Salam alaikum and Jummah Mubarak!
This week I discuss praying on the Messenger of Allah ﷺ also known as ‘salawat’ and ‘durood’, by reading from and commenting upon Ash-Shifa of Qadi ‘Iyad, translated by British scholar, Aisha Bewley, Part 2, Chapter 4, Sections 1-3 (p.250-255).
This is a modern English translation of a classical text by Qadi ‘Iyad Ibn Musa Al-Yahsubi, who lived in the 6th Century AH (12th Century CE). In true scholarly fashion, Qadi ‘Iyad himself heavily references the Quran, hadith, and other classical texts.
