Abdullah (b. Mas`ud) said:

In the company of the Prophet (PBUH), we would chant, “Peace be upon Allah, Peace be upon so and so” as we prayed behind him. We were once told by Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) that Allah is Himself and that He is Peaceful. Therefore, you should say, “All services performed by words and deeds of worship and all good things are due to Allah” whenever one of you sits during the prayer.”

Allah’s mercy and blessings are upon you, O Prophet. Whenever Allah says this, it reaches every righteous servant in the universe, including those in the heavens and Earth. I swear that Muhammad is a servant and Messenger of Allah, and I attest that there is no God but Allah. Then he can make whatever supplication he wishes.
