This was the first ever million salawat gathering which brought together hearts in unison reciting the salawat upon the Best of Creation (peace and blessings be upon him). Males and females, brothers and sisters, religious and non-religious, family and friends from around the country attended the gathering which became as Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi described ‘a historical moment.’ The singers gets us in the mood with their singing, the Shaykhs led us in salawat with Shaykh Dr Asim leading on the 201 Names of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him) from the Dalail ul-Khayrat. We reached a million salawat whilst reciting salato-salam. The gathering was well-received and many people had many good experiences.
Salawat on Day:
Sister Khadijah, a new convert, was invited to the gathering as she needed conformation in which direction she needed to go. During the gathering she was blessed to have a vision of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings be upon him). This settled her heart and knew for herself what the correct path is for her.
