Weekly Ṣalawāt: Yā Salām

اللَّهُمَّ يا اللهُ يا سَلام صَلِّ على عَبْدِكَ و حَبِيبِكَ سَيِّدِنا مُحَمَّدٍ النَّبِيِّ السَّلام و على آلِهِ و صَحْبِهِ و سَلِّمْ تَسْلِيماً و سَلِّمْنِي بِهِ و لَقِّني به تَحِيَّةً و سلاماً

Allāhumma yā Allāhu yā Salām ṣalli `alā `abdika wa ḥabībika sayyidinā Muḥammad an-nabī as-salām wa `alā ālihi wa ṣaḥbihi wa sallim tasliman wa sallimnī bihi wa laqqinī bihi taḥiyyatan wa salāmā

O Allāh, O Flawless One, bestow abundant prayers and peace upon Your slave and beloved, our Master Muḥammad, the Prophet of Peace and by him grant me safety and allow me to receive salutations and peace (in Paradise).

The above is a prayer upon the Prophet ﷺ composed by Sayyidī al-Ḥabīb `Umar bin Ḥafīẓ. The weekly salat has no set number and has not been prescribed by one of our teachers. We started sending out these salawat out of a desire to share some of these beautiful formulas with those that we love. Try to read it once at least upon first seeing it and then read it as many times as you are able. The more salawat you read, the more gifts you will receive. It should not take priority over any other adhkar you have been given by your teachers. The best time to read it is on Thursday night and Friday since the Messenger of Allah ﷺ encouraged us to bestow abundant prayers upon him at these times. It can of course, be read at any time and in any place.
