Pearl of Wisdom

'Verily the Prophet (SAWA) once passed by a pile of wheat, so he placed his hand in and his fingers hit upon some moisture, at which he asked the vendor, 'What is this O vendor of wheat?' to which he replied, 'The rain fell on it O Prophet of Allah.' The Prophet then asked him, 'Then why did you not place it at the top of the pile that people might see it?! He who swindles us is not of us.?

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
