سْمِ اللهِ، وَالصَّلَاةُ وَالسَّلَّامُ عَلَى رَسُولِ اللهِ

From the Quran and Hadith there are numerous benefits in sending salah and salaam upon the Prophet (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam).

 

You are following the way of Allah azza wa jal and His Honorable Angels.

 “Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet.” (33:56)


Both angels on your rigth and left write in your favour!!!
(amplification of reward, removal of sins and receiving the blessings of Allah).


The Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said:

“Whoever supplicates Allah to exalt my mention (i.e., send salah),
Allah will exalt his mention (i.e., send salah) ten times
and remove from him ten sins
and raise him ten degrees.”

[reported by Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin Al-’As (May Allah be pleased with them)Muslim]

Your salah on him reaches him sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

The Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said:

“Allah has angels who go around on earth, conveying to me the salaam of my ummah.”

We have lost our chance in this life to see and interact with our Messenger sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, but out of Allah’s Great Mercy He has allowed our duaa to reach him no matter how far or close we are to his grave.

[It was narrated that Abdullah ibn Mas’ood (may Allah be pleased with him)Sunan Nasaa'i, Saheeh Al-Albani]

 

The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam will return your greeting.

The Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said,

“There is not one of you who sends his greetings upon me except that Allah returns the soul to my body (in the grave) and I return his greeting.”

[reported by Abu Hurayrah (May Allah be pleased with him)  Abu Dawood, Saheeh Al-Albani]


Jibreel alayhi salaam will send salah and salaam upon you.

Abdur Rahman ibn Awf (may Allah be pleased with him) said, I came to the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam while he was in prostration and he elongated his prostration and then said,

“Jibreel came to me and he said, ‘whoever sends blessings (salah) upon you, I will send blessings on him, and whoever sends greetings (salaam) upon you, I will send greetings upon him,’ so I prostrated out of thankfulness to Allah.’”

[Haakim, Saheeh Al-Albani]



Answering of one’s duaa.

Most of us do not know that duaa is suspended between the heavens and earth until we send salawat on the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Umar radi Allahu anhu said,

“Duaa is suspended between heaven and earth and none of it is taken up until you send blessings upon your Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam.”

[At-Tirmidhi, Hasan Al-Albani]
 
The scholars state that it is recommended (mustahabb) to include salawat in our duaa for the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam.



The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam invited the believers to make salah on him.

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said:

“Do not take your houses as graves and do not take my grave as a place of festivity (which you visit repeatedly). Send blessings upon me for your greeting will reach me no matter where you are.”

[Abu Dawood, Saheeh Al-Albani]


You will not be among the humiliated.

Abu Hurayrah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said,

“May his nose soil with dust in whose presence mention is made of me and he does not supplicate for me.”

[At-Tirmidhi, Saheeh Al-Albaani]

Imam Nawawi rahimahullah states the saying ‘may his nose be rubbed in dust’ means to suffer humiliation and disgrace. That is “may such person be humiliated and disgraced who hears my name and does not invoke Allah’s blessings upon me.”


You will not be among the miserly.

Ali (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said,

“The miser is the one in whose presence I am mentioned but he does not supplicate for me.”

[At-Tirmidhi, Saheeh Al-Albani]



You will not be among those that Jibreel alayhi salaam made duaa against and the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam replied “Ameen”

It was narrated that Abu Hurayrah (may Allah be pleased with him) said:

The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) ascended the minbar and said: “Ameen, ameen, ameen.” It was said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, you ascended the minbar and said, ‘Ameen, ameen, ameen.” He said: “Jibreel came to me and said: ‘If Ramadan comes and a person is not forgiven, he will enter Hell and Allah will cast him far away. Say Ameen.’ So I said Ameen. He said: ‘O Muhammad, if both or one of a person’s parents are alive and he does not honour them and he dies, he will enter Hell and Allah will cast him far away. Say Ameen.’ So I said Ameen. He said: ‘If you are mentioned in a person’s presence and he does not send blessings upon you and he dies, he will enter Hell and Allah will cast him far away. Say Ameen.’ So I said Ameen.”

[ibn Hibbaan, Saheeh Al-Albani]



You will be among the closest to the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam on a Day that will cause a child’s hair to become grey.

Ibn Mas’ood (May Allah be pleased with him) reported:

The Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said: “The people who will be nearest to me on the Day of Resurrection will be those who supplicate Allah more often for me.”

[At-Tirmidhi, Hasan li ghayrihi Al-Albani]

Imam Nawawi rahimahullah states, “Nearest to me” signifies “those who are most entitled to my intercession”.



Allah will love you and forgive you


because following the sunnah of the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam. Allah says,

“Say (O Muhammad to mankind): “If you (really) love Allah then follow me , Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (3:31)



Your love for the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam will increase.

When you love someone, your mind is filled with thoughts of them. By constantly making duaa for the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam

whenever his name is mentioned, you are making a conscious effort to remember him. Put in the effort to internalize the salawat whenever you make them and understand who you are making duaa for,

and inshaAllah your love for him will increase tremendously, alayhi salaatu wa salaam.

............

Why do we Send Salawat on the Prophet?

Of the greatest blessings that Allah ta’ala has given to mankind is sending the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam as our guide and the Qur’an as our Book.

Allah ta’ala describes this bounty that He gave to the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam in the Qur’an,
وَرَفَعْنَا لَكَ ذِكْرَكَ
and We have raised for you your mention. (94:4)

Allah azza wa jal says,

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. (33:56)


........

The Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam loved this ummah so much so that on his deathbed he kept repeating “ummati, ummati“, “my Ummah! my Ummah!”

He is the one who said, “I wish to see my brothers!”  

The Companions said, “O Messenger of Allah! Are not we your brothers?”

He sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, “You are my Companions, but my brothers are those who have not come into the world yet.” [Muslim]

.......

He is the one who made duaa for you after every prayer!

A’ishah radi Allahu anha narrated
“Once, when I saw the Prophet in a good mood,
I said to him: “O Messenger of Allah! Supplicate to Allah for me!

” So, he said: “O Allah! Forgive ‘A’ishah her past and future sins, what she has hidden, as well as what she has made apparent.”

So, I began smiling, to the point that my head fell into the lap of the Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam out of joy.

The Messenger of Allah said to me: “Does my supplication make you happy?” I replied: “And how can your supplication not make me happy?”

He then said: “By Allah, it is the supplication that I make for my Ummah in every prayer.”

[Narrated in Al Bazzaar, Hasan Al-Albani]


.............

How to Send Salawat

Ibn Hajar rahimahullah says,

The wording of dhikrs is tawqeefi (i.e., acts of worship which must be done as prescribed in the texts), and they have special characteristics that cannot be subject to analogy. So one must adhere to the wording of salat and salam as it was narrated in ahadith. ( and not described or made by people regardless of who they are)


The most important aspect of sending salawat is that it is done in accordance with what the Prophet himself taught us; as a condition for the acceptance of deeds is that they are from the sunnah of Rasul Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

After the mention of his name, one should say: sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam or alayhi salaatu wa salaam which can be translated as: may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him or peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. One can also say any duaa that sends peace and blessings upon him such as: Allahumma sali wa sallim alaa Nabiyyina Muhammad, O Allah send Your praise, prayers and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad.

For other times such as in salah or on Fridays, one should say what the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam taught us from the sunnah. There are two authentic narrations with different wordings:

Abu Muhammad Ka’b bin Ujrah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam came to us and we asked him, “O Messenger of Allah, we already know how to greet you (i.e., say As-salamu alaykum), but how should we supplicate for you?” He said, “Say:

`Allahumma salli `ala Muhammadin, wa `ala aali Muhammadin, kama sallaita `ala aali Ibrahima, innaka Hamidum Majid. Allahumma barik `ala Muhammadin, wa `ala aali Muhammadin, kama barakta `ala aali Ibrahima, innaka Hamidum Majid [O Allah, exalt the mention of Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as you exalted the family of Ibrahim. You are Praised and Glorious. O Allah, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as You blessed the family of Ibrahim. You are Praised and Glorious.]”’ [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

Abu Humaid As-Sa’idi (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Companions of the Messenger of Allah said: “O Messenger of Allah! How should we supplicate for you?” He sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam replied, “Say: `Allahumma salli `ala Muhammadin wa `ala azwajihi wa dhurriyyatihi, kama sallaita `ala Ibrahima; wa barik `ala Muhammadin wa `ala azwajihi wa dhurriyyatihi, kama barakta `ala Ibrahima, innaka Hamidum-Majid [O Allah, exalt the mention of Muhammad and his wives and offspring as You exalted the mention of the family of Ibrahim, and bless Muhammad and the wives and the offspring of Muhammad as you blessed the family of Ibrahim. You are the Praised, the Glorious'].” [Al-Bukhari and Muslim]

..........

Can we Send Salawat for the Prophet with those Traveling to Madinah?

A modern practice we see nowadays is asking those who are going for hajj/umrah and will be visiting the Prophet’s Masjid to say, “send my salaams to the Prophet,” however this is not from the sunnah nor has it been recorded that any of the righteous predecessors did this. Shaykh ibn al-Uthaymeen rahimahullah beautifully states,

We say: if you send salaam upon him from the farthest ends of the earth, your salaam will reach him, because Allah has appointed angels who travel about the earth, and if anyone sends salaams upon the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), they convey that salaam to the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). So if we say now, “O Allah, send blessings and peace upon the Messenger of Allah,” our salaam will be transmitted to him. In prayer we say, “Al-salaamu ‘alayka ayyuha’l-nabiyyu wa rahmat-Allahi wa barakatuhu (Peace be upon you, O Prophet, and the mercy of Allah and His blessings),” and the salaam is transmitted to him…

I have heard some people saying in Madinah, “My father asked me to give his salaams to the Messenger,” but this is wrong. The Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) is not alive so that the salaams of a living person may be passed on to him. If your father sends salaams to the Messenger, the salaam is conveyed by those who are more able than you to convey it and are more trustworthy than you , namely the angels.
So there is no need for that, and we say: You are where you are, wherever you are on earth you can say, “Peace be upon you, O Prophet,” and it will reach him faster and more reliably than that.
Majmoo’ Fataawa aShaykh Ibn Baz, 23/416, 417
Send your salaam on him now and it will reach him by the will of Allah.

..........

Obligatory and Recommended Times to send Salawat

We’ve established that sending salawat on the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam is a noble deed in Islam, however there are prescribed times for it and times that this act is not recommended or allowed. Furthermore, for specific supplications that the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam taught us, we must only say what he narrated without any modifications.

The obligatory and recommended times are as follows:
1.   During the tashahhud in prayer. Shaykh Al-Albani rahimahullah gives a detailed description on sending salah in the tashahhud as well as some important notes on this act in general in his book “The Prophet’s Prayer Described”.

2.   After the Adhan. Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin Al-’As (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam saying, “When you hear the Adhan, repeat what the Mu’adhdhin says. Then ask Allah to exalt my mention because everyone who does so will receive in return ten rewards from Allah. Then beseech Allah to grant me Al-Wasilah, which is a high rank in Jannah, fitting for only one of Allah’s slaves; and I hope that I will be that man. If any one asks Al-Wasilah for me, it becomes incumbent upon me to intercede for him.” [Muslim] In another hadeeth, Sa`d bin Abu Waqqas (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, “He who says after the Adhan: `Ash-hadu an la ilaha illallah Wah-dahu la sharika Lahu; wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan `abduhu wa Rasuluhu, radhitu Billahi Rabban, wa bi Muhammadin Rasulan, wa bil Islami Deenan [I testify that there is no true god except Allah Alone; He has no partners and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger; I am content with Allah as my Rubb, with Muhammad as my Messenger and with Islam as my Deen],’ his sins will be forgiven.” [Muslim]

3.   When entering and leaving the Masjid.

4.   Fridays. Aus bin Aus (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, “Among the best of your days is Friday; so supplicate Allah more often for me in it , for your supplications will be displayed to me.” He was asked: “O Messenger of Allah! How will our blessings be displayed to you when your decayed body will have mixed with the earth?” He sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam replied, “Allah has prohibited the earth from consuming the bodies of the Prophets.” [Abu Dawood, Saheeh Al-Albani]

5.   Daily Adhkar (remembrances) of the morning and evening. Abu Dardaa (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, “whoever sends blessings on me ten times in the morning and ten times in the evening will receive my intercession.” [Al-Tabarani] This hadeeth is disputed amongst the scholars of hadeeth; Shaykh Al-Albani declared its chain weak while Al-Sakhawi and Imam ibnul Qayyim declared it authentic. However, sending salawat on the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam daily is still recommended based on the hadeeth, Ibn Mas’ood (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said: “The people who will be nearest to me on the Day of Resurrection (i.e., receive my intercession) will be those who supplicate Allah more often for me.” [At-Tirmidhi, Hasan Al-Albani]
 
6.   When his name is mentioned in a gathering/written form etc. The Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam said, “The miser is the one in whose presence I am mentioned but he does not supplicate for me.” [At-Tirmidhi, Saheeh Al-Albani] It is important to note though that it is established among the scholars that it is not obligatory to send salawat on the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam every time his name is mentioned. Shaykh Al-Munajjid from IslamQA explains in detail here.

..........

Times When it is not Allowed or Disliked to send Salawat

Imam ibnul Qayyim rahimahullah stated,
Sending blessings upon the Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam, although it is one of the best and most beloved of deeds to Allah, every dhikr has its own place and time, where no other can take its place.
Jala’ al-Afhaam (1/424)

These times include:
1.   When slaughtering the animal. The sunnah of slaughtering is to say only “Bismillah Allahu Akbar”, “With the Name of Allah, Allah is Greater [than everything else]”.

2.   When sneezing. It was narrated from Nafi’ that a man sneezed beside Ibn ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with them) and said “Alhamdulillah was-salaam ‘alaa Rasul Allah (Praise be to Allah and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah).” Ibn ‘Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) said: “And I say, ‘Alhamdulillah was-salaam ‘alaa Rasul Allah (Praise be to Allah and peace be upon the Messenger of Allah)’ – but this is not what the Messenger of Allah sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam taught us. He taught us to say: ‘Alhamdulillahi ‘alaa kulli haal (Praise be to Allah in all situations).’” [Al-Tirmidhi, Saheeh Al-Albani]

3.   When bowing (ruku’) or prostrating (sujood) in prayer, or any times in the salah other than the tashahhud.

4.   If you come upon an ayah in the Qur’an that has the name or mention of the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

..........


Writing SAWS/SAS/PBUH etc


The Muslim is one who strives to do ihsaan (utmost good) in all of their deeds, even a seemingly simple deed such as making a duaa for the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

Dr Saleh as Saleh rahimahullah mentions a few opinions on writing abbreviations in a short 20 min lecture which can be listened to here.
Shaykh ibn Baaz rahimahullah said when asked about the validity of writing SAWS or the like:

“The Sunnah is to write the entire phrase “sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam,” since it is a kind of supplication, and supplication is worship, .....
Fatwawa Al-Lajnatid-Daa’imah #18770

Imam Suyooti rahimahullah (as mentioned in the lecture by Dr. Saleh) also affirms this by saying, “It is disliked to resort to these abbreviations when making salah and salaam on the Prophet sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam.”
Shaykh Ahmad Shakir said, “It is the absurd tradition of some of the later generations that they abbreviate the writing of ’sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam.’” [Musnad Imam Ahmad]



We ask Allah to make us among those who love, follow and obey His Prophet and we implore Him to make us among those who will be with His Messenger on the Day of Judgment and to grant us his companionship in The Highest Gardens of Jannah. Ameen.

May the most perfect and complete Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon our Messenger and Prophet, and Allah the Most High knows best.

سْمِ اللهِ، وَالصَّلَاةُ وَالسَّلَّامُ عَلَى رَسُولِ اللهِ

JazakAllah khair respected sister

Allah (subhanhu wa taala) says:

لَقَدۡ جَآءَڪُمۡ رَسُولٌ۬ مِّنۡ أَنفُسِڪُمۡ عَزِيزٌ عَلَيۡهِ مَا عَنِتُّمۡ حَرِيصٌ عَلَيۡڪُم بِٱلۡمُؤۡمِنِينَ رَءُوفٌ۬ رَّحِيمٌ۬

Verily, there has come unto you a Messenger from amongst yourselves.

It grieves him that you should receive any injury or difficulty.

He  is anxious over you
(to be rightly guided ...and  be saved from the punishment of the Hell-fire),

for the believers (he  is) full of sympathy, kindness , and is merciful.
 
(Surah Tauba Ayat-128)

وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

You can say:

1.  Jazakum ALLAH khaira = May ALLAH reward you with good
    Here jazakum (plural or in general maybe when you don't know the gender of the one you're replying to)
             jazak (for male singular)
             jazaki (for female singular)

2. Barak ALLAH feekum = may ALLAH bless you
           feekum = plural
           feek = male singular
           feeki = female singular

These are the main phrases for thanking with a du`aa.

for greeting this phrase can be used as well:

Hayyakum ALLAH = May ALLAH greet you/maintain your life

If you need any other phrases let us know

ma`a salam

wa iyyak jazak ALLAH is a reply to jazak ALLAH khair which means may ALLAH reward you with the best too:

wa = and
iyyak = you (for male)

for ex like in al Fatiha iyyaka na`budu = it's You we worship

akhi-l-Kareem = my honored brother ( a respectful way to address a brother)

but the core is the same Jazakum ALLAH khair (-a,-an) the meaning is the same may ALLAH reward you with the best

وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

"Al7amduliLLAHir-Rabb-il-`alameen = All the praises and thanks be to Allâh, the Lord of the 'Alamîn (mankind, jinns and all that exists).
 this is what you recite several times daily Smiley which is the 2nd ayah of Al-Fatiha.

as for was-salat was-salam `ala rasoul ALLAH wa `ala alihi sa7bihi ajma`een = peace and blessings (of ALLAH) be upon the Messneger of ALLAH (Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم), upon his  family and Companions all together.

as for addressing sisters similar to akhi-l-kareem, you could use oukhti-l-kareem = my honored/respected sister (oukht = sister. oukhti = my sister) i suppose it can be use addressing women of all ages. I'll make sure about another phrase i have on mind and will get back to u in sha' ALLAH

ma`a salam

وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

brother, usually you can see this for example, when a scholar or a  shaikh starts a lecture, as an example, it can be not necessarily this wording but shorter or longer version of it. Or let's say usually a khutba (friday lecture) always starts with al 7amdulillah = all the praise and thanks are to ALLAH. Or if you noticed, the fatwas we post here (from islam-qa and islamweb) islam-qa always start a fatwa with Praise be to ALLAH = al hamduliLLAH; islamweb usually (All perfect praise be to Allaah, The Lord of the Worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم  is His slave and Messenger).

So usually when you start a topic or a speech u start with praising ALLAH (سبحانه و تعالى ), testifying to tawheed (Oneness of ALLAH) and sending salawaat on the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم, like in the ayah from Al Ahzab:

56. Allâh sends His Salât (Graces, Honours, Blessings, Mercy, etc.) on the Prophet (Muhammad SAW) and also His angels too (ask Allâh to bless and forgive him). O you who believe! Send your Salât on (ask Allâh to bless) him (Muhammad SAW), and (you should) greet (salute) him with the Islâmic way of greeting (salutation i.e. As­Salâmu 'Alaikum).

wa ALLAH a`lam
