Standing up when sending Salutations of Peace upon the Prophet sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam
Question:

Did the Companions forbid people from standing when sending salutations of peace upon the Prophet sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam?
Answer:

It was never a practice of the Companions to stand when they sent salutations of peace upon the Prophet sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam, neither when visiting his grave, nor at any other time. Nor was it their custom betake themselves to his grave for the purpose of sending salutations of peace upon him sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam. Whenever they entered the Prophet’s Mosque, they would stand by it in order to send salutations upon him, although it has authentically reported from Ibn ‘Umar, may Allaah be pleased with him, that when he returned from a journey, he would enter the Prophet’s Mosque and once he had prayed, he would go to the grave of the Prophet sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam and send salutations of peace upon him. And may peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon his family and Companions.
