The word “sayyiduna” is not used!

The word “sayyiduna” is not used!

The scholars of the Standing Committee were asked: 

Is it permissible for us to say when speaking of the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam):

“Sayyiduna Muhammad (our master Muhammad)” in contexts other than those which are narrated in texts such as al-salaah al-Ibraheemiyyah (sending blessings upon the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) in the prayer) etc?

They replied:

With regard to sending blessings on the Messenger of Allaah (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) in the tashahhud, there is no report – as far as we know – in which the word “sayyiduna” is mentioned, i.e., “Allaahumma salli ‘ala sayyidina Muhammad (O Allaah, send blessing upon our master Muhammad)” etc.

The same applies to the adhaan and iqaamah, in which the word “sayyiduna” is not used because it is not mentioned in the saheeh ahaadeeth in which the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) taught his companions how to send blessings upon him, and how to say the adhaan and iqaamah.

Acts of worship are tawqeefi (i.e., they are to be done exactly as described in the texts) and nothing is to be added to them that has not been prescribed by Allaah.

As for saying this word in other contexts, there is nothing wrong with it, because the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: “I will be the master of the sons of Adam on the Day of Resurrection and I am not boasting.” End quote.
