Making dua for Rasulullah (s.a.w), his family and companions is called salawat.
One of the great walis of the fifteenth century, Hazrat Sulayman Jazuli of Morocco wrote Dala’il-ul-Hayrat in order to gather all salawats recited by Muslims. The story of the writing of the book is as follows:
“Every night, Hazrat Sulayman Jazuli’s wife travels to and back from Madina al-Munawwara. The great wali asks her how she does this, and what she has done to gain such a degree. She replies: “I know a salawat-i sharifa, and I go and come back thanks to this.” But she does not tell the salawat, because it is a secret (sirr). Afterwards Sulayman Jazuli (q.s) gathers all salawat-i sharifas in his book and asks his wife if there is the one she recites in the book. After reading, she smiles and says that it is mentioned in a few places of the book.”
