Ruling 1091

After completing tashahhud of the last rakʿah of the prayer, it is recommended that while one is sitting and his body is still, he should say:

اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَیْكَ أَيُّــهَا النَّبِيُّ وَ رَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَ بَـرَکَاتُهُ

assalāmu ʿalayka ayyuhan nabiyyu wa raḥmatul lāhi wa barakātuh

And after that, he must say:

اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَیْكُمْ

assalāmu ʿalaykum

And the recommended precaution is that [after saying assalāmu ʿalaykum,] one adds the sentence:

وَ رَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَ بَـرَکَاتُهُ

wa raḥmatul lāhi wa barakātuh

Or [i.e. instead of saying assalāmu ʿalaykum], one must say:

اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَیْنَا وَ عَلَىٰ عِبَادِ اللهِ الصَّالِحِینَ

assalāmu ʿalaynā wa ʿalā ʿibādil lāhiṣ ṣāliḥīn

However, if he says this, then the obligatory precaution is that he must also say after it:

اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَیْكُمْ

assalāmu ʿalaykum
