Benefits of Prayers Upon Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa sallam َفَضْلُ الْصَلاةِ عَلَى رَسُوُلِ الّلَهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ
The Lord, 'Azza wa Jalla, said: “The Lord and His angels send prayers upon the Prophet: O ye that believe! Send ye prayers upon him and salute him with all respect” (Al-Ahzab 33:56)
قَالَ اللهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ إِنَّ اللهَ وَمَلاَئِكَتَه يُصَلُّوْنَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِيْنَ أمَنُوْا صَلُّوْا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوْا تَسْلِيْمًا
It is related that Rasulullah, Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam, came one day with his face showing signs of good tidings and said: "Gabriel PBUH, came to me and told me "Would it satisfy you, Muhammad, that whenever one of your nation asks for prayers upon you, The Lord sends prayers upon him tenfold and that whenever one of your nation asks for peace and greetings upon You, The Lord will send peace and greetings upon him tenfold."
وَيُرْوى أَنَّ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ جَاءَ ذَاتَ يَوْم وَالْبُشْرى تُرى فِيْ وَجْهِه فَقَالَ اِنَّه جَاءَنِيْ جِبْرِيْلُ عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَمُ فَقَالَ لِي:ْ أَمَا تَرْضَى يَا مُحَمَّدُ أَنْ لاَّ يُصَلِّىَ عَلَيْكَ أَحَدٌ مِّنْ أُمَّتِكَ إِلاَّ سَلَّمْتُ عَلَيْهِ عَشْرًا
And Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: "Whoever of my nation asks for prayers upon me once, ten "hasanat" (good deeds) are written and ten sins are erased from his account, and his level will be elevated ten ranks."
وَقَالَ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: مَنْ صَلّى عَلَىَّ مِنْ أُمَّتِيْ مَرَّةً وَّاحِدَةً كُتِبَتْ لَه عَشْرُ حَسَنَات وَمُحِيَتْ عَنْهُ عَشْرُ سَيّئَاتٍ ورفع له عشر درجات [رواه أحمد والبخاري]ء
And Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: "Whoever asks for prayers upon me once, The Lord will pray upon him 10 times, and whoever asks for prayers upon me 10 times, The Lord will pray upon him 100 times, and whoever asks for prayers upon me 100 times, The Lord will pray upon him 1000 times, and whoever asks for prayers upon me 1000 times, The Lord will forbid his entrance to hell. He will grant him steady say in this world and the after life at the time of questioning, and will get him into heaven. His asking for prayers upon me will be a light for him on the bridge on resurrection day, visible at a distance of 500 years, and The Lord will grant him for every prayer asked a palace in heaven, whether few or many". وَرُوِىَ عَنْهُ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ اَنَّه قَالَ: مَنْ صَلّى عَلَىَّ مَرَّةً وَّاحِدَةً صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ عَشْرَ مَرَّاتٍ، وَّمَنْ صَلّى عَلَىَّ عَشْرَ مَرَّاتٍ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ مِائَةَ مَرَّةٍ، وَمَنْ صَلّى عَلَيَّ مِائَةَ مَرَّةٍ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ اَلْفَ مَرَّةٍ، وَّمَنْ صَلّى عَلَىَّ اَلْفَ مَرَّةٍ حَرَّمَ اللهُ جَسَدَه عَلَى النَّارِ وَثَبَّتَه بِالْقَوْلِ الثَّابِتِ فِى الْحَيوةِ الدُّنْيَا فِى الْاخِرَةِ عِنْدَ الْمَسْئَلَةِ وَاَدْخَلَهُ الْجَنَّةَ وَجَاءَتْ صَلَوَاتُه عَلَىَّ نُوْرٌ لَّه يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ عَلَى الصِّرَاطِ مَسِيْرَةَ خَمْسَمِائَةِ عَامٍ وَّاَعْطَاهُ اللهُ بِكُلِّ صَلوةٍ صَلاَّهَا قَصْرًا فِى الْجَنَّةِ قَلَّ ذلِكَ اَوْكَثُرَ
Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: “Whoever asks for prayers upon me once, The Lord will pray upon him 10 times, and whoever asks for prayers upon me 10 times, The Lord will pray upon him 100 times, and whoever asks for prayers upon me 100 times, The Lord will inscribe between his eyes freedom from hypocrisy and shield from hell, and The Lord will house him with the martyrs on resurrection day.” عَنْ أَنَسِ بْنِ مَالِكٍ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُوْلُ الْلَّهِ صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: "مَنْ صَلَّىَ عَلَىَّ مَرَّةً وَّاحِدَةً صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ عَشْرَ مَرَّاتٍ وَمِنَ صَلَّىَ عَلَىَّ عَشْرَ مَرَّاتٍ صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ مِائَةَ مَرَّةٍ وَمَنْ صَلَّىَ عَلَيَّ مِائَةَ مَرَّةٍ كَتَبَ الْلَّهُ بَيْنَ عَيْنَيْهِ بَرَاءَةً مِنَ الْنِّفَاقِ وَبَرَاءَةً مِنَ الْنَّارِ، وَأَسْكَنَهُ الْلَّهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ مَعَ الْشُّهَدَاءِ"ء
And The Lord, Jalla Jalaluhu, revealed to us the consequences of His prayers upon us in the Glorious Quran: “He is the one who prays upon you, as do His angels, to bring you out of depths of darkness into light, and He was merciful upon the believers.”(33:43) So He, The Mighty and Sublime, will bring us out of deap darkness and grant us His mercy if He prays upon us in return for our prayers upon the prophet Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam. وَلَمَّا يُصَلِّيَ عَلَيْنَا الْرَّحْمَنِ الْرَّحِيْمِ؟ يُخْبِرُنَا بِذَلِكَ جَلَّ جَلَالُهُ بِقَوْلِهِ:هُوَ الَّذِي يُصَلِّي عَلَيْكُمْ وَمَلَائِكَتُهُ لِيُخْرِجَكُمْ مِنْ الظُّلُمَاتِ إِلَى النُّورِ وَكَانَ بِالْمُؤْمِنِينَ رَحِيمًا
Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: "The person most deserving of me on the day of resurrection is the one who asks for prayers upon me the most". قَالَ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: إِنَّ أَوْلَى النَّاسِ بِيْ يوم القيامة أَكْثَرُهُمْ عَلَىَّ صَلَاةً
And Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: "Whoever asks for prayers upon me, angels will continue sending prayers upon him for as long as he does. May he shorten or prolong as he wishes".  وأخرج الأمام أحمد: قَالَ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّم:َ مَنْ صَلّى عَلَىَّ صَلَّتْ عَلَيْهِ الْمَلاَئِكَةُ مَادَامَ يُصَلِّىْ عَلَىَّ فَلْيُقَلِّلْ عِنْدَ ذلِكَ أَوْ لِيُكَثِّرْ
And Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: "Whoever hears the call to prayer and says, ‘O Lord of this beneficial call and this established prayer, please grant Mohammed the means, and the virtue, and the supreme magnitude, and resurrect him to the appreciated status You promised him’, will be granted my intercession on the day of resurrection." وَقَالَ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: مَنْ قَالَ حِيْنَ يَسْمَعُ الْأَذَانَ وَالْإِقَامَةَ اَللّهُمَّ رَبَّ هذِهِ الدَّعْوَةِ النَّافِعَةِ وَالصَّلَوةِ الْقَائِمَةِ أَاتِ مُحَمَّدَ الْوَسِيْلَة وَالْفَضِيْلَةَ وَابْعَثْهُ مَقَامًا مَّحْمُوْدَا الَّذِىْ وَعَدْتَه حَلَّتْ لَه شَفَاعَتِىْ يَوْمَ الْقِيمَةِ  [رواه البخاري في صحيحه]ء
And Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: “If you hear the caller for prayers, repeat what he says, then ask for prayers upon me. For whoever asks for prayers upon me once, The Lord will pray upon him ten times. Then ask The Lord to grant me the means, for it is a status in heaven only befitting one of The Lord’s slaves, and I hope I am him. For whoever asks that I am grated the means will deserve my intercession.” عَنْ عُمَرَ قَالَ سَمِعْتُ رَسُوْلَ الْلَّهِ يَقُوْلُ: { إِذَا سَمِعْتُمْ الْمُؤَذِّنَ فَقُوْلُوْا مِثْلَ مَا يَقُوْلُ وَصَلُّوْا عَلَيَّ فَإِنَّهُ مَنْ صَلَّىَ عَلَيَّ مَرَّةً وَاحِدَةً صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ عَشْرَاًً ثُّمَ سَلُوْا لِيَ الْوَسِيْلَةَ فَإِنَّهَا مَنْزِلَةٌ فِيْ الْجَنَّةِ لَا تَنْبَغِيْ إِلَّا لِعَبْدٍ مِنْ عِبَادِ الْلَّهِ وَأَرْجُوْ أَنْ أَكُوْنَ أَنَا هُوَ فَمَنْ سَأَلَ لِيَ الْوَسِيْلَةَ حَلَّتْ عَلَيْهِ الْشَّفَاعَةُ } [رَوَاهُ مُسْلِمٌ]ء
And Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: "Whoever asks for prayers upon me in a book, angels will continue to pray upon him for as long as my name remains in that book".
وَقَالَ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: مَنْ صَلّى عَلى فِىْ كِتَابٍ لَّمْ تَزَلِ الْمَلاَئِكَةُ تُصَلِّىْ عَلَيْهِ مَادَامَ اسْمِىْ فِىْ ذلِكَ الْكِتَابِ
And Rasulullah Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said, “Who asks for prayers upon me has a light on the Bridge, and whoever has a light on the Bridge will not be among the people in Hell".
وَعَنْ اَبِىْ هُرَيْرَةَ رَضِىَ اللهُ عَنْهُ اَنَّ رَسُوْلَ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ قَالَ: لِلْمُصَلِّىْ عَلَىَّ نُوْرٌ عَلَى الصِّرَاطِ، وَمَنْ كَانَ عَلَى الصِّرَاطِ مِنْ اَهْلِ النُّوْرِ لَمْ يَكُنْ مِّنْ اَهْلِ النَّارِ
And Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: "Gabriel, PBUH came to me and said: ‘O Mohammed, whenever anyone of your nation asks for prayers upon you, seventy thousands angels pray upon him in return, and whoever is prayed upon by angels will be among the people in heaven". وَفِىْ رِوَايَةِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمنِ بْنِ عَوْفٍ رَّضِىَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: جَاءَنِىْ جِبْرِيْلُ عَلَيْهِ السَّلاَمُ فَقَالَ يَا مُحَمَّدُ لاَ يُصَلِّىْ عَلَيْكَ اَحَدٌ مِّنْ اُمَّتِكَ اِلاَّ صَلّى عَلَيْهِ سَبْعُوْنَ اَلْفَ مَلَكٍ وَّمَنْ صَلَّتْ عَلَيْهِ الْمَلاَئِكَةُ كَانَ مِنْ اَهْلِ الْجَنَّةِ
And Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: "I will be visited at the Pool on resurrection day by people I will only identify by their frequent asking for prayers upon me". وَرُوِىَ عَنْهُ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ اَنَّه قَالَ: لَيَرِدَنَّ عَلَىَّ الْحَوْضِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ اَقْوَامٌ مَّا اَعْرِفُهُمْ اِلاَّ بِكَثْرَةِ الصَّلاةِ عَلَىَّ
It is said: "On the pillar of The Throne is written: ‘I have mercy on whoever longs for Me, and I give whoever asks Me. Whoever seeks closeness to Me by asking for prayers upon Mohammed, I forgive his sins, even if as plenty as the foam of the sea". ذُكِرَ فِىْ بَعْضِ الْاَخْبَارِ: مَكْتُوْبٌ عَلى سَاقٍ الْعَرْشِ: مَنِ اشْتَاقَ اِلَىَّ رَحْمَتُه، وَمَنْ سَاَلْنِىْ اَعْطَيْتُه، وَمَنْ تَقَرَّبَ اِلَىَّ بِالصَّلاةِ عَلى مُحَمَّدِ غَفَرْتُ لَه ذُنُوْبَه وَلَوْ كَانَتْ مِثْلَ زَبَدَ الْبَحْرِ
And Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: "Whoever faces a difficult need should increase asking for prayers upon me, for prayers upon me remove worries and anguish and distress, and increase sustenance, and satisfy all demands". وَقَالَ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: مَنْ عَسُرَتْ عَلَيْهِ حَاجَةٌ فَلْيُكَثِّرْ بِالصَّلاةِ عَلَىّ،َ فَاِنَّهَا تَكْشِفُ الْهُمُوْمَ وَالْغُمُوْمَ وَالْكُرُوْبَ وَتُكَثِّرُ الْاَرْزَاقَ وَتَقْضِى الْحَوَائِجَ
And Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam was asked: "Are you aware of the prayers invoked upon you by those who are away from you or those who will come after you?" He replied: "I hear the prayers of those who love me and I know them. The prayers of others are presented to me". وَقِيْلَ لِرَسُوْلِ الله صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: اَرَاَيْتَ صَلاةَ الْمُصَلِّيْنَ عَلَيْكَ مِمَّنْ غَابض عَنْك وَمَنْ يَّاْتِىْ بَعْدَكَ مَا حَالَهُمَا عِنْدَكَ؟ فَقَالَ: اَسْمَعُ صَلوةَ اَهْلِ مَحَبَّتِى وَاَعْرِفُهُمْ وَتُعْرَضُ عَلَىَّ صَلاةُ غَيْرِهِمْ عَرْضًا
Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: “The Lord has roaming angels who relay to me the greetings of my nation.”   عَنْ الْنَّبِيِّ قَالَ: { إِنَّ لِلَّهِ مَلَائِكَةً سَيَّاحِيْنَ يُبَلِّغْونَنِي مِنْ أُمَّتِيْ الْسَّلامَ } [رَوَاهُ الْنَّسَائِيُّ وَالْحَاكِمُ]ء
Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: “You are presented to me with your names and appearances, so ask for prayers upon me in a good way.”
And suffices the person of nobility that his name is mentioned in goodness in front the prophet.
قَالَ رَسُوْلُ الْلَّهِ صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: إِنَّكُمْ تُعْرَضُوْنَ عَلَىَ بِأَسْمَائِكُمْ وَسِيَّمَاكُمْ فَأَحْسِنُوَا الْصَّلاةَ عَلَىّ.
وَكَفَىَ بِالْعَبْدِ نُبْلَاً أَنْ يَذْكَرَ اسْمُهُ بِالْخَيْرِ بَيْنَ يَدَيّ رَسُوْلِ الْلَّهِ
Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: “I had a calling from The Lord that said: ‘Whoever asks for prayers upon you once, The Lord will pray upon him ten times.’” Then a man stood up and asked him: “O RasuluAllah, shall I make half my prayers for you?” He replied “if you wish” the man asked “shall I make two thirds of my prayers for you?” he replied “if you wish”. The man then said “shall I make ALL my prayers for you?” Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam replied: “Then The Lord will attend to all your worries about this world and the after life.”
قَالَ رَسُوْلُ الْلَّهِ : {أَتَانِيَ آَتٍ مِنْ رَبِّيَ فَقَالَ: مَا مِنْ عَبْدٍ يُصَلِّيِ عَلَيْكَ صَلَاةً إِلَا صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ بِهَا عَشْرَاً}
فَقَامَ إِلَيْهِ رَجُلٌ فَقَالَ: يَا رَسُوْلَ الْلَّهِ أَجْعَلُ نِصْفَ دُعَائِي لَكَ! قَالَ: {إِنَّ شِئْتَ}. قَالَ: أَلَا أَجْعَلُ ثُلُثَ دُعَائِي!. قَالَ: {إِنَّ شِئْتَ}. قَالَ: أَلَا أَجْعَلُ دُعَائِي كُلَّهُ قَالَ: {إِذَنْ يَكْفِيَكَ الْلَّهُ هَمَّ الْدُّنْيَا وَالْآَخِرَةِ} [صَحِيْحُ الْأِسْنَادِ].ء
Asking for prayers upon the prophet is reason to steady the person’s feet on the Bridge and for passing it. Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: “I saw one of my nation creeping on the Bridge, sometimes  crawling and sometimes barely hanging. His asking for prayers upon me then came and stood him up and saved him.” وَالْصَّلاةُ عَلَىَ الْرَّسُوْلِ سَبَبٌ لِتَثْبِيْتِ الْقَدَمِ عَلَىَ الْصِّرَاطِ وَالْجَوَازِ عَلَيْهِ لَرُؤْيَا الْنَّبِيِّ وَفِيْهَا: {وَرَأَيْتُ رَجُلاً مِنْ أُمَّتِيْ يَزْحَفُ عَلَىَ الْصِّرَاطِ وَيَحْبُو أَحْيَانَاً وَيَتَعَلَّقُ أَحْيَانَاً، فَجَاءَتْهُ صَلَاتُهُ عَلَيَّ فَأَقَامَتْهُ عَلَىَ قَدَمَيْهِ وَأَنْقَذَتْهُ}ء
And prayers upon the prophet is cause that the he, Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam, greets whoever asks for prayers and greetings upon him after he died. He said: “When anyone greets me, The Lord resurrects my soul so I return his greetings.” وَهِيَ سَبَبٌ فِيْ رَدِّ الْرَّسُوْلَ ـ صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ـ الْسَّلَامُ وَالْصَّلاةُ عَلَىَ الْمُصَلِّى وَالْمُسْلِمَ عَلَيْهِ بَعْدَ وَفَاتِهِ ـ صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ـ لِحَدِيْثٍ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ: "مَا مِنْ أَحَدٍ يُسَلِّمُ عَلَيَّ إِلَا رَدَّ الْلَّهُ عَلَيَّ رُوْحِيْ حَتَّىَ أَرُدَّ عَلَيْهِ الْسَّلامَ" وَحُكْمُ الْسَّلَامِ كَحُكْمِ الصَّلَاةِ
Asking for prayers upon the prophet is among the best and most gracious of deeds  revered by The Lord in this world and in the after-life, and of the most fruitful and beneficial, and through it goodness is sought. Otherwise, how would a lowly mean slave be prayed upon by The Lord and His angels were it not for prayers upon the prophet? فَالصَّلَاةُ عَلَىَ الْنَّبِيِّ صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ هِىَ مِنْ أَبْرَكِ وَأَفْضَلِ الْأَعْمَالِ الْمُقَرَّبَةِ إِلَىَ الْلَّهِ فِىْ الْدُّنْيَا وَالآَخِرَةِ وَأَكْثَرُهَا نَفْعَاً، وَبِهَا يُلْتَمَسُ مَظَانِّ الْخَيْرِ. وَإِلَّا فَمِنْ أَيْنَ لِلْعَبْدِ الْذَّلِيْلِ الْحَقِيرِ أَنْ يُصَلِّى عَلَيْهِ رَبُّهُ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ
Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: “May his nose soil in the dust  who hears my mention and does not ask for prayers upon me.” عَنْ أَبِيْ هُرَيْرَةَ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُوْلُ الْلَّهِ : { رَغِمَ أَنْفُ رَجُلٍ ذُكِرْتُ عِنْدَهُ فَلَمْ يُصَلِّ عَلَيَّ} [رَوَاهُ الْتِّرْمِذِيُّ]ء
And Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: "Suffices a person of miserly that when I am mentioned in his presence, he does not ask for prayers upon me". وعَنْ عَلِيّ بنِ أبِي طَالِب: قَالَ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: بِحَسْبِ الْمَرْءِ مِنَ الْبُخْلِ إِنْ اُذْكَرَ عِنْدَه وَلاَ يُصَلِّىَ عَلى  [أخرجه النسائي والترمذي]ء
And Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: "whoever forgot to ask for prayers upon me has lost his path to heaven.” Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam meant by “forgot” neglect. And if the neglector misses the path to heaven, then the one who remembers is on the right path to heaven. عن ابن عباس: قَالَ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: مَنْ نَّسِىَ الصَّلاةَ عَلَىَّ فَقَدْ اَخْطَأَ طَرِيْقَ الْجَنَّةِ . وَاِنَّمَا اَرَادَ بِالنِّسْيَانِ التَّرْكَ وَاِذَا كَانَ التَّارِكُ يُخْطِئُ طَرِيْقَ الْجَنَّةِ كَانَ الْمُصَلِّىْ عَلَيْهِ سَالِكًا اِلَى الْجَنَّةِ
The Lord ordered us to ask for prayers upon the prophet and to send abundant peace and greetings. He did not set a known timing for this, so a person is dutifully bound to do this plentifully and never fail to remember it. Whoever ignores this is devoid of all goodness. افْتَرَضَ الْلَّهُ عَلَىَ خَلْقِهِ أَنْ يُصَلُّوْا عَلَىَ نَبِيِّهِ وَيُسَلِّمُوْا تَسْلِيْمَاً، وَلَمْ يَجْعَلْ ذَلِكَ لْوَقْتٍ مَعْلُوْمٍ. فَالْوَاجِبُ أَنْ يَكْثُرَ الْمَرْءُ مِنْهَا وَلَا يَغْفَلُ عَنْهَا، وَلَا يُغْفِلُهَا إِلَّا مَنْ لَا خَيْرَ فِيْهِ
Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam heard a man supplicating during  prayer but did not ask for prayers upon the prophet. So Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: “This one was hasty”. And he called him and told him and others: “To ask The Lord, you should start by thanking and praising The Lord, then ask for prayers upon the prophet, then you pray for whatever you wish”. سَمِعَ الْنَّبِيُ رَجُلَاً يَدْعُوَ فِيْ صَلَاتِهِ فَلَمْ يُصَلِّ عَلَىَ الْنَّبِيِّ فَقَالَ الْنَّبِيُّ : {عَجَّلَ هَذَا!} ثُمَّ دَعَاهُ فَقَالَ لَهُ وَلِغَيْرِهِ: {إِذَا صَلَّىَ أَحَدُكُمْ فَلْيَبْدَأْ بِتَحْمِيْدِ الْلَّهِ وَالْثَّنَاءِ عَلَيْهِ، ثُمَّ يُصَلِّي عَلَىَ الْنَّبِيِّ، ثُمَّ لْيَدْعُ بَعْدُ بِمَا يَشَاءُ} [رَوَاهُ أَبُوْ دَاوُدَ وَالْتِّرْمِذِيُّ].ء
Abu Suleiman Ad-Darani said: "Whoever wishes to request something from The Lord, should increase asking for prayers upon the prophet, Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam, and then ask The Lord his request and then end his request by asking for prayers upon the prophet Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam. For Allah will accept the two requests for prayers upon the prophet, and He is more Noble than to refuse to grant what is between them”. وَقَالَ اَبُوْ سُلَيْمَانَ الدَّارَانِىُّ مَنْ اَرَادَ اَنْ يَّسْأَلَ اللهُ حَاجَتَه فَلْيُكْثِرْ بِالصَّلاةِ عَلَى النَّبِىِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ثُمَّ يَسْألُ اللهُ حَاجَتَه وَلْيَخْتِمْ بِالصَّلاةِ عَلَى النَّبِىِّ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ فَاِنَّ اللهَ يَقْبَلُ الصَّلاتَيْنِ وَهُوَ اَكْرَمُ مِنْ اَنْ يَّدَعَ مَا بَيْنَهُمَا
Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: “Supplications are held back until the worshiper asks for prayers upon the prophet.” وَقَدْ وَرَدَ فِيْ الْحَدِيْثِ: {الْدُّعَاءُ مَحْجُوْبٌ حَتَّىَ يُصَلِّيَ الْدَّاعِيَ عَلَىَ الْنَّبِيِّ} [رَوَاهُ الْطَّبَرَانِيُّ ]ء
Ibn Ataa’ said: supplications have pillars and wings and means and timings. If a supplication or prayers finds its pillars it becomes stronger. If it finds its wings it flies through he skies. If it finds its timings it wins. And if it finds its means it succeeds. Its pillars are dedication, delicacy, humility, devoutness, and  clinging to The Lord. Its wings are truthfulness. Its timings are early hours of the day. And its means are asking for prayers upon the prophet. وَقَالَ ابْنُ عَطَاء: {لِلْدُّعَاءِ أَرْكَانٌ وَأَجْنِحَةٌ وَأَسْبَابٌ وَأَوْقَاتٌ. فَإِنْ وَافَقَ أَرْكَانَهُ قَوِيَ، وَإِنْ وَافَقَ أَجْنِحَتَهِ طَارَ فِيْ الْسَّمَاءِ، وَإِنْ وَافَقَ مَوَاقِيْتَهُ فَازَ، وَإِنْ وَافَقَ أَسْبَابَهِ نَجَحَ.فَأَرْكَانُهُ: حُضُوْرُ الْقَلْبِ وَالْرِّقَّةُ وَالِاسْتِكَانَةُ وَالْخُشُوْعُ وَتُعَلُّقُ الْقَلْبِ بِاللَّهِ وَقَطْعِهِ الْأَسْبَابُ، وَأَجْنِحَتُهُ الْصِّدْقُ، وَمَوَاقِيْتُهُ الْأَسْحَارُ، وَأَسْبَابُهُ الصَّلَاةُ عَلَىَ الْنَّبِيِّ}ء
Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: “Fridays are among the best of your days, so ask plentifully for prayers upon me on Fridays, for your prayers are presented to me.” قَالَ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : إن من أفضل أيامكم يوم الجمعة فاَكْثِرُوا الصَّلَاةَ عَلَىَّ يَوْمَ الْجُمُعَةِ  فإن صلاتكم معروضة عليّ [أخرجه أحمد]ء
And Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: "Whoever asks for prayers upon me 100 times on a Friday will be forgiven sins of eighty years".
 وَرُوِىَ عَنْهُ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ اَنَّه قَالَ: مَنْ صَلّى عَلَىَّ يَوْمَ الْجُمُعَةِ مِائَةَ مَرَّةٍ غُفِرَتْ لَه خَطِيْئَةُ ثَمَانِيْنَ سَنَةً
And Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: “Whoever asks for prayers upon me 100 times on a Friday will have a light on resurrection day that is sufficient to shine for all people.” وَعَنْ عَلِىِّ بْنِ اَبِىْ طَالِبٍ رَضِىَ اللهُ عَنْهُ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُوْلُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: مَنْ صَلّى عَلَىَّ يَوْمَ الْجُمُعَةِ مِائَةَ مَرَّةٍ جَاءَ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَمَعَه نُوْرٌ لَّوْ قُسِمَ ذلِكَ النُّوْرُ بَيْنَ الْخَلْقِ كُلِّهِمْ لَوَسِعَهُمْ
Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam told Fatima: “If you enter the mosque, say ‘In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful, and peace and greetings upon the messenger of The Lord. O Lord please send prayers upon Mohammed and the family of Mohammed, and forgive us and ease for us the doors to Your Mercy.’ and when you are leaving say the same except ‘ease for us the doors to Your Grace.’” عَنْ فَاطِمَةَ رَضِيَ الْلَّهُ عَنْهَا قَالَتْ: قَالَ رَسُوْلُ الْلَّهِ : {إِذَا دَخَلْتِ الْمَسْجِدَ فَقُوْلِيْ بِسْمِ الْلَّهِ الْرَّحْمَنِ الْرَّحِيْمِ وَالْسَّلامُ عَلَىَ رَسُوْلِ الْلَّهِ الْلَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَىَ آَلِ مُحَمِّدٍ وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا وَسَهِّلِ لَنَا أَبْوَابَ رَحْمَتِكَ فَإِذَا فَرَغْتِ فَقُوْلِيْ ذَلِكَ غَيْرَ أَنَّ قَوْلِيْ: وَسَهِّلِ لَنَا أَبْوَابَ فَضْلِكََ} [رَوَاهُ ابْنُ مَاجَهْ وَالْتِّرْمِذِيُّ]ء
In general, asking for prayers upon the prophet Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam is reason for: prayers from The Lord and His angels, and forgiveness of sins, and veneration of deeds, and elevation of ranks, and answering prayers, and The Lord attending to worries of this world and the after life, and freedom from hypocrisy, and shield from hell, and for being among those most worthy of the prophet Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam on the day of resurrection, and The Lord housing him with the martyrs. مِنْ فَضَائِلِ الْصَّلاةِ عَلَىَ الْنَّبِىِّ صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: صَلَاةُ الْلَّهُ تَعَالَىْ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ عَلَىَ مَنْ صَلَّىَ عَلَيْهِ، وَتَكْفِيْرُ الْذُّنُوبِ، وَتَزْكِيَةُ الْأَعْمَالِ، وَرَفَعُ الْدَّرَجَاتِ، وَإِجَابَةُ الْدُّعَاءِ، وَكِفَايَةُ هُمُّ الْدُّنْيَا وَالآَخِرَةِ، وَالْبَرَاءَةُ مِنْ الْنِّفَاقِ، وَالْعِتْقُ مِنَ الْنَّارِ، وَكَانَ صَاحِبُهَا مِنْ أَوْلَىَ الْنَّاسِ بِهِ، صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ وَاسْكَنَهُ الْلَّهُ مَعَ الْشُّهَدَاءِ
The Lord, Mighty and Sublime is He, said: “The Lord and His angels send prayers upon the Prophet: O ye that believe! Send ye prayers upon him and salute him with all respect” (Al-Ahzab 33:56). So it is better to link prayers with salutations, in obedience to The Lord’s directive. This is how prayers should be asked for. قال الله تعالى: إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيما [الأحزاب:56] فَالَأَفْضَلُ أَنْ تُقْرِنَ الصَّلَاةَ وَالْسَّلامَ سَوِيّا ًاسْتِجَابَةً لِلَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ فَهَذَا هُوَ الْمُجْزِئُ فِيْ صِفَةِ الصَّلَاةِ، عَلَيْهِ الْصَّلاةُ وَالْسَّلامُ
Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam was asked: We have known how to greet you (by saying "AsSalamu Alayka Wa Rahmatu Allahi Wa Barakatuh" or May peace be upon you and The Lord’s mercy and blessings), but how do we ask for prayers upon you? Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam said: “Say: ‘O Lord, please send prayers upon Mohammed and his family as You sent prayers upon Ibrahim, and bless Mohammed an his family as You blessed Ibrahim, for You are Praiseworthy and Glorious.’” وسُئِلَ رسولُ اللهِ صلّى اللهُ عليهِ وسلم:  يَا رَسُوْلَ الْلَّهِ قَدْ عَلِمْنَا كَيْفَ نُسَلِّمُ عَلَيْكَ فَكَيْفَ نُصَلِّي عَلَيْكَ؟ فَقَالَ: { قُوْلُوْا الْلَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَىَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَىَ أَزْوَاجِهِ وَذُرِّيَّتِهِ كَمَا صَلَّيْتَ عَلَىَ إِبْرَاهِيْمَ، وَبَارِكْ عَلَىَ مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَىَ أَزْوَاجِهِ كَمَا بَارَكْتَ عَلَىَ إِبْرَاهِيْمَ، إِنَّكَ حَمِيْدٌ مَجِيْدٌ } [مُتَّفَقٌ عَلَيْهِ]ء
How to ask for prayers upon the prophet is by no means limited to a set script, and whoever The Lord bestows upon eloquence so he can clarify and magnify the meaning and the purpose in fluent and expressive and meaningful words clarifying the prophets honorable status Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam should do so.
كَيْفِيَّةِ الْصَّلاةِ عَلَيْهِ صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَا يُوُقَفُ فِيْهَا مَعَ الْنُّصُوصِ وَأَنَّ مَنْ رَزَقَهُ الْلَّهُ تَعَالَىْ بَيَانَاً فَأَبَانَ عَنْ الْمَعَانِى بِالْأَلْفَاظِ الْفَصِيحَةِ الْمَبَانِى الْصَّرِيْحَةِ الْمَعَانِى مِمَّا يُعْرِبُ عَنْ كَمَالِ شَرَفِهِ صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ وَعَظِيمِ حُرْمَتِهِ فَلَهُ ذَلِكَ
There are many differnt forms and scripts for asking for prayers upon the prophet Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam. It is The Lord, Mighty and Sublime is He who actually is praying. We can only ask The Lord to send prayers upon him, because of our inability to grasp the essence of praying upon him Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam, and our inability to appreciate his status with The Lord.  وَصِيَغُ الصَّلَاةِ عَلَيْهِ صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ تَخْتَلِفُ خَوَاصُّهَا وَتَتَفَاضَلَ. وَالْمُصَلَّى الْحَقِيقِيَّ عَلَىَ الْنَّبِيِّ صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ هُوَ الْلَّهُ سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىْ، أَمَّا نَحْنُ فَإِنَّمَا نَطْلُبُ مِنْ الْحَقِّ سُبْحَانَهُ وَتَعَالَىْ أَنْ يُصَلَّىَ عَلَىَ نَبِيِّهِ لِعَجْزِنَا عَنْ إِدْرَاكِ كُنْهِ الصَّلَاةِ عَلَيْهِ، صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، أَوْ أِدْرَاكِ فَضْلِهِ وَمَقَامِهِ عِنْدَ رَبِّهِ
And it is said: When The Lord ordered us to “pray upon” the prophet Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam, we were not able to reach the knowledge of how to do so or its meaning, or The Lord’s actual desire of how to do this, so we referred it to The Lord, Glorified and Mighty is He, and we said O Lord, You send Your prayers upon Your prophet, for You know what he deserves and what befits him, and what You intend by prayers upon him, Sallallahu ‘alaihi wa Sallam.  وَقَدْ قِيَلَ: لَمَّا أَمَرَنَا الْلَّهُ تَعَالَىْ بِالْصَّلاةِ عَلَىَ نَبِيِّهِ صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ لَمْ نَبْلُغَ مَعْرِفَةَ فَضْلِهَا وَلَمْ نُدْرِكَ حَقِيْقَةَ مُرَادِ الْلَّهِ فِيْهِ فَأَحَلْنَا ذَلِكَ إِلَىَ الْلَّهِ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ فَقُلْنَا الْلَّهُمَّ صَلِّ أَنْتَ عَلَىَ رَسُوْلِكَ لِأَنَّكَ أَعْلَمُ بِمَا يَلِيْقُ بِهِ وَبِمَا أَرَدْتَهُ لَهُ صَلَّىَ الْلَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ
