# Not in the Quran: sending “blessings” when speaking about the prophet

The Traditionalist constantly pours honourifics upon the prophet Muhammad whenever he mentions his name. One is given to believe that this is a mark of piety. And it may be.

However, the formulation typically is claimed to have origins in the Quran only at 33:56 – and here it is simply impossible for the text to mean what the Traditionalist wishes it to mean: that believers should “greet” or “send blessings” upon the prophet.

And this is only one example of the type of bait and switch practiced by the Traditionalist upon the believers.
