I wanted to ask wheter the word ''sayyiduna''




I wanted to ask wheter the word ''sayyiduna'' has come through hadeeths of durood.As i see many duroods with this word.

Would it be a innovation to add such a word even the meaning is good?




Muhtaram / Muhtaramah


In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.


Rasulullah sallallahu `alayhi wassalam is our master. It is mentioned in a hadith (Ana Sayyidu Waladi Adam) "I am Sayyid(leader) of the children of Adam.


It is permissible to add the title of Sayyid in the Durood as it is a mark of respect and an expression of ones Imaan and Faith. (Min Adaabul Islam – Abdul Fattah Abu Ghuddah Pg. 10)
