Question: Is it disrespectful to use shortcuts to type blessings on the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) or the like?
Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,
Thank you for your important question.
No, it is not disrespectful to use shortcuts to type blessings on the Messenger of Allah (Allah bless him and give him peace) or the like.
One should do whatever best expresses veneration of the one being blessed or praised, while also showing as much care and concern for the time needed to complete the duties to Allah and to others.
I pray this helps.
