They have even written poetries on Salawat to show their love for the Prophet and Ahlul Bayt such as following:.
In this book he has gathered various kind of Salawat that are narrated from Ahlul Bayt and also the Salawats that other scholars of Shia have invented.

In the book, the Shaykh quotes the famous Andalusian scholar Imam al-Qurtubi d. One who regularly recites this prayer every day, times or moreAllah will relieve him of his grief and sorrow, and will remove his problems and difficulties, ease his affairs, illuminate his inward, elevate his status, improve his state, increase his sustenance, and many more doors of virtue will be opened for him.
His words will become more effective as a leader, he will be protected from unfortunate events, and bad calamities such as starvation and poverty, and love for him will be placed in the hearts of other people—and there is nothing he asks of Allah except that Allah will give it to him.
These benefits will not be received unless the prayer is read regularly. This prayer is among the treasures of Allah and its recitation is a key these treasure troves.
Those servants of Allah who regularly recite this invocation will be granted an opening and through it, they will attain what is willed for them. Shaykh Muhammad al-Sanusi d. Shaykh al-Sanusi is reported to have said:. Whosoever is persistent in reciting the invocation 11 times each daythen it is as if it [the prayer] sends down provision from the heavens and causes it to sprout from the earth.
Whosoever reads this salutation 11 times after each [obligatory] prayer and adopts it as his regular litany will never have his provision cut off, and he will attain lofty degrees and a sanctuary of wealth. Whosoever reads it 41 times regularly after the Dawn Prayer each day will also obtain his wants. Whosoever reads it times regularly will attain what he seeks after and more than he desired. Whosoever reads it regularly each day times — the number of the Emissaries, upon whom be peace — for the unveiling of secrets, then he will behold everything that he wanted to see.

Elsewhere in the book, it is described how the prayer is traditionally used in North Africa to obtain a want or to avert a calamity:. And among the tried and tested prayers is the Prayer of Relief al-Salat al-Tafrijiyya from al-Qurtubi. Those in the Maghreb call it the Fiery Prayer al-Salat al-Nariyyaand that is because when they wish to obtain something that is sought after or avert something undesirable, they come together in a single gathering and read this prayer 4, times and quickly obtain what they were seeking.
Note : If the prayer is recited in this way, the figure of 4, should be divided among a group of 7 or 11 regular reciters of this invocation. For example, if there are 11 people in the group, the participants would recite the prayer in unison with each person contributing to the total with salutations. At the end of the gathering, a supplication should be made to Allah asking Him to fulfil the need for which the prayer was carried out.

I quote the Hadith under the consideration from this book. Imam Reda a. Salam and Salawat on the Prophet is an established fact in the Quran. Muslims across the world from the time the above Aya has been revealed up to the Day of Great Judgment are bound to send their Salawat onto the Prophet of Islam.
Muslims five times a day when they call for Adhan and Eqama and even in their daily Prayers send their Salawat onto the Prophet of Islam. However, when he is absent and we are talking about him we may not bother about those titles. In Islamic Erfan the abpve expression is used firstly for Allah s. Muslim Gnostics believe they are and they should be always at the presence of Allah and the 14 infallible, and hence, they always mention those name with high respect.

A key to the grant of supplication: There are many Hadiths stating that in order to have your supplication granted start your supplication with Salawat and end it with Salawat.

Salawat in the universe: The entire universe is asking the blessings for the Prophet.
