When standing up to pray sallatussalaam we imagine the prophet p.b.u.h to be listning so why do we not keep our voices very low when we know it is disrispectable to higher our voice above our prophets voice.

Assalamu Alaikum,
Praying Salatus Salaam is indeed a great act and worthy of praise. However, it carries a different ruling to being physically in front of the Prophet of Allah (i.e. in Madinah). The command is not to raise you voice over that of the Prophet in coversation and in personal prayer.

When we send the Durood on the Prophet then one should imagine that he is in front of them and can hear them , but at the same time you are asking Allah to send His Prophet blessings. This can be done loudly or quietly and both will be accepted and are allowed.

There are many evidences of this and Imam Suyuti has written a whole text on this issue alone.

May Allah give us the ability to continue sending Salams on His Messenger day and night, from near and far.

Allah knows best

Previous When Prophet Mohammeds name is mentioned people at our masjid kiss their thumbs and touch their eyes. Can you tell me where this is supported in the Quran/Hadith? I have met many muslims from around the world, especially at university and have noticed that this practice is confined to India/Pak and amongst Barelvi masjids.
