Using words such as Allah Hafiz and Khuda Hafiz when parting

Question ID: 21962

As-salamu alaikum, Respected Mufti Sahab, I want to know whether there is any word such as Allah Hafiz and Khuda. I heard someone say that there is no word such as Khuda! People in India, Pakistan etc use the word as Allah hafiz or Khuda Hafiz when parting away as normally we say As-salamu alaikum when meeting and leaving a person. So I want to ask that whether one can say Allah Hafiz or Khuda hafiz when going away. Is this proven from any hadith. Or is it Bidah!

2 Can one say Was Salam or write Was -Salam when parting away or when closing/ending a letter etc

Awaiting your valuable reply.

Jazzak Allah!

Was Salam
