Mention of Prophet’s Family in Salaat

Mention of Prophet’s Family in Salaat

 

As it is necessary for every Muslim to love the Prophet’s Family (Ahle Bait), that’s why their mention has been ordained a part of Salaat.  Fasting, Haj, Zakaat and charity are not things that each and every Muslim performs day in and day out.

 

Sick people don’t fast, needy people don’t give Zakaat, Hajj is obligatory on a person with means of doing so only once in a lifetime.  The intent of Allah Most High is that the mention of the Prophet’s Family shouldn’t cease at all, that Muslims should repeatedly express love for them.  Thus, their mention was made a part of Salaat.  In Salaat, Durood is recited.  There is Hadith in Sunan Daraqutni about Durood:

 

Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abu Mas‘ud Ansari (May Allah be well pleased with him), he says: The Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:  If person offers a Salaat in which Durood on me and my family is not recited, that Salaat is not accepted at all.  (Sunan Daraqutni, Hadith No. 1359)

 

There is a Hadith in Sahih Bukhari:

 

Translation: Hadhrat Ka’ab Bin ‘Ujrah (May Allah be well pleased with him) told Hadhrat Abdur Rahmaan Bin Abu Laila:  Should I not give you a beautiful gift, which I heard from the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)?  He said:  Why not!  You give me that gift.  Then Hadhrat Ka’ab said:  We asked the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam):  How should we send Durood on your family?  Allah Most High has taught us how to greet them with Salaam.  Then the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said:  Say this:  Allahumma Salli ‘Ala (Sayyidina) Muhammadin Wa ‘Ala Aali (Sayyidina) Muhammadin Kama Sallayta ‘Ala (Sayyidina) Ibraheema Wa ‘Ala Aali Sayyidina Ibraheema Innaka Hameedum Majeed.  Allahumma Barik ‘Ala (Sayyidina) Muhammadin Wa ‘Ala Aali (Sayyidina) Muhammadin Kama Barakta ‘Ala (Sayyidina) Ibraheema Wa ‘Ala Aali Sayyidina Ibraheema Innaka Hameedum Majeed.  (Sahih Bukhari, Hadith No. 3370)
