The place of the Salātl Ibrahimiyyah is the final Tashahhud (2)


O Shaykh, may Allaah bless you and your knowledge.

Does a person recite the Salāt upon the Prophet ﷺ in the first Tashahhud or does he recite the Tashahhud only?

What’s the correct position in this affair?

May Allah reward you with good


The Majority of the scholars are upon the place of the Salātl Ibrahimiyyah being the last Tashahhud, as for the first then one suffices with the Tashahhud without the Salāt.

Imām Ibn- Ul-Qayyim, may Allah have mercy upon him, said in “Zādl Ma’ād” (1/245):

“There hasn’t been a single hadīth at all reported that he recited the Salāt upon him and his family in the (first) Tashahhud, nor would he seek refuge from the punishment of the grave, and the punishment of the fire and the trials and tribulations of life and death, and that of the trials and tribulations of the Masīh Ad-Dajāl.

And whoever preferred it; then it was only due to what they understood from the generalities of some wording, but it has been correctly clarified that its place and constriction is with the final Tashahhud.”
