    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 437/303/D=1433) It is not proved from the holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) as well as of Sahaba, Tabiyeen, Tab-e-Tabiyeen, Salaf Salihin to read salat and salam loudly in congregation in the state of qiyam as it is practiced today. It is bi’dah. It is mentioned in hadith that in the beginning the companion knew the method of reciting salam on holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم) but they did not know the method of durood. They asked the holy Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم), the holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) taught them the method of durood to recite durood in the following way: اللَّهُمَّ صَلِّ عَلَى مُحَمَّدٍ وَعَلَى آلِ مُحَمَّدٍ كَمَا صَلَّيْتَ عَلَى إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَعَلَى آلِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ إِنَّكَ حَمِيدٌ مَجِيدٌ - عن عبدالرحمن بن ابي ليلى قال لقينى كعب بن عجرة فقال ألا أهدى لك هدية سمعتها من النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم فقلت : بلى فأهدها لي فقال : سألنا رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم فقلنا يا رسول الله الخ .
