Answered by Shaykh Amjad Rasheed

Is it permissible to send blessings on the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) while bowing or prostrating in prayer?

Answer:
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Yes, it is permissible to send blessings on the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) while bowing and prostrating in prayer. However, it is superior to busy oneself with the legally determined remembrances for bowing and prostrating. It is praiseworthy during prostration to send blessings on the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) in addition to the legally determined remembrance, as it is du’a and an etiquette of du’a and a means to acceptance.

Sending blessings on the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) when his name is mentioned is sunnah for the one in prayer, even while reciting the Fatiha. This is mentioned in Hashiya Jamal (348/1) and other sources.

السؤال: هل يجوز لنا أن نصلي على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم في الركوع والسجود ؟ وإذا ذُكر النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم في حضرتي وأنا أصلي فهل أصلي عليه أم أشتغل بالذكر المشروع في الصلاة؟ وإذا قرأت آيةً فيها ذكر النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم أو قرأ الإمام آية هكذا وكنت مأموناً فهل أصلي عليه ؟ الجواب : نعم تجوز الصلاةُ على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم في الركوع والسجود في الصلاة ، لكن الأولى الاشتغالُ بالذكر الوارد فيهما عن النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم ، لكن لو زاد على ذلك في السجود الصلاةَ على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فهو حسنٌ لأنها من جملةِ الدعاءِ وآدابِهِ ومن الأسبابِ المقربةِ للإجابة . ويسنُّ للمصلي الصلاةُ على النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم متى مرَّ ذكرُه ولو أثناءَ الفاتحة كما صرحوا به ، وانظره في “حاشية الجمل” (1/348) وغيرها .
