SALLA'LLAH ALAIHI WA SALLAM

Encyclopaedia of Ismailism by Mumtaz Ali Tajddin

It means peace be upon him. When the name of the Prophet or Imams are mentioned, the listeners demonstrate their respect and devotion by bowing their heads slightly and touching with their forefinger the lips and/or the bridge of the nose and the forehead in a bipartite or triparite gesture with the chanting of salla'llah alaihi wa sallam.
