Virtues of month of Rabi ul Awwal

VIRTUES of THE MONTH Rabi'- Ul - Awwal It is mentioned in The Jawahar Ghaibi {Jewels of The Unseen} that in this month the Companions of the Beloved of Allah Hadrat Muhammad may Allah be pleased with them all, the Taba'een {those who saw the holy Companions} and Taba' Taba'een {the ones who saw the Taba'een} used to perform as a gift to the Blessed Soul of the Beloved of Allah Hadrat Muhammad, 20 Raka'h daily for 12 days. If one can not perform this Salah daily, at least it should be performed on the 2nd and 12th day and the gift passed on to the Soul of the Beloved of Allah Hadrat Muhammad ,because the Beloved of my soul came in the dreams of those who performed this Salah, and gave them the good news of Paradise. Seeing the Beloved of my soul, Hadrat Muhammad in the dream after his demise and giving the good news of Paradise just as if one saw him in real life. It is mentioned in "Kitabul Awrad" that on the night the Hilal {visible moon} is seen, one should perform 16 Raka'h Nafl {voluntary} Salah, in sections of 2 Raka'ah and intentions {Niyyah} of 2 Raka'ah each and in each Raka'ah recite after Surah Al-Fatihah, Surah Ikhlas 3 times and after the completion of the 16 Raka'ah recite the following Salatul Nabi {Durood} on The Beloved of Allah, one thousand times:
Allahumma rabba hadhi-hid da'wa-tit-tamma wa-salatil qae-ma,Ati muhammadanil wasilata wal fadeela,Wab ath-hu maqamam-mahmuda-nil alladhi wa aadtha
O God, Owner of this perfect call and Owner of this prayer to be performed,Bestow upon Muhammad al waseelah (a station in Prardise) and al fadeelah (a rank above the rest of creation),And raise him to the rank you have promised him The above Durood when continued to be recited daily for 12 days {one thousand times each day} after Salatul 'Isha, and then going to sleep in the state of wudu, the reciter will Inshaallah Ta'la see the Beloved of my soul, Hadrat Muhammad.

ALLAHUMMA SALLI ALA MUHAMMADIN WA ALA ALI MUHAMMADIN KAMA SALLAITA ALA IBRAHEEMA WA ALA ALI IBRAHEEMA INNAKA HAMEEDUM MAJEED he will see the Beloved of Allah Hadrat Muhammadin his dream. In the same book it is written that any one who recites in the month of Rabi-ul-Awwal one hundred and twenty five thousand times any one of the following 2 Duroods
Assalatu wassalamu ‘alayka Ya Rasulallah
Sallallahu Alaihe Wasallam he will certainly see the beloved of my soul Muhammad in his dream.
