Salawat campaign message from the Prophet Lovers Foundation
“We invite all mothers-fathers, grandmothers-grandfathers, sisters-brothers and all people, who are the lovers of Prophets, to race to do good, adorning the month of April with salawats,” the Prophet Lovers Foundation said in a statement.
“All praise be to our Almighty Lord, who has endowed the earth with all kinds of blessings and bestowed upon us countless beauties. Peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, who is the light of our eyes, the happiness of our hearts, the Sun of the universe, sent as a mercy to the worlds and met us with the blessing of faith upon his arrival, and be upon his family, his companions and those who followed his path until the Day of Judgement,” the statement began.
Recalling that they have launched a salawat campaign under the motto “thousands of salawats every day “, the foundation invited people to recite salawats in order to resonate the houses, streets and cities with the Holy Name of the Prophet Muhammed.
“In order to be close to the Prophet, one should remember him a lot."
Underlining that the way to love Allah is through loving our beloved Prophet Muhammed (PBUH), the statement said:” Indeed, Allah confers blessing upon the Prophet, and His angels. O you who have believed, ask blessing upon him and ask Allah to grant him peace. To be close to Allah and His Messenger as a Muslim, to be a servant whom Allah and His Messenger please and love, is more valuable to us than to have all on the world. It is indicated in many verses of Holy Qur’an and hadith about whom Allah and His Messenger love and who are closer to Allah and His Messenger. ‘Say, (O Muhammad), "If you should love Allah, then follow me, so Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Forgiving and Merciful." To love Allah is to follow the Prophet and to be close to the Prophet is to remember him a lot. ‘The person closest to me on the Day of Judgement is the one who sent the most Salat upon me’ says Prophet Muhammed, giving glad tidings to the believers.”
“Loving the prophet can only be expressed by taking his exemplary life as a guide to ourselves”
The statement went on to say: “To truly love the prophet, whom our Almighty Lord calls ‘the Beloved’ and sends as a mercy to the worlds, can only be proved by taking his exemplary life as a guide for us. In order to remember him, to understand and live his sunnah, we should always send salawats to him and adapt our lives in line of his life. In the hearts and tongues of believers, the love of the prophet must be increased every day with a light of faith that never goes out. By Allah's leave, we, as the Prophet's beloved Foundation, have taken this supreme purpose as a goal and have taken it upon ourselves to remind our people of this by means of various activities.”
Let's give weight to Salawat-I Sharifs in April"
Inviting all people to join the Salawat Campaign they launched, the Prophet Lovers Foundation concluded as follows:” We have launched the Salawat Campaign under the motto ‘thousands of Salawats every day'. Although we will give weight to send salawats to our Prophet Muhammed in April, we will also continue to send salawats to him as long as our heart beats. We must mobilize our families, spouses, children, relatives, and friends to contribute to this blessed campaign. O Prophet Lovers! From seven to seventy, we invite all the beloved Prophets to participate in the campaign of Salawat, adorning the month of April 2020 with salawats and resonating the houses, streets, streets and cities with the Holy Name of the Prophet.
