Stating that with the first revelation of the Islam’s Prophet (S.A.W.) the voice of Satan's grief rose because he was disappointed with deceiving the believers he said, “Satan, when cursed by God, when he was driven out of paradise and at the time of the Prophet's (S.A.W.) first revelation and also at the time of descend of the Sura al-Hamd moaned.”
He emphasized that the Prophet (S.A.W.) wants to turn the whole life of human into divine recitation and expressed, “The reason for the struggle of hegemony with Islam is that it wants people to be neglectful and seek the world and do not reach the worldly and hereafter’s beatitude.”
According to Hujjat al-Islam wa al-Muslimin Mirbagheri, the Prophet (S.A.W.) changed the course of the universe and by reading the revelations created change in the hearts and souls; therefore, all the Prophets and Saints and humanity need to ask for the Prophet (S.A.W.) as at the time of his first revelation it was communicated to Him that read.
“Salavat is our covenant renewal with the Prophet (S.A.W.) and Infallible Imams (A.S.) and will purify the human soul, as the prostration of the angels before Adam made them clean” he said in another part of his speech, referring to the blessings of Salavat.
He mentioned the good manner, edification and development of man, and the forgiveness of sins from other Salavat’s blessings and stated, “Salavat bestows the grace of accepting the guardianship and moving in the path of righteousness to human.”
