With such ritual invocation, the Believer feels to be a member of the Radiant Procession—the Procession of Faith and Jihad—from Adam (peace be upon him) until the Day of Resurrection. The Believer who prays to God with this ritual invocation enters thereby within the Blessed Community of Good, which God—Exalted be He—supports and protects. His spiritual link and love of his brothers for whom he prays in their absence become stronger. In the Tashahhud, there is a teaching for the Believer about Du’ā’ ar-Rābiṭa since, therein, we pray for all the righteous: “Peace be upon us and upon all God’s righteous servants”.
About this invocation God’s Messenger (God bless him and give him peace) says (1) : “When he (the Muslim in prayer) says it, such invocation reaches all God’s righteous servants in heaven and on earth”.
