A'salam alaikum wa'ra. wa'ba.! I can't help but to ask, who do we say to: A'salamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi in prayer? I think we are saying it to the prophet, but in that case why? Because, the prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) can not hear us, only Subhanna wa ta'ala. Anybody thought about this? I think about it at times. A'salam alaikum wa'ra. wa'ba.!
