Aqeedah (Creed & Belief) Purification of The Soul Scholars of Islam Worship - 'Ibaadah'

From Those Affairs That Make It Obligatory on Us to Send Salaah and Salaam upon the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam)

Imaam Muhammad Bin Saaleh Al-Uthaymeen (rahimahullaah) stated whilst stating the benefits of sending Salaah and Salaam upon the Messenger of Allaah (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wsallam);

2nd benefit:

It is from the rights of the Messenger (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam) that you send prayers upon him, because Allaah has saved you from misguidance by way of him (and) guided you to the guidance by his way, and there is no way to attain the Pleasure of Allaah [The Most High] and His paradise except by (following the path of) Muhammad (Sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam). If a person was to guide an individual to the way to a city from the cities he was intending to go to, he  would see that he owes a great favour to that individual (who showed him the way); so how about the Prophet (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam)- the one who has shown you the way to get to Paradise? Therefore, it is his right that you send prayers upon him (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam). [Source: Fataawa Noor Alad Darb. Volume 12 page 210]
