At times people are advised to recite salat and salam to help look for a missing item. On other occasions people recite salat and salam to plead clemency and soften the heart of another.
This habit has been developed over centuries and traces back to the various verses and ahadith encouraging believers to send their salat and salam upon the Prophet ﷺ.
