وَعَلٰى اٰلِكَ وَاَصۡحٰبِكَ يَا حَبِيۡبَ اللّٰه

 

اَلصَّلٰوةُ وَالسَّلَامُ عَلَيۡكَ يَا رَسُوۡلَ اللّٰه

وَعَلٰى اٰلِكَ وَاَصۡحٰبِكَ يَا نُوۡرَ اللّٰه

اَلصَّلٰوةُ وَالسَّلَامُ عَلَيۡكَ يَا نَبِيَّ اللّٰه

 

نَوَيۡتُ سُنَّتَ الۡاِعۡتِكَافِ

Translation: I have made the intention of Sunnah I’tikaf.

 

Whenever you enter a Masjid, upon remembering, make the intention of Nafl I’tikaf because as long as you stay in the Masjid you will keep obtaining the reward of Nafl (supererogatory) I’tikaf, and eating, drinking and sleeping will also become permissible for you in the Masjid.

Excellence of reciting Salat-‘Alan-Nabi صَلَّی اللّٰہ تعالٰی علیہ واٰلہٖ وسلَّم

Sayyiduna Shaykh Abul Hasan Bistami رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه said: I prayed to Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ to see Sayyiduna Abu Saalih Muazzin in my dream. My prayer was answered and I saw him in my dream in a very good condition. I inquired him, ‘O Abu Saalih! Tell me something about you?’ He رَحْمَةُ اللهِ تَعَالٰی عَلَيْه replied, ‘I would have been destroyed if I had not recited Salat upon the Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم in abundance. (Al-Qawl-ul-Badi’, pp. 260)

 

میرے اَعمال کا بدلہ تو جہنَّم ہی تھا      میں تو جاتا مجھے سرکار نے جانے نہ دیا

 

صَلُّوۡا عَلَى الۡحَبِيۡب       صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلٰى مُحَمَّد
