Placing pbuh after prophets name
« on: August 09, 2006, 06:34:14 AM »
It is common practice among muslims to place pbuh (peace be upon him) after writing or saying the prophet's name. According to the quran is there anything wrong with  placing this after the name of one who is no longer in this world

As salamu alykum wr wb.
Respectfully.

You should always check the Qur'an.
If it says you can, then do it, if it says it's a sin, then don't do it.
Simple as that.

May The Almighty Allah reward you with Paradise.
As salamu alaykum wr wb.
39:53 Say: ?O My servants who transgressed against themselves, do not despair of God\'s mercy. For God forgives all sins. He is the Forgiver, the Merciful.?

salam alekom we rahmatoallah we barakaatoo

i dont think there is anything wrong by saying "peace be upon him" but as previously mentioned, check all things from the Quran. By the way, many people forget these 4 words when mentioning other prophets which should not be forgotton:)

I agree that there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with following pboh when mentioning the prophets. It seems to me that it's only a matter of respect.

i think differentiating between the prophets is a violation, i see nothing wrong with PBUH as long as you do it to ALL the prophets

 This is an Arabic habit like saying, when mentioning someone who is dead: ra7imahu/a Allah (My God Have mercy on them). Does this exist in English?

Please dont do it, because all these phrases makes text truely annoying to read. Who does it serve to write or say pbuh but ones own ego. "See look at me, see how saved I am!". The best respect you can give those who passed the information is to take it seriously.

Peace be with you Zara,

27:59.   Say: ?Praise be to God, and peace be upon His servants whom He has selected.? Is God better, or that which you set up?

Chapter 37
79.   Peace be upon Noah among the worlds.

109.   Peace be upon Abraham.

120.   Peace be upon Moses and Aaron.

130.   Peace be upon the family of Elias.

180.   Glory be to your Lord, the Lord of greatness, for what they have described.
181.   And peace be upon the messengers.
182.   And praise be to God, Lord of the worlds.


 :peace:
If they turn away, then Say: "God is enough for me, there is no god but He, in Him I put my trust and He is the Lord of the great throne." [9:129]

Dear Zara:

Adding PBUH or SAW, etc, after the name of Muhammad as a rule is a symptom of idolization. I have written numerous supporting arguments on this point, but now I have no time to post them here. Especially considering the utterance of the name Muhammad without such words or acronym of praise as disrespect is declaration of idol-worship.

The Quran teaches us to utter the names of prophets without PBUH (Peace bu upon him) or SAW (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) or any other discriminating titles. Please REFLECT on 2:136. There you will find the answer to your question.

Peace,
Edip
