Does Allah pray for Prophet Muhammed? A refutation of the propaganda and misinformation of Christian missionaries

The word “salat” can have more than one meaning based on the context. Just like homonyms, anyone who knows English would know that when I say:

“He will address a large audience”

It means I am not talking about “location” address but “speaking” address even though the spelling the same.

Following is a screen shot from lane’s lexicon, the most authentic historic Arabic to English dictionary. Please refer to a proper dictionary and not what they tell you at the church.

 Qur’an 33:56إِنَّ اللَّهَ وَمَلَائِكَتَهُ يُصَلُّونَ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ ۚ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا صَلُّوا عَلَيْهِ وَسَلِّمُوا تَسْلِيمًا – 

Translation: Indeed, Allah confers blessing upon the Prophet, and His angels [ask Him to do so]. O you who have believed, ask [ Allah to confer] blessing upon him and ask [ Allah to grant him] peace.

The word يُصَلُّونَ means “send blessings” and عَلَى means “over and upon”

Etymology of يُصَلُّونَ:

Third-person mescaline plural non-past active indicative of صَلَّى (Salā)

صَلَّى (Salā) means:

1.     To Pray, to worship.

2.     To perform salat

And the last one,

3. To bless someone (constructed with عَلَى)

As the word عَلَى has been used in 33:56, the proper meaning/translation becomes blessing.

So, Allah doesn’t pray.

So there has been some dishonest Christian missionaries here and there making a claim against the Quran claim that “Allah prays for Muhammed”. They quote from chapter 33 verse 56.  And they cherry pick this translation:


Verily, God and his angels pray for the prophet. O ye who believe! Pray for him and salute him with a salutation!

 [1] Quran (33:56)-

Edward Henry Palmer translation

They claim that this translation is the only correct translation, and they rest of them are just “deception” while providing now proof that it is. 

They also claim that the word “salah” or “yusaloon” means pray. This however is a blatant lie. Anyone who has basic understanding of languages they would know one word can mean two different things depending how it is used and where. Almost every single profound, verified translation of the Quran uses “bless” for this verse.

Even some of the most early non-Muslim’s translations of the Quran translated it into bless. Here a few examples:

Verily God and his angels bless the prophet: O true believers, do ye also bless him, and salute him with a respectful salutation.

 [2] Quran (33:56) George Sale translation. (Translated in 1734)

Verily, God and His Angels bless the Prophet! Bless ye Him, O Believers, and salute Him with salutations of Peace.

 [3] Quran (33:56) John Medows Rodwell translation (Translated in 1861)

Matter of fact this so common that every almost every single known and profound translation of the Quran uses the word “bless “.

God and His angels bless the Prophet. O believers, do you also bless him, and pray him peace.

 [4] Quran (33:56) Arthur John berry translation.


Allah sends His Salat (Graces, Honors, Blessings, Mercy, etc.) on the Prophet (Muhammed SAW) and also His angels too (ask Allah to bless and forgive him). O you who believe! Send your Salat on (ask Allah to bless) him (Muhammed SAW), and (you should) greet (salute) him with the Islamic way of greeting (salutation i.e., AsSalamu Alaikum). 

 [5] Quran (33:56) Muhsin Khan translation

Truly God and His angels invoke blessings upon the Prophet.”

 [6] Quran (33:56) The study Quran translation

Now Christian apologists as desperate they are to find valid error in the Quran will reply with “how can angels bless the prophet?”. Simple answer is they don’t. When the verse says “angels bless” it obviously means angels are praying to Allah to bless the prophet.

Because that’s how the word “bless works”. For example, when someone says “bless you” does that mean they are literally the ones blessing that individual? No! What they are saying is “God bless you” for short.

Meaning they are asking God or praying to God to bless that person. Same goes for another example.

When someone says “I give you my blessing” it simply means they are praying or asking God to bless them. This as simple as that!


Now Christian apologists will be using another tactic is by misusing Arabic dictionaries. They will use incomplete and unverified dictionaries which no Arabic speaker has heard of in their life. They will also misquote it often. The word “Salah” has different meanings.

While yes it does mean “pray” but that’s when it is applied to anyone other than Allah. When the word “Salah” is used on Allah it simply means bless. Every profound classical Tafsir even confirms this as bless.

The Command to say Salah upon the Prophet Al-Bukhari said: “Abu Al-`Aliyah said: “Allah’s Salah is His praising him before the angels, and the Salah of the angels is their supplication.”

Ibn `Abbas said: “They send blessings.” Abu `Isa At-Tirmidhi said: “This was narrated from Sufyan Ath-Thawri and other scholars, who said: `The Salah of the Lord is mercy, and the Salah of the angels is their seeking forgiveness. 

[7] Tafsir Ibn Kathir 33:56


Indeed, God and His angels bless the Prophet, Muhammed (s). O you who believe, invoke blessings on him and invoke peace upon him in a worthy manner, in other words, say: ‘O God, bless our master Muhammed and grant him peace’ (Allāhumma sallī ‘alā sayyidinā Muhammed wa-sallim).

 [8] Tafsir al Jalalayn 33:56

“Allah’s sending His blessings on His Prophet” means this: Allah is very kind to His Prophet: He praises him, blesses his work, exalts his name, and showers His mercies on him.” `

Blessings of the angels” means: “They love the Prophet most dearly and pray to Allah to bless him with the highest ranks, cause his religion and Shari’ah to flourish and exalt him to the laudable position. 

 [9] Tafhim al Quran 33:56

Lo! Allah and His angels shower blessings on the Prophet…). Abu Sa’id informed us> Ibn Abi ‘Amr al-Naysaburi> al-Hasan ibn Ahmad al-Makhladi> al-Mu’ammil ibn al-Hasan ibn ‘Isa> Muhammed ibn Yahya> Abu Hudhayfah> Sufyan> al-Zubayr ibn ‘Adiyy> ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn Abi Layla> Ka’b ibn ‘Ujrah who said:

 “It was said to the Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace: ‘We know how to salute you, but how do we invoke blessings on you?’

And so, this verse was revealed (Lo! Allah and His angels shower blessings on the Prophet. O ye who believe! Ask blessings on him and salute him with a worthy salutation)”. ‘Abd al-Rahman ibn Hamdan al-‘Adl informed us> Abu’l-‘Abbas Ahmad ibn ‘Isa al-Washsha’> Muhammed ibn Yahya al-Suli> al-Riyashi> al-Asma’i who said: 

“I heard al-Mahdi say from the pulpit of [the grand mosque of] al-Basrah: ‘Allah has commanded you with something that He Himself has started first when He said (Lo! Allah and His angels shower blessings on the Prophet. O ye who believe! Ask blessings on him and salute him with a worthy salutation). 

Through this, Allah has preferred the Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace, over all other messengers and singled you out from all other communities.

Do, therefore, meet Allah’s bounty with gratitude’”. I heard master Abu ‘Uthman al-Hafiz say that he heard Imam Sahl ibn Muhammed ibn Sulayman say:

 “The honour that Allah, exalted is He, bestowed upon our Prophet, Allah bless him and give him peace, by His saying (Lo! Allah and His angels shower blessings on the Prophet) are more far-reaching and more complete than the honour bestowed upon Adam, peace be upon him, when the angels were ordered to prostrate to him.

This is because it is not conceivable that Allah be with the angels upon the bestowal of that honour. However, Allah, exalted is He, has informed that He Himself showers blessings on the Prophet, and then He informed that the angels do shower blessings upon him.

 [10] Asbab Al-Nuzul 33:56

Salat from Allah is his mercy and pleasure, and salat from the angels is supplication and seeking forgiveness.

 [11] Tafsir Al Qurtubi 33:56

“Allah Almighty says and mentioned it: Indeed, Allah and his angels blesses upon Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him as Ali Narrated to me and said: Abu Saleh Narrated to us and Abu Saleh said: Muawiyah Narrated to me from Ali from Ibn Abbas concerning His saying i.e., Allah(swt):( Indeed, Allah confers blessing upon the Prophet, and His angels [ask Him to do so].

O you who have believed, ask [ Allah to confer] blessing upon him and ask [ Allah to grant him] peace.) he says: they send blessings upon Prophet. And it carries to say: meaning of that is that Allah showers Mercy upon Prophet and his Angels supplicate for him, and they ask for forgiveness and that is salat in the language of the Arabs from Other than Allah it is only supplication.

[12] Tafsir at Tabari 33:56

Allah Almighty’s saying: Indeed, Allah confers blessing upon the Prophet and His angels; Ibn Abbas said:(it) intends Indeed, Allah showers mercy upon the Prophet and Angels supplicate (Dua) for him. And from Ibn Abbas (is narrated) also” Yusalluna” means they bless. And


*It is said: the Salat from Allah is the mercy and from Angels is Asking for forgiveness. (O you who have believed, ask [ Allah to confer] blessing upon him i.e., supplicate (Dua) for him for Mercy and Abu Aliya said: Salat of Allah is His praise upon him (i.e., Prophet) and Salat of Angels is Supplication (Dua) i.e., for the Prophet.

 [13] Tafsir Al Baghawi 33:56

As for the Salat of the lord the most High and Exalted, then it is pardoning for the Prophet(saw); and as for the salat of the angles then it is seeking of forgiveness for the Prophet(saw)

[14] Tafsir Muqatil bin Sulayman 33:56

“The word: صلوة is used in the Arabic language to convey the sense of: Mercy (rahmah), prayer (du’a), and praise (madh and thana’). The Salah attributed to Allah Almighty in the cited verse means His sending of mercy, but Salah from angels denotes their prayer for him, and the sense of Salah (durood) from common believers is a combination of du’a (prayer) and thana’ (praise).

Most commentators have given these very meanings and Imam al-Bukhari has reported from Abul ‘Aliyyah that the Salah of Allah Almighty means the honor accorded to him and the praise showered on him before the angels.”

[15] Ma’riful Qur’an, Vol. 7 pg. 288

Imam Bukhari said: “According to Abul Aliyah the meaning of the salawat of Allah Almighty to the Prophet is magnification/praise that He gives to him. And the salawat of the angels to the Prophet is their supplication.

Ibn ‘Abbas explained that what is meant by Allah sending salawat is that He sends His blessings.

Abu Isa Tidmidhi said that Sufyan and not only one or two scholars who said that the salawat of Allah to the Prophet is His mercy to him. The salawat of the angels is when they seek for forgiveness on behalf of the Prophet peace be upon him.

According to the narration of al-A’masy, Atha’ bin Abu Rabah interpreted that the salawat of Allah to the Prophet is Subbuhun Quddusun, “Most Pure and Most Holy; My mercy overtakes My wrath.”

Hence what is meant by this verse is that Allah magnifies His Prophet in front of his angels and the angels also say salawat to him which means their supplication.”

[16] Tafsir al-Azhar, Vol. 22 pg. 5770

“God’s benediction upon His prophet is clear enough. The angel’s ‘benediction’ means that they pray to God for His blessings on the Prophet. The verb in the phrase imputes God’s “conferring of blessing” and the angels’ “invoking thereof.” ‘(LL)”

[17] Tafsirul Qur’an: Translation and Commentary of the Holy Qur’an, Vol. 3 p. 458

“Al-Salah from Allah is al-Rahmah(blessing/mercy) and from the angels it is their seeking for forgiveness. The meaning of the verse as explained by Ibn Abbas is that Allah sends rahmah(blessing) on the Prophet and the angels pray for him and ask for his forgiveness.

In addition, Allah informs his servants of the status of his servant and prophet among those in heaven. In regard to that Allah praises him before the angels and the angels give Salah on him by seeking forgiveness for him.” 

 [18] Tafsir al-Maraghi, Vol. 8 pp. 33-34

“As the surah reviews the hardship and the intimidation of the Prophet had to put up with, it brought him great solace and much comfort by reassuring him that: “God and His angels bless the Prophet. Bless him, then, you that are true believers and greet him with a worthy salutation”

[19] A Thematic Commentary on the Qur’an pg. 462

“Salute him and hence the Muhammedans seldom mention his name without adding, “on whom be the blessing of God and peace! Or the like the words.”

[20] A Comprehensive Commentary on the Quran Volume 3 (Sales Translation with Notes and Emendations) 1885 page 326)

Here are Arabic dictionaries which affirm the same as what Salat means.

And Salawat of Allah: His mercy and excellence of his Praise on the faithful believers

[21] Al Muhit Fil-Lugha by Al Sahib bin Abbad

And Salat from Allah the exalted is Mercy

[22] Mukhtar Al-Sihah by Zayn Al Din Al Razi

Plural form is salawat. And Salat is supplication and seeking forgiveness.

[23] Lisan Al Arab by Ibn Manzur

And Salat from Allah is Mercy.

[24] Ibid.

And the Salat of Allah on his messenger: His mercy for him and excellence of His praise on him.

[25] Ibid.

Salat: Many linguists say it is supplication, blessings, and exaltation/glorification/praise…And Allah’s salat for the Muslims in actuality is his purification of them. And he said {on them is salawat from their Lord and His mercy} 2:157 And from the angels it is supplication and seeking forgiveness, as it is from.

[26] Al-Mufradat fi Gharib Al Quran

Salat: Supplication, Mercy, Seeking, Forgiveness; and excellence of praise from Allah on His messenger(saw) and Worship in which there is bowing and prostration…

[27] Al-Qamus Al-Muhit of Firuzabadi

And for its [Salat] meaning then it is said: supplication; and this is from the origins of its meanings. Al-Jawhari published his interpretation with this meaning.

And from it is the saying of the exalted [i.e., Allah]: [Wa salli alaihim] i.e., invoke for them. It is said, Salla Ala on someone means supplicated for him and purified him. And from it is the saying of Al A’sha: Wa Sallia Ala danniha wartasam i.e Supplicated for it so that it [wine] does not get sour or bad.

And Ibn Al Arabi said: Salat from Allah is mercy. And it is said: Salat from Angels is seeking of forgiveness and supplication.

[28] Taj Al-Arus fi Jawahir Al Qamus by Murtada Al-Zabidi

And it is said, Salat linguistically is a shared meaning between supplication, glorification/praise, mercy and blessings. From this, His saying {Yussalluna on the Prophet} cannot be shared a meaning between meanings, rather a single meaning which is glorification/praise.

[29] Ibid.

said of an angel, means He prayed for, or begged, forgiveness or pardon, for him.

[30] Lane Lexicon

And, said of God, He blessed him, meaning He conferred blessings upon him: and He had mercy on him: and He magnified him, or conferred honour upon him

[31] Ibid.

i.e., these words mean Verily God and his angels magnify the Prophet; or rather I would render them, bless the Prophet.

[32] Ibid.

God bless him and grant him salvation! (Eulogy after the name of the Prophet Mohammed)

[33] Hans Wehr Dictionary of Modern Arabic

“Al-Salah when it is from Allah means mercy/blessing.”

[34] Al-Sihah Taj al-Lughati Wa Sihah al-‘Arabiyyah, Vol. 6 pg. 384

“salla ‘ala 1 [Isl] to invoke a blessing on. salli ‘an-nabi [Isl] (bless the Prophet!) (1) exclamation of wonder or delight, as in aadi l-‘aruusa salli ‘an-nabi aaxir gamaal there’s the bride! my! isn’t she beautiful.”

[35] A Dictionary of Egyptian Arabic: Arabic-English pg. 509

“Al-Salah is supplication, and its original meanings are – mercy and – forgiveness and – magnification from Allah Most High…” 

[36] Bil Bustan Mu’jam Lughawi Mutawwal pg. 616

When the word Salah is attributed to Allah, it means that he turns towards His servants with love and affection and showers His benefactions and blessings on them (al-Baqarah 2:157).

It is in the same sense that the word Salah is used in Surah al-Ahzab: “Allah and His angels send blessings on the Prophet. O you who believe! Send your blessings on him and salute him with respect”

[37] Qur’anic Keywords: A Reference Guide

If someone were to say that this is unlikely from a linguistic point of view, because salaah in Arabic means supplication, not praise, the answer to that is that the word salaah is also connected to the word silah (gift), and there can be no doubt that praise for the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) among the higher group (angels) is one of the greatest gifts, for praise may sometimes be more important to a person than all else.

So, a good mention is a great gift. Based on this, the correct view is that sending blessings (salaah) upon him means praise for him along the higher group (the angels).

[38] Al-Sharh al-Mumti’, 3/163, 164

We can see Salah has different meanings varying upon the context it is used in. When it is used upon Allah blessing someone it means “bless”. This very example is also found various places in the Hadith.

Not only that. Their favorite Quran corpus even refutes their false claim which clearly renders the word as bless as it is supposed to be understood as.

[39] http://corpus.quran.com/wordbyword.jsp?chapter=33&verse=56

What some Christian apologists now also argue that when Muslims say “Sallahu Alayhi wa salam” which means ‘Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him’ means “Allah’s prayers be upon him” as an attempt to prove Allah somehow prays for the Prophet. This is false and a lie. “Sallahu Alayhi wa salam” in reality means nothing except ‘Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.

s.a.w. – abbreviation of the tasliya, which is ‘sall Allah al-ayhi wa sallam,’ words of honor and salutation attached to the name of Muhammed; literally means ‘may Allah bless him and grant him peace’; cf., pbuh.

[40] Encountering the World of Islam [Copyright 2005] by Keith E. Swartley page 526

When a believer mentions the Prophet – and he is rarely mentioned by name, but rather by the title Prophet (Nabi), or Messenger of God (Rasulu-Lah) it is customary to add: salla-Llahu alayhi wa sallam (‘May God bless him and give him peace’).

The blessings (salah) refer to ‘vertical’ graces descending into the soul, and ‘peace’ (sallam) to ‘horizontal grace of inward dilation which receives and stabilizes those blessings. 

[41] The New Encyclopedia of Islam revised Edition of the Concise Encyclopedia of Islam by Cyril Glassé page 364

Salla-Allahu alayhi wa sallam (‘may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon be upon him’; this blessing on the names of honoured Prophets is sometimes abbreviated in print to saaws or Sa).

[42] Sourcebook of the World’s Religions: An Interfaith Guide to Religion and Spirituality – Dr Ghulam Haider Asi page 66

صلى الله عليه وسلم means: God’s blessing and peace be upon him”

[43] A modern Arabic-English Dictionary page 698

“Ala it means to pray for, also to bless, as in the formula صلى الله عليه وسلم, God bless and keep him” 

[44] A Dictionary and Glossary of the Koran

“The four letters p-b-u-h combine to form an acronym for the phrase ‘peace be upon him’, which is the English rendering of the Arabic ‘alayhi as-salam’.

Invoking peace on another is the signature greeting used by Muslims. According to the Quran, Angels use it when greeting the blessed in paradise (for example 16:32) and people use it in greeting God’s servants. The ‘peace be upon him’ is also invoked by the Quran for the prophets including Abraham, Moses, Aaron and Elias”.

“The Peace blessing (salama) for Muhammed as the prophet of Islam is an abbreviated rendering of an Arabic formula known as Tasliya.

It consists of the invocation Salla Allahu alayhi wa-sallam (God bless him and grant him peace), which is in reverence to Muhammed… Invoking blessing and peace upon Muhammed is considered to be an expression of devotion that is endorsed by the Quran, which states ‘God and the Angels bless the prophet. O you believers! Bless him and greet him’ (Quran 33:56).

[45] Encyclopaedia of Islam page 547 – 548

“salla Allah alayhi wa-salaam: peace and blessings be upon him (abbreviation). Epithet used by pious Muslims in speech and writing as a sign of respect and honour after the name of a Prophet or holy person, especially Muhammed.” 

[46] The Oxford Dictionary of Islam. page 274

صلى الله عليه وسلم

Salla Allah a’leih wa sallam, May God bless him (Mahomet) and grant him peace.

[47] An Arabic-English Vocabulary by D. A. Cameron page 155

This one of the reasons why the Hadith has various examples of how Allah and his angels bless the Prophet and others thing as well.

Abu Humaid as-Sa’idi reported: They (the Companions of the Holy Prophet) said: Apostle of Allah, how should we bless you? He (the Holy Prophet) observed: Say:” O Allah! bless Muhammed, his wives and his offspring as Thou didst bless Ibrahim, and grant favours to Muhammed, and his wives and his offspring as Thou didst grant favours to the family of Ibrahim; Thou art Praiseworthy and Glorious.”

[48] Sahih Muslim Book 4, Hadith 807

Abu Hurayra reported that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, said, “Ibrahim (Abraham), may Allah bless him and grant him peace, was circumcised when he was eighty years old. He was circumcised with an axe (qadum).”

[49] Al-Adab Al-Mufrad Book 53, Hadith 1244

Narrated Jabir ibn Abdullah:

A woman said to the Prophet peace be upon him: Invoke blessing on me as well as on my husband. The Prophet peace be upon him said: May Allah send blessing on you and your husband.

[50] Sunan Abi Dawud Book 8, Hadith 1528

“The Messenger of God said, ‘Allah and His angels send blessings upon the right side of the rows.’”

[51] Sunan Ibn Majah Volume 1, Book 5, Hadith 1005

Whenever a person came to the Prophet with his alms, the Prophet would say, “O Allah! Send your Blessings upon so and so.” My father went to the Prophet with his alms and the Prophet said, “O Allah! Send your blessings upon the offspring of Abu Awf.”

[52] Sahih al-Bukhari Volume 2, Book 24, Hadith 574

Allah knows Best.

Arrogance is not only a sign of insecurity, but also a sign of immaturity. Mature and fully realised persons can get their points across, even emphatically without demeaning or intimidating others.
