why Peace be upon him is added for Holy Prophet


Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakathuh, why do wee say may ALLAH be pleased with him/her for sahabahs or sahabiyaths when they are given the basharah of jannah. Also for Rasoolullah sallahu alaihi wa sallam may Peace be upon him is added, he is already having peace. Please explain. Jazakumullahu khairan katheera. Salams.

Alaikum salam Wa Rahmatullah.
Regarding the companions of the Holy Prophet, they are given glad tidings of jannah according to their worthiness. Some of them have been proven to be companions who did not show their credibility as far as real companionship with the Holy Prophet (s.a.w) is concerned because they were not true followers as they claimed.
It is the Holy Prophet and his pure progeny who are always in  a state of peace due to the proximity they enjoy near Allah. This is because they proved to be a real servants of Allah and struggled all their lives to show that. Therefore, there is no contradiction between the status of the Holy Prophet and his pure progeny compared to that of the sahaba. They were each accorded to their due as the Justice of Allah confirms that whosoever struggles will reach their reward in the same proportion.
Salma Alavi.
