Peace be upon Him

PBUH is shorthand for the "Peace be upon Him" statement Muslims make when referring to people they consider to be prophets, such as Muhammad or Moses. It is the English translation of "alayhi as-salām."

You may see Muslims use PBUH in various contexts, including online and in messages, to show respect. For example, a Muslim may post on social media, "I'm just trying to live my life in accordance to the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)."
