secondly we should honor Almighty Allaah and His Rasool , The Mercy to the worlds, The Seal of Prophet hood, The Pride of Creation, The Praised & Chosen One…and Thirdly; we should praise The Glorious, The Aware, The Enricher, Allaah (Almighty and Glorious is He) morning and evening.
LOVE HONORING [TAZEEM] & RESPECT
FOR A BELIEVER (MOMIN) IMMEDIATELY AFTER BELIEF, THE FIRST THING THAT BECOMES COMPULSORY IS THE HONORING (TAAZEEM) OF THE HOLY PROPHET (PEACE BE UPON HIM)…. Allaah Kareem says in the Soorah al-Ahzaab الْأَحْزَاب(the Confederates) وَمَن يُطِعِ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ فَقَدْ فَازَ فَوْزًا عَظِيمًا
And whoever obeys Allaah and His Holy Messenger e (out of love) will surely achieve a great success
Soorah, Aal-i- Imraan آل عِمْرَان [The Family of ‘Imraan]
Perfect belief in the Messenger of Allaah Al Kareem [Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Sallam].,
Loving and honoring him Assisting the way of life [deen] brought by him.
This is the Divine Guarantee of success.
Allaah Kareem has indeed bestowed a great favour upon the Muslims, in that He sent to them a Noble Messenger from among them, who recites to them His verses, and Purifies them, and teaches them the Book and wisdom; and before it, they were definitely in open error
Allaah ta’aalaa describes this bounty that He gave to the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) in the Qur’aan, وَرَفَعْنَا لَكَ ذِكْرَكَ and We have raised for you your mention. We bear witness five times a day that he is the Prophet of Allaah Kareem, we send peace upon him during our prayers, we open our gatherings with his mention after the mention of Allaah Kareem and we ask Allaah [Ta’aalaa] to bless him before we make a duaa. All of these acts show that we bear witness that he (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم)delivered the message.Bearing witness that he delivered the message necessitates his love, his obedience and sending salaam when he is mentioned. You should believe in Allaah and His (Prophetic) Messenger, and struggle hard in Allaah’s way with your property and your persons; that is better for you, if you only knew! Allaah Kareem says in the Holy Qur’aan
Tell them My Beloved e! If you do love Allaah, imitate me (love me and build up your moral and spiritual life on my imitation): Allaah will love you and forgive your sins: For Allaah is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful
If only they had come to you when they wronged themselves, and begged Allaah’s forgiveness, then the Messenger would have asked forgiveness for them and they would have found that Allaah accepts repentance and is most merciful.
“A group of Angels travel throughout the earth to convey greetings of my Ummah to me.” Such a blissful saying of the Noble Messenger of Allaah Kareem [Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Sallam]. Subhaan Allaah, how merciful is our Rabb Subahahu wa Ta’ala in blessing us with such a magnificent gift! There is no geographical restrictions, no time restrictions, no cultural, no national, no social, no age, no status, no educational…..no restrictions. By saying one Durood as you read this, wherever you happen to be on the face of the earth, an Angel will immediately carry this to our Beloved Prophet (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Sallam) as he rests under the splendid Dome of Felicity. Alhamdu lil laah!
Conclusion Dua' and Darood are at the very root of our Deen and as such should not be neglected. Asking Allaahu ta 'ala to send Salaat Alan Nabee [Darood Shareef] develops love in the heart for their Beloved Prophet (Sallal Laahu ‘Alaiehi Wa Sallam). All the true believers sacrifice themselves and their possessions in the way Fi Sabeel lil laah hoping to please Allaah ta'aalaa. We pray that Allaahu Kareem continue to allow us to be true to our Deen and always remain close to those who love Him.
