salat -salam


100 Salaatus-Salam
With 99 Names of Allah (Asmaaul-Husnaa) and 99 Attributes of Prophet Muhammad - May Allah send His peace and blessings him (Alqaabe-Nabawiyyah)
Foreword By The Compiler
Hazrat Shaykhul-Hadith Maulana Yusuf Motala Sahib
Distinguished Khalifah of Hazrat Shaykhul-Hadith Maulana Muhammad Zakariyya Sahib rahmatullahi alai
In the Name of Allah, the most compassionate, the Most Merciful.
All praises be to Allah, Lord of the worlds and peace and blessings upon the leader of all the prophets, the leader of the God fearing, the master of those whose faces will be shining on the day of Judgement, and peace upon all his descendents and companions.
Thereafter, the fervour and states of individuals arriving at the auspicious grave of the leader of both the worlds, pride of the universe, the best being to have walked upon the earth at anytime, mercy of both worlds Sallallahu alayhi wassalam, can be witnessed to be varying. Some, after presenting the renowned words of Salaat ‘o' Salaam (peace and blessings) in respect and fear, remain silent, stunned.
Silence is a sign of true love. How can speaking in the presence of the beloved be beneficial.
Others, with difficulty try to control their trembling feet and string couplets full of deep love culminating into strings of tears rolling down their cheeks.
Your glance, O Prophet! Your glance. If not constantly at least occasionally.
The Salaat 'o' Salaam narrated from the Sahabah radiallahu anhum are very few. Thus the choice of words adopted by the scholars following the Sahabah radiyallah anhum are mostly recited. These collections comprise of rhymes and rhythmical patterns which increase the desire and the yearning of the reader. It also becomes a means of fluent recitation and makes it easier for memorisation.
The Salaat 'o' Salaam compiled in this small booklet are based upon the ninety-nine names of Allah known as Asma-e-Husna regarding which the Prophet Sallallahu alayhi wassalam says, “Allah has ninety nine names whosoever memorises them will enter paradise” {Sahi Bukhari}.
The blessed attributes and names of the Holy Prophet Sallahu Alayhi Wasallam which have been narrated by the scholars, mashaaikh and authors of seerah, have been presented alongside Asma-e-Husna in this booklet. More than sixty blessed attributes of the Holy Prophet Sallahu Alayhi Wasallam have been taken from Allam a Sakhawee's book Al-Qawlul Badee and the remainder from other Islamic texts. Whenever the blessed name of the Holy Prophet Sallahu Alayhi Wasallam could not be matched in rhyme with Allah's blessed names then an attribute was not formed by me but rather the rhythmical pattern was discontinued.
For some time I had been reciting these words of Salaat 'o' Salaam so when some of the pious acclaimed them and added words of encouragement I thought that if this collection of Salaat ‘o' Salaam was to be published then it would be easier to present as gift to those interested. This was the cause of this book being published..
I would like to give a few words of advice regarding this booklet:
1. You will not only be rewarded for the recitation of Salaat 'o' Salaam but there is also a separate reward for the recitation of Asma-e-Husna.
2. Through the frequent recitation of this collection, Asma-e- Husna can be memorised regarding which encouragement has been narrated.
3. Frequent recitation of the Holy Prophet Sallahu Alyhi Wasallam's blessed attributes increases respect and love for the Holy Prophet Sallahu Alayhi Wasallam, which is an Islamic requirement.
4. There are some attributes of the Holy Prophet Sallahu Alayhi Wasallam, which are also found among the Asma-e-Husna. No polytheistic association with the attributes of Allah should be suspected because, where 'compassionate' (Raheem) and `affectionate`(Rauf) are from Asmsa-e-Husna they have also been ascribed to the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam in the Holy Qur'an. Almighty Allah says,”…compassionate, affectionate to the believers”. {9:128}
On the contrary some attributes of Allah have even been used in conjunction with others besides Allah in both the Quran and Hadith. Allah says “verily, we have created man from Nutfah, drops of mixed semen (discharge of men and women), in order to try him, so We made him Samee (hearing), Baseer (seeing).”{76:2}
In this verse, every human being is referred to as ‘Samee' and ‘Baseer' although these are from among the seven core attributes of Allah. It should beremembered that when theses attributes are ascribed to Allah the belief should be that these are Allah's natural attributes, and when these attributes are used to characterise the creation then it is necessary to believe that these attributes are not innate but are God given. Furthermore, the blessed attributes mentioned here are solely supplications for the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, which negates the association of attributes with Allah.
May Almighty Allah, grace the complier, the publisher and the readers with favours and blessings of Salaat ‘o' Salaam and may He make it the means of increase nearness and love for the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam.
There is no specific time for the recitation of the collection, it may be recited before or after Fajar or Maghrib Sallah, before the recitation of the Quran or before supplication for any need.
May Allah's blessings be upon our Master Muhamad Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam, his descendants and his companions.
