“Through invoking blessings upon the Holy Prophetsa … it is my personal experience that divine grace in the shape of wonderful light proceeds in the direction of the Holy Prophetsa and is absorbed into his bosom and then issuing therefrom numberless streams of it reach everyone deserving them according to his capacity. Certainly, no grace can reach anyone without the agency of the Holy Prophetsa. Invoking blessings on the Holy Prophetsa brings into movement his throne from which these streams of light issue. He who desires to obtain the grace of God Almighty should invoke blessings on him persistently so that divine grace might be brought into motion.” (Al Hakam, 28 February 1903, p. 7)
“On one occasion, it so happened that I remained very much occupied with calling down blessings on the Holy Prophet, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, for a long time, for I believed that the ways leading to God are very fine and cannot be discovered except through the agency of the Holy Prophet, as Allah says too وَابْتَغُوْٓ اِلَیْہِ الْوَسِیْلَۃَ [And seek the way of approach unto Him. (Surah al-Maidah, Ch.5: V.36)].
“After a time, I saw in a vision that two water carriers came and entered into my house, one by the outer entrance and the other by the inner entrance carrying on their shoulders water-skins full of divine light and they said ھٰذا بما صلّیت علٰی محمّدٍ [This is on account of the blessings you invoked upon Muhammad]” (The Philosophy of Divine Revelation, p. 154)
“O Allah send down blessings and peace on him and on his people proportionate to the amount of his suffering and sorrow for the sake of the ummah and send down upon him the light of Thy mercy forever.” (Barakat-ud-Dua, p. 11)
