Ask The Imam Question and Answer

5 Is it Sunnat to perform the Salaat-us-Salaam?
The terminology of Islam is that Sunnah that is the saying, action or silent approval of the Prophet (S.A.W). It is also used especially for the actions of the four rightly guided Caliphs.

The Quran says Surely Allah and his Angels shower their blessing on the Nabi (Prophet of Allah – the communicator of hidden news). O you who believe send upon him (Divine) Blessings and salute him fully well with best salutation.
(Al-Quran, Surah Al-Ahzab, 56, (Kanzull Imaan P551)).

In this verse there is no mention of any conditions or restrictions - so as long as it is a suitable Salaat-us-Salaam it may be offered individually or in a gathering.

In numerous Hadith the superiority of sending blessing and salutations upon the Prophet (S.A.W) is highlighted.
