Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was the greatest human being to ever live. He loved his ummah so dearly that he put his own life on the line and sacrificed for us immensely to convey the message of Islam, even before our existence. As a believer, it is crucial that we keep his presence alive and beating within our hearts. We are eternally indebted to Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), for he is the one who lit the flame of faith in our hearts.
One of the greatest ways we can show our love and thanks to him (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is by sending salutations and blessings upon him.
