السلام عليكم ورحمة الله تعلى وبركاته

وكلهم من رسول الله ملتمس

غرفا من البحر أو رشفا من الديم

All are partaking from the blessings of the Prophet (ﷺ)

either in handfuls from the ocean

or in sips of morning dew

وَلَوْ أَنَّهُمْ إِذ ظَّلَمُواْ أَنفُسَهُمْ جَآؤُوكَ فَاسْتَغْفَرُواْ اللّهَ وَاسْتَغْفَرَ لَهُمُ الرَّسُولُ لَوَجَدُواْ اللّهَ تَوَّابًا رَّحِيمًا

If, then, after having sinned against themselves, they would but come to thee (O Muhammad) and asked Allah to forgive them - with the Prophet, too, praying that they be forgiven - they would assuredly have found Allah Forgiving, Merciful. (Surat an-Nisa, 4:64)

كلمتان خفيفتان على اللسان ثقيلتان في الميزان، سبحان الله وبحمده سبحان الله العظيم

The Prophet of Allah (ﷺ) said, "There are two statements that are light for the tongue to remember, heavy in the Scales and are dear to the Merciful: 'Subhan-Allahi wa bi-hamdihi, Subhan-Allahi 'l-`Azheem - Glory be to Allah and His is the praise, Allah, the Greatest is free from imperfection]'." (Bukhari and Muslim)

[and add to it: Istaghfirullah]

O Muslims! Habeeb ur-Rahman, the Beloved of the Most Merciful, Sayyidina Muhammad (ﷺ) Raeesu’l-jinni wa’l-ins, the Leader of Jinn and Humankind, and all things that Allah swt created.

He is the one who granted to His Prophet (ﷺ) a Station that astonishes the reciters, the saints and the prophets and astonishes those who are responsible for all things, and he (ﷺ) is the First in His Creation and he is the Second in His love and he is the Third in his love to the Ummah .

He masha Allah made the Person of the Prophet (ﷺ) as an exemption from punishment for all the Muhammadan Ummah.

We say on this occasion, "O Muslims what is going on?" Masha Allah. And that is the love to Allah and love to His Prophet and His Messenger (ﷺ). Love your Prophet with no question and no weakness. All praise to Allah Who guided us to Islam and we would not have been guided had Allah not guided us.

وَلَوْ أَنَّهُمْ إِذ ظَّلَمُواْ أَنفُسَهُمْ جَآؤُوكَ

If, then, after having sinned against themselves, they would but come to thee...

Meaning they come to the Prophet (ﷺ) and they ask forgiveness from Allah and the Prophet (ﷺ) asks forgiveness for them, then at that time, they would have found Allah Acceptor of Repentance, Merciful.

Allah describes the Prophet (ﷺ) here and His description of the Prophet (ﷺ) and His love to his Prophet (ﷺ) has no count and no limit.

So what is required from us is to recite salawat on the Prophet (ﷺ) 1000 times every day up to Judgment Day.

Wa salaamun `ala al-mursaleen, w 'alhamulillahi rabbi 'l-`alaameen

Every minute piece of diamond turns into many diamonds, by the baraka of Prophet (ﷺ).

Similarly every piece of diamond of love of the Prophet (ﷺ) will open to become a diamond of love of the Prophet (ﷺ) and to follow him in this life and the next.

Open the doors between you and the Prophet (ﷺ). Don't close them but become acceptable in the Presence of Allah swt and the Presence of the Prophet (ﷺ).

What is beloved to Allah? He loves His Prophet (ﷺ) who guided us to iman and to Islam

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله تعلى وبركاته

Wa ’s-salam `alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.
