Salamo Aleykom Have recently found
out that my mother does not perform
Darood ( salawat Ibraheemiya ) in the
last rakaa of salat. I have started to
teach her this now. Is her salat valid
without the Darood ? We went on hajj
last year and I am concerned that her
hajj will not be accepted for this
reason ? Jazak Allah Kheyren for your
help on this. Najim


All perfect praise be to Allah, The Lord
of the Worlds. I testify that there is
none worthy of worship except Allah,
and that Muhammad is His slave
and Messenger.

First of all, it should be mentioned that
the exaltations on the Prophet in
the second Tashahhud is a Sunnah
according to the view of the majority of
the scholars whereas some
scholars are of the opinion that it is a
pillar of the prayer. An-Nawawi
said: “You should know that there is a
difference of opinion among the
scholars about the obligation of
saying the exaltations on the Prophet
after the second Tashahhud in the
prayer. Abu Haneefah and Maalik, and
the majority of the scholars are
of the view that it is a Sunnah and if it
is left out, the prayer is valid. Whereas
Ash-Shaafi’i and Ahmad are of
the view that it is a Waajib (an
obligation) and if it is left out, the
prayer is not valid.”

According to the Shaafi’i and Hanbali
Schools of jurisprudence, the
Ibraaheemic prayer is not a pillar,
rather it is the exaltation on the
Prophet that is a pillar, even if it
was in a form other than what is well-
known "the Ibraaheemic prayer". So, if
someone says "Allahumma salli ‘ala an-
Nabiyy" [i.e. O Allah exalt the mention
of the Prophet], then he has said the
minimum of what is legislated to say of
the exaltation on the Prophet and
this is sufficient for him.

To conclude, the prayer of your mother
is valid according to the view of the
majority of the scholars and if
she used to exalt the mention of the
Prophet with an exaltation other
than the Ibraaheemic prayer, then her
prayer is valid according to all the
scholars, but she just missed the
reward of the complete form.
As regards her Hajj, it is valid if she
had performed it in a correct manner
because Hajj has no relation with the
Ibraaheemic prayer and it has nothing
to do with the validity or invalidity of
the prayer.

Finally, you should be keen on teaching
your mother the Ibraaheemic prayer so
that she would do this act of Sunnah.

Allah Knows best.
