Increasing Salutations upon the Prophet

عَنْ أَبِى أُمَامَةَ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم أَكْثِرُوا عَلَىَّ مِنَ الصَّلاَةِ فِى كُلِّ يَوْمِ جُمُعَةٍ فَإِنَّ صَلاَةَ أُمَّتِى تُعْرَضُ عَلَىَّ فِى كُلِّ يَوْمِ جُمُعَةٍ ، فَمَنْ كَانَ أَكْثَرَهُمْ عَلَىَّ صَلاَةً كَانَ أَقْرَبَهُمْ مِنِّى مَنْزِلَة

From Abi Umamah who said: The Messenger (pbuh) said: ‘Send a great deal of your salutations upon me on Fridays for salutations from my Ummah is shown to me on Fridays. Ones who send the most salutations are those who are closest to me in abode’ (al-Baihaqi, Sunan al-Kubra, 3/249, No. 6208)

Lessons:

1. Among that which is encouraged on Friday is to say salutations upon the Messenger (pbuh) beyond one’s normal practice.

2. A mukmin whose place is closest to the Messenger is one who salutes him the most.

Let us all say our salutations upon the Messenger (pbuh) every blessed Friday!
