We read "attahiyat..." etc

Long ago, I read somewhere (or was told by someone, can't remember) that this is a conversation that took place between the Prophet (s) and Allah....

Does anyone have a reference for this???

Asalaamu Alaikum  bro


It is often quoted that Tashahud in prayer is a replication of the conversation that took place during Miraj when our Prophet saw met Allah swt for the first time:


At Tahiyyaatu lilaahi was Salawaatu wat tayibaatu

As Salaamu 'alaika ayyuhan nabiyyu wa rahmatul laahi wa barakaatuh

As Salaamu 'alainaa wa 'alaa 'ebaadillaahis saaliheen,
Ash hadu allaa ilaah ilallaah
Wa ash hadu anna Muhammadan 'abduhuu wa rasuuluh


All greetings, blessings and good acts are from You, my Lord.

Greetings to you, O Prophet, and the mercy and blessings of Allah.

Peace be unto us, and unto the righteous servants of Allah.
I bear witness that there is no deity except Allah.
And I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and messenger.




I’m not sure I know where there is a specific reference but is related by many. Anyone else have an idea?



On a side note, there’s an interesting grammatical nuance that ‘Asalaamu Alaika’ [the singular] is used to greet the Prophet saw as opposed to the usual ‘Asalaamu Alaikum’ which by definition refers to a plural.


As ever, Allah knows best.

Say: "O ye my servants who believe! Fear your Lord, good is (the reward) for those who do good in this world. Spacious is God's earth! those who patiently persevere will truly receive a reward without measure!" [39:10]

I don't have any but I have some people I can ask. But I think it is just a "story" Either way it is touching. I'll see what I can find out.

That is interesting.

I believe in Islam like the sun rising, not because I see it but because by it, I see everything else.
