Q 1: After Taslim (salutation of peace ending the Prayer), some people say: "O Allah! Send peace and blessings upon our master, Muhammad, the morning light, the seal (of the Prophets), etc." However, I hate this saying and I have been praying with them for about a month now. This used to happen before in Sudan. It is from the `Aqidah (creed) of the Tijaniyyah Tariqah (Sufi order). Is my Salah (Prayer) with them valid or not?

A: This so-called "Salat-ul-Fatih" (Remembrance from the Tijaniyyah order) is of the innovated Dhikr (Remembrance of Allah) that is not permissible to say after Salah or any other time. This is in accordance with what the Prophet (peace be upon him) taught his Ummah (Nation) in regard to Salah.May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
