Mawlana Abdur-Rauf Sukkharvi (may Allah preserve him) continues,
Then proceed to the recitation of blessings and salutation (darood) on the Holy Prophet.
Refresh your intention,
O Allah! I am the most lowly individual in the followers (Ummah) of the Holy Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace).
Prophet’s favors on me are innumerable.
It is essential (wajib) for me to love him.
Hence, in order to fulfill the obligations of this love and to further increase it in my heart I recite these salutations.
Then with full concentration recite the durood,
اللهم صل على سيدنا محمد ن النبى الامى
و على اله و اصحابه و بارك و سلم
