Foreword

Praise be to Allah and blessings and peace be upon our master Muhammad, his family and his Companions.

The Shaykh, the Imam, the Great Saint, the Renowned Pole, the Sultan of the Near Ones and Pole of the True Ones, The Master of the Gnostics, the Possessor of Open Miracles and Abundant Secrets, Sayydi Abu Abdullah Muhammad ibn Suleyman Al-Jazuil, may Allah be pleased with him, said:

Praise be Allah who has guided us to faith and to Islam. And blessings and peace be upon our Master Muhammad, His prophet who has delivered us from worshipping graven images and idols.

The subject of this book is remembering to ask for blessings upon the Prophet, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him, and its benefits. We mention the traditions without the chains of transmission in order to make it easier for the reader to memorise them, this being one of the important essentials for the one seeking nearness to the Lord of Lords.

I have named this book The Index of Good Things and the Advent of Blazing Lights in the Remembering to ask for Blessings upon the Chosen Prophet desiring the pleasure of Allah the Exalted and love for His Noble Messenger, our master Muhammad, Allah’s blessings and abundant peace be upon him.

And Allah is responsible for making us follow his way, and making us love the perfect ones, for He is Able to do this. There is no god save He and there is no good save His good. And He is the best Protector and best Helper. And there is no help nor power save through Allah the High, the Mighty.

The Benefit of Requesting Blessings upon the Prophet, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him.

Allah, Mighty and Sublime is He, said:"Verily, Allah and His angels bless the Prophet. O you who believe, ask (Allah) to bless him and grant him abundant peace".

And it is related that the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him, came one day with signs of good tidings visible upon his face. He said:"Lo, Gabriel, peace be upon him, said to me,"Are you not pleased, O Muhammad, that whenever one of your nation asks Allah to bless you, Allah will bless him tenfold and that whenever one of your nation asks Allah to grant you peace, Allah will grant peace tenfold."

And he said, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him:"The nearest person to me is the one who asks for blessings upon me the most".

And he said, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him:"Whoever asks for blessings upon me, angels are blessings him for long as he asks, be it for a short time, be it for a long time".

And he said, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him:"A person is considered a miser if, when I am mentioned in his presence, he fails to ask blessings upon me".

And he said, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him:"Ask for more blessings upon me on Fridays".

And he said, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him:"Whoever of my nation asks for blessings upon me once, ten good deeds are written down for him and ten sins are erased."

And he said, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him:"Whoever hears the call to Prayer and says, ‘O Allah, Lord of this perfect call and this established prayer grant Muhammad the Closet Access, the Pre-Eminence, the Lofty Rank and send him to the Most Praised Station which You have promised him’, my intercession for him will be binding on the Day of Resurrection."

And he said, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him: "Whoever asks for blessings upon me in a book, the angels bless him for as long as my name is in that book".

And Abu Suleiman Ad-Darani said:"Whoever wishes to request something from Allah, let him increase his asking for blessings upon the Prophet, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him, and then he may ask Allah about his affair and then seal his request by once more asking for blessings upon the Prophet, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him. For Allah will accept the two requests for blessings upon the Prophet and this is something more noble than whatever he asks for in between".

And it is related that he said, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him: "Whoever asks Allah one hundred times to bless me on a Friday will be forgiven the sins of eighty years".

And Abu Huraira, may Allah be pleased with him, said:"The Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him, said, ‘For the one asks for blessings upon me there is a light on the Bridge, and whoever is on the Bridge from the People of Light will not be among the People of the Fire".

And he said, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him:"Whoever deliberately neglects to ask for blessings upon me has missed the path to The Garden, for the route to The Garden is barred for such a neglectful one, whereas it is open for him who asks blessings upon me".

It is related by ‘Abdurraham ibn’ Awf, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him:"Gabriel, peace be upon be him said,’ O Muhammad, whenever someone from your nation asks for blessings upon you, seventy thousands angels bless him, and whoever is blessed by angels is one of the People of The Garden".

And he said, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him: "The more you ask for the blessings upon me, the more you will have in The Garden"

It is related that he said, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him: "Whenever someone asks for blessings upon me, extolling my right, Allah, Mighty and Sublime is He, creates from his words an angel with wings stretching from the East to the West, with feet connected to the nethermost part of the seventh earth and a neck bent beneath The Throne. Allah, Mighty and Sublime is He, Says to him, ‘Bless My slave as he asks for blessings upon My Prophet and thereupon the angel will bless him until the Day of Resurrection".

It is related that he said, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him:"There will come to my Pool on the Day of Resurrection nations I will only know because of their frequent asking for blessings upon me".

It is related that he said, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him:"Whoever asks Allah to bless me, Allah will bless him ten times, and whoever asks ten times to bless me, Allah will bless him one hundred times, and whoever asks Allah one hundred times to bless me, Allah will bless him one thousand times, and whoever asks Allah to bless me one thousand times, Allah will prohibit The Fire from touching his body, his word on any matter will be made enduring in this world and the next, he will enter The Garden, on the Day of Resurrection his request for blessings upon me will be a light for him on The Bridge, a light visible at a distance of five hundred years, and Allah will grant him for every blessing upon me asked for a palace in The Garden, regardless of how many".

And the Prophet said, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him:"Whenever a slave asks for blessings upon me, his request leaves him quickly and passes over land and sea, through East and West, saying ‘I am the blessing upon Muhammad, the Chosen One, the Best of Allah’s Creation, asked for by so and so’ and everything asks for blessings upon him. A bird is created from these blessings with seventy thousand wings, each of which has seventy thousand feathers. Each of the feathers has seventy thousand heads on each of which are seventy thousands faces. Each face has seventy thousands mouths and in every mouth there are seventy thousand tongues. Each tongue glorifies Allah the exalted in seventy thousand languages and Allah will then write for him the reward for all of that"

Ali ibn abi Talib, may Allah be pleased with him, said:"The Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him, said, ‘Whoever asks Allah one hundred times on a Friday to bless me, a light will come for him on the Day of Resurrection, a light which, were it to be divided among them, would be enough for the whole of creation"’.

It is mentioned in the good tidings:"It is written on the leg of The Throne ‘Whoever yearns for Me, I am merciful to him. Whoever asks Me, I will grant him wish. Whoever draws nearto Me, by asking for blessings upon My Beloved Muhammad, I will forgive him, even if his sins were as plentiful as the foam on the surface of the ocean"’.

And it is related by one of the Companions, may Allah be pleased with them all,: "There is no gathering in which blessings upon Muhammad, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him, are asked for but that a beautiful fragrance rises from it which reaches the clouds in the sky and the angels say, ‘This is a gathering in which blessings upon Muhammad, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him, are being asked for"’.

Other reports mention that:"The Gates of the Heavens are opened for a believing slave, male or female, who begins by asking for blessings upon Muhammad, and the Pavilions are opened as far as The Throne, and all the angels bless Muhammad, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him, and ask for forgiveness for that slave for as long as Allah wishes".

And he said, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him:"Whoever is troubled by some matter should increase his asking for the blessings upon me, and that will remove his anxieties, his sorrows and cares and will increase his provision and satisfy all his needs".

And one of the Righteous said:"A neighbour of mine was a scribe and he died. I saw him in a dream and asked him how Allah had treated him. He replied, ‘ He had forgiven me’. I said, ‘For what reason has He forgiven you?’and he replied,‘Whenever I wrote the name of Muhammad, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him, in a book, I asked Allah to bless him and thus My Lord has given me what no eye has ever seen, no ear has ever heard and what no mortal has ever imagined’".

And it is related from Anas, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him:"None of you truly believe until I am dearer to him than his own self, his wealth, his children, his parents and all other people".

And it is related in the Tradition of Umar, may Allah be pleased with him, that he said.

"You are dearer to me, O Messenger of Allah, than everything I possess except my own self which is within me". The Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him, replied:"You will not be a believer until I am dearer to you than your own self" Umar said: "By Him who revealed to you the Book, you are dearer to me than my own self". The Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him, said to him:

"Now, O Umar, your faith is complete".

And it was asked of the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him. "When will I attain faith?" (and in another version "When will I attain true faith") He replied:"When you love Allah" it was said:"And when will I love Allah?" He said:" When you love His Messenger?" it was said:"And when will I love His Messenger?" He said: "When you follow his path, adhere to his way, love what he loves and hate what he hates, befriend whom he befriends and oppose whom he opposes – and people will be distinguished one from another in their unbelief according to their hate for me".

Can there be faith for the one who has no love for him?

Can there be faith for the one who has no love for him?

Can there be faith for the one who has no love for him?

It was said to the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him:"We see believers who are humble and believers who are not humble. What is the reason for this?" He said:"The one finds his faith adorned with humility whilst the does not". It was said: "How can we find such faith, or obtain it or earn it?" He replied:"By sincerely loving Allah". It was said:"How can the love of Allah be found or earned?" He said:"By loving His Messenger. So seek out the pleasure of Allah and the pleasure of His Messenger by loving Them".

And it was said to the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him: "Who are the family of Muhammad whom we are ordered to love and honour and treat with reverence?" He replied:" The People of purity and fidelity, who believe in me sincerely". It was said:"What are their signs?" He said:"The traces of my love are on every lover and their inner life is busy with remembering me and remembering Allah" (In another version the words are:"Their signs are being addicted to remembering me and constantly asking for blessings upon me".)

It was said to the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him:"Who is he who is strong in his love for you?" He replied:"The one who believes in me without seeing me for he is a believer in me through yearning and is sincere in his love for me. A sign of this is that he desires a vision of me more than anything he owns (in another version the words are:"…than all the gold in the world") This is a true believer in me whose love for me is true and sincere".

It was said to the Messenger of Allah, Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him:"Are you aware of the blessings upon you asked for by those who are not with you or by those who will come after you? What is their state regarding you?" He replied:"I hear the blessings of the people who love me and I know them. And the blessings of others than them are presented to me".

The Description of the Rawdah

(the tomb of the Prophet, Allah's blessing and peace be upon him)

This is a description of the Rawdah (Paradisal Garden) in the which are buried the Messenger of Allah, Allah's blessings and peace be upon him, and his Companions, Abu Bakr and Umar, may Allah be pleased with them both. Thus Urwa ibn az-Zubaiyr, may Allah be pleased with him, mentioned :"The Messenger of Allah, Allah's blessings and peace be upon him, is buried in an alcove, and Abu Bakr, may Allah be pleased with him, is behind the Messenger of Allah, Allah's blessings and peace be upon him, Umar ibn Khattab, May Allah be pleased wit him, is buried at the feet of the Abu Bakr and the eastern side of the alcove is left empty. There is a place for another tomb. They say, and Allah Knows Best, that 'Isa ibn Mariam , peace be upon him, will be buried there, and this part of the good news brought by the Messenger of Allah, Allah's blessings and peace be upon him".

'Aisha, may Allah be pleased with her, said:"I saw three moons falling into my room. I told my vision to Abu Bakr, may Allah be pleased with him. He told me, 'O 'Aisha, there will be three buried in your house. They are better than all the people of the earth'. When the Messenger of Allah, Allah's blessings and peace be upon him, passed away, he was buried in my house, Abu Bakr, may Allah be pleased with him, said to me, 'This is one your moons and he is the best of them, Allah's blessings and peace be upon him and his family"
