Perpetual Blessings of Allah upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

Allah, the Exalted, has termed, His beloved and esteemed Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa 'aalihi wa 'ashaabihi wasallam (May the blessings of Allah and greetings be upon him, his house and his companions) as 'merciful' towards the entire universe. Especially with respect to his believers, he has been declared most kind and merciful. The most honorable. The Seal of all the Prophets sallallahu alayhi wasallam stated that: "I am the beloved of Allah".

The scholars explain that the title 'Beloved of Allah' is most elevated and comprehensive amongst the titles of honour sallallahu alayhi wasallam even more than being 'The Most Intimate' (as for Prophet Abraaheem, salutations to him); "The Speaker", (as for Prophet Moosaa, salutations to him); "The Bosom friend" (as for Prophet Adam, salutations to him); in fact more distinguished than other titles attributed to other prophets i.e. being the most favorite of Allah with a special kind of love that is exclusive to Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

Yet another pre-eminence accorded to the Holy Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, which shall cause envy to every one else, is that he shall be placed on the right side of Allah's Sublime Throne on the Day of Judgment to perform the honorable role of intercession.
