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
