There is Qur'anic evidence for asking the blessings on Muhammad {saw}:
In the translation of the meanings of the Qur'an in Surah 33 entitled Al-Ahzab (The Confederates), ayah (verse) 56: "Allah sends His Salah on the Prophet (Muhammad), and also His angels (do so). Oh you who believe! Send your Salah on (i.e. ask Allah to bless) him (Muhammad) and greet him with the Islamic way of greeting (i.e. as-Salaam Alaykum, which means peace be upon you)" (33:56)
The Islamic scholar, ibn Kathir, entitled the section in his tafsir (i.e., explanation of the Qur'an) regarding this verse, "The Command to say Salah upon the Prophet (Muhammad)."

Salawat and its Importance & Virtues
There is Qur'anic evidence for asking the blessings on Muhammad {saw}:In the translation of the meanings of the Qur'an in Surah 33 entitled Al-Ahzab (TheConfederates), ayah (verse) 56: "Allah sends His Salah on the Prophet (Muhammad),and also His angels (do so). Oh you who believe! Send your Salah on (i.e. ask Allah tobless) him (Muhammad) and greet him with the Islamic way of greeting (i.e. as-Salaam Alaykum, which means peace be upon you)" (33:56)The Islamic scholar, ibn Kathir, entitled the section in his tafsir (i.e., explanation of the Qur'an) regarding this verse, "The Command to say Salah upon the Prophet(Muhammad)."This point is further founded in the saying by Muhammad that, "The misser is the onein whose presence I am mentioned, then he does not send the Salah upon me." Thiswas recorded by Ahmad ibn Hanbal in his Musnad.Hadith evidence for asking the blessing on Muhammad:

The evidence for sending Salah on Muhammad is not limited to the Qur'an. It is alsofound in hadith about Muhammad. Examples include:At-Tirmidhi recorded that Abu Hurayrah said:"The Messenger of Allah said, May he be humiliated, the man in whose presence I ammentioned and he does not send Salah upon me; may he be humiliated, the man whosees the month of Ramadan come and go, and he is not forgiven; may he behumiliated, the man whose parents live to old age and they do not cause him to begranted admittance to Paradise."At-Tirmidhi said that this hadith was, "Hasan gharib" (Good but only reported once).Sahih Muslim, Sunan Abu Dawud, Sunan at-Tirmidhi, and Sunan an-Nasa'i, recordedthat Abu Hurayrah said,"The Messenger of Allah said: Whoever sends one salah upon me, Allah will send tenupon him."Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal reported in his Musnad that the companion of Muhammad,Abu Talhah al-Ansari said:"One morning the Messenger of Allah was in a cheerful mood and looked happy.They said, 'Oh Messenger of Allah, this morning you are in a cheerful mood and look happy.' He said, Of course, just now someone [an angel] came to me from my Lord[Allah] and said, 'Whoever among your Ummah sends Salah upon you, Allah willrecord for him ten good deeds and will erase for him ten evil deeds, and will raise hisstatus by ten degrees, and will return his greeting with something similar to it.'"The isnad (chain of narrators) of this hadith is good.It was reported by Razin ibn Mu'awiyah in his book Jami al-Usool that Muhammadsaid:A supplication remains suspended between heaven and earth and does not ascend anyfurther until a person sends Salah on me. Do not treat me like a spare water container,send Salah upon me at the beginning of your supplication, at the end, and in themiddle.

Commentary regarding abbreviating the Salah on MuhammadMany of the Islamic scholars have instructed Muslims not to abbreviate sending theSalah on Muhammad. Shaykh Abd al-Azeez ibn Baaz said regarding the issue:"As it is prescribed to send blessings upon the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allahbe upon him) in prayer when saying the tashahhud, and it is prescribed when giving
khutbahs, saying Du’a and praying for fo
rgiveness, and after the Adhan, and whenentering and exiting the mosque, and when mentioning him in other circumstances, soit is more important to do so when writing his name in a book, letter, article and so on.So it is prescribed to write the blessing in full so as to fulfil the command that Allahhas given to Muslims, and so that the reader will remember to say the blessing whenhe reads it. So one should not write the blessing on the Prophet (peace and blessingsof Allah be upon him) in short form such as writing (S) or (SAWS) etc, or other formsthat some writers use, because that is going against the command of Allah in HisBook, where He says (interpretation of the meaning):"Send your Salaah on (ask Allah to bless) him (Muhammad), and (you should) greet
(salute) him with the Islamic way of greeting (salutation, i.e. As Salaamu ‘Alaykum)"
[ al-Ahzab (33:56) ]And that (writing it in abbreviated form) does not serve that purpose and is devoid of 
the virtue of writing 'salla Allaahu ‘alayhi wa salaam
(May Allah send blessings andpeace upon him)' in full. Moreover the reader may not take notice of it and may notunderstand what is meant by it. It should also be noted that the symbol used for it isregarded as disapproved by the scholars, who warned against it."Source:
