Excerpts:

The Prophet (salallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said:
quote:
Frequently send salutations on me on Friday during the day and night. Whoever sends one salutation on me, Allaah will send ten to him.

Imam Ibnul-Qayyim (rahimahullaah), who wrote a book about the virtues of sending salutations on Prophet Muhammad (salallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam), listed some benefits for practicing the above hadeeth:  

quote:
1. Doing this act is following Allaah's order

2. Sending Salutations on the Prophet agrees with Allaah's. And if they differ then our salutations are du'aa and request. Allaah's salutation raises the Prophet's rank and is a praise for him.

8. Sending salutations on the Prophet (salallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) is a way to earn Allaah's mercy.

9. Sending salutations on the Prophet (salallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) saves you from being stingy in giving him salutations.

10. Sending salutations on the Prophet (salallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam) with the du'aa after the Adhaan earns you the right for his intercession on the Day of Judgment.


quote:
Al-Manaawee said: There are lots of words and phrases for sending salutations on the Prophet (salallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam). The most famous and best is: Allahumma salli  'ala Muhammadin wa 'ala alee Muhammadin, kama sallaita 'ala Ibrahim wa 'ala alee Ibrahim  [Faydul Qadeer #1403]




Subhanak Allaahuma wa bihamdika ash-hadu anlaa illaaha illa anta astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk  

If I said anything correct, then it is from Allaah (subhanahu wa taa'ala), and if I erred, then that is from me and shaytan.
