Shadhili masters have said if you don't have a Sufi Shaykh, then take Dalail Khaytat as your (Sufi Shaykh and Guide) (Dalail al khayrat is a Sufi Shadhili masterpiece of Salawat upon the Prophet ﷺ written by Imam Jazuli).
Shaykh Hasan al-’Adawi in his commentary on the Dala’il al Khayrat recorded that Shaykh al-Mursi said: “Whoever recites this salawat 500 times every day and night – and is constant in that – then he will not die until he meets with the Prophet ﷺ in a state of wakefulness (yaqadha). That salawat is: “Allahumma Salli ala Sayyidina Muhammadin ‘Abdika wa Nabiyyika wa Rasulika an-Nabiyy al-Ummiyy wa ‘ala aalihi wa sahbihi wa Sallim”.
Imam al-Jazuli (rahimahullah) - for 14 years he read the Bismillah-ir-Rahman-ir-Rahim 114,000 times every day, in that room right there (pointing to the room), fourteen years. He read his prayer on the Prophet ﷺ (Dalail al Khayrat) three times, he did Khatm (complete recitation) of the Quran every single day for fourteen years. They said when he came out people made tawbah just by seeing him. (Al Fatiha) - Shaykh Hamza Yusuf.
