On Bestowing Abundant Prayers Upon the Prophet ﷺ

Answered by Sayyidi Habib Umar bin Hafiz (may Allah protect him and benefit us by him)

We have been instructed to bestow abundant prayers upon the Prophet . How many prayers would be regarded as being abundant? Is it better to repeat a short formula so as to bestow more prayers or should I also read some longer prayers?

Some scholars say 300 prayers would be regarded as ‘abundant’. Others say 700. So try to read either number according to your ability. You should choose a prayer that you can repeat easily while also reading some other prayers even if they are long.
