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

    Volume 4, Number 138:

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

    Some Muslim scholars hold that it is obligatory to send salutations
    to the Prophet, i.e. invoke blessings upon him, each time one hears
    his name mentioned. They, like Al-Tahawi and Al-Halimi, base their
    argument on a hadith recorded by Tirmidhi, which he grades as sound,
    from Abu Hurairah, that the Prophet, (salla llahu alayhi wa sallam)
    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." (Related by
    Tirmidhi, who said it is an authentic hadith)

    In a report related by Abu Dharr we read, "the Prophet, (salla llahu
    alayhi wa sallam) 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, (salla llahu alayhi wa sallam) only once while in a
    gathering is obligatory. After that it is no longer necessary, though
    it is preferred to do so. This is based on a hadith from Abu Hurairah
    that the Prophet, (salla llahu alayhi wa sallam) said, "If some
    people sitting together in an assembly do not remember Allah in it,
    nor invoke Allah's blessings upon His Prophet, (salla llahu alayhi wa
    sallam) they will be sorry on the Day of Judgment. Allah may either
    punish them or forgive them." (Tirmidhi)

    Hey Saadia (Ms. Encyclopedia Islamica ),

    You mind finding out why people kiss their fingers and put them over their eyes everytime they hear our Prophets name? This phenomena i have noticed mostly in Pakistan.

        I would be very suspicious of any "Islamic" ritual done in only one small part of the Muslim world....
        Muslims are so good at dividing that they can divide the atom. If you see two Muslims, probably they belong to 3 parties.

          To the best of MY knowledge, the answer is yes.
          What is the correct method to do it?

          Some one else can explain it......

            sending salutations to the Prophet (pbuh) is obligatory as can be proven by many verses of the Holy Quran and the Hadith....

            kissing the thumbs and other such practises are forms of bid'ah (innovations) and r seen mostly in the sub-continenet....
            Both Halal & Haram r evident but between them r doubtful things, most ppl have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from suspicious things saves his religion & honor, & whoever indulges in suspicious things indulges in Haram.

              Don't be an extremist Armugal.


              ------------------
              We, Ahlul Bayt (chosen descendants of the Holy Prophet), hold such central and balancing position in religion that those who are deficient in understanding and acting upon its principles, will have to come to us for reformation, and those who are overdoing it have got to learn moderation from us.

                  IT'S NOT A MUST, BUT VERY RECOMENDED. PROPHET MUHAMMAD DISPRAISED THOSE WHO DON'T MAKE SALAT AND SALAM ON THE PROPHET WHEN HIS NAME IS MENTIONED. PROPHET MUHAMMAD CALLED HIM: BAKHEEL.

                  SO, IT IS RECOMENDED TO MAKE SALAT AND SALAM ON PROPHET MUHAMMAD.
