Tashahhud of Hazrat ibnu Masood (Radiyallahu Anhu)

Answered as per Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: My question is that I’ve heard that it can be wrong to say assalamu ‘alaika ayyuhan Nabiyuu because the prophet sallallahu alaihi wassalam has passed away and instead we should say al-salaam ‘ala al-nabi as said by Ibn Masood in Sahih bukhari. Now, majority scholars say that we should not change tashahud after the death of prophet sallallahu alaihi wassalam but my question is Ibn Masood knows better than all of the current scholars because he was a sahaba so shouldn’t we follow him because he knows better the prophet sallallahu alahi wassalam?

Another issue I have is that I came across a hadith where prophet sallallahu alaihi wassalam said that no supplication is accepted unless we send peace and blessings on him. I don’t remember the source of this hadith so maybe you know. So can u tell me if it mandatory to send blessings on the prophet sallallahu alaihi wassalam every time we make dua and if we forget, that dua will be incomplete?



1. The Hadith of Bukhari Shareef narrated by Hazrat Abdullah bin Masood (Radiyallahu Anhu) contains the words السلام عليك أيها النبي not as you have stated.

2. The Hadith appears in Tirmizi Shareef (no. 486)

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

حدثنا أبو نعيم قال حدثنا الأعمش عن شقيق بن سلمة قال قال عبد الله كنا إذا صلينا خلف النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم قلنا السلام على جبريل وميكائيل السلام على فلان وفلان فالتفت إلينا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فقال إن الله هو السلام فإذا صلى أحدكم فليقل التحيات لله والصلوات والطيبات السلام عليك أيها النبي ورحمة الله وبركاته السلام علينا وعلى عباد الله الصالحين فإنكم إذا قلتموها أصابت كل عبد لله صالح في السماء والأرض أشهد أن لا إله إلا الله وأشهد أن محمدا عبده ورسوله (بخاري – باب التشهد في الآخرة #831)

عن عمر بن الخطاب قال : إن الدعاء موقوف بين السماء والأرض لا يصعد منه شيء حتى تصلي على نبيك صلى الله عليه و سلم (ترمذي #486)
