Adding وبركاته in Salaam in salaah

Fatwaa ID: 678

Question:
When saying Salam in the prayer is there any fault in saying the full Salam as in ‎اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللّٰـهِ وَبَرَكاتُهُ‎?
Or should we stop after ‎اَلسَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللّٰـهِ ?

Answer:
In the Name of Allaah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salaamu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullaahi wa-barakaatuh.

According to the Hanafi legal school, it is makrooh to add وبركاته in the salaam when terminating the salaah. One should stop at ورحمة الله. However, it should be noted that it is permissible according to some of the other legal schools in the first salaam. One should follow the authoritative position of his legal school.

And Allaah Ta’aala knows best.
