This article is a study of the supererogatory prayer called tasliya, uttered by the believer after the name of the Prophet and summarized in the expression salla allāh alay-hi wa-sallam. The topic is addressed from different perspectives: the meaning of the prayer upon the prophet; the various aims of the tasliya; and, finally, its significance for the traditionists. The recitation of the tasliya is linked with the evolution of Muslim veneration of the prophet. This practice must be considered a manifestation of Islamic religiosity and not only a religious characteristic of Sufi circles.
