Occasions Legislated to Send Salaah upon the Messenger (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam)

Scholar of Hadeeth, Shaikh Rabee’ Ibn Haadee al-Madkhalee (hafidhahullaah) wrote in his book The Status of the Messenger and His Rights:

Then there are those occasions when it is legislated that salaah should be sent upon the Messenger (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) as Imaam Ibnul-Qayyim (rahimahullaah) mentioned in his book Jalaa’ul-Afhaam fis-Salaat was-salaam ‘alaa Khayril-An’aam (A Clarification for the Intellects Regarding Sending Blessings and Peace on the Best of Creation) :


1. At the conclusion of the qunoot
2. In the funeral Prayer
3. In the khutab (sermons) such as the Friday khutba and the khutba delivered on the day of ‘Eid
4. When responding to the call of the mu`adhdhin and when standing for prayer
5. When making du’aa (supplication)
6. When entering and exiting the mosque
7. In the gatherings of the people, before they depart
8. When his (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) name is mentioned, and the scholars have differed regarding this
9. When leaving from a sitting to which one was invited
10. When concluding a sitting
11. When writing his (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) name
12. During the nikkah

[Note: Shaikh Rabee’ preceded this list by opening the chapter – The Obligation of Sending Blessings Upon the Messenger (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) – with proofs and scholarly verdicts (from Ibn Kathir and Imam Shafi’ee and others) supporting the obligation of sending the salaah upon the Prophet (salallaahu ‘alaihi wa sallam) in the last tashahhud; and without it, the salat is incorrect.]
