Shaykh al-±£s¢, in Mi¥b¡¦ al-Mutahajjid, and Sayyid Ibn ±¡w£s, in Jam¡l al-Usb£`, have mentioned within the recommended acts on Fridays that it is recommended to visit the Holy Prophet (¥) and the Holy Imams (`a) on Fridays. Imam Ja`far al-¯¡diq (‘a) is reported to have said that one who intends to visit the tombs of the Holy Prophet, Imam Al¢ Am¢r al-Mu'min¢n, Lady F¡§imah al-Zahr¡', Imam al-°asan, Imam al-°usayn, and the Holy Imams (as) while he is in a remote place may bathe himself on Friday, put on two clean garbs, go to a desert, -or go up to a housetop, according to another narration- and then offer a four unit prayer reciting any S£rah he can recite. When he finishes the prayer, he may stand up, face the kiblah direction, and say the following:

اَلسَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكَ ايُّهَا ٱلنَّبِيُّ

alssal¡mu `alayka ayyuh¡ alnnabiyyu

Peace be upon you, O Prophet

Peace and Allah’s mercy and blessings be upon you all.

According to numerous narrations, the Holy Prophet (¥) is informed about the greeting of those who greet him and the prayers of those who invoke Allah’s blessings upon him wherever they are. In this respect, a °ad¢th reads that an angel is commissioned to respond to everyone who says,

Allah may send peace and blessings upon Mu¦ammad and his Household,

¥all¡ all¡hu `al¡ mu¦ammadin wa ¡lih¢ wa sallama

صَلَّىٰ ٱللَّهُ عَلَىٰ مُحَمَّدٍ وَآلِهِ وَسَلَّمَ

by saying, “peace be upon you, too.” That angle, then, tells the Holy Prophet (¥) that so-and-so has greeted him; therefore, the Holy Prophet (¥) says, “May peace be upon him, too.”

According to a narration, the Holy Prophet (¥aw) has said, “He who visits my tomb after my death will be considered to have immigrated to me in my lifetime. If you cannot visit my tomb, you can send me greetings, for they reach me.”

FRIDAY SALWAAT

It is also advisable to repeat the following words that Imam `Al¢ (as) mentioned in one of his sermons on Friday, as is cited in the book of al-Raw¤ah min al-K¡f¢, representing an invocation of Allah’s blessings upon the Holy Prophet (¥):          Pdf        jpg
