SAW

  1. (Islam, proscribed) صلى الله عليه وسلم (peace be upon him, sallalahu aleyhi wasallam)
Usage notes[edit]

It is commonplace in Islamic culture to follow mention of the prophet Muhammad's name with (SAW) or (PBUH). These are also common honorifics for the dead in Judaism.

As with PBUH, the use of the abbreviation, rather than the full “sallalahu aleyhi wasallam”, is proscribed by some as lazy and insufficiently respectful; see discussion at Wikipedia.

Etymology 2[edit]

Noun[edit]

SAW (plural SAWs)

  1. (military, US) A squad automatic weapon or section automatic weapon, a kind of light machine gun.
