Saying (Alayhis Salaam) for angels


1) When hearing the name of Allah’s angels e.g Jibreel, is it wajib to say,”Peace be upon them”.

2) I have also read that it is a right of the Jurists, Legists, and doctors that we have to pray for them, is this classed as wajib?



1. It is recommended, not waajib.

2. No.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
