Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Seekersguidance.org

Answered by Ustadh Tabraze Azam

Question: As salam alaykum,

Is it permitted to send blessings on the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) at the end of the qunut supplication in the Witr prayer, and to say “sayyidina” in the tashahhud?

What books can I use to teach my kids prayer?

Answer: Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

I pray that this message finds you well, insha’Allah.

Yes, both sending blessings (salawat) on the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) at the end of the qunut supplication in the Witr prayer, and saying “our master” (sayyidina) in the final sitting (tashahhud) are permitted and virtuous actions.

As for useful manuals to learn your fiqh, strive to get hold of: (1) The Absolute Essentials of Islam by Shaykh Faraz Rabbani, and (2) Ascent to Felicity by Shaykh Faraz Khan.
