Many people don’t know this beautiful hadith:
It is narrated that ‘Umar ibn al-Khattaab (may Allah be pleased with him) said:
‘Dua is suspended between heaven and earth and none of it is taken up until you send blessings
upon your Prophet (peace and blessings of Allahbe upon him).” (Classed as hasan by al-Albaani
in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi).
The etiquettes of making dua properly is to start by praising Allah SWT, making durood, then making your duas and then ending with salutations for the Prophet SAW.
In another narration, Ubayy ibn Ka’b said:
I said: O Messenger of Allah, I send blessings upon you a great deal; how much of my prayer (dua) should be for you? He said: “Whatever you wish.”
I said: One quarter? He said: “Whatever you wish, and if you do more it is better for you.”
I said: Half? He said: “Whatever you wish, and if you do more it is better for you.”
I said: Two thirds? He said: “Whatever you wish, and if you do more it is better for you.”
I said: Should I make all my du’aa’ for you? He said: “Then your concerns will be taken care of and your sins will be forgiven.”
Narrated by al-Tirmidhi (2457); classed as hasan by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Tirmidhi.
The meaning here was that sending abundant salawat on the Prophet SAW meant that Allah SWT would take care of all of our needs. And Allah knows best.
