Using titles of respect for the parents of Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)

Q: I'd like to know if the parents of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) passed away as Muslim? Do we use Radhiyallahu Anhu and Radhiyallahu Anha for them?

A: We are taught not to get into affairs that don't relate to us. It is not part of our belief, neither did Allah Ta`ala and Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) ask us to get into it. So why should we get into it.

There is no mention of these titles in the books of hadeeth. It is best that we remain silent. However take their names with respect.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
