I wanted to ask wheter the word ''sayyiduna''
I wanted to ask wheter the word ''sayyiduna'' has come through hadeeths of durood.As i see many duroods with this word.
Would it be a innovation to add such a word even the meaning is good?

In the Name of Allāh, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāh wa-barakātuh.
Rasulullah sallallahu `alayhi wassalam is our master. It is mentioned in a hadith (Ana Sayyidu Waladi Adam) "I am Sayyid(leader) of the children of Adam.
It is permissible to add the title of Sayyid in the Durood as it is a mark of respect and an expression of ones Imaan and Faith. (Min Adaabul Islam – Abdul Fattah Abu Ghuddah Pg. 10)
