Answer:

 

Salutations to say saws after Prophet (saws) name

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Question: Can you please tell me what is the sharee ruling with regards to those muslims, who knowingly don`t add `Salallaahu Alaihi Wasallam` after the name of hadrat Mohammad (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasallam), & other sahab-e-karam (Radiallah Ta`ala Anhum); & the wives of Hadrat Mohammad (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) etc?


Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 56:

Allah and His Angels send blessings on the Prophet: O ye that believe! Send ye blessings on him and salute him with all respect.

 

When the above aayah of the Quran was revealed the companions asked the Prophet (saws) how should the believers send salutations to him (saws).

 

Abu Mas'ud Al-Ansari reported the following account from Bashir ibn Sa'd: "I asked Prophet (saws) 'O Messenger of Allah (saws), Allah has commanded us to invoke blessings upon you. How should we do it?' The Messenger of Allah (saws) remained silent until we wished we had not asked him. Then he told us to say,

'Allahumma salli 'ala muhammadin wa 'ala ali muhammadin kama sallayta 'ala ali ibrahima, wa barik 'ala muhammadin wa 'ala ali muhammadin kama barakta 'ala ibrahima wa 'ala ali ibrahima; fil 'alamin, innaka hammidum majeed. {Narrated by Muslim.}

(O Allah, bless Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as You blessed the family of Ibrahim, and give baraka to Muhammad and the family of Muhammad as You gave baraka to Ibrahim and the family of Ibrahim. In all the worlds, You are worthy of Praise and Glorious)

 

Allah Subhanah Himself has Commanded the believers to send salutations to the Prophet (saws). The scholars in Islam have differed in their opinion whether it is obligatory to send salutations upon the Prophet (saws) each time his name is mentioned, or whether sending one salutation in one gathering would suffice.

 

Fiqh-us-Sunnah Fiqh 4.138

Topic: Sending Salutations to the Prophet on Hearing His Name. Is this Obligatory?

Some Muslim scholars hold that it is obligatory to send salutations upon the Prophet, i.e. invoke blessings upon him, each time one hears his (saws) name mentioned. They, like Al-Tahawi and Al-Halimi, base their argument on a hadith recorded by Tirmidhi and related from Abu Hurairah, that the Prophet (saws) said, "May the nose of the person in whose presence I am mentioned be covered with dirt if he does not invoke blessings upon me. And let the nose of that person be smeared with dust who finds the month of Ramadan but lets it come to an end without securing pardon for himself. And may the nose of the person be smeared wlth dust whose aged parents, both of them or one of them, are still living, and who fails them (i.e. by serving them) to enter Paradise."

In a report related by Abu Dharr Ghaffari "the Prophet (saws) said, 'The most miserly among people is the one who fails to invoke blessings upon me when my name is mentioned in his or her presence'."

Other scholars are of the opinion that invoking Allah's blessings upon the Prophet (saws) only once while in a gathering is obligatory. After that it is no longer obligatory, though it is preferred to do so. This is based on a hadith from Abu Hurairah that the Prophet (saws) said, "If some people sitting together in an assembly do not remember Allah in it, nor invoke Allah's blessings upon His Prophet (saws), they will be sorry on the Day of Judgment. Allah may either punish them or forgive them." (Related by Tirmidhi)

 

To make the supplication radhe-Allaho anho (may Allah be pleased with them) when the name of a noble companion or a wife of the Prophet (saws) is mentioned is not obligatory, but amongst the preferred etiquette of one who loves the Messenger (saws), his noble companions and his blessed and chaste family.

 

Your Question: It`s a disputed Issue as to whether or not, Hadrat Mohammad (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasallam) married Maria-al-Qurtabiya? Or did she remain a concubine after she gave birth to Hazrat Mohammad (Salallaahu Alaihi Wasallam`s) son Ibrahim (Alai Hisalam)? Please calrify for me.


To the best of our knowledge, there is no authentic record or tradition which states that the Messenger of Allah (saws) freed and/or married through Nikaah Hadrat Maria Kibtiya, either before or after she gave birth to their son Ibraheem. And Allah Alone Knows Best.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
