Salaat al-`Aali al-Qadr

اَللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ وَسَلِّمْ وَبَارِكَ عَلَى سَيِّدِنَا مُحَمَّدٍ الْنَّبِيِّ الْأُمِّيِّ الْحَبِيبِ الْعَالِي الْقَدْرِ الْعَظِيمِ الْجَاهِ وَعَلَى آلِهِ وَصَحْبِهِ وَسَلِّمْ

Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik `alaa Sayyidina Muhammad an-Nabiyyi 'l-Umiyy al-Habeebi 'l-`alil-qadri 'l-`azheemi 'l-jaahi wa `alaa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallim.

As mentioned by Shaykh Muhammad Hisham Kabbani (qs) and many other awliyaullah, from the Sharh Salawat ad-Dardir al-`allamah as-Saawi, reciting this salawat will eliminate claustrophobia and bring ease to you in the grave. It will also remove the fear of the interrogating angels, Munkar and Nakir. It is mentioned that whoever recites this salawat once every Friday, upon his death Prophet will go with him to his burial and bury him with his own blessed hands!

Numerous awliyaullah have said, "Whoever recites it even once on Friday or from Thursday evening onward, Allah will allow his soul to see the Exemplar of All Souls ," not only when his soul is leaving the body, but also when he is taken to the grave, until he sees the Prophet is the one taking care of him in that grave.

Awliyaullah say to be consistent in reading as-Salaat al-`Aali al-Qadr ten times daily and once on the night of Jumu`ah will bring you khayr al-jaseem, the uncountable good that comes from it. Also, the book Fath ar-Rasool states that who reads it ten times after `Isha will be rewarded as if they recited it all night.

O Allah exalt and greet and bless our master Muhammad the Unlettered Prophet, the Beloved of Highest Value, Possessing Immense Status and on his family and companions and send them peace.
