"DALAA-ILUTL-KHAY-RAT" of Abu 'Abdullah Muhammad Ibn Sulayman al-Jazuli r.a. May Allah Reward & Bless his soul.
يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ صَلُّواْ عَلَيۡهِ وَسَلِّمُواْ تَسۡلِيمًا
"... O ye who believe! Ask blessings on him and salute him with a worthy salutation." (QUR'AN:AL-AHZAB:33:56)

"O Allah, I believed in Muhammad but did not see him; do not deprive me in the Gardens of his vision. Bestow his company upon me and cause me to die in his religion. Let me drink from his pool a quenching, pleasant, delightful drink after which we shall never thirst again. You are powerful over everything. O Allah, convey to the soul of Muhammad my greetings and peace. O Allah, as I believed in Muhammad but did not see him, do not deprive me in the Gardens of his vision."

O Allah! I make the intention to invoke blessings on the Prophet, may Allah's blessings and peace be upon him, in compliance with Your Order and as an attestation of the Prophet sent by You, our master Muhammad, may Your blessings and peace be upon him; in his love and in my yearning for him and with the respect due to him as he merits it. Accept it from me by Your Grace and Kindness and remove the veil of negligence from my heart and make me among one of Your righteous servants.

Jazakallah khairan ya Ust.

May I ask a few questions pertaining to these 7 significant verses?

Does these 7 verses have any link with each other? or does it relate to anything that a Muslim should practice?

What should we pay attention in these 7 verses?

As-salaamu 'alaykum war. wab

Actually, I have presented a lecture, reflections on these verses in previous session at Elias Green.

The gist of it was:

[1] These verses has been included as daily recitals (litany) which my mother and teacher had taught me, as found in the ‘amalan (practices of Imam ‘Abdullah al-Haddad). It is also called: “Ayat al-Kifaayat” (The Verse that is Sufficient).

[2] These verses were selected from the Qur’an, in fact one Sahabah (Ka’ab al-Ahbar) of the Prophet s.a.w. remarked about these verses: “There are seven aayat (verses) in Allah’s Book [the Qur’an], that when I recited them, I do not care even if the sky collapse upon the earth, I would remain safe.”

[3] Its meanings & teachings are to strengthen our faith, resolve and our having complete trust in Allah (as per our believe in Qadha’ & Qadar of Allah). It was when I had the stroke that the impact of these verses became manifestly strong and had kept me to be in complete reliance in Allah s.w.t. when faced with the trials & tribulations – AlHamdulillah!

[4] Many may wondered how our past ‘ulama and anscestors became people who had strong,firm & resolute disposition, able to remain serene and tranquil although surmounted with problems and difficulty, as though not at all bothered - when faced with these tribulations in life. Well, apart from already believing in Qadha’ & Qadr of Allah, these verses becomes their daily litany (wird) that continuously reinforces and strengthen them with Barakah from Allah– for these are Allah’s words and assurances.

So I am sharing them to my students & others who can inshaAllah, benefit from them.

May Allah s.w.t. make us people foremost in Ma'rifah & TaqwaAllah.

WaAllaahu a’lam
