Shaikh al-Allaamah Abd al-Muhsin ibn Hamad al-Abbad al-Badr
There is no Muslim except that he loves the chosen Prophet and the chief of the sons of Adam: Muhammad ibn Abdullah (Peace and blessings be upon him). And how can the Muslim not love him, when it is he who Allah sent as a mercy to mankind, as Allah said:
“And We have not sent you (0 Muhammad) but as a mercy for the ‘Alamin (all of mankind).’ — al-Anbiya 21:107
From the rights of the Messenger of Allah (Peace and blessings be upon him) is that when he is mentioned, we send Salat and Salam upon him, (Peace and blessings be upon him). This action is from the noblest of deeds, as has come in the hadith of Abu Hurayrah going back [to the Prophet]:
“Whoever sends one Salat upon me, Allah will sent ten Salat upon him.”
So, what is the meaning of sending Salat upon the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him)? What is the correct manner in doing so, and what are its virtues? In this small treatise, al-Allamah Shaykh ‘Abd al-Muhsin al-‘Abbad clarifies all of that. He also mentions some of the books written on this subiect in accordance with what is proven by the sound legislative evidences. Likewise, he tackles the lies, fabrications, and exaggerations which some books hold as it relates to this subject, and in particular the book Dala’il al-Khayrat by al-Jazuli. We ask Allah to reward the author and make this book a benefit for the Islamic Ummah. Indeed, He is the All-Hearer, the One who responds to the supplications.
