Pearl of Wisdom

'Islam has seven fundamentals: the first is reason, on which perseverance is founded. The second is maintenance of one's honour and honest speech. The third is proper recitation of the Qur'an. The fourth is to love for the sake of Allah and to hate for the sake of Allah. The fifth is the right due to the household of the Prophet (SAWA) and their guardianship. The sixth is the right of one's fellow brothers and their protection. The seventh is close contact with people through fair means.?

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
