Saying (Alayhis Salaam) for angels

Q:

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?

Bismillaah

A:

1. It is recommended, not waajib.

2. No.

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