One of the greatest blessings that Allah has bestowed upon His creation, after granting them existence, is the ability, opportunity, and permission to communicate and connect with Him directly. Our Most Merciful and Gracious Allah, however, is so benevolent that He readily hears and immediately responds to the supplications and calls of His weak and feeble slaves. From this we come to know that supplication and prayer was one of their main acts of devotion, and in this they were an example for all of mankind. The best of all these examplars of Divine adoration, and the most reverent of Allah’s devotees and slaves, was – undoubtedly – our Master Muḥammad ﷺ, the Chosen and Beloved of Allah. In his twenty-three years of prophethood, the Messenger of Allah ﷺ, uttered such words of devotion and adoration for his Lord and Cherisher that one can easily say—none before him, nor after him could ever worship Allah in the way the Most Beloved of Allah, Muḥammad ﷺ worshiped Him. If we study and contemplate over the supplications and intimate conversations he had with his Lord, we will come to the conclusion that these supplications and utterances in and of themselves are a proof of his prophethood and veracity. The honorable Shaykh, Hazrat Mawlana Hakeem Muhammad Akthar (may Allah have mercy upon him) used to mention: “The words of the Prophet are in itself a proof of prophethood.” Volumes have been compiled recording these beautiful recording these beautiful prophetic prayers and supplications. The Messenger’s treasures and gems are an invaluable gift from the Divine.
