Pearl of Wisdom

The Prophet (SAWA) used to visit the people of the ledge [of the mosque], who were his guests and had migrated to Medina without their families and belongings. The Prophet (SAWA) had lodged them on the ledges of the Mosque. They were four hundred men, and he greeted them every morning and every night. One day he came to them while some of them were mending their sandals, some were patching their garments, and some were cleaning their heads from lice. The Prophet (SAWA) used to provide them with half a bushel of dates every day. One of the men stood up and said, ?O Messenger of Allah! The dates you provide us with have burned our stomachs!' The Prophet (SAWA) said, 'If I could feed you the whole world surely I would have done it, but [know that] those among you who will live after me will be brought bowls [of food] in the morning and bowls in the evening, and each of you will have a shirt in the morning and another in the evening, and each of you will adorn your houses with curtains and carpets as the Ka'ba is adorned.' A man then rose and exclaimed, ?O Messenger of Allah! We are waiting eagerly for that time. When will it be?!' He (SAWA) said, 'Your time now is better than that time. When you fill your stomachs with the lawful, you might also fill it with the unlawful.?

Question : #101 Category: Holy Qur'an
Subject: What does 'Sali mean in the Quran
Question: What is the meaning of inna allaha wa malli'katuh yusaalona 3ala al-nabi?


This is what I don't understand from the meaning it says
Truly Allah and his angels pray upon/to Muhammad

Why does Allah pray upon/to Mohammed. Why does Allah pray?
Answer: Salaam alaykum,

A better translation of this verse would be: "Indeed Allah and His angels bless the Prophet; O you who have faith! Invoke blessings on him and invoke Peace upon him in a worthy manner." (Quran, 33:56, Quli Qara'i translation)

It is understood from this translation that the term 'sali' here does not mean pray, but rather means bless. Therefore, Allah is not praying to Muhammad (s); rather blessing him.

Fi amanillah
