Singing naats and singing Durood in a chorus

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: Is singing of Nath Shareef allowed in Islam? Further is sending Salaam on Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) in standing position and by
singing it in a group allowed?



  1. Refer to
  2. While standing before the grave of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) one should convey the Salaam individually with utmost respect and reverence. Singing the Salaam collectively in a chorus form is incorrect.

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