[2] He (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) also said: "The miser is one whom when I am mentioned to him, fails to send prayers upon me." [3] He (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) said: 'Allaah has Angels who roam the earth and convey salaam to me from my ummah.' [4] He (sal-Allaahu 'alayhe wa sallam) also said: ''Whenever someone sends salaam upon me, Allaah returns my soul to me so that I may return salaam to that person. [5]
