“Remembrance of the Prophet ﷺ is the foundation of faith; the beggars are like kings due to his ﷺ remembrance.”

― Mawlana Jalaluddin Rumi (qaddasAllahu sirrahu)

Allahumma ṣalli ‘ala Sayyidina Muḥammadin wa 'ala ālihi wa ṣaḥbihi wa sallim taslīman kathīran tayyiban mubārakan fīhi jazīlan jamīlan dāiman bi dawāmi mulkillah.

“For good health, control your diet, for good
soul, control your sins, and for good faith, send
blessings upon the Prophet ﷺ.”

~ Imam Al Ghazzali رحمه الله

مَـنْ لَـمْ يَـقْـدِرْ عَـلـٰى مَـا يُـكَـفِّـر بِـهِ ذُنُـوْبـه ، فَـلْـيُـكْـثِـر مِـنَ الـصَّـلَاةِ عَـلـٰى مُـحَـمَّـدٍ وَ آلِـهِ ، فَـإِنَّـهَـا تـهـدم الـذُّنُـوب هَـدَمًـا

Whoever doesn’t have the ability to do what it takes to atone for his sins, let him increase in sending blessings on Muhammad and his family, for surely it destroys sins utterly.
—  Imam Ali al-Ridha (peace be upon him); Jami’ al-Akhbar, p. 63.

O Allah, praise Muhammad, the ascetic
prophet, the messenger of the only
Eternal King, may the blessings and
peace of Allah be upon him, blessings
that are eternal, and reach the farthest
limit of eternity, with neither break nor
depletion, blessings that save us from the
heat of the fires of Hell; an evil resting
place. O Allah, praise and grant peace to
Muhammad, the unlettered prophet, and
his family, blessings that are
uncountable and blessings whose supply
is not impeded. O Allah, praise
Muhammad with blessings that ennoble
his abode and blessings that on the Day
of Judgement procure his pleasure
through his intercession.


O Allah, praise Muhammad, the prophet
of noble origin, the Highbred master,
who came with the prophetic quotations
and Revelation, and who clarified the
meaning of interpretation, and to whom
came the faithful one, our master
Gabriel, peace be upon him, with honor
and dignity and who journeyed with him
to the King, the Glorious One, on the
long dark night and revealed to him the
heights of kingdoms of heaven, and
showed him the supremacy of the
Omnipotence of the heavens, and who
saw the Power of the Living, the Eternal,
the Abiding, the One who never dies.
May the peace and blessings of Allah be
upon him, blessings permeated with
beauty, charm, perfection, goodness and
favor.

O Allah, praise Muhammad and the
family of Muhammad as many times as
there are drops of rain. And, praise
Muhammad and the family of
Muhammad, as many times as there are
leaves on the trees. And, praise
Muhammad and the family of
Muhammad in as much abundance as
there is foam upon the sea. And, praise
Muhammad and the family of
Muhammad, as many times as there are
grains of sand in the desert and in the
wilderness. And, praise Muhammad and
the family of Muhammad as many times
as much as the weight of all the
mountains and all the rocks combined.


And, praise Muhammad and the family
of Muhammad, as many times as there
are dwellers of the Garden and dwellers
of the Fire. And, praise Muhammad and
the family of Muhammad as many times
as there are those who are righteous and
many times as there are those who are
corrupt. And, praise Muhammad and the
family of Muhammad as many times as
the night has alternated with the day.
And make, O Allah, our asking for
blessings upon him a shield which gives
us protection from the punishment of the
Fire and a means of us gaining
permission to enter the Abode of
Permanence, for You are the Mighty, the
Forgiving.

May the blessings and peace of Allah be
upon Muhammad and upon his virtuous
family, his blessed descendants, his
honored companions and his wives who
are the Mothers of the Believers.
Blessings that are continual and frequent
until the Day of Judgement. O Allah,
praise the master of the righteous, the
adornment of the messengers, the
choicest and noblest ever to have been
cloaked in the darkness of the night, or
bathed in the light of the day.


O Allah, O Master of Favor, whose
Strength and Might are unequalled, and
whose Favor and Virtue are beyond
compare, we ask You and nobody else
but You, to loosen our tongues in
beseeching You, and grant us success in
doing good deeds, and let us be among
the trustworthy on the Day of
Convulsions and Earthquakes, O Creator
of Might and Glory. I ask You, O Light
of the Light, for that which was before
time and eternity. You are the Abiding
with no end, the Rich with no equal, the
Holy, the Pure, the High, the Powerful,
the One who is neither encompassed by
space nor contained by time.


I ask You in all of Your most beautiful
Names and in the greatest of Your
Names, and for the sake of the rank most
noble to You, and for the sake of the
most plentiful reward with You, and for
the sake of the promptest response from
You, and in Your protected and hidden
Name, the Most Exalted of the Exalted,
the Greatest of the Great, the Most
Magnificent of the Magnificent, the One
who responds to and satisfies whosoever
calls upon You in them and whose
prayer is accepted.

I ask You, O Allah, and there is no god
except You, the Merciful, the Most
Merciful, the Creator of the heavens and
the earth, Master of Glory and Honor,
Knower of the unseen and the seen, the
Great, the Exalted. I ask You in Your
Greatest Name in which when we pray,
our prayer is granted, and in which when
we make a request, our request is
granted.


And I ask You in the Name that humbles
with its Might the Mighty ones, the
kings, the lions, the reptiles and
everything You have created. O Allah, O
Lord, accept my prayer. O You to whom
is the Majesty and Omnipotence, O
Master of Sovereignty and Kingdoms,
You who are the Living who never dies,
glory be to You, Lord. What is greater
than Your Rank, Higher than Your
Position? You are my Lord. O Holy One
in His Omnipotence, I beseech You and
I fear You. O Great, O Majestic, O
Powerful. O Allmighty, O Strong, You
have blessed Yourself, O Great One,
You have exalted Yourself, O Knowing
One, Glory be to You, O Great One,
Glory be to You, O Splendid One.


I ask You in Your Great, Perfect and
Majestic Name, not to give dominion
over me to the tyrant, the stubborn, the
rebellious satan, the envious, the weak
among Your creation, the oppressor, the
ruinous, the corrupter, the idolater, or the
willful.

O Allah, I ask You and I bear witness
that You are Allah, and there is no god
except You, the One, the Only, the
Eternal, the One who neither begets nor
was begotten, and there is nothing like
Him, O He, O the One who there is no
other except He, O the One who there is
no god except He, O my Infinity, O my
Eternity, O my Destiny, O my
Everlasting. O the One who is the Living
who does not die. O our God and God of
everything, God alone, there is no god
except You.


O Allah, Creator of the heavens and the
earth, Knower of the unseen and the
seen, the Merciful, the Most Merciful,
the Living, the Everlasting, the Judge,
the Benefactor, the Munificent, the
Reviver, the Inheritor, the Master of
Glory and Honor. The hearts of all
creatures are between Your hands, we
entrust them to You, for You cause
goodness to grow in their hearts and You
erase the evil from them, as You will.


So I ask You, O Allah, that You erase
from my heart everything that You hate
and fill my heart with fear of You,
knowledge of You, awe of You, longing
for what is with You, and security and
well-being, and have pity on us with
mercy and blessings from You, and
inspire in us that which is proper and
wise. And I ask You, O Allah, for the
knowledge of those who fear, the
repentance of the humble, the sincerity
of those who are certain, the gratitude of
the patient, and the penitence of the
truthful.

And we ask You, O Allah, by the light
of Your Face, which fills every corner of
Your Throne, that You cause the
knowledge of You to grow in my heart
until I know You. Your true Knowledge,
in a way that You should be known, and
the praise and venerations and abundant
peace of Allah be upon Muhammad, the
seal of the prophets and leader of the
messengers, and upon his family and
companions, and praise be to Allah, the
Lord of the Worlds.
