    Thumbs up May God send his greetings to Mohammad & his household

    Hi,
    We Muslims had a prophet called Muhammad. There is prayer (a short saying or a short sentence) that we Muslims do to make God and the soul of prophet Muhammad happy. But I don't know how the sentence is said in English.
    This is the translated sentence from Arabic to English: [May God send his greetings to Mohammad & his household!]
    I want to say that Muslims did it yesterday night but I don't know how to say it.


    Look at my self made examples:

    1. Yesterday night, the Muslims sent a prayer to prophet Muhammad in the mosque.
    2. Yesterday night, the Muslims saluted the prophet Muhammad and his kin in the mosque.
    3. Yesterday night, the Muslims made a peace upon prophet Muhammad in the mosque.

    Would you please be nice enough to help me to say the bold written sentence correctly?

    Self made general question
    Thank you

    "Last night Muslims went to the mosque to pray for the prophet Muhammad and his kin."

    Is "yesterday night" incorrect?
    Isn't "yesterday night" used in English?

    Isn't "yesterday night" used in English? It's non-standard. We say 'last night' or 'yesterday evening'.
