    I'm really sorry for the misinformation. But, I did find this:

    In the year 700, Malik Naser bin Mansur had the salat-u-salam called on minarets before the adhans of Friday prayers. Prophets of Israil would say the tasbih before the adhan of morning prayer. Maslama bin Mahled, one of the Sahaba, as he was governor of Egypt, being commanded by hadrat Muawiya, had the first minaret built in 58 A.H., and got the muazzin Sharhabil bin Amir to say the salat-u-salam before the morning adhan." It is written in Durr-ul-mukhtar, "Saying the salat-u-salam after the adhan was first begun by Sultan Nasser Salahaddin's command in Egypt in the year 781."

    i think what seems to happen is that some people interpret these actions to mean that we are adding words to the adhan, similar to (for example) the way the shia add to the adhan that Ali :ra: is the wali of Allah.

    As for exactly how this came about, i would also be very interested to learn about this inshallah. What brother Aqdas is referring to is the salam which follows the adhan, and not the one which precedes it (which is what is being asked about here).

    Hadrat Imam `Abdul-Wahhâb Sha`rânî (`alayhi rahmatur-rabbânî) states: "kâna fî ayyâmir-rawâfiDî bi miSri shara`ut-taslîma `alal-khalîfati wa wu zarâ'ihî ba`dal-adhâna ilâ an

    tuwuffiyal-Hâkim bi'amrillâhi wa wallaw ukhtahû fasallamû `alayhâ wa `alâ wuza râ'ihâ minan-nisâ'i

    falammâ tawalal-mulkul-`âdil SalâHud-dîn inbi ayyûb fa'abTala hâdhihil-bad`a wa amaral-mu'adhdhinîna biS-Salâti wat-taslîmi `alaa rasulillâhi Sallallâhu `alayhi wa sallam badala tilkal-bid`ata wa amara bihâ ahlul-amSâra wal-qurâ' fa jazâ'ahullâhu khayran."

    "In the days of the Rawâfid rulers, in Egypt the law stated that salâm was to be sent upon the khalîfa of the time and his governors after the adhan. When Ruler, Bi-Amrullâh died and his sister became ruler,

    salâm had to be sent upon her and her female governors. But when the righteous sultan, Salâhuddîn Ayyûbî (r) became leader, he removed this bid`a (reprehensible innovation) and replaced it with the order for the mu'adhdhins of every city and district to send salât and salâm upon the Holy Messenger (saw). Allah reward him with good for doing this."

    (`Abdul-Wahhâb ash-Sha`rânî, Kashful-Ghumma, p. 98)

    I read somewhere that during/near the time of Sultan Salahuddin Ayyubi, a woman of power included her son's name before the adhan. So, Salahuddin rahimahullah removed this un-Islamic practice and replaced it with salawat.

    Wallahu a'lam

    Could someone post some info as to why the Ahl us Sunnah wal Jama'ah recite salaam on the Prophet salalahu'alyhi wasalam prior to the adhaan.
