Ask The Imam Question and Answer

1080 I was asked this question and could not answer, please help.

After Rasoolullah (Sallahu Alaihi Wasallam) left this world did any of the Four Caliphs (R.A) or any one of the 124,000 Sahabas (R.A) do Salaato Sallam?
You must inform the questioner that the wording of the question is wrong. Instead, the question should be did any Companion prohibit the sending of salutations and blessings upon the best of all creations, peace and blessings of Allah (S.W.T) be upon him? Did any Companion ignore the verse (33:56) commanding Muslims to send Salam and Salat upon the Final Messenger?

Did any Companion ignore the countless AHadith instructing Muslims to send blessings upon the Mercy of all Mankind? The burden is on the questioner to prove that sending Salat Salam is forbidden. It is not our duty to prove it is permissible, especially when there are so many verses and AHadith extolling the virtues of sending salutations upon the perfect Prophet (S.A.W). None of these AHadith prohibit Salat Salam standing, collectively and loudly.

Please refer to previous questions referring to this topic on our website.
