RAS 03 – Sending Salaam on the Prophet

So we learnt about the importance of giving salaam to others, but did you know that it is the way of Allah and the angels to send salaam on the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلّم)?

Allah tells us in the Qur’an:

إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ ۚ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ

وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا

Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet: O you that believe! Send your blessings on him, and salute him with all respect. [Surat al-Ahzab, 33:56]

So if Allah sends peace and blessings on the Prophet, and so do the angels, then shouldn’t we? This is an important sunnah that really needs to be revived. Not because we don’t do it at all, but because we don’t do it enough!

Virtues of Sending Peace and Blessings on the Prophet

Not only are we commanded by Allah to send peace and blessings on the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلّم), there is also a LOT of reward for it.

The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلّم) said, ‘Whoever sends one Salah upon me, Allah will send ten upon him.’ [Muslim]

How to send Peace and Blessings to the Prophet

The simplest way of sending salaam to the Prophet is by saying sallallahu alayhi wa salaampeace and blessing be upon him, whenever his name is mentioned.

The Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلّم) also directed us to learn what is known as Salatul Ibrahimiyah­ (or Durud Sharif) which is most commonly read in salah:

اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ، كَمَا صَلَّيْتَ عَلَى آلِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ  إِنَّكَ

حَمِيدٌ مَجِيدٌ، اللَّهُمَّ بَارِكْ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ، كَمَا بَارَكْتَ عَلَى آلِ

إِبْرَاهِيمَ، إِنَّكَ حَمِيدٌ مَجِيد

O Allah, send Your Salah upon Muhammad and upon the family of Muhammad, as You sent Your Salah upon the family of Ibrahim, verily You are the Most Praiseworthy, Most Glorious. O Allah, send Your blessings upon Muhammad and upon the family of Muhammad, as You sent Your blessings upon the family of Ibrahim, verily You are Most Praiseworthy, Most Glorious. [Bukhari]

Times to Send Salaam on the Prophet

Although you can (and should) send salaam on the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلّم) at any time of the day, there are a few times that it is especially recommended:

  • After the adhan
  • Before and after making dua to Allah
  • As part of the adhkar (words of remembrance) in the morning and evening
  • On Fridays

Did You Know

  • The Prophet called the one who doesn’t send blessings on him a MISER!
  • Duas are suspending in the heavens if you don’t send peace and blessings on the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلّم)
  • Sending peace and blessings on the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلّم) is a means of taking away your distress and the forgiveness of your sins.

Action Points

  • Get into the habit of sending salaam upon the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلّم), each times his name is mentioned. Don’t be a miser! Muhammad – sallallahu alayhi wa salaam, the Prophet – sallallahu alayhi wa salaam, Rasool Allah – sallallahu alayhi wa salaam.
  • Remember to send salaam on the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلّم) ten times in the morning (after fajr) and ten times in the evening (after asr). This is part of the prescribed daily adhkar.
  • Begin and end with peace and blessings on the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلّم), each time you make a dua. Remember that duas are not accepted unless you send salaam on him (صلى الله عليه وسلّم).
