Al-Salat-ul-Ibrahimiyyah or Salat-ul-Fatih

Q 2: Which is better, Al-Salat-ul-Ibrahimiyyah (the second part of Tashahhud) or Salat-ul-Fatih (Remembrance from the Tijaniyyah order)?

A: Al-Salah Al-Ibrahimiyyah is Islamically prescribed as it is authentically reported from the Prophet (peace be upon him). As for Salat-ul-Fatih, it is a Bid`ah (innovation in religion) which is not attributed to the Prophet (peace be upon him). It is authentically reported that the Prophet (peace be upon him) stated, Whoever introduces something into this affair of ours that is not of it, it is to be rejected. Narrated by Al-Bukhari and Muslim. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
