Supplications of the Prophet
The Virtues of Remembrance (1)
The Messenger of Allah (1)
said: "Shall I not tell you the most in goodness of
your deeds, the nicest to Your Owner, the highest in
your ranks, better for you than spending gold and silver,
and better for you than meeting your enemy whereupon
you strike their necks and they strike your necks?"
They said "Yes O' Messenger of Allah." He said: "Remembrance
is read as Salla 'allahu 'alayhi wassallam, and may
be translated as "May Allah bestow his Grace, Honor,
and Peace upon him."
