Salat & Salam: In Praise of Allah's Most Beloved
A Manual of Blessings & Peace on the Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace)

Based on the works of Shaykh Muhammad ibn 'Abd al-Rahman al-Sakhawi, Shaykh Ashraf 'Ali Thanawi, Shaykh Yusuf ibn Sulayman Motala, and Makhdum Muhammad Sindhi. Compiled and Translated with an Introduction by Abdur-Rahman ibn Yusuf

"A Perfect Companion Book to Prayers for Forgiveness"

The greatest source of blessings and mercy for the Muslim and for all of mankind is Muhammad, the Beloved Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace), sent as a Mercy to the Worlds. Muslims, as the most privileged recipients of this mercy, are required to invoke blessings (salat) upon him, and doing so holds great reward; the Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace) said, "Whoever sends one blessing upon me, Allah will send ten blessings upon him." (Muslim). Abu Muhammad al-Marjani says, €œYour invoking blessings upon him is in reality praying for yourself since the benefits of it are returning to you."

According to the hadith master, Shams al-Din al-Sakhawi, the benefits of sending blessings on Allah's Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace) are numerous: Allah, His angels, and His Messenger send mercy upon the one who invokes blessings. Such a person's wrongdoings are expiated, his good deeds increased and purified, and his status elevated. Whoever makes it his complete regimen by day and night, both his worldly and otherworldly matters are taken care of. He is shown his abode in Paradise before his death, his wealth is increased, and more than one hundred needs of his are fulfilled . . .

This short manual consists of fifty invocations of blessings upon the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace), most transmitted from the Messenger s himself. It also includes another ninety-nine invocations, composed by Shaykh Yusuf Motala, which beautifully couple the Names of Allah with attributes of His Beloved Messenger (Allah bless him and give him peace). Set out in vowelled Arabic script, with facing English translation, this handy edition also includes transliteration for ease of use.

 

Prayers for Forgiveness
Hasan al-Basri (Translated by Abdurrahman Ibn Yusuf)

The act of seeking forgiveness is what gives us the opening we need after feeling ­overwhelmed by the burden of sin. Forgiveness means a way out, a second chance, a feeling of hope with which to turn a new page in life. It is through the seeking of forgiveness that we begin to understand that there is no reason whatsoever to despair of the mercy of Allah. Islam encourages us to not run away in fear of Allah but rather to turn toward Allah the same way a baby would run into its mother's lap. So lovingly does Allah, Most High, address His sinful servants: €œSay (to humanity, O Muhammad): O My servants-those (of you) who have committed (sins in great) excess against their own souls-never despair of the mercy of Allah! For, indeed, Allah forgives sins, one and all. Indeed, it is He who is the All-Forgiving, the Mercy-Giving. So turn in penitence to your Lord. And submit yourselves to Him." (al-Qur'an 39:53)

The author
This collection of seventy prayers for forgiveness [istighfarat] is attributed to one of the greatest spiritual luminaries of the past, Hasan al-Ba.ri, and it has been presented here to offer a way for us to navigate through the complications and pitfalls of this life. Set out in Arabic script, with adjoining translation in English, this edition also includes transliteration of the prayers to facilitate reading for those who are not so well-versed in Arabic.
