Shaykh Muhammad Al-Ninowy on the meaning of "solah"


Assalamualaikum folks.

It's the first day of April. Let's not be a fool, let's make plenty of salawat.

What does it really mean when we say Allahumma salli ala Sayyidina Muhammad?
What does it mean by Allah and the angels making solah (salutations and prayer) on the Prophet?

Many of us take for granted the meaning behind salawat.
In this video, which I am watching/listening as I am typing this posting, we get to learn from Shakyh Al-Ninowy, the meaning of a salawat.  

Solah takes its root from sod-lam-ya meaning du'a, it means calling upon, that means you are directing yourself (tawajjuh) towards Allah. 

Take a listen. May we benefit from this lesson. 
May we benefit from a knowledge that could transform us, instead of just amassing information.

A little funny "trivia" I picked up from this video:
Where is niyyah? If you were to send an email to niyyah, where do you think it would go? It has got to be:

On a serious note, niyyah is not on the tongue, it's in the heart.
