Sholawat reading along with its benefits and virtues

Sholawat Reading – In Islam, there are many practices that can be done to increase the reward of a Muslim. Of the many practices, one of them is the practice of reading sholawat. Apart from that, there are also various sholawat readings. On this occasion, we will discuss more about reading sholawat along with its benefits and priorities.

Meaning of Salawat to the Prophet Muhammad SAW

Prophet Muhammad SAW is the last Prophet who brought Islam for the benefit of the people. Prophet Muhammad SAW is as Rasulullah SAW to bring Islam as the last religion to perfect the previous religions.

The Prophet Muhammad is the messenger of Allah SWT who provides intercession or help to his people on the Day of Resurrection. One of the efforts of a Muslim to be able to get the Prophet Muhammad’s intercession in the future is to practice reading sholawat.

Love for Rasulullah SAW is an obligation as his people. As followers of the Prophet Muhammad SAW, we must follow his behavior and character to prove our love for him. One of the proofs of our love for the Prophet Muhammad is by reading blessings. Reading blessings is one of the recommended worship for Muslims.

Allah also ordered Muslims to always offer blessings on the Prophet Muhammad. This command is stated in the Al-Qur’an Surah al-Ahzab verse 56 as follows.

إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ ۚ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا

Meaning: “Indeed, Allah and His angels pray for the Prophet. O you who believe, pray for the Prophet and salute him.”

For example, the practice of reading blessings every Friday can be considered as sunnah worship. In language, sholawat is the plural form of sholla, which means prayer. According to the term, salawat is a form of prayer and praise for the Prophet as worship to Allah SWT. There are three kinds of prayers, namely prayers from Allah, from angels, and from humans or their people.

The understanding of some scholars about sholawat from Allah means giving grace and glory according to Ibn Kathir. If it’s from an angel, it means asking for forgiveness, but if it’s from his people, it means praying that he will be blessed with grace and glory.

According to Imam Nawawi explained that blessings from Allah mean to increase glory. Apart from that, there are scholars who also explain that Allah SWT blessed the Prophet Muhammad, meaning that Allah SWT praised him in the presence of His angels.
