Question text Is it obligatory to recite salawat after verse no. 56 of Surah Ahzab is heard or read or read by one self?
categorization: Qur’an and the Rules
Some Jurist have considered it as obligatory. In the verse Allah Ta’ala is informing Muslims of one of those things which He himself does, i.e. sending blessing on the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.). So even if it is not obligatory, a true Muslim won’t remain silent. It is highly commendable for a Muslim to send blessings and salutations on the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.a.), even if he hears this verse in the midst of his Namaz. Sayyed Mohammed Musawi
